Male Plastic Surgery in Rockford, IL

While many people associate plastic surgery with women, the percentage of men having cosmetic procedures has grown steadily in the past decade. Men who want to look younger, feel handsome and achieve a more toned body are increasingly turning to plastic surgery to achieve their aesthetic goals.

Dr. Pedro Rodriguez is a top board-certified plastic surgeon who has treated male patients throughout his career. Because of subtle differences in the way plastic surgery should be performed on male patients, men should always seek treatment from a surgeon who has experience working on male patients to avoid results that “feminize” their features. Dr. Rodriguez utilizes refined techniques to help men look more attractive without sacrificing any masculinity.

The Pedro Rodriguez Difference

Dr. Pedro Rodriguez is an elite plastic surgeon who performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He specializes in breast, body and face procedures. Merging advanced techniques with his keen eye, he produces transformative results for his patients that are both attractive and natural-looking.

Patients in Rockford choose Dr. Rodriguez because of his outstanding surgical skills and attentive care. Through decades of experience, he understands precisely how to rejuvenate the face and achieve appealing breast and body contours. He takes pleasure in helping his patients build confidence by reaching their aesthetic goals.


Overall, men are less concerned with wrinkles than women. This happens because a man’s collagen density is higher, which slows the aging process. Additionally, fine lines can make a male face look more dignified rather than less attractive. When performing surgery on male patients, Dr. Rodriguez is careful not to pull the skin too tight to avoid giving the face a more feminine appearance. He is also strategic with his incision placements because while scars are relatively easy to hide along a female patient’s hairline, men tend to have less hair and a receding hairline. Dr. Rodriguez may make the incision on the neck if the patient wants to keep facial hair. Because men have more blood vessels in the face, they have a shorter recovery period than most women.

While Dr. Rodriguez can perform all facial procedures on men, the most requested procedures for men include:


Men have less bone structure around their eyes, making them more likely to develop sunken eyes with bags underneath. Eyelid surgery is an effective way to rejuvenate the eyes.

Neck Lift

Men who want a chiseled jawline and smoother neck contours choose neck lift to eliminate the jowls that round the bottom of their face and remove the sagging neck skin that develops with age.


Although male noses tend to be larger, some men want to change the size of their nose to match the other proportions on the face. Dr. Rodriguez can also flatten a bump on the bridge or change the projection of the nose so that it is at a 90-degree angle to the face.

Body Procedures for Men

When performing body procedures on male patients, Dr. Rodriguez considers the anatomical differences in male bodies. Due to testosterone, a man’s skin is about 25% thicker than a woman’s, which necessitates slightly different incision styles. Moreover, male bodies tend to be thicker: men want to look toned, but not svelte like many women do, so body contouring goals tend to be different for male patients.

Among the most popular body procedures for men are:


Although men like bodies that have some mass, pockets of fat can detract from a more toned frame. With liposuction, Dr. Rodriguez suctions out unwanted fat cells and molds contours that achieve the patient’s desired masculine shape.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia gives the male chest a fuller, curvier appearance, resembling female proportions. By removing the excess glandular tissue, fat and skin, Dr. Rodriguez helps his patients to reestablish a flatter, more traditionally male chest.
