Men… are you letting women have all the plastic surgery fun? Cosmetic enhancement isn’t just for the ladies; men can, and do, benefit from plastic surgery too. What procedures do our male patients love? Let’s take a quick peek.
Are your eyes making you look older than you are? Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the eyelid area. This procedure can correct drooping eyelids, bags under the eyes, and more for a rejuvenated, refreshed look. Men love this procedure. Last year more than 206,000 blepharoplasty procedures were performed in the U.S., many of these on men.
Diet and exercise aren’t always enough. Stubborn fat, those pockets of fat that stick around even after lifestyle changes, can extremely difficult to eliminate on your own. The solution? Liposuction. This treatment isn’t a weight loss treatment, but rather a tool to reshape and contour your body. When properly performed liposuction can be the key to finally showing off your hard work at the gym. Men most commonly opt for liposuction on the belly and the neck. Recovery after liposuction is minimal. You’ll typically be back to work in just a few days and back to most normal activities in just a few weeks.
If you’re looking to reshape and refine without surgery, try CoolSculpting. This revolutionary procedure uses cold to freeze away fat cells noninvasively. It’s a great option for men that want to lose a little belly fat, but that aren’t interested in liposuction surgery.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia, or enlargement of the male breast tissue, is a condition that affects many men. It can be embarrassing and causes a great deal of social and emotional discomfort. We offer several different options for the treatment of gynecomastia. The most popular is liposuction. Excess fat from the breast area is gently suctioned away using Ultrasonic Liposuction. This technique uses ultrasound to liquefy fat so it can be easily removed. Recovery time is minimal with many patients back to regular activities (except for heavy lifting and strenuous activities) in just a couple of days.
Loose skin in the lower face can be treated with a facelift. This procedure is very popular amongst male patients that are looking to stay ahead in their careers. In their late 50s and early 60s they know they have just as much to offer as younger men and want to look as young as they feel. In addition to the traditional facelift we offer the La Petite Lift, a lifting option that is performed in about an hour with a minimal recovery period.
If you want to improve your appearance without surgery, try Botox. This procedure is very popular (the most popular cosmetic procedure by far) with both men and women. In fact, men love it so much that a nickname has been established for male Botox, Brotox. This treatment is a great choice for relaxing those wrinkles caused by overactive muscles like crow’s feet and forehead lines.
