As they get older, men’s lifestyles change a lot, and these changes may have a huge impact on their look. Their diet, as well as exercise patterns, can fluctuate and they usually don’t get as much sleep as they used to. The number of men who opt for plastic surgery in the United States is only growing. There are a number of factors for this, but it can be helpful to know what to expect if you’re considering a procedure with the help of your board-certified plastic surgeon. Here are some of the most popular options among men for both surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation.
Botox is an injectable treatment that can effectively reduce wrinkles and fine lines with a quick and easy treatment session. It uses a form of bacteria called botulinum toxin type A to block chemical signals that normally cause movement, meaning it can relax furrowed brows and reduce the appearance of wrinkles that come from squinting and other regular facial movements. It can last for three to six months, after which you can opt for re-treatment.
This is a popular option for men looking to enhance their profile for a more pronounced and masculine look. Also called a nose job, it can reshape the nose and also correct functional problems from injuries. It’s most often paired with surgical procedures like chin augmentation to balance the face and provide more projection. Although it can require significant downtime, rhinoplasty produces long-term results and can achieve a prominent, chiseled look.
Also called blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can create a more youthful and awake look for both the upper and lower eyelids. As aging happens, it’s common to experience sagging and puffiness around the eyes that can make you look more tired or worn out than you really feel. Eyelid surgery can be combined with other facial procedures like a facelift or brow lift for best results, or it can be performed on its own. In either case, the result is a more youthful and awake look around the eyes.
Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that can remove stubborn fat from areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, arms, back, chest, or chin. If diet and exercise don’t seem to produce the results you want for your body, then liposuction is an excellent option. It uses tiny incisions, a cannula, and a surgical vacuum to remove fatty tissue with minimal downtime. The results are long-lasting if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, meaning you can enjoy a slimmer, more toned appearance for years to come.
Gynecomastia is a condition that men often experience that creates the appearance of male breasts. This can be frustrating and embarrassing, especially when diet and exercise don’t get rid of it. Gynecomastia surgery can sometimes be performed with liposuction or may require a more surgical lift approach. In either case, gynecomastia surgery can reduce the appearance of enlarged breasts for a masculine, defined chest.
