There’s nothing more important than being comfortable in your own skin. For years, cosmetic enhancement seemed to be targeted solely toward women, even though men can benefit equally from the techniques and corrections.
Fortunately, male plastic surgery is starting to see a surge, as more men are feeling comfortable caring about their physical appearances.
Although the actual techniques hardly vary between male and female plastic surgery, the desired contours do, and it is essential to find a plastic surgeon with extensive experience in male plastic surgery.
Which Plastic Surgery Procedures Are Seeing the Most Significant Increases in Male Patients?
When it comes to cosmetic concerns, plastic surgery offers solutions in nearly every way imaginable. If you’re considering male plastic surgery, Dr. Mabourakh performs a variety of face and body contouring procedures.
Your eyes play a significant role in how you look and the emotions that you display. Sagging upper eyelids and puffy bags beneath the eyes contribute to a prematurely aged appearance and often prevent you from being able to show all those emotions, such as happiness or excitement.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure that targets aging eyes by eliminating excess skin and fat and repositioning tissues to result in a more youthful eye appearance. This procedure can be especially beneficial for men to restore self-confidence when entering a new job market or social scene.
Neck Lift Surgery
A strong and angular jawline has long been considered an attractive trait in men. However, not every man is gifted with such a jawline or can maintain that jawline shape once the signs of aging sets in. Jowls and excess fat beneath the chin often interfere with the optimal squared-off jawline, and these can traits can be easily addressed with cosmetic surgery.
Neck lift surgery (lower rhytidectomy) addresses sagging skin, vertical banding, and excess fat on the jawline and neck to highlight masculine facial contours. This technique is commonly combined with facelift surgery to restore or maintain a balance between facial features.
A misshapen nose can be genetic or the result of a traumatic accident. Regardless, having an irregular shaped or sized nose can create both aesthetic and functional concerns for a man. This is why rhinoplasty (nose surgery) has long been one of the most popular procedures for men. Nose surgery manipulates the cartilage, tissue, bone, and skin of the nose to correct sizing problems, eliminate nasal humps or bumps, rotate nasal tips, and more.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Even with healthy diets and trips to the gym, some men struggle to achieve the flat, trim, and sculpted abdominal contour they strive for. And sometimes, this is due to no fault of their own. Some men’s genetics simply do not allow them to achieve a contoured midsection, and, instead, love handles and abdominal pooches remain.
For men struggling to eliminate that remaining pocket of fat on their abdomen or waistline, tummy tuck surgery with liposuction of the waist may help. This procedure combination removes stubborn fat pockets, trims excess skin, and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles.
No man wants to develop significant breast tissue. Unfortunately, genetics, hormones, medications, drug use, and excess weight can all contribute to this. The excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin in the male breast are known as gynecomastia, and they can be easily surgically reduced.
Gynecomastia surgery uses liposuction or excision techniques to eliminate this excess and restore a firmer and flatter male chest contour.
As you get older, your skin develops creases and wrinkles, which can result in confidence and self-esteem issues. Some of these wrinkles are created in response to the natural breakdown of tissues; others are due to repeated muscle movements. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that reduces expression-causing wrinkles by temporarily interfering with the chemical signals that cause the muscles to contract.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is particularly beneficial for treating lines around the eyes and forehead, such as crow’s feet or frown lines.
