What Are the Benefits of Makeover Procedures for Men?
With age comes numerous aesthetic issues, including wrinkles and loose, sagging skin. These concerns often make men look older than they are and definitely older than they feel. However, plastic surgery procedures and treatments can help tighten the skin to allow men to have more toned and youthful skin. This helps to shave years off their faces and bodies while highlighting the rugged and masculine definition desired by many men.
More Fit and Defined Appearance
Throughout time, the ideal male form has not changed much. Men are expected to exude masculine strength, which means that they should have a defined appearance, including a sculpted chest and thin waistline. While diet and exercise can help lucky men achieve this appearance, many are unable to get the results they want, and it is not their fault. Pockets of stubborn subcutaneous fat can linger in the body, completely unresponsive to diet or exercise. This fat, as well as other aesthetic issues, can only be lessened with plastic surgery.
Many men feel self-conscious about the way they look. These men often hide their bodies and skin under clothing, hats, and sunglasses. But hiding your appearance is no way to live. Instead, after a male makeover procedure, men should feel more comfortable and confident in the way they look. Hopefully, no longer will they feel the need to hide themselves away; instead, they should be proud to show off their body and skin, whether at the beach, pool, or backyard.
What Male Plastic Surgery
Procedures and Combinations Are Offered?
Whether from age or biology, many men are frustrated with the aged appearance of their faces. Wrinkles and fine lines may make them look old and angry when they don’t feel that way. Luckily, there are several facial surgery procedures that tighten and rejuvenate men’s faces, including:
- Facelift surgery: tightens facial skin and muscles on the lower two-thirds of the face to remove wrinkles and sagging skin while helping give a more defined appearance to the lower face and neck
- Nose surgery (rhinoplasty): restructures the nose so that its size and shape are exactly what men want
- Brow lift surgery (forehead lift): tightens the skin on the upper face to remove wrinkles and fine lines to give a more youthful look
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty): helps to remove excess skin and reposition fat pockets in the upper and lower eyelids
- Ear surgery (otoplasty): corrects large, misshapen, or protruding ears to help reduce the ears’ prominence
These procedures can be performed individually or combined to create a more balanced facial aesthetic.
Genetics, lifestyle, and/or age can cause sagging skin and stubborn fat to develop in men, especially in the midsection and chest. However, body plastic surgery can help men achieve the trim and toned appearance they desire. These male surgical procedures include:
- Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty): removes excess fat and sagging skin from around men’s abdomen to create a more toned midsection
- Male Breast Reduction (gynecomastia surgery): removes excess male breast tissue to get rid of the presence of male breasts, or “man boobs,” so that men can have the toned chest that they’ll be excited to show off during summer
- Liposuction: removes pockets of stubborn fat from various places on the body through a vacuum-like suctioning process to allow men a more trimmed and toned physique
- Laser hair removal: permanently removes hair from unwanted places on the body, including on the chest and back for men
- Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) or thigh lift surgery: helps remove excess skin and fat on the upper arms or thighs to allow men a more toned and fit appearance
These procedures can be performed individually or combined to create more dynamic results.
While surgical procedures give dynamic results, there are many non-surgical treatment alternatives available for qualifying patients. These non-surgical procedures include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®: an injectable treatment that removes wrinkles and fine lines on the face to give men a younger and more vibrant appearance
- Cynosure® Icon™ laser treatment: a laser treatment that helps address and correct facial blemishes like wrinkles, freckles, fine lines, vascular lesions, age spots, and scars
- Skin care treatments: facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, can revitalize the appearance of male skin so that it looks healthier and more youthful
- Thread lift treatment: tightens skin, eliminates wrinkles, and corrects sagging and drooping cheeks without traditional facelift surgery
- CoolSculpting®: reduces unwanted fat pockets in the abdomen, hips, thighs, neck, and back by freezing fat cells
Non-surgical cosmetic procedures often cannot replicate the results provided by surgery.

Will I Have Scars After a Male Makeover?
If your makeover is surgical, then Dr. Mabourakh will need to make an incision(s), meaning that you will have some scarring. However, Dr. Mabourakh strives to make these incisions as small and discreet as possible. Scars will fade over time.
If you are having a non-surgical treatment performed, then you will not need to worry about any scars.
