Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
It’s not just for women anymore. These are the top 3 facial plastic surgery procedures for men:
Whether it is a double chin or loose and sagging skin, the neck is a problem area for many men and women. We approach the concerns of men a little bit differently though, and the options can be tailored to each person’s concerns and desired results.
Kybella is a great non-surgical option to dissolve fat over time with a series of injections. For patients who do not mind a short period of downtime, neck liposuction remains the tried and true method of quickly and precisely eliminating fat in the neck.
However, if you are also seeing sagging skin you will need to consider a procedure such as a necklift to tighten the skin as well as the deeper muscle layer in the neck to help restore a sharper profile.
Many of you would be surprised to know just how many men are getting Botox (or “Brotox” as some jokingly refer to it). The overwhelming majority of men we see for Botox are working professionals in their 30s, 40s, and 50s looking for a quick improvement without the hassle of having surgery.
Common areas to treat include using Botox to soften an angry appearance around the brow or reduce the crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes.
An eyelid lift can provide a nice improvement to the tired, heavy look that many men begin to notice as they start to get excess sagging skin around the eyelids and bulging of fat creating a puffy look.
Here’s the secret. Unless you want to look like Kenny Rogers you absolutely must be conservative. It is appropriate for men to have some heaviness around the eyes when compared to women. With that in mind, you need a surgeon who understands the aesthetics involved for men. It is unfortunately too easy to overdo it when it comes to an eyelid lift or blepharoplasty for a man, and you run the risk of ending up with an artificial or feminized look.
There is some downtime with eyelid lift surgery, but most patients are back to work within just a few days and can slowly increase their activity level and resume heavy exercise within a couple of weeks.
