The number of men seeking plastic surgery has skyrocketed in recent years, and the reasons why they seek cosmetic enhancement are as different as the men themselves. Dr. Michaels’ practice understands that men have unique needs and his practice caters to those specific needs. Dr. Michaels also knows that men want their procedures to be discreet. At Dr. Michael’s practice, men will never have that “done look.” In this blog post, Dr. Joseph Michaels shares several ways men benefit from plastic surgery.
A Chance to Turn Back the Clock
Facial rejuvenation is a very common concern for male patients. Deeper facial lines and wrinkles can make an unwelcomed appearance on the face as men get older, while dark under-eye circles and other signs of stress can add to a tired, worn out look. For men seeking to make minor tweaks to their facial appearance, Botox can smooth out wrinkles and lines around the eyes, eyebrows, forehead, mouth and nose. Dermal filler treatments restore volume to areas that have become sunken or hollow over time. For men struggling with sagging, loose skin on the cheeks, forehead and chin, facelift surgery can remove excess skin and retighten the remaining skin for a rejuvenated appearance. And men who suffer from droopy or puffy eyelids can benefit from eyelid surgery, which eliminates hanging fat and tightens skin for younger-looking, brighter eyes.
A Boost in Self-Confidence
Some men seek plastic surgery to improve a physical feature that has caused them to feel embarrassed, self-conscious or unsatisfied about their appearance. Male breast reduction corrects gynecomastia, a condition that corrects overly large breasts. The procedure removes excess fat, tissue and skin, flattening and toning the man’s chest. Men who are embarrassed by “love handles,” a “muffin top” or flabby arms and thighs can benefit from body contouring. Procedures like tummy tuck surgery, body lift and liposuction remove loose, unwanted skin and fat for a slimmer, more toned figure. By improving these features, men experience a boost in confidence and self-image.
Healthier, Refreshed Skin
The idea of men pursuing facials and chemical peels may be mocked by some, but skin rejuvenation treatments offer serious health benefits. Overexposure to the sun damages the outer skin, making the skin look dry, flaky and leathery. Facial rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels and laser skin therapies remove sun damaged skin and promote the production of collagen, a protein that helps keep the skin firm and elastic. In short, skin rejuvenation treatments not only promote beautiful skin, but healthier skin as well.
