When it comes to being concerned about appearance and a trim figure, more men are looking to plastic surgery for concerns about their physique and appearance. Aesthetic treatments like tummy tuck, liposuction, and facial rejuvenation procedures are gaining popularity with men.
At MacDonald Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeannie MacDonald answers your questions about which men’s procedures and treatments can help you attain your goals. Here are some of the most popular men’s treatments.
Tummy Tuck for Men
Unfortunately, no amount of strict dieting or number of crunches or sit-ups can help restore and flatten abdominal muscles that have been stretched out from weight fluctuations or age. Tummy Tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a rejuvenation procedure designed to remove excess skin and fatty tissue as well as tighten the underlying muscles for a leaner, trimmer-looking abdomen.
Liposuction for Men
Liposuction removes stubborn fat deposits to produce a chiseled, sculpted look. Men’s liposuction is effective because they typically have thicker, denser skin that bounces back. Typically, men’s liposuction can eliminate fat in the:
- Waist/Love handles
Often, liposuction and tummy tucks are teamed to treat pockets of fat remaining on the abdomen and flanks to restore your trimmer, more defined figure.
As liposuction and tummy tucks are body contouring procedures rather than weight loss procedures, it’s essential to be at a healthy, stable weight prior to surgery. Maintain your results by continuing your healthy diet and exercise routine after your body contouring procedures.
Male Facial Procedures
Facelift for Men
Men’s skin ages and begins to lose collagen and elastin, often resulting in wrinkles, drooping skin around the jaw, and furrows forming around the mouth and chin. Facelifts restore your appearance and help you look 10-15 years younger by tightening muscles, reducing fat, and removing excess skin.
Neck Lift for Men
For men, a “weak” looking chin can significantly impact overall appearance and confidence. Neck lifts are procedures to enhance the definition of the chin, jawline, and neck for that chiseled look. The neck lift procedure, which removes/repositions excess fat, skin, and other tissue, aims to bring balance to facial proportions and improve symmetry.
Brow Lift for Men
Skin begins to droop as we age, forming wrinkles and deepening natural folds. It’s particularly noticeable on the forehead. Losing the underlying support in the skin results in falling eyebrows and drooping upper eyelids, which can create an angry or tired expression. A brow lift can help restore your youthful appearance.
Spa Treatments for Men
Neuromodulators (Xeomin and Botox) for Men
More men are worrying about wrinkles. Neuromodulators like Botox® and Xeomin® quickly smooth and refresh the skin’s appearance by preventing repetitive muscular motions. Neuromodulators don’t inhibit movement in other untreated areas, so you won’t be left with a stony, emotionless-looking appearance.
AFA Chemical Peels for Men
For many men, facials and chemical peels have become an essential part of their skincare regimen. Amino Acid Filaggrin chemical peels (AFA chemical peels) refresh your skin’s appearance to help you reclaim an overall healthy look. They contain naturally occurring antioxidants and amino acids, so they are a perfect option for most skin types. They help your skin retain moisture for a refreshed, renewed, and youthful appearance. AFA chemical peels are effective exfoliants because they cause minimal irritation and sun sensitivity.
