Men are Making Changes

The stigma that cosmetic procedures are only for women has almost completely dropped off. There are procedures, such as Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation and Liposuction that men have been getting for decades, but the doors have been opened for men seeking to improve their image in other ways. Here are some procedures that more men are taking advantage of:

1.    Hooded eyelids and bulging under eyelids can impede vision and add years to anyone’s appearance. They tend to be extremely prominent in some men, which can also cause a tired, sickly or gruff appearance. While wisdom comes with age, these features can be off putting. Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids to look more alert, healthy and friendly.

2.    Deep forehead creases above and between the brows also can make an appearance look always concerned, gruff or scolding. Softening these deep wrinkles can also soften people’s perception of how you’re feeling so that you’re not misunderstood. Crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and pock marks that ripple and indent the skin contribute to a possibly harsh appearance. Botox and can be used in conjunction with Injectables, such as Juvederm, to smooth and make an appearance more welcoming. Botox, affectionately called Brotox for men, can affectively change your appearance without any downtime. This is very appealing to people with busy schedules who don’t have time for a surgery induced recovery.

3.    Masculine features, such as a flat chest and “V” shaped torso can boost confidence. Maybe due to genetic predisposition, age, medicine side effects, or weight gain, these masculine features have been replaced with male breasts (gynecomastia) and a bulging waist with a spare tire around the middle. Many men have applied the benefits of surgery to sculpt their upper body with Male Breast Reduction and torso with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) to remove fat and extra skin or just Liposuction to remove fat. A non surgical option for men who want a quick in office procedure that provides effective fat reducing results is Sculpsure, which uses laser energy to melt fat away.

4.    While in some cultures a double chin is a sign of prosperity, in America it isn’t received as desirably. Unfortunately, this is one of the most difficult areas to address naturally with diet and exercise. Many people want to restore their chin and facial definition. Fortunately, there are surgical and non surgical options to remove the excess fat in this area. If there is under chin fat and stretched neck skin, this can be removed with Neck Liposuction and a Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty). If the skin is firm enough then the most effective non surgical option to remove submental fullness is Kybella. It is an injectable of deoxycholic acid to destroy fat cells so they can no longer accumulate.

Men are made to feel welcome and comfortable in our office with our staff. There are many options to discuss how to achieve the changes you’re looking for, surgical and non surgical. To schedule a consultation to discuss the changes you’d like to make, visit www.davinciplastic.com.

Plan Your Procedures

While you may initially come into my office to address an immediate beauty need, we will take the time in our consultation to talk about your long term beauty goals and to help you with a plan. This plan may start off with some non invasive treatments, such as a Liquid Facelift using a variety of injectables to touch up and rejuvenate some crows feet, furrowed brows or mouth parenthesis creases. Then it might build into a 5 to 10 year plan for a mini facelift to address slightly sagging jowls and neck or Blepharoplasty to open up drooping eyelids for a brighter, more rested looking eye area. Either way, this plan should not only focus on immediate needs, but incorporate treatments for future youth restoration goals and maintenance.

Cosmetic surgery and non invasive treatments can easily be performed all year long, however, there are certain times of year that lend themselves to easily incorporate the rest and recovery that make it more convenient. Also, there are also certain issues you may want to address before a special event (think: high school reunion or holiday party) or time of year (think: bikini season).

Here is a seasonal surgery guide with suggestions for planning your procedure:

Fall

After the activity of summer and before the flurry of winter festivities, the fall season offers a perfect break in the social calendar for most people. This means that recovery time away is easy to schedule. Also, the cooler weather means clothes with more coverage and comfort. After getting any kids and grandkids settled into school, the scheduled routine or empty nest would allow for effortless predictability and rest for scheduling a surgery. It also will allow plenty of healing time for you to approach the holidays recovered and looking great. This is a good time for anything from Liposuction, Blepharoplasty, Facelift to Breast Augmentation. Fall is my first choice for cosmetic procedures.

Winter

This season offers some good opportunities for cosmetic surgeries. Before the new year, the injectables are the best because you can’t afford downtime between Thanksgiving and New Years, but January is the perfect month to kick off the New Year with a big step towards your beauty and healthy body goals. Winter scarves and turtlenecks easily cover the bruising or swelling from Kybella or a Facelift. Also the bulkier clothes will conceal any over night changes to the body from a Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. The Martin Luther King and Presidents Day holidays allow for long weekends and time off work without the usual holiday social schedule.

Spring

These are the months to rejuvenate and refresh yourself along with the start of a new season, and to prepare for the summer season. Body image procedures such as Liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift, and Breast Augmentation are popular this time of year. Also, by this time, some of the results from New Years resolutions for weight loss have a chance to kick in and become a habit so that body contouring can have optimal results.

Summer

Surgery can be a success in the summer, but it’s crucial to stay out of the sun. The heat and sweat can be irritating during recovery. It’s always a great time for injectables like Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra since these injectables are in and out so you’re on your way to looking fabulous for your vacation. Another fabulous non invasive, body contouring rpocedure to trim away small puches of stubborn fat is SculpSure. Popular summer break surgical procedures are Rhinoplasty and Otoplasty between the school years.

Men Are Getting Cosmetic Procedures in 2017

More men are seeking enhancements than ever before.  
Their perspective on it has changed and they believe cosmetic surgery creates a competitive career edge… and is a confidence booster. Also, men today see plastic surgery and non invasive cosmetic treatments as part of their regular health care routine, like going to the gym or eating healthy.

Botox for Bro’s = Brotox
Botox for men has been coined  -“Brotox.” Brotox can reshape a tired or gruff appearance into a more friendly, rested look. Men also like this because there is no down time – so no productivity loss. Brotox is often done in our office during a lunch break or in between meetings. Also, Brotox allows for gradual minor – subtle changes. Men love being told that they look more rested, happier or healthier…and no one but you knows why!

Move Over– Mommy Makeovers — Here Comes Daddy Do Overs
The most recent years have seen big increase in “Mommy Makeovers” to help women get their pre- baby body back. It’s a well deserved group of rejuvenation procedures for women who have sacrificed physically and emotionally for their their family. Yes, The effects are different for men, but raising kids takes its toll on men’s bodies too. So …They want to look and feel younger and have many more years to enjoy their children and grandchildren. This is also why more men are choosing to get “Daddy Do Over” surgeries as part of their health routine.

More Popular Procedures for Men…

  • Along with Brotox, Injectables like Juvederm are popular because they don’t require down time.
  • They minimize deep forehead creases, crow’s feet or nasolabial folds.
  • They can also fill in pock marks that give the skin a smoother appearance.

Blepharoplasty reduces hooded eyelids, bulging under eyelids that can age and impede vision. This rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids to rejuvenate a tired or gruff appearance.

Male Breast Reduction corrects the gynecomastia (male breasts) to sculpt their upper body and help restore their feeling of masculinity.

Men want that masculine “V” shaped torso again, which can be restored with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) to remove fat and extra skin or Liposuction to remove fat.

Through roughhousing and sports, guys are more likely to have their nose broken, which affects the appearance, and ability to breathe. Rhinoplasty restores the appearance and breathing caused by blocked nasal passages.

 

Men still desire a strong chin as a sign of masculinity, which can be accomplished by a Chin Augmentation with implants or Injectable Fillers. Also a double chin can be removed with Liposuction or Kybella.

 

Men, let’s talk about what I can do to help you with confidence, performance and satisfaction with your appearance and physique.
