These days, more men are electing to have plastic surgery than ever before. Some of the reasons for the surge include wanting to look youthful for their life partners, returning to the dating scene following a divorce, and needing to stay at the “top of their game” in a competitive job market.
When it comes to the changes that men are seeking, many of them want to eliminate the puffiness and sagginess around their eyes because it ages them.
Men don’t want someone to look at them and say, “It’s obvious that he had work done.”
Instead, men measure good plastic surgery by how natural it looks; they don’t want it to be obvious. When a man begins to lose youthful volume in his face and his jowls become to sag, the only way to address it is through surgery.
It’s not that men are afraid of going under the knife. Rather, they’re afraid that the results will be overly noticeable, and that others will know that they saw a surgeon.
Our Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky treats male patients frequently, although overall, men make up only a fraction of all patients who seek cosmetic improvements. Often, he uses Botox and fillers to smooth out the intense facial expression that’s deeply engraved between the brows. These injections can also fill out the hollowness that develops under the eyes, a telltale sign of aging, and add youthful volume to cheeks that can sometimes be a substitute for a more invasive surgical lift.
While women are often inclined to have a breast augmentation or a facelift done first, men are typically drawn towards eyelid surgery as their first procedure. Men opt for eyelid surgery because it corrects the tired look that’s caused by heavy upper lids, which can affect vision in some people.
Subtle Procedures for the Male Body
Professional athletes, such as bodybuilders will have liposuction to achieve that chiseled look, specifically around the flanks and abdomen, where other men may prefer CoolSculpting, a less aggressive approach to fat reduction.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body contouring procedure that freezes stubborn fat, including love handles, that men have trouble getting rid of despite countless workouts at the gym.
These popular procedures for men involve minor tweaking; they have minimal downtime and can effectively eliminate bothersome problems without it being obvious – but you’ll look better.
