Cosmetic surgery is no longer seen for women only. As stereotypes, and as more people understand the benefits of plastic surgery, a larger variety of candidates evolve. The number of male cosmetic surgery procedures has gone up over 60% since 2000. Just like women, however, men have their own reasons to seek cosmetic surgery; these include heading off the early signs of aging, to become more competitive at their employment, or to reenter the dating scene. Whatever the trigger, it is nice to see men are taking advantage of what cosmetic surgery has to offer.
Male Face Lift
When the negative effects of time and nature appear on your face, it’s time for rejuvenation. Nasolabial folds, those deep lines that form from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, are one of the common imperfections in the facial skin that appear with age. The jawline also becomes less defined as skin sags due to lost elasticity. Fat deposits settle after traveling down the midface from higher locations, which are now lacking volume.
Male Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are an important part of daily function and one of the first features others will notice about a person’s appearance.Over the course of years they can become puffy and sag with excess fat and skin.
The stretched eyelids cause the muscles to weaken, making it difficult to fully open the eyes. For a younger look, eyelid surgery on the upper and/or lower lids can brighten the face and make a person look more rested. Not only do drooping eyelids cause a person to look drained, but they can also block peripheral vision.
Male Liposuction is a moderately invasive procedure designed to eliminate excess fatty tissue across the abdomen, ‘love handles’, chest, or other targeted area. The procedure immediately improves the body’s shape and contour; sculpting an aesthetically appealing appearance.
Performed as an outpatient procedure, Dr. Kessler’s Liposuction normally takes between one to fours to complete. He begins with several tiny incisions in the treatment area; through these he will insert a small cannula (tube), which will move back and forth to loosen the deposits of fatty tissue. Vacuum suction is then used to remove the excess fat. Various types of Liposuction are available; the technique will depend on their specific patient.
Male Breast Reduction
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that removes unnecessary breast fat and skin tissue in women suffering from macromastia, or overly large breasts. The excess weight on the chest can cause chronic physical.
In addition, it could cause psychological conditions, including breathing difficulty, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, postural issues, skeletal deformities, chafing and/or skin irritation and emotional suffering related to poor self esteem. The results and benefits of reduction mammoplasty are ranked among the highest in plastic surgery patient satisfaction.
Dr. Kessler Discusses Injectables & Fillers:
Botox Cosmetic is the number one nonsurgical treatment for both men and women. These tiny injections of Botulinum Toxin work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles (referred to as dynamic wrinkles). This injectable works best on the forehead, between the eyebrows (Frown Lines), and around the eyes (Crow’s Feet).
A Botox treatment takes only minutes in Dr. Kessler’s office. Patients are able to return to work the same afternoon. The results from Botox will take about two weeks to begin showing, and will continue to improve over the next several weeks. For optimum results, patients will need to come in for a repeat treatment in about four to five months.
Some facial fat, such as that which forms in the jowls, can create an older appearance and is considered undesirable. However, in the cheeks, fat pads are what contribute to a youthful look. When they are no longer prominent, we want them back.
One of the newest and most powerful Dermal Fillers available today is Voluma XC. The smooth injectable will add volume to the cheeks and jaw, as well as other areas of the face. Voluma is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance occurring naturally in the body. The filler is premixed with an anesthetic, making injections virtually painless.
The smoothing benefits from Voluma can be seen immediately. The filler also encouraged the body’s production of Collagen, continuing to improve the appearance over the coming months. The results from Voluma can last for up to two years.
