An increasing number of men are turning to plastic surgery to enhance their appearance. For some, cosmetic surgery can help them address a feature they wish to improve upon, such as a hump on the nose or a weak chin. For others, cosmetic procedures can rejuvenate the appearance.
When it comes to cosmetic surgery for men, there are often special considerations which must be taken into account. It’s important to find a surgeon who understands the unique requirements of men. Most men are seeking a natural look and do not want to appear too “done” or too feminine. This often requires a conservative approach, making subtle changes that create a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
According to the American Association of Facial Plastic Surgery (AAFPRS), the most common cosmetic procedures that their members performed on male patients in 2010 were Botox, rhinoplasty, and hyaluronic acid injections like Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm. Other common procedures included hair transplant surgery, blepharoplasty, scar revision, facelift surgery, and skin resurfacing techniques like chemical peels and laser treatments.
Many men are now opting for facial rejuvenation techniques like the facelift, browlift and eyelid lift. On male patients, these procedures are usually better performed using a conservative approach to avoid an overly feminine appearance. Eyelid surgery can improve drooping or heavy upper eyelids, a common concern among male patients, but many men choose to leave the fine lines around the eyes for a more natural appearance. Plastic surgery on the neck and chin is also very popular among men. The necklift, sometimes with liposuction, can improve a heavy or sagging neck appearance, while chin implants can add prominence and definition to a weak or receding chin. In many cases, less invasive treatments are ideal for male patients seeking a more natural result. Botox can improve dynamic wrinkles like frown lines, while there are a variety of injectable fillers to enhance facial contours, restore lost volume, and soften facial lines and creases. Skin resurfacing techniques like laser- and light-based treatments, and chemical peels can improve fine lines, and uneven skin tones. Finally, proper skin care is an essential component to the care of a man's face; Dr. Batniji and his staff keep it simple for men so that his male patients use a few products, such as skin cleanser, moisturizer and serum, with excellent active ingredients.
