The demand for male plastic surgery procedures has been on the rise in the United States throughout the past decade. As men are breaking away from the stereotype that plastic surgery is for women only, they are finding a way to achieve the appearance they want through cosmetic changes. Every year, men are making up a larger portion of the patients seen for surgeries like rhinoplasty, facelift, and more. If you’re a prospective male patient looking for more information about the procedures right for you, read on for the list of top most requested procedures for men.
It’s hard to make it through life without developing scars here and there. From small kitchen accidents to skinned knees from childhood, most men and women have a few stories to tell about the scars on their bodies. That doesn’t mean that everyone is happy about it, of course. Scar removal is becoming more and more popular as treatment options are refined. Keloid scars are a special classification of scarring that can also be addressed through plastic surgery. Learn more about keloid scars to determine if you have experienced them and what you can do to correct them.
The cheeks are an important feature of the face, providing proportion and structure to a person’s overall appearance. As one of three facial landmarks, alongside the chin and nose, cheeks that are too flat or hollow-looking can throw off the balance of your face.
With Renee Zellweger’s “new look” taking the media by storm these past few weeks, the words plastic surgery have been on gossip fodder. The constant did-she or didn’t-she debate is a quiet rumble online, on TV, and in fashion magazines, basically everywhere you look. She’s not talking, and it seems that she’s enjoying the attention, but would you? Many prospective cosmetic surgery patients are terrified at the idea of being found out. There’s nothing wrong with having “a little work done” to maintain or improve your look, especially if it makes you happy. Even so, many would rather have their surgery in private. Can you hide your plastic surgery from friends, family, and coworkers? And should you really bother?
Your neck might be telling everyone how old you are without you even knowing it. In fact, the neck is notorious for being one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Cleansing, moisturizing, massaging, and exfoliating won’t do a whole lot once those lines have started to form and the skin begins to sag. You’ll need something much more direct and much more effective to get the job done right. Neck lift surgery can reverse many of the adverse effects, but do you know when it’s time to book that neck lift consultation?
Nonsurgical anti-aging treatments are widely available these days, offering men and women many great options to achieve a more youthful look. Injectable treatments like Botox and Juvederm will work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but they are vastly different treatments. Each takes a unique approach in treating various signs of aging, yet both treatments are often mentioned in the same sentence. Do you really know what the difference is? Which one is right for you? If you’ve been wondering whether Botox or Juvederm would be a better fit for you, here’s what you need to know to make an informed decision.
Most prospective patients seek plastic surgery for various reasons, often hoping that they will reap both physical and emotional benefits. While those physical changes are easy to see and measure, the emotional or psychological benefits of plastic surgery are often dismissed. After all, how can they be properly measured and studied? When patients say that surgery makes them feel happier or more confident, that’s a nice bonus. But it’s not easily documented. Recently, however, psychologists have become interested in the impact certain plastic surgeries can have on a person. The findings show a correlation between the confidence boost of surgery and an improvement in the patient’s quality of life.
Patients of nonsurgical treatments like facial fillers often take comfort in knowing they are automatically at a lower risk for many unwanted side effects and complications. Yet, every procedure has its risks, even if it’s noninvasive. Facial fillers are no exception, although many people mistakenly assume that they are totally risk-free. While they’re on the lower end of the risk spectrum from an actual surgery, like a facelift, facial fillers should still be taken seriously. Know what your risks are and how to minimize them when you plan for your facial filler treatments.
There are many treatment options available for patients who are interested in the process of lip augmentation, both surgical and nonsurgical. Still, lip augmentation should be carefully considered before any procedures are planned, just like any other form of aesthetic surgery. If you’ve been thinking about enhancing the look of your lips, there are several things to consider. Read on for more information as you decide whether or not to pursue lip augmentation.
Many people assume that rhinoplasty is solely a cosmetic surgery, one that is never performed for strictly medical reasons. Nothing could be further from the truth, especially considering how many rhinoplasty patients seek the surgery in order to improve their breathing and nasal function. Another medical need often requires patients to have rhinoplasty performed: damage to the nose. When a nasal trauma occurs, both functional and cosmetic damage can be sustained, making breathing difficult or leaving behind potential complications for the future. A broken nose is a serious issue that can be corrected with prompt medical attention and, subsequently, the skilled hand of an aesthetic facial plastic surgeon.
