Did you know more men are now turning to facial plastic surgeries and other cosmetic procedures to improve their appearance? In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports the number of males choosing to make use of cosmetic procedures grew by 325 percent for the period between 1997 and 2015, and this trend continues today. Certain procedures remain very popular with men, including liposuction to remove extra fat from various parts of the body and traditional facelifts. Some even turn to a cosmetic surgeon to have a tattoo they now regret removed. So, besides non-surgical Botox injections and facial fillers, what are some of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures requested by men today? Read on!
This should be no surprise. Nose reconstruction, or rhinoplasty, remains the top facial plastic surgery procedure performed around the world. It is especially popular here in the United States due to many recent popular trends, such as using dermal fillers to reshape the nose. This is called the “Non-surgical Nose Job”, as there is no downtime, and Guys can be treated during their lunch hour. However, nose reconstruction, for various reasons, remains the top surgical procedure that men love.
Neck & Facelift
Men and women often use creams and other skin products on the face to remove the signs of aging, but don’t stop to consider that their neck is also showing similar signs. It isn’t until the damage has been done, and after looking in the mirror, that some guys start to notice that their neck has also aged. For those who want to reverse the look of sagging or loose skin around the lower part of the face and neck, a facelift with a neck lift can be of help. This procedure eliminates any excess skin that is present on the neck, and may be combined with liposuction to remove extra fat in the area. Furthermore, Kybella® may be needed to eliminate excess fat that has appeared under the chin. Seeing Houston facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bradford Patt, for a consultation is the first step that men can take to turning back time.
Men tend to lose hair during the aging process. Some opt to embrace this loss of hair and go bald. Others, however, decide to explore methods of reversing this process, and hair transplantation is one solution. Neograft® is a hair transplantation system procedure that leaves no linear scarring, making it the perfect choice for individuals struggling with male pattern baldness or hair that is thinning. This procedure, introduced approximately five years ago, is minimally invasive and no scalpel is used. Neograft FUE minimizes the recovery time needed, while providing the results men are looking for when it comes to restoring their own natural healthy hair.
Gravity takes its toll on every individual, and the effects are often seen on the forehead. With time, the skin on the forehead tends to sag along with skin around the upper eyelids and the eyebrows sagging as well. Most patients choose the forehead or brow lift because the incisions are smaller, scarring is minimal, and the recovery time is shorter. Facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Patt, must determine if this procedure will produce the desired results through an initial consultation and evaluation. Local anesthesia is typically enough for this procedure, and patients rarely need to stay overnight. Swelling is to be expected with a brow lift, but this tends to go away in about ten days.
Men of Houston don’t have to hesitant to request a cosmetic procedure with Dr. Patt, especially if they wish and need to always look their best professionally and socially. Facial plastic surgery is no longer just for women, men are now turning cosmetic surgeons for everything from Botox to an ear tuck. Dr. Patt works closely with patients to help determine which procedures will be of most benefit, and how to yield the best desired results.
