What Works Well for Men? A Look at the Guy Side of Plastic Surgery

Men are no longer stigmatized for undergoing plastic surgery or other procedures. In fact, an increasing number of men are undergoing cosmetic surgery to avoid having their appearance deteriorate with age and stress.

Numerous men choose plastic surgery and cosmetic operations to acquire a competitive edge by enhancing their vitality, enthusiasm, and charm, which are all crucial for standing out among peers. This article will enlighten the reader on plastic surgery requests from male patients.

The Unique Cosmetic Concerns of Men

Men have their own unique cosmetic concerns and needs that are different from those of women. Some are more concerned about their hair and skin, while others might have an explicit problem like gynecomastia. Men may also have greater concerns like facial rejuvenation, body contouring, and male-pattern baldness.

In addition, men have different hair textures and skin types than women do. This can make it more difficult for men to find products and services that work well for their particular needs. Whatever your concern, you should take the time to find an experienced cosmetic surgeon to treat it.

Recommended Plastic Surgery and Non-surgical Treatments for Men

Plastic surgery is a popular option for men concerned about the appearance and presentation of their face, chest, or other areas. There are a number of plastic surgery and non-surgical treatments that can be used to boost a man’s appearance. These include the following.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breast enlargement. This condition is exceedingly prevalent and potentially embarrassing from a social standpoint. Gynecomastia surgery is a technique that eliminates the extra tissue in a man’s breasts that has formed as a result of a hormonal imbalance. The condition does not affect your fertility, but it may alter the shape of your chest and cause pain and agitation as time progresses. The surgery provides men with a more masculine chest shape.

Male Facial Rejuvenation

Male facial rejuvenation necessitates an extraordinary amount of planning and ability; not only is the male anatomy different, but men also have their own unique aesthetics that must be taken into account. This treatment is performed on the face and neck to improve fine lines and wrinkles, redefine cheekbones, and add volume and fullness to the upper lip, thereby redefining its shape. For male facial rejuvenation, Dr. Sayed offers a combination of Botox®, dermal fillers, and/or Fraxel® laser resurfacing. He takes the time to examine each patient and provide them with the best treatment plan for their situation.

Male Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most frequently performed aesthetic plastic surgery procedures in the world, particularly among men. This surgery utilizes ultrasound waves and suction to delete fat from specific areas of the body, either to enhance the definition of an already sculpted figure or to address problem areas. Common treatment areas for men include the abdomen, flanks, chest, below the chin, breast, jowls, and more.

Hi-Def Liposculpture for Men

Hi-Def Liposculpture is ideal for men who want better definition of the abdominal muscle surface anatomy to enhance the “six-pack.” Hi-Def lipo includes maneuvers to “over-suction” over the grooves you wish to enhance, pulling out as much fat as possible from the space between the muscle contour and the skin. When the skin retracts, the surface anatomy of the muscle is more apparent at the skin surface, giving a tighter, leaner, and fitter appearance.

NeoGraft

NeoGraft is available to both men and women who are suffering from hair loss. It uses the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method, which gives more natural results and less scarring than traditional scalp stripping procedures. NeoGraft hair restoration is minimally invasive, making it an excellent option for most healthy people, as long as they have a sufficient amount of donor hair at the back of the head.
