Options for Men
For example, when a plastic surgeon performs a procedure for a male patient, he or she may have to consider the facial hair, the thickness of the man’s skin, and his body type. All these factors can play a part when preparing for a procedure or surgery.
Men most often request cosmetic surgery procedures, such as the following: eyelid surgery, neck lift, nose job (rhinoplasty), chin augmentation (for recession or to get rid of jowls), liposuction, or gynecomastia.
As the population continues to age, men are seeking plastic surgery to improve their quality of life and keep them active and looking their best. Therefore, both men and women have found that cosmetic surgery can heighten their ability to get the most out of life.
One of the popular noninvasive techniques that men frequently ask about are injectable dermal fillers. This type of procedure gives a man the benefit of receiving a quick in-office procedure with no downtime and instant results.
Some men, who have noticed deep lines or facial creases around the eye and mouth, often are the usual candidates. In some instances, the fillers restore definition and facial volume to a man’s face, which has become hollow because of the aging process. A dermal filler can take years off a man’s appearance and can be done in about 30 minutes during a lunch break.
What men like about fillers is that they do not restrict their activities. However, it still is important to remember that vigorous exercise is discouraged during the first 48 hours after treatment. After the injection, the patient needs to give the injection time to settle so the treatment areas will heal with a minimum chance for bruising and swelling.
