Facial Plastic Surgery For Men
Looking good and staying young isn’t just for women. Men have just as much pressure to look good and make lasting impressions in both the business world and personal life. At Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we know that facial plastic surgery for men is different from women. Men often have different goals. Men’s goals include the need to appear well-defined, vibrant, charismatic, and handsome rather than beautiful.
Why is Facial Plastic Surgery for Men Different?
The facial anatomy of men is quite different than that of women and men usually have thicker muscles. Women are able to conceal facial scars much easier than men through hair and makeup, so any surgical scars on male faces need to be meticulously put back together. Men may need to be off work longer following facial procedures to prevent others from suspecting that they’ve had cosmetic surgery. Dr. Lee understand these concerns and goals and her experience in customizing facial plastic surgery for men will address your areas of concern to achieve the goals you desire.
Rejuvenating Faces in Men
Botox/Dyport, Fillers, Liquid Facelift for Men
A common complaint from men is that their colleagues, spouses/partners, or friends comment that they look angry even though they are not. Botox or Dysport can easily ease those frown lines between your eyes that give you an angry look. A liquid facelift which incorporates the use of Botox/Dysport and fillers can help a man look ten to fifteen years younger and appear more rested and refreshed.
Bleplaroplasty for Men
The eyes are one of the first things people notice about each other. If you are experiencing droopy lids or bags under your eyes, a blepharoplasty may be just the thing for you. Dr. Lee specializes in minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove excess skin to rejuvenate the eyes. You can be assured you will never have a “surprised” or unnatural look. Dr. Lee takes her time to ensure you receive exactly what you are looking for.
Male aesthetics require different criteria than those for the female nose. Dr. Lee’s approach is to emphasize the positive features leaving the nose with a masculine look that fits your face. Each nasal sculpture is customized for each patient. One of the main reasons that men have surgery on their nose is in relation to their health. Many men have breathing issues, or snoring issues, because of their nose. A septoplasty can help to take care of these functional issues. In addition, there may be areas of the appearance of your nose that you are unhappy about. You might want minor changes to enhance your look by getting rid of a nasal hump, make it a little bit smaller or bigger, getting rid of the droopiness of your nose when you smile or talk, refining your nasal tip, or changing the shape of your nose altogether. All of these issues are normal for men to have and a male rhinoplasty can help increase confidence in a man’s overall appearance and self confidence. Dr. Lee understands the unique differences required for rhinoplasty geared towards men and can help you achieve natural, realistic results to enhance your appearance.
Necklift for Men
The neck is one of the most popular procedures for men interested in removing the “turkey waddle” appearance of excess skin under the chin. A necklift can remove excess fat in the chin area. In the case of the necklift, the side burns are important factors in deciding the appropriate place for incisions. Men often have a heavier set neck region because of the thicker neck muscles so Dr. Lee’s skillful techniques to address both the skin and underlying muscles with the latest surgical techniques is crucial to achieving optimal results to maximize your rejuvenation.
Hair Transplantation for Men
Hair transplants are another popular procedure for men. Hair transplants are an effective, permanent solution for replacing hair. Hair transplant techniques today have evolved to highly precise procedures that use precise implants to produce natural looking hair in areas of hair loss. The vast majority of surgical treatment for balding is micrografting of hair. Although you may be able to identify men who have had hair transplants performed in the past when small groups of hair plugs were transferred, modern techniques are much more difficult to notice. Individual follicular hair units are transplanted to create a less obvious and natural look. Dr. Lee uses the most advanced techniques available giving you back your youthful, full head of hair. Dr. Lee has presented advanced techniques for hair transplantation to other facial plastic surgery at the national meeting for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. See our publications page.
Facial Implants for Men
Facial implants are also popular with men to enhance definition of their facial features. Chin implants, for example, can help men achieve a stronger chin and are occasionally performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty to delineate a better facial profile. Cheek implants are also popular to address volume loss in the midface to rejuvenate and restore the youthful appearance.
Skincare for Men
Years of enduring the elements can give men’s skin a wrinkled, leathery appearance. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and monthly signature facials combined with advanced, medical grade skin care products can give your skin back its healthy look. Chemicals peels resurface the skin and allow your skin to look its best. Through a series of treatments, the process stimulates production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy skin. A chemical peel can also help ease razor burn in men and reduce inflammation.
Men and Facial Plastic Surgery
When planning a male cosmetic procedure, Dr. Lee will consider the length of the side burns, hair line, and the possibility of a receding hair line during surgical planning. In the case of hair transplantation, special precautions may be taken since men do not style their hair as much as women. Men interested in facelift surgery must select a doctor, like Dr. Lee, who is not only experienced with male facelifts, but a specialist in facial plastic surgery. The surface layer of the skin must be treated differently in men. Dr. Lee understands these differences and will help you fully understand what procedures will work best for you and give you the result you expect and deserve.
Why men should consider cosmetic procedures
