Top Cosmetic Procedures for Men this Fall
Women are not the only ones scheduling plastic surgery and other cosmetic treatments in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. Men are also finding they can boost their appearance and their confidence to greet dinners, parties and other festivities in style. Check out these top procedures offered by Houston Center for Plastic Surgery for men this fall to find out how we can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Nose reshaping surgery is as popular with male patients as it is with females. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 53,000 men sought rhinoplasty in 2015 alone, which accounted for approximately one-fourth of all plastic surgery procedures performed on men during that year.
This procedure offers a myriad of benefits, from correcting minor imperfections and asymmetries to improving breathing and reducing snoring. Dr. Rappaport at Houston Center for Plastic Surgery understands the differences between what men and women want in terms of aesthetic results and will work with you to ensure your expectations for your procedure are met.
You may think primarily of women when referring to breast enhancement procedures of any kind. However, for men suffering the psychological and social consequences of gynecomastia, breast reduction can provide much needed change to the male physique. Gynecomastia is a relatively common condition among men that can lead to enlargement of the breasts, sometimes to a size comparable to a woman’s breast.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess skin and tissue to create a more masculine chest contour. In 2015, 27,456 men had this procedure performed. Results are usually permanent and often life-changing for patients.
Eyelid surgery is a procedure that can have a profound impact on the overall appearance of the face. The eyes are often one of the first areas to show the signs of age, making both men and women look older and more tired than they really feel. Eyelid surgery reverses those signs, creating a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Like nose surgery, eyelid surgery for men may be slightly different than procedures for women. Men tend to see more drooping and are often less concerned with the formation of fine lines around the eyes. No matter what your specific concerns might be, Dr. Rappaport will design your surgery to meet your needs, ensuring your results meet your aesthetic goals as closely as possible.
Both men and women find that isolated areas of fat can develop on areas of the body over time. These fat deposits often don’t respond to diet and exercise efforts and may remain even if a healthy weight is attained. For these individuals, liposuction may be the only effective way to remove the fat and smooth the body contour.
Liposuction in men is often performed differently than in women. Men tend to have more dense areas of fat, which may require a different liposuction technique to remove it effectively. In addition, men usually have different target areas to treat, such as the abdomen and love handles.
More than Surgery
Surgical procedures are not the only options sending men to plastic surgeons this time of year. Non-surgical treatments can also help men turn back the clock and address a host of cosmetic concerns. One of the most popular non-surgical choices for men is injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. In fact, more than a half-million of these treatments were performed on men in 2015.
If you are looking for a way to boost your appearance this season, Dr. Rappaport can help. His practice sees numerous male patients throughout the week and strive to ensure they feel comfortable throughout their procedure process.
