More and more men are discovering that plastic surgery can improve or maintain their youthful look, allowing them to feel more confident and dynamic in their personal and professional lives.
Studies have shown that men with more appealing features achieve higher rank in the military¹, and in business. A CEO’s appearance is directly correlated with the company’s financial success².
Surgical procedures for men are carried out a little differently than women, however the basic concepts are the same.
Liposuction is among the most popular surgical procedures for men. No matter how much one diets and exercises, the love handles do not go away, especially after 40. VASERlipo® technology has proven very useful for male liposuction, allowing the maximum amount of fat to be removed with less complication. It has also been useful with Gynecomastia procedures (male breast reduction).
For the baby boomers now in their 50’s, the biggest advancement in plastic surgery for the face has been Non-Invasive Injections.
Beginning in their late 40’s if they are physically active, men begin to lose fat in their faces. From the neck down they may look 20, but the face looks tired. Because men have more vascularity in their facial skin, they do not experience as much skin sagging until later in life, but the lack of fat in the face area will make a man look gaunt. Sun exposure is also a major factor, and forehead lines or crow’s feet are more pronounced in men because their skin is thicker.
A combination of using Botox® for the lines and Sculptra® for the face has rejuvenated many men with just a single office visit. A patient once referred to the combination as the “Executive Boost.” Dr. Nitta will soon be introducing her Executive Boost Package, which will incorporate Botox®, Sculptra® and acupuncture energy treatment to renew and revitalize the business man with one easy visit.
Dr. Nitta also performs facelifts, eyelid surgery, brow lift, and nose surgery on men, with special considerations for the unique structure and needs of the masculine face.
