Male plastic surgery is on the rise, increasing by more than 40% in the last five years. One reason for this growth: the stigma that cosmetic procedures are reserved for women is slowly falling away. Today, there are a wide variety of aesthetic procedures tailored solely for a man’s needs.
How Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery Can Help
No matter the problem area, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery has a solution:
An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, targets the sagging skin of the upper and lower eyelid. During the surgical procedure, Dr. Vitenas will remove excess fatty tissue around the eyes, lifting the skin and pulling it taut. The procedure can address the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. Blepharoplasty will make the eyes look brighter, and the appearance more awake and well rested.
The Face and Neck
The facelift, or rhytidectomy, is one of the more traditional cosmetic surgery procedures available. A facelift will provide dramatic benefits, taking years off the appearance by lifting sagging tissue, eliminating excess fat, and tightening the underlying muscles. Dr. Vitenas’ Rhytidectomy will be tailored to the needs of each patient, creating a natural appearance.
The Forehead and Eyebrows
Laughing, smiling, and squinting are repetitive muscle movements that, over the years, can cause wrinkles and fine lines to form. These furrows, coupled with sagging, aging skin, can make the appearance look tired, unhappy, or unhealthy. The Browlift, or forehead lift, will smooth the unwanted creases above the eyebrows, and lift the tissue to restore a pleasant, rejuvenated appearance.
One of the most common male cosmetic procedures is the rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job. The procedure can be used to correct the size, shape, and projection of the nose, as well as straighten the nasal bridge, and even improve breathing issues. Depending on the extent of correction, Dr. Vitenas’ rhinoplasty can be performed with either internal or external incisions.
The Cheeks and Chin
A small chin or sunken cheeks can take away from healthy, attractive facial proportions. Dr. Vitenas can bring balance back to the male face by extending the chin, or when needed, reducing the chin’s projection. Flat cheeks can be enhanced through implants, or noninvasively using dermal fillers.
Unwanted Body Fat
Liposuction is a common procedure for men who wish to remove excess fat around the waist or flanks, under the chin, or along the chest. As most of these areas are resistant to diet and exercise, Liposuction is often the only way to restore smooth, masculine body contours. Luckily, since a man’s skin tends to retain elasticity better than a woman’s, Liposuction can often be the only procedure needed to improve the physical shape.
Abnormally large male breasts are referred to as Gynecomastia. There are many causes for this condition, and in some cases, Gynecomastia can resolve on its own. In many situations, however, surgical correction will be required to achieve a flat, even chest. Dr. Vitenas will use either liposuction or excision, or a combination of both, to smooth the breasts. After a male breast reduction, men are often more self-confident, once again swimming, hitting the gym, and wearing tight-fitting t-shirts.
