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.
Both men and women will see changes in their appearance as they age. Skin and muscles begin to loose elasticity; fine-lines and wrinkles slowly set in, and excess fat accumulates on the neck, abdomen, and extremities. While correcting these imperfections is similar in both genders, men require a unique approach and meticulous eye for detail in order to retain a natural, masculine looking appearance.
At Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, men have multiple options for restoring a youthful appearance and postponing the aging process. From a facelift to liposuction, Dr. Paul Vitenas offers a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures geared for the male patient. With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Vitenas has developed cutting-edge treatments to achieve natural looking, gender appropriate results.
No matter the problem area, Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery has a solution:
An eyelid lift, also known as a 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. A 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 requited 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.
Noninvasive Procedures for Men:
Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery works with Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique to provide a variety of nonsurgical treatments; all designed to rejuvenate the skin and brighten the appearance. Noninvasive techniques can take years off of the face through a quick office procedure, usually with little to no downtime. Our renowned aestheticians know that a man’s face is very different from a woman’s, including skin thickness, fat deposits, facial hair, and pore size, so a personalized treatment plan is created for every patient.
Smooth wrinkles and lines
Botox Cosmetic temporarily relaxes the muscles that are responsible for Frown Lines, Crow’s Feet, and deep forehead furrows.
Reduce excessive sweating
Botox Cosmetic puts an end to unwanted sweating, also known as Hyperhidrosis. Small injections, placed directly into the target area (under arms, forehead, inguinal crease, groin), provide relief for four to six months.
Brighten skin through facial rejuvenation
Microdermabrasion, Laser Genesis, and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy can restore the lost luster in male skin by encouraging the body’s natural collagen production.
Noninvasive fat reduction with CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an FDA cleared, nonsurgical method for reducing stubborn, isolated areas of fatty tissue. Using a method known as Cryolipolysis, the fat cells are frozen, and then naturally metabolized by the body. Patients will see up to a 20% reduction in unwanted fat after only one treatment.
Get rid of unwanted hair
Laser hair removal will leave a man’s skin smooth for months, without shaving. The technique can keep almost any area stubble-free including the face, back, arms, legs, and groin.
