Over the past few years at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center we have seen an increased demand from men requesting plastic surgery or other aesthetic treatments, and this is no surprise given that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has reported a 273 percent increase in the number of procedures performed on men since they started tracking statistics in 1997.
As men get older, fat deposits can tend to build up in your abdomen, love handles, and chest. Even those men who are at a healthy weight can have unwanted fat buildup in these areas. Liposuction is a common procedure to remove that fat and better contour the male body. This procedure breaks up and removes fat from certain areas of the body using a cannula inserted under the skin and fat is removed using a high-pressure vacuum. If when you look in the mirror and the phrase “dad bod” comes to mind, then liposuction may very well be something to consider. An important fact to remember is that liposuction, with its many variations, is a contouring tool, not a weight loss technique and anyone who is considering body contouring should first consider diet and exercise, and only then after getting some toning in the gym and achieving a normalized weight, if you are still unhappy with the shape of your body, liposuction may be a reasonable approach to improving your appearance.
Some men have excess fat and skin of the breast, which can also affect the size and shape of the nipple-areolar complex, and this can project a very feminizing effect of the male chest. Sometimes when hormones are out of balance or a man is overweight, men will struggle with over-developed or enlarged breasts. This is known as gynecomastia, and it can be emotionally difficult for men, diminishing your quality of life as you avoid those activities that draw attention to your chest. Gynecomastia correction surgery at Carp Cosmetic Surgery involves cutting out excess glandular tissue and ultrasonic liposuction, with the overall goal being to improve upon the contour of your chest for a more masculine look.
Men are not immune to facial wrinkles either, and those men who are struggling with wrinkles on their face can turn to Botox® for help. In today’s society and global economy, everyone needs to look their youthful best, and that includes men, who are just likely to be judged on their looks as women are. Botox® involves injecting the bacterium clostridium botulinum deep into those muscles that contribute to deep wrinkles between your eyebrows and other areas of the face. Botox® blocks the signals from the nerves to these muscles, which means that they cannot contract, allowing the wrinkles to soften and relax, making you look like a much younger man, as it effectively works on your wrinkles of the forehead, crow’s feet area and frown lines.
And just as women often show their initial signs of aging around their eyes, so too do men. Loose hanging furrowed skin, lateral brows that hang over the upper eyelids, and bulging fat pads below the eyelids with accentuated tear troughs can all contribute to a look of fatigue and a loss of vitality, which all too often results in friends and colleges asking if you are tired, or if you are getting enough sleep. At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, surgery to restore the upper eyelids to a crisp appearance with correction of any eyelid droop can be life changing, as your lower lids can be rejuvenated by removing any excess fat deposits while repositioning this tissue over your cheek to eliminate the tear trough, and when combined with skin and muscle tightening, this procedure provides a fresh and vibrant appearance, which is vitally important not only in social situations but also in how you are viewed in the workplace.
Men owe it to themselves and their families to look their very best. If you are a man who wants to find out how good you can look, then contact Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center today to set up your complimentary consultation!
