Cosmetic Procedures for Men
The number of men seeking cosmetic procedures continues to rise every year. Cosmetic procedures for men differ from their female counterparts in a several ways. Many men are looking for more conservative or subtle results, as they may not want others to know they had anything done. In addition, it is important to consider key differences in the male anatomy (such as thicker skin and stronger muscles) into consideration for both surgical and non-surgical techniques. This is why it is imperative to consult with a highly specialized surgeon who has a great deal of experience with male patients.
Whether seeking cosmetic procedures to look as young as they feel, stay competitive in the workplace or simply improve a concern that has bothered them for years, there are a variety of procedures and treatments that can help men achieve their aesthetic goals. Boca Raton oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Steven Fagien has extensive experience with male blepharoplasty,
Types of Cosmetic Surgery for Men
There are four main cosmetic procedures and treatments that men request most often. These include blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), BOTOX, dermal fillers, Kybella and laser hair removal.
Due to thicker skin and stronger muscles, the eye area can show visible signs of aging earlier in men than in women in some cases. Eyelid surgery can effectively improves wrinkling, sagging and a fatigued appearance with natural-looking results and no visible scarring. Dr. Fagien uses the most minimally invasive techniques possible to limit the appearance of scars for male patients.
Botox for Men
BOTOX has become the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment performed in the US. Designed to smooth the appearance of forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines with no downtime, the main difference between male and female BOTOX treatments is that men often require more units to compensate for stronger muscles. Dr. Fagien has extensive expertise performing BOTOX injections for male patients. He will carefully examine each individual patient’s facial muscles to determine the best treatment plan for a natural and lasting result.
As men age, their skin loses elasticity and they will begin to store fat in different places than they did while they were younger. This can lead to flatter cheeks that appear more sunken, hollow areas under the eyes and temples, deflated lips and deepening creases between the brows and around the mouth and chin areas. The use of dermal fillers for men can improve these areas by adding volume where it has been lost, reshaping facial proportions, enhancing the jawline and bridge of the nose, and producing a more masculine and youthful appearance. Dr. Steven Fagien uses a wide range of FDA approved dermal fillers for male patients, including Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Sculptra Aesthetic, and Radiesse to achieve the desired lasting results.
In 2015, a first-of-its-kind fat-melting injectable drug called Kybella was approved by the US FDA for treating submental fat, or a double chin. Before Kybella, liposuction was the only solution available, but this is surgical procedure that comes along with risks and recovery time. Kybella permanently destroys unwanted fat beneath the chin over a series of injections. The central neck fat pad tends to be bulkier in men, so higher Kybella doses or additional treatments may be necessary. Dr. Fagien was one of the physicians chosen to perform the clinical trials that led to Kybella’s approval in the U.S., and therefore, he has several years of experience using this injectable treatment on men as well as women.
