Cosmetic surgery… it’s not just for women. In fact, men underwent 8 percent of all cosmetic surgery procedures performed in 2017, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That may not sound like much, but when you consider that there were nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures in 2017, and men represented almost 10 percent of that total, the numbers show a growing trend. Let’s learn about four of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments that men are using to improve their looks and their self-esteem. If you are male and looking for a cosmetic surgeon in Manhattan, or just want to explore your options, Preminger Plastic Surgery is here to help.
- Facelift –Men experience signs of aging in their face the same way that women do. And many men also want to look younger, which can be achieved through cosmetic surgery. A facelift can correct sagging, hollowing, and other signs of aging, while also removing excess fat and loose skin. The final benefits can include a stronger-looking jawline and the elimination of loose hanging skin on the neck and face that may make you appear older. Many men who undergo facelifts opt to have what is known as a short scar facelift, which conceals the incision line and is advantageous for men whose scars may be more prominent because they generally have shorter hairstyles.
- Gynecomastia-This is the clinical term for enlarged male breasts, and it is most prevalent among adolescents going through puberty as their hormone levels change, and men 50 and older who are experiencing a decrease in testosterone levels as they age. Excess body fat, hormonal disorders, and side effects to certain medications, including steroids all can cause this condition. Men with gynecomastia may have extreme difficulty correcting these appearance issues on their own; even rigorous exercise and a strict diet may not be enough. At Preminger Plastic Surgery, we can correct gynecomastia by removing the excess fat and tissue from the chest area, and then contouring the chest to create a firm, youthful, more masculine look.
- Botox-Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments for a reason. It also has become more popular among men, who can use these injectable procedures to alleviate the prominence of crow’s feet, fine lines, and facial wrinkles. Botox is non-invasive, with minimal recovery time, allowing a busy man to resume his regular routine right away following treatment. Dr. B. Aviva Preminger at Preminger Plastic Surgery is considered one of the foremost plastic surgeons for Botox treatments in Manhattan or throughout all of New York City. She can turn back the clock and revitalize your appearance after just a handful of strategically placed injections.
- Liposuction-Many men experience the formation of stubborn deposits of fat as they age. They form around the abdomen, on the chest, or on the waist and hips. Sometimes even diet and exercise isn’t enough, and more and more men are turning to liposuction to get rid of these hard-to-lose fatty areas with maximum convenience. Dr. Preminger has been performing liposuction on men for years. She can give you the slim, defined physique you always wanted but never were able to achieve through traditional methods.
