The male desire for facial plastic surgery is growing every year. Men of all ages are now pursuing procedures to help them look young and attractive. In fact, one out of every 10 plastic surgery patients is a man. Dr. Guyuron offers a range of procedures designed to minimize premature signs of aging and enhance the facial features. He understands the unique factors that must be taken into consideration when working with male patients, including increased thickness of the skin and beard growth.
Rhinoplasty is a good option for many men who dislike the appearance of their nose, or those that have a deviated septum or structural abnormality that affects breathing function.
Nose reshaping surgery can correct the following:
- Oversized nose
- Crooked nose
- Asymmetrical nose
- Hump or bump on the bridge of the nose
- Bulbous tip
- Upturned tip
- Drooping tip
- Flared nostrils
- Uneven nostrils
- Wide nostrils
Eyelid surgery is one of the more common procedures among both men and women. Men may choose to have puffy or droopy upper/ lower eyelids treated. The result is eyes that look more awake, rested and attractive.
Upper eyelid surgery improves the appearance of hooded lids or lids that sag into the line of sight. Lower eyelid surgery improves puffy lower lids and under-eye bags. During surgery, Dr. Guyuron will remove excess fat, tissue and skin from the lids and tighten the muscles and remaining skin and inject some fat in the eyelids if he deems beneficial.
Facelift provides the most comprehensive facial rejuvenation results, improving the appearance of jowls, loose skin, wrinkles/folds, creases and displaced fat. During surgery, Dr. Guyuron will reposition the facial tissue and redistribute fat in the face, jowls and neck. He will remove excess skin and re-drape the remaining skin more tightly over the improved facial contours. There are some nuances to the male patient facelift understanding of which is essential to the success and safety of the operation. Dr Guyuron is keenly aware of these differences and teaches this topic internationally.
Some men may be interested in mini facelift, which is a variation of traditional facelift designed for men that are starting to see early signs of aging, including skin laxity, wrinkles and hollowed facial areas.
Men who want to achieve a more youthful looking face without surgery can opt for non-surgical alternatives. Injectable products such as Botox or dermal fillers will temporarily reduce facial lines and wrinkles and restore volume to skin that has lost its youthful plumpness. Skin resurfacing treatment will even out the tone and texture of the skin and minimize fine lines.
