Popular Cosmetic Procedures for Men

Cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly popular among men in New York City. Treatment by a facial oculoplastic and cosmetic surgeon can be used to address both aesthetic and functional concerns involving the various features of the face.

Cosmetic Procedures Most Requested by Men

Eyelid Rejuvenation

As a person ages, it is normal for the muscles that support the eyelid to weaken and stretch and for fat to collect around the eyelids. The result is eyelids that droop and bags under the eyes that give the person the appearance of being tired, haggard, and older than their age. Eyelid rejuvenation also known as blepharoplasty removes the excess skin and fat deposits to create a younger, more refreshed appearance.

Neck Lift

The skin of the neck is thin and elastic, which makes it prone to sagging and wrinkling with age. This results in a double chin, jowls, and the dreaded “turkey neck.” A neck lift creates a firmer, more defined neck and chin by eliminating excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying muscles.

Rhinoplasty

Commonly referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty reshapes the bone and cartilage of the nose to make it more proportional to the size and shape of the face. Depending on the desired appearance, rhinoplasty can be combined with a chin augmentation to achieve a balanced facial aesthetic.

Chin Augmentation

A strong, chiseled jawline is considered ideal by most men. For men who do not come by this naturally, chin augmentation using implants can provide the desired projection and definition and bring the features of the face into proportion. The implant is made from materials that are compatible with natural human tissue and is designed to feel like a natural chin. The procedure involves inserting the implant through an incision made inside the mouth or underneath the chin.
Combining chin augmentation with neck liposuction creates even more dramatic results.
