Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men

Say the words “Cosmetic Surgery” and people’s minds usually go directly to women: BOTOX®™, Facelifts, and Breast Augmentation. But, we know from our successful New York Plastic Surgery Practice, men are most certainly embracing the power of surgical advancements to enhance their looks and physique. Just take a look at this list, The 10 Most Popular Cosmetic Surgeries For Men,” published on therichest.com. Excluding a few body-based procedures, such as Liposuction or Breast Reduction, the bulk of the procedures requested by men revolve around anti-aging procedures for a more youthful and vital appearance, or to correct facial features — like the nose or ears — that have plagued them for years.

So, let’s take a look at some of the most popular Plastic Surgery procedures that appeal to men.

Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common Cosmetic Surgery procedures requested by men of all ages. The nose is a funny thing — even the slightest amount of disproportion can affect the way a person views himself or herself in the mirror. This is especially true if an individual was teased about the size or shape of their nose when they were a child or adolescent. Rhinoplasty procedures are performed to alter the size and/or shape of the nose in a way that is in better proportion with existing facial features. Dr. Slupchynskyj has revolutionized Rhinoplasty procedures, specifically Ethnic Rhinoplasty, with hisSLUPimplant™, which uses a custom carved silastic implant.

Otoplasty. This is one of the cosmetic procedures that is actually requested more frequently by men than by women. There are several reasons for this. The first of which is that men usually wear their hair shorter than women, which makes their ears more prominent. Otoplasty, also called Ear Pinning (although no pinning is involved), can be used to change the shape of the ear, or it can be used to prevent the ears from sticking out perpendicularly to the head. Again, facial proportion is the key. The doctor will use precise facial measurements to determine the size and shape that works best with your natural features.

Brow Lifts. One of the first signs of aging in a man are the brow lines, or brow sag, that begins to appear as skin elasticity decreases with age. This can be more dramatic in men due to their naturally prominent brow lines and shaggier eyebrows. Over time, the brow line can droop significantly, causing a hooded look as the eyebrows begin to sag over the upper eyelids. A Brow Lift can be used to gently raise the eyebrow line, which helps to alleviate the hooded look and will ease wrinkle lines. This procedure is often paired with an Eyelid Lift, to help remove excess eyelid skin that can begin to sag both above and below the eyes. BOTOX®™ injections can be used to further diminish frown lines or creases along the brow line or between the eyes.

Face and Neck Lifts. Another common complaint for older men is the “jowly” look that can occur as the cheeks begin to sag. Again, the culprit is decreased collagen production. This will also affect the skin on the neck. A Facelift and/or Neck Lift can be used to remove excess skin and gently stretch the skin to its normal position. The goal is to create a natural, healthy, younger skin tone – it should not pull the skin so taught that it appears stretched or shiny.

BOTOX®™ injections. BOTOX®™ injections have revolutionized the world of Cosmetic Surgery because they allow Plastic Surgeons to create significant improvements in regards to anti-aging treatments without using invasive surgical procedures.BOTOX®™ can be used in a variety of areas, most commonly the brow, around the nose, and the lips. It eliminates wrinkles and worry lines, smooths sagging skin, and re-plumps skin that may be sagging or deflating with age. BOTOX®™ injections can also be used to enhance lips, which can alter their shape with age, or can change as the result of long-time smoking. Many of our patients opt to use BOTOX®™ when they first notice the signs of aging on their face, and save more invasive Cosmetic Surgery techniques for when the signs of aging become more dramatic.

The Real Deal – Cosmetic Surgery in Your 30s

The best method for approaching Cosmetic Surgery is a practical one: identify a problem area, or multiple problem areas, and then create a plan to fix them. It’s as simple as that. For many of our clients, the 30s bring about the first signs of aging. Perhaps the crow’s feet around the eyes have become a more permanent feature, as are the frown lines between the eyes and on the forehead. Lips can begin to thin and since skin elasticity is linked to aging, you may even notice a slight sagging in the brow line, cheeks or jowls. If this sounds familiar, now is the time to schedule a consultation with Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj.

During your consultation, he can advise you regarding the Real Deal about Cosmetic Surgery procedures in your 30s. In fact, many of our younger patients are able to make an appointment for less invasive procedures, such as Botox®™ injections or Lip Augmentation, and can put off the more invasive surgeries for a few more years.

Here is a list of common Cosmetic Surgery procedures recommended in your 30s:

Rhinoplasty. If you still spend time staring at your nose in the mirror, and wishing it were different, now is the time to make the change. By the time you have hit your 30s, facial growth has been 100% complete for almost a decade. Why go another decade wishing your nose were a little fill in the blank, when you can make an appointment to get the nose you want right now? Dr. Oleh is a world-renowned Rhinoplasty Surgeon, who has revolutionized the process of Rhinoplasty using his SLUPimplant™, especially effective for Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty procedures. During your consultation, you can see before and after pictures. Plus, you can envision exactly what you will look like using our computer imaging technology, allowing you to select the ideal nose for your facial proportions.

Botox®™ Injections. For most people in their 30s, decreased skin elasticity is just beginning to show. While a full facelift isn’t usually necessary, Botox Cosmetic®™ injections can go a long way towards restoring a renewed, youthful, and wrinkle-free face. Afraid that a Botox treatment will leave your face expressionless? Don’t be. Botox Cosmetic®™ is a brand name for a bacteria found in nature, called Botulinum Toxin Type A. This particular form of botulism partially paralyzes nerve endings, causing the creases in your forehead, brow, and face to relax. It allows your face to have a more smooth and youthful appearance, while maintaining natural muscular movement and expression. It usually requires about 24 to 72 hours for Botox Cosmetic®™ injections to take effect. Using this less invasive procedure can prevent your from having to undergo Cosmetic Surgery.

Lip Augmentation. You knew your skin would thin and our body would change as you grew older, but did you know that formerly plump lips can begin to thin out, becoming more linear than curved? This is especially true for those who have smoked in the past, or continue to smoke. Lip Augmentation can be used to inject the lips with dermal fillers that add volume and shape to thin lips. It can also help to fill in the smoking lines that form around the lips of longtime smokers.

Non-Surgical Facelift. If you are interested in more than one of our non-invasive facial enhancements, you may want to consider a Non-Surgical Facelift. This package was especially created by Dr. Slupchynskyj for women in their 30s or 40s who need a serious facial rejuvenation but aren’t quite ready for full Cosmetic Surgery procedures. It uses a combination of Botox®™,  Juvéderm™, Radiesse®™, and Restylane®™. The doctor will use these products to target the following areas:

•   Nasolabial Folds

•   Lip Augmentation

•   Marionette Lines

•   Tear Trough (Below lower eyelid, or lower eyelid hollow)

•   Nose Augmentation (Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty)

•   Liquid Facelift (Non-Surgical Facelift)

You will be amazed at the effects. Your Non-Surgical Facelift will allow you to put off more invasive Cosmetic Surgery procedures for another decade or two.
