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 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.

Cosmetic Surgery After Breast Cancer

When most people think about Cosmetic Surgery after Breast Cancer, they immediately envision breast reconstruction surgeries, which are used to restore a woman’s feminine curves by recontouring the chest and providing new breast tissue, or implants, to replace the original breast tissue that was removed; however, the physical and psychological effects of surviving cancer go well beyond the mastectomy techniques that are used to remove the cancer from the body. Most women also undergo debilitating rounds of chemotherapy, which wreak havoc on their healthy cells, as well as the cancerous ones.

Once all of the treatments have ended, and a woman is given the coveted “Cancer Free!” pronunciation, there are years of check-ups and tests before she can feel safe that her body is truly “cancer free”. Cosmetic Surgery procedures can be used to help restore a woman’s youthful and healthy appearance, and to help her regain the sense of confidence and well-being that may have been lost during her journey.

Here are some of the cosmetic procedures that can help a woman embrace her new leash on life after breast cancer.

  1. A Less-Invasive Facelift. After all of the doctor’s visits and medical procedures involved with cancer treatment, many women are interested in less-invasive procedures that will still provide a dramatic outcome. The SLUPlift™ is a revolutionary Facelift procedure, invented by our own Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj. It uses only a small incision, at the front and the back of each earlobe. Then, the muscles of the face are lifted and threaded in loop fashion to the jowl area. The results are a younger, and smoother face without a full surgical procedure:
    • The procedure takes only 1-2 hours and is performed using a Local Anesthetic.
    • The recovery period is only 5 days.
    • It has much longer lasting results than traditional Mini-Facelift procedures.
  2. Non-surgical Facelift. We can also use a combination of Botox® Cosmetic injections and other fillers to erase wrinkle lines, create fullness where skin has become less elastic or saggy, and to remove dramatic tear troughs and marionette lines. Botox® also has other beneficial side effects, including relief from migraine headaches. Dr. S. can even use non-surgical procedures for lip and nose augmentation. Within a couple of hours, your face can appear decades younger, ridding you of the worry lines and unappealing skin sag that may remain after long-term cancer treatments. Some of the other dermal fillers we use to perform a Non-Surgical Facelift include:
    • RADIESSE®™
  3. Rhinoplasty. Sometimes, patients who have undergone routine rounds of chemotherapy and surgical procedures for cancer lose their fear of surgery and take the proverbial bull by the horns. They figure if they had to undergo all that surgery for something they didn’t choose, they might as well enjoy Cosmetic Surgery to make improvements that they arein control of. One example of this is Rhinoplasty. A nose can become the bane of a person’s existence. After years of wishing your nose was different, why not take control of your face’s destiny and make it different? Whether you are interested in Ethnic Rhinoplasty procedures, or want to make small changes to your profile, the results will be a nose that enhances your facial proportions and allows you to smile back at your reflection.
  4. Mix-and-Match procedures. Other times, patients come to us because they don’t know exactly what they want, but they know they want something. During a consultation with Dr. Oleh Slupchynskyj, you can discuss the things you aren’t happy with, or you wish were different, and Dr. S. can tell you about your options. In many cases, our patients receive a combination of procedures to fix the features they aren’t happy with. This can include things like:
    • Brow lift
    • Lip Augmentation
    • Facial Contouring
    • Neck Liposuction
    • Face and/or Neck Lifts
    • Eyelid Corrections
    • Non-invasive Facelift procedures

These are just a handful of the procedures we use to restore youth and vitality to our patients.

5. Breast reconstruction. Women who have undergone a Single or Double mastectomy are often interested in Breast Reconstruction surgery. Breast Reconstruction Surgery has come a long way and women can enjoy the benefits of breast that look and feel natural. While we don’t perform this type of Cosmetic Surgery in our office, Dr. Slupchyskyj can provide you with referrals to some of the best Breast Reconstructive Surgeons in the industry.
