When people think of cosmetic procedures, they may believe that only women are receiving and benefiting from treatments. However, most aging concerns effect men and women equally making men ideal candidates for certain cosmetic procedures. At Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD, and board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, we specialize in procedures that are beneficial for both men and women. Here are the top 4 cosmetic procedures that are highly recommended for men in 2021.
Facelift / Necklift
The neck is the first area to show signs of aging among many adults. A facelift or neck lift is recommended for older men with sagging skin on the jawline and neck. A facelift can correct these issues by removing excess skin and lifting underlying muscular layers to provide a youthful appearance that can take decades of aging off your appearance. In a similar way, a neck lift can contour excess fat that causes a double chin, as well as remove and lift hanging skin contributing to “turkey neck”. For many men, the smoother, more youthful looking shape makes both procedures worthwhile.
As men age, fat accumulates in unwanted areas such as the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), the breasts (gynecomastia), upper arms, lower back, and along the chin/neck area. Liposuction is a popular, safe, and effective procedure that removes excessive fat on nearly any part of the face or body, resulting in highlighting muscle definition and improved body contour. With this effective surgical procedure, excess fat is removed using a small incision near the treatment site and the use of a tool called a cannula.
We take great pride in being the first and only plastic surgery and dermatology practice in Brevard to introduce Renuvion®, the latest technology by J-Plasma®. Renuvion® is a revolutionary, game changing device offering incredible skin tightening and quality improvement by stimulating skin with radiofrequency heat. Renuvion® is used in combination with all of our liposuction procedures.
A chemical peel is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates and stimulates collagen, revealing healthier and smoother skin. This treatment removes the outermost layer of dead skin reducing wrinkles, acne, scars, sun damage, pigmentation, and sun spots. A chemical peel can also benefit men who suffer from growths on the skin, including pre-cancerous lesions. A peel takes only half an hour to perform, and results can last for up to several months. After this procedure, the skin becomes sensitive, so patients should refrain from shaving for about seven to 10 days to ensure the fresh, healthy layer of skin is not damaged as it heals. For some men, beard growth covers some of the redness that usually occurs after a chemical peel, meaning the side effects of treatment may be less noticeable in public.
Dermal Filler Injections
As we age, we lose fat in the face and produce less collagen leading to the appearance of aging skin. Dermal fillers are used to temporarily fill fat or stimulate collagen in hollow or wrinkled areas throughout the face and correct sagging skin, sunken facial contours, creases, and folds. Dermal fillers are a great alternative or addition to more invasive surgical procedures to provide rejuvenating results. These treatments are minimally invasive and provide immediate results that often continue to improve over time, naturally and gradually. Injectables such as Botox and Dysport can be used to remove wrinkles by relaxing specific muscles in the face that would otherwise crease with animation. In addition, hyaluronic acid (a substance naturally found in our bodies) fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can fill in pocket scars or augment thin facial features. These treatments provide natural-looking results that may last up to two years.
