Traditionally, women have been much more interested in cosmetic surgery, but an increasing number of men are requesting plastic surgery procedures today. With time, attitudes regarding plastic surgery have changed and it is not uncommon for men to turn to plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancement. Men have different cosmetic needs, so we ensure that our process is tailored to their physical attributes and aesthetic goals. Accent on You Cosmetic Surgery Center performs aesthetic procedures for male residents of Arlington, Dallas, Fort Worth and the surrounding communities in Texas.
Men are undoubtedly motivated by some different factors than women when deciding to undergo a cosmetic surgery procedure, and they also often desire subtler results. Most surgeons offer popular cosmetic procedures for their male patients using different techniques that help them achieve more natural-looking results.
Some of the top cosmetic enhancement procedures for men include the following:
Even with hours of exercise and strict dieting, some men still cannot achieve defined, chiseled abs. Abdominal etching is a procedure which specifically targets the area surrounding your abdominal muscles by defining the contours with detailed liposuction. Dr. Mohan uses a special type of liposuction procedure called VASER ultrasonic liposuction to remove and sculpt the fatty tissue deposited just under the skin. The abdominal etching procedure defines abdominal lines and emphasizes your muscle tone, helping give you the abs you always desired.
With age, men see areas of fat which tend to accumulate around their flanks, abdomen and chest area (known as gynecomastia), among other areas of the body. There are many factors that contribute to gynecomastia, including hormones, and when medication and diet control do not work to reduce the size of the chest, your surgeon can help you decide if a surgery is the right solution for you. Male breast size not only affects your appearance, but it can lower your self-confidence.
Chest contouring is a surgical procedure that uses excision and liposuction techniques to remove the excessive breast tissue. If the position or size of the nipple has increased or changed, it can be addressed as well during the surgery. Usually, you will require general anesthesia for the surgery. Any strenuous activities and sports must be avoided for a month, while a full recovery takes about 3 to 6 months.
A classic masculine feature is a strong chin. However, with age and weight gain, among other factors, men may begin to have a weak and receding chin. For some men, their genetics may have simply given them a chin and jawline area that lacks definition. Chin augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that helps you achieve a prominent chin, bringing your features into proportion.
The incisions for your chin augmentation are usually made underneath your chin and are well-hidden. An implant is added to add volume and projection. The risks with chin augmentation (also known as mentoplasty) are rare, and the recovery time is short, with most men able to get back to work within 5 days. Most of the swelling goes down within a week.
When you have fat underneath your chin that won’t go away, you can also opt for the non-invasive Kybella injections which are approved by the FDA to destroy fat cells. It does not require anesthesia and there is a minimal downtime involved.
Your face is the first thing anybody notices about you, and just like women, men also face undesirable changes in their appearance due to sun exposure and aging. There are many options to help with facial rejuvenation for those who are experiencing wrinkles, fine lines, volume loss, neck fat or droopy eyelids.
A common concern known as the turkey neck may prevent you from feeling confident in your dress shirts. The necklift for men restores your youthful appearance and you can recover from the surgery within 2 weeks.
Surgical procedures like facelift, necklift, brow and eyelid lift help provide a refreshed appearance; and injectables like Botox, dermal fillers and Kybella help with fat elimination, smooth wrinkles and add volume to hollow areas. Dr. Mohan can use a combination of procedures to give you a rejuvenated appearance that takes years off your face.
When you are unable to get rid of stubborn fat deposits despite regular diet and exercise, liposuction may help with body contouring. When you are close to your ideal body weight, liposuction is ideal for sculpting the flanks and abdomen. It is not a weight loss procedure but simply treats certain areas of the body to look slimmer and more proportional. Most men look to liposuction to treat their abdomen and flanks.
Dr. Mohan makes tiny incisions in the treatment area before inserting a small cannula to dislodge fat cells, which are removed using a surgical vacuum before the incisions are closed and a compression garment is placed on the area. Most patients return to their normal routine within 2 weeks, seeing results within a week for the procedure. Your recovery depends on many factors including the extent of liposuction and where it was performed. There are several techniques available and your surgeon will determine the best technique after evaluating your body and aesthetic goals.
Otoplasty or ear pinning surgery is another common cosmetic surgery for men. The surgical procedure helps with improvement in the shape, proportion or size of the ears.
