Why More Men Are Turning to Cosmetic Surgery

plastic surgery for men

While plastic surgery has been largely marketed to females over the years, today, more than ever, men are choosing to rejuvenate their appearance as well.  But can men get plastic surgery just like women? Of course! In fact, since 2000, there has been a 29 percent increase in male cosmetic procedures in the United States. Some of the plastic surgery for men that tends to be most popular includes fillers, tummy tucks, liposuction, and rhinoplasty.  Why the Shift in Male Cosmetic Surgery Interest? There are several reasons for this major shift in male interest in cosmetic surgery.  First and foremost,… Read More

Putting Your Best Face Forward With a Facelift

facelift

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I help my patients address the signs of facial aging on a daily basis. As plastic surgeons, we have many tools in our toolbox, so-to-speak, to help slow down, and in some cases, turn back the aging process… at least for a while.  While botox and fillers may be right for the younger patient trying to hide subtle changes of aging, laser resurfacing and chemical peels may do better for the next level of patients. And for those with finer lines and wrinkles, a facelift is a worthy option to explore. Specific situations where a… Read More

Five Ways to Accentuate the Appearance of Your Brow Lift

brow lift

As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and begins to droop. One of the areas where this is most prominent is on the brow line. It’s common to be frustrated by a sagging brow and eyelids. Fortunately, a brow lift or browpexy can gently lift the brow back up. Eyelid surgery can make the lids look less heavy and more youthful. With or without eyelid or brow surgery there are some things that patients can do to help accentuate their brows: Have Your Brows Professionally Shaped While natural brows are certainly “in” right now, some men and women may… Read More

How to Get Rid of Forehead Wrinkles

forehead wrinkles

Of all the types of wrinkles that can appear on the skin, forehead wrinkles are often the most noticeable and the most annoying for my patients. Below, I’ll discuss why forehead wrinkles tend to develop so prominently and what you can do to get rid of them. Why Do Forehead Wrinkles Form? Certainly, time is the biggest culprit when it comes to forehead wrinkles. Aging is the number one cause. However, several other factors may cause forehead lines as well. Namely, over-exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun or tanning beds can exacerbate the signs of aging and… Read More

Four Tummy Tuck Recovery Tips

tummy tuck recovery tips

Thinking about getting a tummy tuck? This is a popular procedure that can improve the appearance of your abdomen particularly after weight loss or childbearing. It is commonly part of a “Mommy Makeover” which restores both breasts and abdomen after childbearing, or as an independent surgery.  It is commonly used to tighten skin after significant weight loss. Below, we’ll explain what a tummy tuck is and a few tips you should follow after your procedure in order to recover properly. What Is a Tummy Tuck? A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can create a flatter, smoother abdomen through the removal of excess… Read More

Four Injectables That Slow Down the Aging Process

injectables

Anti-aging injections or “injectables” offer a minimally invasive solution to wrinkled and creased skin, shallow facial contours, thin lips, recessed scars, sagging eyelids, and more. Some injectables that are referred to as dermal fillers essentially restore plumpness, volume, and youth to the face. Who Needs Anti-Wrinkle Injectables? I generally recommend injectables to adults who have lost some of their skin’s elasticity. As we age, we naturally lose collagen in the skin. In turn, that bouncy, plump appearance of youth can be lost. Many factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and overall lifestyle can also influence a patient’s need for injectables…. Read More

Dealing with Gynecomastia

gynecomastia

For many men, gynecomastia (“man boobs”) is an embarrassing and frustrating issue. Fortunately, at my practice, male breast reduction is an effective solution for most men that can help. Below, I’ll outline exactly what gynecomastia is and how male breast augmentation can help this common problem. What Is Gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is the enlargement of male breast tissue, and it can happen at any time in life. At some stages of life (for example, during infancy and puberty), gynecomastia may be completely normal and is generally the result of changing hormones. However, other causes of enlarged breast tissue during young adult… Read More

How to Take Care of Your Lips in the Summer Sun

lip care tips

Much of lip care is about having the right products available at the right times. During the summer months, while many people concern themselves only with their skin by using sunscreen (which is great!), I always remind my patients not to forget about their lips. While certainly a continuation of the skin and an admittedly small part of the face, lip care during the summer is crucial to maintaining a flawless smile. Below, we’ll go over some key lip care tips to follow this summer. But first, let’s talk lip augmentation. Considering Lip Augmentation? Here’s What You Need to Know… Read More

Transform and Enhance Your Body This Summer

enhance your body

There’s certainly no “ideal” season for transforming and enhancing your body by visiting a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. Still, summer can be an excellent time of year to invest in your appearance. Most people have more free time in the summer, and it’s also easier to transition into your new body. Rather than having to answer endless questions about your recent physical changes, you can take the time to rest and ease into your new appearance and return to school or work rejuvenated, recovered, and ready to take on the world. Popular Cosmetic Procedures During Summer While I perform a wide… Read More
