Cosmetic surgery is generally seen as being for women. Traditionally, women have been the ones to have liposuctions, facelifts and breast augmentations. Today, the mindset towards cosmetic surgery, in general, is changing with the process being much more open towards people of varying backgrounds, income levels, and even genders. Overall, men feel that there is less stigma towards having these elective procedures done. At OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, California, Dr. Tavoussi offers a variety of procedures that can help men feel more comfortable in their own bodies and reverse the signs of skin aging.
Alternative Cosmetic Procedures for Men
Men can also consider less drastic procedures, such as collagen injections or Botox injections, which can add plumpness to the face or reduce wrinkles. Dr. Tavoussi commonly uses Juvaderm or Restylane for fillers. These must be injected every few months to maintain the plump look. They are often used in the cheeks or forehead. Botox is another option that men can use if they are concerned about fine wrinkles, particularly around their eyes. Botox temporarily paralyzes the very small muscles beneath the skin’s surface. Botox must be used every three to four months to maintain good results.
Men who have lost a great deal of weight have several options open to them. Liposuctions are not unheard of for men who still have a stubborn weight that they cannot lose through diet and exercise. However, a tummy tuck or body lift can greatly enhance the shape of a man’s body by removing excessive skin and tissues and sculpting the underlying muscles.
