Cosmetic Surgery for Men
More men are enjoying the benefits of cosmetic surgery than ever before. The stigma that men used to attach to cosmetic surgery is evaporating, and social standards for men's appearance are also changing. With more pressure to look younger and slimmer, men are turning to cosmetic surgery.
Dr. John Smoot and Dr. Wendell Smoot, La Jolla and San Diego area cosmetic surgeons, understand how to meet men's cosmetic needs in today's changing environment. In their many years of practicing cosmetic surgery, they have performed successful procedures on men and are ready to help you as you consider your cosmetic enhancement choices.
One impetus for men's increased interest in cosmetic procedures is the highly competitive business environment. Older people are sometimes unfairly viewed as less efficient and productive. Baby Boomers have attained the ripe age of 50. In a youth-driven society, where people change jobs more than ever before, 50-year-olds compete with 30-year-olds for jobs, and can't afford to give the impression that they are tired or unfriendly. These men seek correction for sagging eyelids, furrowed brows, and frown lines.
But the business world is not the only driving force behind men wanting cosmetic surgery. Men want to stay in step with wives who appear younger as a result of cosmetic surgery. It's not unusual for a man who responds to his wife's facelift by trying to reclaim his own youthful appearance.
Cosmetic surgery for men employs many procedures that women use also. However, since a man's body is structurally different, varied techniques are required. Since men's skin is thicker and they have facial hair, they have a greater blood supply. The outcome is a higher risk of bleeding but wounds that heal well.
Some popular facial cosmetic surgery procedures include treatment of for baggy eyelids, wrinkles, a receding hairline, frown lines, and jowls. Some of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures sought by men include:
Every year hundreds of thousands of men undergo these procedures that help them look younger and fitter.
There are also a number of very popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men. Skin care treatments like microdermabrasion can take years off your appearance. Botox injections work well to reduce the gruff old man appearance. Fillers like Restylane and Collagen offer wrinkle and line removal options that can rid men of worrisome deep wrinkles and folds.
