Cosmetic Surgery for Men

The modern world places a high emphasis on outer appearances and fitness is a goal that everyone wants to achieve. Hence, it comes as no surprise that men from all age groups are coming forward and embracing cosmetic surgery in order to improve their physique and overall appearance.

Surgeons explain that there are differences between the cosmetic surgery goals of men and women, even though the procedures are similar. There are several men who want a more proportionate nose, a slimmer waistline or a younger looking face. Majority of the cosmetic surgery procedures needed to achieve such goals are dependent on factors like beard density, body type and/or skin thickness.

Facelift

Old age is usually marked by visible signs such as wrinkles and lines, brown spots, and loose skin. However, these natural aging signs aren’t absolutely irreversible because cosmetic surgery has a solution for it: a facelift. The facelift procedure, a very popular procedure among both women and men, is also referred to as ‘rhytidectomy’. If you wish to do away with the sagging skin and wrinkles on your face and enjoy a more youthful appearance, then this procedure is perfect for you. A facelift helps in reducing/eliminating skin that is no longer naturally elastic. This skin is typically found in areas such as the jawline, mouth, and eyes. The facelift procedure will leave you with reduced wrinkles and lines, smoother skin, and a rejuvenated overall appearance.

Tummy Tuck

You may have dropped all the excess pounds, but you’ve also probably dropped your skin. It isn’t uncommon for men to notice the loose skin around their belly and this has a rather unflattering effect. Also, this excess flab refuses to respond to any sort of exercise or diet, no matter how sincere your efforts may be. A tummy tuck procedure is suitable for men who find themselves stuck in this situation and wish to flaunt a slimmer, toned and more attractive abdomen.

Dr. Galanis is experienced in different types of male cosmetic procedures and encourages men to be more forthcoming about their desires to enjoy improved appearances. He also informs that the goal of male cosmetic procedures is quite different from female cosmetic procedures. For men, the focus is on retaining or creating masculine features, and these might be more prominent or sharper when compared to women’s features.
