What Are Your Male Plastic Surgery Options?
Facelift With Neck Lift
Facelift with neck lift surgery restores angular facial contours by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, reducing jowls, tightening neck muscles and skin, and manipulating facial fat.
While facelift surgery is commonly performed alongside a neck lift to maintain balance, a neck lift can be performed without a facelift if only the neck is displaying signs of laxity. Neck lift surgery smooths vertical banding and can minimize the appearance of a double chin.
Eyelid surgery addresses the effects of sun damage and premature aging on the eyelids. These signs of aging include hooded upper eyelids, puffy bags beneath the eyes, and skin laxity that is limiting your range of vision.
Brow lift surgery addresses horizontal lines on the brows, the “11” lines in between the eyebrows, and drooping brows. This procedure can be performed with or without eyelid surgery to restore youthfulness to the upper part of the face.
Fat Transfer to the Face
Facial fat is responsible for providing your face with its angular and youthful contours. This fat diminishes with age and sun exposure, harsh environments, and smoking. Fat transfer to the face removes unwanted fat from the body with liposuction and transfers it to the face to restore volume.
Injectables and Fillers
Injectable treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers are rapidly increasing in popularity among men. These non-surgical procedures temporarily eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and restore facial volume.
Liposuction permanently removes stubborn diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat from various regions of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, chest, and back.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery tightens abdominal muscles, reduces abdominal fat, and trims excess skin to provide you with a firm and smooth abdominal contour. Tummy tuck surgery allows you to gain a gym body without the gym.
Thigh Lift Surgery
Thigh lift surgery is often performed after significant weight loss has resulted in loose skin and excess pockets of fat on the upper thighs. This surgery is performed within the inner thigh crease to minimize visible scarring.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From Male Plastic Surgery?
The recovery period for your male plastic surgery varies depending on the procedure(s) that you underwent.
Non-surgical injectable treatments do not require a recovery period, and men can return to work and their normal activities immediately following the procedure. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 24 hours.
Surgical procedures require that men take some time off of work and their usual routines as male plastic surgery will result in bruising, swelling, and some discomfort. These side effects can be lessened with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication, cold compresses, and rest.
Men should get on their feet soon after their surgical procedure to encourage blood flow. Proper circulation will lessen the risk of blood clots following the surgery. Most men return to work one to two weeks following their surgical procedure—depending on the difficulty of their job. Strenuous exercise—including lifting weights—is not recommended for at least six weeks.
What Are the Risks of Male Plastic Surgery?
All surgical procedures come with risk. Male plastic surgery is no different. Potential complications include:
- Adverse reactions to the anesthesia
- Blood clots
- Fluid accumulation
- Changes in skin sensation
- Prolonged healing
- Unfavorable scarring
- Nerve injury
You can reduce your risk of developing these complications by following all of Dr. Kronowitz’s recommendations.
When Will I See My Male Plastic Surgery Results?
Male plastic surgery results begin to show immediately following the procedure but continue to improve over the following weeks and months as the bruising and swelling subside and the new contours start to take shape.
The results of non-surgical treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers take up to one week to fully develop.
While the results of your male plastic surgery will be long lasting, no surgical or non-surgical treatment can stop the aging process or prevent you from regaining the weight. Patients should follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight to lengthen their results.
How Much Does Male Plastic Surgery Cost?
Male plastic surgery is personalized to you and your needs. The cost of your male plastic surgery will vary significantly depending on your specific anatomy and the surgical techniques that were used.
The total cost of your male plastic surgery will also include:
- Anesthesia fees
- Facility fees
- Surgeon’s fees
- Geographical location
Dr. Kronowitz will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.
