Approximately 10% of all plastic surgery procedures these days are for male patients. More and more men are turning to plastic surgeons and their teams to help reshape and reform their bodies and lifestyles to be as healthy as they can be. Examples of this are seen below with the top 5 surgical and non-surgical treatments for men in 2017, according to a study from ASAPS, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Top 5 Surgical Procedures for Men:

1. Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery to shape almost any area holding excessive fat. Liposuction can help slim the neck, the lower back and belly, and even the arms and thighs. This procedure is performed in our outpatient surgery suite located at Capizzi, MD. Patients benefit from minimal scarring and downtime. Most are able to return to work and normal physical activity within a few days. Results develop over the first several weeks after your procedure as your body acclimates to your new physique.

2. Blepharoplasty

We can rejuvenate and brighten your eyes by removing excess skin and soft tissue with an eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty. The procedure takes just 45 minutes and is performed using local anesthesia. You’ll look years younger instantly, with minimal “social down time” of 3 days.

3. Gynecomastia Surgery

Many men deal with an excess growth of breast tissue, or gynecomastia, during their lives. To combat this we remove extra skin and soft tissue from the chest using liposuction and/or skin reduction techniques. Let us help you achieve and restore a masculine chest profile you won’t be afraid to show off by the pool.

4. Body Contouring

The sit-ups and cardio can only get us so far. Call on the expert Plastic Surgeons at Capizzi, M.D., and ask about the various types of body contouring. Removing skin and underlying soft tissues that are areas of concern are an option. Or muscle tightening and liposuction may be more appropriate for your situation. This personalized procedure can help refine and shape to provide you with a youthful appearance.

5. Facelift

Reverse the effects of years of sun damage and facial aging with a surgical facelift. Using a number of surgical techniques we can reshape the skin and soft tissues of the face to create a healthy look. Additionally, Profound Skin Tightening is a non-surgical approach to reverse facial aging. This device stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to create healthy, firm skin.

Top 5 Non-Surgical Procedures for Men:

1. Botox®

Botox® is one of the safest, most commonly used techniques to relax the facial muscles. This injectable smooths wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes. The treatment has zero downtime and takes just minutes to perform. Results can last up to several months! Schedule an appointment, or come see us anytime at our walk-in Botox® Bar.

2. NeoGraft® Hair Restoration

New innovations in hair restoration and hair transplant technology are beginning to surface. We are also seeing more and more patients in our office requesting this treatment. NeoGraft® Hair Restoration restores hair without the downsides of traditional hair transplants. This means: no linear scar, no general anesthesia, and very minimal down time. This is a great procedure to have done any time of the year and has yielded incredible results!

3. Non-Surgical Fat Reduction

A great way to shed unwanted fat is with CoolSculpting®. This is a clinically-proven, FDA- approved method of eliminating unwanted fat cells in the belly, buttocks, thighs, back and arms. This non-invasive treatment has no downtime and minimal post- procedure discomfort or restriction. It is a perfect way to shed the “spare tire” of that Dad-bod for good.

4. Hair Removal

Say good-bye to the razor and hello to laser hair removal techniques for eliminating unwanted body hair. Our laser technology is designed to focus solely on the follicular layer, thus leaving your skin and other soft tissue unharmed and intact. Hair loss can be permanent after a few treatment sessions, which will be guided in accordance with your own goals and skin character.

5. Skincare & Laser Peels

MicroLaserPeel (MLP) treatments are also an excellent way to retexture and resurface facial skin. Also it is a great way to smooth transitions of pigmented skin. Combine an MLP with a dermaplane to remove facial fuzz and dried, hardened cells on the surface of the facial skin. This will only further improve skin texture and accentuate a healthy, smooth complexion.
