It’s a common misconception that cosmetic surgery is only for women. Men are also concerned with their physical appearance and will frequently seek out plastic surgery. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported over 1.3 million men underwent cosmetic surgery in 2016. In the last six years, as the social stigmas around having cosmetic procedures has faded and the surgical techniques have become more refined producoing natural results, more men than ever are seeking out treatments that address their specific areas of concern.
No matter what attribute you’re interested in changing about yourself, Dr. Anureet Bajaj at Bajaj Plastic Surgery in Oklahoma City, OK, will provide her honest opinions and expertise that will help boost your active lifestyle and restore your masculine confidence.
It may come as a surprise to learn that men are just as concerned about fine lines and facial volume loss as women as they get older. Botox® treatments offer men in their 20s the ability to prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming in areas like their foreheads, between their eyes, and around their mouths—the areas where expression lines generally form. Botox injections are also popular among the older generation of men interested in restoring their youthful appearances.
Dermal fillers are another injectable treatment growing in popularity among the male population. Dermal fillers restore facial volume by using a hyaluronic acid-based gel injected into the skin’s surface to enhance facial characteristics like a sharp, contoured jawline, restore facial hollows under the eyes, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles that have developed due to facial skin sagging.
Gynecomastia—Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a uniquely male surgical procedure that addresses the accumulation of fat or glandular tissues that enlarge male breasts due to hormonal imbalance, weight fluctuations, or certain medications. Enlarged male breasts can cause self-esteem issues and years of embarrassment. Stubborn fat and glandular tissue can also be tough to eliminate, even with a proper diet and active lifestyle. Dr. Bajaj uses liposuction, and other techniques including direct excision and Renuvion, to help contour the chest to a more masculine appearance.
The eyelids are typically the first region of the face that starts to show signs of aging. Over time, the upper eyelids develop hanging skin, and the lower lids harbor fatty bags and deep circles that create a tired appearance. Male eyelid surgery holds some subtle differences from a female blepharoplasty as male eyelids and eyebrows are shaped differently. In addition, male eyelid skin tends to be thicker and the muscles heavier. Dr. Bajaj understands these anatomical differences and applies specific techniques when performing a male blepharoplasty procedure that produce natural-looking results unique to the male facial structure.
Male Tummy Tuck
A tummy tuck is often associated with women as a way of gaining their pre-pregnancy bodies back, but men also see significant benefits from tummy tucks. Extreme body changes, such as aging or dramatic weight loss, can lead to loose skin and changes in fatty tissue around the abdomen. As a result, tummy tuck surgery has increased in popularity among men who want to achieve a tighter midsection. A tummy tuck at Bajaj Plastic Surgery will tighten loose abdominal muscles and remove loose, hanging skin from around the abdomen.
