Male Aesthetic Concerns and Solutions
Everyone wants to look their best, including men. The latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal more men are taking a proactive approach to maintaining or improving their physical appearance. In this blog post, Dr. Donald Hause of Sacramento Aesthetic Surgery discusses three common cosmetic concerns men have, as well as solutions.
The area around the eyes is one of the first body areas to give clues about an individual’s age. Dr. Hause often meets with men who complain about wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes. This, paired with puffy under-eye bags and sagging skin on the upper eyelids, creates a tired or exhausted look. And like women, men know that a tired appearance can be off-putting, while bright, young-looking eyes can create a warm and approachable appearance.
Solution: Fortunately, there are several options available for younger-looking eyes. Dr. Hause is highly trained and skilled in performing a range of facial rejuvenation procedures including eyelid surgery and brow lift. Eyelid surgery can be used to remove drooping skin on the upper eyelids and resculpt tissue and fat on the lower eyelids to create a well-rested appearance. A brow lift is used to raise the forehead muscles and remove excess fat and skin on the brow, resulting in a relaxed and energetic facial appearance.
Muffin top is just one of the several “cutesy” nicknames given to the roll of fat some people have on the abdomen and waist. But make no mistake about it, there’s nothing cute about unwanted flab poking out from underneath your shirt. And like many women, men can struggle with shedding pounds and obtaining a sleek six-pack. In many cases, small deposits of fat still remain even with a strict diet and regular exercise.
Solution: If excess skin on the abdomen is what’s causing your muffin top woes, a tummy tuck can help. Tummy tuck excises loose skin, and the remaining abdominal skin is tightened. If small, stubborn deposits of fat on the abdomen and waist are your concern, liposuction is a viable solution. Tummy tuck and liposuction are commonly performed together to create a smoother, more toned abdomen.
Man boobs, a medical condition known as gynecomastia, is more common than most people would think. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates approximately 40 to 60 percent of all men have some degree of enlarged breast tissue. Men with man boobs often struggle with self-esteem issues and physical discomforts such as chafing, rashes, and infection.
Solution: Male breast reduction is the only proven way to eliminate excess breast tissue and achieve a toned and classically masculine chest. During the procedure, excess fatty tissue and skin are removed while the remaining tissue and skin are sculpted to create a flatter and firmer appearance.
