With the industry being marketed almost universally toward women, it can be easy to forget that many plastic surgery procedures are not solely for the female population.
Most of the time, the facial surgeries that restore youth and vitality in women have the same effect in men; it is just not as well-advertised.
Male facial plastic surgery can create more masculine and angular contours, reduce the signs of aging, and restore balance to the face.
Male Facial Plastic Surgery Can:
1. Restore a Thinning Hairline
Hair loss is very common among men—even in men as young as their 20s. While thinning hair or male pattern baldness are commonly the results of genetics combined with the aging process, hair loss can also be the result of illness or overly stressful lifestyles.
Cosmetic hair loss treatments can be used to address issues like thinning hair, bald spots, and a receding hairline. One of the most effective methods for hair loss treatment involves the use of platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injections.
A platelet-rich plasma hair loss treatment involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient, isolating the plasma from the red blood cells, and injecting the growth factor-rich plasma into areas demonstrating hair loss.
The process is relatively short, and there is no downtime needed. After a few treatments, you will start to see the gradual thickening and regrowth of hair.
2. Add Jawline Definition
A pronounced chin and jawline is a defining feature for many men. A chin implant creates this masculine feature for men who naturally lack projection and definition.
A chin implant offers:
- Enhanced chin projection
- Correction of a weak or receding chin
- Facial harmony
- Masculine facial angles
- Improved jawline definition
A chin implant enhances volume by inserting individually tailored silicone prosthetics into the chin through an inner-mouth incision. Results are visible immediately, and most people can show off their new feature within a week.
3. Bring Back Youthful Skin
Both men and women experience the negative effects of aging. A facelift is a trusted anti-aging surgery that helps reduce the signs of aging.
The incisions in a facelift are made behind the hairline at the back of the ears, which makes scarring easy to hide. During a facelift, excess skin is removed, and the facial muscles are lifted to create a more youthful appearance. A facelift can erase wrinkles, correct sagging skin, and restore an awakened appearance.
4. Eliminate Noticeable Ears
The ears are interesting features. They come in all shapes, sizes, and projections, and while women can cover misshapen or protruding ears with longer hairstyles, the shorter, more-tailored hairstyles of men do not always give them that luxury. Therefore, men of all ages can complain about having large or overly protruding ears.
An otoplasty, or an ear surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that improves the size and shape of the ears. This can be done by pinning the ears so that they protrude less or can physically reduce the size of the ears by reshaping the cartilage. The technique used will depend on your desired ear aesthetic.
