Procedures for Men
In recent years, more and more men have discovered the many benefits and advantages offered by surgical and non-surgical cosmetic enhancement. Innovative treatment options for facial rejuvenation, skin care, and body contouring can allow men to look more youthful and fit while increasing their self-esteem and feeling more confident at work or social events. Our board-certified plastic surgeon—Thomas Crabtree, MD—custom-designs all treatments to take into account the unique anatomical properties of male patients and create results that can accomplish individual goals with natural-looking outcomes.
Please take a look at some of our options below, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or to schedule a confidential consultation.
Dr. Crabtree offers an innovative option for men who would like to address a number of aesthetic concerns that may be affecting their self-confidence. The Executive Advantage option is a customized collection of treatments that combines a variety of surgical and/or non-surgical procedures based on individual goals. The treatment program can include procedures to reduce isolated pockets of excess fat, rejuvenate the skin to combat signs of age and stress, and recontour specific body areas to renew your appearance with natural-looking results. A typical package might include an eyelid lift, BOTOX® injections, and office-based liposuction.
Gynecomastia Surgery – Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a very common condition that creates the appearance of enlarged breasts in men. Individuals who experience gynecomastia often suffer from extreme self-consciousness about the condition. Fortunately, male breast reduction surgery can effectively treat gynecomastia by reducing excess fat deposits and/or glandular tissue in the chest to produce a “flatter” appearance.
Eyelid Lift for Men
It is not uncommon for some of the first prominent signs of aging among men to occur around the eyes. An eyelid lift can address a number of concerns that may be affecting the upper and/or lower eyelid regions and create a more youthful and refreshed aesthetic. Also known as eyelid surgery or “blepharoplasty,” eyelid lift procedures can remove excess skin and reduce/reposition excess fat over the eyes while tightening the remaining skin for a more vibrant and youthful look. In the lower eyelid areas, this treatment can smooth out puffiness and bagginess to produce a more rested appearance. Eyelid lifts can ultimately provide significant aesthetic improvement, and in some cases they can improve vision when excess skin over the upper eyelids is creating an obstruction. Additionally, scarring from the procedure is often virtually unnoticeable to others since the incisions are made in inconspicuous locations. With proper skin care, the results of eyelid surgery can last for many years.
Direct Neck Excision for Men
A direct neck excision for men, also known as a direct neck lift, can be an ideal solution for individuals who would like to address the effects of excess fat and inelastic skin that have collected under the chin and along the neck (sometimes referred to as “turkey neck”). This is an extremely common condition that can even affect men who are in top physical shape and take excellent care of their health. A direct neck excision utilizes a special incision technique that allows Dr. Crabtree to remove redundant skin and fatty tissue from the area. The remaining skin will be smoothed to improve neck contours, minimize signs of a “double chin,” and create a more youthful appearance. Direct neck excision procedures can typically be performed here at our practice under local anesthesia, and the downtime is significantly less extensive when compared with other types of neck rejuvenation surgeries.
Hi-Def Liposuction & Abdominal Etching for Men
Liposuction is a very popular body contouring procedure among both men and women and can be effectively utilized to reduce pockets of excess fat in virtually any body area. A special version of this treatment can be particularly advantageous for men who would like to achieve a more sculpted abdominal appearance. VASER® Hi-Def Liposuction can remove fat cells surrounding the muscle groups in the abdomen to create more abdominal definition by enhancing the visibility of those muscles – the “six-pack.” This advanced technique can also be used on other muscle groups in the upper body.
“BROTOX” – BOTOX® Cosmetic & Injectables
BOTOX® Cosmetic has remained one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement treatments for many years. In fact the popularity of this treatment has skyrocketed among men, and has even been given the nickname “BROTOX” to categorize its application for male patients. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an innovative injectable solution that contains an ingredient called botulinum toxin type A. This ingredient is capable of temporarily preventing muscles in targeted areas of the face from contracting and producing wrinkles. With precise injections and customized treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic can significantly reduce signs of age and stress in specific facial areas without resulting in an unnatural or “frozen” appearance.
“BROTOX” can be an ideal treatment for men who would like to smooth away furrows between the brows, crow’s feet, and creases along the forehead. The entire treatment can often be completed in about 15 minutes depending on each patient’s individual needs and goals, and there is no downtime after the procedure. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic often last three to four months, and occasional follow-up injections can help maintain the effects for longer periods.
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Advances in hair loss treatment have yielded a number of new options for men and women who are looking for effective ways to restore lost hair with results that look natural. One of those advances is known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and it does not require “hair plugs” or other types of surgical intervention. PRP therapy involves the extraction of a small amount of blood. The blood’s plasma, which is rich in growth factors, will be separated from the blood and delicately injected into the skin surrounding areas of thinning hair. This process uses natural properties that can provide fresh nutrients to dormant follicles in order to stimulate hair growth.
