Plastic surgery for men is one of the fastest growing segments within plastic surgery. More and more men want to combat the signs of aging while maintaining their competitive edge. Dr. Mark Pinsky is experienced in the many surgical and non-surgical cosmetic options available for men. Though many procedures for men are similar to those performed on women, there are significant differences in technique that produce uniquely masculine results. Dr. Mark Pinsky, a patient himself, understands the subtle (and sometimes not-so-subtle) distinctions that result in handsome and natural-looking features while keeping in mind individual patient goals and timeframes.
At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we recognize that an increasing number of men are interested in improving their looks to appear more fit, stress-free, and youthful. Our office has a significant male patient base and understands the unique needs of men, including privacy and downtime. Please contact us today to talk about non-surgical and surgical options to help you look as young and vital as you feel. Some of the most common procedures for men are detailed below.
Thinning hair, a receding hairline, and balding areas of the scalp are some of the most common cosmetic concerns for men. A thick head of hair can convey youth, appeal, and vitality, whereas hair loss and a receding hairline can signal advancing age and impact confidence. With the minimally invasive NeoGraft® treatment, this scarless procedure can restore thicker, fuller hair by transplanting individual hair follicles for results that look exceptionally natural and continue to grow for many years to come. This technique is far more successful than traditional strip method hair grafting. First of all, there is no scar at the back of the head. The hair follicles survive at a much greater rate, yielding more hair per graft than traditional methods, and the transplanted hair tends to be thicker and “healthier” than that of traditional hair transplants.
Both skin and muscle lose elasticity with age, leading to softening of the face and neck (jowls). A neck lift is designed to reduce sagging skin and tighten muscles to give a more youthful appearance. Scars can be hidden in natural creases, behind the hairline, as well as in or behind the ears. A neck lift also reduces excess skin fat deposits that can contribute to the appearance of a double chin or weak jawline. These procedures can create smoother skin and a more masculine profile.
Unlike the procedure performed on women, a brow and forehead lift for men is not intended to raise the brows (a feminizing feature). In men, this procedure is designed to reduce the appearance of furrows or frown lines between the brows and smooth out creases along the forehead. Frown lines, deep furrows, and forehead creases all contribute to an older, stressed, or angry appearance. Dr. Pinsky understands and utilizes techniques that produce a very natural-looking outcome that compliments male anatomy.
Being viewed as attractive has a close correlation to strong facial symmetry. So men who feel they have disproportionate noses, either too small, too large, or “crooked,” can greatly benefit from rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job. Reshaping the nose to balance facial features can often provide subtle yet dramatic improvement to the entire face. This treatment can also correct functional problems, such as a deviated septum.
