Real Men Don’t Age, They Mature
The world of plastic surgery has widened immensely in recent years as more men have come to realize the benefits of cosmetic procedures. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than one million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2013, and more than 200,000 of those procedures were surgical. As more members of the rich and famous set open up about their own plastic surgery experiences, men are discovering cosmetic procedures can be just as beneficial and acceptable for them as they are for women.
Dr Gear takes a conservative approach when working with his male patients, to provide subtle results while preserving a distinctly masculine look. While men can opt for nearly any procedure in his practice, the most common procedures performed on men include:
CoolSculpting and BodyFX are minimally-invasive procedures that eliminate stubborn fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Dr. Gear also sees many male patients that want liposuction to address fat around the waist and abdomen that won’t go away even with multiple visits to the gym.
Male Breast Reduction
This surgical procedure addresses a male condition known as gynecomastia, or enlargement of the glandular tissue in the breast. Male breast reduction surgery removes the excess tissue to produce a flatter, more masculine body profile.
Men tend to see some of the first effects of aging around the eyes, with drooping eyelids that give a perpetually weary look and even impair the line of vision. Eyelid surgery removes excess tissue and skin from the upper and lower lids, opening up the eyes and producing a refreshed, more youthful appearance.
The most common non-surgical procedures for men are Laser Hair removal, CoolSculpting, Botox and dermal fillers. These treatments allow men to regain their youthful appearance without surgery or downtime. These procedures take just a short appointment to complete and offer subtle results that make you look younger without giving up your strong, masculine profile.
