Male Facial Plastic Surgery on the Rise in South Florida
The Palm Beach Center for Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery has noticed a surge in the number of men who are seeking facial plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. “At this point, it’s just a common thing men do to take care of themselves,” said Dr. Jean-Paul Azzi of The Palm Beach Center for Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery. “It’s like having a personal trainer or getting your clothes professionally tailored. Facial plastic surgery can help a man confidently put his best face forward in both his professional life and his personal life.”
Though many male cosmetic procedures are similar to female procedures, there are subtle differences in technique that produce uniquely masculine results. Dr. Azzi understands the important distinctions that result in handsome, natural-looking features while keeping in mind individual patient goals and time-frame.
Below are some of the most commonly requested facial plastic surgery areas for men:
Every man wants a strong, chiseled jawline and well-defined profile to portray a masculine appearance. Chin augmentation surgery can provide that subtle adjustment to create a distinctive, defined appearance, and in many cases, a slight augmentation is all that is needed to harmonize the facial features.
A disproportionate nose can disrupt facial symmetry. Rhinoplasty, commonly called a “nose job,” is no longer only for men who have suffered a nasal injury. In fact, it’s THE most commonly performed male facial plastic surgery procedure because of the subtle yet dramatic improvements it can make to the face. Dr. Azzi is an expert in providing ideal shape without feminizing the nose.
Just like women, men show signs of aging around the eyes. Bulging fat pads around the eyelids with accentuated tear troughs suggest fatigue and lack of sleep, although you may have gotten plenty of rest. Loose hanging lids and sagging skin distract from the eyes themselves and prohibit expression. Eyelid rejuvenation or blepharoplasty can be a total game changer by removing excess fat and repositioning the tissue around the eyes. After having a blepharoplasty procedure, men commonly say that their new look is refreshed, rested and makes them appear many years younger.
A sagging neck can easily add years and pounds to the appearance, not to mention, it can make dress shirts increasingly uncomfortable. Neck lifts may remove fat deposits that can contribute to the appearance of a weak jawline or double chin. A sharp chin-neck junction is part of the ideal masculine jawline and a neck lift can be a valuable procedure in restoring a more youthful appearance.
When it comes to the face, proportionality is everything, and all facial sub-units should be proportionate to each other. Frequently, Dr. Azzi’s male patients will tell him that their nose is “too big,” but what many patients don’t realize is that the nose can be magnified if one has (for example) a “weak chin.” A chin that doesn’t stick out far enough highlights the distance the nose projects outward. By making subtle changes to the nasal shape and simultaneously increasing the distance the chin projects from the face, the overall facial shape can be improved considerably. Dr. Azzi is a facial symmetry expert and would be happy to make recommendations when you come in for a consultation.
