As we age, factors such as sun exposure, gravity, genetics, and various lifestyle and environmental elements can start to impact our facial appearance. Some of the most common symptoms of aging that men tend to notice in the face include smile lines, wrinkles, sagging skin in the midface, and jowling. Fortunately, these concerns can usually be treated simultaneously with facelift surgery. During this popular facial procedure, lax skin is first lifted and separated from underlying musculature through careful and meticulous technique. The muscles of the face are then tightened, excess skin is removed, and the remaining skin is pulled taut for a smoother, rejuvenated aesthetic.

Rhinoplasty is a facial procedure that can resize and/or reshape various parts of the nose while enhancing balance among facial features. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, this surgical treatment can also help correct structural issues (such as a deviated septum) to improve nasal breathing. During rhinoplasty, nasal cartilage and bone is removed and/or recontoured through tiny incisions made inside (closed rhinoplasty) or outside (open rhinoplasty) the nose. In rare instances, a cartilage graft taken from elsewhere on the body may be used to achieve an optimal outcome. Throughout the entire treatment process, our doctors are careful to preserve and/or accentuate the particular characteristics that distinguish the male nose.

Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can be an excellent option for many men who feel the appearance of their eyes make them look sad, angry, older, and/or more tired than they actually are. Based on the particular needs and goals of the patient, this procedure can be performed to smooth wrinkled upper and/or lower eyelids, lift sagging upper eyelid skin, reduce puffiness around the eyes, remove or redistribute fat in the upper and/or lower lids, and minimize dark bags and circles below the eyes. Along with these aesthetic enhancements, blepharoplasty can help improve field of vision for individuals whose eyesight is impaired by drooping upper eyelid skin. Our doctors are highly skilled in both upper and lower blepharoplasty techniques, and they can help you achieve a revitalized look that appears completely natural.
