It wasn’t all that many years ago that smoking cigarettes, cigars and pipes used to be acceptable strictly for men. Then women fought for their rights and got in on the act, which is today understood to be entirely unhealthy. But in those early years, it was seen as forward movement in women’s rights. No one today would think twice about a woman lighting up to have a smoke.

Now, there’s an area in which women have typically been the primary partakers and finally men are joining in. I’m talking about plastic or cosmetic surgery. Men are getting in on the quickest and safest ways (much safer than smoking) to reverse the signs of aging. And the only side effects are greater confidence and a more youthful appeal. There is no Surgeon General’s warning associated with cosmetic surgery.

This newfound comfort with cosmetic surgery is giving men new career options and longer life in their careers. When it comes to plastic surgery I have to say to the men, you’ve come a long way mister!

It’s Time to Man Up For Greater Confidence

Finding your comfort level with cosmetic surgery is very personal. Some of the procedures that are most popular with men include the following.

Kybella™ is a new injectable treatment for the submental or double chin area that dissolves fat with deoxycholic acid, the naturally occurring acid that is produced in the body to absorb fats. If you find your shirt collars are tighter than ever making you feel old and unattractive, you can now melt away your double chin without liposuction or surgical procedures – with a series of injections!

Kybella™ was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2015 as ‘ a treatment for adults with moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat.’

Gynecomastia is the condition in men that appears as large, feminine-looking breasts. Iit is estimated to affect almost half of the male population. This condition, can have a huge negative effect on a man’s self-esteem and self-confidence.

You do not have to hide under loose shirts and bulky clothing any longer. Men of all ages and backgrounds benefit from male breast reduction. This procedure is especially beneficial for men who: Cannot resolve their condition through other means, such as weight loss; Maintain a healthy, stable weight; Avoid drug use and smoking.

In addition, men choose injectable fillers because they are quick, effective, and require minimal recovery time. Your surgeon will perform the injections in our relaxing medical spa suite using a very fine needle for maximum control and comfort. The entire treatment is usually complete in under an hour. Injectable treatments can be administered over a lunch hour with no down time and no questions asked.

Eyelid surgery can also be a real wake up call for men who are looking to take years off their face and renew their confidence

So, whatever treatment you’ve been considering, it’s time to take the leap. Schedule a consultant with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and find out how exciting it is to have come such a long way from looking “distinguished” as you age to anti-aging.
