Today, men are caring more about the way they look. They are wearing designer suits, paying more attention to their grooming, and there are even several successful lines of men’s skin care and beauty products. However, when it comes to getting the body they want, sometimes regular visits to the gym and a healthy diet aren’t enough. Aging also begins creeping in, causing faces to wrinkle and sag. Dr. Del Corral believe that there is no reason men should feel unwelcome to pursuing cosmetic treatment to achieve the look they desire – they have just as much of a right to be comfortable and confident with their appearance.National trends agree. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased by more than 106% between 1997 and 2017.
Botox And Facial Fillers For Men
This is the most common procedure for men and the most common procedure overall in the United States. Botox has been in use for almost 30 years. Initially, Botox was indicated for medical use (torticollis, muscle contractures, spasmodic dysphonia) and then gained FDA approval in 1999 for the use of relaxing muscles of the forehead that cause creases and lines.
The use of Botox for men is becoming more and more common. The most important principles when injecting Botox are that the forehead maintain some motion, while raising the brows somewhat and softening the vertical lines between the eyes.
Fillers are used to soften smile lines and often times can be used to soften hollows around the eyes, which can age men tremendously.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Gynecomastia is a medical condition in which a man has developed excess breast fat and tissue, resulting in breast enlargement and a feminine appearance of his chest. Most men who struggle with gynecomastia will simply attempt to hide their condition and disguise it under loose-fitting clothing. While exercise and weight lifting can often help with small improvements, full treatment of gynecomastia may require surgery.

Male Facial Surgery
Facial plastic surgery continues to be a more popular option for men who are looking to maintain a youthful look – especially in the young and competitive business world. In 2015, eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty), nose surgery (rhinoplasty) and ear surgery (Otoplasty) were among the top five surgical procedures for men.
Dr. Del Corral knows that facial surgery is different for men than it is for women. Men who are seeking out facial plastic surgery want to improve the signs of aging while maintaining their masculine appearance. Men are taking a greater interest in their own appearance for multiple reasons. Culture is shifting, meaning men are no longer expected to look rugged and weathered. Instead, a man’s softer and smoother skin is considered a benefit. Additionally, the challenging job market can give men a reason to consider an elective procedure, ensuring they keep a competitive edge. Additionally, more men are becoming single later in life and want to look good as they enter the dating world.
Body Lift for Men
Men who have lost a large amount of weight often are left to deal with excess skin left behind. Although it is important to continue exercising regularly and eating healthy to maintain your figure, many times the skin will not go away without surgery.
We perform the body lift for men who are looking to get rid of the loose, hanging skin around the waist and lower body. The surgery consists of a circumferential incision around the body to remove a band of excess skin and restore the underlying muscles and tissue. Because it is a more invasive procedure, recovery will take some time, but the results can be life-changing.
Men who undergo a body lift are able to wear clothing that fits properly, exercise easier, and feel better overall for the hard work that they have done to lose the weight. This is their reward.
