Men—you deserve to be pampered also! Treatment to feel good about oneself is not only for women. In fact, men are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures in ever-increasing numbers. Whether you wish to mitigate the results of aging or create a more chiseled appearance of the face, we offer plenty of options at StarkMD. The most popular surgical treatments for men include facelifts, neck lifts, skin tightening, eyelid surgery, brow lifts, and rhinoplasty.
Facelift surgery treats the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Incisions are made near the hairline, temples and around the ear, allowing access to the underlying facial tissue. The procedure restores the youthful appearance of the cheeks, decreases the appearance of jowls, and improves the contour of the jawline and neck.
Skin tightening without surgery: Morpheus8 and FaceTite
Skin tightening with FaceTite and Morpheus8 can produce a significant improvement in one’s facial appearance without surgery.
- FaceTite uses a pinpoint port to deliver radiofrequency and heat underneath the skin, decreasing fat cells and tightening collagen strands. FaceTite helps the skin achieve a smoother and more even appearance.
- Morpheus8 is a microneedling device that is able to penetrate deep layers of the skin and create precise levels of heat, safely stimulating collagen remodeling. By combining microneedling and radiofrequency heating technology, the Morpheus8 reduces wrinkles and tightens skin rapidly and easily.
Facetite and Morpheus8 can be used either together or separately depending on the patient’s goals.
Locations treated by Facetite and Morpheus8 include:
- Periorbital area
A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, treats the skin and fat in the neck that create jowls, the “turkey wattle,” and sagging, wrinkled skin and tissue on the neck. Some men are not ready for a full facelift, but do have sagging neck skin, fat deposits beneath the chin, or sagging jowls. Following a neck lift, most men can return to their usual activities within two weeks.
For men who retain good skin quality, liposuction may be all that is needed to remove excess fat. At StarkMD, we also offer non-surgical options to redefine the neck area. These include FaceTite, Morpheus8, and Kybella injections to melt away excess fat. FaceTite and Morpheu8 can effectively remove excess fat and tighten skin. Kybella dissolves under-chin (submental) fat with a series of injections of synthetic deoxycholic acid.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, surgically restores sagging eyelids. In lower lid blepharoplasty, Dr. Stark addresses fatty deposits or excess skin that make the eyelids appear puffy. In upper eyelid blepharoplasty, Dr. Stark removes excess droopy skin from the upper eyellid. Eyelid surgery is an age-defying surgery that produces a remarkable improvement in one’s overall look. Dr. Stark always says that an upper eyelid blepharoplasty is one the smallest surgeries with the most significant cosmetic gain.
The recovery time from eyelid surgery for men varies depending if an upper blepharoplasty or lower blepharoplasty is done. Recovery time from an upper blepharoplasty is minimal and most patients return to daily activities after several days. A lower blepharoplasty can take 1-2 weeks to recover depending upon the extent of treatment.
Once healed, patients will have a refreshed look that lasts for years.
A brow lift, or a forehead lift, can improve creases on the forehead as well as the appearance of a heavy, drooping brow and hooded eyelids, leaving the upper face appearing refreshed.
In males, a brow lift can be performed via selected techniques:
- Endoscopic brow lift, with specialized instruments threaded through small incisions
- Temporal brow lift, with a concealed incision along the hairline
- Direct brow lift, with an incision either in a wrinkle line or hidden along the brow line
A brow lift has a recovery period of one to two weeks depending upon technique.
A consultation with Dr. Stark will reveal the best treatment for your browlift. He will help you determine which technique will best restore a more vital, healthy, refreshed look to the male face.
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, reshapes your nose structure to create harmony and a balanced proportion among the facial features. Rhinoplasty can correct a number of cosmetic concerns, including:
- A hump or depression along the nasal bridge
- A hanging or bulbous nose tip
- A long or short nose
- A crooked nose
Rhinoplasty is a surgical treatment with two incision options—open or closed. A closed rhinoplasty involves incisions within the nose structure and is appropriate for minor cosmetic changes. An open rhinoplasty involves an incision at the base of the columella, allowing Dr. Stark to reveal the full nasal structure and produce precise and artistic results. Recovery from a rhinoplasty is about 1-2 weeks with residual swelling fading over the months following surgery.
