Men not only want to look and feel their best they, deserve it as well. We are now entering a paradigm shift in aesthetic medicine where surgeons and specialists are not designing and implementing gender-specific procedures, but we are creating procedures to meet the demands and wants of society. At Neinstein Plastic Surgery, my Upper East Side patients are living healthier lifestyles than in the past and both men and women are looking for non and minimally invasive procedures to be the last mile in their aesthetic and fitness goals.
So, with the growing popularity of male cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures, I have outlined the most common procedures of 2019. I hope this list is helpful for all men who are considering procedures in 2019 and beyond, but do not know what a particular procedure could mean for them.
Liposuction simply removes fat from the love handles which are the most diet and exercise resistant area for men. My version is unique, however. In my approach, I use energy to melt fat and tighten skin with virtually no scarring or downtime, which is why this is the most in-demand procedure for health conscious men.
Similar to my younger fitness patients, I am using a lower dose of Botox in what I call the preventive range for men. I focus on the crow’s feet and 11 lines so men don’t look angry or aggressive, but I like to preserve some texture in the forehead so men can look great but age appropriate
Emsculpt is the first FDA approved muscle building device and has become dominated by our male market. Each 30 minute session is the equivalent of 20,000 sit ups but the real power of this device is for those already fit. For patients who are already in shape, Emsculpt helps push muscle cells beyond their plateaus so you can get those extra results that are so hard to obtain in the busy day-to-day of city life. The device also has a built in resting phase so it washes away the lactic acid, which means you don’t experience the same downtime and soreness that you would expect from 20,000 sit ups!
Our practice has incorporated the detoxifying and water reducing massage practice that has come out of Brazil and Colombia. We started these massages to help patients heal faster from surgery but we have found patients choose to continue them indefinitely. Its nice to be able to blend technology with human touch services like massage for great results.
With the advent of a more dynamic line of fillers to choose from we can now augment males in a unique and sophisticated way. For instance instead of a Nike -like ‘swoosh’ cheek bone of female products like restylane, defyne allows me to create a more robust and rigid cheek bone that pronounces masculinity.
