What Can Men Expect During Their Recovery from Dermal Fillers?

Men of all ages are discovering the many benefits of dermal fillers: These versatile compounds can be used to fill in distracting creases, amplify facial volume, and contour specific facial features. Many guys are using dermal fillers to create a more defined jawline or more prominent cheeks without surgery. Some fillers, like Juvéderm® Voluma, can actually emulate a mid-face lift. Juvéderm® Voluma raises and fills the cheeks, tightening loose skin in the process and restoring a youthful yet masculine look.

One of the primary advantages of this type of treatment is its lack of downtime; recovering from filler injections is relatively easy and doesn’t require bed rest. Still, this shouldn’t be taken to mean that fillers have absolutely no side effects. If you’re interested in trying Juvéderm®, you should learn what to expect ahead of time in order to ensure a comfortable post-procedure experience.

Recovering from Dermal Filler Treatment

In some ways, men have an easier time than women when recovering from injectable treatments. Men don’t bruise as easily as women do, and because they have thicker skin and larger facial muscles, they often require less filler. This naturally limits the two main side effects of dermal fillers: Bruising and swelling around the injection sites.

Fillers are the closet treatment to a magic wand. Usually there are no side effects, but mild bruising is possible. Patients can return to work right away. If for some reason you were unhappy with the results it is completely reversible.

Cosmetic Enhancement for Men- What Are My Options?

Men… Plastic surgery isn’t just for the ladies. You too can enhance your looks, boost your confidence, and maintain the competitive edge in your career through cosmetic enhancement. Take the first step today and learn more about your options. Then, once you see how plastic surgery can benefit you, contact us and schedule a consultation. How will you benefit from male plastic surgery?

Popular Surgical Options for Male Patients

What cosmetic surgical procedures are most popular for male patients? Take a look below:

  • Liposuction– As you get older, it gets harder to keep that stubborn fat off of your waistline. Men naturally store fat across the abdomen and liposuction can help that fat go away. This procedure removes fat deposits using a special suction tube. The surgery takes 1-2 hours and often yields great results, especially if you still have good skin elasticity. If you aren’t getting the fat loss results you’d like from the gym, come try liposuction.
  • Male Breast Reduction– Gynecomastia is a condition where excess breast tissue develops in male patients. Many men find this highly embarrassing. We can remove this excess tissue through liposuction, helping you to restore your confidence and your masculine figure.
  • Blepharoplasty– Do you look tired all of the time, even when you’re well rested? You might benefit from eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). This procedure corrects drooping upper eyelids and can eliminate those puffy bags under the eyes. Look younger and rejuvenated!
  • Post Bariatric Surgery– For patients that have lost a large amount of weight, post bariatric surgery can be a solution to that excess hanging skin. Post-bariatric surgery can tighten up your body, helping you to really appreciate those weight loss results.

Non-Surgical Options

Surgery isn’t the only way for men to enhance their looks. Many of our male patients opt for non-surgical and minimally invasive options.

  • Dermal Fillers– When used properly dermal fillers can enliven and rejuvenate the face by filling in pits and wrinkles, adding volume, and restoring facial contours. Dermal fillers are temporary, but application takes just minutes with results that last for months (and in some cases years).
  • BOTOX®– Say goodbye to those crow’s feet, worry lines, and forehead wrinkles with BOTOX®. This injectable treatment is one of our most popular amongst both male and female patients. It temporarily halts nerve impulses to overactive facial muscles for a relaxed, natural look.
  • Fraxel Laser– Smooth, brighten, and rejuvenate your skin with cosmetic laser treatments. The Fraxel laser is a skin resurfacing treatment that is well known for its ability to transform the skin. If you have wrinkles, or age spots, ask us about the Fraxel laser.

Not Just Surgery- Men Love Minimally Invasive Options Too

Cosmetic surgery isn’t the only way for men to enhance their natural good looks. Just as women can enjoy minimally invasive treatment options for a quick beauty boost, men too can benefit from cosmetic treatments like BOTOX®, chemical peels, and laser skin rejuvenation treatments. Last year more than 385,000 men received BOTOX® injections, an increase of 310% from 2000. Chemical peels (94.625) and dermal fillers (95,361) were popular choices for male patients. Ask us how we can help you look your best.

Minimally invasive options like BOTOX® or dermal fillers are a great way to get started with cosmetic enhancement. Most treatments are performed in the comfort of our offices, taking less than an hour from start to finish. You can easily come in on your lunch and return to work right afterwards. With minimal recovery time and sometimes instant results, our male patients can start seeing the benefits of cosmetic treatment, without having to commit to a surgical procedure. Do you want to look better? This is a great way to start.
