Male Plastic Surgery on the Rise
Jan 20, 2015

Male plastic surgery becoming more popularOne of the biggest plastic surgery trends of the past few years has been the rise in demand for male plastic surgery. More men than ever are opting for plastic surgery to look and feel their best. In fact, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased by more than 106 percent since 1997.

Drs. Gary Breslow and Jordan Farkas have personally observed this pattern in their own North Jersey plastic surgery practice and medical spa. Here, they explore why more men are pursuing cosmetic enhancement.

Executives Want to Stay Competitive

Aging business executives are eager to stay competitive and desirable in the job market. For many men, appearing animated and energetic helps boost their confidence in a younger workplace. An older CEO may opt for eyelid lift to rejuvenate eyes that have started to reveal his age. Or, a businessman may pursue body sculpting procedures like tummy tuck or male breast reduction to look as in-shape as his younger colleagues.

Retirees Want to Treat Themselves

With their emphasis on staying fit and healthy, this generation of retirees is more active than ever. They value looking great and feeling good, and surgery can help them enjoy an appearance that reflects their lively spirit. A retiree may decide a facelift helps him look as youthful as he feels. Retirees also have the time and resources required of surgery and subsequent recovery.

Fathers Want a “Daddy Do-Over”

Women have enjoyed the option of a “mommy makeover” for years. Now, it’s Dad’s turn to correct the effects of fatherhood on the face and body. Men that have developed under-eye bags, wrinkles and other signs of stress and sleep deprivation may choose from a range of effective treatment options, including Botox and dermal fillers. Or, liposuction can treat problematic “love handles” that cropped up when the baby arrived.

Techniques Tailored to the Male Aesthetic

Drs. Breslow and Farkas have worked with hundreds of patients — both men and women — and understand that each gender prefers a different aesthetic. To accommodate this, the doctors vary their approach according to the gender (and ideal aesthetic outcome) of the individual patient.

For example, male eyelid surgery patients generally do not want the wide, doe-eyed expression favored by women. Dr. Breslow and Dr. Farkas will use different techniques to produce a more appropriate surgical result. They appreciate that their male plastic surgery patients want to look better, yet retain a rugged or robust quality.

Our medical spa also offers a wide range of skin rejuvenation options, including chemical peels, Intense Pulsed Light treatment and skin tightening, which can enhance and prolong the effects of surgical procedures like eyelid lift. We welcome all men, regardless of their skincare needs, and will recommend nonsurgical solutions as we see fit.
