Men go through a considerably different facial aging process than women, and may experience sagging skin, droopy eyelids, and furrows on the forehead during the midlife stages. A customized face lift such as a threadlift and conventional facelift surgery can help remove excess facial tissue and create a tightened, toned and more youthful look.

Skin tightening procedures such as Thermage and Titan can help manage sagging skin and increase collagen production – an essential component of healthy, youthful-looking skin.

What is Eyelid Surgery for Men?  

Droopy eyelids can make you look excessively tired, stressed, or even bored. Eyelid surgery can reshape the upper eye area and tighten and tone the skin to draw more attention to the eyes. This can be a valuable treatment at any age, and can be combined with other skin tightening and facial rejuvenation procedures for a complete makeover.  

What are IP Laser Treatments for Men?  

Laser skin resurfacing technologies have become more precise and effective at removing fine lines and age spots, reducing skin pigmentation and creating an even skin texture. Men can benefit from a series of laser skin resurfacing treatments that provide long-lasting results – beyond a facial or chemical peel – and can slowly restore the skin to a more youthful appearance.  

How does Male Breast Reduction Treatments Work?

Improving the contours of the chest and pectoral region is possible without a rigorous workout routine; over 20,000 men pursued male breast reduction treatments in 2007, and these can be combined with liposuction and body contouring procedures for a complete upper body makeover. Male breast reduction procedures can permanently reduce the size of the breasts for a flatter, firmer appearance.  

From liposuction to injectable fillers, cosmetic surgery offers several ways men can achieve a more youthful, attractive appearance.
