A new trend has replaced former facial plastic surgeries performed on men: a natural, more masculine look has taken the place of obvious or overdone work. Small facial features are associated with a feminine look. Increasingly, however, men are seeking to enhance their prominent facial structures.
Gone are the days where men received a rhinoplasty that resulted in a much smaller nose. Now, many facial plastic surgeons are finding that male patients favor minor changes to their larger noses and elect to undergo a chin augmentation procedure simultaneously. Surgeons may even leave minor imperfections of the nose that increase character in the face, such as only shaving off some of a hump or leaving ethnic characteristics entirely undisturbed.
Another strong feature that is emphasized is the jaw line which can be addressed through a surgical chin augmentation using an implant or a more temporary fix with the use of dermal injections, creating enhancement that can contribute to a stronger jaw. There are also maxillofacial surgeries available to reposition the jaw. If a patient feels that the area below the jaw should be treated in lieu of the jaw, liposuction can be performed to refine the neck and jaw.
An additional way men can retain their strong features is through careful and minimal corrections to the face. Though a man may be interested in cosmetic dermal injections, the materials are carefully dispensed to prevent rounded and feminine curvature. Features such as the lips and cheeks are treated with a minimal amount of injectable fillers.
Surgical tools and techniques have been refined to allow for the creation of more minor changes that result in discreet surgeries. Micro-cannulas are used for facial and neck liposuction procedures, while endoscopic techniques may be used for face lifts and brow lifts. Lasers and other non-surgical procedures may be performed rather than plastic surgeries or alongside them for the best results.
Men are also visiting plastic surgeons at younger ages, such as their mid-thirties, to correct minor concerns and to learn how to prevent future imperfections. Without the distraction of acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and fine lines, clear and bright skin can reveal the attractive bone structures of the face. A great solution is a chemical peel, which can vary in strength to reveal smoother, more youthful skin.
