Women aren’t alone in their pursuit to look their best. About 1.3 million men underwent cosmetic procedures in 2019. These procedures included everything from surgical fat reduction to nose surgery to cosmetic injectables.
At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, we believe men deserve to look their best and to feel confident and sure of themselves when they look in the mirror.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Yaqub Baraki, M.D provides expert surgical and nonsurgical procedures to men and women in the Leesburg/Ashburn, Virginia area. Here’s what he says cosmetic surgery can do for men.
Men looking for a more toned physique and a contoured frame benefit from a variety of cosmetic services.
This completely noninvasive procedure uses laser energy to help you lose stubborn fat and show off a slimmer, more contoured body in just 6-12 weeks. WarmSculpting with SculpSure involves no downtime and no surgery.
Liposuction uses a cannula (small tube) to suction out unwanted body fat from areas that just won’t respond to diet and exercise. At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, men can benefit from laser liposuction, which literally melts fat in areas like your love handles and simultaneously tightens your skin.
Gynecomastia is a condition in men and teen boys in which the chest looks overdeveloped. Liposuction can effectively smooth your chest and, in some cases, surgical intervention can remove excess tissue. With gynecomastia procedures, you can feel confident in slim-fitting shirts, and next time, you take off your shirt at the pool or in the gym.
A man who’s unhappy with his look doesn’t have to just accept that he has a little “character.” Dr. Baraki suggests the following:
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, reforms your nose’s shape and/or size. If you have a bothersome bump on the bridge or want to reshape the tip, Dr. Baraki can help. Your nose is front and center, so a change to it can make a big improvement to your profile. As a bonus, nose surgery can also help if you have breathing problems because of the shape of your nose.
The signs of aging can cause deep creases and sagging in the jowls and chin. A facelift raises lax skin and restores a youthful bright appearance. Take years off your look with this surgical procedure.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a way to open up droopy, “puffy” looking eyes. Aging affects the delicate skin on your eyelids, so they sag. You look aged as a result, plus the excess skin can interfere with your vision.
Hair transplantation using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method restores your head of hair without stitches or scarring. You don’t need to take time off after your procedure, plus you’ll experience little to no discomfort. The procedure removes individual groupings of one to four hair follicles and replants them in the areas of your scalp needing coverage. This transplanted hair grows naturally to restore your full locks.
Cosmetic injectables like Botox® and dermal fillers combat the signs of aging to provide men a youthful look. Botox is effective on lines around the eyes and furrows in the brows, while dermal fillers can restore lost volume due to reduced fat and muscle under the skin of your cheeks and chin. If you have acne scars or other scarring, dermal fillers can help fill them in, too.
