New year, new look: Tackling common problem spots with cosmetic surgery

5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Happy New Year! With endless parties and the Times Square ball drop, it’s no secret that New Yorkers do things big each Dec. 31. And why not? The new year is a fresh start for everyone who celebrates it. It’s a chance for changes, growth, and resolutions.

So what’s on your to-do list for 2017? Travel to a new country? Change jobs? Pick up a new hobby or drop a bad habit? If you’re wanting to enter the new year with a fresh start and a renewed sense of confidence, it might be time to make any cosmetic surgery appointments that you’ve been putting off. As the boom in male plastic surgeries continues, we regularly see the difference even a small procedure can make in the way a man feels about his body. Each of our patients unique — and we treat them accordingly. Patients range from male models and bodybuilders who seek tighter, toned features, to CEOs and worn-out fathers who want to reduce excess fat and age-revealing wrinkles. At the end of the day, the goal is to deliver to patients an updated body that matches the spirit and strength that they carry inside.

Still wondering if a procedure is right for you? Here are some common problem spots that men bring to us for treatment. If one or more of them is a concern of yours, consider your options for adjusting it.

Disproportionate or asymmetrical nose

Whether you were born with it and teased as a kid or sustained it as the result of an injury, a nose that’s oversized, humped, crooked, or otherwise abnormal can diminish your self-esteem. If yours make you uncomfortable, a open or closed rhinoplasty might be the perfect solution. Together, we can discuss the parts or your nose that you like and dislike, then form a plan to reshape it and remove any deviations.

Excess stubborn fat

Diet and exercise are great weight-loss strategies, but, especially as we age, they aren’t foolproof. Pockets of fat around the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, neck, and upper arms are all common among men despite efforts to lose them. If you’re frustrated by fat in these areas, liposuction is an option. There are several different methods surgeons use when performing liposuction, including tumescent liposuction, the super-wet technique, and ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), and we can work together to decide which method is best for your situation.

Facial wrinkles

Thanks to factors like sunshine, stress, and aging, wrinkles are an inevitable part of life. In a society that values youthful appearances, wrinkles can also be confidence killers. There are several classic options to combat wrinkles, like the always-popular Botox, but in recent years, injectible fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm have increased in popularity, likely due to the way that they add volume and structure to otherwise sinking facial features.
