The benefits of plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancement are becoming more apparent to men. More men are taking advantage of the range of cosmetic procedures that can help them re-contour their bodies and enhance their faces. These changes can give men more confidence on the job and in the social setting. Jamie Moenster offers treatments designed to help men achieve a more sculpted abdomen, diminish excess fat or re-contour the chest to reduce the effects of gynecomastia. With male plastic surgery procedures, a younger looking you is within reach.
One of the most common area of concern for men is the abdomen. This is because men generally store most of their fat around the waist. Genetics may also play a big role in the appearance of the male abdomen. Through liposuction, Dr. Moenster can give the abdomen a more athletic appearance. She accomplishes this by strategically removing fat from the abdomen, waist, and love handles.
By suctioning fat from the individual abdominal muscles, she can reveal a more pleasing abdominal contour.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia is a condition of over developed or enlarged breasts in men. It can occur at any age and can be hereditary, caused by the use of certain medications or the result of hormonal changes and obesity. While the condition generally doesn’t signify a serious health threat, it can have devastating effects on a man’s self-esteem and can cause emotional embarrassment, social embarrassment as well as impair self-confidence.
Plastic surgery offers a safe and highly effective solution for male breast reduction surgery.
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. Rhinoplasty can change the size of the nose to balance the face, the width of the nose at the bridge, the profile of the nose to remove any humps or depressions, and even the tip of the nose. Many individuals seeking rhinoplasty desire a more symmetrical nose, but it is important to keep in mind that everyone’s face is asymmetric to some degree.
Men always want to put their best face forward. Skin care, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing and IPL can help transform pigmentation, red spots, blemishes and fine wrinkles. In addition, Botox and Juvederm can help restore a youthful appearance.
The providers at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona work individually with their male patients to specifically design the best program to work most efficiently on their skin. ZO Skin Health Systems works on all skin types.
As people age, the effects of gravity, stress and exposure to the sun can be seen in their faces. The jowls sag, deep creases form between the nose and mouth, and fat deposits appear around the neck. The presence of these issues can make a person look and feel much older than they actually are. A facelift or neck lift surgery improves the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. Occasionally there is one area that seems to be more concerning to a patient than another. Things like the “turkey neck”, “turkey gobbler”, the jowls of the lower face, or sagging of the mid face may prompt a patient to come in.
Typically the face and neck can be treated as a single unit or it can be treated as two separate areas. Your plastic surgeon can determine which procedure is best for you.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can be used to improve the appearance of both upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can help restore a more youthful look and can improve functional problems you may be having with your eyelids. Blepharoplasty procedures remove the excess skin of the eyelid as well as the herniated fat pads from under the lids. In doing this, you reduce both the skin and heaviness of the eyelids.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion. Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have areas with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.
Liposuction physically removes the excess fat deposits in the problem areas resulting in a more balanced look. Liposuction does not treat cellulite or obesity.
Skin of the face and neck lose elasticity as one ages. Underlying muscles lose tone and overall volume decreases. Aging of the neck is magnified by sun exposure, weight gain or loss, gravity, and genetics. A neck lift helps improve the most visible signs of aging through removing and redistributing excess fatty deposits, tightening underlying muscles, and removing sagging skin. Neck lift surgery is often complemented with other procedures to restore volume and address cosmetic issues throughout the neck structures.
Botox is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. Millions of men and women worldwide, benefit from Botox Cosmetic treatments every year. We offer Botox treatments at both of our Arizona locations including Tucson and Sierra Vista.
Botox was the first FDA approved prescription product that improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona performs a wide variety of chemical peels including glycolic acid, TCA and Jessner acid peels of differing strengths. A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. These chemical peels, that are performed by one of our providers, exfoliate the top layer of the skin and encourage skin renewal to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, acne and texture.
Chemical peels are non-invasive and usually require minimal recovery time.
Juvederm Vollure XC is an FDA-approved dermal filler injection that addresses the deep folds that stretch from the nose to the corners of the mouth (also known as nasolabial folds). These folds can appear as we get older, as loss of skin elasticity and repeated facial movements can create these deep lines. Juvederm Vollure addresses these folds by using a thick hyaluronic acid to “plump” up the depressions.
Juvederm benefits include added volume and definition of facial features while maintaining a natural and enhanced appearance.
