Facial plastic surgery is not just for women. There are an increasing number of men that are seeking plastic surgery to enhance their appearance. There are many procedures that can be tailored to provide men with cosmetic improvements that do not compromise the masculinity of their facial features. For some, cosmetic surgery can help them address a feature they wish to improve upon, such as a weak chin or a large hump on the nose. For others, cosmetic procedures can rejuvenate the appearance such as injectable fillers and wrinkle erasing treatments.
It is no surprise that just like women, men want to look refreshed and feel confident in their appearance too. For men, cosmetic surgery can not only make them look younger and more attractive, but has been shown in several studies to make them more competitive in the workplace.
The number one concern that men share with Dr. Somenek is that they don’t want to appear feminized or have the “done” look. It is important that you go to a surgeon that understands the features and nuances of the male face. Dr. Somenek understands the unique approach and techniques in facial plastic surgery that will bring men their ideal results while still preserving the masculine features that are considered attractive. As a specialist in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Somenek makes it his top priority to maintain a natural look on a male that preserves masculinity and exudes confidence. The “less is more” approach can make a world of difference on a male face by enhancing the natural contours with a conservative approach.
According to the American Association of Facial Plastic Surgery (AAFPRS), the most common cosmetic procedures that their members performed on male patients in 2010 were Botox, rhinoplasty, and hyaluronic acid injections like Restylane and Juvederm. Other common procedures included hair transplant surgery, blepharoplasty, scar revision, facelift surgery, and skin resurfacing techniques like chemical peels and laser treatments.
Many nonsurgical treatments exist to soften the facial features and refresh the male face. Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport are extremely effective wrinkle reducing treatments. Injectable fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can restore volume deficiencies that develop with aging throughout the face. Dr. Somenek is an expert injector that trains physicians around the country on proper injection technique and restoring the appropriate facial proportions in male patients. Additionally, skin resurfacing procedures such as chemical peels and lasers can remove unwanted dark spots and sun damage that accumulate over the years.
Aside from the vast array of nonsurgical treatments that are available, there are several surgical options in DC that can rejuvenate the male face. By tailoring procedures such as rhinoplasty (reshaping of the nose), blepharoplasty (upper and lower eyelid lifts), and facelifts for men, we can correct the common concerns of aging and give men a more revitalized, defined, and handsome look. Dr. Somenek uses the conservative approach for all surgical procedures on a male face. The goal is to create a refreshed look without showing any signs that something was done. Dr. Somenek believes that the best compliment to get is that you “look well rested” and he ensures that this is achieved with all of his male patients.
With improving facial rejuvenation techniques, males are now opting for surgical procedures like face and neck lifts, eyelid surgery, and browlift. Eyelid surgery can improve the appearance of heavy or sagging eyelids while preserving the distinguishing fine lines around the eyes to contribute to a natural appearance. A facelift combined with liposuction to the neck can improve the contours and strengthen the jawline, a frequently associated feature of confidence and masculinity. Occasionally this is combined with a chin augmentation to further strengthen the lower third of the face.
As with all patients, Dr. Somenek stresses a good skin regimen and healthy lifestyle to compliment any nonsurgical or surgical treatment. He believes that this will truly optimize, and in some cases, prolong the effect of many treatments.
