Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
A recent article in Details Magazine highlights the rise of male facial plastic surgery and describes which cosmetic procedures are popular among men who are seeking a surgical way to enhance their appearance. It used to be considered taboo for men to undergo plastic surgery, but now the statistics show that it’s not just women who are concerned with fighting the signs of aging and enhancing their appearance. Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the Center for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills has performed many plastic surgery procedures for men over the years.
“Just like women, men want to look younger and feel better about themselves. In our society, it’s becoming more common for men to seek out a plastic surgeon to help them achieve their aesthetic goals,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
According to Details Magazine, the trend in male cosmetic surgery is focused on a more rugged, masculine profile which is in stark contrast to the dainty, conventionally beautiful look that was previously on trend. Men are accepting their strong, bold facial features instead of trying to cover them up completely. Whereas men with larger noses may have previously opted for a complete rhinoplasty procedure, these men are now getting chin augmentations in order to balance out their nose. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chin implant surgery among men has increased recently by 71 percent! In addition, men are also seeking out neck lifts in order to create a strong, prominent jaw line, which contributes to an overall younger, healthier appearance. Men as young as their thirties are even receiving Ultherapy treatments, a non-surgical procedure that tightens loose skin using ultrasound waves.
“Men are often looking for a way to reduce the appearance of loose, sagging facial skin and create the appearance of a more defined jaw line. Rhinoplasty is still one of the most common plastic surgical procedures in men; however, men desire stronger bridges and a more natural tip than before,” explained Dr. Azizzadeh.
At the Center for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, cosmetic surgery specialist Dr. Azizzadeh takes careful consideration when planning surgical treatments for men. Most men are determined to achieve a natural look that is not overdone or dramatic. Dr. Azizzadeh takes special care to ensure that the results of male facial plastic surgery are not overly feminized and that the surgical procedure is appropriate for the patient’s age, ethnicity, and overall aesthetic.
“Although men and women seek out many of the same cosmetic surgery procedures, it is important to understand the way that men and women age differently and the diverse needs between the two genders,” adds Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained neck lift expert and a recognized Top Doctor by the US News & World Report. He completed a fellowship in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Harvard Medical School, and is the author of five bestselling books, including Master Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation and Beverly Hills Beauty Secrets. Dr. Azizzadeh is also the director of the USC Facial Plastic Fellowship Program, and the director of the world renowned Cedars-Sinai Advances in Multispecialty Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Symposium. Dr. Azizzadeh has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show for his expertise in facial plastic surgery, as well as in People Magazine, NY Times, LA Times, and numerous other major media outlets.
