BOTOX® & Fillers
BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers are well-known for their ability to restore a youthful look and image, smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plump the lips and create a smooth, supple facial appearance. The powerful effects of these injectables aren’t limited to the benefits they can have for women’s appearance. On the contrary, men can make use of BOTOX® and fillers in order to enhance an athletic, chiseled appearance and enhance the handsomeness of your face.
When you come in for a consultation at Cold Spring Plastic Surgery, your surgeon will use your own photographs as well as computer-generated images and before-and-after pictures to help create a plan for facial rejuvenation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is best-known for its ability to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help to reduce the visibility of facial aging. In fact, it is the only FDA-approved procedure to provide temporary relief for frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. Rather than presenting a shocked or unnatural look, BOTOX® Cosmetic can help you look more relaxed and youthful, helping to enhance your confidence in the workplace or while out on a date.
Dermal fillers can also help you to rejuvenate your look and enhance your masculine features. These injectable fillers help to restore lost volume and fullness to the skin. Many men wish to have a stronger, more pronounced chin; dermal fillers can help you to achieve this aesthetic goal without surgery. In addition, dermal fillers can help to reduce or eliminate bags under the eyes, enhance your cheeks or improve the symmetry of your nose.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which men have excess or enlarged tissue in the upper chest area which can sometimes resemble female breasts. In some cases, gynecomastia can be caused by obesity, drug side effects or hormones; it can also be genetic. While gynecomastia is natural, many men feel insecure about their appearance and may avoid swimming or even sexual intimacy while naked. Even after significant weight loss, the appearance of gynecomastia can remain. However, men don’t simply have to live with gynecomastia; the experienced Suffolk County plastic surgeons at Cold Spring Plastic Surgery can perform procedures to remove the excess tissue and help you show off your new, flat chest.
Gynecomastia surgery is also known as male breast reduction. If the enlarged tissue in this area does not go away through exercise and eating healthy, surgery can help you achieve the results you desire. It is best suited for adults whose weight is relatively stable and who have clear expectations for the outcomes of the procedure. When you come in for a consultation at Cold Spring Plastic Surgery, your surgery will go over your health situation to determine the cause of your gynecomastia and help to make a plan for your course of treatment.
The surgery itself will take several hours and could take place under general anesthesia or IV sedation, depending on your surgeon’s advice. In some cases, where there is simply excess fat in the chest area, liposuction may be the main technique used to remove the extra tissue. The fat will be removed through a small tube inserted through tiny incisions in the chest area. For people with more extensive gynecomastia, an excision technique can also be used. In this case, your surgeon will make incisions to remove excess tissue and reposition the nipple to present a masculine, natural appearance. The two techniques can also be combined for effective, powerful results.
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures chosen by men. This targeted technique helps you to eliminate stubborn pockets of excess fat and sculpt the shape of your body. At Cold Spring Plastic Surgery, our experienced Long Island plastic surgeons can help you shape your trim, athletic body through the use of liposuction.
For many, despite diet, exercise and hard work, certain pockets of stubborn fat remain in the abdomen, waist, chin, neck or chest. Through liposuction, men can restore a more fit, youthful look and enhance their pride in their bodies.
Liposuction uses a small, thin tube called a cannula to remove unwanted fat. The tube is attached to a liposuction machine before being inserted through tiny incisions directly into the layer of fat beneath the skin. Using a tumescent fluid, the cannula is manipulated to target and erase those unwanted deposits of fat. While liposuction cannot be used to treat obesity, it can be an excellent choice for men who want to address troubling fatty deposits and enhance the sculpted appearance of their physique.
Liposuction can be a great choice for adult men of any age or weight who want to eliminate stubborn fat that does not go away with diet or exercise. For best results, liposuction is most effective when performed on men who are within 30 percent of their desired body weight.
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
For many men, the weight loss journey has been long and arduous. After you’ve achieved your goals and you can see the results of all of your work on the scale and in the gym, you want to show off your new body on the beach and in the bedroom. However, despite all of the powerful effects of diet and weight loss, many men who have had significant weight loss may also struggle with remaining loose skin or persistent deposits of fat. These issues can inhibit confidence and make you less willing to expose your body in the gym or even in a more intimate situation. Body contouring after weight loss is designed to help you achieve a fit, natural look that lets you show off everything you’ve achieved.
At Cold Spring Plastic Surgery, our experienced Long Island plastic surgeons can work with you to make a body contouring plan that will help you achieve your goals. Whether you’ve had bariatric surgery or achieved your weight loss through other lifestyle changes, body contouring procedures can help you show your true shape to the world and boost your pride in your body image. These procedures can also help to mitigate the natural changes to the body that accompany aging as well as weight fluctuations.
Body contouring surgery can remove sagging skin and excess fat while helping to restore the tone of your abdominal muscles. There are a number of body contouring procedures that can be combined in order to achieve an individualized outcome that meets your goals.
Some of the procedures that can be part of your body contouring process include:
- Chest lifts
- Thigh and buttock lifts
- Overall lower body lifts
- Arm lifts
