Attention fellas: Plastic surgery isn’t just for the ladies anymore. In fact, it hasn’t been for a while but male-centric options are just now beginning to go mainstream. While male-focused procedures may not make the headlines as frequently, they are certainly available if you feel like it’s time for some sprucing up. There is a suite of procedures that can stand alone or be paired together for a dynamic transformation; these range from the superficial (chemical peels) to surgery.
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness (“double chin”). When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. A treatment plan is customized by Dr. Baroody to each patients’ aesthetic goals for an improved profile. Once the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.
Botox and Fillers
Botox relaxes muscles of the face which in turn reduce or eliminate the severity of the overlying skin wrinkles. Botox does nothing to the actual skin, but by decreasing the activity of the muscle, the skin becomes smooth.Juvederm Dermal Filler is a smooth gel filler used to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. The areas that may improve with injectable fillers include the cheeks, creases from the nose to the corners of the mouth (“laugh lines”), lines running from the corners of the mouth (“marionette lines”), and to better define the jaw line.Juvederm Voluma XC has recently been FDA approved to add volume to the cheeks in those ages 21 and older. As we age, the soft tissues of the cheeks lessen and our cheek bones resorb. By restoring volume to the cheeks, we are able to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Skin on your face, neck and hands create a first impression. While men can hide behind a 5 o’clock shadow, that doesn’t mean that the quality of your skin should be neglected. Dead skin builds up, creating a dull, rough surface and needs to be removed. Chemical peels are offered in a variety of strengths and formulas catered to your face’s needs at the time. It reverses sun damage, balances uneven skin tones, and reduces wrinkles. The variation of the chemical peel can be increased with each session.
When diet and exercise leave resistant pockets of fat, liposuction can surgically remove them from areas such as the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, pecs, back, arms and neck.
