Male Cosmetic Treatments


Up until recently, there has been an undeniable stigma surrounding cosmetic treatments for men. Although women have been getting them for decades, men have been late to the party. Fortunately, that trend is changing. A growing number of men are seeking out treatments to help them appear more youthful and vital, helping them both at work and in relationships.

If you are a man looking to improve your appearance, here are some popular cosmetic treatments to consider:


If you want significant results without the need for surgery, you should consider injectables. Products like dermal fillers and Botox can help turn back the clock on aging skin. Even better, they require little to no downtime.


Most fillers contain something called hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance that declines in both quality and quantity as you grow older. Injected hyaluronic acid will help to rehydrate your skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles. You should notice immediate results that can last for up to a year or longer, depending on the product.


By now, most of us have heard of Botox. This is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, which has been safely prepared in a laboratory. When injected, Botox helps smooth out some types of wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. It works by limiting the activity of these muscles so that the deep wrinkles on the surface become much less prominent.

Like dermal fillers, Botox will eventually wear off, and you would require follow-up treatments at that point to maintain your results.


For some men, the first significant sign of facial aging is drooping eyelids. Blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia. It works by removing the excess tissue from the eyelids, helping you appear younger and more alert.

Following a blepharoplasty, you should be able to return to work and normal activities within two weeks.


Are you bothered by stubborn fat that simply won’t budge, no matter how much you diet or exercise? This type of fat can be removed using liposuction performed at an outpatient facility.

It is important to recognize that liposuction is not meant as a substitute for proper diet and exercise.


The abdominoplasty is somewhat similar to a liposuction procedure, but a bit less common. This is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help you regain the flat, toned midsection that is typically associated with youth and vitality.

The procedure involves the removal of some fatty tissue, as well as the trimming of excess skin that sags. It takes a few weeks to recover from an abdominoplasty, and after that, you can enjoy results lasting indefinitely.


Gynecomastia – the enlargement of breast tissue among males – is less commonly spoken about but nonetheless more prevalent than many know. Half of all males experience it at one point in their lives, whether it be due to the intake of steroids or medication like finasteride for hair loss. Many guys who develop gynecomastia end up believing that when they lose weight, their chest region would return to being proportional. Unfortunately, this type of breast growth can also include a mixture of both fat and glandular cells; something not responsive to the weight change. Male breast reductions are conducted in order to remove excess fat and glandular cells alike, leading toward a smoother and better-defined chest region after surgery. Additionally, some may require a small amount of skin removal which leads to even firmer results.

Gynecomastia can also be treated with liposuction with Bodytite or surgery depending on the extent of the problem.
