From Neckties to Neck Lifts
Posted on June 9, 2015 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Male Plastic Surgery
Are you struggling to come up with the perfect gift for your father or your husband for Father’s Day? Neckties, golf balls and coffee mugs are overdone. Why not think outside the box?
Dr. Carlos Chacon of Divino Plastic Surgery encourages you to treat the most important man in your life to cosmetic enhancement. This is not uncommon — in fact, requests for male plastic surgery tend to see an uptick around this time of year. Executives want to look more capable, dads want to look less tired and beachgoers want to look more masculine and toned.
In this post, Dr. Chacon suggests some popular treatment options for you to consider for your man.
Premature signs of aging are a real concern for many men. In some cases, a simple non-surgical treatment such as Botox injections, dermal fillers or laser skin resurfacing offers the desired wrinkle-reducing, skin plumping effects. These treatments can be conveniently scheduled during a lunch break from work.
For men that need more intensive treatment, facelift or neck lift will restore a smoother, firmer and more youthful facial appearance. Droopy or saggy eyelids can be treated with eyelid surgery. Rhinoplasty fixes a crooked nose or a nose that is out of proportion with the rest of the face.
Men enjoy being pampered, too! A facial is a nice way to nourish the skin while relaxing. Peels and microdermabrasion treatments are not as relaxing of an experience, but will slough off dull skin cells to reveal radiant skin underneath. The results are well worth it.
If your husband follows a healthy diet and exercises regularly, but still complains about excess body fat, liposuction or liposculpture can help. These fat reduction treatments are safe and effective. If he has lost a significant amount of weight and has leftover excess skin and fat deposits mostly around his midsection, tummy tuck is a better option. Male breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and fat for a more masculine-looking chest.
Guidelines for Gifting Cosmetic Treatment
Gifting cosmetic surgery or non-surgical treatment is a delicate decision. In general, you should only gift your father or husband cosmetic treatment if he has expressed the desire for it. In other words, if you think he would look better with Botox or laser skin resurfacing, hold off on the gift certificate. If he has mentioned wanting to look younger and more attractive through cosmetic treatment, proceed with purchase.
Also, keep in mind that surgical and non-surgical treatment is only performed on suitable candidates. Dr. Chacon will evaluate your husband or father on an individual basis to determine whether he is a qualified candidate.
