Most Common Aesthetic Procedures for Men

You’re really not looking forward to wearing your pants waist high or developing a “corporation.” And these days, who can afford to get out of shape as you get older, or neglect your appearance at any age?

Between the ever-changing job market, the skyrocketing divorce rate, and competition from bio-hackers and other bros who keep raising the bar on performance and appearance, more men than ever are opting for surgical procedures to help them look their best. Sometimes referred to as “Daddy Do-Overs,” procedures that fix face and body simultaneously let dads (and non-dads) save downtime and cash.

Theodore Diktaban, MD, FACS, has been an expert, board-certified plastic surgeon on New York City’s Upper East Side for more than 35 years. He helps both men and women make the changes they need to feel better about themselves. Following are the six most popular components of a Daddy Do-Over, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery:

Rhinoplasty

More than 50,000 men in the U.S. underwent rhinoplasty in 2018. Reshaping an overly large or crooked nose makes your features look more harmonious and strengthens your profile. Many men who are troubled by what they think is a weak chin actually have a nose that extends too far outward, making their chin look recessed in comparison.

Dr. Diktaban is an expert at creating a more balanced-looking nose while maintaining the overall masculine qualities of your face. He also respects your ethnicity by creating changes that are flattering to your cultural heritage. He’s skilled at taking into account the difference in skin thickness and amount of cartilage among races when reshaping your nose. 

Eyelid lift 

Sagging eyelids make you look old and tired. Who wants that? Not the nearly 31,500 men who opted for upper blepharoplasty (also known as an eyelid lift) last year.

Eyelid lifts require great expertise to look natural and flattering. As part of your procedure, Dr. Diktaban removes both excess skin and excess fat. However, he always leaves just enough fat to keep your eyes looking youthful. 

He also makes sure never to overly tighten your eyelid skin. Eyelids that are too tight may not function properly and are also feminizing. Be sure your plastic surgeon is skilled in rejuvenating male eyelids to get the best result.

Liposuction

If you’re ready to lose excess fat that’s not responding to exercise or diet, you might want to consider liposuction. Almost 30,000 men last year decided to finish off their physiques with permanent fat removal.

Dr. Diktaban performs traditional tumescent liposculpture, plus SmartLipo and nonsurgical body-contouring with SculpSure®. SmartLipo uses heat to melt the fat so that it’s easier to remove. SculpSure uses heat to disrupt the function of fat cells so that they disintegrate and are eventually excreted by your body.

All liposuction techniques can remove excess fat from your trunk, thighs, arms, and chin. You may want to treat several areas at once.

Breast reduction

If you have overly large male breasts, you may have spent years hiding them in baggy shirts and avoiding days at the beach or gym. Close to 25,000 men last year decided to put large breasts in their past with gynecomastia, breast-reduction surgery.

During breast reduction, Dr. Diktaban hides the scars around your nipples or underneath the creases of your breasts. He removes excess fat with liposuction, then excises excess breast tissue and skin. Depending on your needs, he may also position your nipples for the most natural look.

Hair transplantation

Almost 17,000 men last year decided they’d had it with comb-overs and toupees. Hair transplantation replaces defective follicles on your scalp with healthy new follicles so you can grow hair again. 

Facelift

In 2018, about 12,000 men decided to turn back the hands of time by lifting their faces with surgery. Because men’s skin is thicker and heavier, it’s essential to work with a plastic surgeon who has experience lifting the underlying muscle and skin in two directions at once and fastening them securely to minimize sagging in the future.

Male facelifts also pose other challenges that require expertise and experience. Dr. Diktaban always considers the placement of your beard and sideburns when creating a male facelift. He never overtightens your face, which would make it look unnatural and feminine.
