Both men and women share similar cosmetic concerns, whether it be aging skin, unwanted fat or variations in breast size. However, many of the cosmetic procedures that work to improve the appearance seem to be geared more so toward women when, in fact, there are plenty of men who wish to improve their personal aesthetic as well.
Dr. Batra understands that maintaining a youthful and toned appearance is a priority for his male patients and performs both surgical and nonsurgical treatments so that they can choose the solution that’s right for them and feel confident about the way they look. There are plenty of treatment options available that can improve your appearance, but Dr. Batra recommends a few in particular.
- Facial Rejuvenation with Injectable Treatment
Not everyone wants to undergo plastic surgery to achieve the look they’re after, which is why nonsurgical injectable treatments are available and widely popular. Dr. Batra offers BOTOX® and Restylane®, Radiesse® and Juvederm® dermal fillers to help eliminate muscle-responsive wrinkles and restore volume to certain areas of the face. Anti-wrinkle injections are ideal for those patients who desire more subtle enhancements and are willing to receive touch-up injections over time. They are a great way to customize your aesthetic treatment and improve the quality of your skin without looking as through you have had work done.
- Body Contouring
As you continue to age, it becomes more and more difficult to lose body fat, which leads to fatty deposits hanging around certain areas and creating many cosmetic concerns. Oftentimes, the men who consult with Dr. Batra are in great shape, but have a hard time eliminating fat in the abdominal, breast and love handle regions through diet and exercise. Body contouring procedures through liposuction can reduce the amount of fat present in these areas and create a more toned appearance. Other areas that can be treated include the chin, neck, cheeks, inner and outer thighs, ankles and neck.
- Male Breast Reduction
Excess fat can also be located in the breasts, which can affect self-confidence and masculinity. Officially termed gynecomastia, enlarged male breast tissue appears during adolescence and can remain throughout adulthood unless it is treated. The condition often leads to teenage boys being teased for their appearance, which has the potential to interfere with other aspects of their lives. Dr. Batra performs male breast reduction as a way to sculpt a flatter chest so that you can adopt a more masculine appearance. Using fine-gauge liposuction and the excision of excess tissues, the chest can be made to look more aesthetically appealing and help improve your self-image.
The goal of any cosmetic procedure, whether it is surgical or nonsurgical, is to help you feel better about your appearance, which will carry through into your everyday life.
