7 Cosmetic Procedures Just for Men

Too often, men assume cosmetic procedures are only for women, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a manly makeover. Learn more about our cosmetic procedures designed just for men and schedule a consultation with Dr. Bajaj at Bajaj Plastic Surgery.
Cosmetic Procedures for Men
Dr. Bajaj specializes in a variety of male-specific cosmetic procedures, making sure the results enhance your natural, masculine appearance. We offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures just for men.
MiraDry is an FDA-approved, clinically proven method to permanently reduce underarm sweat. Hot summers in Oklahoma can cause unwanted perspiration. It’s the perfect time to treat excessive sweating and reduce odor. The MiraDry procedure delivers heat energy to target and treat sweat glands. Results are permanent, and minimal discomfort is common for a few days following the procedure.
Botox is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that can reduce common signs of aging, such as frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s-feet. It can also address certain physical irritations such as excessive sweating, muscle spasms, and headaches. Botox requires little to no downtime following the procedure, and you will notice results within four to eight days.
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that contours the lids and brows. This procedure can address ptosis (drooping of the upper lid) and lower eyelid bags. The goal of male eyelid surgery is to create a natural-looking, masculine appearance while avoiding overly excising the skin, which can feminize the eyes. Dr. Bajaj specializes in this male-specific procedure, giving men the opportunity to enhance and refresh their eyes without looking like they’ve had surgery. Recovery time can vary between patients, but some degree of swelling and bruising is normal following the procedure.
A neck lift can help diminish signs of aging by removing excess skin and fat from the neck. If you experience wrinkles or loose skin under the chin, a neck lift will tighten the underlying neck muscles to create a more youthful, masculine jawline. Following the procedure, bruising will be visible for the first few days, and swelling should dissipate within a few weeks. You should be able to resume light activity within one to two weeks, and should avoid straining the affected area for several days.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose and correct breathing problems caused by nasal proportions. People often choose rhinoplasty to correct a nasal bridge bump, excessively flared nostrils, nose injuries, or disproportionately large noses. Following surgery, you may experience bruising and discoloration for a week. Most patients can return to work within seven to 10 days, but you should avoid strenuous activities and contact sports for six weeks.
Gynecomastia is an enlargement or swelling of breast tissue in men. Roughly 65% of men between the ages of 27 and 92 experience gynecomastia to some degree. Male breast reduction surgery can correct gynecomastia by removing the excess tissue. In extreme cases, gynecomastia can cause the breasts to sag and the areolas to stretch. While this is not a serious condition, it can be a source of self-consciousness for men. Following the procedure, you can return to work within five to seven days, and you must wait two to three weeks before resuming strenuous activities.
The purpose of a male tummy tuck is to remove excess skin from the abdominal region while tightening the underlying muscles and skin, creating a firmer, more defined midsection. In a male tummy tuck, we focus less on the body’s curves and more on a flat and firm abdomen. During the procedure, we will make an incision just below the pant line, so it can easily be concealed by clothing. Following the procedure, you can resume daily activities within one to two weeks, but you will need to avoid strenuous activities for two to three weeks. It’s important to maintain a healthy weight following your procedure to ensure that results last.
