Plastic Surgery for Men in Santa Barbara

There aren’t as many articles and blog posts about men having plastic surgery (versus women) but in the last 5 to 7 years, the number of men who have gotten plastic surgery has increased by more than 40%. Men may share less publicly about their plastic surgery experience, but the reality is that they are getting it done.

Most of the men I have seen are interested in plastic surgery for facial rejuvenation, body contouring, or the desire to enhance their appearance. Here are the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men in my Santa Barbara plastic surgery practice.

Facial Rejuvenation for Men
I have heard from many men that the workplace can be competitive. Looking more youthful, especially when interviewing for a job or going up for a promotion, often works in the candidates favor. These two surgeries can rejuvenate an appearance, without looking “done”:

  • Forehead Lift. Relaxation of the forehead tissue can result in a heaviness of the upper lids. This can make the person appear tired or unhappy. A Forehead lift repositions the forehead and brow upward to re-open the eyes, which often changes the appearance of the person to more approachable and happy. 
  • Eyelid Lift. Sagging skin, dark circles, and fat bulges around the eyes can make you appear older and tired. Eyelid surgery can correct these problems to give you a more rested and pleasant appearance.
Body Contouring for Men
Liposuction is an effective way to remove fat and improve body contouring (note that it is not a weight loss procedure). For men, abdominal liposuction can effectively treat the “love handles” and other areas that are tough to work off. 
Appearance Enhancement for Men
Some men are just interested in improving their facial appearance. Two of the most popular surgeries are:
  • Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery). This surgery can change the external shape of the nose. It can get rid of bumps or correct asymmetry. Nasal surgery can also be done to correct breathing function.
  • Chin Augmentation. A “weak” chin can create facial imbalance in relation to other features of the face. Chin augmentation can be done using a custom implant to create more balance with the features. If the issue is a prominent chin, it can be reduced by removing some bone or soft tissue. 
I specialize in performing cosmetic surgeries that give a natural, rested, “non-operated” look. My clients – men and women – often say that after their surgery they receive many positive compliments on their appearance, without people guessing that they have had work “done”.
