Male Surgery


Most people think of the typical plastic surgery patient as a woman, but Dr. Mark E. Richards has found that his image-enhancing procedures have become more and more popular with men. The Ageless Impressions – Plastic Surgery Institute is proud to offer facelift, liposuction, and a host of other plastic surgery procedures to male patients from around the country and the world. These options can eliminate signs of aging, optimize the body’s shape, and help men develop and project an ideal, masculine self-image. Depending on the patient’s age and goals, different sets of procedures may be best suited to remake the body. Consider whether any of them can help you; after all, it’s not just women who deserve to look great as they mature.

Options for Young Men

Since men in their 20’s and 30’s generally have an easier time maintaining their weight and musculature, they tend to choose procedures that address more enduring features of the body when they opt for enhancement with plastic surgery. Rhinoplasty, which can change the shape of the nose in a number of different ways, is an especially popular choice. Bringing the nose into harmony with the rest of the figure that you’ve worked so hard to achieve can be the perfect way to complete the process of physical transformation.

Liposuction for the neck and chin is also popular among younger men. Even when significant amounts of fat are lost from the abdomen and the hips, pockets of excess tissue can remain stubbornly in place in various parts of the body. Fortunately, Dr. Mark E. Richards’s practice offers liposuction with the VASER® LipoSelection® system. This technology allows our surgeon to remove small amounts of fat from delicate areas with precision, creating an attractive and finely sculpted result. Removing just a little bit of fat from a man’s neck and chin, when done properly, can leave the face with a distinctly more defined and masculine appearance.

Middle-Aged Men

As age takes its toll, the body undergoes changes that working out can’t fix as easily or, in some cases, at all. That is why men in their 40’s and 50’s frequently use plastic surgery to combat fat buildup and facial skin deterioration. Liposuction can be utilized to sculpt the abdomen and love handles back into their tight, youthful forms, restoring the classic masculine “V” shape to the torso. In fact, Dr. Richards is an expert at performing high-volume liposuction procedures safely by means of the VASER® LipoSelection® system.

For the face, cheek lift and eye lift surgeries are popular among middle-aged men. The cumulative effects of gravity can cause the soft features of the face to sag downwards over time. A cheek lift, which can also be called a mid facelift, corrects this problem in the cheeks by pulling the natural fat pads that reside there back into the higher spots that they once occupied. Eyelid surgery for bags below the eyes works by a similar principle. For the upper eyelids, an eye lift tightens the skin and eliminates droopiness. Both of these procedures are relatively easy to recover from, which makes the dramatic changes they can produce all the more worth it.

Options for Senior Men

Turning 60 doesn’t mean that you have to give up on looking your best. Keeping the skin of the face in good condition can allow a man to age with grace and maintain a fresh, vibrant outer appearance that matches his inner attitude. Many men in their 60’s and 70’s thus choose to undergo neck lift and facelift surgeries at Ageless Impressions Plastic Surgery Institute. A facelift can smooth and tighten the skin of the lower face, making it once again appear young and attractive. A neck lift can do the same for the skin of the neck; moreover, this treatment also helps restore strength and definition to the appearance of the jaw. As an expert facelift surgeon, Dr. Richards is extremely well-equipped to perform these procedures on men who come to him from all parts of the nation and the globe.

Enhancements to Benefit Men of All Ages

Of course, the descriptions above are only generalizations; men in all different stages of life may have widely varying goals for their bodies and problems to overcome in reaching them. Dr. Richards is adept at performing an extraordinarily broad range of plastic surgery procedures and is more than happy to bring his skills to bear on any portion of the body that a patient would like to improve.
