CELEBRATING THE MEN IN OUR LIVES THIS FATHER’S DAYHome » Blog » 2019 » June
A lot of the procedures we offer at our practice are often associated with women. Yet, the reality is, our male patients benefit greatly from these procedures and the rate at which men are opting in is projected to continue growing. So, with Father’s Day just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to speak to all the amazing men in our lives and show them that they too deserve to look and feel like their best self. Here are some ways that we can help.
Aging, and the excess eyelid tissue that can occur as a result, doesn’t discriminate based on gender! Dr. Biesman treats a wide variety of both male and female patients who can benefit from a blepharoplasty: an eyelid surgery where sagging tissues are removed or repositioned to create a bright, more youthful look.
Often, there is a misconception that plastic surgery creates a noticeable or extreme alteration to one’s physical appearance, which can deter patients, especially males, from exploring these procedures. On the contrary, Dr. Biesman prides himself in finding ways to correct trouble areas in an effective, yet subtle way. A blepharoplasty surgery is performed using a fine incision hidden in the eyelid’s natural fold or inside of the eyelid to avoid visible scars.
Not only do these procedures create a more youthful appearance, they can also be life-changing in regards to overall vision improvement.
Another procedure our male patients frequently undergo is CoolSculpting®: a noninvasive form of body contouring designed to reduce fat layer thickness in a safe, effective way. It is ideal for patients with stubborn fat in the abdomen (belly), flanks (“love handles”), back or even under the chin. We’ve seen that women aren’t the only ones susceptible to the pressures from society to be slim and toned, thus men are frequently interested in this service as well. CoolSculpting® has been used for more than 10 years and is continuing to gain recognition among male patients, including press from Men’s Health and Men’s Journal. Is one of the safest and most predictable procedures performed today with over 9 million cycles having been performed worldwide to date.
ACNE SCAR TREATMENT
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. Even if you’ve moved past this stage of impact, chances are you could still be left with the scars. While products and makeup can sometimes help camouflage these trouble areas for women, we often see men being more bothered by their scars for this very reason.
Dr. Biesman has worked with acne scarring patients for more than 25 years, and can provide a treatment plan that’s customized and most effective for your needs. Using a variety of treatments, he combines everything from surgery to lasers and other medical procedures to treat each patient with the unique customization they require for optimal results. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution and results are typically seen over time and multiple visits.
Injectable drugs like Botox, Dysport and Kybella aren’t just for women anymore. In fact, Allure recently reported an increase in trends like “Brotox”. Dr. Biesman has long seen both males and female patients using these types of products and understands the intricate anatomical differences to properly treat each patient. While men generally have larger muscles and can often require larger doses of each product, their reason for wanting these treatments is almost always the same as their female counterparts: to look and feel like the best version of themselves.
Men looking to easily treat fine lines and wrinkles often do well with products like Botox, Dysport and newly released Jeuveau™ (#NEWTOX) which all temporarily soften those signs of aging. For those looking to rid unwanted fat beneath the chin, Kybella is a popular solution that Dr. Biesman frequently performs on male patients as a less invasive alternative to surgery.
Regardless of your gender or what cosmetic concerns you may have, Dr. Biesman is committed to helping all of his patients look and feel their best. No stigma. No judgement. Contact our office to book a consultation today.
