botox before and after
1 / 13

Botox

More men get Botox than any other procedure. It’s injected into your face and neck to treat lines. The goal is to make your skin look smoother and more refreshed. Botox is often used to soften crow's feet, forehead creases, and band lines in the neck. It also may help with migraines, heavy sweating, and muscle spasms in your neck and around your eyes.

laer hair removal
2 / 13

Laser Hair Removal

Say goodbye to a furry back or chest. This method passes laser or light beams through your skin to damage hair follicles. Strands usually grow back finer and sometimes lighter. The more treatments you have, usually the less you'll see. Light-skinned patients with dark hair often get the best results. Lasers can be used nearly everywhere, including underarms and legs.

microdermabrasion
3 / 13

Microdermabrasion

This "power peel" gently sands your skin. It's used to lighten age spots and wrinkles, acne scars, fine lines, and other skin issues. It works by spraying tiny crystals on the skin to remove the flaking, uneven outer layer. Your skin may be slightly pink after a treatment. You may notice a difference right away, but you'll likely need a few sessions to really see a big change.

soft fillers before and after
4 / 13

Soft Tissue Fillers

As you age, your face loses some of the fat, bone, and muscle layers under your skin. Wrinkles are easier to see when you no longer have that fullness. Your doctor can inject one of many types of fillers into your skin to plump it back up. These include collagen, hyaluronic acid, and synthetic products. They can also make scars look better. You should see results right away with most fillers.

chemical peel
5 / 13

Chemical Peel

This treatment uses a chemical solution to remove damaged outer layers of skin. It should help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It may also be able to reduce age spots, scars, and blotches. Peels can be light, medium, or deep depending on how many layers of skin they take off. They’re most often used on the face, but can also be applied to any area with sun damage, like your neck and hands.

6 / 13

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Also known as a laser peel, this is a newer plastic surgery technique. A surgeon removes damaged skin one layer at a time with a targeted laser. It's used to treat fine lines or wrinkles, acne scars, birthmarks, and brown spots. Laser peels are sometimes used together with facelifts or eyelifts.

rhinoplasty before and after
7 / 13

Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty changes your nose's size, shape, or both. It can get rid of bumps in the middle or a reshape the tip. The surgery can also make a nose straighter or smaller. It can help you breathe better if there’s a problem with the structure of your nose. It can take as long as a year for swelling to go down, but the changes in how you look are often dramatic.

blepharoplasty
8 / 13

Eyelid Surgery

Signs of aging often show up around your eyes long before you spot them in other places on your body. As skin ages, it can sag, causing your eyelids to look droopy. This "lift" removes extra skin around the upper or lower lid, or both. It also gets rid of extra fat that can cause puffy areas under your eyes.

spider veins
9 / 13

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins

These small red, blue, or purple veins lie just under your skin. Though you might have them other places, they appear most often on the legs. Laser treatment heats them up and destroys them. It works best on small blood vessels. Sometimes this method is used together with a process called sclerotherapy, where doctors inject a chemical solution into the veins, making them collapse.

10 / 13

breast reduction before and after
11 / 13

Breast Reduction

Sometimes genetics, obesity, or certain meds cause enlarged breasts in men. Surgery can remove the extra fat and tissue to make a flatter, firmer chest. Sometimes liposuction can get the job done. Results usually last unless you gain a lot of weight or take certain medicines.

facelift before and after
12 / 13

Facelift

This surgery eases signs of aging in your face and neck. It tightens sagging skin and smooths deep folds. It treats deep creases and loose skin that may cause jowls or a double chin. About 1 in 10 people who get facelifts are men. There are different types, including a "mini" facelift. It often takes months for swelling to fully go down from any “lift” procedure.

hair transplant plugs
13 / 13

Hair Transplant

This process can add hair to a bald spot or areas that are thinning. First a surgeon takes small sections of strands, usually from the back of your head. Then he places them into the balding areas. It may take a few sessions and a few months for your hair to look fuller.
