Our patient, a prominent attorney in his mid-50’s, Mitchell Katine who has argued before the United States Supreme Court, came to Dr. Franklin Rose looking for a more youthful appearance while still maintaining a natural look. He underwent facial and eyelid rejuvenation by Dr. Rose; and after a short interval away from work, Mr. Katine was able to return to his full responsibilities as a practicing attorney. Mr. Katine successfully won landmark legislation at the United States Supreme Court regarding LGBT rights.
“Male plastic surgery rates have significantly increased in recent years and the idea that plastic surgery procedures are just for women no longer applies,” says Dr. Franklin Rose. “Men are seeking to regain a more youthful look, improve their self-image and feel better about their appearance. It’s fortunate that we now have appropriate techniques specifically to address a man’s aging face to meet men’s desires and often exceed their expectations.”
Often we see men who seek a rhinoplasty following a sports injury or to improve breathing function. More and more, men are visiting the plastic surgeon desiring to improve specific problem areas of the aging face such as the neck, cheek and jowl areas. Plastic surgery procedures for men are becoming more common-place for males of all ages than ever!
Minimally-invasive procedures for men such as Botox and filler injections like Restylane and Juvederm along with traditional facelifts have greatly increased in demand as well. These popular procedures improve the appearance for those men who have wrinkles or frown lines that cause them to appear permanently tired or angry; minimally invasive techniques such as injectable treatments do not require any downtime like a facelift: which can require a recovery time of up to two weeks away from the office.
