At board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty’s plastic surgery practice in Boston, many male patients are looking for procedures that help them look more refreshed and ready to take on the world. Here are a few common complaints that are addressed by Dr. Doherty at his practice:
- Sagging skin: Face lifts and neck lifts can be excellent – and aggressive – solutions for sagging facial skin. Eyelid surgery can be used to address sagging skin and fat that accumulate on the upper and lower eyelids, helping men look more awake and refreshed.
- Wrinkles and fine lines: Botox injections are an excellent solution to lines on the forehead and eyes. Dermal fillers can fill out wrinkles and folds around the cheeks, nose and mouth. Some dermal fillers can even be used to add youth-enhancing volume to the cheeks.
- Male breasts: Gynecomastia surgery is on the rise, as more men are ready to say goodbye to man-boobs. Liposuction can eliminate male breast tissue, while skin-tightening procedures can tighten and tone any sagging skin that’s been left behind.
