Dr. Genter Discusses Men’s Cosmetic Needs with ABC News

philadelphia botox liposuctionAs more men turn to cosmetic procedures, what special considerations do their plastic surgeons make?

Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Genter has seen many male patients and told ABC News what he sees as the needs for men who choose cosmetic treatments.

For men who undergo liposuction, which is the top cosmetic surgery for men, according to ABC News, incisions cannot be made in the same manner or location they would for women in case the male patient wishes to go shirtless, Genter said.

When it comes to brow or facelifts, incisions cannot always be easily hidden in the hairline as they usually can on women, if the man is balding. Additionally, men who have facial hair or sideburns must receive special attention from their plastic surgeon to ensure the location of the facial hair remains natural, Genter said. Finally, as most men do not wear makeup, any surgical scars or post-surgery swelling may be somewhat more difficult to conceal.

Even with these added hurdles, men are increasingly turning to Dr. Genter and his contemporaries for treatments like Botox and dermal fillers, as well as procedures like eyelid surgery, to stay competitive in the job market.

Other popular procedures for men include male breast reduction, the range of facial rejuvenation procedures, as well as non-surgical options like chemical peels and skin resurfacing treatments.

Dr. Genter Suggests Pre-Event Surgical Planning in Mazel Tov! Magazine

Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Genter stresses the importance of finding the appropriate procedure for your needs and scheduling it to fit the timing of the event. He suggests working backward from the scheduled date of the event to ensure you have completed recovery.

Aside from traditional procedures you might choose to look your best, like a brow or facelift to eliminate sagginess and wrinkles on the face, Dr. Genter often uses injectable fillers.

Though they are traditionally used for filling deep lines and wrinkles, injectable fillers like Radiesse and Juvederm can be used for what it called a non-surgical nose job. Using these injectables, Dr. Genter is able to minimize bumps on a nose and even out its appearance.
