When it comes to cosmetic surgery, it pays to choose only the best. The Gladstone Clinic offers cosmetic surgery for men.
While Women and Men are created equal, they have different needs when it comes to rejuvenation. This is due to anatomy, the aging process and secondarily self-perception and perception by society. In both women and men, symmetry, averageness, gender characteristics (prominent forehead; lower brows large nose, strong jawline and chin, full head of hair); skin color and tone/smoothness and tautness play major roles in attractiveness and facial communication. Yet aging is different. Dr. Gladstone was the senior author of a landmark study demonstrating the difference in structural facial aging between women and men.
For most of the 20th century, the large majority of men ignored the aging process and traditionally did not have cosmetic procedures. With increased life expectancy, technology to functionally slow the aging process, and subsequent longer careers, more active retirements, and more romantic opportunities, more mature men have considered rejuvenating procedures. Youthful robustness has also become more important in younger men who hope to advance in the workforce.
Men tend to have thicker and oily skin from sebum generated by testosterone. Men have larger thicker facial bones and larger muscles. Men lose facial fat in different ways than women. All of these anatomic qualities determine the types of treatments and amounts used—for instance more Botox® or Dysport® may be a need in men’s frown lines for the forehead. Fillers may need to be placed in different facial areas in the cheek and temple areas. Certain tightening and procedures such as liposuction of the neck may help to produce a stronger jawline along with a chin augmentation with a filler.
Men have different areas of excess fat deposits, most commonly on the flanks known as “love handles.” These fat deposits extend to both the front and back and blunt the desired muscular triangular physique desired by most men. Men also have different hair concerns than women. Hair loss in men can cause issues in self-esteem and perception. Dr. Gladstone specializes in hair transplant using advanced SmartGraft technology.
