Cosmetic Procedures – Not just for women!

In today’s society, your appearance means a lot.   People form first impressions of you based solely on your looks.  Physically attractive people are more likely to be seen as dateable, reliable, marketable, worthy of a promotion, etc. Now more than ever, men over age 40 are undergoing cosmetic treatments to maintain an attractive, youthful appearance as the years pass. So what procedures are men seeking?  Widder Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery based in Vienna, VA has been assisting men within our area for many years with non-surgical and surgical procedures.


Women aren’t the only victims of facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and volume loss due to aging. To help you look younger so that you can keep up with all the younger generations competing with you for promotions, facial injectable treatments for men is a great option. Injectables such as Botox, can treat moderate to severe frown lines, smile lines, sagging skin; and injectable fillers such as Restylane help with volume loss, giving a lift and tightening the skin. Injectables can even add definition to the chin to create a stronger-looking jawline.


Men decide to have calf implant surgery for varying reasons. The obvious reason is unhappiness with the size and shape of their lower legs – specifically – the leg calf.  Once men have realized that no amount of exercise will significantly enlarge the calf muscles, they choose calf implant surgery. Calf implants are also used to correct deformities resulting from injury or nerve diseases that result in muscle deterioration.


Most men aren’t able to put in a lot of time in the gym due to career, family, and life.  They may be in their prime professionally, but they may not feel as on top of their game physically once they hit middle age. This is where liposuction becomes a possibility. Liposuction removes fat from the abdomen, revealing the muscles that are already present.


According to Dr. Widder, beyond liposuction, rhinoplasty is a very sought after surgical procedure by men.   Noses don’t particularly age like other parts of the face and body, but men that haven’t “liked” their nose through the younger years, are now in a position financially to be address their concerns.


Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause embarrassment, causing men to avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.  Liposuction and removal of breast tissue are required to provide optimal results.  Men that have had this cosmetic surgery regain confidence, self-esteem and sense of masculinity.

If you or the man in your life is wanting a more youthful appearance, contact Widder Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery to discuss options; both non-surgical and surgical.   Dr. Widder will listen to your concerns and overall goals and provide a plan that will help reach those goals.  Call to schedule your consultation and book before December 31, 2018 to receive 5% off surgical procedure.
