In today’s society, many men desire to look young, fit, and fashionable, just as many women do. Although men’s objectives are individualized and vary depending upon factors such as age, lifestyle, complexion, and budget, many times facial plastic procedures offer potential opportunities to meet men’s goals.
Dr. Stallworth has in-depth experience with popular facial plastic procedures for male patients.
As men age, many suffer from hair loss, making hair transplantation procedures, such as NeoGraft, an appealing option. Hair transplantation involves adding follicles from areas of dense hair growth to areas that are bald or thinning. This procedure sometimes requires multiple sessions to lend hair a fuller look. Benefits, transplantation details, and additional information about the procedure can be found in our “All You Need to Know” blog.
Aging causes the skin to lose some of its elasticity, causing skin to sag. It also causes depletion of fat in deeper layers of skin, which reduces the youthful fullness of a man’s face. Wrinkles become more prominent and skin vitality decreases. A popular solution to these issues is fillers, which can restore the look of fullness to the face. Facial fillers have an additional benefit of decreasing the appearance of acne scarring. Common facial fillers for men include hyaluronic acid and collagen.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is another common procedure requested by aging men. When skin begins to sag, the eye area may appear droopy, which can add years to a man’s face. Eyelid surgery lifts the eye area, improving balance and facial harmony. Multiple benefits are associated with the procedure. Removal of excess skin from the lower eyelids reduces the appearance of wrinkles and eliminates “bags” from underneath eyes. It also decreases puffiness in and around eyelids. Although not a cosmetic benefit, the removal of sagging skin can also improve visibility for a patient.
Rhinoplasty has increased in popularity for both men and women in recent years. Rhinoplasty can be performed for both functional and aesthetic purposes. By having a well-defined nose, rhinoplasty allows for a more symmetrical or balanced appearance. Rhinoplasty is such a popular procedure that we have developed a list of FAQs, which you can find answered here.
BOTOX® is an injectable that is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Approved by the FDA for this purpose, it helps men and women alike to achieve the goal of smoothing the skin, resulting in a more youthful look. BOTOX® is most commonly used to treat the forehead, the neck, and crow’s feet. On occasion, it may also help with other issues, such as areas of profuse sweating and migraines. BOTOX® works quickly and does not involve surgery, so it is popular among men with busy lifestyles as there is no downtime with the procedure.
Chin augmentation surgery is procedure that helps facial structure appear more pronounced. Patients who undergo chin augmentation often strive to define their jawline contours or reduce their “double chins”. Chin implants can easily be performed in tandem with other procedures, and many men report regaining confidence in their appearances after undergoing the procedure.

Facelifts are another surgical option to reduce signs of aging throughout the face. Facelifts tighten sagging skin, remove double chins, and smooth wrinkled areas. They are a popular and comprehensive procedure. According to Web MD, approximately 1 in 10 people who undergo facelifts are men.
