Men visit my facial cosmetic surgery practice in Toronto for the same reasons as women – to look more attractive and hold onto their youth. I make sure my patients understand the differences between what makes a man’s face look attractive and what makes a woman’s face look attractive. Men want to look younger, but they usually don’t want to look “pretty.”
Let’s review some popular procedures and how they can be adapted to preserve masculinity.
- Brow lifts raise a sagging forehead and eyebrows. While high, arched eyebrows are often attractive in women, masculinity is often better-enhanced by thick, lower-set brows that don’t obstruct the upper eyelids.
- Eyelid lifts produce more masculine results when the upper lid retains a slight fullness, as opposed to a more feminine, deep, well-defined eyelid crease.
- Facelifts vary for men mainly in the incision placement, because men often have receding hairlines. The surgeon must also account for men’s thicker skin and facial hair (like sideburns and beards).
- Nose surgery improves the shape and function of the nose. Rhinoplasy surgeons in Toronto should understand that a strong, straight nose enhances masculinity as opposed to a softly rounded nose. Many men benefit from lifting the tip of the nose, as it commonly droops with age.
Cosmetic surgery, when performed by an experienced professional with well-developed aesthetic understanding, can give men a rejuvenated appearance without sacrificing the attributes that make them look masculine.
