Surgical And Non-Surgical Procedures

Another area that really bothers men is the sagging and loss of definition of the jawline and neck.
With time the muscles in the face and neck start to relax leading to sagging. This results in the presence of jowls and neck waddles. The correction of this is treated with either a facelift, neck lift, or combination of both face and neck lift.
The eyes are perhaps the first part of the face to show the signs of aging. Treatment of the eyes typically will require a combination of removal of the excess upper eyelid and lower eyelid skin (Blepharoplasty) and the addition of fat to the lower eyelid region. The fat transfer is used to soften the dark hollows created by volume loss and the removal of skin is designed to smooth out the creepy excessive lower lid skin and open up the puffy and hanging upper lid skin. Occasionally, the fat pads of the lower eyelids will need to be removed. The trick in male patients is to know how much to remove so that the eyes maintain a natural masculine look.
There Are a Number of Ways to Correct Facial Volume Loss, However, The Two Most Common and Effective Ways Are: Fat Transfer and Sculptra.
Fat Transfer with this procedure, fat is removed from one part of the body (typically stomach in men) and is added to the face. The results are designed to restore the lost fat in a permanent way. This can have a major rejuvenating effect. Understanding how the male face ages is an important prerequisite. Male facial fat transfer requires a different set of aesthetic criteria given the fact the male face is so unique.
Sculptra is a stimulator of collagen and works slowly over time. Sculptra is injected every 4-6 weeks and typically requires 3 treatments. The results can be very effective and rejuvenating. The process does not require any downtime.
Botox injections are used to help relax expression lines (wrinkles) in the upper face and around the eyes. It makes the face look more youthful and the expressions less harsh. This is used for both the prevention and treatment of wrinkles.
Fillers are used to fill in folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose (nasolabial folds). Common fillers are Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse.
Rhinoplasty For Men
Rhinoplasty is nose shaping. Small changes in the shape of the nose can result in significant changes in the appearance of the face. Sometimes, rhinoplasty is used to correct problems that have occurred as part of sports injuries and other times simply just to refine a feature that may be causing a negative impact on the appearance. In other cases, it may be combined with work on the inside of the nose in order to enhance breathing and snoring.
"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."
"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"
"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."
"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
