Cosmetic Procedures – Not just for women!

Grumpy Face“You’re so vain…I’ll bet you think this song is about you…”  As Carly Simon was rumored to be singing about Warren Beatty, it’s true that men can be just as vain as 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?  Plastic Surgery Associates, PC based in McLean, VA has been assisting men within our area for many years with non-surgical and surgical procedures.


Laser rejuvenation treatments can reduce the signs of aging and improve the appearance of your face and body. With the use of modern laser technology, skin irregularities can be improved, age spots eliminated, acne scars reduced, and unwanted facial hair removed. Many laser treatments can make you look more youthful and refreshed, which can boost your confidence and affect how you present yourself to others.


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. Botox, Radiesse, Restylane, and Juvederm, can treat moderate to severe frown lines, smile lines, sagging skin, and volume loss, giving a lift and tightening the skin. Injectables can even add definition to the chin to create a stronger-looking jawline.


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. Magassy, beyond liposuction, rhinoplasty and eyelid lifts are the most sought after surgical procedures by men within his practice.   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.

Many late nights of climbing the corporate ladder may have contributed to sagging eyelids.  No one wants to look like their tired or grumpy all the time.  Eyelid lifts leave patients with more youthful, “open” eyes.

If you or the man in your life is wanting a more youthful appearance, contact Plastic Surgery Associates to discuss options; both non-surgical and surgical.   Dr. Magassy will listen to your concerns and overall goals and provide a plan that will help reach those goals.
