The common myth is that men just keep looking better as they age, and that wrinkles and creases give men character. The truth is, aging simply makes men look older. Many effects of aging are premature and can be successfully treated without surgery. The aesthetics of your appearance do not have to decline as you age. This page details some of the many ways Sadrian Plastic Surgery in La Jolla Diego can rejuvenate your natural good looks and vitality.

- Significant age lines and wrinkles
- Heavy, drooping brow

Who is a Candidate for a Male Neck Lift?
Dr. Sadrian has seen a rise in the popularity of neck lifts for men at his clinic during the past ten years. This is partly due to the advances in cosmetic technology, and because a neck lift can dramatically achieve a more youthful look without revealing that you have had “work done.” Male neck lifts generally are recommended for middle-aged men who have accumulated neck fat and sagging skin, and for older men who have lost subcutaneous fat and have loose folds of skin on the neck zone. A neck lift may be combined a facelift for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
How Does Gynecomastia Occur and What Can Be Done About It?
Enlarged breasts in men due to excessive breast tissue or fatty deposits a common problem. It can be brought on by one or more factors:
- Hormonal changes
- Steroid treatment or as a side effect of prescription medication.
Treatment depends upon the amount and density of the glandular tissue. Procedures can range from small incision surgery to liposuction to extract excess fat. The goal is a more masculine, firm, attractive upper chest – imagine being free of the excess fat and tissue on your breasts -- your self-confidence in your appearance will be greatly enhanced.
The Tummy Tuck: What You Should Know.
The tummy tuck has become an increasingly more popular procedure for men. Often performed after weight/fat reduction surgery, a tummy tuck pulls in and tightens abdominal skin and repairs stretched muscles. A tummy tuck can restore the fit, athletic look of youth – no more loose shirts or bulging belly. Dr. Sadrian will go over your qualifications for the procedure, which include:
- Realistic expectations
- The state of your health, diet and current weight
- Your age and skin condition
- If you have large amounts of intra-abdominal fat, you may first need to diet and exercise.
Do Men Get Liposuction? Yes.
If you have excess fat that stubbornly resists diet and exercise, if you want to look younger and fitter, and if your skin has enough elasticity, you may be a good candidate for liposuction. Heavier patients may need additional procedures to achieve their cosmetic goals. Liposuction can do wonders for eliminating trapped fat that exercising and diet can’t resolve. Liposuction removes the actual fat cells lodged in the abdomen or other body area. It may be the ideal procedure to restore a more youthful shape.

PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has been used in the medical field for decades to speed healing. PRP is extracted from a sample of your own blood, and then injected to trigger natural regeneration. PRP can be used to trigger the growth of healthier skin, or to stimulate dormant hair follicles to once again produce healthy, thick strands of hair.
