More men than ever before are coming to our plastic surgery practice in Calgary for cosmetic treatments.
Social media, business meetings via Skype, and a natural desire to look more youthful have fueled an increase in men undergoing aesthetic treatments that help them look more refreshed and attractive. However, our specialists, including our Royal College-certified plastic surgeons, understand that men have cosmetic goals that differ from women, and they tailor our nonsurgical and surgical procedures to address those unique concerns.

Nonsurgical Treatments for Men
In most cases, men want less invasive treatments that require little or no downtime and create subtle results. Nonsurgical treatments, such as injectables, are ideal options. In addition to facial rejuvenation, nonsurgical body contouring for men can reduce bulges that resist exercise and diet.
These are the most popular nonsurgical treatments for men:
Men are getting BOTOX® injections from their early 30s to their 50s. Many of our patients say they didn't think they would ever be in a plastic surgeon's office but have seen the difference injectables such as BOTOX® made in the appearance of colleagues and friends. BOTOX® works by relaxing the muscles that move when you change expressions, such as squinting, frowning, or looking surprised. Men and women, however, tend to have different goals when they get BOTOX®. Women want smooth skin and often get BOTOX® to minimize forehead wrinkles and the vertical lines, often called "worry lines," between the eyes. Guys are more interested in softening crow's feet at the corners of the eyes but don't want to erase all wrinkles.
Sometimes men who come to our practice seeking aesthetic improvements need surgery. For example, eyelid surgery is very effective for men whose upper eyelids sag and make them look much older than they are. It's a relatively uncomplicated procedure that produces dramatic results.
