dermal fillers for men


DO YOU WANT THOSE DEEP LINES AROUND YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE TO DISAPPEAR OR NEED TO REPLENISH VOLUME IN YOUR MIDFACE OR CHEEK BONES? We offer dermal fillers that instantly smooth away wrinkles, restore volume and give you the natural-looking results.
Dermal fillers are injectable soft gels designed to immediately reduce wrinkles, plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Like any other drug, they have to be FDA approved before being used clinically. Thus, fillers have a very safe track record in the United States.

Dermal fillers for men are becoming an increasingly popular way to take control and reverse the signs of aging and stress. Fillers are used to remove lines and wrinkles caused by environmental factors, challenging careers, aging, sun exposure, lifestyle pressures or simply as a result of the way they use their facial muscles. Fillers can help maintain youthful facial contours and enhance masculine features.There are several different types of fillers. Some are used to correct the volume loss related to the aging face, applied deeper under the skin; while others are applied more superficial to correct fine lines and wrinkles for a finished airbrush look.
 

Belotero balance®

BELOTERO BALANCE is a fine hyaluronic acid gel specially designed to correct age related imperfections of the most superficial skin layer, such as fine lines and winkles around the eyes and mouth, and to reduce the tear trough deformity or "under eye groove." BELOTERO BALANCE is the dermal filler of choice for the treatment of the most superficial layer of skin.

fat transfer for men


OVER TIME, HAS YOUR FACE DEVELOPED A DEFICIT IN VOLUME, AND THE TIME SPENT AT THE GYM HASN'T HELPED INCREASE THE VOLUME OF YOUR PECTORALS? Don't sweat it; there is the fat transfer procedure that can help.
 
Men tend to lose volume in the midsection of their face, causing it to sag and lose their jawline. For other areas of the body, some men can work out two or three times as much as others and never see much increase in the contours of their chest or much decrease in their waist.

Fat or adipose tissue harvested from specific areas of the body, can be preserved safely and re-injected in other areas such as chest, buttocks, face and hands in order to re-create their most natural aesthetic shape and restore a youthful appearance. Fat transfer is done using a local anesthetic and mild sedation. A small surgical instrument known as a cannula is inserted into the area of fat removal. The cannula is attached to a vacuum source, which provides gentle suction to remove the emulsified fat. Modern techniques of liposuction target fat cells leaving behind a normal collagen matrix. Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center introduced Body-Jet® Liposuction. This amazing technique uses pressurized water or water jet to obtain fat tissue sparing not only that remaining matrix but also the integrity of the graft adipose and stem cells. This concept renders enough cell survival that there is no need to enhance the graft with PRP (platelet rich plasma) or stem cell isolation and enrichment. As with other techniques such as vibroliposuction, fat is emulsified while simultaneously extracted. After being processed through a LipoCollector® 3 device, this fat is then ready to be grafted or transplanted.
 
Fat Transfer for Men — Liposuction in Frisco, TX
 
Fat transfer is not new; it has been performed for decades. However, its results were suboptimal due to the poor graft survival in the past. This has changed considerably with the advent of modern liposuction techniques. Water assisted liposuction, ultrasound liposuction, power assisted liposuction and vibroliposuction are the most recently developed techniques responsible for the current success of fat transfer today. Medilaser surgeons, Drs. Robinson and Giraldo, were the first in the United States in performing liposuction using vibrating cannulas.

They taught surgeons from different parts of the country this new minimal invasive technique. Today, many patients have successful procedures with long lasting transplants that give them younger looks. In an evidence based review article published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, water assisted liposuction and power assisted cannulas were found to be the best liposuction techniques available today. This translates to exceptional and consistent harvesting procedures for fat transfer.
 

who are good candidates for fat transfer?

Healthy individuals who want natural volume restoration of specific areas with a harmonious contour. Also, patients interested in correcting areas of the body previously distorted by trauma, surgeries and earlier cosmetic procedures become excellent candidates for autologous fat grafting.
 

which areas can be recipients of fat transfer?

face: 3-D face lift

Autologous fat transfer is a common technique used to rejuvenate the face. Furthermore, it has been found that the skin overlying the area of the transfer improves its texture and appearance due to the biologic activity of the new cells. In other words, transferred fat not only provides volume and structure to the recipient site, but also greatly contributes with nutrition and mediators that further enhance the appearance of the overlying skin.
 

buttocks: brazilian butt lift

Autologous fat transfer or fat grafting to the buttocks not only provides this region with more volume but produces a significant lift. This restores the youthful look of the lower body. Frequently, this procedure achieves results beyond expectations and especially for those who have tried intense work outs to achieve more defined buttocks and thighs. Fat grafting is accomplished through tiny incisions or puncture-incisions that leave no scars.
 

chest

Fat or adipose tissue harvested from specific areas of the body, can be preserved safely and re-injected in the chest in order to re-create a natural aesthetic shape. The unwanted fat is injected in a series of small incisions into the top section of the pectorals, giving them a "lift". While a fat transfer to your pectorals will not increase your muscle mass, it will give the appearance of a firmer, more toned chest.
 

hands: hand fat transfer rejuvenation

The dorsal aspect of the hand is one of the areas of the body that show the most volume reduction due to fat loss. This phenomenon reflects an aging hand that frequently causes aesthetic concerns. Autologous fat grafting of this region is easy and highly successful. This procedure is performed through one or two puncture incisions that leave no residual scars. The grafted fat blends with other structures of the dorsal hand such as veins and tendons restoring its youthful appearance. As with fat transfer to the face and other areas, the overlying skin texture improves due to biologic activity of the transplanted cells.

liposuction for men


IS THE FAT AROUND YOUR STOMACHE AND SIDES RESISTANT TO DIET AND EXCERCISE? Lose the "love handles," "spare tire" or abdominal fat with liposuction.
 
Liposuction is the most frequent cosmetic surgery procedure chosen by men. The ultimate male body shape is trim and athletic looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area. This shape changes with age as fatty tissue progressively builds up around the abdomen, the flanks ("love handles"), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck. Or, perhaps you have lived for years with a double chin. Men seek liposuction to remove these fatty areas which frequently are resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction can effectively correct these problem areas. In fact, the male gender is very favorable for liposuction because of its skin thickness and retained elasticity. Occasionally, men who have very loose, hanging skin in addition to excess fat may need surgical skin removal (tummy tuck) along with the liposuction procedure. At Medilaser, Cosmetic Surgery and Vein Center, we further improve our final cosmetic results by sculpting the tissues near the muscles to enhance the athletic shape of a particular anatomic area. Liposuction can change your life in many ways. It can make you look better physically, make you feel better about yourself and give you the motivation to lead a healthier life.

who are the candidates for liposuction?

Healthy men who have unattractive fat accumulation in specific areas of the body are excellent candidates for liposuction.

Male breast reduction (gynecomastia)


DO YOU HIDE BEHIND BAGGY T-SHIRTS, HESITATE TO GO BARE-CHESTED AT THE POOL OR GYM? If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your chest, you may be a good candidate for male breast reduction surgery.
 
Due to various reasons, some men develop excess breast tissue and fat in the chest area. The medical term for this condition is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. It is thought to affect nearly half of all men in the U.S. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition. With modern advances in liposuction, the excess fat tissue can be removed safely.

who are the candidates for gynecomastia surgery?

Gynecomastia surgery candidates include:
 
 
  • Men whose condition cannot be corrected through alternative medical treatments
  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers and non-drug users
  • Men with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improving the physical symptoms of gynecomastia
  • Men who are physically healthy and of relatively normal weight
  • Men who have realistic expectations
  • Men whose breast development has stabilized
  • Men who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too large
 

neuromodulators for men


DO YOU HAVE UNWANTED EXPRESSION LINES IN-BETWEEN YOUR EYEBROWS THAT TEND TO MAKE YOU LOOK ANGRY? BOTOX® Cosmetic, DYSPORT® and XEOMIN® will allow you to still smile and frown without those aging lines.
 
One of the pillars of an aging face is the developement of folds and wrinkles upon expressions. This occurs because our facial muscles are intrinsicly attached to the skin. When these muscles contract during expressions, the skin will retract between the eyebrows and crow's feet area, creating an "accordian" affect. Neuromodulators are natural compounds that work blocking the signal that make these muscles contract. Thus, the overlying skin smooths out.
 
 
Millions of men and women have realized the benefits of being treated with the neuromodulators BOTOX® Cosmetic, DYSPORT® and XEOMIN®. This simple, non-surgical treatment works by gently applying a few microscopic injections into specific areas of the face which relax the muscles to provide a smooth and even skin surface. The procedure is proven to be effective in bringing back a fresh appearance by lifting your brows and diminishing wrinkles caused by facial expressions.

Neuromodulators have been used for decades changing the lives of men and women around the world making it the most common and safest aesthetic procedure.
