Better Looking Men Have a Competitive Edge

Plastic Surgery Options For Men in Los Angeles

At the practice of Michael Bublik, MD, the staff is committed to working closely with patients towards their well-being, ensuring personalized attention and the highest standards of patient care.Dr. Michael Bublik, a board certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, has noticed a significant increase of male patients seeking his expertise to improve their looks.

While Dr. Bublik has performed plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures on various male celebrities, he’s quick to note that most of his male patients are average men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, since 1997, men’s cosmetic procedures have increased 106%. The top five cosmetic surgeries for men are liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose jobs), eyelid surgery, gynecomastia (removal of excess breast tissue) and ear reshaping.

He further emphasizes that men seek plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures not to radically alter their looks; on the contrary, most of his patients want work done that won’t look like they’ve had work done. Dr. Bublik’s patients realize that in today’s society, a person’s appearance is important not only in social situations but also in the workplace. Significant research shows that physically attractive people are more successful, tend to earn more than those with average looks, tend to get hired sooner, get promoted quicker, sell more, and even get a bank loan more easily than less attractive people. Better looking people are also perceived as more intelligent and friendlier than others who are not considered attractive.

Dr. Bublik prides himself on his individualized approach to men’s surgical and non-surgical procedures. His unique consultation process allows him to personally get to know each patient he works with at his practice and allows him to offer options that produce truly one-of-a-kind results. He considers a variety of different factors when recommending a specific option for a patient, including their ethnicity, personality and lifestyle. His goal is to bring out the best, natural facial features in each patient and improve facial harmony without eliminating the identity of the patient.

Dr. Bublik points out that his male patients usually don’t want conventional cookie-cutter looks. For instance, many of his patients want to maintain their prominent or ethnic noses and, instead of a full-on rhinoplasty (aka nose job), choose to balance their naturally big noses with chin implants. Even those male patients who are interested in facial plastic surgery procedures like the rhinoplasty do not necessarily want to project delicate, effeminate features after the operation is complete. Many men are looking for a surgeon, like Dr. Bublik, who have extensive experience with male patients, and are adept at providing men with strong, dominant and masculine features that simply look better than they did prior to the operation.
Dr. Bublik also reports a significant increase in male patients seeking Botox injections. He points out that according to a study in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology, the number of American men getting Botox injections—which relax the facial muscles to minimize lines and wrinkles—has skyrocketed 258% over the past decade or so.

At this practice, Dr. Bublik reports, in addition to Botox and other wrinkle relaxers, male patients can also get great results with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. Dermal fillers (also called soft tissue fillers) are a non-surgical injectable treatment used to restore facial volume, create youthful facial contours, and smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dr. Bublik injects the dermal fillers into the skin using very fine needles; most patients report no discomfort. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, dermal fillers are the most common non-surgical procedure after Botox, and are typically used as part of an ongoing skin maintenance routine for both men and women. Injectables are particularly effective in softening the look of moderate to severe frown lines and in adding volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).

Some of Dr. Bublik’s patients prefer to avoid surgery and seek non-surgical options for subtle improvement such as a micro-liposuction to clean up the jawline—which can become slack when you're in your 30’s and 40’s due to excess fat or sun exposure. Dr. Bublik can perform a micro-liposuction in his office under mild sedation, with no sutures and only minor bruising, in about 30-45 minutes.

Ear reshaping is a type of cosmetic surgery used to treat protruding ears. The operation is also known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty and is one of the most common surgeries performed in male patients in Dr. Bublik’s practice. Surgery to reshape the ears involves remodeling the cartilage into a less protruding shape. The ear reshaping surgery can be performed under local or general anesthetic, depending on the requirements of the procedure, and can take just under a few hours.

Dr. Bublik emphasizes that men want to look attractive, young and energetic throughout their entire lives. Simply because a man is getting older, doesn't mean that he wants to appear aged and worn-out. Men are working for a longer amount of time, having children later in life and accomplishing more throughout their middle ages and senior years, and they want to look fresh, virile and energetic while doing it. Why not start 2014 with a consultation with Dr. Bublik? He will be happy to meet with you and discuss personalized options based on your lifestyle and particular goals.
