Q: I am a male, why should I consider a cosmetic procedure in New York City with Dr. Shridharani?
Whether it is a surgical or nonsurgical approach, men have many options today to improve their overall appearances. There has been an increase in men requesting cosmetic procedures mainly due to the decreased amount of downtime for cosmetic procedures. Many men are surprised to hear there are so many options when it comes to improving their look with very little downtime. Every year the number of men requesting cosmetic procedures has increased. Some of this may be related to baby boomers who have taken good care of themselves and desire to look as good as they feel. Other men don’t want their partner to look better than they do after their partner has undergone cosmetic procedures, so they request surgery as well. Men can now maintain a youthful appearance proportionate to our level of health and to our significant others.
Men primarily undergo the following cosmetic surgeries:
Across the board, men seeking plastic surgery tend to most commonly opt for the following procedures:
Cosmetic injectables (Botox/fillers)
Eyelid Surgery to remove extra skin and puffy lower eyelid fat and fullness
Rhinoplasty (aesthetic nose surgery)
Chin Augmentation or implant
Male Breast Surgery/Gynecomastia Surgery
Ear Surgery/”Ear Pinning” (Otoplasty)
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Q: I am a male and what is the best way I can improve my contour?
Men most commonly seek plastic surgery procedures to improve their overall body contour with liposuction and liposculpting. Dr. Shridharani understands the male aesthetic and focuses on accentuating natural lines to “etch” a “six-pack” in appropriate patients. Many men find that liposuction can give them the results that they have spent years in the gym trying to achieve. Unfortunately, diet and exercise can’t cure all problems with the contour of the abdomen and waist. With metabolism changes, even a meticulous healthy eater with an active lifestyle can still experience abdominal bulges and “love handles”. Liposuction can provide a means of sculpting the torso to give a more pleasing shape and enhance confidence with and without clothes. The “dad bod” may not be your ideal look and if you have found that you have gained inches around your waist due to having children, working long hours, etc. liposuction may be a very good option for you.
Q: Is it common for men to request Kybella from Dr. Shridharani?
Kybella is used as an injection like Botox or fillers in the submental/“double chin” region to dissolve fat away and improve the overall contour of the neck and jawline. Traditional methods to treat excess fat in the neck and under the chin require liposuction and/or a neck lift. Many men find after years of exercise/diet, the fat under their chin remains. Kybella is the perfect option to achieve that chiseled chin you have always wanted. Please see our Kybella page for more information on Kybella.
Q: Do men really get Botox?
Whether it’s to feel more confident prepping for that big meeting or preparing for an event, many men are requesting Botox at LUXURGERY with Dr. Shridharani. Men also often seek “bro-tox” a colloquial term for botox injections to help ease the appearance of deep creases and wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows (glabella) and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Also, Botox is now even considered a preventive procedure and is often used to prevent the very deep lines men accrue over years of stress. It is very common that men say no one noticed they got Botox, but people have told them that they look much better.
Q: Do men get injectable fillers?
Absolutely! Due to the aging process or weight loss, men often find they have lost volume in their face. Volume loss leads to deeper creases and wrinkles. If you look at photo of yourself 5-10 years ago you may notice volume loss in your cheeks or increased deep lines around your mound (nasolabial folds). Voluma, which is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler, can manage to lift the cheek without making the face look fat. Filler injected into the face is just another way men can improve their look with very minimal downtime!
Q: What can I do as a male to improve my skin?
Sun exposure damages the skin making the skin look dry and leathery. The sun also causes blotches of dark pigmentation otherwise known as “sun spots.” Loose, inelastic skin with “sun spots” makes the skin appear older than the actual age would suggest. Skin resurfacing is a great way to remove the damaged skin and improve skin tightening leaving a much-improved appearance.
Q: What can I do to improve my “tired eyes”?
Do you find people saying you look tired, your lids hang over your eyes, or you have puffy lower eyelids? If so, you may want to consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to give you a refreshed look. The surgery involves minimal pain with most men being able to return of feeling comfortable in social situations or work within a week or two.
