Men and women age differently, and the goals of our male patients are frequently quite different. Deep forehead creases, fine lines induced by UV exposure, drooping in the mid-face, and the development of jowls around the jawline are the most frequent indications of aging in men. Dermal fillers in Miami with Dr. Jeremy White can reduce the appearance of many of these issues. Working with an expert injector who understands the unique needs of male injectable patients is essential. Dr. Jeremy White, a double board-certified cosmetic surgeon, has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and extensive experience working with male patients to achieve spectacular results while maintaining a manly appearance. Schedule a consultation with ARC Plastic Surgery to learn how dermal fillers for men differ from women.
Men, like women, are concerned about their physical appearance and aging. We're all starting to notice the symptoms of aging, and male or female, we're not happy about it. Collagen production declines as we age. Facial dermal fillers for men can restore volume and fullness to the skin, correcting facial wrinkles, reducing visible skin folds, and enhancing lips, leaving the face smooth and youthful. Many males want to keep or accentuate masculine traits, while many women wish to soften features for a more feminine appearance.
Dermal fillers are a safe and efficient way to smooth, lift, and highlight regions of your face. When injected beneath the skin's surface, they reinforce the underlying dermal structure, smoothing out wrinkles and strengthening the lines of your facial features. Dermal fillers are often utilized to treat deep facial wrinkles and superficial fine lines in male patients. They lift and volumize the midface while diminishing the look of jowls. Fillers can help to define and firm a sagging chin or jawline. In addition, dermal fillers for males increase the shape of the nose and the symmetry of facial proportions.
Because each face is unique, and each injectable has its own set of benefits and drawbacks, you must consult with an experienced cosmetic doctor about your desired results. Consulting with Dr. White ensures that you receive the most beneficial therapy possible depending on your goals and treatment areas of interest.
Dr. White will analyze your medical history during your Miami dermal fillers appointment to ensure that injectables are a safe and effective option for you. If you are typically healthy, want to fix minor to moderate flaws, and do not want permanent results, you are likely a candidate for fillers.
Dr. White will begin by cleansing your skin and administering an anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Then, he will use a needle or a small cannula to inject the filler into the targeted regions after it has taken effect. The injections will be put strategically to achieve the required level of correction while retaining your manly facial structure. For example, Dr. White may use a thicker, higher viscosity filler to adjust for men's more prominent bone structure and denser skin.
While the recovery time for each filler treatment varies depending on the particular patient, the target area, and the level of correction, there is minimal discomfort and swelling. If there is swelling, it typically lasts between 24 and 48 hours. There is no downtime required. Men can take their shots and then return to work or school. After the treatment, the target area may be sore for a few days. However, an over-the-counter pain treatment such as acetaminophen is usually sufficient.
Almost immediately, there is an increase in volume and lifting. However, it may take a few days to see your final results if you experienced swelling. Some dermal fillers last six to nine months before patients seek a touch-up treatment. Others can last up to two years.
Men are often left out of anti-aging discussions, but they are equally concerned about the signs of aging showing on their faces. Start the conversation about dermal fillers for men with Dr. Jeremy White during your Miami consultation at ARC Plastic Surgery.
Each injection is given using a small needle. To alleviate discomfort, we use ice before treatment to distract from the needle's poke and lessen the danger of bruising. In addition, to relieve pain, we use topical numbing prior to injections and many of our dermal fillers are combined with lidocaine, a numbing agent.
Fillers are a trusted method of restoring volume and smoothing facial wrinkles that appear as a natural part of the aging process. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved fillers as safe, there is a slight probability of adverse effects. Redness, bruising, soreness, and pinpoint bleeding at the injection site are possible side effects. It is also normal to experience hypersensitivity or numbness for the first week. However, when a board-certified plastic surgeon or skilled injector is used, more significant problems, including infection, are uncommon.
If you’re considering plastic surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon could not be more important. Dr. Jeremy White is the recipient of many honors and awards, including the 2021 Doctor’s Choice Award Miami, the 2016 RealSelf Top 500, and the prestigious Castle Connolly Top Doctors Award Winner in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
