I first started coming to the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (CPRS) many years ago to support my wife, Amy, through her surgical procedures. Eventually, I became a patient myself using their skin care products for men and receiving monthly microdermabrasion treatments. I liked the changes that I was noticing in my skin, but I was getting tired of people telling me that I looked tired all the time.
Once I decided to pursue cosmetic surgery to look less tired, there was no question where I would go or who I would trust to do my operation. I knew that I would be in good hands with Dr. Izenberg. You can just tell that he really cares about his patients. During my consultation, we discussed eyelid surgery and a browlift to achieve my personal goals. He took the time to listen to all of my concerns and I was well informed before the operation.
I was fortunate to have a pretty easy recovery and the entire CPRS team treated me like family during every pre and post-operative visit. Ultimately, I was glad that I had made the decision to have surgery. It really made me feel good about myself and I have no regrets.
Amy and I have vowed to embrace this aging process together. She makes me feel young and she supported my decision to have cosmetic surgery. I also continue to encourage her to do what she feels is right for her. We are in this together for the long haul.
“CPRS creates a family-like atmosphere that we have been a part of for the past 12 years. The entire team is not only knowledgeable and professional, but nurturing as well. They help us make good decisions and we feel like family every time we come to the office.” ~Rob and Amy
“If you’re considering cosmetic surgery, do it for yourself. There’s nothing better than feeling good inside about how your look.”
An EYELID LIFT or Blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess upper or lower eyelid skin and fat to create a more youthful, rested appearance of the eyes.
A BROWLIFT also known as a forehead lift, is designed to rejuvenate the upper one-third of the face, or the area above the brow. It can also elevate and reshape the brow as well as improve heaviness or drooping of the brow.
MICRODERMABRASION is a corrective skin care treatment that can minimize fine lines, soften and smooth the skin’s texture and reduce sun damage and pigmentation. Microdermabrasion is often followed by a mild facial peel to increase the benefits of both treatments.
Cosmetic Surgery for Men
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men had more than 1 million cosmetic procedures last year. That accounts for 9.4% of the total number of procedures performed in the United States. Since 1997 there has been a 273% increase in the number of cosmetic procedures for men. The most popular were liposuction, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and male breast reduction. Botox and Dysport were the most requested non-surgical procedures for male patients. Men are also the largest growing segment of the skin care industry. More and more men are using skin care products as part of their daily routines and companies are creating products with their specific needs in mind. Sleek packaging, masculine scents and simplified programs are just part of their offerings.
The Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery has provided surgical and non-surgical products and services for men for many years, including; GlyMed Plus skin care products for men, therapeutic massage therapy, laser hair removal, Botox and Dysport, dermal fillers, liposuction, eyelid surgery, facelifts, browlifts, nose reshaping, and male breast reduction.
