Male Face Procedures

As a premier cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian not only has surgical skill—he also has an aesthetic understanding of the human face. With his artistic eye, he can distinguish how to give each patient results that are appropriate for their unique facial structure. This artistic concern is especially important to male facial cosmetic procedures. In delivering male cosmetic surgery, Dr. Karamanoukian always considers the masculine appearance. Whether male patients are seeking a rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery or a facelift, they can expect a result that is natural, refined and conservative.

Male Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, is designed to lift the eyelids when they have begun to sag with age. Additionally, blepharoplasty can address the lower eyelids, eliminating so-called bags that may develop. Blepharoplasty not only produces a handsome cosmetic result, it also improves vision when sagging lids have begun to obstruct the eyes.

In male eyelid surgery, Dr. Karamanoukian maintains a masculine appearance while improving the cosmetic result. He removes excess skin and fat, which eliminates a tired, sad or angry look. Men who have undergone eyelid surgery at Dr. Karamanoukian’s office are ecstatic with the refreshed, youthful appearance it produces. If your lids have begun to droop, it may be time to consider male eyelid surgery.

Male Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job, is a procedure that helps achieve facial balance. Rhinoplasty is different for each patient—it not only depends on the nose itself, but also how the nose interacts with the rest of the facial structure. While some men may want a reduced dorsal hump (bridge), other men may want to sculpt the tip of their nose. It all depends on each patient’s unique needs.

For his male patients, Dr. Karamanoukian first listens to how they want their nose to be changed. Then, with these desires firmly in mind, he examines the nose and face to determine the best approach to deliver the optimum cosmetic result while adhering to the patient’s needs. Every male rhinoplasty is a new challenge, and Dr. Karamanoukian loves helping his patients find cosmetic excellence.

Male Facelift

For men who have begun to show signs of aging in the face, a facelift may be the perfect procedure. A facelift gives patients the opportunity to eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, sagging jowls and other features that may have begun to droop. During a facelift, Dr. Karamanoukian first tightens underlying muscle structure and tissue, creating a new canvas for the outer layer of skin. He then eliminates excess skin that’s responsible for the signs of aging. With his expert closing techniques, scarring is virtually invisible.

In delivering male facelifts, Dr. Karamanoukian is careful to consider two specific factors: the safety of the patient, and the cosmetic result. The skin in men’s face is thicker, meaning it must be treated differently in order to keep it healthy. Additionally, the masculine appearance must be firmly recognized through the whole procedure. With his precise approach and relentless attention to detail, Dr. Karamanoukian considers all factors to produce the best possible result.

Male Ultherapy

For men with mild signs of aging looking for a boost, Ultherapy is a cutting edge option that leaves patients feeling refreshed and youthful. Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical, no-downtime system that uses ultrasound to stimulate skin tightening and lifting using the body’s natural healing process. Ultherapy can be used on the eyebrows, neck, cheeks and under the chin. By targeting the deep, underlying facial tissues, Ultherapy produces incredible results while leaving the skin surface completely intact.

Ultherapy takes 60-90 minutes in our office. Immediately following the procedure, most patients notice a sudden improvement in their facial appearance. Then, over time, the single Ultherapy treatment will cause your body to continue the production of collagen and elastin, causing your skin to look younger. While the results of Ultherapy are less dramatic than surgical results, it still provides an effective alternative for patients not ready to undergo surgery.

Male BOTOX and Facial Fillers

BOTOX is a remarkable product that effectively reduces wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes. It is known as a neurotoxin, meaning it blocks nerve signals that tell a muscle to contract. When used with precision and skill, BOTOX reduces activity of wrinkle-causing muscles while still allowing patients to be expressive.

Dr. Karamanoukian routinely delivers BOTOX to men seeking an improvement in their facial cosmetic appearance. In delivering BOTOX, Dr. Karamanoukian carefully considers the male perspective, ensuring a masculine appearance is maintained. If necessary, BOTOX may also be combined with facial fillers. Facial fillers mimic collagen, filling in lines and wrinkles throughout the face. When it comes to BOTOX and facial fillers, Dr. Karamanoukian delivers treatment based on exactly what each patient wants to improve.

Male Skincare

In addition to delivering procedures that directly help his male patients achieve cosmetic excellence, Dr. Karamanoukian is also an expert in skincare. Using his wealth of skincare expertise, he regularly provides his patients with tips and regimens regarding skincare. Most frequently, this is done to help his patients maintain the results of a surgical procedure. In other cases, it is simply a service offered to help his patients maintain the best possible skincare for their face. By educating his patients based on their unique skin type, Dr. Karamanoukian helps them maintain the highest level of healthy, youthful skin.
