Almost anyone can benefit from the perks of plastic surgery. Men commonly go to the cosmetic surgeon and ask for the following popular procedures to improve their appearance and boost their confidence:
The natural aging process can lead to fatty deposits that keep men from achieving their ideal body aesthetic. If extra fat pockets have given you love handles, extra skin in the breast area, or too much fat around the face or neck, liposuction could be your solution. Talk to the cosmetic surgeon about whether liposuction is a good idea for you.
Men tend to carry weight around the abdomen, which can lead to strange-looking folds of skin. A tummy tuck can help you get rid of this fat and skin while making the waistline narrower and more attractive.
If you constantly work out but do not see any progress in your lower legs, you might be interested in talking to your surgeon about calf implants that can give you the fullness you desire. This procedure is an effective way to get rid of chicken legs that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
Wrinkles and fine lines can prematurely age the face. If you feel like you look older than your age, Botox could help. The surgeon can inject it into the problem areas on the face and encourage relaxation in the muscles. This leads to smoother, younger-looking skin that helps knock years off your appearance.

Looser skin with fine lines and wrinkles is a side effect of the aging process. If you are having trouble recognizing your reflection in the mirror, it might be time for a visit to the cosmetic surgery center for a Restylane treatment that can bring big results. Keep reading to get a better understanding of the aging process and how this treatment can help:
A Decrease in Hyaluronic Acid
The body creates certain substances to keep the skin tight and healthy. Hyaluronic acid actually makes the skin fuller and more elastic, but as the body ages, it does not create as much of this acid. This causes the skin to lose its fullness, which leaves it more susceptible to wrinkles and folds that can make a person look even older.
Less Moisture in the Skin
As the skin ages and loses hyaluronic acid and other substances, it cannot hold onto water molecules as well. Once the skin loses water, it does not look as healthy or as firm. Although drinking plenty of water can help keep moisture in the skin, it is not usually enough to reverse these signs of aging.
An Increase in Hyaluronic Acid
One of the reasons that Restylane is so effective is that it adds this missing hyaluronic acid back into the skin. The cosmetic surgeon can give you an injection that goes into the dermis, or the middle layer of the skin, which gives it back the ability to retain moisture. This can eventually reduce the appearance of folds and wrinkles that prematurely age the face. You will begin to notice results almost immediately after your treatment and you can enjoy these results for about six months.
If you are ready to see how Restylane can help you come see Dr. Barbara L. Persons at Persons Plastic Surgery to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment. As one of the Bay Area’s top reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Persons offers you the skin treatments, liposuction, and breast augmentation procedures you need to feel your best.

Fat transfer is a revolutionary cosmetic surgery procedure that restores fullness and helps you look and feel your best. Whether you have a pronounced scar or want to add a little oomph to your buttocks region, this procedure can work for you. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of opting for the fat transfer procedure:
A Versatile Treatment Option
Cosmetic surgeons have found that moving a patient’s own fat cells from one area of the body to another is a solution that works for many different problems. The doctor can take your own fat cells to fill in deep scars or creases, improve the look of sagging cheeks, and even add fullness to lips and brows. Fat transfer can help you look younger and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
A Safe Way to Get Results
Since this procedure uses your own cells, it is a safe way to get the results that you want. Filling in problem areas with your own cells ensures that your body will not reject the transplant. The procedure will not cause an allergic reaction. Fat transfer has been proven as a safe and effective way to add fullness to areas that are lacking.
A Long-Term Solution
Researchers have found that fat transferred to another part of the body can remain there permanently. As much as 70 percent of the fat transferred to trouble zones can survive the procedure in the long-term. If necessary, the doctor can transfer more fat at a later time and give you even more impressive results.
Dr. Barbara L. Persons is here to help you get the cosmetic results that you want. Come to Persons Plastic Surgery today to learn more about treatments like fat transfer, liposuction, breast augmentation, and rhinoplasty. For more information, visit our website or call (925) 297-4614.
