Although women continue to dominate when it comes to undergoing plastic surgery, more than ever men are proving that they desire cosmetic enhancements as well. Just like women, they have “problem areas” too – places on the body where diet and exercise do not improve.  Many men are also unhappy with the lines and wrinkles that have come with aging, and realize that over-the-counter products can only take them so far. Although women may be more likely to talk amongst one another about their self-consciousness, men are still going forward with a cosmetic procedure to enhance one or more parts of the body.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the top five cosmetic surgeries among men in 2011 were: nose reshaping (62,000), eyelid surgery (29,000), liposuction (23,000), breast reduction (20,000), and facelift surgery (11,000). The top five non-surgical cosmetic procedures that men underwent last year were: Botox® (363,000), laser hair removal (186,000), microdermabrasion (166,000), chemical peels (88,000), and soft tissue fillers (87,000). At his New York plastic surgery practice, Dr. Taranow offers both male and female patients several surgical and non-surgical options.

The type of procedure or treatment you decide on will be based on your particular cosmetic needs; therefore, in order to provide you with an optimal outcome and a new look. Dr. Taranow will need to meet with you for a consultation in order to discuss the various factors involved with your procedure(s) of choice. After learning about your specific interests, he may create a individualized treatment plan.

Whether you’re interested in liposuction to remove fat deposits from certain areas of the body for a more masculine appearance or wish to gain a more youthful look with the use of Botox or a soft tissue filler, Dr. Taranow looks forward to providing you with great satisfaction and natural-looking, rewarding results.
