Dermal Fillers for Men: What You Should Know

Men and women can receive dermal fillers, but the injection technique differs to accommodate the facial anatomy of males. 
Although dermal fillers are predominantly marketed toward women, men can also benefit from their restorative and rejuvenating effects. Fillers for men are the exact same as the ones used for women; the difference lies in the treatment area and injection method.

Because men’s facial anatomy is different from women’s, additional care must be taken to avoid overfilling or creating undesirable results.

Men Are Now Using More Fillers

In the past, cosmetic surgery as a whole was largely dominated by female patients. However, in recent years, more men have shown an increase in both preventative and restorative cosmetic procedures.

Fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Belotero® are all popular fillers for men. And, of course, BOTOX®, the neurotoxin injectable, is also frequently used.

It is important to mention that BOTOX is not classified as a filler as it does not restore any lost volume to the face; instead, it immobilizes muscles in treatment areas to provide smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including migraines and lazy eye.

If you are looking to boost plumpness and fill in specific areas on the face, filler is the go-to solution.

Anatomical Differences Matter With Injections

The facial anatomy of men and women differ in many ways; it’s vital that you work with a surgeon who offers men’s treatment. For example, when it comes to filling tear troughs, men have a flatter median cheek, which can lead to more pronounced hollowness as they age and lose fat in the face.

In order to avoid puffiness, the surgeon must make sure to select the best candidates and the right filler for their concerns. An ideal candidate for tear trough filler will have good skin thickness and elasticity. Furthermore, a filler with a thinner consistency is advised to prevent imbalance and an uneven contour.

3 Popular Male Plastic Procedures for International Men’s Day

Hispanic young man wearing casual winter sweater smilingInternational Men’s Day is celebrated annually on November 19th. The day aims to promote positive male role models, celebrate men’s achievements, and support men’s health and well-being.

One way to celebrate International Men’s Day is by considering cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery can help men feel more confident and improve their self-esteem. 

What’s International Men’s Day? 

The International Men’s Day holiday is celebrated every November to recognize and celebrate the achievements of men in cultural, political, and socioeconomic fields. Every year on November 19th, International Men’s Day (IMD) takes place in over 80 countries. 

Why Do We Need An International Men’s Day? 

Well, several issues affect men and boys that need attention. For instance, men are more likely to die by suicide than women, and they are also more likely to be involved in violent crimes. 

Moreover, men are less likely to seek help for mental health issues and are more likely to suffer from work-related stress. By raising awareness of these issues, we can begin to address them and make progress in improving the lives of men and boys.

The Top 3 Male Plastic Surgery Procedures

Plastic surgery is beneficial not only for women but also men. It can help to improve their appearance and boost their confidence. Plastic surgery procedures can benefit men as well. 

Here are three of the most popular male plastic surgery procedures:

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is popular with men looking to enhance their eyes’ appearance. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.

Typically, eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery period. Bruising and swelling are common side effects, but they should resolve within a week.


Rhinoplasty can correct a wide variety of aesthetic concerns, such as a bulbous or misshapen nose, a crooked nose, or a nose that is too large or small in proportion to the rest of the face. In some cases, rhinoplasty can also improve breathing problems.

Hair Transplant

A hair transplant can often help to treat male pattern baldness. Hair transplants are a popular plastic surgery procedure for men. During this surgical procedure, hair is removed from one part of the head and transplanted to another.

Cosmetic Treatments for Rejuvenated Masculine Features

The word “cosmetic” has nearly always been associated with women. Women wear cosmetics, or makeup. For many years, the primary belief was that plastic surgery was also “for women.” This is no longer the predominant thought. As aesthetic medicine has evolved to include less invasive techniques and more natural looking outcomes, the number of men undergoing various procedures and treatments has increased. In 2019 alone, that number was over 1 million. We expect it to continue to climb as men realize there is nothing “girly” about cosmetic treatments, nor their outcomes. Here, we discuss some of the most common aesthetic procedures for men

Facial Rejuvenation 

Many adults become interested in facial rejuvenation procedures as the signs of aging worsen. The goal of treatment is to achieve a more youthful appearance without diminishing the uniqueness of a person’s natural structural features. 

Blepharoplasty for Men

Eyelid rejuvenation has been one of the leading plastic surgery procedures for the past several years. This minimally-invasive surgery may be performed in an outpatient surgery center or the surgeon’s office. It is often performed comfortably using local anesthesia and a mild sedative. Patients need very little downtime after their surgery and are typically ready to go back to work within 2 weeks. Blepharoplasty must be performed carefully for the best results. For men, the blepharoplasty incision may be made slightly different. Skin tightening is also conservative, if done at all after the excision of excess tissue. 

Injectables for Men

Botox and dermal fillers make up the bulk of cosmetic injectable treatments. These techniques are popular because they are conservative, temporary, and convenient. Treatment must be repeated every few months to two years, depending on the product used. To address the signs of aging in men, injectors often use dermal fillers conservatively. Though men’s skin is thicker and may require a higher dose of product, their requests are often for minimal contouring. Our approach to injectables is to tailor dosing to the skin as well as the desired outcome so our patients can enjoy a rejuvenated look that appears completely natural. 

Body Procedures 

Body contouring procedures, like facial procedures, are slightly different for men than women.

Liposuction for Men

Stubborn fat is a frustrating problem that can affect men as easily as it does women. While men tend to find it easier to build muscle thanks to their extra testosterone, mid-life brings changes that can lead to excess fat in various areas. Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure performed in an outpatient surgical center or in-office operative. Patients often need only local anesthetic for optimal comfort. Where people often associate liposuction with abdominal fat, men often seek this procedure to remove unwanted fat from the neck and chin areas. 


Somewhat less common than liposuction, abdominoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that can give a man back the flat, firm midsection he once had. The tummy tuck removes a moderate layer of fatty tissue (anything more requires liposuction) and it trims excess skin that has become loose and saggy. With just a few weeks of recovery, abdominoplasty offers an outcome that can last indefinitely.

Cosmetic treatments can restore a sense of confidence and satisfaction. Contact our Pottsville or Hazleton office for more information about cosmetic treatments for men.

It’s Not Too Late for an Amazing Father’s Day Gift

As much as you may appreciate the man in your life, he may be incredibly difficult to shop for. Moms are relatively easy to please; just pick up a lusciously-scented candle or body lotion and she’s smiling for months. Dads, on the other hand, leave us guessing. Come Father’s Day or any other occasion on which a special guy could receive some love, we’re often left scratching our head. Here, we want to point out that it’s not too late to recognize the man in your life in a big way.

Recent studies have confirmed something we’ve overlooked for years, that men are, in fact, interested in looking good. We call this beauty in any other realm, but not when it comes to men. Therefore, we may don’t connect the dots between gifts for Dad and beauty. We should. In our offices, Dad could be treated to a number of convenient treatments that bring out his best.

Smooth the Skin

The general appearance of a man’s skin can be affected by two things: aging and hair. We’ve got solutions for both:

  • Reveal Dad’s smoothest skin by eliminating unwanted hair in a semi-permanent way. Laser hair removal disables the hair follicles so they cannot produce hair. Results can last indefinitely, though a few follicles may become active over time. After just one treatment, smoother, hair-free skin can be seen. Lasting results are achieved with a series of treatments.
  • To address the signs of aging line persistent frown lines or worry lines on the forehead, more men are turning to Botox. Treatment takes less than an hour and achieves results that last 3 to 6 months. Dad need not worry, he’ll still look like himself, just younger.

Refresh the Face and Body

  • As we age, it can become more difficult to work off extra pounds. Our Liposonix treatment is a great gift idea for the guy who doesn’t have hours to spend in the gym each day. A series of treatments provokes the natural elimination of fatty deposits like love handles.
  • Nonsurgical skin tightening revives the fibroblast cells that make skin-firming collagen. As an alternative, we can help Dad restore his angular jawline with a minimally-invasive thread lift. Both treatments are conducted in the office and incur little to no downtime.

Reframing the way we look at beauty as it relates to the average man can open doors to the best gift-giving ever. Call our Hazleton or Pottsville office to learn more about treatments Dad might love.

Why Men Don’t Get the Average Facelift

Male Cosmetic Procedures Hazleton, PA

Male Cosmetic Procedures Hazleton, PA It is a complete misconception that only women get plastic surgery. Recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons indicate that 15% of the patients who get facelifts are men. This adds up to approximately 12,000 men during the past year alone. We are pleased to offer professional services to men in the areas of Philadelphia, Allentown, and more. Performing facelifts, we are particularly mindful of the nuances that make a man’s face unique.

Facial Hair

One of the most significant differences between the facelift for the male face and the female face is hair. Even if men shave every day, the hair on their face is usually thick and coarse or curly compared to the fine “peach fuzz” on women’s faces. For hair to be thick and curly, hair follicles are generally larger, which means we have to take special care to place incisions where they will not dramatically disrupt hair growth even if minor scars form after surgery.

The male face is generally stronger and more angular. The reason this is so is that there is a stronger support structure of ligaments beneath the skin. The strength of the facial ligaments poses a challenge to facelift surgery; we must be careful to not overcompensate for laxity by tightening the skin and superficial muscle aggressively.

Men also have thicker skin and overall more weight to their face than women. In particular, the jaw area is where most men desire refinement during facelift surgery. The weight and sharpness of the male face present a unique opportunity for an experienced surgeon to restore a competitive, youthful appearance without creating softness at the jawline.

There is truth to the belief that most cosmetic surgery procedures are performed on women. However, there is no reason why any man who desires a refresher for his face or body cannot obtain appropriate treatment. Our experienced team understands the nuances of male and female facial structure and is therefore capable of performing a meticulous procedure through which outstanding results are achieved.

Cosmetic Surgery, the New Go-To for Men

Male Cosmetic Procedures PACosmetic plastic surgery is a field of medicine that has largely served the needs of women who desire to feel more confident in their appearance. It isn’t so much that men have been left out of trends in aesthetic medicine; more like they didn’t quite have the freedom to talk about their concerns and desires related to appearance. Just over the past few decades, this is something that is changing. The number of men obtaining some type of cosmetic treatment has increased over 300%. This demonstrates an incredible turn toward openness, and also improvements in treatment options tailored to men’s needs.

Slim and Sculpted

Men don’t necessarily want to just be slim. Many of the men we meet express frustration in the results they have obtained with diet and exercise. A common problem that has become a hot topic of discussion of late is gynecomastia – man boobs, as it is often referred to. According to statistics, the number of men treated for gynecomastia in 2015 equated to almost half of all breast reduction procedures that year. The procedure continues to increase in popularity as men realize they do not have to live in a body that does not reflect their masculinity.

To be slim and sculpted does not center only on having the appropriate curvature across the chest. Men of all ages whose bodies are not responding as they would like to healthy habits are choosing to refine their contours with liposuction. This targeted fat-removing procedure is often performed on the abdomen and love handles, but may also be used elsewhere for shedding the uppermost layer of fat that is hiding muscles.

From Chubby to Chiseled

One of the most common procedures sought by men in recent years has nothing to do with body contouring and everything to do with the jaw line. Both age and genetics play a part in the development of the jaw line. Men who would like to restore that chiseled, angular appearance may do so by removing loose skin and fatty deposits from the neck. Neck lift surgery in combination with chin liposuction can do this quickly and with little downtime.

With offices in Hazleton and Pottsville, our friendly staff is able to serve patients from a wide regional area. Learn more about male cosmetic surgery and other treatments when you schedule a consultation with us.

3 Cosmetic Procedures for Ultimate The Manly Man

Cosmetic Procedures for menWhen it comes to getting plastic or cosmetic surgery done, there is  a false— but common— misconception that it is only for women. However, although many men may think they are perfect, the majority of them have a few physical flaws that they would like to have reconstructed or changed. Luckily, Dr. Robert Kimmel at Keystone Cosmetic Surgery Center specializes in not only cosmetic procedures for females, but for males too. From an abdominoplasty to liposuction, this article will discuss just a few of the procedures that are popular among our male patients. Read on to learn more.

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that is used in order to get rid of excess skin and fat around the abdominal region. Usually combined with liposuction, an abdominoplasty will help to give you more of that manly, chiseled look you are going for. Additionally, the great thing about a tummy tuck is that it is also helpful for men who have recently lost a lot of weight and have excess skin that needs to be removed.

Gynecomastia is a surgical procedure that is used to get rid of excess fat and tissue that reside on a man’s breasts. Sometimes, either due to weight gain/loss or the excessive use of steroids, men grow breast tissue which can make them look and feel a bit more feminine that they desire. Luckily, Dr. Robert Kimmel can remove that excess tissue and fat in order to significantly reduce the appearance of male breasts and hel pyou to gain your confidence back once again.

Just like most cosmetic procedures, liposuction is typically associated with a more female audience. But, you guessed it, Dr. Robert Kimmel also offers liposuction for males as well. If you have been spending way too much time at the gym and have been dieting like a fool but you still can’t get rid of certain areas of fat, then you should consider liposuction.  As a great way to get rid of stubborn fat around the abdomen, legs, and arms, liposuction involves surgically scraping away fat and vacuuming it up with a surgical device.

If you are a male who would like to make some cosmetic changes or alterations to your body, contact Dr. Robert Kimmel at Keystone Cosmetic Surgery Center today to set up a consultation.

Male Hair Restoration at Keystone Surgery Center

As men begin to age, it is very common for most to experience some level of hair loss or hairline thinning.  Sometimes this condition is inherited, but can also result from stress, hormonal imbalances or medications that you may be taking.

hair-248050_1280For some men hair loss is viewed as an acceptable part of life and the aging process.  However, there are many that grow increasingly dissatisfied with their hair loss and change in physical appearance.  For these patients, hair restoration may provide the perfect solution.

Over the last several decades, much progress has been made regarding the technology behind treatment for male hair loss. One of the most popular techniques for treatment is follicular unit hair restoration. Follicular unit hair restoration involves the removal of a thin strip of hair-bearing scalp from the back of the head. The hairs are then removed from the donor strip and then transplanted into the area where hair has been lost.

During the procedure you will be awake and comfortable, receiving anesthesia where necessary to eliminate pain.

Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals by enhancing your appearance and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle.

A Quick Look on the Increasing Number of Male Breast Reduction Surgeries

According to the recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, male breast reduction made it into the top 5 surgical cosmetic procedures for men in 2012. Here at our Hazleton male plastic surgery practice, we won’t be surprised if male breast reduction will be a notch higher in the top 5 list once the 2013 statistics will be revealed. After all, we have a noticed a significant increase in the number of men who visit our clinic for breast removal brought about by gynecomastia or abnormal enlargement of breasts in men.

More Than Just Self-Esteem Issues

According to a study published in the April 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), enlarged breasts in male teens has a negative impact on their self-esteem. Furthermore, head researcher Dr. Brian A. Labow stated that  “merely having gynecomastia was sufficient to cause significant deficits in general health, social functioning, mental health, self-esteem, and eating behaviors and attitudes compared with controls (boys without breast enlargement).”

When to Consider Male Breast Reduction at Keystone Surgery Center

By and large, you are an ideal candidate for a male breast reduction procedure if you notice abnormal enlargement of your breasts. In addition, you should:

  • be relatively within your ideal weight
  • have realistic expectations of the procedure
  • have no existing conditions that could delay healing and/or life-threatening
  • be a non-smoker or has quit smoking months before the procedure

Your Male Breast Reduction Consultation

A consultation with an experienced male breast reduction surgeon will help you figure out whether or not you are qualified to undergo the surgery. Aside from an assessment of your medical history, a thorough physical exam will be done, too.
