Number Of Men Seeking Facial Plastic Surgery On The Rise in Orange County


The nationwide trend of men seeking facial plastic surgery is evident in Orange County as well. The number of male patients who are seeking cosmetic procedures is rapidly increasing, and has been for the past decade. Dr. Kevin Sadati has been performing procedures specifically tailored to men such as the male rhinoplasty and male facelift, among other facial plastic surgery procedures, for several years now, and offers his male patients both a wealth of experience and the most up-to-date techniques.

"Society has created a pressure on all citizens to look young and beautiful," Dr. Kevin Sadati said. "Not only in Newport Beach and Orange County has it become more socially acceptable for men to have plastic surgery procedures done, but this trend is also on the rise across the entire country."

Recently, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons announced that male facial plastic surgery procedures rose 2 percent, with the most notable fact that male facelift procedures increased 14 percent within one year's time. Men and women both want to look as good as they feel, and men are now taking that next step to correct and reverse the signs of aging.

"It is not only women who feel the need to look good in order to increase their self confidence and awareness of their inner beauty," Dr. Kevin Sadati said. "Men too appreciate feeling young and attractive, and can benefit from many different forms of facial plastic surgery."

Ideal candidates for Male Plastic Surgery Include: At least 17 years of age
Financially prepared
In good overall health—i.e. those who suffer from depression, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease are not good candidates
Realistic outlook on results and realistic cosmetic surgery expectations
Good mental health
A non-smoker (or refrain from smoking 2-4 weeks prior and 2-4 weeks post surgery)
Not a heavy drinker
Willingness to follow pre and post op instructions

Of the vast array of plastic surgery procedures that are available to men, rhinoplasty is one of the most popular and is sought out the most. Many different candidates can benefit from this procedure, but it is important to have realistic expectations when it comes to facial plastic surgery. If any male patient is displeased with his current appearance, and would like to talk to a surgeon about different procedure options, a consultation is the best way to learn what to expect with cosmetic surgery. In addition to rhinoplasty, many male patients can consider other procedures including work on the lower face and neck, eyes, chin and ears as well as Botox and other non-invasives.

"My goal is to make any patient that steps foot in my office feel calm, comfortable and at ease," Dr. Kevin Sadati said. "This includes male patients. Even the toughest guys need to feel great about their own appearances. When a person feels good about the way they look on the outside, they allow their inner beauty to shine through. In addition to physical benefits, there are many emotional health benefits as well when it comes to plastic surgery. This is true not only for my female patients who come to talk with me about their options, but also with many male patients in and around the Newport Beach area. We all want to strive to be our best selves, no matter what gender we are."

Dr. Kevin Sadati is one of the top California facial plastic and ENT surgeons specializing in minimally invasive facial and nasal surgery. He is Board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Otolarynology Head and Neck Surgery (AOBOO-HNS), Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) and a member of the prestigious American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFRS).
