Dermal filler isn’t just for sunken eyes or plumping lips. Sometimes dermal fillers
can be truly life-changing. Surgery for a cancer in his parotoid gland left this man with a large indentation in one side of his face. The indent in his left cheek became a constant reminder of the treatments he endured. Continue reading
Stepping up to the sink in the morning, you wonder when your beard turned so gray. As you peer into the mirror, you notice the fine lines around your mouth are growing deeper. Your spouse walks by and asks what you’re so mad about but it’s just the pronounced furrow in your brow that makes her wonder. Adding to this are sagging cheeks and under-eye bags, which make you look tired and, quite frankly, old. It didn’t use to be this way! Continue reading
Although cosmetic surgery is primarily a female-dominated industry, in this day and age where appearance is everything, it’s no surprise that male cosmetic treatments are also on the rise. Whether it is to maintain a youthful look, or to get rid of problem areas, men are becoming more comfortable acknowledging cosmetic treatments as a means to feel more confident.
Understandably, a skin cancer on the face or lips can be very upsetting for many patients. At Eden, Dr Edinburg treats many people with facial skin cancers each year and most are very concerned about possible disfigurement and scarring.
Dr Edinburg uses his extensive facial reconstructive surgery expertise to achieve the best possible health outcome and aesthetic results for his patients. Dr Edinburg finds great reward in being able to help patients who need reconstructive surgery after skin cancer. Continue reading
It’s a common misconception that only women are concerned with the appearance of their neck area. The skin on the neck is one of the first areas to develop wrinkles, but is often the last place we treat. Exercise and gaining muscle definition will help to fill out skin that is starting to loosen, but an area that is almost impossible to tighten through lifestyle changes is the neck. For many men who want to reinvigorate their appearance, getting rid of the extra weight that has accumulated in the neck area can turn back the clock and rejuvenate a ‘tired’ appearance.
GEORGE’S STORY: Whilst usually not concerned over things of a cosmetic nature, George was always wary of his “turkey neck”, which had developed throughout the years and eventually became the only thing he could see when he looked into the mirror. George often found himself shaking his head from side to side just to watch the way his neck would wobble in the reflection.
Dr Edinburg:“When I first met George, it was a few years back and he had come to see me for a minor procedure. At the time George did raise the issue of his neck and wanted to know what I could do to help improve the situation. I recommended a Neck Lift and immediately George dismissed the idea.
Traditionally, people often associate cosmetic surgery with something only women are interested in but nowadays, increasingly more men are keen to maintain a youthful look as well. I have had quite a few male patients come see me for a wide array of cosmetic procedures and for different reasons too. However most of the time, just like my female patients, they have the same goals – that is, to look younger, look their best and feel more confident. Interestingly for some, it’s also about maintaining a competitive edge in their work place so that they can compete with the younger looking guys.
Ultimately whatever your reason is, my job is to ensure you are well informed prior to any procedure and that you are 100% comfortable with your decision. Below, I’ve listed some of the most popular male cosmetic procedures I’ve seen in my practice.
COSMETIC INJECTIONS FOR MEN
A lot of male patients simply want a quick refresh on their facial features and they’re looking to reduce some of the wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet that may have popped up over time. Cosmetic Injections like Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers are great for tackling these concerns – they’re non-invasive, quick and effective. From one treatment, you will notice smoother skin and reduced lines. Of course, to maintain results, you will need to continue treatments.

It’s common knowledge that the corporate environment is highly competitive and absolutely cut-throat. In a world where a youthful appearance and assertive body language gets you everywhere, how do you stay ahead of the curve as you age?
According to a recent report by Out, Plastic Surgeons based in Los Angeles have been noticing a different type of clientele frequenting their offices. Where Plastic Surgery was originally utilised by the rich and famous, there has been a recent trend of corporate executives in their 40’s and 50’s coming in to take advantage of the services provided.
The objective? To compete with their younger colleagues and to stay ahead of the game! As indicated by the article, many corporate executives believe that appearance and the manner in which they present themselves can have a direct effect on the upward mobility of their job.
Interestingly, these corporate executives are also mostly men, putting rest to the theory that Cosmetic Surgery is a service that only women take advantage of. Demand from the male clientele has never been higher and at the Eden Institute; we are observing a similar trend, with more male patients coming in to see Dr Edinburg for rejuvenation procedures.
Signs of ageing such as heavy bags under the eyes, drooping eyelids and tummy bulges are top concerns for many. Here are some possible procedures to keep you on top of your game.
