Men and Facial Plastic Surgery

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon for Men

In the last decade alone, men have taken a huge interest in their appearance. Men of all ages and all walks of life have begun to seek out plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons. Most men have specific goals in mind: a more “masculine” appearance, a balanced nose and/or profile, and an overall rejuvenated face. With facial hair, thicker skin, and a greater risk for certain complications, men must first find a certified and trusted plastic surgeon and then fully understand all considerations of elective cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Maurice Khosh of Manhattan, New York, understands the composition of male skin. Male facial skin has a richer blood supply than female facial skin, causing men to bleed more during surgery and being at a greater risk for pooling of blood under the skin. It is vital that men who are interested in cosmetic facial surgery seek out a surgeon who understands the structure of male skin and who is highly experienced in male plastic surgery.

Men often find it more difficult to hide any scarring on their face. While women can often style their hair in certain ways or use makeup to cover scars, it is more difficult (and less socially accepted) for men to do so. When choosing procedures to undergo, it is important to ask questions about any visible scars that will develop once healing is complete. As men age, hair loss is quite common. Men who have a facelift during their 30s or 40s must consider that scars at the hairline may become obvious as they lose hair while getting older.

Dr. Maurice Khosh understands the unique characteristics of male facial skin and bone structure. During your consultation, Dr. Khosh will listen closely to your areas of concern or dissatisfaction in order to proceed with a plan that will provide optimal results. Dr. Khosh will evaluate your entire head-face-neck region: your chin line, bone structure, how full are your sideburns, is your hair receding, how far does beard growth extend down the neck and up the cheeks, do you have facial scarring, is acne a problem, is there sun damage to the face, and is the neck skin loose or drooping?

Anyone considering facial plastic surgery needs to make their first priority choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon that s/he can trust. Men must also choose a plastic surgeon who is qualified and highly-practiced in male plastic surgery. Dr. Maurice Khosh has extensive qualifications and is a renowned plastic surgeon who you can trust for exceptional results and unmatched personal care.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
