Facial Plastic Surgery for Men in Honolulu, Hawaii
Facial rejuvenation: Facelifts, Necklifts, Browlifts, Eyelifts
Facial rejuvenation is becoming increasingly popular for men. Scars in the male face are more difficult to conceal in men due to hair patterns. Masculine facial features also need to be preserved. It’s important to select a surgeon such as Dr. Ching that understands these factors so that you can achieve natural results.
Dr. Ching is specially trained in endoscopic surgery, also known as “keyhole surgery”. In select patients, rejuvenation of the face can be done through these minimal incisions. This type of surgery offers decreased downtime and minimal scarring.
Browlifts are commmonly done in conjunction with eyelid lifts to give a younger appearance to the upper face. In these procedures, the eyebrows are elevated to a higher position consistent with their appearance prior to aging. Excess skin and fat of the eyelids is removed and repositioned to reverse the effects of aging in these areas.
Facelifts combined with necklifts are needed to rejuvenate the lower face. Male facelifts require a special understanding of the proportions and facial features of the male face. In these procedures, excess skin and fat is removed from the face using incisions around the ear. The deeper layer of the face, known as the SMAS, is also tightened with special suturing. SMAS repositioning is considered the hallmark of modern facelift surgery.
The recovery from facial surgery ranges between 1 to 2 weeks.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is also very common in men. The bridge of the nose can be raised with a silicone implant to result in a more masculine shape. The tip of the nose can be reshaped with cartilage grafts taken from the ear in cases where the tip of the nose is deficient. In other cases, noses are reduced in size.
The bridge of the nose can be lowered or a hump on the bridge can be removed. Nasal tips that are too wide can also be refined. Dr. Ching understands the need to keep certain proportions of your nose within masculine ideals.
We are pleased to offer imaging software that can give you an idea of what you would look like after nose surgery.
Recovery from rhinoplasty is usually 2 weeks.
Botox Treatments for Men
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the single most effective alternative to cosmetic surgery available for facial rejuvenation. Safe and reliable, it is most commonly used to soften the frown lines between the eyebrows and the furrows in the forehead. Botox can also be used to create a gentle and pleasing elevation of the brow. Botox can enlarge the upper lip and decrease the fine lines around the mouth.
Botox can also the reduce the prominence of the jaw.
It may also be used to prevent formation of facial lines before they even appear. Used in combination with soft tissue fillers such as Restylane®, BOTOX® Cosmetic will work to create a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime. Botox usually lasts approximately 6 months.
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in the skin) in the form of a crystal-clear gel. This product is used to treat fine facial lines and deep wrinkles. Restylane is also an excellent filler to enlarge your lips. Another common area is the line that starts on the side of the nose and ends beside the mouth (the nasolabial fold).
Restylane is often used in conjunction with Botox in the frown lines between the eyebrows.
