Our male patients are very important to us. We offer our full complement of services to you to find the best solution to restore your confidence and make years melt away.
Nearly a third of men surveyed said they have considered facial plastic surgery to stay competitive in the workforce, compared to 10% of women.
One day you look in the mirror and realize that time, gravity, sun exposure, hair loss and heredity have taken a toll and you simply do not look like yourself any more.
From injectables, face lifts, chin lifts, rhinoplasty (nose restructuring), laser treatments, facials, skin tightening, etc. to hair regrowth or transplantation, we offer a litany of services to treat aging concerns for men in a private, discrete environment. You can make a quick visit to our office for a consultation or some of our procedures and you’ll be back to work for your afternoon meeting. Some other anti-aging surgeries, procedures and hair transplants take longer to recover.
If you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, facelift surgery may be right for you. The facelift procedure continues to evolve over the years; the procedure has changed from simple skin lifting to more complex deeper plane lifting techniques. Facelift cosmetic surgery (or Rhytidectomy) is the hidden secret to eternal youthfulness. As we age, we begin to see the effects of enjoying the sun and the inevitable pull of gravity. But what if there was a way to turn back time? The facelift procedure can shave off those years or wear and tear, and make you look great for your age. With one procedure, you will have long-lasting results. Unlike injectables or heavy skin cream, a facelift procedure lasts five+ years and in some cases, up to ten years (sometimes with the aid of injectables).
NECK LIFT (Lower Rhytidectomy)
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
These improvements include:
- Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
- Excess fatty deposits under the chin
- Loose neck skin
- Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours
A traditional neck lift incision often begins in the hairline at the level of the sideburn, continues down and around the ear and ends in the posterior hair. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the jowls and neck. The tissue underlying the neck skin is redraped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away. A separate incision under the chin is often necessary for the liposuction of this area and for the repair of the muscle.
A limited incision neck lift may involve incisions only around the ear. While the incisions are shorter, the results may be more limited.
A waddle removal excision involves a long incision from under the chin to the throat, excess skin and tissue are removed and closed with tiny incisions.
Hair loss can be a very emotional part of the natural aging process, and seeking ways to curb this process used to be a challenge. Until NeoGraft™, FDA Approved “State-of-the-Art” Solution for Hair Loss. NeoGraft’s™ advanced technology offers a discrete solution to hair loss, allowing patients to achieve natural looking results with no linear scar, minimal downtime and a shorter recovery period.
In addition to the grafting, the use of Protein Rich Plasma (PRP) with its abundant growth hormones derived from your own blood has proven to be an enhancement to the transplantation process. For those with thinning hair, your PRP can be micro-needled or injected into the scalp to strengthen hair follicles and promote regrowth.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), what’s driving the willingness and desire to have cosmetic procedures? Their survey “indicates ‘selfies’ and other social media images are putting on display and magnifying perceived imperfections. In fact, 22% of respondents indicated they were frustrated and motivated to aesthetically change because of their pictures on social media.
Photographs on social media can deliver a distorted image of reality, holding up a magnifying glass to flaws, real or perceived. This is causing plastic surgery requests to skyrocket in both teens as well as adults.
Interestingly, men, at 31%, were more concerned about looking better in their selfies than women, at 19%.
Despite the decreases in specific procedural areas, one thing is abundantly clear: The number of men flocking to plastic surgeons for both surgical and nonsurgical procedures continues to increase dramatically and are up 43% this year alone,” states Michael Edwards, MD, President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Over the past 5 years, (since 2010), there have been significant increases in the following procedures for men:
Botulinum Toxin-Botox(up 84%)
Hyaluronic Acid (up 94%)
Nonsurgical skin tightening (up 37%)
Intense Pulsed Light (up 44%)
Since ASAPS began collecting statistical data in 1997, there has been a 273% increase in the number of procedures performed on men. “This is not a trend we expect to see wane anytime soon. Facing a challenging and sometimes ageist job market, men, like women, are starting to consider their options to maintain a youthful appearance that exudes exuberance and energy and the full spectrum of care offered by board-certified plastic surgeons caters to their individual needs,” explains James Grotting, MD.
Dr. Hochman understands these issues and has the education and expertise as a double Board certified facial plastic surgeon, head and neck surgeon and hair specialist with decades of experience; a master at anti-aging procedures and surgeries. Patients still look like “themselves”, only better! You will look refreshed, rejuvenated and feel more confident. “Soften your lines, not your edge”

Never shave or tweeze again! Remove unwanted hair with the most advanced FDA-approved laser technology for ALL skin types. Laser hair removal is safe, comfortable, and effective. Advanced technology used by our medical professional at Med Aesthetics Skin & Laser Spa for REAL results!
“Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas. Benefits of laser hair removal include:Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.”
Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.
Predictability. Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.
What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal
Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.” WebMD – “Laser Hair Removal”
