Plastic Surgery Blog: Men Need To Wear Sunscreen Too!

Friday, June 15th, 2012

balding man Plastic Surgery Blog: Men Need To Wear Sunscreen Too!It is not uncommon to hear men say emphatically that they don’t believe they need to wear sunscreen. There are a number of reasons why they have this belief, but none of them are correct. According to a recent local article the Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that in excess of 90 percent of malignant skin cancer is directly related to excessive exposure to the sun with little, if any at all sunscreen being used. Studies have proven that daily use of sunscreen can lessen your risk of developing melanoma by up to 50 percent or more. Men who are bald or balding, including those with thinning hair or a receding hairline need to be especially careful in the summer months to be certain that their scalp is adequately covered. The scalp is often overlooked and is a part of the body that is largely vulnerable to both the UVA and UVB sun rays. It’s critical for men to make sunscreen part of their daily regimen. One way to help make sunscreen a routine is to keep it close to your toothbrush or razor, and to utilize a sunscreen product that contains an SPF 50-plus. Another method is to utilize sunscreen as an aftershave, and making sure to apply it to both the scalp and ears. Dr. Stuart Kincaid consults with men who are concerned with aging of the face. Often this is due to many years of neglecting the use of sunscreen. Some men are concerned that they may not be a candidate for a facelift due to thinning hair or a receding hairline. Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains that with his skill and surgical expertise he makes an effort to suggest facial rejuvenation procedures that will keep incisions well hidden. Dr. Stuart Kincaid may recommend an endoscopic brow lift which would keep incisions very small. As men age many can also benefit from a blepharoplasty which Dr. Stuart Kincaid will typically perform at the same time. Men should be diligent about maintaining their best appearance.

New Year, new plastic surgery trends

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012
Picture 115 205x300 New Year, new plastic surgery trends

New Year's resolutions often come with determination to live -- and look -- our best/Source: ASAPS

As the New Year begins, plastic surgeons are predicting the hot new plastic surgery industry trends for 2012.  Will popular non-invasive procedures like Botox hold their rank at the top of the charts? Or will injectables make way for a new beauty trend?  The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery predicts the 2011 Botox frenzy will continue into 2012; but aside from injectables, experts believe more men will seek cosmetic changes.  In 2011, men made up just eight percent of cosmetic procedure patients; but this could be the year that men embrace their interest in cosmetic enhancement and ageless, flawless skin.

The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that Botox, an injectable gel that softens fine lines and wrinkles, was the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in 2010, with more than 2.4 million people undergoing the treatment.  This year, potential patients could get a bonus: as another injectable makes its way into the market, experts predict the cost of injectables will drop.  Right now Botox is the most well known injectable, with Dysport gaining name recognition.  Now, Xeomin is the new kid on the block.  It contains the same ingredients as Botox and Dysport and works the same way, but carries a lower price tag that is likely to attract consumers and raise the competitive stakes.  Denise Mann, editorial director for several plastic surgery information websites says, “Expect to see rebates, price drops and Groupons galore as companies and surgeons vie for your business.”

This year could also mark an advancement in Botox.  Researchers are working on a Botox cream that would be applied topically to the face.  Reports show the product is in the testing phases and, according to Health Day, tests are going well. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will have to sign off on the cream before it’s available for public use.

Erasing fine lines, unsightly wrinkles and unwanted fat this year – for men and women alike

Botox won’t be the only thing making headlines in 2012.  Experts predict more men will undergo plastic surgery.  Polls show that the American public considers plastic surgery more acceptable than it has in the past.  Combine this new acceptance with procedures that take little recovery time, and it could be enough to inspire a spike in men’s plastic surgery. Liposuction and nose jobs are the top two procedures men go after, but male patients have also been known to indulge in a little Botox (or Bro-tox as some call it).

If you or someone you know – male or female – has resolved to achieve the youthful, sleek look they’ve always wanted this year, now is the time to begin researching cosmetic plastic surgeons in your area to schedule a consultation, discuss your options, and determine the product or procedure that’s best for you. At the San Diego plastic surgery offices of Dr. Stuart B. Kincaid, we offer compassionate consultations for patients of all ages and genders, and make it a priority to help our clients make the best choices for their own bodies, lifestyles and desired results. Pair that with over 27 years of industry experience, unparalleled medical training and countless consumer awards and peer-board memberships, and you’ll find the Dr. Kincaid’s practice is the ideal starting point for looking and feeling your best for 2012.

Plastic surgery and the gender divide: aesthetic enhancement no longer restricted to female patients

Friday, November 4th, 2011
Picture 2 300x147 Plastic surgery and the gender divide: aesthetic enhancement no longer restricted to female patients

Well-groomed elegance is making a comeback for men in today's society/Source: AMC

Most women are pretty straightforward about the things they would change about their appearance. They can rattle off a list of problem areas and what they would like done about it faster than you can blink an eye — but in most cases, it’s just not the same for men.  When a man wants to look his best for a big promotion or a night out on the town, he probably won’t admit it out loud.  But while it is more socially acceptable for women to swap beauty tips, an article written by the Huffington Post shows that members of the opposite sex are just as concerned with their looks.

“In one of the biggest signs that men are more image-conscious, the number of chemical peels, laser hair removal and other cosmetic procedures on men is up 45 percent since 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons,” the article stated.  “Back in the day, guys cared more about working hard and providing than having a hairy chest or a beer belly,” said Brian McCarthy, 32, a Philadelphian who works out regularly and uses hair pomade. “Guys worry more about their appearance than they used to.”

In the last five years marketing agencies have made a big push to get more male consumers.  Dove has come out with their own men’s line of skin products and Weight Watchers has rolled out commercials to appeal to the macho man who wants to lose the love handles.  But despite these shifts, there’s still a fine line that marketers and manufacturers must walk to attract their new target audience.  After all, how do you encourage men to use products that are considered “girly?”

Then again, perhaps it’s not as tricky as we might think: many marketers are having success attracting men to their grooming and body care products, and while every company claims their creative ads did the trick it may not be the only reason for the up tick in male customers.  Some believe there is a shift happening in society, where pop culture is reinforcing the ideal image of the good-looking men.  The Lone Ranger is not the iconic man anymore; and fashionable men like Ryan Seacrest, Kanye West and even the charmingly retro, dapper Don Draper from “Mad Men” are taking over.

Changing times call for changing measures: find a surgeon who gets the picture for safe, satisfying results

These pop icons are making it okay for men to concentrate on their image, to have a cabinet full of hair products and to look into cosmetic surgeries that can improve their appearance.  Laser hair removal, eyelid surgery, Botox and liposuction topped the list of most popular cosmetic procedures for men in 2010; and many believe the trend will only continue.

At the offices of San Diego surgeon Dr. Stuart B. Kincaid, men and women are equally welcome to come in, sit down, and discuss their aesthetic goals with our friendly, compassionate staff. Dr. Kincaid is dedicated to providing the best in top-quality, cutting edge cosmetic enhancement and surgical care; and as a man with over 27 years of experience in the industry, he can provide unparalleled expertise and service to patients of every age and gender.

Plastic surgery blog: Choosing the right plastic surgeon; a man ‘s choice

Friday, October 28th, 2011

man in fitted jeans1 Plastic surgery blog: Choosing the right plastic surgeon; a man s choiceIn this day and age the modern-day man has as much pressure to look good and youthful as modern-day women. In a competitive job market and a divorce rate that is over 50% it is likely that men will find themselves in situations where looks matter. As aging becomes less accepted for men(when is the last time that you heard someone call a man’s wrinkles distinguished?) men are turning to cosmetic plastic surgery as a viable option for maintaining their best appearance.  Dr. Stuart Kincaid  understands the male patient population and carefully tailors every consultation to each patient and their specific needs.  Men who are considering plastic surgery often do not know where to start.Dr. Stuart Kincaid is careful to explain male procedures like gynecomastia( excessive male breast tissue)  and the benefits of having the procedure including the fact that it is performed on an outpatient basis.  Men are typically most concerned with the time it will take to recover and get back to work and working out.  Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains the most patients can return to a desk type job after surgery within 5 to 7 days.  There may be restrictions if the patient has a job that includes heavy lifting. Most men can return to their workout routine slowly after one week, and completely after 4 to 6 weeks. Dr. Stuart Kincaid commonly combines this procedure with abdominal liposuction.  This helps men to obtain a toned abdomen and svelte looking waistline. Men should also be diligent about the safety of the facility and credentials of their plastic surgeon. Dr. Stuart Kincaid is an ASPS board-certified plastic surgeon and surgical procedures are performed and a fully accredited licensed surgical facility. As more men choose plastic surgery the overall expectation of a man’s aging appearance will be to look younger longer.Dr. Stuart Kincaid is committed to helping them every step of the way.

Plastic surgery blog:Fathers struggle to balance life stress too!

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

father and baby Plastic surgery blog:Fathers struggle to balance life stress too!Being a father can bring the same stresses into life as being a mother. Often times, men will put off taking care of their appearance with the excuse that they are busy with work and the kids. Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains to his male patients that the best time to address cosmetic concerns, even for men, is as soon as they become a concern to the patient. For men common areas of complaint include a big abdomen with love handles, and excessive male breast tissue which make it difficult to feel confident in a fitted shirt. Dr. Stuart Kincaid recommends liposuction of the abdomen, lower back and love handles which will help to create a much more fit and toned looking waist.Gynecomastia surgery will help to reduce the male breast tissue and create a flat and more aesthetically pleasing chest. Just because a man becomes a father it doesn’t mean he should not look great!  According to CBS 8 most working fathers say they want to share child-raising duties equally with their spouse/partner, but a lot of them admit that they aren’t actually doing so, a new survey shows.

The findings suggest that many dads are conflicted about finding a work-family balance, according to researchers at the Boston College Center for Work & Family.

The survey of nearly 1,000 American fathers with professional careers found that the respondents rated job security and flexible working hours as more important than high income and good advancement opportunities.

balding man 2 1 Plastic surgery blog:Prostate screenings now recommended at 40

Men need to pay close attention to their health and appearance especially after 40

common cancer affecting males, after skin. One in every six American men will be diagnosed with the disease at some point in their lives. There are more than 217,000 new cases each year.

The American Urologic Association now recommends that men be screened for prostate cancer at age 40, rather than 50. A free seminar on prostate cancer, its treatment and prevention, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 23 with Dr. Christopher Kane, chief of the division of urology at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center in La Jolla.

Michael Haynes , National Football League Hall of Famer and prostate cancer survivor, will be there to share his personal story.

Dr. Stuart Kincaid consults with male patients and informs them  that just as screenings are recommended at a younger age so is the time to begin maintaining youthful skin.  Man can benefit tremendously from medical grade skin care. Often times men will neglect wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. These can be treated with Botox or Dysport very effectively. If there is loose skin on the eyelids a blepharoplasty may be needed. Dr. Stuart Kincaid is careful to maintain a natural appearance so that men will feel more comfortable having these procedures done.

Plastic surgery blog:Men have encouraging results using radiation to treat prostate cancer

Monday, June 7th, 2010
mature man1 Plastic surgery blog:Men have encouraging results using radiation to treat prostate cancer

Men need to take care of their health inside and out

According to Sign on San Diego a new study shows promising results for radiation used for treating prostate cancer. 

Doctors are reporting a key advance in treating men with cancer that has started to spread beyond the prostate: survival is significantly better if radiation is added to standard hormone treatments.

Results of the study were given Sunday at a cancer conference, where other research showed that an experimental drug boosted survival for women with very advanced breast cancer . The drug is being reviewed by the federal Food and Drug Administration.

The prostate study has the potential to change care right away. About 20 percent of the nearly 200,000 men diagnosed with the disease each year in the United States are like those in the study – with cancer that has spread to the area around the prostate.

Dr Stuart Kincaid reminds his male patients that mens health is important inside and out! Male patients should have a complete physical like their female counterparts annually.  Men should also maintain their best appearance outside as well. Not just for vanity, but for their over all health. Dr Stuart Kincaid performs gynecomastia surgery for men with excessive breast tissue. Many men  have lived their whole lives with this embarrassing condition. After surgey most men are thrilled with the results and wished they would not have waited so long to have the surgery.

Plastic surgery blog:Tragic death in Tijuana reminds us of the seriousness of plastic surgery

Thursday, May 27th, 2010
doctors operating Plastic  surgery blog:Tragic death in Tijuana reminds us of the seriousness of plastic surgery

Plastic surgery procedures are serious and all risk should be considered

Since we are close to the border the allure of cheap surgery is very tempting. According to Sign On San Diego a Tijuana cosmetic surgery clinic where a Chula Vista woman died a week ago following a liposuction procedure has been shut down temporarily by Baja California health inspectors.

The Millennium Cosmetic & Laser Institute in Tijuana’s Rio Zone was found to have “several irregularities,” including deficiencies in the operating areas and in record-keeping procedures, a spokesman for the Baja California Health Department said Friday. In addition, the clinic’s director, Dr. Louis May Villanueva, was asked to present additional documentation of his medical credentials, the spokesman said.

The inspection was triggered by reports of the death of Maria de Lourdes Trinidad Mendivil, 48, who went to the clinic May 22 to remove pockets of fat in her abdomen. May performed the procedure

Dr Stuart Kincaid explains to his patients the  importance of  ASPS board certification. While any MD can perform plastic surgery procedures, the ASPS is  the only board speciality recognized for plastic surgery by the AMA. Dr Stuart Kincaid consults with patients and educates them about plastic surgery procedures. He warns them that liposuctionis not an “easy” procedure and just because “light” anesthesia is used that doesn’t mean it’s safe.  Plastic surgery should always be treated seriously and performed under the safest guidelines possible.

Plastic surgery blog: Men who are healthy enjoy sex for many years

Friday, March 12th, 2010
mature man Plastic surgery blog: Men who are healthy enjoy sex for many years

If you are feeling young on the inside; make sure the outside matches!

Men are more likely than women to be interested in sex, have sex and enjoy sex, according to new scientific research, which also found people who stay active and healthy enjoy longer sex lives. Research by University of Chicago academics published online Wednesday in the British Medical Journal found that, across all age groups, men were more interested in sex than women — and the gap increased with age. The report was re-published on our local channel 10 news.com. 

Dr Stuart Kincaid consults with healthy mature men who are in excellent health and feel great. They typically complain about a tired look on their face. The culprit? A wrinkled neck or droopy eyelids show age that may be beyond the patients real age. Dr Stuart Kincaid offers patients several options for restoring a youthful look to the face. In most cases the best options would be a brow lift,blepharoplasty, and facelift including the neck.  Men are pleased to know that for most patients these procedures are not very painful. The patient will need someone to drive them home and also to take care of them for at least the  first 72 hours. Dr.  Stuart Kincaid can usually have his  male patients socially acceptable in approximately 2-3 weeks.
