Washington, D.C. men want to look good too! Some men spend less time caring for their skin, and others may spend more time damaging their skin through outdoor activities. At Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter and her elite team have discovered that there are treatments toward which men tend to gravitate. Men like surgical procedures because they are quick and do not require repeated treatments. Blepharoplasty is the number one surgical procedure requested by men in our office because it rids of the excess skin that weighs down the upper eyelid without looking unnatural. From a nonsurgical standpoint, Botox® and PRP treatments for thinning hair run neck and neck for popularity.  Other procedures that men tend to gravitate toward are rhinoplasty, microneedling, Sculptra, Sculpsure,  and Thermage.  Most of these treatments require one or two visits for years’ worth of result.
