Plastic surgery has always been a popular service among women. However, in the last few years the amount of men seeking plastic surgery has also increased. The procedures that men are undergoing the most include:
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), this procedure is the most popular form of plastic surgery among men. With the challenging routine of constant dieting and exercising to stay in shape, many men turn to liposuction to eliminate “love handles” or excess fat around the bottom of their midsection.
Since the nose is one of the first features that people notice, it is no wonder why rhinoplasty has become an important procedure for men who seek complete facial harmony. Through nose surgery, the bridge, tip, and nostrils can be improved to achieve a more attractive nose for a better overall facial balance.
Droopy eyelids and excess skin around the eyes is not a good look for men at any age. By removing excess skin and fat from the around the eyes and tightening muscle tissue, a more rejuvenated look can be achieved. Men often combine an eyelid lift with a facelift in order to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.
Also known as “male breast reduction,” this procedure is performed by removing excess skin and fatty tissue from the chest through liposuction. Gynecomastia is desired by men who want a more firm and contoured chest.
Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Protruding ears can cause men to feel self-conscious about the way they look and create disproportion in the overall appearance of the face. Most men undergo otoplasty to improve their ear appearance and achieve a better overall facial balance.
Although invasive plastic surgery procedures are effective, some men would rather improve their appearance by undergoing non-invasive treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler injections like JUVÉDRM® and RADIESSE®. These procedures require little to no downtime and often leave men with improved results that are immediately noticeable.
