Top 5 Plastic Surgery Procedures for Guys
It seems as though the stigma related to male grooming and aesthetic maintenance is quickly becoming a thing of the past. With waxed chests, self-tanner, and copious amounts of Rogaine along the way, American men are looking into even more drastic ways to improve their appearance. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, an increasing number of men are undergoing plastic surgery. Between 1997 and 2011, there was a 121% increase in male plastic surgery. The most popular procedures showcases the areas that men are most interested in improving, as well as offer helpful guidance to men considering getting some work done.
Liposuction. In 2011, over 40,000 men opted for liposuction, making it the top male procedure and the overall most popular surgery for both genders. Liposuction is extremely effective for removing excess fat from all over the body, including the tummy, buttocks, hips, arms, thighs, and more. In addition to eradicating volume caused by fat, liposuction may also be useful for smoothing out cellulite. Aging men tend to gather fat in their midsection, making stomach liposuction an attractive option. There are a range of liposuction types available, utilizing new technologies and manual techniques. Liposuction alternatives like Zerona and VelaShape are available for people looking to lose weight without surgery.
2. Rhinoplasty. The nose plays a central role in facial aesthetics, thanks to its location and prominence. Rhinoplasty—first performed in 500 B.C. in ancient India—can drastically or subtlety change the appearance of a person’s nose. Whether you choose to straighten it, build a bridge, or smooth out a hump, rhinoplasty is the top choice for plenty of American men. In the West, the ideal nose is straight but strong enough to create a masculine profile. The surgery itself takes between one and four hours, during which the patient is put to sleep with general anesthesia. Patients can expect to see the full results of a rhinoplasty in 9 months to a year after surgery.
3. Eyelid Surgery. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a versatile procedure designed to improve a patient’s eye area. It’s often used for anti-aging purposes, but can also be used to create double eyelids on Asian patients. Men seek eyelid surgery to lift eyelids that have started to sag over time. Excess fat in the form of undereye bags can be removed with eyelid surgery, resulting in a wider-eyed, more youthful appearance. Male eyelid surgery is often combined with a brow lift or facelift for a more dramatic effect.
4. Male Breast Reduction. Some men suffer from an embarrassing physical condition called gynecomastia, or oversized male breasts. They may appear puffy, droopy, or have irregular nipples. The growth is thought to be caused by a hormonal imbalance and can even cause nipple secretions. Natural weight loss can help men’s breasts lose volume, but some are left with sagging breasts. Male breast reduction addresses gynecomastia by removing excess fat and tissue surgically. The procedure is specially formatted for men, to achieve an end result of a more masculine-looking chest.
5. Facelift There’s a saying about men aging more gracefully than women—but that doesn’t mean any man is celebrating geriatrics. Facelifts are a good choice for older men with wrinkles and sagging skin beyond the help of dermal fillers and less-invasive procedures. Facelifts are customized to suit your needs, whether it’s smoothing out deep forehead lines or erasing jowls. Male facelifts tend to err on the conservative side for results that look natural and masculine.
