Top 5 Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
Without question, cosmetic plastic surgery procedures for men are growing in popularity. Our male patients, from younger professionals to older distinguished gentlemen, want to look their best. Brotox (botox for men) is a great option, but it is only the beginning.
This might be because cosmetic surgery continues to become more accessible to men. We are also seeing a cultural shift, especially with the millennial generation, where men have increasing pride in their appearance. They’re more willing to get those touch-ups for that new job, their wedding day, or just to tighten up their look. Competition is fierce in every way out there. Naturally, maintaining one’s stunning appearance applies to both men and women these days.
What Most Men Want in Plastic Surgery
Most commonly, when it comes to cosmetic plastic surgery, men are looking for two things:
- Slight tweaks and improvements to help them put their best face forward
- Some tightening up of problematic areas to show off a more fit, masculine body
If you find yourself wondering if you are the only one considering plastic surgery to improve your look, stop worrying. You are not alone! Plastic surgery for men has been steadily increasing, and so has nonsurgical minimally-invasive rejuvenation (including botox, filler, and peels).
Here are the top five most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures for men, including how many of these procedures were performed last year (source: 2016 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report):
Top 5 Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
Rhinoplasty: Commonly referred to as a “nose job”, a rhinoplasty procedure involves reshaping of the nose with cartilage shaping and grafting to give a more balanced look to the face.
Eyelid Surgery: Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, rejuvenates the look of your eyelids by smoothening of the eyelid contour, trimming of excess skin and tightening the loose overhang.
Gynecomastia: Also known as male breast reduction, gynecomastia is a plastic surgery procedure to remove extra tissue above the pec muscles to naturally reveal your more masculine chest underneath.
Liposuction: Liposuction is a minimally invasive technique to remove fatty tissues in certain areas of the body, like the love handles, belly and back, for a more sculpted physique.
Facelift: Facelifts and Necklifts (often performed together) give a more youthful appearance to the face and neck with tightening of excess skin and fat re-positioning to restore volume.
