Top Plastic Surgery Procedures For Men
More than ever before, men are choosing to enhance and improve their appearance with cosmetic surgery procedures. In 2013, more than 1.2 million men in the United States had at least one cosmetic procedure, according to a comprehensive study released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. With advances in technique and technology, cosmetic surgery produces natural-looking rejuvenation. Here are some of the most popular procedures for men.
- Liposuction: Liposuction is among the procedures most commonly performed on men. This minimally invasive procedure can help men achieve the slim, toned contour they desire by removing areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Some of the most popular liposuction areas for men include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), neck and chin. Liposuction can also be used to improve the appearance enlarged male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. This technique gives patients a sculpted chest with minimal scarring and little downtime.
- Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty can be used to correct a number of nasal issues. Men who have irregular characteristics, such as a bump on the bridge of the nose or crookedness, can refine and reshape the look of their nose. Rhinoplasty can also improve the look of a nose that has been broken or injured as a result of trauma, such as a sports injury.
- Eyelid surgery: A male eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is the second most popular plastic surgery for men. This procedure removes the excess skin and fat that causes eyelids to appear puffy and droopy. This creates a refreshed, energized appearance for the patient and gives them an overall more youthful look.
- Dermal fillers: Dermal fillers such as BOTOX® cosmetic and Restylane® are a quick, minimally-invasive method of providing rejuvenation with no downtime. These injectable fillers reduce common signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and hollow areas in the eyes and cheeks. Most fillers can be administered within minutes and typically last from six to eight months, though some last even longer.
