Five Most Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men

Even though cosmetic surgery is generally marketed to women, more men today are opting for procedures that will give them a more youthful and powerful appearance.

Cosmetic surgery is no longer just for females, as men underwent more than 85,000 procedures in 2018, according to a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

The ASAPS identified these five most common cosmetic surgery procedures for men last year:

  1. Liposuction
  2. Breast reduction (treatment of gynecomastia)
  3. Eyelid surgery
  4. Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
  5. Tummy Tuck

As men request cosmetic procedures, they are becoming more tailored to address men’s specific concerns. While many of the procedures are similar to those traditionally performed for women, there are subtle but significant surgical variations, which ultimately produce the most appropriate results in cosmetic surgery for a man.

Let’s look more closely at the top five cosmetic surgery procedures for men.  

Liposuction

Liposuction tops the list as the most common cosmetic procedure American men chose in 2018. Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction uses suction to reduce excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle.

Men with love handles or “beer bellies” that won’t disappear, despite spending hours at the gym, find that liposuction can get rid of the stubborn fat, giving them a leaner, trimmer appearance.

Breast Reduction(treatment of gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by enlarged breasts due to an overgrowth of tissue. Male breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces excess glandular tissue and fat to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.

Often called “man boobs,” gynecomastia is estimated to affect between 40 to 60 percent of men. Certain drugs, medical problems, and genetics can contribute to male breast enlargement, but there is no confirmed cause in the majority of cases. 

For some men losing weight can help reduce the appearance of enlarged breasts.  Frequently there is excess glandular tissue as well even for the most slender male patients. 

Male breast reduction surgery is an effective, long lasting treatment that reduces the excess tissue, restoring a more masculine and natural contour to the chest.

Eyelid Surgery

Wrinkles and deep lines, as well as puffiness on the lids, begin to develop with the passage of time. Aged, droopy eyelids can cause men to look old, tired, or angry, produce anxiety, and actually impair vision. Eyelid surgery solves that by removing excess skin and fat on upper and lower eyelids. It is often done in conjunction with other surgical procedures, including a facelift, eyebrow lift, and forehead lift.

Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to improve its size, shape, or function.

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, reduces excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. Men have a smoother and firmer profile after a Tummy Tuck.

Many men also request Facelifts and Neck Lifts in our office, even though they didn’t make the top five list from the ASAPS. Both of these procedures rejuvenate the face, jawline, and neck by restoring sagging skin and other tissues. These help improve signs of aging and result in a younger appearance.

Cosmetic Procedures for Men

Best Cosmetic Procedures for Men

No one wants to accept how aging affects our appearance. It’s disappointing to look in the mirror and see someone who looks older than we actually are or feel. These insecurities don’t just apply to women; men also suffer. The number of men opting for cosmetic procedures is rising. In honor of Men’s National Health Month, here are cosmetic procedures we recommend for men.

 

Chest

If you suffer from excess skin and fat in the chest, breast reduction surgery could help. It’s quite common for skin to lose its elasticity over time. With excess fat, the tissue can become saggy and may lead to a feminizing appearance of the chest. With breast reduction surgery, the excess skin is removed and tightened. The procedure is not only permanent but can have you back to work in no time.

Stomach

If your efforts at the gym aren’t yielding the results you desire, liposuction or a tummy tuck may be an option for you. Liposuction or SlimLipo targets excess fat in the body and reduces it from hard to reach places, even delicate areas such as around the arm or thighs.

If you are looking to remove larger areas of fat and skin from the waistline, a tummy tuck is a possible solution. This procedure is more in depth and requires more shaping and sculpting, giving you a smaller, more defined waist. It is usually completed in conjunction with some form of liposuction.

*Note: This procedure is ideal for those who have difficulty with trouble spots and should not be considered a weight loss method.

Nose

Rhinoplasty can help reshape your nose for structural or aesthetic purposes. In most cases, the size of the nose can throw off the balance of the whole face. A nose job addresses many cosmetic issues, such as shape and size, to create a harmonious balance. This surgery requires anesthesia, then the doctor will make small incisions inside the nose and sculpt to the appropriate shape. In most cases, the patient’s recovery time is very short, and the results are permanent.

Eyes

A combination of genetics and exposure to the sun can leave your eyes looking tired and makes the skin start to sag. With eyelid surgery, you can quickly achieve a more rejuvenated appearance. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from around the eyes, which will brighten your appearance. The best news is the results are permanent.

If you suffer from under-eye bags or hollows, injections or fillers might be a good option. This process is pretty easy and relatively painless but will require some maintenance.

Face

Sagging skin around the neck can be uncomfortable and can also create an illusion of being heavier than you actually are. If this is an area of concern, a facelift might be the right procedure for you. Facelifts reduces excess skin and fat to give you a firmer, more defined jawline. This process can add years to your appearance and boost confidence. The amount of improvement varies from patient to patient but usually only needs one session to complete. Pain and scarring are minimal with little recovery time after.

Cosmetic Procedures for Men

Cosmetic Surgery for Men

It can be disappointing to look in the mirror and see someone older than we feel. The effects of age, stress, and the environment can make us look older than we actually are. These factors don’t just apply to women, men suffer too. Although it might seem cosmetic surgery is strictly a woman’s domain, the number of men opting for cosmetic procedures is on the rise. Here we have listed some of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men and what they can do to help reverse the signs of aging.

Eyes

A combination of genetics and exposure to the sun can leave your eyes tired and sagging. With eyelid surgery, you can achieve a more youthful appearance. The process reduces excess skin and fat from around the eyes to brighten your look. 

If you suffer from under-eye bags or hollows, injections or fillers might be a good option. This process is fairly easy and painless but will require some maintenance.

Nose 

Rhinoplasty can help reshape your nose for structural or aesthetic purposes. In most cases, the size of the nose can throw off the balance of the whole face. Rhinoplasty addresses many cosmetic issues such as shape and size to create a harmonious balance. This is a surgery that requires anesthesia so the doctor can make small incisions inside the nose and sculpt to the appropriate shape. 

Chest 

If you suffer from excess skin and fat in the chest, breast reduction surgery could help. It’s quite common for skin to lose its elasticity over time. With excess fat, the tissue can become saggy and may lead to a feminizing appearance of the chest. With breast reduction surgery, the excess skin is removed and tightened.

Sagging skin around the neck can be uncomfortable and can also create an illusion of being heavier than you actually are. If this is an area of concern, a facelift might be the right procedure for you. Facelifts reduce excess skin and fat to give you a firmer, more defined jawline.  The amount of improvement varies from patient to patient but is usually completed in one session. Pain and scarring is minimal with little recovery time after.

Stomach 

If your efforts at the gym aren’t yielding the results you desire, liposuction or a tummy tuck may be the option for you. Liposuction uses a small vacuum to remove excess fat from your body. This is ideal for those who have difficulty with small trouble spots and should not be confused as a weight loss method.

If you are looking to remove excess fat and skin from the waistline, then a tummy tuck is an ideal solution. This procedure is more in depth and requires more shaping and sculpting, giving you a smaller, more defined waist.

The results for both have permanent results as long as proper weight management is maintained after your procedure.

Male Breast Reduction

 

Many people are unaware how prevalent gynecomastia is. This condition, characterized by an enlargement of male breast tissue, is generally caused during puberty when hormonal levels peak. If that person is experiencing high-level of estrogen, it could lead to breast tissue resembling a female’s. To correct this, many men opt for a male breast reduction.

A male breast reduction involves liposuction techniques for fat combined with a surgical incision to remove glandular tissue in the breast. A male breast reduction procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which means the patient can return home shortly after the surgery.
