Plastic Surgery for Men
Plastic surgery has generally been associated with women. But plastic surgery for men is becoming more common. Times have changed and so have attitudes. More and more men are turning to plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancement, not just to look better, but to FEEL better as well. Confidence is about being sure of yourself, but that assurance doesn’t come easy when you’re not comfortable in your own skin. Every year more men step up and consult a plastic surgeon regarding their body image. Let’s take a look at some of the plastic surgery procedures most popular with men.
Facial enhancement procedures are becoming increasingly popular among men. These procedures are designed to eliminate the facial flaws that may be holding you back. Let’s start from the top.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid rejuvenation, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures requested by men, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). This procedure removes the bags from under the eyes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Extra skin from your upper eyelids is also removed, which helps for a more youthful appearance and can even improve your vision.
If you are concerned about your double chin, or “turkey neck”, there are a couple of options available. Kybella®, from Allergan, is a non-surgical injection that helps to reduce fat cells. Depending on the consultation with your plastic surgeon, if it is determined that Kybella is not the best course, there is also a surgical option. A lower rhytidectomy, or neck lift, can eliminate double chins, restore strong jaw lines.
Maybe you aren’t happy with your nose. Rhinoplasty surgery, aka nose job, helps men look and feel better by changing the size and shape of their nose. Changing the look of your nose may not be the only reason for having a nose job. Many men who have had broken noses have breathing problems that result from a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can also fix this problem, allowing you to breathe more freely.
Many men are afflicted with abnormally large breasts or “man boobs”. This is caused by additional breast tissue that diet and exercise cannot help to reduce. The gynecomastia procedure involves removing excess glandular tissue and skin, while liposuction removes excess fatty tissue. Combined, these surgeries will reduce and flatten the size of the breasts, whilst enhancing the natural contours of the chest.
Another popular plastic surgery for men procedure is liposuction. You might be dealing with a “dad bod” that won’t respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction involves removing excess fat deposits and creating new body contours, typically for your abdomen and flanks.
Another form of liposuction is VASER Hi Definition Liposculpture. This procedure not only removes the pockets of fat for a thinner, flatter stomach, but creates a highly defined and athletic appearance. The ideal candidate for VASER Hi-Def liposculpture is someone with good muscle tone and not a lot of fat or loose skin.
Patients with a bit more excess fatty deposits may need to opt for the standard liposuction procedure and, if it’s determined there will be excess skin after the surgery, an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, may also be needed. This procedure will remove the additional skin, as well as pull the abdominal muscles together.
Thinning hair is also a common problem for many men. There are many options to reduce hair loss, but if it’s gone beyond that point, we have a solution! Stay tuned for our next blog to discuss the NeoGraft™ Automated FUE Hair Transplantation Treatment.
