Choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery with an experienced plastic surgeon can be an effective way to revitalize your body. While many individuals associate plastic surgery with female patients, studies show that greater numbers of men are turning to plastic surgery to improve their appearance. Continue reading to learn more about the most common plastic surgery procedures for men.
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate localized fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. A number of men take advantage of liposuction in order to reduce fat deposits around the midsection, abdomen, and chest. This helps to reduce or eliminate the appearance of “spare tires” and love handles, adding definition to muscles.
A blepharoplasty procedure is performed to rejuvenate the look of their upper, lower, or both eyelids. A blepharoplasty is a great option for men who are suffering from:
- Excess fat in their upper lids that make their eyes appear puffy
- Loose skin that disturbs the contours of the upper lid and impairs vision
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids
Another common plastic surgery procedure for men is rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery. Men who are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of their noses can all benefit from rhinoplasty. This procedure may also benefit men who are suffering from a congenital abnormality or injury that interferes with their breathing abilities.
A number of men are turning to non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections and dermal fillers. In fact, Botox was the most popular cosmetic procedure among men in 2010, leading some to call this injectable “Brotox.” Botox injections work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that allow for the contraction of certain facial muscles, reducing the look of fine lines and facial wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, use natural compounds to plump or “fill” lines and wrinkles.
