Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Male Plastic Surgery

Many people are under the impression that only women are having plastic surgery procedures performed. However, according to statistics that have been compiled and released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more men than ever before are opting to have various forms of plastic and cosmetic surgery performed each year. Some of the more popular types of plastic surgery for men are mentioned below.

Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

More and more men are suffering from this condition as a result of dietary and hormonal imbalances, which is extremely embarrassing for them. However, it can be addressed relatively quickly by means of a gynecomastia procedure. Surgeons will normally make use of ultrasound-assisted liposuction to help remove the breast tissue as well as excess fat in the immediate area. In cases where a man’s breasts are abnormally large though, he will have to opt for a surgical removal of the tissue and fat. Almost 25,000 men had this procedure performed in 2013 and the average recovery time is between 1 and 2 weeks at the most.

Liposuction

As men grow older, many of them notice the appearance of stubborn fat pockets around the abdominal and waist areas, which no amount of dieting or exercise seems to be able to shift. Various forms of liposuction can assist by not only removing this unwanted fat; it can help reshape these areas of the body as well. In the past year, as many as 23,000 men opted to have liposuction performed. Recovery time after having this procedure performed is usually around 1 week to 10 days at the most.

Eyelid Surgery

Many men notice that, as they age, their eyelids tend to start sagging or drooping, which results in them looking up to 10 years older than they really are. Having eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty performed will help address this issue as quickly as possible. The procedure consists of having incisions made around the eyes to remove excess fat, skin tissue and muscle, which can help reduce the appearance of dark circles, crow’s feet and laugh lines around the eyes as well. In the past year, 15% of blepharoplasty procedures were performed on men.

Facelifts

This has become one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery for men over the past few years. Sun exposure, stress, gravity and even a range of genetic factors can result in men looking many years older than they actually are. Facelifts for men have become extremely commonplace over the past few years though, with up to 10% of them being performed on the male population over the past year. The type of facelift performed will normally depend on the amount of age-related damage a candidate wants to eliminate – in some cases; a mini-facelift procedure will more than suffice.

Men who find that they are feeling self-conscious about the signs of aging appearing on various areas of their bodies can schedule a consultation with us to discuss what the best course of action will be with regards to plastic surgery.
