How Can You Benefit From Plastic Surgery?
There is growing popularity in plastic surgery procedures among men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men in 2019 was 29 percent higher than in 2000.
Many cosmetic procedures are well-suited for enhancing male aesthetics without being overly “fake” or obvious. The right cosmetic procedure can enhance masculine features, improve body contours, and boost overall self-confidence.
Keep reading for a breakdown of some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men.
1. Gynecomastia Surgery
Eliminate Your Male Breasts
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the enlargement and overdevelopment of male breast tissue—an affliction that creates the dreaded “man boobs.” Some of the reasons gynecomastia develop include:
- Excess weight
- Hormonal changes (at any age)
- Drug use
- Anabolic steroid use
Unfortunately, gynecomastia often causes significant self-esteem issues for men as they don’t feel their figure is very masculine.
After the procedure, men are left with a much firmer and better-defined chest.
Redefine Your Nose
If you have a nose that you don’t love, your nose is likely all you focus on and see when you look in the mirror.
While rhinoplasty (nose jobs) are commonly associated with women, they are just as necessary for men. A man is equally likely to have an enlarged or oddly shaped nose, and why wouldn’t he want to fix that?
Additionally, a man could have started with a wonderfully shaped nose but had it altered with a sporting accident or other facial injury.
Common nasal concerns among men include:
- Nasal humps and bumps
- Flat nasal bridges
- Wide nostrils
- Upturned or downturned nasal tips
- Crooked noses
More men are turning to rhinoplasty to fix any misconfigurations of the nose and achieve a more appealing contour.
3. Chin Augmentation
Develop a Masculine Facial Contour
It may not feel fair, but the stereotypical masculine look includes a strong chin. A weak chin can feel feminine and make a man’s face look soft. On the other hand, a defined chin adds the type of structure to the face, allowing for an overall rugged look.
Luckily, for the men that weren’t born with a strong chin, chin augmentation surgery can help. Usually, this surgery adds a chin implant to give the face more definition.
Tone Up Your Athletic Physique
Both men and women can have stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of dieting and exercise can fix. That is why more men see the benefits of body contouring treatments. Procedures like BodyTite® are minimally invasive, target specific areas of the body, and can give you the toning definition you’ve been dreaming about.
5. Neck Lift
Eliminate Your Turkey Neck
No one wants to have a loose neck. As men get older, many are getting neck lifts to remove the excess skin and fat that gives away their age.
