If it comes as a surprise that men are pursuing plastic surgery, then you should know that men are the fastest-growing demographic, according to the American Society for Plastic Surgery. With more plastic surgery practices catering to men and changing the attitudes about plastic surgery being women-exclusive, more men are beginning to show interest in boosting their confidence and achieving their desired body. Here are the top five procedures among men and why.
This one isn’t so surprising, since a strong, well-proportioned nose is a central part of the typical masculine face. However, it’s still wildly popular among women too, and that’s because the nose can take away from an otherwise balanced face. Because of the anatomical and aesthetic differences between men and women, finding a plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty procedures is important.
Like the nose, the eyes are an important part of the face that can be one of the first places to be affected by aging. Droopy or hooded eyes can make the eyes appear small or buried within the skin, and a successful blepharoplasty procedure can both create younger-looking eyes and a stronger presence of the brow.
One thing that many men struggle with is a weak chin, which can often be the result of simple genetics. It can also be the result of excess fat or sagging skin, which can be corrected through a surgical face lift or neck lift. This can often enhance the contours of the jaw and enhance the masculine profile. This can sometimes even include chin implants.
Men are just as prone to stubborn fat as anyone else, and it can be just as frustrating to get rid of. Hence, the popularity of non-surgical fat reduction techniques like UltraSlim. This laser system causes the individual fat cells to release their fatty contents so that the body can absorb them as waste over time without the need for downtime or recovery.
Chances are, you’ve definitely heard of Botox, and maybe even some other injectable treatments like dermal fillers or Kybella. These all serve different purposes, but are popular due to their great, temporary results without the commitment to a surgical procedure. Formulas like Botox can help prevent wrinkle formation, dermal fillers can add volume where it’s needed, and Kybella is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction or a neck lift.
