Plastic Surgery for Men

When we think of cosmetic surgery procedures, we naturally think about women as recipients of cosmetic improvements. After all, breast procedures, tummy tucks, Mommy Makeovers, and the like are undertaken by women. However, men are discovering that cosmetic surgery can improve their appearance and their outlook as well! In fact, recent studies show that 3 times as many men are getting cosmetic surgery today compared with 20 years ago.

The Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures for Men
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, ASPS, tracks the number and types of plastic surgery procedures annually. Recent stats show that the most popular surgeries for men are:

Injectables like Botox, Dysport and dermal fillers are also increasingly popular options chosen by men who want to look as young as they feel.

Male breast reduction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for men and it’s increasing every year, likely due to a rise in obesity among males of all ages and an increased interest in reducing breast tissue that won’t disappear with diet and exercise.

Liposuction, thigh lifts and lower body lifts are, likewise, on the rise as men experience massive weight loss with bariatric surgery that eliminates the fat but leaves rolls and sagging skin and tissue all over the body but particularly on the abdomen.

Why Men Elect Cosmetic Surgery
There are as many reasons that men want cosmetic surgery as there are for women but leading the charge for men are a desire to remain competitive in the workplace, as youth is a valued commodity for executives. The increase in divorce statistics plays a role as well, as men want to be attractive to a new mate after the end of a marriage. Some men find relief from lower back pain when abdominal muscles can be tightened up with a tummy tuck and others are happy to discover better vision after eyelid surgery.

Simple facial rejuvenation procedures such as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), Botox injections and other procedures are increasingly popular with men as a way to maximize results while minimizing time and money.

The Bottom Line
Cosmetic surgery and non-surgical facial rejuvenation are no longer just for women, as men increasingly embrace the opportunity to feel and look younger.
