Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures for Men
Women are not the only ones developing a relationship with their plastic surgeon today. Men are
also discovering the many benefits offered by bothcc surgical procedures and non-surgical
treatments. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 204,000 men had
cosmetic procedures performed in 2013 and that number continues to rise. Check out the
cosmetic procedures that are most requested by men today.
During 2013, men made up 12 percent of all liposuction patients. This procedure is attractive to
men because it allows them to trim down stubborn areas like the midsection and back that will
not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, but can often be performed
on an outpatient basis and only requires a few days of recovery time in most cases.
Nose reshaping is another popular option for men, with more than 57,000 men undergoing the
procedure in 2013. c can be used to enhance the size, shape or position of the nose. It
may also be performed on patients that have structural defects that make it difficult to breathe.
Rhinoplasty may be performed under local or general anesthesia, and recovery typically takes
approximately three weeks.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both lids at the same time. This
procedure effectively refreshes the face by eliminating sagging skin and puffiness that makes a
person look chronically tired or older than they feel. Eyelid surgery can also provide functional
benefits, if drooping upper eyelids are interfering with your line of vision.
Gynecomastia is an embarrassing and sometimes painful condition for men, characterized by an
overgrowth of breast tissue. Surgery can remove the excess tissue and skin, giving men a more
masculine body contour. Gynecomastia is often performed on an outpatient basis under local
anesthesia and patients are able to return to work within 1-2 weeks.
Botox – or Brotox, as it has now been dubbed – is also becoming a common procedure for men.
Men are finding that Botox injections can effectively turn back the clock on their appearance
without sacrificing their masculine look. Injections effectively relax facial muscles that lead to
the formation of wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Results can last 3-4 months before a
touch-up session is needed.
PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP has been used to treat different types of orthopedic conditions for
some time, but has more recently been used for hair restoration as well. Blood is drawn from the
patient, just like routine blood work. Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the blood and injected
directly into the scalp. Injected PRP stimulates cells within the hair follicles, encouraging new
hair growth once again.
