More and more men are undergoing surgical procedures to correct their looks and physique. There has been a staggering 121% increase in the number of men opting for surgical procedures in the past 15 years.
Here is a quick look at the 7 best male plastic surgery procedures:
Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery helps to take care of any deformities that affect the nose like crooked nose, over-sized nose, flaring nostrils, beak shaped nose and also helps to align the length and the width of your nose. Most men perform this surgery for its aesthetic value; however, there are some cases where it is done along with septoplasty to improvise breathing pattern and opening the airway.
One of the most widely performed plastic surgery on men and women alike is Liposuction, which is a method of removing excess fat from the body. In this procedure an instrument is inserted under the skin that breaks up the fat tissues and sucks out the unwanted fat from the patient’s body. This is meant for men who have excess fat on their body but it isn’t a cure for obesity.
Gynecomastia or Breast Reduction surgery as it is commonly called is a surgical method that removes local fat and glands from the breast area for men. This surgery is ideal for men who have ‘man boobs’ and is the only possible way to get rid of the excess fat in the breast area.
Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery as it is commonly known is performed on the eye lids, especially the upper lid. This surgery is performed purely for aesthetic value and is a good way to get rid of the wrinkles around the eyes, as the eyelids show signs of aging much sooner than other parts of the body. In this surgery excess skin is removed and repositioned so certain aspects like dark eye circles, drooping eye lids and wrinkled eye lids are corrected.
This is ideal for men who have lost weight the hard way – by working out in the gym. In this procedure, the skin, which becomes loose due to the weight loss, is firmed. This procedure is performed on the thighs, arms, neck, chin and chest area but there are cases of complete body contouring too.
This is a non-surgical procedure but a lot of men are opting for Botox shots, which helps in getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines that are a result of aging. In this procedure an injection is inserted inside the skin which temporarily paralyses the growth of certain muscles that end up making your skin wrinkled and loose. Botox doesn’t get rid of wrinkles; it just makes them less obvious.
Another popular non surgical method to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines is a facelift, which is gaining popularity among men too. Along with facelifts, men are also investing in other facial corrective procedures like chin implants, brow lifts and cheek implants.
These are the 7 most preferred surgical and non surgical methods that are performed by men around the world that adds aesthetic value to the physical appearance of men.
