“To love your body and feel your best” is not something confined to women. Many men are now going under the knife to get their body or face enhanced. For example, more than 150,000 men go for various plastic surgeries each year. This number is somehow significant, especially when considered in comparison to the past.
The intriguing question here is that what are the most common cosmetic procedures sought by men? And here is the list:
1) Body Contouring Procedures
Just like women who are looking for more feminine body contours, men also desire to have an ideal manly-looking body.
Whether it’s a blessing from heaven or your hard work, men with V-shape body, flat abdomen, and broad shoulders seem to reflect more confidence than others, being more attractive to women’s eyes as well. This has made many on the lookout for such masculine traits.
Liposuction (liposculpture) is the most popular cosmetic procedure among men. This surgery removes the unwanted fat accumulating in various body areas like flanks, abdomen, and thighs.
2) Eyelid Surgery
For most people, drooping or baggy eyelids are not to be neglected as they make them look older. Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure which addresses this condition. This surgery is a trendy procedure for men in 2019, especially those who are aged around 30-40.
3) Nose surgery
As routine as it is for women, searching for the facial imperfections in the mirror is a daily thing for men too. However, men may forget about the wrinkles they’ve got on their forehead or they may not really care about their thin lips as much as women do. Yet, when it comes to nose, many men are concerned about their nose profile. That’s why, around 30% of nose jobs are performed on men.
This trendy procedure is desired by many men in Iran, too. While it may look strange, in your country, to see many men with nose bandages in the streets, it’s a normal sight when you walk down a street in Tehran, the capital nose job of the world.
4) Male breast reduction
Male breast reduction, medically called gynecomastia, is one of the procedures which has been on the rise since a long time ago. Based on the statistics reported by American Society of Plastic Surgery, more than 20,000 men have had gynecomastia done only in the US during the past years.
Gynecomastia surgery both eliminates the accumulation of fat and treats abnormal tissues in male breasts. It uses either liposuction (fat removal), mastectomy (tissue removal), or a combination of both, depending on the candidate’s condition.
5) Chin Implants
If you’re not lucky enough to be born with an athletic, well-defined jawline, you should know that you have the fortune on your side to be living in the age of plastic surgery.
Chin implants or genioplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting a recessed chin. Men choose this surgery to give balance to their facial features and create a more masculine face and profile.
6) Hair Transplant
As more and more men are going bald, “hair transplant” becomes greatly in-demand around the world.
More than 25% men are affected by alopecia, a condition which causes hair to fall as early as the 20s. This condition cannot be controlled, unless it is treated through hair transplant surgery.
Hair transplant refers to the procedure of taking hair from one area of the body (usually the back scalp) and harvesting it to another area which has gone out of hair!
7) Ear Surgery
Ear surgery, otherwise known as otoplasty, is a surgical option which improves the appearance of ears, be it a prominent ear, a constricted ear or an underdeveloped ear. This surgery is carried out by either a plastic surgeon or an otolaryngologist. In this surgery, the surgeon employs various methods to reshape and reconstruct the ear, depending on the patient’s condition.
8) Face-lift and Neck Lift
As the majority of population wish to look “younger”, facial rejuvenation procedures are getting noticed a fair amount. From non-invasive treatments like laser and dermal fillers to invasive procedures like face-lift and neck lift, men and women are spending huge money on their skin.
Face-lift and neck lift are two options for tightening loose skin and removing excess fat and tissue from around chin, jawline, and neck. They can be performed separately or together in a single operation.
Male face-lift and neck lift are done with the purpose of defining a stronger chin profile. The surgery is done in a way not to diminish the masculine-looking characteristics of the patient. For example, in this procedure, the surgeon lift and tone the skin so that the Adam’s apple is preserved.
