Contrary to popular belief, plastic surgery is not just for women. Certain procedures are very popular with men as well and are undergone for similar reasons as women (i.e. to feel younger, a confidence booster, improve appearances, etc.). Here are some of the most common procedures for men:

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is a condition when men develop enlarged breasts, a condition that can affect men at any age and impact their confidence. With the assistance of plastic surgery or a male breast reduction, the surgical procedure removes 90% of the gynecomastia tissue during the surgery. It is common for patients to experience some swelling and discomfort after the procedure, however, the recovery time is short.

Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among men and women. This body contouring procedure removes stubborn fat from any part of your body. Men often choose to remove fat from their abdominal area, “love handles,” chest and neck. The recovery time is usually minimal.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is quickly gaining popularity among men and women. Improving the look of your eyes can have a drastic effect on your overall appearance. Men often undergo eyelid surgery to reduce the puffiness and sagging around their eyes, as a result of aging. Removing this excessive tissue can help you look younger and look more refreshed.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty procedures are offered to male patients facing both functional and cosmetic issues with their noses. Depending on your wants and needs, the surgery will either be an ‘open’ or ‘closed’ procedure. Both options will result in a more balanced, proportionate facial appearance.

Botox

This simple procedure is a popular, noninvasive way to rid yourself of fine lines and wrinkles in both men and women. Botox is a quick non-surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of varies areas of your face including around your mouth, nose, eyes and forehead. There’s no recovery time, so this is a simple procedure you can do on your lunch break!
