Plastic surgery is commonly associated with women, but over the years it has become increasingly popular among men. The same reasons are there for both men and women to desire plastic surgery, to be more aesthetically pleasing and adding more confidence in personal appearance. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ (ASPS) 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, the top male plastic surgeries for men in 2017 were:
Nose Reshaping – Nose reshaping surgery (also known as rhinoplasty) involves changing, correcting, or repairing the nose for a more aesthetic appearance or improved function. After consultation, the surgeon remodifies the bones and cartilage in the nose so that it can be visually appealing. This type of plastic surgery is typically performed at an outpatient center under anesthesia. Recovery time can take a few weeks and requires several checkups to make sure the nose heals adequately. Rhinoplasty is a very popular plastic surgery for men because of how the nose is the central focus point on the face. The surgery is affordable among other cosmetic procedures, and the procedure is pretty straightforward and easy.
Eyelid Surgery – Eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) is the second most common plastic surgery for men. Men who have hooding in the upper eyelid or bagginess under the eyes seek blepharoplasty to correct these conditions. This cosmetic surgery involves removing excess skin so the area around the eyes is smoother, tighter, and more aesthetically pleasing.
Liposuction – Liposuction is a common cosmetic surgery among women and men. It involves removing excess fat from under the skin using a suction tool. This type of surgery can be done in almost any part of the body including the abdomen, neck, arms, legs, and more. Liposuction is ideal for individuals with stable body weights who want to remove unwanted deposits of fat in specific areas of their bodies. This surgery is becoming very popular among men who want their bodies to look aesthetically pleasing, and they just need a little more fine-tuning.
Breast Reduction – Similar to liposuction, breast reduction surgery is popular among men to make their bodies look more aesthetically pleasing. This type of plastic surgery involves removing fat and skin around the breasts to make them smaller in size. Breast reduction in men helps them look more masculine.
Hair Transplantation – Hair loss is one of the most common issues among men. Because of advances made in hair transplantation surgery, it’s becoming a very popular solution to hair loss in men. Over the years technological advancements have made this procedure safer, faster, better, and more affordable. Restoring hair makes men look and feel younger and more aesthetically pleasing. This is one of the most common types of plastic surgeries among men because of its effectiveness and affordability.
