Over the past few years, there has been an upsurge in demand by men in requisition for various surgeries. Men with “love handles” or a double chin feel insecure about discussing some of those inconveniences with their peers. Plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures conducted on men have recently increased to almost 30%. The following are the three most common types of surgical procedures that are conducted on men.

1. Face

Almost every gentleman cares about their looks, putting more focus on the best face outlook. To attain this, most of them turn towards specific procedures that can help them acquire the appearance they so desire. Others decide to fasten certain bothersome features, like nose, eyes, cheeks, and chin. The following are some facial procedures designed to turn back the hands of time.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that reforms the nose and brings about proportionality to the face. Rhinoplasty is also known as a “nose job” by patients. It is an easy procedure to recover, and patients can resume duties within five to seven days. This surgery is amongst the most conducted plastic surgeries amidst guys.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that helps reduce signs of aging to the middle and lower parts of the face, including sagging, wrinkles, age spots, and depreciation of elasticity. This requires well conversant and experienced surgeons who will engage both facial skin and underlying tissues, muscles, and fat.

BOTOX®

BOTOX® and wrinkle smoothers like it are often sought out as a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift. Facelifts, though longer term, require much more recovery time following the procedure. Because of this, sometimes a facelift is inappropriate for a particular patient, whereas BOTOX® requires no downtime and shows results for months on end without needing to have a refresh.

2. Chest

One of the most common desires for men is to have a hard chest with no extra fat or skin anywhere. Men often have to work tirelessly in the gym to just try and earn a well-defined chest. For those who cannot spend that kind of time on their diet and exercise, they may seek alternative procedures to accomplish a similar goal. These include the following.

Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a situation whereby men develop enlarged breast tissue and can occur at any age bracket. This condition lowers self-confidence and may bring about emotional discomfort. This is the surgical procedure in which a man’s breast tissue is reduced and flattened, creating masculine chest contours. Where there is the presence of excess fatty tissue, the patient also undergoes a liposuction process.

3. Abdomen

Especially as we age, it is normal to see more stubborn fat around the stomach area. Despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, it can be difficult to lose this excess fat without a procedure or treatment. There are surgical and nonsurgical treatments men may benefit from, such as the following.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that reshapes and slims certain body areas, such as the waist and abdomen. It is an outpatient procedure that needs surgeons who are well conversant with the operation. Patients get back to normal routines and duties within three to five days.

Tummy Tuck

Tummy tucks can vary depending on the patient’s needs, but at the end of the day they can remove inches off your waist or stomach. This is one of the few procedures that removes excess skin and fat at the same time.
