Most people believe that cosmetic plastic surgery only applies to women. But men often feel the same insecurities and wish to correct their appearances. Men tend to notice the effects their appearance has on relationships, careers, and how others perceive them. If you want more information about male cosmetic procedures, you are not alone. Personal Plastic Surgery rounded up the top cosmetic procedures for men in 2022.
Botox (Injectable Fillers)
The most popular treatment for men remains Botox injections, which continue to gain more popularity. Botox is a neurotoxin that reverses the effects of aging by relaxing wrinkle-causing facial muscles, visibly smoothing the skin. The popular procedure is not only highly sought-after by women; in fact, men looking for rejuvenation find the same smooth skin and youthful-looking results.
The eyelids are typically the first region of the face to show signs of aging. Dr. Sanjay Lalla strongly recommends eyelid surgery to remove excess fat, skin, and muscle on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both eyelids. Upon successful completion of eyelid surgery, patients will quickly notice less puffiness and no more bags!
It’s no surprise liposuction made our top male procedures list, continuing its reign as the most requested cosmetic procedure among both men and women. Liposuction was performed on 22,000 men in 2020—and we already see more surgeries two years later. Liposuction is perfect for men who are at their ideal weight, but also have stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to the many ab workouts you endure. With innovative technologies and techniques, liposuction is minimally invasive and effective at revealing your hard-earned muscles underneath.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
As the most central feature on your face, your nose has a direct impact on your overall facial appearance. While women often seek to minimize the nose, many men desire a stronger, more masculine profile and may opt for augmentation techniques. The surgery itself can vary in how long it requires, typically one to two hours. After the surgery, patients spend a little time recovering before returning home.
Thanks to gravity, many men’s necks experience droopy skin, sagging fat deposits, and wrinkles as they age. The neck becomes less elastic over time, leaving you with unappealing proportions that make you appear older. In 2020, approximately 22,184 men chose to restore their necks to their youthful glory through neck lift surgery. After all, patients want to look dashing in everything from collared shirts to simple T-shirts. This effective procedure creates a stronger look that is well worth the investment.
Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Lastly, male breast reduction is a common plastic surgery procedure for men who suffer from large breasts. Whether due to hormonal imbalances, genetics, or excess fat accumulation, large breasts are a large cause of insecurity among men. These fat deposits become difficult to remove without strenuous exercise and diet. By reducing the breast size, men feel much more confident in their clothes and at the beach!
