Cosmetic surgery is available at clinics across the UK and can transform the way you look. It’s available for both sexes, so let’s find out more about the procedures for men:
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery is used to cure gynaecomastia – an overgrowth of breast tissue in males. During the operation, a special saline solution is used to break down the fat cells, which are then removed by a tube. This is known as liposuction and can leave the chest looking flatter and more defined. Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood recently admitted to having his man boobs reduced, telling the Daily Mirror: “I couldn’t cha-cha-cha, without them jiggling in my face”.
Believe it or not, you can now get implants in your chin. That’s right; silicone implants are used to create a stronger, more defined jawline and are popular with both men and women. They can also improve a weak or residing chin and work alongside other facial procedures such as nose jobs, cheek implants or facelifts. As every patient is different, treatment costs can vary, but reputable clinics will offer a price breakdown if required.
According to The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon, rhinoplasty was the most popular cosmetic surgery for men in 2011. A total of 1,043 males had their nose reshaped and numbers were up five per cent from 2010. While there are three main types of nose surgery, rhinoplasty is arguably the most well-know. It involves a full correction of the nose including the bridge, nose tip and nostrils and can improve your appearance.
Are you losing your hair? If so, hair transplant surgery could be just what you need. It’s designed to restore the natural hairline and can prevent further hair loss, making it a unique and innovative procedure. There are several treatments available – including tablets and creams – but the best clinics offer micrografting, a state-of-the-art hair implant technique. During surgery, a strip of skin is removed from the back of the scalp and follicles are then be planted into the bold or thinning areas.
Ear correction surgery – also known as otoplasty – can change the size, shape and position of the ears. It can pin back flat ears and reshape bat ears and is designed to improve the way you look – and feel. While procedures differ – depending on the wants, tastes and needs of the patient – prominent or protruding ears are cured by removing excess cartilage and pinning the ears back along the fold.
Everything from cheek implants to facelifts and gynecomastia surgery is popular these days, but would you have any work done?
