Cosmetic surgery is becoming more popular as more men are choosing to have cosmetic procedures performed to improve the way they look. In the past, the most common procedure performed on a man to enhance his appearance was rhinoplasty, which is commonly referred to as a nose job. Today’s man takes pride in his presence, which has led to more surgical procedures being performed.
Improvements for the Body
Male cosmetic surgery men can elect to have performed can include some procedures for the body. Men can have a breast reduction to improve the appearance of so-called ‘moobs.’ No man wants to feel like they have breasts, and this can happen when a man gains weight. Liposuction is also a form of cosmetic surgery now being performed on many men. This procedure can help trim a man’s waistline, so he has a more defined area between his abdominal muscles and his waist.
A cosmetic procedure can also be done to help tighten skin in certain areas. Men often want their stomachs and buttocks to have a firm and toned appearance. A tummy tuck or butt lift can create the type of firmness a man wants to show off at the beach.
Improvements for the face
Men can have the same facial procedures many women elect to have performed. As men age, their facial skin often begins to sag, which can make them look old and tired. A cosmetic surgery procedure such as a facelift can be used to get rid of excess skin under the chin or around the eyes. This procedure entails cutting the skin to remove the excess and stitching together the remaining skin, so it is tight and taut. Men can choose to have a partial lift for a specific area or a total lift for their entire face. In some cases, liposuction can be used to remove the fat under the chin and on the neck.
Men who were born with exaggerated features such as large noses or protruding ears can have them scaled down to better proportions. By resizing elements that are viewed as too large, the man becomes more self-confident and less self-aware of his features. There are many cosmetic surgery treatments explicitly geared for men, which wasn’t the case a few years ago.
In addition to the surgical procedures which involve cutting into the skin, some non-invasive procedures can help improve a man’s appearance. Botox is now being used by men who want to look as young as they feel. Dermal fillers are also used by men in the business world who wish to promote themselves as being confident and successful individuals.
