We often hear about how plastic surgery can benefit women, and little discussion is had about how some of these same procedures can improve a man’s aesthetic as well. Because men often have to appeal to stereotypes associated with strength and confidence, any insecurities that they may have about their bodies gets overlooked. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men had almost 200,000 surgical procedures performed in 2015 alone, making up 10% of the surgeries performed overall. It’s apparent, then, that men also have an interest in and seek out plastic surgery. We have some suggestions at High Point Plastic

Surgery for the top 4 procedures men should consider

Although there are similarities between the procedures that both men and women desire, there are some surgeries that men inquire about more than others. ASAPS has cited four procedures as the most sought after for men, which may help you better locate areas of your body that you wish to enhance. If you’re interested in finding out more about some of the top plastic surgery procedures for men, feel free to contact High Point Plastic Surgery for a consultation.

  • Liposuction

Liposuction uses thin, blunt tubes to remove unwanted fat from certain areas of the body. For men, many individuals wish to reduce the amount of fat accumulated in their flanks (love handles) and abdomen. When fat won’t respond to diet and exercise, sometimes plastic surgery is the best option. To create a more sculpted and toned appearance, liposuction can shape areas of the body in order to create a trimmer physique in men.

  • Eyelid Surgery

One of the most telltale signs of age is the eyes, and it holds true for both women and men. Men oftentimes desire blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) in order to look and feel younger, and by receiving an eyelid lift, the excess skin and fatty tissue around your eyes causing you to look tired can be removed and tightened to help you achieve a younger appearance.

  • Male Breast Reduction

Many men suffer from a condition called gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, which can cause cosmetic concerns and low-self esteem in those who have it. Although weight-loss can reduce the size of breasts in some men, usually surgery is the most effective method for creating more masculine features. A male breast reduction can either be performed using liposuction, tissue excision or a combination of both to create firmer and flatter breasts.

  • Facelift

As the aging process progresses in men, facial features can begin to look hollow and the skin can begin to sag. In order to create a smoother texture in the skin and restore volume to the face, a facelift is typically performed. Facelift in men can be more involved than a woman’s facelift due to their tendency to have thicker skin and facial hair, but with a qualified surgeon, men can receive tighter skin that makes them look years younger.
