If you’ve stayed current on plastic surgery trends, you might know that men are becoming more familiar with the other side of the knife in recent years. That’s because men are one of the fastest-growing demographics in plastic surgery, and many practices are beginning to offer male-exclusive treatments. If you’re curious or want to know what’s out there, here’s what’s available for men looking for the right procedure. According to Zwivel’s 2017 data, the following three procedures saw a dramatic lift in men receiving and looking into these treatments.
This is one of the few treatments that are truly unique to men, and more and more plastic surgeons are beginning to specialize in this treatment and its cause. Gynecomastia is more commonly called “man-boobs” and isn’t totally understood. But, men can find a new confidence boost with this treatment that can reduce the fatty or breast tissue through different techniques, leaving a new, more masculine chest contour. Some other body procedures that are common to men are liposuction, tummy tuck, or various body lifts.
If there’s one thing that can subtly bring the facial aesthetic together, it’s a strong, balanced chin. This can be an integral part of the masculine face, and many men struggle with a weak chin that is a result of genetics. This procedure can involve the use of a chin implant that can be tailored to the individual face and can also be performed at the same time as other facial procedures. The most common include the face or eyelid lift, rhinoplasty, and otoplasty.
Although this treatment isn’t specific to men, it’s growing in popularity as men realize the benefits. Men aren’t exempt from wrinkles, and Botox is highly effective at smoothing them with a simple injection. This neuromodulator can prevent facial muscle movements that repeatedly occur and cause wrinkles over time, meaning it can smooth out things like forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet. Many men also pursue dermal fillers which can restore volume temporarily.
Aside from injectables, many men also opt for non-surgical and surgical treatments alike, such as:
