When we think cosmetic surgery, we often think of women getting breast implants, or lip-injections. However, cosmetic surgery is not just for women. There are multiple cosmetic procedures that are common, and popular, for men.

Just like women, men age too. Society usually focuses on women’s insecurities; however, men can be insecure about certain parts of their body as well when it comes to aging. There is no reason that a man shouldn’t have the option to feel good in his own skin and his appearance. 

Men tend to have different goals when it comes to cosmetic procedures compared to women. It is sometimes a simple fix that has been bothering them for years, or a procedure to help bring his youthful looking self-back in his eyes. Men tend to think about the procedure, and not just jump right in, since there is this idea that men do not have cosmetic procedures. However, here are a few procedures that men tend to gravitate towards, that help bring back their youthful glow.

Facelifts – Usually a man is between the age of 40 to 60 years old when coming in for a facelift. He is not looking to change the look of his face, like women sometimes want to do. He is just looking to bring some life back into his face and reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. Men often feel a boost of self confidence after a procedure such as a facelift.

Eyelid Surgery – Men’s eyelids tend to start to get droopy. Removing the fatty tissue around the eyelids and excess skin can help a man look younger.

Botox – Similar to a facelift, the goal is to not change his face, but to help bring the youth back. This procedure does not require surgery, but instead, helps improve your looks temporarily. 

Liposuction – Kids, work, and other distractions sometimes put a hold on your healthy lifestyle. Sitting in an office all day and running the kids around can result is some fat build up. Many men seek to remove “love handles” or other specific problem areas that have fat, and liposuction is a great option to help bring your “younger” shape back.
