When people think of cosmetic surgery, they generally think of women and breast implants or mommy makeovers. However, male cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more common every year.
We couldn’t be more supportive of making cosmetic surgery available for men: there’s no reason men shouldn’t have options to feel good about the way they look too. Though men will generally have different goals in mind, it’s all about feeling good about oneself and being happy with their appearance.
Male patients cite a wide variety of reasons for getting cosmetic surgery. Older men get facial surgery to remain competitive in a workforce that places an emphasis on youth, or to have a better shot at love with a new partner. Whatever the reason, men can rest assured there are a wide variety of options available to meet their needs.
Eyelid surgery is a favorite among men. This rejuvenation procedure addresses wrinkles and droopy eyelids. As one of the earliest signs of aging in men, removing excess skin and fatty tissue can easily make men look younger and more energetic.
Facelifts are also popular. Candidates for this procedure are usually between 40 and 60 years of age, but anyone whose face shows signs of aging can receive this treatment. The main goal of a facelift is to bring a youthful look back to an individual’s face without changing their fundamental appearance. Without wrinkles or sagging skin, many men experience a confidence boost and are happier with the face in the mirror.
Botox is also quite common, and for good reason: there’s no surgery required. Botox can temporarily improve your looks by addressing moderate to severe wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. A few injections can go a long ways towards bringing back a youthful appearance.
Liposuction is still the most popular body contouring choice. Many men seek to remove their “love handles” or other problem areas of fat, and liposuction can be a great option to achieve a body shape they feel better about.
