In the past, it has generally been believed that plastic surgery is primarily for women. However, male cosmetic procedures are now steadily on the rise. In fact, the latest ASPS statistics show that there has been a 28% increase in male cosmetic surgery since 2000. Not only are men becoming aware of the benefits of plastic surgery, there are also many new techniques that require little to no downtime.
Nowadays, men are taking a greater interest in their appearance, which may be the cause of the increase in cosmetic procedures. Men are looking to look and feel their best so that they can feel confident in all aspects of life. Liposuction is a very popular procedure, helping to eliminate love handles or a beer belly for a more toned physique. Male breast reduction is also a popular choice, as it can create a sculpted, more masculine chest for those with gynecomastia.
According to ASPS, the top five cosmetic procedures for men in 2016 were rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast reduction, liposuction, and facelift. These procedures focus on creating a more masculine, youthful appearance, which can help in both the workplace and social situations.
Many men are also opting for noninvasive options to look their best. Botox is a very popular option, helping to smooth our dynamic wrinkles and lines in the upper face. Dermal fillers can be used to restore lost facial volume that occurs with age. Because these treatments require virtually no downtime, men can often be back to work right after the procedure.
