In the past few years, the number of men getting plastic surgery has increased, nearly 100 percent in the last 15 years. It’s a common misconception that women are the only ones who have plastic surgery done, but that’s not the case.
Though women do make up the majority of plastic surgery patients, more and more men are receiving plastic surgery for various reasons. These reasons may be professional or personal, but there is a higher pressure on men to look good in order to succeed in life, so plastic surgery is the easiest solution for this problem. Here are the top plastic surgery procedures for men.
This surgery is fairly simple and very common for men and women. For men, it’s important that you see a plastic surgeon who understands the importance of keeping your face in proportion and not making your nose too small, or changing it too much so it no longer looks appropriate with the rest of your face. It’s common to have this procedure done along with a jaw augmentation to make sure your facial features stay in proportion with one another.
A jaw augmentation is done to enhance the jawline and give it a more masculine look. Professionally, men who appear more masculine and assertive have a higher chance of success in the business world, so it’s a desirable surgery if want your career to benefit from the kind of plastic surgery you have done.
Liposuction is a fairly common procedure that’s generally done for men around the abdomen. The point of liposuction is to suck out the fat in specific areas, like the abdomen. By getting rid of this fat, it makes the abs more pronounced and gives the patient a sculpted look that would be difficult to achieve otherwise. Recovery is relatively fast, though it’s important to avoid strenuous activity for around a month.
For men and women, gravity can be quite detrimental to their appearance. As you age, your body naturally begins dropping, but plastic surgery can help change that, especially around your face. For men, they usually focus on getting neck and eyelid lifts, to give their faces a more youthful and brighter appearance.
