Look, it’s 2018 & we know cosmetic surgery has never really been only for women. Men want to look & feel great, too! The latest statistics find that male cosmetic surgery has been on the rise, with a 28 percent increase since 2000. Men continue to increase this number. Over the past year, they made up eight percent of all cosmetic procedures. So, what exactly are they getting done? We’re taking a look at popular cosmetic surgery options for men.
The first & most common surgery option for men is Blepharoplasty, aka an eyelid lift. On either upper or lower eyelids, this can be done to remove sagging skin on the lids or under eye bags. A brow lift can also be done in combination with this procedure. The recovery time is quick — about a week — with results making eyes appear more youthful & awake.
The second most common cosmetic surgery for males is liposuction. Typically done under anesthesia, this cosmetic surgery involves removing fat around the sides & belly and neck. Those with loose skin or a taught beer belly are usually not good candidates. Although fat is removed, this is not a weight-loss procedure.
Oh, the good old-fashioned nose job still tops in the top three most common cosmetic surgery procedures. A well-structured nose transforms the face. The procedure can reshape & rebuild the nose for either cosmetic reasons or to relieve functional breathing obstructions (Yes, people do have this issue!).
