Top 3 plastic surgery procedures for men
While plastic surgery was previously reserved for women, more and more men are now discovering the benefits of cosmetic surgery. With carefully selected facial and body procedures, men can enhance their facial features, perfect their body contours and rejuvenate their overall appearance. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and eyelid surgery are the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men. Read this article to learn more about these treatments.
Liposuction (also known as lipoplasty) is a body shaping procedure that has allowed many male patients to obtain flat abdominal contours. During liposuction, the plastic surgeon aspirates special surgical instruments (cannulas) to aspirate fat cells from the abdomen and flanks. Contrary to popular belief, removed fat cells do not grow back. As long as the patient follows a healthy lifestyle, the slimming effect of lipoplasty remains permanent.
In addition to improving the abdominal contours, liposuction can also be used to improve the appearance of the neck, face and arms. It can also be done to remove unsightly fatty deposits on the back, hips and legs. In addition, lipoplasty can be used as part of a process known as abdominal engraving. During this treatment, the plastic surgeon strategically removes localized fat cells to give the impression of well-developed abs.
Rhinoplasty (also called nose reshaping or nose surgery) is a sophisticated procedure to correct the appearance and function of the nose. Although nose work is most often done to improve the aesthetics of the nose, some patients need this procedure to correct breathing problems caused by a deviated septum. In both cases, the procedure proceeds in a similar manner. The surgeon first creates several small incisions inside or outside the nose, then carefully removes excess bone, cartilage and skin tissue. In some cases, cartilage or a bone graft may be added to enlarge the nose. After the procedure, the incisions are closed and a surgical splint is applied to the nose. As soon as the postoperative swelling and bruising is gone, rhinoplasty patients benefit from beautiful nasal contours that complement their other facial features.
N ° 3: eyelid surgery
Eyelid surgery is an operation that affects a small part of the face, but can really give dramatic results. The goal of eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty or eye lift) is to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. In addition, the surgeon gently tightens the remaining skin at the end of the procedure. As a result, the eyes appear young, energetic and rested. In addition, this procedure removes unsightly puffiness under the eyes – a common problem among men who work long hours, do not get enough sleep and do not eat a healthy diet.
Other plastic surgery procedures for men
In addition to liposuction, rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery, men are often subjected to several other plastic surgeries. For example, male patients who have lost a lot of weight often notice that they have excess skin in the stomach area. While exercise can help tighten the underlying abdominal muscles, no amount of exercise can remove excess skin. Fortunately, a tummy tuck can help by removing excess skin and creating a tight abdominal contour. Another method of body shaping often requested by men is the treatment of gynecomastia. This procedure is also called breast reduction in men and helps remove excess fat and skin from the chest, creating a more masculine appearance on the upper body.
