By Dr. Suzanne Yee on August 11, 2014
Dr. Suzanne Yee is one of the leaders when it comes to cosmetic surgery and non-surgical aesthetics in the greater Little Rock area. The reason for this is her commitment to customized care, whether it involves the latest anti-aging and wrinkle reduction facial surgeries or safe fat reduction and contouring through liposuction.
Over the years, more and more men have been undergoing cosmetic surgery in order to enhance their appearance, and Dr. Yee has assisted them in attaining their aesthetic goals. Let's take a moment right now to consider the basics of male plastic surgery and how it can benefit patients.
The Numbers: More Men Are Undergoing Cosmetic Treatments
The numbers don't lie. Men underwent more than 1.2 million cosmetic procedures in the year 2013, which makes up a total of 9% of all cosmetic treatments that year.
Specifically, here's the breakdown for male aesthetic enhancement:
- Cosmetic surgery procedures: Men underwent more than 204,000 surgical procedures, roughly 13% of the total for 2013
- Non-surgical aesthetic enhancement: Men underwent more than 1.04 million non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures, roughly 8% of the total for 2013
While women still make up the majority of patients, the number of men undergoing aesthetic enhancement shouldn't be taken for granted. Below are some of the most common procedures that men undergo.
Facelift and Brow Lift Surgery for Men
Both the facelift and the brow lift can reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the face, making men look much younger and refreshed in the process. The brow lift is especially effective given how lines form on men's foreheads.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) for Men
Rhinoplasty is also common in men since adjusting the appearance of the nose can have a major effect on the overall appearance of the face and how the other facial features are complemented by the shape of the nose.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) for Men
Bagginess of the upper and lower eyelids can both be effectively addressed thanks to cosmetic eyelid surgery. Getting rid of some sagging and drooping can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of the face.
Facial Implants for Men
In order to have very chiseled and defined features, some men get facial implants placed. The most common facial implants for men tend to be ones for the chin and the cheekbones.
Breast Reduction for Men
Men may have issues with their chest and upper torso such that their chests appear more effeminate than masculine. This condition is known as gynecomastia. Male breast reduction surgery will remove fat and excess tissue in order for men to have more muscular and masculine chests.
Liposuction for Men
Even a good diet and regular exercise may not be enough to get rid of that problematic fat. In order to address these issues, liposuction is a great option. Liposuction can be performed on any part of the body where problematic fat resides.
Cosmetic Injections for Men
Cosmetic injections have been gaining in popularity over the years since they can reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles without the downtime required for facial plastic surgery. Whether BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers are used, the results can be quite astounding.
