Living your best life can take its toll on your body, especially when fun activities take their toll on your youthful appearance! Luckily, there are several plastic surgery procedures that tend to be popular with men, helping them to feel more confident in their appearance.
Whether you’re interested in smoothing out your fine lines and wrinkles that have made you look old before your time, you’d like to tackle excessive body hair, or you want to get rid of the dad bod, you’ll be happy to hear there are targeted cosmetic procedures for men that can help to restore a youthful appearance and enhance confidence.
Common Procedures Men Get
You might be surprised to learn that some of the most popular procedures for men are the same ones that are popular for women. This is likely due to the fact that bodies tend to show similar signs of aging. What are the most common cosmetic procedures for men?
Injectables and dermal fillers are common for men and women alike, not only because they’re an approachable, minimally-invasive introduction to cosmetic enhancement, but because faces are often the first and most visible place on the body to show aging. Botox, in particular, helps to soften the appearance of wrinkles on the face by reducing muscle movement.
When levels of collagen and elastin (two of the body’s natural tools for maintaining a youthful appearance) start to go down, it can remove some of the firm, plump skin that you enjoy in your youth, leaving a sagging, hollow look in the face. Fillers like Restylane, Juvéderm, and others can plump lips and cheeks, fill increases like the nasolabial fold, and restore a youthful appearance.
Laser Hair Removal
Genetic predisposition leaves some men with significantly more hair than others. Laser hair removal can address excessive hair on the chest, shoulders, back, stomach, groin, and other parts of the body thinning these areas or completely eliminating unwanted hair.
On the flip side, many men also want to fight thinning hair on the head. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections in the scalp can help with this common cosmetic concern.
As men age, it’s not abnormal to see deposits of stubborn fat in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and even the chin, despite diet and exercise to maintain a healthy weight, this common look has been coined the Dad Bod. Liposuction is an effective means of eliminating fat and creating a trimmer appearance, especially when it is paired with skin removal or other procedures.
Even if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, extra skin can hang around – sometimes literally. Skin removal procedures may be the only way to eliminate unwanted skin. This form of cosmetic surgery may also be paired with fat removal procedures like liposuction.
Fat deposits in the abdominal region can be difficult to get rid of, no matter how many crunches you do. A tummy tuck, consisting of liposuction and skin removal, can help you on the way to a tighter, trimmer midsection.
Whether diet and exercise just aren’t getting you to your goal size or your busy lifestyle doesn’t leave much time for daily workouts, a male tummy tuck can help you to look your best and boost your confidence.
Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)
Sagging upper eyelid skin and bags under the eyes can age you dramatically and make you look tired, even when you have a ton of energy. In some cases, excess eyelid skin can even impair vision. For these and other reasons, blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eye lift surgery, is common for both women and men.
