Common Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
Plastic surgery for men is available, and it helps men revitalize their facial appearance without disrupting their masculine facial features. Some of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men include:
1. Neck Lift
A neck lift helps men reduce or eliminate loose neck skin, excess fat in the lower portion of the face, and other visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline. It often helps men enhance the jawline, as well as remove fat and skin from beneath the chin that otherwise leads to a “heavy” facial appearance.
Typically, a neck lift is recommended for a man who is dealing with excess skin and muscle laxity in the neck. In these instances, a neck lift helps a man address jowls and other neck and jawline issues that negatively impact the facial appearance. A neck lift surgery also helps correct muscle banding in the neck that sometimes makes a man appear older than his actual age.
Male rhinoplasty surgery, also referred to as a male nose job, can be performed for several reasons. In some instances, a rhinoplasty helps a man correct functional issues that impact his ability to breathe through the nose. Or, men can undergo rhinoplasty surgery to reshape the nose, resulting in a rejuvenated facial appearance.
With male rhinoplasty surgery, a man can achieve a nose that appears masculine, i.e. a nose that features a straight bridge and nasal tip that projects at a 90° angle from the nose to the upper lip. Meanwhile, each male rhinoplasty procedure is customized to the patient, enabling him to achieve a nose that naturally complements his facial features.
3. Chin Augmentation
A male chin augmentation procedure is commonly used to address a weak chin. The procedure involves the placement of a small implant in the chin bone or repositioning of the chin bone. In either scenario, a chin augmentation procedure helps produce a strong, sculpted jawline.
Chin augmentation requires a man to account for the appearance of the chin and nose. Since the chin and nose are key facial features, a man must consider whether chin augmentation surgery can help him achieve a chin that appears in proportion to the nose. If a chin augmentation ultimately proves to be the best choice, it can help a man improve the appearance of the chin and bolster his overall facial appearance.
Male blepharoplasty surgery is used to remove lower eyelid bags and excess skin from the upper eyelids. In doing so, a blepharoplasty helps men improve their cosmetic appearance. Sometimes, blepharoplasty surgery also helps men remove sagging upper eyelids that hamper their vision.
Multiple types of male blepharoplasty procedures are available, including upper and lower eyelid varieties. Once a patient undergoes a male blepharoplasty treatment consultation, he can find out if he qualifies for one or more eyelid lift procedures. Then, the patient can receive a custom male eyelid lift treatment plan so he can safely and effectively undergo a blepharoplasty surgery.
What Is the Most Common Plastic Surgery for Men?
Many types of plastic surgery for men are offered across the United States, and cosmetic treatment trends vary year to year. Rhinoplasty ranked first among cosmetic surgical procedures for men in 2020, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). In addition, ASPS noted facelift and blepharoplasty were among the popular plastic surgery for men procedures administered in 2020.
What Types of Plastic Surgery for Men Are Safe and Effective?
Common plastic surgery for men procedures are performed only if they are deemed safe and effective, regardless of treatment. To find out if a patient is eligible for plastic surgery, he must receive a medical evaluation in advance.
During an evaluation, a patient’s medical history is reviewed. The patient also receives a physical examination. If the patient is in good overall health, he likely will qualify for one or more common plastic surgery for men procedures. Or, if a patient does not qualify for any of these procedures, non-surgical alternatives can be explored.
What Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatment Options Are Available for Men?
Men can undergo any of the following non-surgical cosmetic treatments to revitalize their facial appearance:
With Botox injections, men can treat crow’s feet, frown lines, and other visible signs of aging in the face. The injections can be made into different areas of the face. And, the results of these injections can remain intact for up to four months.
2. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers, also referred to as facial fillers, can be used to address facial wrinkles and scars. Several facial fillers are available to enhance the appearance of the chin, cheeks, and other facial areas. Dermal filler treatments can deliver results that last up to one year.
3. Laser Skin Resurfacing
There may be instances when men qualify for surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. In these instances, men can undergo both types of procedures to accomplish their facial rejuvenation treatment goals.
Is Now a Good Time to Consider a Surgical or Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedure for Men?
Men young and old can undergo a surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedure to improve their facial appearance. As such, men who are dealing with facial blemishes that cause an asymmetrical facial appearance or other issues can pursue cosmetic treatment options. This allows men to find out if they are eligible for surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Plus, it enables men to take the first step toward achieving a balanced, natural-looking facial appearance.
Is Plastic Surgery for Men Right for You?
Male plastic surgery sometimes seems like a fast, easy way to correct facial defects. However, plastic surgery is not intended for all men, at all times. To determine if facial plastic surgery is a good idea, it is important for men to weigh the pros and cons of treatment.
There are various factors that men need to consider as they evaluate facial plastic surgery procedures. These factors include:
- Health: In certain instances, men do not qualify for facial plastic surgery due to the fact that the potential health risks of treatment outweigh the potential benefits.
- Cost: The patient is responsible for the cost of the male plastic surgery procedure, anesthesia fees and other associated expenses.
- Recovery: Male plastic surgery recovery varies depending on the procedure, and in some cases, can require a year or longer.
