Which Plastic Surgery Procedures are Most Common for Men?

The plastic surgery procedures that men are having often vary somewhat from the procedures that women request. Many men consult a plastic surgeon to find out about rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job. Facial rejuvenation, such as facelifts and eyelid surgery are common cosmetic surgery that men request, and liposuction is also common.

One of the most common plastic surgery procedures that men require is a male breast reduction.  “Gynaecomastia” is a condition of excess breast tissue in men, and is very common in puberty through to twenties. As men age they may also start to notice enlargement in the breast tissues as well. Removing the excess breast tissue can help reduce the size of the breast.

In addition to traditional plastic surgery techniques, many men are choosing minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Anti-wrinkle injections can help prevent frown lines and wrinkles, making you appear younger and less tired or angry. Laser hair removal is also becoming very popular with men, as is microdermabrasion or chemical peels to improve facial skin quality, leaving the skin smooth and more youthful. Dermal fillers can help fill in lines and wrinkles, plumping up the skin and erasing signs of age in the face and other areas.
