It was once considered taboo for men to care about their physical appearance.
But that is no longer the case.
Over 1.5 million men received some form of plastic surgery in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Men who seek plastic surgery likely do so to improve their confidence, sense of masculinity, and give off a more youthful identity.
Why Do Some Men Need Plastic Surgery?
The common signs of natural aging eventually creep up on everyone.
Men who seek to restore their defined jawline, lessen facial wrinkles, or drooping of their eyelids are just a few conditions that could benefit from plastic surgery.
You may also be a candidate for plastic surgery if you have noticed:
- Your body is changing from smoking, drinking, or genetics
- Facial sagging
- Unwanted wrinkles and creases on your face
- Size or shape of your nose is distracting
Which Plastic Surgery Procedures Are for Men?
Common types of plastic surgery for men include facelift, rhinoplasty, and eyelid lift.
A facelift can rejuvenate your face by repositioning the deeper tissues, removing excess facial skin, and tightening the remaining skin for a smoother appearance.
Different facelift options will target varying degrees of aging symptoms, but they will all help erase fine lines and wrinkles.
Over 200,000 men received rhinoplasty in 2018.
Rhinoplasty helps reshape and position your nose to correct any facial disproportion. It is common for some men to feel their nose is too big that it distracts from the rest of their facial features.
Since the nose is generally the first feature people notice on someone’s face, it makes sense that rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed procedures on men.
Rhinoplasty can also address nostrils that are unflattering and bumps on the nose.
An eyelid lift can help men who have loose and sagging skin that creates folds around the eyes. Benefits of an eyelid lift include reducing fat deposits that appear as puffiness around the eyes and erasing bags under the eyes.
This procedure will tighten the surrounding skin and facial muscles, which will restore a youthful complexion.
