As a plastic surgeon, one of the most noticeable trends I have recognized over the past few years is the recent surge in the number of male patients I’ve encountered. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, cosmetic procedures for men are now more popular than ever before. Whether this recent uptick is due to societal pressures to retain a more youthful appearance, new developments in the field of plastic surgery, or other reasons, there is no question that men are finally beginning to reap the benefits that plastic surgery can provide.
With the help of a board-certified plastic surgeon, cosmetic surgery can allow men to improve their physique, rejuvenate their look, and create a healthier, more masculine looking body contour. Some of the more commonly-performed plastic surgeries for men include eyelid surgery to help refresh the facial appearance and male breast reduction to treat the effects of gynecomastia (enlarged breasts in men). But there are several other procedures that can all provide their own unique benefits depending on each patient’s specific needs. That’s why I am happy to take some time to explain how men can use plastic surgery to help fight the noticeable signs of aging in the video below.
Regardless of what kind of aesthetic improvement they are seeking, I believe strongly that plastic surgery can unlock a world of possibilities for men trying to improve how they look and feel. With that said, it’s important to remember that every patient is unique. To truly understand how plastic surgery can help restore lost confidence in their appearance, all patients must first discuss their aesthetic goals in-depth with their board-certified plastic surgeon.
