In today’s world, cosmetic procedures are no longer just for the girls. Many men are electing to have a bit of work done. The following are brief but concise explanations of what cosmetic procedures are popular for men and why they are being opted for.
Most Common Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
Fillers for Men
More males then ever are opting to get filler injections. Gone are the stigma’s of a male getting a cosmetic procedure done, and with it younger faces can last longer then ever. Properly done treatments can erase years of aging with little to no downtime or side effects. In today’s world where jobs are scarce and competition high, every advantage is useful. A syringe is used to make multiple injection in the face to help even out aging lines and bring a more youthful appearance to the masculine face.
Microdermabrasion for Men
In recent studies, men show greater response to Microdermabrasion than women. It is so simple, there are many at home kits. This procedure also has no downtime associated with it. Regular shaving and general lack of care has left many males with skin that looks far older then their years. Microdermabrasion can bring that young vibrant man back to the surface, for all to see, by simply intensively exfoliating away layers of dead and damaged skin.
Laser Hair Removal for Men
Many men are embarrassed about the amount of back hair or chest hair. Laser hair removal is long lasting, only takes 30 minutes for a treatment, and will take on average only 8 sessions for permanent results. It works by killing the hair at the root, but not damaging or destroying the follicle. The result is gradually finer hair until none is produced at all.
Chemical Peel for Men
If you are late to the skin treatment game, your skin is likely rather beat up and battered from the rough from daily shaving. A Chemical Peel is like a fresh start that reveals almost baby soft skin. It has to be done in office, but like many basic cosmetic treatments, has no real down time.
Nose Reshaping / Male Rhinoplasty
Throughout history sculptors have worked tirelessly to capture the cheekbones and noble noses of great leaders of the past. The nose is literally the central point of the face. For some the nose is something they are embarrassed about, or worse has imperfections that inhibit breathing. The procedure can be done as out patient, and you’ll be back at work in two weeks, able to return to a gym in 3, and back to full capacity in a few months time.
The following are brief synopses for five of the most popular procedures being done to men today.
Baldness is something that affects millions of men and can have devastating affects on their confidence. Hair transplantation can range in price from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on how extensive the treatment is.
The main reason why its becoming increasingly popular and available is that it is the most effective treatment available. It literally involved taking viable and working hair follicles and placing them, either in groups or strips, into areas where the follicles have ceased to function. The transplanted follicles continue to grow as normal with no adverse affects.
The best way to describe laser skin resurfacing is to think of sculpting with clay. A highly skilled and trained doctor removes layers of skin with a laser, like a sculptor shaves away fine layers of clay to perfect their masterpiece.
There is about a day or two of down time to recover from it, mainly depending on the extend of treatment. The results can literally be like shaving away scars, imperfections and years away from your face.
Most commonly associated with woman’s cosmetic surgery, liposuction is available through a variety of methods.
Traditionally, metal tubes are inserting under the skin and solutions are injected in then pulled out along with excess fatty deposits. In other methods, the treatments are delivered purely externally using such things as extreme cold and ultrasonic waves.
If you’ve been heavy, lost weight, had more definition and lost muscle tone, or if you’ve suffered from a hormone imbalance, you may have what appear to be the male version of breasts.
Gynecomastia is a type of operation that can remove the excess tissue and reshape the chest and pectoral area into the proper masculine form.
As people age the skin can become loose and sag, especially around the eyes. Blepharoplasty is a fairly broad term for procedures that involve restructuring the eyelids. The procedure can be done to help improve eye sight and give a more youthful appearance.
Men who worked outside a lot during their youth, may find this type of procedure helpful in reducing the damage that squinting, and sun exposure, may have had with the skin around their eyes.
