Plastic surgery is often thought of as something women get done. While statistically speaking, most plastic surgery patients are women, men of all ages from different walks of life seek plastic surgery for a chiseled jawline, tighter abdomen, and even liposuction and facelifts. The list goes on! According to the 2019 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, almost a quarter of a million men underwent plastic surgery that year. Women and men alike seek plastic surgery for the same purpose – body confidence. Today on the blog, Dr. Aviva Preminger, a trusted plastic surgeon for men in Manhattan, discusses the type of plastic surgery men get.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons publishes the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report annually. This report outlines statistical information regarding plastic surgery, including the most popular treatments for men each year. Here are those procedures.
Also referred to as a nose job or medically as rhinoplasty, nose reshaping was the most common plastic surgery among men in 2019. That year, 49,528 men underwent rhinoplasty. The goal of rhinoplasty is to redefine the nose either by removing an unwanted hump, making the nose look slimmer, or straightening a crooked nose. For men, their noses are known to take on a different shape or appear larger as they age, making rhinoplasty an excellent choice.
Everyone ages and signs of aging usually show up in the face first, specifically around the eyes. As you age, the eyelid muscles become weak, causing droopy eyelids, excess fat, and skin around the eyes. Besides making you look older, droopy eyelids or excess fat around the eyes may cause vision impairment, obstructing your peripheral. Eyelid surgery corrects these issues and is ideal for men wanting a more youthful look without undergoing a complete facelift.
Losing weight, and keeping it off, is difficult but becomes even more challenging the older you get. If you’re missing that six-pack you had when you were younger, or you want to go from dad bod to hot bod, liposuction in Manhattan may be the right option for men. You may have long since committed to a healthy lifestyle of eating all the right foods and working out every day, yet struggle to get rid of love handles, extra fat in the breast area, or even desire for a slimmer looking neck, then liposuction can help. This out-patient surgery involves removing stubborn fat deposits by sucking the fat out using a cannula. Liposuction can be performed in the abdominal, back, breast area, thighs, and neck to reduce exercise-resistant fat. Dr. Preminger also offers non-surgical forms of body contouring options using Smart Lipo and BodyTite, which provides fat reduction without a lengthy recovery.
