Wanting to improve one’s appearance is natural for all human beings, not just women. After years of much criticism and restrictions, men are increasingly looking into modern plastic surgery procedures to correct any imperfections and improve their appearance.
The most frequent initial consultations are to discuss facial contouring, face lifts and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), however, there is an increasing number of men who are interested body contouring such as liposuction and tummy tucks (abdominoplasty).
The most popular aesthetic surgery procedures for men are:
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
This procedure is carried out to correct droopy upper eyelids or bags under the eyes which make you look older, sad, tired and worn out and can also, in fact, affect your eyesight.
Face rejuvenating surgery results in more dramatic changes in men than women, especially when they are carried out at the right time in life. The lines and wrinkles caused by external and internal factors over the years are modifiable. Your image plays a vital role in today’s world.
Liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
These procedures are used to redefine the abdomen and chest. Men tend to accumulate subcutaneous fat in the abdomen, flanks (love handles) and, also, in the chest area which results in larger breasts (gynecomastia). Liposuction, whereby a small tube called a cannula (small tube) is used to suck out the excess fatty tissue in the area, can address the problem of gynecomastia. Whilst an abdominoplasty is used to remove excess abdominal skin and fat to flatten the stomach and give it a firmer look.
This procedure is used to better define muscles, mainly in the chest and abdomen, to give a more muscular look to the body. It is achieved by liposuction using micro cannulas (tiny tubes).
Calf and buttock augmentation
With specially designed silicone implants, it is possible to increase and define certain areas of the body which are too slim, flat or out of proportion with the rest of the body.
Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) and Profileplasty
These types of surgery are becoming increasingly popular, especially among the younger generation and depending on their profession. They involve procedures to resolve innate imbalances in the nose-chin-cheek relationship, thereby, improving a person’s profile.
Cosmetic procedures for hair loss
Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body, called the ‘recipient site’. Over the years, this technique has been much improved and has proved to be a safe solution which results in a permanent, natural new appearance.
