Top 5 Plastic Surgery For Men
At South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, women are not our only patients. We serve men seeking aesthetic improvement of various areas of their bodies and faces. Although men generally do not like to reveal whether they have had cosmetic surgery, they are increasingly showing interest in these types of procedures. According to data collected by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the following were the top five plastic surgery procedures among men in 2013.
Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, was the most popular plastic surgery procedure among men in 2013. More than 57,000 men had rhinoplasty that year, constituting 26 percent of total rhinoplasty patients in 2013.
#2: Eyelid Surgery
More than 30,000 males had blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, in 2013. Sometimes called “eyelid lift,” blepharoplasty is an effective way to remove sagging upper and / or lower eyelid skin and achieve a more youthful, refreshed look throughout the eyes. Even men want that!
Over 23,500 men underwent liposuction in 2013 to remove stubborn fat that is resistant to healthy diet and exercise habits from their “problem areas.” This number is up 3 percent from the previous year.
#4: Breast Reduction for the Treatment of Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is a condition in males characterized by excessive glandular breast tissue, excess fat and skin throughout the chest, or a combination of these, which leads to the appearance of enlarged male breasts. In 2013, nearly 23,000 men had male breast reduction surgery in the United States.
As with eyelid surgery, facelift surgery is an effective way to achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated look throughout the face. Again, the numbers prove that men, too, want to stave off the hands of time: More than 12,500 males underwent a facelift procedure in 2013 — 7 percent more than the previous year.
