The current generation is becoming more and more conscious about their appearance. In a world where almost everyone is filter and selfie obsessed, people are taking extra steps to ensure they look good in social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
Although this habit is mostly associated with women, it is fair to say that more men are now taking notice of this trend as well. In an age where cosmetic routines and regimes are common, men are now also aiming for the pampered and polished look.
Recently, the male grooming industry has grown after more men began to focus more on how they look on the outside as well as the inside. Men are also considering cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance and it is likely that this trend will continue to grow in 2020.
Let’s take a look at some of the cosmetic procedures that men request most commonly:
It is sad that sometimes no matter how hard one exercises or how many diets you try, you still struggle to reach your ideal body goals. This is particularly stressful for men who work out constantly. Men who desire quick results or feel normal exercise routines are not making an impact often opt for liposuction. This procedure is one of the most common in cosmetic surgery. It helps to complement efforts in exercise and healthy dieting, but it is not a substitute for weight loss. Liposuction helps to remove fat deposits and reshapes areas in the body that include:
- Upper arms
Before the procedure, you need to discuss your goals with a professional cosmetic surgeon who will then provide you with details on how to achieve your ideal self. Depending on the extent of the surgery, patients are able to return to their normal routine between three and two weeks after treatment.
Neck lift procedure helps improve the appearance around the neck area and is ideal to treat conditions such as:
- Neck bands
- Sagging jowls
- Loose neck skin
- Double chin
- Fat accumulation under the chin
The neck lift procedure often focuses on a specific area however the results enhance the patient’s entire facial appearance. After the surgery, patients are advised to sleep in an elevated position for a few days. Bruising and swelling usually subsides within two to three weeks.
Male Breast Revision
Gynecomastia is a condition which affects men where they have an over developed breast tissue. Most men with this condition feel self-conscious about their appearance. The good news is that patients can create an ideal masculine contour through male breast revision surgery. A surgeon makes small, half-moon incisions at the edge of areola and then removes excess fat with a scalpel or liposuction depending on the type of the breast. The healing process takes two to three weeks.
Having your nose reshaped can profoundly impact one’s appearance and self-confidence. A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, involves decreasing or increasing the size of the nose, altering the angle, changing the tip or bridge of the nose, or making other changes. Small incisions are made either inside the nose or at the base of the nose depending on the changes the patient desires. For some people, rhinoplasty not only improves their overall facial appearance, but also improves their breathing.
