The Rising Trend of Male Plastic Surgery: Are These Procedures for You?
Posted on January 25, 2022 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Male Plastic Surgery
It’s no longer “taboo” to want to improve your appearance, and that goes for both women and men. Plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments have been a rising trend among men for many years, and the pandemic made it an even more socially acceptable option. Once lockdowns eased, the plastic surgery industry boomed with people looking to enhance or restore aspects of their face after seeing their imperfections reflected at them during Zoom meetings and on social media.
Dr. Carlos Chacon is a San Diego plastic surgeon who can help you achieve your cosmetic goals through plastic surgery or a combination of procedures and non-surgical treatments. Some of the most common plastic surgeries for men include:
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Drooping upper eyelids and puffy under-eye bags can make you look tired and older than your age. Eyelid surgery was the second most popular plastic surgery in 2020, with 325,112 procedures performed on men and women. Dr. Chacon will tighten the eyelid muscles and tissues and remove excess fat to give you a well-rested, younger appearance.
Neck Lift Surgery
Loose skin, neckbands and the dreaded “turkey neck” are a significant concern for many men. You’ve likely worked to take care of your face and skin with sunscreen and moisturizers, but the neck is one of several areas that are often left to the elements, meaning it shows signs of aging earlier. The fat accumulation can obscure your jawline and make you appear heavier. A neck lift removes excess fat and loose, sagging skin while tightening the neck muscles for a youthful, masculine contour.
Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, was the number one plastic surgery in 2020, with 352,555 rhinoplasties performed in the United States. While the procedure has always been popular and is sometimes medically necessary, the “Zoom Boom” may have led many men to nose surgery. Your nose is the central feature of your face, and a misshapen bridge, bulbous tip or large nostrils can completely alter your facial profile and overall appearance.
Men are often celebrated for having a chiseled or defined jawline. A weak jaw is one of several reasons why men seek chin augmentation at Divino Plastic Surgery. The procedure strengthens a recessed chin using an FDA-approved implant or repositioning the jawbone and sculpting the jawline with liposuction.
Liposuction and male breast reduction are also popular plastic surgeries for men, especially those with gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts).
