Aesthetic Surgery for Men
- Posted on: Jul 15 2017
Just a few decades ago, the average plastic surgery office would largely revolve around women. The interest that women have in cosmetic procedures has not diminished. What we have seen in the past several years is a substantial increase in the number of men who are stepping into the realm of cosmetic plastic surgery. Men are more open about their desire to look younger and feel more confident in their appearance. As a result, cosmetic procedures have begun to center on their unique needs.
The Sculpted Physique
Many men work hard to build muscle in all the right places and maintain a suitable BMI. In many cases, genetics are working against them. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a large number of men are taking matters into their hands.
In 2015 alone, 40 percent of the breast reduction surgeries performed in the United States were conducted on men. Male breast reduction accounted for more than 25,000 of the nearly 70,000 breast reduction procedures that year. The benefits of male breast reduction extend far beyond the physical sculpting that is achieved. Men who rid their body of excessive breast tissue report feeling much more confident and satisfied with their quality of life.
Beyond Breast Reduction
It isn’t only stubborn fat across the chest area that concerns men. Regardless of age, men prefer to keep that V-shape that indicates their masculine nature. Liposuction can help with this. Several new technologies have been developed to refine the process of removing unwanted fat from an area such as the back, flanks, abdomen, chin, and more. Men who choose our NYC cosmetic surgery practice have to option for the technique that will help them attain the sculpted physique they would like.
The angular nature of a man’s jaw line is a telltale indicator of masculinity and youth. With age, tissue from the forehead on down begins to lose is resiliency. The neck may be a point of concern when firmness beneath the chin diminishes. This allows fat that has accumulated in the area to appear more prominent. One way to sculpt the chin is to melt fat with Kybella. This injectable treatment takes a few sessions and some months to give the ultimate return on investment. Another option for sculpting the lower face is to remove small pockets of fat through liposuction and tighten the skin on the neck with surgical lifting.
