Catering to this ever growing demand, most cosmetic surgery clinics have now created options for men like hair removal, tummy tucks, facelifts etc.
Here are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men:
Laser Hair Removal
Shaving or waxing body hair is a tiring process and the hair removal isn’t permanent. Shaving takes a lot of time and there are areas that you can’t reach by yourself, like your back. Waxing on the other hand is painful and leaves you hair free only for 2-3 weeks. Laser Hair Removal is the best option as it is relatively pain-free and quick. The procedure is also permanent, meaning after a few sessions, you are left completely hair free.
Laser Hair Removal is also used to reduce the five o’ clock shadow and remove unwanted hair on the neck. The most common areas men get lasered are the abs, back, neck, shoulders and chest.
Facial Cosmetic Procedures have become popular among men for a number of reasons – they might want to get rid of aging effects like wrinkles or have insecurities about facial features. Whatever the reason, more and more men are opting for facial cosmetic surgeries to look better. The most common facial procedures among men are botox, facelift, laser skin resurfacing and rhinoplasty. These procedures are relatively safe and affordable.
Liposuction is a method to remove fat deposits that cannot be removed by dieting and exercise. These fat deposits are usually present in the abdomen, knees, ankles, thighs and buttocks. The surgery is quick, and the recovery time is only 2-3 days. The full benefits of the surgery are seen only after 6 months to a year after the surgery but patients agree that it is worth the wait. Studies show that after getting liposuction, your psychological drive to be fit also increases, helping you stay healthy for a long period of time.
Known popularly as a ‘Tummy Tuck’, Abdominoplasty is a body contouring surgery where excess skin and fat tissues are removed from your abdomen, making it tighter. Patients who opt for this surgery are usually men who have lost a significant amount of weight and have excess skin. To get this surgery done, you need to be of average weight and have weak muscles and excess skin. There is minimal scarring and the scar is placed on the lower abdomen, making it hard to see.
Male Breast Reduction
Some men have a medical disorder where there is swelling in the chest due to an imbalance in the hormones. This disorder is called Gynecomastia. Others have swollen breasts due to fat or because of aging. Breast reduction depends on the reason why there is swelling. If it’s swollen because of excess fat, then liposuction would be recommended. If it happens because of Gynecomastia then a small surgery is required. After the surgery, the chest will be tighter and look fitter.
There are other procedures that are offered for men such as Arm/Thigh Lift, Forehead and Eyebrow lift, and Pectoral Implants all of which make sure that you are happier with your body.
