What Are the Most Popular Procedures for Men?

If you’re wondering which cosmetic procedures may be good for you, here are the seven most popular and transformative procedures for men, according to the 2020 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report.  

1. Rhinoplasty 

Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is the most popular procedure for men and women nearly every year. The biggest reason for this is that the nose is central to the face; this means that aesthetic issues with the nose can detract from the entire facial appearance. 

Rhinoplasty surgery can correct nasal imperfections caused by injury (a broken nose) or issues that men have had since birth (nasal humps, noses that are too large or small for their face, upturned or downturned nasal tips, etc.). 

With this procedure, cartilage may be added or removed, and the nose will be sculpted so that it balances with your entire face.

2. Blepharoplasty 

Fat can accumulate in the eyelids as men age, causing eyelids to sag and droop. This sagging skin can make men look older and angrier, and it can even obstruct their vision (if the sagging skin is bad enough). 

In addition to droopy eyelids, many men can find themselves frustrated with dark “bags” under their eyes, which can cause them to look tired and worn out. 

Luckily, these concerns can be corrected with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Upper blepharoplasty (for the upper eyelids), lower blepharoplasty (for the lower eyelids), or a combination of both can be performed to remove and reposition fat and muscle so that your eyes give you a more youthful and handsome appearance. 

3. Cheek Implants

Men desire a sculpted and chiseled facial appearance. However, whether biologically or from age, some men do not have defined cheekbones. This can cause their faces to look imbalanced and disproportionate. 

Cheek implants can be placed to restore (or create) volume and definition in the cheeks so that you look and feel more confident with how others see you.

4. Liposuction 

Nearly everyone has heard of liposuction, but not every man understands the transformative results that liposuction can achieve. 

Liposuction surgery can be performed as a standalone procedure, or it can be used in conjunction with other procedures (including tummy tuck surgery). 

Liposuction reduces unwanted pockets of subcutaneous fat from various areas of the body to help men achieve a more trim and contoured appearance. With your thinner appearance, you can find yourself feeling more comfortable, whether at the gym, pool, or grocery store.

5. Otoplasty (Cosmetic Ear Surgery) 

Men of all ages (including children) can become frustrated and even embarrassed with the appearance of their ears. Maybe their ears are too large for their face, or they stick out too far from the sides of their head. 

Whatever the concern, otoplasty (ear surgery) can help you have ears that are balanced to the size of your face.

6. Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)

Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop excess fat and breast tissue (or “man boobs”) in their chests. Gynecomastia can make men of all ages feel self-conscious. And what’s even more frustrating is that there’s no natural way to get rid of this condition. 

However, gynecomastia correction surgery is a procedure in which the fat and excess tissue are removed so that you can achieve the more masculine chest appearance you desire. 

7. Facelift 

As we age, wrinkles and fine lines develop on our faces, and the skin on the mid and lower face begins to lose its elasticity and sag. 

Facelift surgery is performed to reposition underlying tissue, remove excess and sagging skin, and tighten the remaining skin to minimize (and even eliminate) skin creases. After your facelift, you can look forward to a more revitalized and youthful facial appearance.

 Additionally, a facelift can help you achieve a more sculpted jawline so that you can have that defined and masculine appearance you’ve always wanted.
