In the last few years, there has been a marked increase in plastic surgery for men across the U.S. In fact, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men more than doubled between 1997 and 2012, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). More and more, men are seeking the help of a plastic surgeon for many different reasons.
Male Plastic Surgery
The reasons men seek plastic surgery are diverse, and so are the procedures they are looking for. Some of the most common include:
- Gynecomastia surgery to reduce male breasts, for the estimated one in three men who are affected
- Body sculpting or liposuction to achieve the final touches for those who have worked hard to perfect their physique
- Aging treatments including wrinkle reduction, neck lift, eyebrow lift, or jawline recontouring
- Procedures to correct features that make him feel self-conscious, including rhinoplasty and ear reshaping, or otoplasty
Whatever the treatment, it is clear that plastic surgery procedures are embraced by men, too.
