Believe it or not, cosmetic surgery is highly popular among men too. From Hollywood actors to your regular joe, a lot of men are opting for cosmetic procedures. Although the media and news outlets portray women as the face of cosmetic surgery, it is taken by men too. As per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual report, more than 1.3 million men in the United States went under the knife (or needle) in 2018.
Recently we had a chat with a surgeon at Spectrum aesthetic, a cosmetic surgery center based in Miami, and found out more about the popular procedures among men.
1. Hair Transplant
As per American Hair Loss Association, 66% of men experience hair loss in their 30s. Hence, a Hair transplant is one of the highly sought cosmetic procedures among men. It is a surgical process wherein healthy hair follicles are removed and planted to a bald patch. The process takes place over multiple sessions, and each session lasts for 2-3 hrs. It is a time-consuming process, and results take time too.
Men partake in 18% of the rhinoplasty procedure done over a year. Rhinoplasty is the surgery of the nose. It helps in refining the shape of the nose. It also helps to alleviate nasal problems. The surgery takes about 2 to 3 hours, and the patient can effortlessly resume work within two to three weeks of the surgery.
In facelift surgery, loose skin is tightened around the face and neck to give it a more youthful appearance. Normally, men who are in their 50s and 60s opt for facelifts. The procedure can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hrs. In the surgery, incisions are made at the back of the ear to avoid visible scars. Generally, recovery takes two to three weeks.
This procedure helps to remove fat from various parts of the body. Normally, people who are unable to get rid of fat even with exercise opt for this procedure. The liposuction procedure takes about 2 to 3 hours, and the recovery generally takes about 1 to 2 weeks. The recovery rate also depends upon the size of the area treated in liposuction.
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that occurs due to the imbalance of estrogen and testosterone hormones. This imbalance leads to the development of breasts in men. Such a condition tends to affect the confidence of a man. Breast reduction surgery helps a person suffering from it. It takes time to recover from this surgery, and the scars made in the incisions are also visible. Lifting of any heavy objects during the period of recovery is prohibited.
