It is excellent that cosmetic surgery is advancing rapidly, and so many people have access to these procedures. This topic has been gaining attention worldwide, with growing numbers of male plastic surgery procedures in demand. Aesthetic procedures have become more widely accepted today than ever before, with more men accessing surgical and non-surgical treatments to improve their appearance and self-confidence.
Here are the top 5 cosmetic procedures men are opting for today:
Liposuction is one of the most common procedures in the United States, and it is the second most requested cosmetic surgical procedure after breast augmentation. If you consider this surgery, you want to choose an experienced and board-certified surgeon. Liposuction is a procedure that can improve your figure by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, arms, neck, chin, and cheeks.
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a proper diet and exercise substitute. The best candidates for liposuction are men or women who have isolated pockets of fat in certain areas that do not respond to dieting and exercise. This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia at one of our state-of-the-art surgery centers. Your surgeon will require you to attend your post-op appointment the day after your surgery, as well as your follow up appointments afterwards.

2. Tummy Tuck Procedure
The Tummy Tuck is now one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. for both men and women. The procedure is popular because it helps to remove excess skin from the abdomen and hips that can create an unattractive appearance. While there are many different types of Tummy Tucks, it’s common for patients to request a simple, quick procedure called a mini-tummy tuck (or “mini” tummy tuck). This type of tummy tuck gets performed without removing any muscle tissue or leaving scars on the abdomen. It allows patients to have an immediate recovery and preserve their abdominal muscles.

3. Gynecomastia Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition of overdevelopment or enlargement of the breast tissue in males. Gynecomastia quite commonly affects males at any age. Although enlarged breasts are often associated with being overweight, that is not always the case. Gynecomastia can also involve an increase in breast tissue, instead of fat.
Gynecomastia Reduction is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the breasts. The process gets performed to reduce the size of the breasts to improve their contour. In other cases, excess tissue needs to be removed and the procedure may include both surgical excision and liposuction. Surgical excision can include the removal of excess skin, areola reduction, and removal of excess breast tissue. Patients who are candidates for liposuction to correct their enlarged male breasts can expect to return to exercise and work in typically less than one week. For patients who need surgical removal of the excess breast tissue, it can take between two to four weeks to recover and go back to performing daily routines and tasks.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure that reshapes the nose to improve your appearance. It can change the size of your nose in relation to the rest of your face. A Rhinoplasty can also improve function or breathing by repairing or reshaping structures within the nose.
There are many reasons you might want a nose job or rhinoplasty. You may have inherited a nose that’s too large or wide. Or you have a bump on your bridge or droopy nostrils that make you feel self-conscious about your profile. This surgery has many benefits, including improved self-esteem and an improved ability to breathe through your nose. A rhinoplasty procedure isn’t just cosmetic — some people need reconstructive surgery to repair damage from an injury, congenital disability, or previous surgery. Rhinoplasty can also get done as a cleft palate repair for children born with genetic disabilities affecting their facial structure. Learn more about what to expect after a rhinoplasty here!
Blepharoplasty is the medical term for an eyelid lift. It’s a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. The surgery involves removing excess skin, fat, muscle, and sometimes all three. Usually, a blepharoplasty procedure takes one to three hours, depending on whether the upper or lower lids get done. A blepharoplasty procedure can also be performed in conjunction with other facelift or brow lift methods. Ultimately, this eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel and may even interfere with your vision. You may consider blepharoplasty if:
- You have excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- You have excess skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes
- You have bags under your eyes that are not a result of fluid retention
- You have puffiness in the area around your lower eyelids
- Your lower eyelids show signs of aging, such as fine wrinkles or excess skin
