5 Cosmetic Procedures Men are Having Right Now

Step aside ladies, the guys are looking to get a few tweaks to spruce up before the holidays. Feeling good about your body isn’t something reserved for women. In fact, according to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2017, more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on American men. And that number is increasing.

Why are more men having cosmetic procedures? For one thing, the stigma that once kept many men from even broaching the subject is becoming less and less of an issue. Secondly, both women and men are in the midst of a “tweakment.” There’s also the notion that aging men are vying to look as young as they feel while also competing with a younger workforce coming into the fold. They want that “executive edge.”

Everyone wants to, and should have, the body they desire. At The Derm Group, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, or Pennsylvania can help men achieve their perfect body goals.

5 Popular Cosmetic Surgeries for Men

1. Chin Implants

It’s all about that masculine jawline. Of course, not every guy was born with one. That’s where genioplasty, or chin implants, come in. These implants can correct a recessed chin to create a more well-defined profile while balancing other facial features.

2. Hair Transplant

The unfortunate truth is many men will experience hair loss as they age or with the onset of alopecia, but that doesn’t mean they have to give up on having thick, style-ready locks. A hair transplant, which is an increasingly popular procedure, takes hair from one area of the body (called the donor site) and moves it to the area that needs it most.

3. Body Contouring

Just as women want a well-defined physique, men too are looking to contour their bodies to achieve more masculine traits. That may include a V-shape body, broad shoulders, or flat abs. This is usually done via liposuction where unwanted fat is removed from various parts of the body.

4. Male Breast Reduction Surgery

If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your chest, a male breast reduction is the best way to treat gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts). Whether you have had a recent weight loss, but your chest still has excess tissue, or your genetics have left you predisposed to excess fat and glandular tissue, this procedure can be performed safely for young adults and men alike. You’ll walk away with dramatic results that’ll give you the confidence you’ve been missing.

5. Facelift or Neck Lift Surgery

To tighten loose skin and remove excess fat around your jawline, chin, or neck, a facelift or neck lift can help you achieve a younger appearance. They can enhance masculine characteristics by preserving the Adam’s apple, which may not be visible, and defining the chin for a stronger jawline.
