Male Plastic SurgeryPlastic surgery is often associated with women, especially given the popularity of breast implants/breast augmentation surgery across the globe. Yet more and more men are undergoing plastic surgery procedures in order to enhance their appearance and fight advanced signs of aging. When you meet with a skilled Edina plastic surgeon, you’ll be able to discuss all of your options for aesthetic enhancement in full detail, getting all of your questions answered and all of your concerns addressed in full.

How common do men get plastic surgery?

More common than you may think. According to statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men underwent nearly 800,000 plastic surgery procedures in 2011. This accounted for approximately 9% of all plastic surgery procedures performed last year. This is not an insignificant number, and it’s why you should meet with a plastic surgeon serving Minnetonka should you be interested in enhancing your appearance. Let’s look at some common anti-aging and aesthetic enhancement surgeries that men commonly undergo.

Liposuction and Male Plastic Surgery

Liposuction was the most popular male plastic surgery performed last year. During liposuction, stubborn pockets of fat that will not respond to diet or exercise are removed from the body through targeted means. It is suctioned out safely, leaving you looking slimmer, trimmer, and fitter in the process.

Rhinoplasty and Male Plastic Surgery

Rhinoplasty is another common male plastic surgery procedure. During an Edina rhinoplasty, a surgeon is able to resculpt, reshape, and recontour the appearance of the nose, making it less prominent or more appealing in appearance. The surgery can be performed for reconstructive reasons as well following a broken nose, and may also be performed to address issues with the nasal cavities.

Facelift and Male Plastic Surgery

Though wrinkles can give you a certain distinguished look, too many wrinkles can leave you looking prematurely old and very haggard. That’s where a facelift comes in. Facelift surgery is performed to enhance the overall appearance of the middle section of the face. Crow’s feet and sagging of the upper cheekbone area can be addressed quite easily and effectively. There are other facial lift surgeries as well that can treat different areas of the face.

Tummy Tuck and Male Plastic Surgery

After losing a lot of weight, there is usually a lot of loose skin in the lower abdominal area to deal with. In order to address that, there’s tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). This surgery will remove excess skin and tissue from the lower abdominal area, ensuring that your figure is slimmer and better proportioned.

Male Breast Reduction and Male Plastic Surgery

Sometimes men have issues with their chest. Excess fat and tissue can make the pectoral area appear effeminate. This condition is called gynecomastia. In order to treat gynecomastia, a male breast reduction surgery can be performed. Male breast reduction surgery will involve the use of liposuction and other options to reduce the amount of tissue in the chest area.
