Despite the common belief that plastic surgery is only for women, more and more men are choosing to undergo a cosmetic procedure that gives them the confidence boost and aesthetic they desire. Just like women, men struggle with the appearance of their body and face, whether it’s hard to target fat in the lower abdomen or hereditary traits like drooping eyelids or weak jaw.
Through plastic surgery, men are finding that they can take charge of their appearance, feel more attractive, and ultimately restore a sense of pride and confidence.
UCI Plastic Surgery offers many plastic surgery options for men to choose from. Below, you’ll find some information about three of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men.
1. Male Breast Reduction
Many men suffer from a condition called gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts). This condition can be due to genetics, weight, age, and a hormonal imbalance in men that causes them to produce too much estrogen and not enough testosterone. If your body isn’t able to correct this condition naturally, gynecomastia surgery is greatly recommended. For your gynecomastia surgery, the breast tissue is removed and reshaped, often with the use of liposuction.
After your surgery and you’re all healed, you can feel proud of your new, contoured chest, which will give you that gorgeous masculine chest and a renewed sense of self-confidence.
There are some areas on the body that fat refuses to let go of, no matter how healthy you eat or how much you exercise. Liposuction is the only way to get rid of these stubborn fat pockets, and one of the most versatile and effective procedures is liposuction.
Using small incisions near the treatment area, the plastic surgeon will insert a cannula into the layer of fat beneath the skin. A cannula is a thin tube connected to a vacuum for the removal of accumulated fat. Your plastic surgeon will carefully maneuver the cannula back and forth to break up the underlying fat for fast and easy removal.
Once your liposuction is complete, you will notice the immediate results of a defined and contoured aesthetic.
3. Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
The appearance of the nose can completely affect the look and composition of your face. Whether you were born with a nose that bothers you (maybe it’s too long wide or long, or you have an abnormal nasal tip) or you suffered an injury, causing it to become crooked. Rhinoplasty can help you improve the appearance and function of your nose. After rhinoplasty, you will hopefully feel comfortable and confident with your new facial aesthetic.
