After ages of ignoring the need to improve one’s physical appearance, men and society in general have become kinder and accepting of this basic human need to look good in order to feel good about themselves. Gone are the times when grooming and surgery were only acceptable for gay men as the numbers for male cosmetic surgeries increased in the past years. Since 2000, men have become courageous and experimental in their search for that youthful look that they need to boost their self-esteem. For 2014, the top male-focused procedures were the pectoral implants and male breast reductions. To know more about them, read the list and their descriptions below.

Rhinoplasty

They say that the most beautiful face is the one that has the best proportion. Because of this, the nose has earned that pivotal part of balancing everything all around it, blending all the other parts of the face with the lower parts like the chin or the jaw. This is the reason why a lot of these procedures are given with chin augmentation. Aside from having the eye for great proportions and the finesse in shaping the nose in a most natural way, the biggest challenge is to improve the appearance of the nose without feminizing it. No man wants to have a dainty nose. Recovery from this procedure is also pretty quick and that means you can get back to your daily routine after a week.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Looking at a person’s eyes allows you to see the soul of the person. Unfortunately for both sexes, aging is commonly seen or indicated by the area around the eyes. Dead give always would be the loose and hanging furrowed skin, the lateral brows that hover the upper eyelids, and the fat pads just under the eyelids with accentuated tear troughs. Such visible effects of aging can be reversed with this procedure. Your upper lids can be restored to its crisp appearance along with the droopy eyelid. Getting rid of the excess fat in the upper eyelid and creating a double eyelid crease can also improve how the eyes look and make it appear bigger for men who naturally have monolids.

Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)

Nothing can be more embarrassing for a man than to have man boobs. Of course these are not the same as women’s breasts, but the excess fat and skin of that area. The nipples are not spared and these tend to feminize the male chest. To properly reshape this part, it is suggested for the man to get a VASER liposuction, which is an ultrasound assisted type of liposuction, and the direct excision of the sub-areolar glandular elements which can be done with or without areolar reduction. Men in their teenage years or those in their late forties and fifties comprise the clientele for this procedure.

Liposuction

The trending “dad bod” actually highlights how the male specie are treated better by society compared to their female counterparts. However, there is no denying that seeing fat in some areas of the body is still off-putting and needs disappear in the soonest and easiest manner possible. Which brings us to the point that liposuction is not for weight loss, but should be considered as a contouring tool for the areas that are difficult to burn. Because of this, the patients should consider changing their diets and increasing their physical activities before getting this procedure. Otherwise, the fat taken away is easily restored.

Rhytidectomy (Facelifts)

Because it is the first thing you look at, the face can easily give the right or wrong impression on the age of a person. Facelifts take care of the visible signs of aging on the face and the neck. This treatment takes care of the sagging in the middle of the face, the deep creases below the lower eyelids and those along the nose that extend to the corner of the mouth, the fat that has fallen, the loss of skin tone in the lower face, and the removal of the loose skin and excess fatty deposits found under the chin and jaw.

Hair Transplant

Nothing says “old” like a receding hairline can. Fortunately, technology has evolved well and has created a hair transplantation technique that transfers individual hair follicles from the donor part or the recipient part. This procedure has become the best one for male pattern baldness and is actually a minimally invasive procedure that will not put the patient at risk. Aside from the hair on the scalp, it can also be used with the eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, and even pubic hair. It is also perfect for scars that were caused by accidents or other surgeries.

Dermabrasion

Men are used to ignoring their skin, thinking that being particular with it gives off a vain persona. What men fail to realize is that skin covers the entire body and should be taken cared of too. Nowadays, men have started paying attention to their skin and it is about time. Poor skin hygiene leads to the buildup of dead cells on the skin, which makes it look really dull and tired. It is also the reason for the skin to be prone to aging and sun damage. And because men shave, irritations and ingrown hairs are inevitable. Dermabrasion is advisable for guys who are 16 and above. And because the treatment doesn’t hurt and there is hardly any downtime needed after the procedure, men have started to patronize it.

Chin Augmentation

As the ideal partner of rhinoplasty in the pursuit of the perfect facial symmetry, it makes the facial sub-units proportional to the other parts of the face. A limited lower jaw projection caused by lack of growth gives the impression of a weaker jaw, which essentially diminishes the masculine appearance. For this procedure, the surgeon should have years of experience and a good eye for facial symmetry to be able to provide the enhanced projection. It can be a combination of an implant with the repositioning of the bone and the liposuction of the jawline.

Pectoral Implants

For some men, the pectorals are the ultimately symbol of their manhood and for some men, it has been the elusive dream. There are certain body types that shall never produce those big solid muscles. The good news is that surgery can now be done to bulk up this part of the body and it takes just about an hour and a half to have it done. An incision is placed in front of the armpit, but under the pectorals and will be covered by a waterproof dressing that lets you shower anytime once the procedure is done. Post-surgery care includes taking it easy for 2 weeks and gradually increasing your activities after.

Otoplasty

More popularly known as ear surgery, it caters to the image problems of those who were born with humongous ears and have become the victims of malicious stares. This procedure can correct the defects in the structure of the ear that the patients were either born with or were caused by injury. Specifically, they are macrotia, which is the rare condition of having overly large ears, protruding ears on one or both sides in varying degrees, and the dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery. If the protruding bothers your child, it might be a good idea to start off at an early age, while the ego can still be saved.
