Plastic Surgery for Men: In Demand Procedures

Plastic Surgery for Men: In Demand Procedures

Concerned that beauty is a women’s thing?

Today, the increase of competitiveness at the work place and media’s incentive, the male public adheres to value their image more, using the resources that plastic surgery offers.

Due to the advanced techniques of plastic surgery, nowadays the results are natural and without any apparent scarring. Each plastic surgery is performed after an intense consultation. It is each plastic surgeons obligation to perform every plastic surgery with a focus on health, saftey and aesthetics.

According to the Brazilian Society of Plastic surgery, the number of men that undergo plastic surgery is increasing each year. Nowadays at my office, 20% of the patients are men.

Among the surgeries that the men are looking for, the winners are liposuction, nose surgery and eyelid surgery.

Unlike women, men come to my office ready to have the surgery. Their mind is already made. They often do not ask many questions and usually inform themselves about the surgery beforehand. They usually stick to doctors based on recommendations from friends or family and generally walk out of my office with a surgery date scheduled.

Men follow a few rules when searching for plastic surgery:

    * Until 20 years old: nose surgery, Gynecomastia and Otoplasty.
    * 20 to 40 years old: liposuction.
    * 40 to 50 years old: Eyelid surgery and hair implants.
    * Over 50 years old: facelift. 

The growth of silicone implants is visible at my office. The chest area is the most wanted right now. A lot of men have difficulty with the hypertrophied muscle from only exercising. These implants are inserted inside the chest’s muscle, by a small scar of 6 cm that is imperceptible after a few months. Other implants that can be used are calf, biceps and triceps, however they are not very common.
