More and more men are becoming proactive when it comes to their looks and self-confidence. This according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which show a steady rise in the number of men seeking plastic surgery in recent years. Here, Dr. Donald Hause, a trusted plastic surgeon in Sacramento, discusses some of the ways men benefit from plastic surgery.
Restored Youth with Facelift and Cosmetic Injectables
Like women, men want to feel young and are willing to invest in plastic surgery to turn back the clock. Facial plastic surgery procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery are effective and long-lasting solutions for wrinkles, lines, lax skin and tissue that often create an aged and saggy facial appearance. These procedures are popular among middle-aged men and seniors who desire to look as young as they feel, whether it is for their own self-image, to keep up with younger co-workers in the workplace, or in the dating scene.
Men who aren’t ready to commit to surgery can still soften wrinkles, lines and other aging signs with cosmetic injectables like Botox and Juvederm.
A Boost in Self-Confidence with Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia, commonly referred to as “man boobs,” is a medical condition characterized by overdeveloped breast tissue and is a source of embarrassment for many men. It is not uncommon for men with man boobs to experience anxiety in public settings, especially at the beach or when wearing tight clothing. Some men avoid going shirtless or attending social events as a result of man boobs.
Male breast reduction surgery removes excess fat, tissue and skin, thereby creating a flatter and more classically masculine chest. Following surgery, men experience a surge in self-confidence, their wardrobe options expand and they feel more comfortable in public and social settings.
Improved Breathing with Rhinoplasty
While rhinoplasty is commonly performed to improve the proportions of the nose, it can also be done to address a structural deformity that impairs breathing. With rhinoplasty, men can feel more confident and breathe easier. Improved breathing often results in better sleep and fewer sinus problems.
Physical Relief and Better Mobility with Post-weight-loss Body Contouring
For many individuals, an unwanted side effect of major weight loss is loose, excess skin that hangs off the body’s smaller shape. Not only is this skin unattractive, but it can also be heavy and make it difficult to move around and exercise. In addition, folds of skin can be a source of painful chafing, infection and rashes.
Body contouring procedures like body lift and tummy tuck are designed to remove loose skin and tighten tissues for smoother and flatter contours. Removing excess skin and tissue also relieves physical discomfort and makes exercise and mobility much more enjoyable and comfortable.
