Cosmetic surgery is no longer just for women. A growing number of men are also choosing cosmetic procedures to enhance their appearance. The number of men undergoing male cosmetic surgery increased by 44 percent from 2010 to 2014. During 2014 alone, over ten million cosmetic procedures were performed, and men made up about ten percent of the patients.
Who is a good candidate for male cosmetic surgery?
The ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery will be a healthy adult with realistic expectations. No matter what type of procedure they choose, they should have a clear idea of their goals and understand what to expect.
A healthy patient will be less susceptible to the various complications that can follow surgery. The candidate for a cosmetic procedure should thus be at a healthy weight. A good diet and exercise regime will help the patient recover quickly from the surgery. It will also help them enjoy the results of the surgery for a longer time.
What sorts of cosmetic procedures do men get?
Male cosmetic surgery comes in many forms. Some of the more popular procedures include liposuction, eyelid surgery, a brow lift, facelift and neck lift. During your consultation with our plastic surgeon, you can discuss your goals and find out which procedure or procedures will be right for you.
Are the procedures different for men?
The procedures themselves will be similar to those undergone by women. There are still some differences that both the patient and their surgeon need to consider. For example, men are hairier than women. The surgeon performing a facelift will have to be careful when they tighten their patient’s skin to ensure the beard area remains where it belongs. Given these differences, a man seeking cosmetic surgery should choose a plastic surgeon with extensive experience in operating on men. Our plastic surgeon has years of experience providing both men and women with comprehensive and personalized cosmetic procedures. Regardless of your gender or your goals, Dr. Lipschitz will tailor your procedure directly to your needs.
