The world of cosmetic plastic surgery isn’t just for women. While it’s true a majority of those, who undergo cosmetic procedures are female, over a million men receive procedures every year to help enhance their confidence, enhance their looks, and feel more masculine.
Masculinity is often the key when it comes to men’s cosmetic plastic surgery, as many men are afraid their results will result in them having a more feminine aesthetic. This, however, is not the case. Men’s plastic surgery exists to strengthen and improve a man’s masculine appearance, such as the improved aesthetic in these FUE transplant before and after photos, which show a more restored, youthful, and masculine appearance.
Here are some of the cosmetic surgeries that men have done to feel more confident in their appearance.
Hair loss is often a touchy subject for men, as it can be an unwanted visible indicator of aging. According to American Hair Loss Association, hair loss among men is a widespread issue; a whopping 85% of men reportedly experience some form of it by age 50.
An FUE hair transplant uses a digitally operated transplant system that individually takes donor hair follicles from a designated area like the neck and transplants them to the affected balding area.
Modern hair transplants are less painful and more efficient than older methods and usually boast a very high success rate and seamless results.
Male Breast Reduction
All men have breast tissue, and the general idea is that these tissues stay flat against the chest. However, for many men (as many as 65-75% of them), excess tissue can swell, usually due to an imbalance of hormones or weight gain, and cause an unwanted appearance known as gynecomastia, more commonly known as “man boobs.”
A male breast reduction removes this excess tissue and fat and any excess skin removal, allowing for a flatter, more masculine appearing chest.
Tummy tucks are a procedure used to remove areas of loose, sagging skin from the stomach.
Whether through age or weight loss, muscles and skin in the stomach can drop down and give a sagging, loose appearance, even if the underlying area is fit/in shape. A tummy tuck works to firm up the skin, tighten the underlying muscles, and remove any excess leftover skin, resulting in a firmer, flatter, tighter stomach.
Liposuction for Men
Liposuction is one of the most common procedures performed among both men and women, primarily due to its vast versatility. Liposuction is not just performed on a person’s stomach; it’s used for numerous places among the body, including the following:
- Love handles
Contrary to popular belief, liposuction isn’t a weight loss surgery; people rarely lose more than a few pounds from the procedure. Liposuction targets the stubborn underlying fat cells, removing them and smoothing the area out, improving the overall body contour and streamlining the appearance of the area.
