Popular cosmetic surgery choices for men

The five most popular cosmetic surgery choices for men

It was often considered to be something mainly undertaken by women, but more men than ever are undergoing cosmetic surgery, according to reports across the world.

There are numerous cosmetic and aesthetic treatments and procedures that are specifically designed to rejuvenate the face and body. Some have surgery for anti ageing reasons and others for body rejuvenation.

The experts all agree that the trend for male plastic surgery is on the rise. Mr. Rajiv Grover, a former president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), has previously noted an increase in the number of men having cosmetic procedures over the last 10 years has increased, with 2,417 men going under the knife last year alone.

Below you’ll find more information about the five most popular cosmetic surgery choices for men. If you’d like more information on any of them please get in touch with the team in clinic.

Rhinoplasty (nose job surgery)

Male rhinoplasty is more popular than ever. Nose job surgery is designed to alter the aesthetic appearance of the nose; this can include the shape or size of it. The bridge of the nose may be altered, or the tip may be defined depending on what the patient’s goals are. There are different types of rhinoplasty surgery and which technique is most suitable for you can be defined during a consultation.

Blepharoplasty (eye rejuvenation surgery)

Eye rejuvenation surgery can take shape in two ways: upper and lower blepharoplasty. Lower eye rejuvenation surgery is designed to improve the appearance of below the eyes, for example reducing eye bags. Upper blepharoplasty tackles hooded eye lids and aims to open the eyes and give a more youthful overall appearance.

Liposuction (fat removal)

For men that want to remove body fat, liposuction is a popular procedure. Popular areas to remove fat from including the abdomen and the waist/hips. There are new techniques too including fat transfer with Body-jet that takes fat from one area and replaces it to another.

Male breast reduction (moob surgery)

Male breast reduction surgery is designed to tackle ‘moobs’ or male breasts as they’re more commonly known. Male breasts can form for various reasons including hormonal issues, and before undergoing male breast reduction surgery patients need to be aware of the cause of this issue. A consultation is the best way to determine this.

Otoplasty (ear correction surgery)

More commonly known as ear pinning, otoplasty procedures alter the position of the ears, or how the ears specifically look. It’s often thought to be more common in children, but ear correction surgery is increasingly being undertaken by adult males. It is often more common amongst men due to them having shorter hair and the ears therefore being more on show.

Breast Augmentation Removal With Skin Firming & Tightening

Introducing our next video in the vlog series, we dig deeper into the procedure of breast augmentation removal when patients choose to get a breast revision after a previous breast surgery procedure. In some cases, when a patient goes through a breast enhancement procedure, over time the breast augmentation results can change for several reasons causing patients to consider breast augmentation removal.

Before going through a breast augmentation removal, there are several aspects that need to be considered during the consultation. During the assessment, the following examinations are taken into consideration:

– Mobility for the patient
– Any visible medical ruptures
– Additional swelling around the breasts
– Fluid around the implants
– Irregularity from the original results

A case study is provided in the video which shows the results of a patient’s breast augmentation surgery. The results show that the breasts over time, have been weighed down by the breast implants causing them to drop low on the patient’s chest and develop a large nipple-areola complex. In which case, the patient opted to have a breast augmentation removal only but also wished to have their breasts appear fuller and higher on the chest. In order to accomplish the results, a skin tightening procedure to lift the breasts had taken place and this also improved the size of the areola complex for the patient.

The results of the breast augmentation removal showed the patient’s breasts appearing higher on the chest and the nipple-areola complex appeared reduced. In order for the breasts to be lifted, the skin required to be tightened through a skin tightening procedure where the excess skin was used to lift the breasts.

Having Fat Transfer To Your Breasts After Abdominoplasty Surgery

For the next installment in our vlog series, we look deeper into abdominoplasty surgery and how the excessive skin tissue that’s removed after the surgery can be utilised to perform a fat transfer to your breasts. After an abdominoplasty surgery, when fat is removed from the abdominal region there can be excessive tissue that is left behind. This is normally disposed of as it’s no longer needed. However, as an alternative to breast implants a fat transfer to your breasts can take place so that the excessive skin tissue that was removed can be utilised by combining it with the excess fat.

In the video, a case study is shown of how a patient went through abdominoplasty surgery and chose to have the loose abdominal skin fat purified and injected into her breasts. Her breasts appear younger and fuller whilst the removal of excess skin from the abdominal region tightens the loose skin that the patient had. There’s also further information provided on how long the procedure can take as it can differ depending on the amount of excess skin that the patient has an how large the patient wishes to have their breasts. It’s advised for those who wish to have their breasts appear fuller through a fat transfer, they should do so when they have the abdominoplasty so there’s more fat to utilise.

If you’d like more information on abdominoplasty surgery then you can get in touch by contacting us here or by calling 0161 401 4064. You can also visit our abdominoplasty case study page to see more examples of results from our performed treatments.

Vaginal rejuvenation surgery and intimate cosmetic procedures

Advice regarding vaginal rejuvenation surgery following on from media reports

Last week the FDA launched a review of the way some vaginal rejuvenation surgery devices and treatments are marketed. The news from America quickly made its way to the UK, and left people asking questions with regards to intimate cosmetic procedures.

The US regulators of cosmetic treatments ruled that several device companies that offer vaginal rejuvenation surgery procedures were using underhand marketing ploys to sell the treatments to patients.

Many devices using for skin rejuvenation procedures are not actually approved for intimate use, the FDA explained in a media statement.

“These products have serious risks and don’t have adequate evidence to support their use for these purposes,” said Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the FDA commissioner. “We are deeply concerned women are being harmed.”

Rather than improve vaginal issues, some cosmetic procedures using energy-based devices have resulted in vaginal burns, scarring, pain during intercourse, or chronic pain, the FDA said.

The association also explained it has sent letters to seven makers of vaginal laser devices, giving them 30 days to respond to concerns and provide scientific proof these devices provide safe treatments.

Why are women seeking vaginal rejuvenation treatments?

Women may seek intimate treatments to improve the symptoms of vaginal atrophy, as a result of the menopause, child birth or cancer treatment.

Symptoms can include vaginal dryness and itchy, and stress urinary incontinence.

Treatment of vaginal atrophy and SUI is not the same as cosmetic treatments, designed to be offer cosmetic changes. These may include ‘tightening’ of the vagina internally or skin tightening.

Who to speak to about vaginal atrophy

There are treatments out there that can help to relieve the symptoms of vaginal atrophy but you need to seek the advice of an expert in this field.

If you are worried about your intimate health, in the first instance it’s best to visit your GP. He/she may then refer you to a gynaecologist; these medical professionals specialise in this area of the body and will better placed to help you.

Remember – every body is different, and what’s normal for one person isn’t the same for another. Everyone looks different and unless you have a medical issue there is usually little reason to under go any surgery like this.

If you have any questions or concerns with regards to laser treatments of this kind please speak to a gynaecologist or relevant medical professional.

Breast Augmentation – Breast Implant Changes Over Time

In the next part of our vlog series, breast augmentation results are in question and how the results of breast implant changes over time. It can be common for patients to feel pain and discomfort in the chest region shortly after having breast augmentation surgery. The reason for this is due to the tissue expanding as a result of the breast implants being inserted. This means patients can react differently to the pain which, as a result, can cause breast implant changes over time.

Throughout the video, there are 3 example case studies provided which show the different results of breast augmentation surgery up to a period of 5 years. In the video, there’s a mention of a ‘drop and fluff’ effect on the breast changes which is a common impact that breasts go through after breast augmentation surgery. More detail is provided in the video of what this is and how this impacts the breast implant changes over time. As mentioned, these are case studies of 3 different individuals who have all had different results over time. Each procedure can have a different result and in some cases, the changes don’t occur for over a period of time compared to others.

Mother who hated her size 32JJ breasts that looked like ‘spaniel ears’

Mother who hated her size 32JJ breasts that looked like ‘spaniel ears’ splashes out £8,000 on surgery to reduce them to a G-cup

In July 2017 Mrs McGuire went for her first consultation with surgeon Gary Ross and three months later went under the knife at the private BMI Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, Greater Manchester.

The mother told how her back pain has ‘disappeared’ in the year since the operation and she now enjoys going to the gym, bowling with her children and wearing more fashionable clothes.

She added: ‘Now after the surgery I’m happy, confident and feel sexy. My children are thrilled that I can join in activities with them rather than just watching from the side-lines.’

Mrs McGuire told how the operation has also transformed her relationship with her husband.

‘We’ve always had an amazing intimate relationship but I would get embarrassed about my body, and now I feel sexier than ever,’ she said.

‘This breast reduction has been life-changing not just for myself but for my family.

‘I’ll never be able to repay my husband’s kindness for what he’s done for me.’

Rise in men seeking calf contouring surgery

Gym-obsessed men undergoing £8,000 calf contouring procedure to beef up lower legs

How far would you do to skip leg day at the gym? Mr Gary Ross has noted a surge in men seeking ‘calf contouring’ vanity procedures.

The body contouring surgery specialist says there has been a rise in male patients enquiring about calf augmentation.

Those behind this new cosmetic trend are predominantly gym-goers who are unhappy with their lower legs looking out of proportion with the rest of the body.

Why choose calf augmentation?

Patients may request calf augmentation for purely aesthetic or cosmetic reasons.

Some desire only the medial or inner leg filled out whereas bodybuilders often want both the inner and outer lower leg filled out.

The procedure, which can cost up to £8,000, uses techniques or silicone implants to augment the calves, creating more volume to the area.

What happens during calf augmentation?

During the 90-minute procedure, fat is harvested from one area of the body using the Body-jet device and replaced within the calf.

It’s so popular now, Mr Ross enquiries now surpass those for buttock augmentation.

Mr Ross, who offers calf contouring amongst other fat transfer treatments, told BBC Radio 1 about this male-focused trend and procedure last week.

He told Newsbeat:

“We’re seeing a least 2-3 people a week looking for a change in this lower part of the body. Five years ago it was uncommon to have people come in for these treatments, maybe even less than 1 a month.

“Fat is taken via liposuction from areas such as the flanks before being replaced in the calves to provide volume.”

Gary Ross on calf contouring and calf augmentation

“Surgery can either be in the form of calf augmentation with a silicone implant or fat transfer, which is the increasingly more popular option. The choice of option depends on the pros and cons of the techniques and this needs to be discussed at a consultation.

“There are more risks associated with silicone implants and fat transfer is considered a safer technique, but the procedure may need to be repeated as the fat can reabsorb over time.”

There are other reasons for patients choosing calf contouring surgery including having underdeveloped calf muscles, which include both congenital and acquired causes.

“Congenitally there may be underlying causes such as skeletal malformations, and acquired causes include trauma. It is important to be examined thoroughly and to investigate any underlying causes before considering surgery,” Mr Ross concludes.
