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.

More men choosing body rejuvenation surgery

Men are seeking body rejuvenation surgery to reduce ‘dad bod’ appearance

According to a new article via Mail Online, more men than ever are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures in order to look and feel more confident.

The report focuses on Australian men but fits with the UK trends as we’ve seen them develop over the last 6-12 months for male patients undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures to reduce fat and appear more ‘lean’.

Medical director Dr. Jayson Oates told the online publication he has noticed a rise in men seeking surgical treatments, with particular interest in core sculpting. Typically body rejuvenation contouring procedures for this area of the body – known as the mid section – include fat reduction or fat transfer and liposuction, as well as non-surgical options such as radiofrequency body sculpting.

This news from across the world seems to be indicative of trends across the UK for men seeking cosmetic intervention too, with nearly three-quarters of males agreeing it’s now acceptable to undergo anti-ageing treatments, as reported by the Daily Telegraph recently.

Mr Ross said: “The news does not surprise me personally, as the demand generally for fat reduction, fat removal and fat transfer treatments have all increased over the last 18 months. I see male and female patients seeking to re-contour their body with cosmetic procedures, and there’s now much less stigma attached to men undergoing body contouring procedures.”

Popular with adults of various ages, body contouring procedures are be used to reshape specific areas of the body; these include fat transfer procedures where fat is taken from one area of the body and reintroduced to another area that requires sculpting or reshaping.

There are multiple reasons for this increase in enquiries, most notably the rise in male celebrity. With popular actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Jason Mamowa and Dwayne Johnson showcasing toned physiques in films, men are becoming more aware of ‘ideals’ and are more keen to ‘look good’ than ever before.

There is arguably a pressure for men to look ‘in shape’ that we’ve not seen so prevalently before, and for those that are not naturally lean, or haven’t always looked after themselves, the gym and diet changes alone may not be enough. This is where cosmetic procedures such as fat reduction and body contouring surgery can be undertaken.

Fat transfer is set to be an increasingly popular form of body rejuvenation surgery for 2018, and with improved techniques and equipment plastic surgeons are able to offer impressive results. There are risks attached to fat removal and fat transfer – as with all forms of cosmetic surgery – although most patients find the results are pleasing.

Cosmetic surgery is not for everyone, and it should not be undertaken lightly. Fat transfer cannot guarantee perfect results, and it’s vital patients (male or female) seriously consider the implications as well as the rewards of undergoing this type of body rejuvenation surgery.

Do you research, make the best choices for you, and only undergo cosmetic surgery if you feel it will improve your wellbeing and self confidence; it’s not for anyone else but you.

The combination of cosmetic procedures involved in mummy makeover surgery is designed to transform the body after pregnancy or weight loss.

Although abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) and breast rejuvenation surgery in some form, such as breast uplift surgery, are the most commonly combined body contouring procedures, others may be involved if it’s agreed they will benefit the patient.

All mummy makeover surgery treatment plans are designed to be bespoke, and are tailored to suit the needs and goals of the patient. Booking a consultation with Mr Ross is the best way to determine the suitability of this kind of body contouring surgery.

Abdominoplasty as part of undergoing mummy makeover surgery

After pregnancy one of the main issues that may prove difficult to solve with diet and exercise is the abdomen area. Post-pregnancy women can be left with a variety of concerns pertaining to the mid section, including lax, sagging skin and stretch marks, as well as internal issues such as damaged muscles.

As part of mummy makeover surgery treatment plans an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery as most patients know it, is the most common procedure under this umbrella term. There are variants of abdominoplasty (including full and mini tummy tuck surgery) and which form of this body contouring is offered is down to the individual patient.

During abdominoplasty as part of a body reshaping overhaul excess skin can removed/lifted, and the contours of the tummy area can be redefined. A smoother silhouette is just one of the benefits of tummy tuck surgery, but some patients can also lose stretch marks.

For some patients the issue is purely aesthetic, whereas for others the muscles affected by pregnancy may need tightening, and thanks to the versatility of this procedure much can be offered in terms of restoring the mid section.

Breast rejuvenation surgery as part of a mummy makeover

The breasts can be affected by pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, and for many women undergoing breast surgery in combination with tummy tuck surgery can prove to be life changing. Breast rejuvenation surgery may include breast augmentation, mastopexy (breast uplift surgery) or fat transfer, with the goal of improving volume and/or lifting the breasts.

When patients visit seeking breast rejuvenation as part of mummy makeover surgery (or because of extreme weight loss) the main issues are empty breasts lacking in volume, sagging skin and drooping of the tissue; this in turn often makes the breasts sit lower on the body.

Mastopexy and breast uplift surgery can help to reposition the breasts, lifting them to a more youthful position. This can include a breast implant if desired, although often an implant will not be enough to change the projection of the breast.

Additional mummy makeover Manchester surgery procedures

For some women additional body reshaping procedures will need to be undertaken during surgery. These can include liposuction, fat transfer or body lifting procedures – such as brachioplasty (arm lift surgery) and thigh lift surgery – to ensure a good overall result. Any of these can be added to tummy tuck surgery or breast rejuvenation surgery/breast uplift surgery providing a combination approach to your care.

Autologous fat transfer can help to restore natural volume to the breasts (although it can’t replace breast uplift surgery/mastopexy) as part of a wider mummy makeover, and liposuction can help to reduce stubborn fat from areas of the body affected by weight loss and pregnancy. Booking a consultation is the best way to discover which body contouring procedures are likely to give you the best results.

Tummy tuck surgery as part of a mummy makeover

– Abdominoplasty forms part of a mummy makeover surgery because it helps to reduce excess skin, remove stretch marks and improve the overall contours of the mid section.

Other body contouring procedures that are considered as part of mummy makeover surgery can include thigh lift surgery, brachioplasty (an arm lift to remove excess skin or reduce bingo wings) and full body lifting.

Surgical body contouring procedures can be combined to improve the appearance of areas of the body most commonly affected when pregnant; in most cases this includes both the abdomen and the breasts.

Mr. Ross is a body contouring surgery expert in Manchester, helping patients from across the region in areas including Cheshire, Altrincham, Wirral, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Nantwich, Sale, Prestwich and Whitefield look and feel fantastic again.

Who is mummy makeover surgery suitable for?

Pregnancy can take its toll on a woman’s body, affecting both the skin quality and the tightness of muscles. Regardless of how trim or ‘in shape’ a patient may have been before having a baby, the process of gaining and losing weight, as well as breast feeding, can leave the body looking remarkably different.

Of course, this can impact someone’s self-esteem leading to unhappiness – but there are body contouring options that can help. For women unhappy with the appearance of loose skin on the abdomen or empty, sagging breasts post-pregnancy (or alternatively due to the ageing process) Mr. Gary Ross offers a combination of procedures known collectively as mummy makeover surgery.

What is involved in combination body lift surgery?

Designed to surgically improve these aesthetic concerns and boost self-esteem, procedures can include abdominoplasty, liposuction and fat removal, breast augmentation, breasy rejuvenation and mastopexy/breast uplift.

Each surgical procedure offered as part of combination surgery offers patients a different aesthetic resolution, and Mr. Ross will tailor the surgical solutions to ensure your specific goals and issues are addressed.

Tummy tuck surgery: During an abdominoplasty several issues can be improved; excess skin and fat can be reduced, the abdominal wall muscles can be tightened, and – if required – hernias can be addressed. In terms of skin rejuvenation in this area, stretch marks can also be removed or the appearance improved. Abdominoplasty (also known as a tummy tuck surgery) is an effective form of cosmetic surgery that offers long term results.

Breast rejuvenation: For lifting and improving volume in the breasts, mastopexy/breast uplift or breast augmentation can be considered as part of the breast rejuvenation side of mummy makeover surgery. The position, shape and volume of the breasts can change during and after pregnancy, and each concern can be corrected during breast surgery.

A proportion of women will require a breast uplift whilst others may need mastopexy plus breast implants to address volume loss or to increase breast size. In some cases the nipple will need to be repositioned during breast rejuvenation surgery, which is discussed during your consultation.

Things to consider before undergoing surgery

Whether you choose to undergo breast uplift or other breast rejuvenation surgery procedures with a tummy tuck there are some things to consider before committing to undergoing cosmetic surgery. Scaring is to be expected with procedures such as abdominoplasty and breast rejuvenation procedures including mastopexy or breast uplift, but most women choosing this form of cosmetic surgery agree that this is a reasonable trade off for improved self-esteem and body confidence. The recovery process can also be demanding and you will require time away from work.

A consultation is required to determine suitability and every patient is given a bespoke treatment plan designed for their specific concerns. During a consultation you will also learn about the risks associated with the procedures involved, such as tummy tuck surgery and breast rejuvenation, and you’ll given time to consider your options before committing to mummy makeover surgery.
