Changing Opinions about Cosmetic Surgery for Men

Popular Procedures and Cosmetic Surgery for Men

The cosmetic surgery landscape has changed vastly in the last 10 years. Most notably cosmetic surgery for men has seen a year on year rise.

It’s often thought that women are the main driving force in cosmetic procedures, however, in the UK we see more and more men seeking cosmetic treatment.

Popular cosmetic surgery for men may include fat transfer, male breast reduction, and rhinoplasty procedures.

Why Are More Men Seeking Cosmetic Surgery?

This is down to many factors. Social media and the way male celebrities are viewed within the media cannot be underestimated.

With TV shows like Love Island and The Only Way is Essex also proving popular with young men, it’s no longer just about anti ageing.

Rather than male patients all being over 50 like in times gone by many men are now seeking cosmetic procedures at a young age.

What Procedures Are Men Choosing?

This depends on the age of the men. Younger men are seeking body sculpting and facial contouring procedures, including nose jobs.

Middle-aged men who may be unhappy with their ‘dad bod’ are opting for male breast reduction surgery. For the same reason, fat removal procedures are proving popular.

For the older men visiting the clinic, we hear requests for facial rejuvenation surgery. This can include neck lift surgery, facelift surgery or blepharoplasty procedures. These include upper or lower eyelid reduction; in some cases, it’s both.

When Is The Right Time To Undergo Surgery?

This is entirely down to the patient. Some men find the surgery helps as an anti ageing solution, so will likely only seek it later in life.

For young men, it may be that they’re unhappy with their body in their twenties. Every patient’s journey is different.

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.

Male cosmetic surgery on the rise

The treatments behind the male cosmetic surgery boom

It was recently revealed that male cosmetic surgery procedures are on the rise, with both American and UK experts announcing the trend.

Reported on social media and via news channels, this growth in male cosmetic surgery is something that’s been happening over time and is likely to continue. Mr Ross performs a variety of cosmetic procedures which are designed to improve the aesthetics and self confidence of male patients.

Below Mr Ross discusses some of the most popular forms of male cosmetic surgery and answers your questions.

What procedures are included when you say male cosmetic surgery?

There’s a variety of procedures which can be classed as male cosmetic surgery; these depending on what you wish to achieve but are usually regarding the appearance of the face, chest and torso. Procedures may include anti ageing options such as facelift surgery, or body contouring procedures including male breast reduction, fat removal and body contouring.

Who is suitable for these procedures?

This is entirely subjective; a consultation would be needed in order to ascertain suitability. Each procedure offers something different, and what works for one person may not be suitable for another. Overall health and mental wellbeing must be considered prior to any surgery being planned, to make sure the patient is aware of the risks as well as the rewards of undergoing cosmetic surgery.

How much do these procedures cost?

This is completely down to what procedure/s a patient chooses, and how much aesthetic skill is required when performing the surgery. It also depends on the surgeon and hospital you elect to have cosmetic surgery at.

Are there non surgical alternatives?

There are some non surgical alternatives available for various procedures, but these often have limited effect and don’t have the same long term benefits. In the long run they can cost the same as surgery, with the top up treatments that are required. A perfect example of this is a non surgical nose reshaping procedure; it’s initially a quarter of the cost of rhinoplasty surgery but results fade after 18 months and another procedure will be required.

What should I do if I’m considering cosmetic surgery?

Booking a consultation is the first step. Come to the consultation armed with questions and be prepared to talk about why you want to undergo your chosen male cosmetic surgery procedure.

How do I pick a plastic surgeon?

Book a consultation with a plastic surgeon who specialises in your chosen procedure. Do your research and ask to see before and after images to make sure you’re confident in the surgeon’s abilities. Trust is important, so take the time to ask questions and make sure you feel comfortable.
