In the past, plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes was mostly a thing that women did to look better. The idea of men getting plastic surgery was, in the eyes of many, just something a man did not do. Today, this idea has changed, and there has been a dramatic shift away from the more restrictive gender norms of yesterday. It is now more common for men to undergo cosmetic procedures for various cosmetic reasons. As is to be expected, this trend caught on and more and more men are beginning to ask the question of what plastic surgery options are right for them. The following are some common plastic surgery options for men.
If you were to look at the eyes of some older men, the situation looks dismal to say the least. Drooping eyebrows, lines, wrinkles and loose skin paint a picture of men who look tired and worn-out for their age. If a man gets looking too old and wrinkled, this can cause him to be pressured over retirement around his place of employment. Additionally, single or widowed elderly men would have an easier time with women in social situations if they simply looked younger. By undergoing eyelid rejuvenation, the wrinkles and lines disappear or lessen, the skin is tightened up and a man’s face can come through the process looking much younger than he really is.
Liposuction was originally developed as a technique for body contouring. This makes liposuction a great plastic surgery option for men who are attempting to make the body look sleeker. For a man, this generally means touching up the flanks and the abdominal region. If you were hoping to use liposuction to lose massive weight, it is better to diet and exercise to obtain a favorable outcome first.
Some men have poorly shaped noses. These noses not only cause these men to have breathing issues, but they also find they have difficulty sleeping. Rhinoplasty is a surgical option for men where the plastic surgeon comes in to reshape the nose to improve overall airway functionality. Often this will help these men to get a better night’s sleep without the snoring factor getting in the way. This can also improve sinus function and appearance as well.
A Neck Lift
One of the most popular plastic surgery options for men is a neck lift. If you have a lot of sagging skin obscuring your jaw and the point where the neck and the chin come together, this may prove to make you look far older than you really are. A neck lift can be used to address this.
Other plastic surgery options for men include gynecomastia surgery, ear surgery, and cheek augmentation, just to name a few. You can learn more by scheduling a consultation at Clinique of Plastic Surgery and Laser Institute in St. Petersburg. Contact us today to book your appointment!
