Cosmetic Surgery Isn’t Just For Women, Men Can Benefit, Too
For decades, millions of women have corrected their eyelids, lifted their faces and necks, and reshaped their bodies through cosmetic surgery, but men have been joining these ranks in sizeable numbers. In a 2017 survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men make up almost 8% of the more than 1.5 million cosmetic surgical procedures, with 118,000+ cosmetic fixes.
Here at Grossman Plastic Surgery, Dr. Peter H. Grossman and his team welcome men to their West Hills, California, practice and offer the latest techniques to lift, shape, and reduce, putting the final touches on their masculine patients.
Here’s a look at the most popular cosmetic surgeries among men.
Though women are more prone to carry stubborn pockets of fat, men, too, have their own issues, which is why liposuction tops the list of cosmetic procedures among males. Using the latest techniques, we loosen and suction out pesky fat deposits from your abdomen, back, upper arms, and buttocks, giving you a slimmer, more comely profile that will look good in any suit — be it bathing or business.
As well, if you’ve recently lost considerable weight, you may be left with excess skin that mars your efforts. Through a tummy tuck, we remove the excess skin, repair your abdominal muscles if necessary, and pull your skin taut, closing the gap to your ideal body shape.
The second-most popular cosmetic surgical procedure is eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. Performed on an outpatient basis in only a couple of hours, we remove excess skin around your eyes that make you look more tired and older than you feel.
We can work on both your upper and lower lids, allowing you to see the world more clearly — and the world to see you back.
Whether due to age or a problem with your hormones, enlarged or swollen breast tissue, medically known as gynecomastia, can be a real problem for many men. Thankfully, we have a solution with our breast reduction surgery, in which we use liposuction to remove excess fat and/or remove tissue from your breasts, giving you a more masculine profile.
If you’re tired of fielding jokes about your prominent ears, we offer otoplasty. During this fairly simple procedure, we can change the size, shape, and position of your ears so that they sit better on your head.
If you weren’t blessed with a strong chin, we can correct this oversight with chin implants. Many men turn to this cosmetic surgery to gain a more confident and assured appearance.
A little lift
Rounding out the most popular cosmetic procedures among men are facelifts. Men, just like women, fall prey to aging skin, leaving you with drooping, wrinkled skin that makes you look older than you feel. Through our facelift procedure, we can tighten up your skin, including around your neck, giving you make a more youthful visage.
Although these are the services that men turn to most, we also offer rhinoplasty (a nose job), as well a full suite of nonsurgical solutions that can improve your appearance.
