Don’t think for a moment that cosmetic surgery is just for the ladies. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), in 2014 over one million men underwent a procedure of one form or another.

When it comes to the kinds of procedures men are after, there are two categories: surgical and non-surgical. For men dabbling in the cosmetic procedure realm for the first time, the non-surgical approach appears to be easier for them to wrap their heads around.

“Nonsurgical options for men include Botox, Xeomin and Dysport to relax the relevant facial muscles, and fillers for facial volumization and fine lines. All of these are performed without surgery,” said Dr. Van Natta in the ASAPS release.

Many men would like to remove unwanted fatty deposits such as love handles. It all depends on the desired goal, but a lot of men are interested in dealing with problem areas that diet and exercise don’t seem to impact. If they are good candidates, CoolSculpting might be a good option. Alternatively, liposuction which is a surgical procedure would be another option.

“We see quite a few men seeking treatment for gynecomastia, the development of breast tissue. It is treated with a combination of liposuction and removal of some glandular tissue if it’s needed,” continues Dr. Van Natta.

According to ASAPS, other common facial procedures for men include eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty and facelifts.

As cosmetic procedures become more commonplace, especially with the Millennial Generation, expect to see more and more men addressing their perceived imperfections.
