More men are seeking plastic surgery to enhance their physical appearance and boost their self-confidence, according to recent numbers from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). It’s a rising trend we here at Allure Plastic Surgery have seen in our own Miami office. In this post, we take a look at the most common plastic surgery requests from our male patients.
A Chiseled Chest
An estimated 40 to 60 percent of men have enlarged breasts (gynecomastia). Often referred to as “man boobs,” gynecomastia can cause men to feel self-conscious about their chest and overall appearance. Some men may think twice about buying close-fitting clothing, while others may refrain from taking off their shirts at the beach. If you’re embarrassed by excessive breast tissue, male breast reduction surgery can help you regain confidence by tightening and flattening the contours of your chest. The result: a more chiseled, masculine looking chest.
A Youthful Face
Like women, men are also concerned with looking young and often seek facial plastic surgery to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. Facelift surgery can help you reduce the appearance of “crow’s feet” and wrinkles, while eyelid surgery can brighten puffy, tired-looking eyes. More men are also turning to BOTOX and dermal fillers as quick fixes for signs of aging. Men who spend hours sunbathing on Miami’s beaches also benefit from our skin resurfacing procedures which provide healthy, vibrant results.
A More Attractive Nose
The nose is the most central feature on the face, so it should come as no surprise that many men and women desire a beautiful nose. A well-sized, attractive nose can bring balance to the overall facial appearance. Rhinoplasty can resize a large nose, reshape a crooked nose or get rid of an unattractive bump. Some men seek rhinoplasty for medical reasons. A structural abnormality such as a deviated septum can cause breathing problems that can only be solved through rhinoplasty. In any case, rhinoplasty helps men boost their confidence and live happier.
A Toned Physique
Men frustrated by the appearance of love handles or flabby skin throughout the body often seek liposuction for a slimmer, toned body. Liposuction is designed to eliminate small fatty deposits in the abdominal, buttocks, upper arm and thigh areas that are hard to get rid of with just exercise and diet. For firmer, more toned abs, we offer our patients a unique tummy tuck procedure called The Miami Tummy Tuck, which helps define the waistline and flatten the abdomen. The Miami Tummy Tuck requires less recovery time, no drains and minimal scarring. This allows men enjoy a slimmer, toned figure in less time.
