Most Popular Cosmetic Treatments for Men

Men have looked to cosmetic procedures more than ever in recent years. Whether they want to enhance their appearance, treat undesirable skin conditions or remove fat; cosmetic procedures have become a reliable route.

The 12 most popular male cosmetic procedures:

  1. Rhinoplasty (Nosejob)– Commonly known as the nose job, rhinoplasty has been a popular choice among men and women alike. Because the nose is one of the most prominent features on the face, a slight bump, dent, misalignment or break can cause distress. Surgery is sometimes needed for functional augmentation, such as if the patient has experienced a nose injury or has nasal airway problems. However non surgical nosejobs allow the patient to augment their nose in 15-minute’s with no downtime.
  2. Male Breast Reduction– Liposuction is a common procedure used to eliminate the fat deposits that occur from excessive weight gain, stubborn exercise resistant fat, or Gynecomastia (development of male breasts through genetics, weight gain or prolonged marijuana use).
  3. Pectoral Implants- Pectoral implants is a cosmetic procedure that is desirable for those that cannot achieve chest development through exercise alone. Implant surgeries such as pectoral, deltoid, bicep, and tricep implants are ways to appear to have muscle mass when exercise fails. A silicone implant is sculpted and inserted through an incision while the patient is under anesthesia. Stitches are then used to secure the implant and weeks of tenderness and bruising may follow. This is becoming an increasingly popular procedure that is almost exclusively male.
  4. Liposuction– Primarily used to remove fat, this procedure has been very common for years. The procedure is done under local anesthesia. After small incisions are made in the desired area, typically the arms, stomach and back for males, a tube is inserted and fat is suctioned and pumped out of the body. Stitches are used to close the incision areas and weeks of bruising, swelling and tenderness may follow.
  5. Otoplasty (Ear Repair)– More commonly known as ear reshaping, this cosmetic procedure is for those that have a genetically undesirable shape or have experienced an accidental tearing. The edges are freshened and stitches are placed to align the ear in a desirable fashion in this typically quick and simple procedure.
  6. Botox– These injections can be used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet and even excessive sweating. This purified paralytic neurotoxin freezes muscles that have been overworked from repetitive expressions. This is a temporary solution that typically lasts three to four months.
  7. Fillers– There is a wide variety of cosmetic dermal fillers that can treat anything from acne scars, hollowed-out under eye bags, deep wrinkles, thin lips or aging hands. These biodegradable substances can last anywhere between six months to a year and have proven excellent results in treating wrinkles and nasolabial sagging (lines formed around the nose and mouth).
  8. Hair Transplants– Hair transplant surgery is a safe and minor surgical procedure conducted under local anesthesia. Two to three sessions spaced about six months apart may be required to produce the most natural looking hair re-growth. Patients can return to normal hair styling and washing just a week after the procedure.
  9. Penis Enlargement- Pills, creams and surgery are the most popular and sought after approaches when seeking to add an inch or two to their member’s length or width. One lengthening surgery involves cutting a ligament that attaches the penis to the pelvic bone. In order to increase width, fat, silicone or tissue grafts can be inserted into the shaft.
  10. Non surgical nosejob– Rhinoplasty or a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men, and for those that are surgery averse or seeking a temporary adjustment before making a permanent decision, can turn to a non-surgical option. Dr. Rokhsar talked about the benefits of non-surgical nose jobs and how the procedure works in an interview on ABC News. Using Radiesse, cosmetic dermal filler, the bridge of the nose can be altered during a 15 minute procedure.
  11. Non surgical eyelift– A variety of laser can be used to tighten the skin under the eye. Ulthera, a non-invasive device that utilizes ultrasound to treat the skin is a popular and effective choice. The CO2 laser is also another viable choice that can cause dramatic tightening, making eyes look younger instantly. Dr. Rokhsar is a leading authority in laser surgery and has performed many non-surgical eye lift procedures, making him a reliable expert.
  12. Acne Scar Treatment– Mild to moderate acne can leave behind a variety of scars that may not be treatable with just cleansers, topical medications and oral prescriptions. Laser treatments or photodynamic therapy are type types of very effective approaches to treating acne scars. The fractional CO2 laser uses a wavelength of frequency to treat microscopic sections of skin at a time to encourage new skin growth for a tighter and more even complexion.
