Male Cosmetic Surgery Growing Trend

For decades, cosmetic surgery has primarily been viewed as a women-driven industry. However, a growing number of men are now seeking out both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures to improve appearance and boost self-confidence. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 1.2 million men had cosmetic work performed in 2013. The number of men who underwent cosmetic surgical procedures increased 13 percent in 2013 to nearly 205,000 men.

Because men have different skin, bone structure and cosmetic goals than women, you want to choose a plastic surgeon that has specific experience performing male cosmetic surgery. Set up a consultation with Dr. Jason Cooper if you are considering a Palm Beach plastic surgeon for your male cosmetic surgery. Dr. Cooper has years of experience performing outstanding cosmetic surgery for men that exceed clients’ expectations.

Dr. Cooper has outlined below several of the most common male cosmetic surgeries:

Male Breast Reduction: The condition gynecomastia (overly developed breasts) can cause much embarrassment and discomfort for some men. For men who are candidates for surgery, Dr. Cooper will perform male breast reduction surgery to give the man a more masculine look. Based on his physical evaluation of a client, Dr. Cooper will use liposuction, skin removal or a combination of skin removal and liposuction to attain the desired effect.

Liposuction: Men typically seek liposuction for the abdominal area and flanks, which are areas that tend to retain fat despite regular exercise and healthy eating. This option is ideal for men near their target weight who simply want to tone their midsections.

Facelift: Surgical techniques for this procedure must be adapted to suit a man’s anatomy and goals, which can differ from women. For example, men tend to be more concerned with the neck than crow’s feet. Dr. Cooper also tailors his surgical approach to facelifts and neck lifts by making incisions that will not affect how a patient wears his sideburns.

Eyelid Surgery: This procedure is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries for men. Dr. Cooper will preserve your masculine appearance but also eliminate those wrinkles and bags that create a tired, aged appearance.
