As men, we often take pride in our appearance. We want to look strong and confident, whether we’re at work or out with friends. As we age, it can be difficult to maintain this appearance. Gravity and other factors take their toll, and we may start to see changes in our face that make us look older than we feel. If you’re unhappy with the way your face is changing, you don’t have to accept it! There are many facial plastic surgery options available that can help you restore a more youthful appearance.
Why Men Are More Interested in Facial Plastic Surgery
In the past, facial plastic surgery has been seen as a procedure that is primarily popular among women. However, this is changing. The number of men seeking out facial plastic surgery procedures has increased significantly over the past five years! So why are more men than ever before interested in these procedures?
There are a few factors that may be driving this trend. First, men are living longer and healthier lives than ever before. They’re also staying in the workforce for longer periods of time. As a result, they’re facing greater competition from younger workers. To stay competitive, many men feel pressure to maintain a youthful appearance.
Another factor driving the trend is that male facial plastic surgery procedures have become much more refined in recent years. It’s now possible to achieve very natural-looking results with even the most complex procedures. This wasn’t always the case, and it’s likely that some men are more willing to consider surgery now because they’re confident they’ll be happy with the results.
Current Male Facial Plastic Surgery Trends
So what are the most popular male facial plastic surgery procedures? In recent years there has been an increase in men requesting the following procedures:
A facelift can help to improve the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles. It can also be combined with other procedures, such as a neck lift, to achieve even more dramatic results. Male facelifts need to take masculine features into consideration, and since male skin is thicker, require different approaches.
A neck lift can help to improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin on the neck. For men, it greatly reduces the appearance of jowls, which heavily age the face. It is important that the surgeon considers the facial hair line with this procedure, though, otherwise, the results can look unnatural.
Eyelid surgery can help to improve the appearance of drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes. It’s a very popular procedure among men, as it can help them look more rested and alert.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is another popular male facial plastic surgery procedure. It can help to improve the appearance of the nose, whether that means making it smaller, correcting a deviated septum, or improving breathing function.
Facial Fat Removal
With age, many men experience a loss of facial volume. This can lead to a sunken, hollow appearance. Facial fat removal can help to correct this by adding volume back to the face. It’s often combined with other procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift, for the best results.
Male facial plastic surgery is becoming more popular than ever before! If you’re considering surgery, be sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing these procedures on men.
