Popular Cosmetic Surgeries for Men

Posted by Dr. Litner and Dr. Solieman on March 17th, 2016

Years ago, the mention of “going under the knife” could lead to raised eyebrows and hushed whispers. However, thanks to today’s advanced techniques that can yield natural-looking results, the stigma associated with cosmetic surgery is rapidly disappearing–especially among men.

More men are choosing to have facial cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons. With healthier lifestyles and greater longevity, men are paying equal attention to their looks. Cosmetic surgery is increasingly accepted as a tool to help age gracefully. Improved presentation at work is a frequent reason also cited by men for wanting anti-aging procedures in order to appear more competitive with their younger colleagues.

In fact, men constitute a growing percentage of cosmetic surgery patients. According to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, men account for 25% of all cosmetic nose surgeries (rhinoplasty), 14% of all eyelid surgeries (blepharoplasty), and 9% of all facelifts (rhytidectomy). Add in the increasing popularity of minimally-invasive procedures–such as fillers and relaxants–and men are growing part of the number of Americans opting for cosmetic work.

Popular Surgeries for Men: Facelifts and Eyelid Lifts

Among males, two of the most common age-related complaints are lose skin on the face and tired eyes. Consequently, facelift and eyelid surgeries are on the rise for male patients.

A facelift (rhytidectomy) is a procedure designed to lift and tighten the facial muscles and skin. A facelift can restore lost definition in the face and strengthen or augment a weak jawline. Men often undergo a facelift procedure to:

  • Improve facial definition and reverse signs of aging
  • Rejuvenate their overall appearance
  • Tighten lax skin
  • Correct a double chin
  • Add structure to the jawbone (a facelift combined with a chin implant procedure)

An eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is a delicate but effective procedure that can revive the eye area. Droopy eyelids can add years to the appearance. An eyelid lift is a great way to:

  • Trim excess, sagging skin on the upper eyelids
  • Reduce lower eyelid bags
  • Open up and brighten the eye area
  • Reduce puffiness

In addition, Rhinoplasty is a popular procedure for men at any age and can often be combined with anti-aging procedures.

At Beverly Hills Profiles, Drs. Litner and Solieman often combine procedures to optimize results. Our male patients often benefit from a holistic approach, one that considers the overall impact of a cosmetic change. For example, we may recommend a mini face lift with an upper eyelid procedure to balance the effect and produce natural-looking results. When elegantly done, a rhinoplasty combined with a chin augmentation and facelift can be transformative.
