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.

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:
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.
