Statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that more men are undergoing cosmetic surgeries than ever before. And why not? Men deserve to look and feel confident about themselves, too. We’re happy that more men are taking their looks seriously and understanding what plastic surgery can do to enhance their lives.
And it’s not just celebrities and politicians seeking plastic surgery services. The type of guys that many plastic surgeons (including us) are noticing in their practices are guy’s guys—manly men who simply want to look as great as they feel.
There are so many different procedures that men can benefit from at a plastic surgeon. One of our most popular at Pope Plastic Surgery is gynecomastia surgery. Dr. Pope specializes in this surgery for men who have excess chest fat that resembles more of a woman’s breast than a man’s chest. The results are not only breathtaking, but life-changing for men plagued with this embarrassing condition that cannot be cured from diet or exercise.
Other popular procedures for guys include injectables like Botox and Juvederm mainly because they are less invasive and require little recovery time. But according to ASPS statistics, the top ten fastest growing cosmetic procedures among men aren't injectables—they are minimally invasive surgeries.
The following list shows the fastest growing surgical and minimally invasive procedures from 2010 to 2011:
- Facelift – 14% Increase
- Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) – 11% Increase
- Soft Tissue Fillers – 10% Increase
- Botulinum Toxin Type A – 9% Increase
- Liposuction – 7% Increase
- Breast Reduction in Men – 6% Increase
- Eyelid Surgery – 4% Increase
