Plastic Surgery for Males – A New Phenomenon

The stigma of male cosmetic enhancement has quickly become a thing of the past, as men are becoming more aware of their appearance, wanting to look as good as they feel. Whether it be waxing, Rogaine or self-tanning, men have been seeking even more dramatic changes through plastic surgery.

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, between 1997 and 2011, there was 121 percent increase in men receiving plastic surgery procedures. Some of the most popular procedures below show areas that men want to improve and inspire others to break the stigma and seek cosmetic enhancements.


This condition is where the male breast increases in size, resulting in a feminine breast structure. Gynecomastia can occur at any age and can cause a man to feel self-conscious even wearing clothes. Fortunately, plastic surgeons have a straightforward procedure to reduce the size of the male breast, while restructuring the tissue for a more masculine appearance. This correction surgery can be life changing for some men who have dealt with Gynecomastia for years.

Skin Care

As humans, our delicate skin is prone to damage from sun exposure, gravity, and the effects of aging. Loose and inelastic skin with dark spots can make a man look years older than their actual age. Skin care from Scottsdale, Arizona, can include micro-needling, injection treatments, laser light sessions, and more. Whatever the method, plastic surgeons can offer non-invasive options to restore a man’s younger skin with minimal downtime and results that won’t look overdone.

Eyelid Surgery

Also known as Blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the eye area, lifting the eyelids that have started to sag over time. Males generally realize their eyelids begin to sag when people ask if they look tired all the time. Although the surgery is mildly uncomfortable from swelling, careful consultation with one of our surgeons can help any male achieve a more vibrant, alert appearance, which could be a helpful transition for the workplace.

As you can see, plastic surgery offers many options for men to consider, proving that it’s not just a solution for women anymore. Find out about more cosmetic enhancement procedures for men by contacting our office.
