In the past decade or so, the emergence of ‘male grooming’ in popular culture, combined with the advancing sophistication of cosmetic surgery and the natural results that can be achieved, has meant a rise in men requesting cosmetic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery for men is no longer a faux pas in 2017, and many male patients are turning to aesthetic treatments to subtly enhance their appearance, improve their bodies or rejuvenate their appearance. According to A report from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) indicated that 4,614 men underwent cosmetic procedures in 2015.
Being in the Cosmetic Surgery industry, Mr Jag Chana says that the most popular cosmetic surgery for men are the following:
Liposuction for men
Many men want a healthy body shape, but as men age, retaining their shape can be difficult, and stubborn fat becomes hard to shift. Liposuction subtly removes the fat through very small incisions, with hidden scars and the fat being permanently removed.
Otoplasty for men
Men who have large or prominent ears can be debilitating to confidence and can affect how attractive they look on the whole. The issue can affect men more than women too, where the ears are not easily hidden by the hair. Otoplasty, otherwise known as prominent ear correction or having the ears ‘pinned back’, is very popular amongst patients whose natural ear shape is sticking out.
Blepharoplasty for men
Ageing and the stresses of day-to-day life can take a toll on our faces, and our eyes usually take the brunt of the impact. Prone to bags, sagging or premature wrinkling, the area around our eyes can be quite ageing since the eyes are the most focal point of the face.
Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery removes any loose skin from around the eyes to provide a more awake, taut and youthful appearance.
Rhinoplasty for men
Rhinoplasty, nose surgery is the most popular cosmetic surgery for men with Mr Jag Chana. An undesirable nose can affect the appearance of the entire face, and leave men looking and feeling unattractive. Rhinoplasty can change various aspects of nasal shape including making the nose smaller, larger, refining the tip or correcting problems after nasal trauma. Depending on the type of changes that are required the operation is carried out either entirely through the nostrils or via an incision on the column of skin between the nostrils which is called an open rhinoplasty.
Male Breast reduction
Year after year male breast reduction continues to be a popular cosmetic surgery for men. The formation of excess fat and/or breast tissue in the upper chest can knock confidence, or affect how ‘masculine’ patients feel. Male breast reduction is a procedure that involves a small incision and the removal of excess fat and glandular tissue in order to create a flatter chest.
Cosmetic surgery for men on the rise
Popular cosmetic surgery for men continue to be on the rise and are not limited to those above. If you are interested in male cosmetic surgery or any non-surgical male treatments available, you can book a consultation with Mr Chana who will be happy to discuss and address your needs.
Mr Chana prides himself on discrete, natural results that enhance your appearance rather than make you look like you’ve had ‘work’ done. He also places emphasis on bespoke results for each patient, tailoring your individual surgery.
