It is a common misconception that cosmetic surgery is only for women. While it is true that majority of the patients cosmetic surgeons deal with are women, there are many procedures that address the needs of many men. Some of these procedures include:
Baldness is one of the more confidence-killing conditions many men have to deal with. Fortunately, skilled cosmetic surgeons have found ways to collect hair follicles from a part of the scalp that is never affected by male pattern baldness. These follicles are then transplanted into the affected region of the head. The procedure effectively allows hair to naturally grow in bald or thinning sections.
As its name implies, abdominal etching is a cosmetic procedure that enhances the abdominal muscles, allowing men to sport a “washboard abs” look. This is usually achieved by removing excess fat deposits directly over the creases in-between the abdominal muscles through liposuction. This procedure works best as a way to make already-present abdominal muscles more pronounced.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, doctors performed 61,771 rhinoplastys on males in 2012. That figure easily tops the list of the most common procedures among men. This procedure aims to manipulate the size, width, and shape of the nose to achieve better facial symmetry.
