Women aren’t the only ones who undergo plastic surgery. There are also some men who are extremely fascinated with restructuring, lifting and tightening their skin. Additionally, it is critical that these surgeries be performed by a certified surgeon such as Dr. Joel Aronowitz to guarantee the best results and reduce complications. This guide will provide you with some of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men.
The Most Popular Plastic Surgeries for Men
In no particular order, here are some of the most common plastic surgery procedures that men undergo.
Rhinoplasty is a fancy word for a nose job. It involves reconstructing the nose. Downtime consists of about one week following rhinoplasty. A splint will also be worn during that time. You can also expect to swell once the splint comes off, which can last for several weeks. Many men that undergo rhinoplasty do so to achieve a narrow nose.
Jaw and Chin Implants
Chin and jaw implants can help in making the structure of the face notable and distinguished. The surgery is typically performed through the bottom of the chin, or via the jaw. It can also be done via incisions inside the mouth.
Many men undergo these implants because they desire to have a stronger-looking jawline. You can expect about a week of downtime following the implants and swelling for up to six months. However, you will start to see the shape of the implant in as little as two weeks following the surgery.
Tummy tucks are not the same as liposuction. Tummy tucks are specifically targeted toward loose skin and can help tighten and restructure the abdominal muscles. Patients typically go home the following day but can expect to experience some swelling and bruising in the abdominal area. These side effects can last up to six weeks.
SWAG is a non-surgical, injectable filler. It helps to increase the circumference and width of the penile shaft. This enhancement can gradually decrease over a couple of years but patients can keep it up by receiving supplemental injections.
This procedure typically only takes 30 minutes to complete and men can expect immediate results following the injection. However, it could take up to two weeks to see the final results since the filler does continue to expand. But, most men can expect to see significant improvement in circumference.
This procedure is also referred to as blepharoplasty. It is surgery that reconstructs the eyelids. Many male patients undergo this surgery because it is straightforward and only takes about 30 minutes to complete. Fat and skin are removed during blepharoplasty. You can expect five to seven days for recovery. With most plastic surgery procedures, this one is not permanent as your body will gradually change as you age. The procedure may need to be redone in about 10 years.
Brow lifts can be performed on anyone looking to reduce signs of aging around their forehead. It is also down for those who’d like to achieve a more rigid look.
Many men also receive brow lifts, even though they are also commonly performed in women. There are different types of brow lifts that can be performed and they typically take one hour to complete.
