Did you know that the Romans were practicing versions of plastic surgery on their lips, teeth, eyes and noses back in the first century BCA? Today, many people receive plastic surgery, and over a million of US patients are men. The most popular procedures for male patients are nose reshapings, eyelid surgery, and liposuction. Here is some information about popular procedures.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from the body. The abdomen, thighs and butt are the most common areas for removal. A good candidate for liposuction is a healthy adult who has a quality diet and exercise program already in place. There is a limit to how much fat can be removed from the body, since taking out large volumes can not only be complicated, but also life threatening. New liposuction techniques often involve lasers, and they help to reduce the bleeding and bruising that occur afterward. The complication rate for this surgery is under one percent. It is also recommended that people considering tummy tuck or liposuction should not get them at the same time.
2. Eyelid surgery
As noted, another popular mens plastic surgery technique is eyelid surgery, which has seen a four percent increase in popularity over the last year. As men age, sagging and drooping of the eyelid area is common. There are several variations of this procedure. It can remove excess skin hanging over the eyes, bags under the eyes, or wrinkles of the skin surrounding the eye. The complication rate for this surgery is similarly far below one percent.
3. Arm reduction
Have you heard of arm reduction surgery, also known as brachioplasty? For this surgical procedure, the upper arm is reshaped in order to reduce the sagging effects of old age. This results on a more toned appearance. This procedure can also be helpful for patients who have lost a lot of weight, since this often results in large amounts of baggy skin. Although this procedure is most popular for women, the mens plastic surgery movement is beginning to embrace it more and more as a way to improve overall appearance. References.
