There are many reasons to enjoy aesthetic treatments—to take your selfie game to the next level, to feel your best or to boost your confidence. And cosmetic procedures aren’t just for women.
In recent years men have accounted for more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures—a major increase in the last decade. Men of all ages are opting for minimally invasive or surgical procedures to achieve anti-aging effects that include a rejuvenated look, a balanced nose or a sculpted body. Here are some of the top procedures men are getting:
A popular procedure for men is CoolSculpting. Everyone has encountered stubborn areas of fat that are immune to the discipline of exercise and healthy eating. The world’s most versatile non-invasive fat reduction treatment CoolSculpting is ideal for the chin, thighs, tummy, flanks and even upper arms. Using it can reduce targeted fat up to 23%. CoolSculpting is effective by combining technology with the body’s own natural elimination of dead cells. Also known as cryolipolysis, this cosmetic treatment works by freezing fat cells, killing and breaking them down, then the body flushes out the cells. Completely non-invasive, CoolSculpting does not require anesthesia, cutting or instruments entering the body which means there is no downtime required for recovery. This treatment is a favorite among men since you can get right back to your day without missing a beat. Each treatment takes between 25-60 minutes.
Another procedure that is gaining in popularity with men is rhinoplasty. This surgical procedure is used to harmonize facial features. Since the nose is the center of the face, it is the focal point. As men have sharper, more defined facial features, even small adjustments to the positioning or structure of the nose can make a significant difference in how the features of the face balance against each other. A rhinoplasty is perfect to help if the nose is too big, small, bulbous, crooked or pointed. The most advanced surgical techniques are used to sculpt the nose and make the results natural.
A blepharoplasty or eyelid lift can help when sagging eyelids make a man’s face look prematurely aged or perpetually tired. Not only will it rejuvenate the facial appearance, blepharoplasty can help with vision as sagging skin can impede normal eyesight. The surgery can be done as a stand alone procedure or it can be combined with face and neck lifts or eyebrow and forehead lifts. The operation itself takes about an hour for both top and bottom lids. The recovery can take a week to seven days with normal exercise and activity resuming in three weeks after surgery.
