Plastic surgery continues to grow in popularity among male patients with each passing year. With that said, I thought now would be a great time to discuss some current trends in male plastic surgery that I have noticed among my patients. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I pride myself on keeping up with everything happening in the industry to help my patients achieve the aesthetic results they desire.
The Rise of the Daddy Do-Over
Similar to mommy makeover surgery for women, the daddy do-over is a new trend that allows male plastic surgery patients to get the most out of their aesthetic experience by combining multiple cosmetic procedures into one treatment session. Depending on the patient’s needs, a daddy do-over can include body contouring procedures like liposuction and male breast reduction, facial cosmetic surgery like a facelift or eyelid surgery, as well as nonsurgical cosmetic treatments like Botox® Cosmetic or facial filler injections. This flexibility, as well as the comprehensive results it can provide, is why this option appeals to so many guys.
Younger Men Pursuing Facelifts
Men undergoing facelift surgery is certainly nothing new. In fact, facelift surgery is typically among the 5 most commonly performed cosmetic procedures on male patients. However, I have noticed a trend of younger male patients, millennials, choosing to undergo facelift surgery. This makes sense as long as the patient is a good candidate, as opting for a cosmetic procedure at a younger age means that there will be less visible aging to treat, meaning the results will often be more subtle and less dramatic. And in my experience, subtle, natural-looking results are very important among my male patients.
High Demand For Rhinoplasty
Male patients seem very interested in rhinoplasty surgery at the moment. For anyone who doesn’t know, rhinoplasty (sometimes referred to as a nose job) is designed to help improve facial symmetry by altering the shape and/or size of the nose. The procedure is simple, the results are incredible, and there is very little concern about post-surgery scarring. Additionally, rhinoplasty can be used to correct a nose broken in an accident, or as a result of a sports-related injury.
I hope that my male patients found this post informative. It’s been excellent in recent years to see so many men turn to cosmetic surgery to help feel better about themselves, and I hope this is a trend that continues for many years to come.
