Many people have the misconception that plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments are only meant for women. And while it’s true that women tend to undergo more procedures than men every year, that doesn’t mean that men can’t benefit from the same kinds of aesthetic treatments as women, whether it be surgical or non-surgical.

Both men and women alike struggle with their appearances and desire to look and feel different. 

Well, the good news is that cosmetic procedures can successfully treat and correct the issues that frustrate men. That is why almost 300,000 male cosmetic surgical procedures and over 800,000 minimally invasive cosmetic treatments for men were performed in 2020. However, with so many options, it can be tough for men to decide what procedures and/or treatments are right. 

To help, below you will find information on several of the most popular and successful cosmetic procedures available.

Great Body Sculpting Surgical Procedures for Men

For men looking for the most effective and long-lasting correction for their body contour insecurities, surgical procedures are the way to go. 

While surgical procedures do entail more commitment than non-surgical ones (anesthesia, incisions, recovery time and downtime, etc.), you can feel confident that your aesthetic appearance will be transformed.

Looking for Fat Reduction?

Men develop excess pockets of fat across their bodies. Common areas include the abdomen (beer belly) and waist (love handles). These can be challenging to address.

Liposuction fat reduction surgery is one of the most important and versatile cosmetic procedures available to men. That is because it can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with other procedures (as we will discuss later). 

Liposuction is used to rid the body of stubborn fat (the fat that doesn’t go away, no matter how dedicated you are to diet and exercise). 

This procedure requires a small incision to be made in the treatment area. Through this incision, a small tube called a cannula is inserted into the body to loosen and then vacuum out the subcutaneous fat.

Looking for a Tighter Midsection?

Whether you want to call it a “beer belly” or a “flat tire,” many men struggle with extra fat and sagging skin in their midsection.

Tummy tuck surgery is a transformative procedure that can help you achieve a slimmer, more contoured abdomen. After your tummy tuck, you can look forward to looking and feeling your best so that you can go to the beach or pool without worrying about your stomach.

For your tummy tuck, Dr. Nukta will make an incision just above your pubic area. Depending on the type of tummy tuck you are undergoing (mini tummy tuck or a traditional tummy tuck), this incision may stretch from hip to hip and even include an additional incision around the navel to correct issues with the belly button. 

After the incision is made, liposuction may be used to remove any stubborn fat in the area. Next, your abdominal muscles will be tightened with the aid of internal sutures. Lastly, any excess and sagging skin will be surgically removed, and your incisions will be closed. 

Looking to Eliminate Man Breasts?

One of the most embarrassing and frustrating cosmetic issues that some men suffer from is gynecomastia, which is the presence of excess or enlarged breast tissue (male breasts). This issue is usually brought on by a hormonal imbalance. That is why gynecomastia is common in boys going through puberty. 

While many cases of gynecomastia correct themselves naturally, other men have “man boobs” that just don’t go away on their own. To correct this cosmetic issue, gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) needs to be performed. 

For male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Nukta will perform either liposuction or a mastectomy (where an incision is made and breast gland tissue is removed) to get rid of fat or breast tissue that is causing the issue. 

This is a relatively simple and straight-forward procedure that gives men dynamic changes to both their physical appearance and their confidence.

Excellent Non-surgical Treatments for Men

For men who struggle with other cosmetic issues, such as hair loss and wrinkles, sagging skin, and areas of volume loss on their faces, non-surgical procedures can be the best option to give dramatic results with little downtime.  

Looking for Fuller Hair?

Suffering from hair loss can be devastating to a man’s confidence and self-esteem. We tend to link our hair to our sense of self. So, instead of covering your balding head with a hat, why not cover it with hair? 

Dr. Nukta offers NeoGraft® to help men regain a fuller head of hair. 

NeoGraft® uses the FUE method (which stands for follicular unit extraction). Essentially, the NeoGraft® handheld device is used to remove healthy hair follicles from the back of the head (where hair tends to be the thickest and healthiest). These extracted follicles are then reimplanted in areas of hair loss. 

With this minimally invasive treatment, you can look forward to having the kind of hair that makes you want to throw your hat in the trash.

For men who are not interested in hair graft, PRP injections for hair restoration are also available. This treatment uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to reawaken and stimulate the hair follicles. PRP is a derivative of your blood (collected when the blood is spun in a centrifuge and separated) that contains high levels of growth factors. 

This is a non-surgical and non-invasive injectable treatment that is appropriate for men with thinning hair. This treatment is not appropriate for bald men or men with significant hair loss.

Looking to Reduce Facial Lines and Wrinkles?

Whether from age or lifestyle, many men struggle with skin issues on their face, including wrinkles, fine lines, and areas of volume loss. 

While you can undergo surgical procedures like facelift surgery or fat grafting to address lines and wrinkles and restore fullness, dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments offer similar results (for qualifying candidates) with no incisions and little to no downtime.

Over time, men can notice wrinkles and areas of volume loss in the face (usually on the cheeks and under the eyes). 

Whether you struggle with nasolabial folds, lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth or sunken skin that makes you look gaunt and older than you are, dermal fillers can help correct these issues. Dermal fillers work by increasing the amount of moisture in the treated area, which means that you are filling in these blemished areas through natural means. 

The most popular minimally invasive treatment for men in 2020 was botulinum toxin-A treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic. This treatment helps to correct wrinkles and lines in the face that are caused from constant contractions (like squinting). 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator, meaning that the active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic (botulinum toxin-A) relaxes the treatment area (affected muscles) and keeps the nerves from sending signals to the brain. This prevents the muscles from contracting and wrinkles from showing.

Are You Ready for a New You?

Whatever procedure you choose, whether it be surgical or non-surgical, you can trust Dr. Nukta and his team at NOVA Plastic Surgery and Dermatology to give you the appearance you’ve been looking for.
