In 2017, the most recent year for which data has been collected by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 200,000 men opted for cosmetic surgical procedures and another one million chose less-invasive options like tattoo removal or microdermabrasion. Everyone deserves to feel confident in their own skin, and getting a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure can go a long way toward giving you that confidence. You see so much in the news and on social media about women's cosmetic procedures but little about those for men, so you may be wondering what kinds of procedures men commonly have done. We're here to answer that question with seven of the most popular men's cosmetic surgery procedures.

1. Eyelid lift

As early as your 30s and 40s, the eyelid can begin to sag, sometimes impacting vision. In addition, the skin under the eye begins to droop, and wrinkles become accentuated around the eye. Do people frequently ask you if you're tired or sick? You very likely have this condition, which makes you look older, less healthy, and more lethargic. Many men choose to do something about this leading sign of aging. Dr. Hensel can completely rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes, giving you a fresher, more youthful appearance. 

2. Rhinoplasty

Whether your nose became misshapen because of a bar fight in your teens or genetics didn't do you any favors, the nose is one of the first things that people see, and that's why so many men choose to undergo this very common procedure. A rhinoplasty is a great procedure for your next one-week vacation because it's one of the fastest and most impactful cosmetic procedures you can get. Most people return to work within a week.

3. Chin augmentation

The shape of your chin defines your face, and if having a weak chin impacts your confidence, it can overshadow everything in your life, from job prospects to raises to dealmaking to relationships. Many men opt to take control of this important facial feature through chin augmentation. Often Dr. Hensel does a rhinoplasty and chin augmentation together to transform your appearance so that you're proud and confident every time you look in the mirror and as you face life.

4. Neck lift

Weight gain and loss, as well as natural aging, can leave you with a flappy or sagging neck that makes you look larger than you are in the face even though you haven't gained any weight, and it can add a decade or more to your perceived age. Many men opt to do something about this unattractive excess skin to improve chin definition, realign their profile, and take years off of their appearance. 

5. Body sculpting

If you have significant fat to lose, you may have considered liposuction, but if you work out and still have pockets of irregular fat on your body, body sculpting is a solution that will help you get much more pleasing results. Dr. Hensel offers innovative and effective body contouring options like:

6. Surgery for Gynecomastia

Nothing can steal your confidence faster than "man boobs," but many men deal with them at some point in their life. Like so many men, you may have gained girth in your teens before you had a growth spurt, or your weight has gone up and down for much of your life. This leads to excess stubborn pockets of fat on the chest. It's no wonder that many men choose to reclaim their chests and their comfort with going shirtless with male breast reduction.

7. Botox

While the focus of this article has been on surgical and minimally invasive procedures, we will also include Botox because half a million men get this procedure every year to decrease the visibility of wrinkles and rejuvenate the face's appearance.

If you're not completely pleased when you look in the mirror but have been putting off cosmetic procedures, it's time to find out what getting one or more small yet effective procedures can do for your confidence. Contact the practice to request an appointment.
