As Americans become more concerned with their health and wellness, more people turn to plastic surgery to improve their appearance and overall well-being each year. In 2016 alone, Americans spent more than $16 billion on cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Increased interest in plastic surgery encourages the development of new, cutting-edge technology and innovative procedures, guaranteeing that plastic surgery is here to stay.
Much of the media attention lavished on plastic surgery focuses on procedures popular to women, but, contrary to popular belief, men can benefit just as much from plastic surgery as women. Many of our male patients are interested in the numerous benefits of plastic surgery, from increased confidence, to better relationships with loved ones, to boosted mental health. However, they are unsure what procedures are best for them. Through his years of experiences, Dr. Bounds discovered that men favor three procedures over all others: Liposuction, Blepharoplasty, and Botox.
Due to the amazing results it provides, liposuction remains one of the most popular procedures for both men and women. Even people who are near or at their goal weight and live healthy lifestyles have stubborn fat pockets that resist their efforts to achieve a slim figure. Liposuction targets removal of resistant fat in order to give patients the figure of their youth. Many of our male patients are shocked to look in the mirror and find a younger, healthier person staring back at them after just one simple procedure. No longer will you worry about taking your shirt off at the beach and revealing unwanted love handles or a sagging belly. You might find yourself spending as much time at the pool as possible!
2. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
Your eyes see and are seen, and aging eyes make a person look less vigorous and perceptive. Aesthetic eyelid surgery is performed on men of a variety of ages. Some men have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are the result of aging while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment sooner. Any one of the following conditions or a combination of them may indicate that you are a good candidate for the blepharoplasty procedure: excess or loose skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids, a puffy appearance to the upper or lower eyelids making the eyes look tired, excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids and/or a droopiness of the lids. The Blepharoplasty procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with downtime of a day or so. Why let your age define you when there’s a quick procedure to keep you looking active and strong? Perception is everything because what you see becomes your reality.
Unsurprisingly, Botox makes the top three most popular procedures for men. Unlike Liposuction and Blepharoplasty, Botox is a non-surgical procedure and needs very little downtime. Our male patients report a much younger and healthier appearance even after just one round of treatments.
