The recent trends in Male Plastic Surgery procedures showed that the notion that plastic surgery is just for women is outdated. The number of male plastic surgery procedures, has significantly increased since 2000.
In fact, a report by American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery suggests that, in 2014, some male plastic surgery procedures, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, have increased by more than 90 percent.
Finally, it has become obvious that men too have the right to improve their self-image, retain a youthful appearance and feel better about their look. Luckily, today’s surgeons are more than proficient and they can provide the desired results even with non-invasive methods. Here are five most popular non-surgical procedures for men.
Botox for Men
The number of minimally invasive male plastic surgery procedures which require injecting of Botulinum Toxin has grown more than 80 percent in 2014. It has become so often that there is even a new catchy name for it – Brotox. Men opted for this procedure because it helps them get rid of the annoying crow’s feet or frown lines. The Botox injections are temporarily blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle in order to diminish wrinkles. They were popular among women for long time and among celebrity men, but now ordinary men realize their incredible benefits: effective, safe and little to no recovery time.
Microdermabrasion for Men
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive way to rejuvenate and refresh the appearance of your skin. In 2013, almost 200,000 men chose it for those purposes. The treatment is delivered with a small device which is sending tiny crystals on the surface layer of the skin to strip away dead skin cells, and revealing healthy skin. The lack of needles, knives or any kinds of sharp objects, makes this procedure painless and thus more appealing. The treated areas are visibly improved in color, tone and texture of the skin.
Surgical rhinoplasty is the most popular male plastic surgery procedure for men. Many men decide to undergo having a nose job because they are not satisfied with how their noses look, but some of them are choosing it because they expect those improvements to bring them new opportunities at work.
Rhinoplasty can solve problems, such as difficulties breathing and discontent with nose size and shape. A non-invasive alternative is non surgical nose job procedure, which is perfectly capable to fix asymmetries, bulges or bumps on the nose. It is painless, requires minimum recovery time and it is rather efficient.
As we have mentioned, requests for hyaluronic acid treatments for men have grown for more than 90%. It is no wonder, because these dermal fillers are providing the skin with smoother appearance and youthful look.
Because they are restoring volume into the areas of the skin where it is lacking, these fillers are ideal for aging male population over age 50 with sagging facial skin, who are struggling to keep even a small part of their youth alive. The most popular filler used to turn back the time is juvederm, which adds volume to the cheeks or the middle of the face.
Chemical Peels for Men
Similarly to microdermabrasia, chemical peels are working on the surface layer of the skin to get rid of the dead skin cells, improve complexion, remove acne scars and treat hyperpigmentation. In 2013 almost 100, 000 men between the ages of 35 and 50, chose to use chemical peels. The chemical peels are peeling away years of dead skin straight from your face.
They can be strong or mild, and depending on that they require minimal or slightly longer recovery time. This non-surgical skin treatment can repair some visible flaws on the older male facial skin. Still, they cannot repair irreversible damage caused by the Sun, poor lifestyle choices and pollution.
In the end, there is nothing more left to say, than to give applause to the male population who has cleverly used the trends of non-invasive non-surgical procedures for men, and found their own favorite procedures which will help them look years younger, advance in their careers or simply make them feel better.
