Although there are many different cosmetic procedures that are designed to enhance the female form, women are not the only individuals who seek out cosmetic improvements to the face and body. Quite commonly, men also schedule consultations with plastic surgeons to explore their options for improving their facial and body contours.

5 Commonly Requested Men’s Plastic Surgery Procedures
More commonly referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures for men. There are many reasons why one might choose to undergo this procedure. Some men may not like the nose that they were born with; they may feel that it is too long, thin, bulbous, or otherwise imperfect. Others may have difficulty breathing because of a deviated septum or a prior injury. No matter why a man is unhappy with his nose, rhinoplasty can resolve several aesthetic and medical concerns. Following a nose job, patients may be more happy with their profile and enjoy the benefits of a corrected nasal structure.
Just as many women choose to have a “mommy makeover” procedure after they have children, many men may opt to have liposuction to reduce the appearance of love handles and other features that define the stereotypical “dad body.” Of course, plastic surgery is no substitution for a well-balanced diet and exercise, and it is not a weight loss technique. However, where these traditional means of body contouring fail, liposuction can help. This type of plastic surgery for men can help shape abdominal and flank tissue to provide men with a more contoured, youthful looking frame.
As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity. This can cause the skin to sag in areas that it didn’t previously, and the sensitive skin around a man’s eyes are no exception. If you have an upper lateral brow that is drooping over your upper eyelids, this can give the appearance that you are angry. It can also obstruct your vision if the condition progresses. Likewise, excess fat and loose skin underneath your eyes can leave you looking more fatigued and older than you are. Blepharoplasty, or eyebrow surgery, can provide an excellent solution to both of these conditions, allowing a man to reclaim his youthful appearance.
Male Breast Reduction
You have probably heard a lot about surgical procedures for women that are designed to lift, enhance, reduce, or otherwise augment a woman’s breast tissue, but many times, men are also unhappy with the appearance of their chests. Gynecomastia is a condition in which a man has excessive tissue in one or both of his breasts, resulting in a somewhat-feminine chest contour. Men with gynecomastia may feel embarrassed in social and romantic situations, and they may suffer from low self-esteem. A male breast reduction can correct the chest contours so that they are more masculine in appearance, restoring self-confidence in the patient.
Men and women alike may be unhappy with the appearance of their ears. For women with longer hair, this may not be such a bothersome issue as it is for a man who has ears cannot be covered by hair. Fortunately, there is a solution for men who don’t like the size and shape of their ears, and those who have ears that have been disfigured by an injury or accident. Otoplasty, more commonly known as ear surgery, can help create a more natural shape and contour for a man’s ears. This not only provides balance and proportion for the man’s face, but it can be a big confidence booster, as well.
