Male Plastic Surgery Procedures Skyrocketed in 2012!

It looks like the smoothing and tightening effects of Botox are not just for women anymore. The same is true for the slimming effects of an Inland Empire liposuction by Dr. Ali Tehrani. Recent figures from a survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASPS) revealed that there were approximately 1 million cosmetic procedures performed in males for 2012, comprising 10 percent of the total surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures done last year.

Top 5 Male Cosmetic Procedures in 2012
The number of cosmetic procedures performed in men rose up to a 106 percent from the figures in 1997. The top 5 plastic surgery  procedures for males in 2012 were:

1. Liposuction
2. Rhinoplasty
3. Eyelid Surgery
4. Breast Reduction
5. Ear Reshaping Surgery

We are confident that these statistics continue to accurately report cosmetic procedure trends as performed by the physicians who are most likely to perform them,” said Dr. Leo McCafferty, MD, president of ASAPS.  “For the past 16 years, the interest in and demand for cosmetic plastic surgery has risen exponentially, a 250% increase in surgical and nonsurgical procedures, and our comprehensive statistics continue to show that.”

Common Male Body Problems

1. Man boobs, also known as gynecomastia, is quite common yet undetected amongst men. Diet and exercise are often futile with fatty male breasts and male breast reduction surgery is the only way to reduce its appearance. Liposuction is also recommended to reduce man boobs.

2. Beer belly is the enlargement of the lower gut which seem to be resistant to exercise and diet, too. While genetics could play a role in the development of beer bellies, a tummy tuck and a liposuction are often excellent alternatives in getting rid of the unsightly large gut.

3. Facial wrinkles and sagging eyelids are common among middle-aged men. A couple of Botox sessions, facelift or an eyelid surgery are recommended to treat sagging skin in the facial area.
