It might surprise you to hear that men are becoming one of the fastest-growing demographics in plastic surgery statistics, and it’s not just in surgical procedures. Non-invasive treatments can be highly versatile and correct a large number of different problem areas. Here are some of the most common ones that are growing in popularity with men interested in looking their best.
Most people have probably heard of Botox®, and that’s because it’s highly effective at moderating muscle movement that causes wrinkle formation in the face over time. Aging can be one of the main causes of discomfort with facial appearance, and more men are beginning to realize the confidence-boosting benefits of looking a few years younger. Dermal fillers can also be a great way to temporarily restore volume to the face and hands (and are even being more commonly used as a non-surgical alternative for penile enhancement) as well as fill in wrinkles. Injectables can be a quick and easy way to enhance the masculine contour of the face without surgery.
Lasers can do a lot when it comes to body procedures. It’s not too much to imagine, then, that men can easily have their needs met with a few popular laser treatments. Laser hair removal can be greatly beneficial to men, who generally have more body hair than women and can be uncomfortable when it manifests in certain areas, like the back, shoulders, or chest. Similarly, miraDry® is a quick and easy laser treatment for excessive sweating, a problem many men live with while feeling like there are no solutions. Treatments like CoolSculpting® and SculpSure® can help men with their weight-loss goals and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat (in some cases it can be an effective gynecomastia treatment). There are also many laser options for skin treatments that can help fix conditions like pigmentation, acne scarring, and sun damage.
Men interested in correcting their problem areas have many options available, and it’s important to find a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in helping men achieve their excellent results using their skills and understanding of men’s anatomy and aesthetic needs.
