November is International Men’s Day! Most people associate plastic surgery with women. However, many men now turn to plastic surgery to improve their appearance. The global male plastic surgery market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 6.6% from 2019 to 2025.
Male plastic surgery procedures vary depending on the country. In South Korea, for example, the most popular procedure is blepharoplasty, which is a type of eyelid surgery. Meanwhile, the most popular procedure in the United States is rhinoplasty, which is a nose job.
We examine in detail the top 2 male plastic surgery procedures worldwide.
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a very popular procedure for men. It can help to improve the appearance of the nose, as well as to improve breathing. Rhinoplasty can be divided into two types: open and closed.
Open rhinoplasty involves an incision in the columella, the strip of tissue separating the nostrils. As a result, the surgeon can better understand the nasal anatomy and make precise changes. Closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions inside the nostrils. This technique is less invasive, but it can be more challenging for the surgeon to achieve the desired results.
Rhinoplasty can correct many issues, such as a crooked nose, a bump on the nose, or a deviated septum. It can also help to change the size or shape of the nose. In some cases, rhinoplasty can coincide with septoplasty, a procedure to correct a deviated septum.
Liposuction is a popular procedure for men struggling to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. You can use it to target areas such as the abdomen, love handles, chest, and thighs.
There are two main types of liposuction: suction-assisted liposuction (SAL) and tumescent liposuction. SAL uses a large syringe to remove excess fat. Tumescent liposuction involves injecting a solution into the areas that need treatment before removing the fat. This solution helps to reduce bleeding and swelling.
Liposuction is a relatively safe and simple procedure with minimal downtime. Liposuction should not be considered a weight loss procedure. The procedure is best suited for people who are already at a healthy weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that they can’t seem to lose.
