In recent years, the operations of cosmetic surgery in men have grown around 20% per annum. The most common profile of man who wants to be operated is a man between 35-55 years old concerned about his physical appearance.
Each time, there are more men who resort to cosmetic surgery to correct a defect in their face or body for aesthetic reasons to enhance their appearance. Men also care about their appearance, due to cultural changes in the last years. This is because of a greater cult of the body, the exhibition in social networks and other environments, among other reasons.
Men also undergo an operation of cosmetic surgery for health reasons, such as respiratory problems when operated of rhinoplasty.
It is young men who feel a greater attraction for their physical change, mainly facial and then corporal. Middle-aged men are more concerned with rejuvenation treatments.
The most demanded treatments among men are:
- Rhinoplasty: it consists in reshaping the nose for aesthetic or medical reasons due to respiratory dysfunction. It is the most demanded type of cosmetic surgery among young men.
- Gynecomastia: many men demand the reduction of fat in the breasts, which is the second most-demanded type of cosmetic surgery in men. Middle-aged men or with weight problems are usually operated.
- Mentoplasty: it consists of a small correction in the chin by the introduction of a prosthesis or with body fat.
- Liposuction: It consists of eliminating the excess of fat in certain parts of the body such as the belly, hips or jowl.
- Abdominoplasty: It consists of a combination of liposuction to remove the fat and in turn, to remove the excess of skin in the abdominal region.
- Otoplasty: it consists in the correction of the ears mainly when they are larger than normal or are too far apart.
- Augmentation of pectorals and buttocks by means of silicone prosthesis. Both techniques can be performed by “lipofilling”, taking fat from the patient himself for a more natural result.
