Now more than ever, men are turning to cosmetic procedures to smooth, tuck, and plump! In fact, the number of men who have undergone minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has gone up 67% from 2000-2014, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Here, we will discuss the most popular procedures men are turning to.
Botox and Dysport
Botox and Dysport are made from a neurotoxin produced by botulinum toxin. This toxin is used cosmetically to remove wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Botox and Dysport work by stopping the chemical message that nerves send to contract muscles, resulting in smooth, wrinkle free skin. Most men choose to have these injected between the eyes, in horizontal brow lines, and in crow’s feet to give them a more youthful appearance.
Gynecomastia is when a male has excessive tissue in one or both breasts. This issue often causes men to feel self-conscious about their bodies. A male breast reduction surgery removes excess breast tissue and sculpts the remaining tissues to create a masculine look. However, if you are overweight it is suggested to try to correct the problem with weight loss, since most men who undergo this surgery are at or near their ideal weight. This procedure is available to men age 18 and up.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical option to diminish stubborn fat deposits. This procedure uses targeted cooling to kill fat cells under the skin, literally freezing them away! Each treatment lasts about an hour, and there is no downtime required. Patients can expect to see results after a few months.
Kybella is a manmade form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that your body naturally produces to help absorb fats. Kybella is used to decrease the appearance of double-chin, destroying fat cells at the injection site. Since Kybella treatments are much easier than undergoing liposuction for under the chin, more and more men are choosing to undergo treatments.
