One of the most commonly believed myths about plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures is that only women get them. The reality, however, is different. As per plastic surgery 2020 statistics, men accounted for 13% of the total cosmetic procedures performed.

2021 also saw a higher number of such procedures among men, and the number is expected to rise in coming years as well since more and more people are accepting the idea of men going under the knife or getting minimally/non-invasive cosmetic treatments for self-improvement.

Speaking of cosmetic procedures, some have remained the masses’ favorites over the years, while some new names have also entered the list. That being said, let’s take a look at some cosmetic procedures that remained popular among men in 2021:

1.  Rhinoplasty

Commonly known as nose job or nose reshaping treatment, rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, not only among men but women as well. It is an invasive procedure in which the doctor reshapes the nose.

Rhinoplasty is performed for both corrective and cosmetic procedures. For example, some people are born with deformities impacting their nose. A nose job can help correct this issue and assist them in improved breathing. Similarly, those who have a crooked or beaked nose can get rhinoplasty for an enhanced appearance.

Like other invasive cosmetic procedures, it is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the type of surgery performed and the condition of the patient. Generally, an incision is made at the base of the nose or between the nostrils to perform this surgery.

2.      Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is commonly known as eyelid surgery. It is increasingly becoming popular among men since it helps combat a prominent sign of aging. As men age, eyelids start to stretch, resulting in the weakening of the muscles supporting the eyelids. This leads to sagging eyebrows, droopy under lids, and eye bags. All these issues arise due to the accumulated fat under and above the eyelid.

In this procedure, the doctor removes excess skin, repositions and eliminates fat, and some parts of muscle for the purpose of eradicating fatty deposits around the eyelid. This procedure can also be performed for lightening dark circles beneath eyes or fixing drooping eyelids.

3.  Facelift

Next in the list of popular cosmetic procedures among men, facelift (medically known as rhytidectomy) is a surgery that is designed to reverse aging signs that impact the structure of the face and neck area. For example, when men reach the age of 50, they start to develop loose or sagging skin around the lower part of their neck and face. This issue cannot be resolved even if you are using the most expensive skincare products.

This is where facelift comes into the picture. It literally ‘lifts’ the face as the excessive skin that’s present around the lower face and neck area is removed while underlying soft tissues of the treated areas are restored. The outcome is a more youthful appearance.

This treatment is quite popular in Dubai. Many plastic surgery clinics offer this procedure. However, the results may depend on the expertise of the surgeon. So, if you want the best results of the facelift Dubai procedure, book your consultation at Aesthetics International.

4.  Facial Fillers AND Anti-aging Injections

The use of injectable fillers and anti-aging injections have become quite common these days. Earlier, only celebrities used to get these cosmetic procedures. Now, even common people are seen getting such treatments to flaunt a more youthful and more rested appearance.

With anti-aging injections, wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines and other such issues can be resolved immediately. The best part? There’s hardly any downtime. You can get it during your lunch break and head back to the office, resuming your routine activities.

The same goes for facial fillers. These are also non-surgical and help men flaunt a younger-looking, smooth appearance in no time.

5.  Liposuction

If we rank the top plastic and cosmetic procedures performed all over the world, liposuction is certainly going to occupy a prime spot. With Dubai becoming a global hub for plastic surgeries, you can now get this treatment easily in the city of gold as well.

With liposuction Dubai procedure, the fat is sucked out of the body, resulting in a toned figure, which almost every man wishes to achieve. The procedure involves inserting an instrument beneath the skin. It breaks up fat and then vacuums it out, leaving the patient with a stable body weight.

Many people have this misconception that liposuction is a weight loss treatment that can help treat obesity. This, however, is untrue. It can help to enhance the shape of your body, but it doesn’t treat obesity or related issues.

6.  Gynecomastia

Some men are born with larger breasts that become a cause of concern for them as they do not feel comfortable in their body. Several other causes result in the development of this condition, including hormone change, excessive body fat, overactive thyroid, etc.

Exercise and diet control cannot eliminate enlarged breast tissues. Thus, to treat this condition, doctors perform gynecomastia also known as male breast reduction surgery. During this procedure glands, local fat, or both of them are removed from the body. Furthermore, abnormal tissues are also treated during gynecomastia.

Final Thoughts

Times have changed, and body contouring and facial cosmetic procedures are not only limited to women. Men, too, now make efforts to look their best, and for this, they aren’t afraid to get such treatments. However, it’s important to get these procedures from a reputable clinic.
