Yes! As surprising as this might sound, know that plastic surgeries for men exist! I know you don’t believe me yet, so let’s name them as they are:
Up to 50% of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss by the time they reach 50 and in most cases it’s due to Androgenetic Alopeci, a hereditary condition. Some men accept hair loss as it is (i.e. Prince William) and some just go for the permanently bald look (Bruce Willis).
However, a significant percentage of men affected by hair loss try to treat it with the best known cure for it – a hair transplant. However, only men that have sufficient hair in the donor area will be eligible for this type of surgery.
Gynecomastia is a condition that has even a stronger emotional toll on men than hair loss. This condition, also known as “man boobs”, refers to the over-development of enlarged breast in men. Often it only has an aesthetic effect, but in there have been some connections with breast cancer in men.
Men undergo a corrective plastic surgery called gynecomastia surgery. The surgeon uses several methods, including ultrasonic liposuction and removal of the excess glandular tissue, to contour the chest to it’s natural shape.
As surprising as it might sound, men get botox too. Male celebrities are known to undergo the procedure, but when looking at statistics from, it’s clear that the procedure is common practise beyond the rich and famous. According to ASPS, at least 410,000 men had botox in 2014!
If Botox surprised you, I know you wouldn’t have guessed that liposuction is one of the common plastic surgeries for men, especially in US. Men often use it to remove fat from their abdomen, chest and love handles. This procedure is also popular amongst male fitness models.
