The prejudice against cosmetic surgery for men has long been overridden. Thanks to the modern times we live in and our ability to keep an open mind, more and more men are seeking cosmetic procedures to get their desired body image without having to feel ashamed about it.
However, even with the increased acceptance of cosmetic surgery for men in our modern society, men tend to have different desires than women. If you browse through this website, you’ll find all of the top cosmetic procedures available for women and men of all demographics. While it’s common for women to seek the perfect look or erase all signs of aging, men usually seek to display their masculinity more. They usually achieve that by signing up for non-invasive procedures that entail no downtime and brief recovery requirements.
When it comes to men’s most favorite non-invasive procedures, here are the top choices:
1. Non-Invasive Body Contouring
Traditional fat loss procedures, while effective in removing body fat from troublesome areas, allowing for little control over the results. Today’s more advanced tools, though, give this control that men desire. Unlike traditional liposuction, which removed body fat without discrimination, EmSculpt is now men’s absolute favorite. EmSculpt technology allows for fat removal from troublesome areas for men, such as the hips, sides, and abdomens. The reason that it’s amazing is that, in addition to removing fat, it also increases muscular strength and definition. Getting a well-defined and strong six-pack has never been easier than it is with EmSculpt.
2. Laser Treatment
Laser treatment has gained a lot of popularity due to its efficiency, safety, and lack of invasiveness. Different kinds of lasers can be used for treating various conditions, but men usually seek laser treatment to remove tattoos. The most definitive way to completely remove tattoos still requires surgical intervention, but the most advanced laser technology comes second to best. This technology can be seen in Q-switched lasers for laser tattoo removal, Cynosure Picosure for persistent green ink, PiQo4 for darker skin colors, and Medlite 6 or Alex TriVantage for multiple-colored tattoos.
Men also use botox injections, albeit a little differently than women. Men typically want to decrease the signs of aging without completely removing them, and without resulting in a smooth and robotic look. Their botox sessions usually involve fewer injections, resulting only in shallower lines. Using this procedure, men can modify the appearance of crow’s feet, wrinkles and deep lines on the forehead, and frowns between the eyebrows. While temporary, the results can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, after which a secondary session can be useful.
4. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers have also grown in popularity among men. The most sought-after effect is to get more volume in the face, usually targeting the shallowing cheeks. But it can also be used to smoothen the lines of aging, fill up pits and improve their scarring, and add more volume to the lips. Dermal fillers today are made of hyaluronic acid: a substance that’s naturally absorbed by our bodies, making it relevantly very safe to use. Depending on the kind of dermal filler, the effects can last anywhere between 3 months and up to a year.
Aging can manifest itself through many symptoms, and one of the most troubling for men is drooping eyes. A blepharoplasty procedure can help in lifting the eyes, whether it’s just the upper eyelid or the lower eyelid as well. Traditional blepharoplasty procedures were surgeries that entailed the surgical opening of the eyelids and removing the excess fat and skin. Today, however, blepharoplasty can be done through a non-invasive procedure in which plasma is formed using a device that allows for sublimating the excess skin.
6. Hair Transplant
Perhaps one of the most pressing concerns for men is the loss of hair as they age. This can start as early as 20 years of age, which can greatly affect men’s self-esteem and confidence. While hair transplant used to be a demanding procedure that left a lot of scarring, technological advancement has given rise to follicular unit extraction. This allows for a non-invasive procedure with short recovery time and a lack of visible scarring.
With the stereotype around men’s cosmetic procedures gone, many men seek these procedures to build a better body image for themselves. Today, they actively seek body contouring for fat loss and muscle definition; laser treatment for tattoo removal; botox, dermal fillers, and blepharoplasty for facial rejuvenation; and hair regrowth or restoration treatments. All of these procedures have become popular owing to their safety, quick recovery, and lack of invasiveness.
