There has been a steady rise in men getting cosmetic surgery, with the most popular form of surgery found on Statista last year was Rhinoplasty with 267 procedures taking place.
Men have even started to look into getting more unique surgery, one in particular radical and expensive surgery to have in America is to help you grow taller.
This surgery includes having your legs “surgically lengthened” by having both of the femurs broken and titanium nails inserted into the leg to help them grow.
Men will spend anywhere between £60,000 – £130,000 to have the luxury of being a little bit taller.
According to Manchester Private Hospital, a company that provides both medical and aesthetic surgical facilities, found that currently 40% of their customers receiving cosmetic surgery were men.
Cosmetic surgery is a growing trend for both men and women, yet not many men are aware of the procedures that they can also undergo.
With this in mind Manchester Private Hospital has created a list of all the popular cosmetic surgeries that men get in the UK and what exactly each one means.
This is a popular procedure for men to get for their nose if they want to gain symmetry on their face that’s natural looking and that maintains their masculine facial features. Rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping procedure with two forms, open and closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty is a cut made in between your nostrils and closed is small cuts made inside your nostrils, both of these forms lead to the skin on your nose to shrink or expand to its new shape.
Also known as ‘mons pubis reduction’ which is designed to get rid of excess skin or fatty tissue in the mons pubis (which sits on the pubic bone), this procedure is mainly for those who have gained weight and have stubborn fat they need to get rid of. It involves the surgeon making an incision along the groin crease where a cannula is inserted and used to break down the fat cells from the mons pubis area. The fat is then removed using a vacuum machine. If you get this procedure then you’ll likely be back in the comfort of your own home on the same day!
For those who are focusing on the removal of excess skin and soft tissue, this is a procedure that doesn’t just focus on one specific body area but the full body. This is a procedure which many have that lifts the abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. You can even get it to reposition your belly button and the skin on the buttocks. Men who want to get more than one cosmetic procedure done at the same time, then this is the perfect one for you as all individual procedures are performed as one.
To maintain masculine facial features or to enhance them, then a chin implant tends to be the chosen procedure. This procedure includes the alteration of the chin to fit the patients face by reshaping the chin, common requests tend to be to define the jaw or ensure the shape of the chin is in proportion to the rest of the face. The implant tends to be made from silicone and is placed within the chin and altered to the desired shape of the patient.
As we get older, one part of the body that can be an insecurity to many is having eyelids that start to droop or sag. This procedure aims to remove the excess fat or skin above the eyes to help individuals to look more youthful. It is normally performed using a scalpel which can take place on the lower or upper lid to tighten the skin. Some men may choose this surgery as they get older to reduce the tired look.
A procedure popular for smoothing over those lines between your forehead and hairline from too much frowning! This works by the soft tissue and skin being repositioned to emphasise a smoother forehead and to lift the eyebrows which helps make the face look more youthful. This normally takes two hours to complete.
This procedure is only for men to get as it is the process of breast reduction for men, which means the removal of excess fat which has built up in the breast causing men to get ‘man boobs’ (the medical name is ‘Gynecomastia’). This can be caused due to a hormone imbalance, older age, obesity and medication. The surgery involves using liposuction to remove any fat cells or tissue from the breasts, which can take on average one and a half hours to complete. Within days, they can start to see the reduction in the size of their breasts.
