Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures

Plastic surgery is not exclusively for women. In fact, a recent study on the most popular plastic surgery procedures shows that men received about ten percent of all plastic surgery procedures in 2016. With that said, here are the most popular plastic surgeries which men undertake for aesthetic enhancement today.


Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery among both men and women in the United States and around the world. In 2016, 45,000 men elected this body contouring procedure. This surgery is designed to eliminate stubborn fat pads from troubled areas which diet and exercise ignore. Men looking to complete their body shaping regimen for a lean and taut body find that liposuction is a helpful tool for achieving their goals.

Male Breast Reduction

Another procedure which has been trending among men is Gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction).  About a quarter of all men have some form of breast enlargement. Recently, more men have become comfortable with the idea of cosmetic surgery with over 30,000 men deciding to create a more chiseled chest appearance through this procedure in 2016.

Eyelid surgery

This popular surgery crosses gender lines because it offers both aesthetic and functional improvement. With eyelid surgery, men can improve the hooded overlap of the upper eyelid, remove the obstruction of their vision, or eliminate unsightly under-eye bags. Plastic surgeons report performing over 28,000 eyelid surgeries on men in 2016.


This injectable procedure is the most popular cosmetic procedure throughout the world. With over 450,000 men receiving Botox injections in 2016, this treatment is by far what men seek the most from aesthetic medicine. Although these injections are non-surgical, most surgeons offer the procedure because of their knowledge of facial anatomy and because they can create better results than non-medical injectors.


Because men have aging issues involving sagging skin and hollow cheeks, a facelift has become popular with many male patients. Here, men, as well as women, can take a decade off their facial appearance and look young and fresh. With advanced skills and techniques, men look to a facelift for improving self-esteem for motives which are both personal and professional.


This state-of-the-art body contouring treatment is taking the cosmetic world by storm. A non-invasive alternative to liposuction, CoolSculpting can freeze away unwanted fat leaving a firm and tight body. Target areas include abdomen, chest, thighs, and back. With CoolSculpting, the ever-elusive six-pack abs may be achievable when fat seems to hide a well-developed midsection.

It’s About Winning

Many male patients often feel a plastic surgery procedure can give them a competitive advantage in many aspects of life. By looking younger and stronger, men seem to be more confident in every endeavor they encounter.
