Plastic surgery has long been considered a feminine pursuit, and for the most part, it is. Still, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that about 15% of all cosmetic surgeries are now performed on men. What’s driving this change? Is there anything men need to keep in mind when choosing plastic surgery?

Napa Solano provides all its patients, male and female, with exceptional cosmetic surgery services in state-of-the-art surgical facilities. We believe everyone should look and feel their best!

Why is Cosmetic Surgery for Men Rising in Popularity?

Everyone wants to look in the mirror and like what they see. Beyond that, experts say there are several reasons more men are choosing plastic surgery.

  1. It’s become more common for men in the workplace to be discriminated against for their age.
  2. The stigma attached to male plastic surgery has lessened.
  3. Men are more targeted and affected by advertisers, influencers, and celebrities.

Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men

The five most popular male cosmetic surgical procedures in the US are nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), eyelid surgery, cheek implants, liposuction, and ear surgery. Gynecomastia reduction (breast reduction) and neck lift procedures are also on the rise. Men tend to gravitate to these procedures because they get immediate results without much downtime. They’re also getting more non-invasive procedures such as fillers, Botox, and microneedling.

Specialized Techniques

Whether the goal is to refine a face or body feature, most men seeking plastic surgery want to retain their masculine appearance without seeming “done.” That makes it critical to find a plastic surgeon with extensive experience working with male patients. The surgeons at Napa Solano Plastic Surgery are skilled at achieving the most natural-looking results that address their male patients’ concerns.

Celebrity Influence

While the positive societal shift in attitudes toward male self-care has played a significant role, there’s no denying that the rise of social media influencers and candor of Hollywood celebrities has also persuaded men to always look their best. This trend can be viewed as positive when you consider how it challenges traditional gender norms and promotes a more holistic view of masculinity.

What to Expect

Like all surgical procedures, male plastic surgery carries inherent risks like infection, anesthesia complications, and scarring. However, the likelihood of complications is minimized when the work is performed by a certified, experienced surgeon. As the recovery phase is crucial to a positive outcome, patients should carefully follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions, including attending follow-up visits.
