For Men

While it may seem like the majority of plastic surgery patients are women, over the past few years, men have played a large role in fueling the surge in cosmetic surgery. Regardless of your gender, we live in a society that places a high value on looking young and fit. As the stigma of undergoing plastic surgery has largely faded, more and more men are investing in keeping up appearances.

There are several reasons for the recent upsurge in male plastic surgery in Houston and Webster, Texas, and across the nation. A struggling economy has forced many middle-aged men into unemployment, and they are now competing for job opportunities against recent graduates and an increasingly youthful workforce. Men today want to look young, vibrant and energetic in order to remain viable in today’s competitive workforce. Others are seeking male plastic surgery for more personal and social reasons. Those who are divorced and dating again want to project an image of youthful vitality and vigor to attract a new mate.

Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Men who seek plastic surgery typically request procedures that offer a more subtle improvement of their appearance, rather than a more dramatic transformation. They want to look more “rested,” not necessarily “different.” This usually entails smoothing out furrows and creased brows or deflating puffiness around the eyes that can make a man look haggard or surly.

A popular procedure often requested by men is eyelid surgery. This simple procedure can take years off a man’s facial appearance by removing lax upper eyelid skin or removing excess fat and tightening the lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery has a fairly short recovery period and gives the patient a more youthful, bright-eyed look.

Men also frequently request non-invasive treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, and Restylane® injections. These simple procedures are great for softening forehead and “crow’s feet” lines, which can often make a man look angry or stressed.

One of the top 5 requested male plastic surgery procedures is male breast reduction, clinically known as gynecomastia surgery. We specialize in male breast reduction and see numerous male patients each year who are seeking to get rid of “man boobs.” Procedures like liposuction and rhinoplasty are also highly sought after by men.
