Cosmetic surgeries are usually associated with women but they are equally popular among men too. In fact, there are certain cosmetic procedures that are most commonly used by men than women such as Hair Transplant and Rhinoplasty. There is nothing weird in it because men can also be unhappy with certain parts of their body and can wish to alter their appearance.
With advancements in cosmetic surgery, men are now trying different procedures that are easy and produce effective results. Today, we will discuss some of the major cosmetic surgeries that are opted by men or are popular among men.

The five most popular cosmetic treatments for men are the following:
- Hair Transplant
- Male breast reduction
Now we will explain each cosmetic procedure in detail for your better understanding. Continue reading!
One of the most famous cosmetic surgeries among men is hair transplant. More men go through this procedure as compared to women. Balding is the most common issue that men have to deal with. There are various reasons for balding. It could be genetics or disturbance of hormones in the body. The majority of men above the age of 50 suffer from baldness or pattern baldness. The number of men undergoing hair transplants is increasing with each passing day.
In this procedure, the area with a higher density of hair like the back of the scalp is used as a donor site. Hair is extracted along with the follicles so that they could be transplanted into the desired location. The area where the hair is transplanted is known as the recipient site.
There are two types of hair transplant techniques such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). The basic principle of both of these procedures is the same. The difference lies in the extraction of hairs from the donor area.
Liposuction is a famous cosmetic procedure and is very helpful in body contouring as well as removing a small amount of fat from the body. Many people are suffering from obesity all over the world. The excess fat on the body is sucked using liposuction. The procedure can remove up to 15 pounds of fat from the body. It should be kept in mind that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but a body contouring treatment because it cannot remove excessive flappy skin left during the procedure. Liposuction can be used in combination with Tummy Tuck to reduce a large amount of fat from the body. A tummy tuck not only removes the fat but the skin as well.
In liposuction, a tube is inserted into the body through a small incision and heat or chemicals are passed through the targeted area which liquefies the fat. This liquefied fat is then removed using a suction device. This procedure corrects the contours of the body and makes it aesthetically more alluring. Men use this procedure to reduce fat from arms and abdomen, unlike women who use it on arms, abdomen, buttocks, and legs.
Rhinoplasty or Nose Job
The nose is the main facial feature of a person. A good nose gives a very good impression of a person while a crooked or bad nose gives a bad impression of a person. The shape of the nose can have a great effect on someone. The shape of a person’s nose ultimately decides the overall appearance of a person.
Rhinoplasty is a procedure in which the shape of the nose is corrected. In this procedure, cuts are made inside the nostrils of the patient. In some cases, cuts are made in the baseline of the nose too. The surgeon will then reshape the cartilage as well as the inner bone of the nose. The operation is either performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. The nose job is equally famous in men as it is in women.
With the passing age, eyelids lose elasticity and their skin begins to sag and drop. As a result, eyes begin to appear protruded and baggy. To correct this deformity Blepharoplasty procedure is done which reduces the fluffiness of eyes.
In this procedure, the reduction of eyelids is done by removing the excess skin from both upper and lower eyelids. Reduction of the upper eyelid is done first then lower eyelids are reduced by removing the excess skin, fat, and muscle. The wound is then closed. However, if the upper eyelids drop closer to the pupil then another procedure known as ptosis will be performed to provide additional support to the muscles of eyebrows. Blepharoplasty is beneficial for both men and women.
Male Breast Reduction
When a male develops huge breasts, it can be very embarrassing for him. People might think that it is a rare problem but surprisingly a large number of men suffer from this condition and go through breast reduction surgery to get rid of their overly sized chest. It affects the appearance of a person and can also cause psychological and emotional distress.
Breast reduction surgery is basically a liposuction procedure. The basic principle of this procedure is similar to liposuction and tummy tuck. Overly sized chests contain excess fat so liposuction is used to melt that fat and extract it. After that skin tuck is used to get rid of excess skin left during the procedure. As a result, the firmer and elastic body is achieved.
All these procedures are very popular among men which proves that cosmetic surgery does not benefit women only. Men equally deserve to look better and for that, they can undergo whatever procedure they want.
