Social media trends and showbiz opened new avenues for men to speak up for their cosmetic needs and goals. Days had gone by when only females were concerned with their looks and beauty because the option to choose has broken the barrier, and social platforms like dating, marriage, and friendships give equal opportunities, regardless of age and sex, to choose freely. However, a new trend is flourishing that gives men the option to look appealing; as a result, increasing in plastic surgeries are in demand, and so, a rise in male clientele for cosmetic procedures has been recorded.

In the words of Dr. Karishma Kagodu (MS, MCh), recent data indicates an uptick in aesthetic procedures for men because young and middle-aged men are now more conscious about their body profile and facial appearance than before. However, the rise in demand for cosmetic surgeries is wider than just metro cities and soon paved the way to tier-two cities, including Pune, Kochi, Warangal, and Chennai. We have patients from all corners of the country seeking transformative procedures to feel confident from inside and out, resulting in a paradigm shift in recent years, and today’s men seeking cosmetic surgeries/ procedures to improve their persona, look, and overall confidence to accept the challenges of the competitive world.

Addressing The Increasing Trend of Men Seeking Aesthetic Treatments

A desire to look handsome comes very after because the appeal can be indicated by a good hairline, younger-looking skin, and sculpted chest, abdomen, and overall body profile. Thus, the most requested procedures to increase the confidence in men and improve their body profile are liposuction/ fat removal procedures, VASER high-definition 6-pack abs, hair transplants, jawline sculpting, chin sculpting, and facial rejuvenation procedures like Botox, fillers, and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for both hair growth and skin rejuvenation. The most sought-after aesthetic procedures, like liposuction, gynecomastia, tummy tuck, and hair transplant surgeries, are always on-demand for male clientele.

Note: Male interest in plastic surgeries will continue to increase with time because of celebrity endorsement for specific procedures, such as VASER high-def liposuction for washboard-abs, youthful skin appearance, and sculpted jawline that help make you look presentable in front of the camera, and procedures are chosen in a way to make a photo-friendly persona.

According to the Aesthetic Society statistics report of 2021, there has been an increasing surge in plastic surgeries in men, approximately 55% from 1997 to 2018.

What Are the Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures, And Why Are They On-Demand?

The most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in men are male breast reduction surgery and facial rejuvenation, such as Botox, PRP, and jawline filler.

1.    Male breast reduction surgery/ Gynecomastia:

As the boys grow older and go through adolescence, they become aware and curious about the changes they receive, such as beard, mustache, voice change, and sometimes male breast development due to an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone ratios. According to a report, 40-50 percent of the male population worldwide is facing male breast enlargement concerns seeking gynecomastia surgery. Gynecomastia surgery is performed to eliminate the male breast tissues and fat tissues/ gland tissues excess from the breast and helps correct enlarged male breasts. Suction-assisted liposuction is performed through a thin metal cannula to remove mild to moderate excess fatty tissue versus glandular tissue without excess skin laxity. Moreover, direct excision of excess breast tissue and skin can also be performed for moderate to severe gynecomastia, where excision of excess skin and repositioning of the nipple-areolar complex is required. Sometimes, liposuction and excision techniques can be combined to meet the desired goals. Male breast reduction surgery helps improve chest contour and self-confidence in men and has become the most popular cosmetic procedure worldwide.

2.    Facial rejuvenation:

Today, men are more concerned about their looks and appearance, and like, physical fitness, skin rejuvenation regimens have been included in their self-care practice. However, non-medical treatments like photo facials, Co2 laser, Morpheus 8, Botox, fillers (jawline fillers), and PRP become popular among men, and they are availing the benefits of the same. Thus, from deep cleansing facials to exfoliation, men seek non-invasive cosmetic procedures to combat aging, environmental stressors, and other pollutants to embrace a healthy glow. Having clear skin, a healthy glow, and reduced pore size is not just limited to feminine concerns; men are also becoming aware of addressing these facial flaws.

     I.          Co2 Laser: Co2 laser is designed for both men and women to specifically address the wrinkles of the brow and face, minimize crow’s feet dark undereye circles, and help shrink the ruddy skin around the eyes and nose.

  II.          Morpheus8 treatments: It works great on both men and women to rejuvenate the skin profile, help improve collagen production, and reduce the appearance of acne scars. However, specific instructions (such as shaving the beard) must be followed when Morpheus is administered on the beard areas, as it can affect hair growth. Thus, Morpheus8 treatment for men is often used to sculpt and tone the jawline. Moreover, morpheus8 is most often used to smooth away wrinkles and tighten skin, and it can also be used on other body parts to achieve a toned, sculpted tighter, and leaner appearance.

III.          Jawline filler: Having a chiseled face is very popular among male clientele because of the impact of cinema and social media. However, men are concerned about getting a photo-friendly/ photogenic facial profile, resulting in more demand for jawline fillers. Nowadays, jawline fillers are the second most sought-after cosmetic procedure after Botox. Male celebrities have been receiving jawline and cheek filler to sculpt their facial profile under camera-friendly. Thus, demand is rising in the day-to-day cosmetic treatment world concerning aesthetic treatments for men and enhancing confidence for the male population through cosmetic procedures.
