Are You Man Enough to Go Under the Knife?

A growing number of men in the country are now very much keen into going under the knife, says a recent report by the The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Over the last decade and a half, a whooping 121 percent increase in men seeking cosmetic surgery procedures have been reported. In 2011, the top plastic surgery procedures for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, male breast reduction and face lift.

By and large, men from metropolitan areas often seek cosmetic procedures to correct or improve their overall physical appearance. Dr. Larry Weinstein, one of the premier plastic surgeons for New York male cosmetic surgery, performs the aforementioned top 5 procedures for men last year.

Fats Off with Liposuction

Liposuction generally works by suctioning out deposits of fat which are accumulated beneath your skin. Dr. Weinstein deftly carries out this procedure with his smooth and controlled hand movements, what with years of playing the violin. Men who are worried about the fats that simply won’t go away on their arms, waistline and legs will greatly benefit from liposuction.

Rhinoplasty for the Real Men

Dr. Weinstein believes that the best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are not seeking perfection but improvement. In preparing for this surgery, you may be advised to avoid smoking and alcohol intake weeks before the date of operation. Rhinoplasty may be done either through local or general anaesthesia which will totally depend on the degree of surgery.

Drive the Puffiness Away with Blepharoplasty

Get rid of eye bags, the puffy regions around your eyes and drooping eyelids with Dr. Weinstien’s eyelid surgery procedures. Eyelid surgeries can be done in conjunction with other facial surgeries such as a brow lift or a face lift. The entire process usually takes around two to three hours, including pre-surgical preparations.

Good Riddance to Man Boobs!

Gynecomastia or man boobs is almost always the result of dramatic weight loss, intake of certain medications or influence of hormones. Non-smokers and those who are holistically healthy are ideal candidates for male breast reduction. Keep in mind that heavy lifting may be prohibited within 4-6 weeks post-procedure.

Take Years Off from Your Face, Brother

One of Dr. Weinstein’s important considerations when performing face lift amongst males is making sure that their baseline blood pressure is within normal limits. Due to genetic differences, blood pressure amongst men tend to be higher than that of women. Face lift falls under major surgeries wherein blood pressure levels are at high risk of for abnormal variations.
