The pressure to look young and fit does not just affect women—it affects men too. We mentioned in our 5 Fast Facts About Cosmetic Surgery blog that roughly 8 percent of all cosmetic surgeries are performed on men. That is approximately 750,000 cosmetic procedures a year—although that does not seem significant, this statistic represents an 88 percent increase in plastic surgery for men since 1997, which is pretty astounding.
Regardless, procedures like rhinoplasties, cosmetic eyelid surgeries, male breast reductions; ear surgeries and/or hair transplants have been helping men achieve their desire to look younger and more balanced for years. The surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery want men (and women) of all ages to look and feel their best, and through certain plastic surgery techniques, Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa are confident they can do just that.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery options for men because it can quickly correct problem areas, like fat around the abdomen, hips and breast area, and produce optimal, long-lasting results. Fat in men is generally firmer and more vascular. Additionally, men retain skin elasticity longer than women do, which is why they are ideal candidates for liposuction procedures.
Nevertheless, removing parts of the body (fat) isn’t the only effective procedure men can undergo: embedding calf and pectoral implants is also pretty popular. Most plastic surgeons, like the Mosharrafa’s, have perfected their body contouring skills with implants and can enhance a patient’s natural physique.
Calf implants can be an effective way for accident or polio victims to restore their leg’s natural shape. Furthermore, pectoral implants can build the chest of a man suffering from Poland’s syndrome. Or, these types of implants can benefit men who have difficulty building muscle in those areas. It really doesn’t matter what the reasoning behind these surgeries are, if you’re looking to upgrade parts of your body, you have every right to do so!
Taking out fat and/or adding muscles can help boost confidence and self-esteem. Refining parts of the face with rhinoplasties or eyelid surgeries can do the same and are quite common for men. Regardless, there are many procedures the surgeons at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery can perform, so it’s best to schedule a consultation it you have questions.
If you’re unhappy with your appearance as a man, or woman, discuss what you’d like to change during your appointment. Dr. Ali and Dr. Tamir Mosharrafa are dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and a look you desire!
