When we think “plastic surgery”, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Plastic surgery is most common among middle-aged women, who look to plastic surgery procedures for face lifts and rejuvenation techniques and even liposuction procedures. Surprisingly, however, plastic surgery procedures have grown more popular among men over the last several years.
Studies recently conducted and released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicate that more men are undergoing plastic surgery procedures today than ever before. Face lifts for men rose 14 percent and male liposuction increased 7 percent in 2010 alone. Also, 2010 ASPS statistics show that men underwent more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures, both levels of complexity including minor and major surgical procedures.
So how can plastic surgery help men? The top minor surgical procedures that men are taking advantage of include nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reduction (for men), and hair transplantation. In fact, the common surgical procedures visible among men are relatively cosmetic. Men who might feel embarrassed or self-conscious for considering plastic surgery procedures should remember that they are not alone. Many more men today, and even over the last several years, have undergone some form of plastic surgery.
Male Breast Reduction
Male breast reduction is one of the most popular plastic surgical procedures for men offered by Palm Beach plastic surgery facilities. Men who are often overweight or obese tend to store fat in the breast area. This leaves many men feeling self-conscious, just as women feel with muffin tops or bra fat. The male breast reduction procedure rids the excess fat and tissue in the breasts leaving the breast and chest looking smoother and lean. One of the most attractive benefits to male breast reduction procedures is that this procedure is minimally invasive, meaning a laser is used to invade the breast and local anesthesia is used.
In addition, patients undergoing male breast reduction procedures can expect a quick recovery, and only expect to be in surgery for approximately a day, if there are no health complications. Patients can then return to the office for a quick follow up examination to monitor the healing process within twenty-four to forty-eight hours after the completion of the procedure. Any post-operative care needed at that time will be discussed between the patient and physician.
