Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2014
Today Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills commented on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s recent report on cosmetic procedures performed in the United States during 2013. More than one million men had plastic surgeries, and the number of men who have received plastic surgery has increased 237% since 1997.
“Men also become quite aware of the aging process,” Dr. Azizzadeh said. “Sagging skin and wrinkles may make any person self-conscious of his or her appearance, regardless of gender. Individuals will then explore ways to regain a youthful, refreshed appearance.”
Although an individual may be perfectly happy with a certain feature when he or she is young, physical attributes may evolve or appear different after adjacent features have aged. The five top plastic surgery procedures for men in 2013 were liposuction, eyelid surgery, nose surgery, male breast reduction, and ear surgery.
“Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries among men and women,” Dr. Azizzadeh explained. “Men typically seek out rhinoplasty surgery when they are unhappy with one or more aspects of their nose. It’s also a helpful option for those who have suffered facial trauma. Subtle changes to the nose with rhinoplasty can correct flaws and restore the appearance of the nose prior to the injury.”
Due to technological advancements, facial rejuvenation treatments can now produce natural results that do not show obvious signs of surgery. In addition to women, men now have the option of getting custom procedures, rather than “cookie-cutter” surgeries that make the face look unnatural and taut.
“Neck lifts and facelift surgery are not what they used to be,” Dr. Azizzadeh said. “We now have so much more information about how the face ages. Those factors are taken into consideration to create tailored looks that enhance a person’s facial aesthetic rather than alter it completely. Non-invasive procedures, such as injectable fillers and Ulthera skin tightening, are also alternative options for men who want to combat signs of aging without surgery.”
