Male patients continued to head to Dr. Kevin Sadati’s Newport Beach practice in 2012, requesting cosmetic surgery procedures to help them look younger and feel better about themselves. As more Orange County men realize the value that plastic surgery can have in their own lives, they start to research the different procedures available to them. The following surgeries were the top 5 cosmetic procedures for men during the year 2012.
Top 5 Cosmetic Procedures for Men 2012
Liposuction — Liposuction has long been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for male patients. Liposuction is a surgery in which excess fat is removed from an unwanted area. When performed by a skilled professional, liposuction can be completed quickly and easily. Popular areas for liposuction include the stomach, thighs, arms, buttocks and neck.
Rhinoplasty — The rhinoplasty is an exceptionally popular male facial plastic surgery procedure. As a specialist in this particular surgery, Dr. Sadati sees a lot of male patients because not everyone recognizes the differences and challenges that are present. While women might be looking to have a nose job done in order to soften the appearance of their nose, most men want to improve their nasal appearance without giving up its strong, defined presence on the face. A rhinoplasty can improve a man’s facial profile, making him looking more attractive and more distinguished at the same time.
Blepharoplasty — Blepharoplasty, which is commonly known as eyelid surgery, is the cosmetic procedure in which excess fat is removed from the eyelid and the skin around the eyes is repositioned. At the end of this surgery, the male patient often looks younger and revitalized. It has a unique effect on the entire face, despite the fact that only a small area is operated on during the procedure. Many people find that they not only look younger, but they also appear to have more energy than they did before the surgery.
Gynecomastia — Gynecomastia is a plastic surgery that reduces the amount of breast tissue in the male patient. Excess breast tissue can have a negative impact on a male patient’s physical appearance as well as their self esteem.
Otoplasty — In 2012, otoplasty replaced the facelift procedure as the fifth most popular plastic surgery procedure for men. The otoplasty is an operation in which the patient’s ears are tucked back on their head or repositioned on the head. If ears stick out too far or are not proportioned, they can be a distraction from a person’s image. This surgery corrects that, allowing patients to be proud of their appearance once again.
According to ASAPS, men had more than 1 million cosmetic surgeries in the United States last year. This accounted for 10 percent of the total number of plastic surgery procedures that were performed. The numbers continue to increase each year. In fact, the number of male cosmetic surgeries performed each year is up by 106 percent since 1997. Dr. Sadati attributes this increase to more social understanding when it comes to cosmetic surgery, as well as improved techniques that provide more natural results. Dr. Sadati’s male patients love the fact that they can trust him to provide the best results without compromising their strong, definitive male features.
