In the past it was almost unheard of for men to undergo surgery in an attempt to enhance their looks. Female patients dominated the market with a 9-out-of-10 ratio, but these days the numbers demonstrate that at least 4 in 10 patients are now male. Whether it’s down to the cheaper costs of cosmetic surgery, or if it has more to do with the wider variety of procedures now available to men no one can say; but the fact remains that more and more men are considering going under the knife.
There are even a few particular types of plastic surgery that have been specifically developed for men. Although some are a little more intrusive than others, they are still just as viable and can even be very affordable, too. What are these male-orientated surgeries exactly? Here’s a closer look at some of the most popular.
This unique type of surgery was first brought into the spotlight by Australian paparazzo Darryn Lyons after a brief stint on a reality show. The procedure itself can be undertaken in the space of a few hours and can create the appearance of abdominal muscles, without any need for exercise.
If a chemical imbalance occurs within the male body (typically testosterone related), it can result in the growth and enlargement of breast tissue. This can sometimes appear as breasts, not unlike the mammary glands that grow naturally in women. This type of surgery is ideal for removing excess fatty tissue, whilst blocking further production of this hormone to put a halt on any further growth.
It’s believed that 8 in 10 men are unhappy with the size or shape of their genitals and this is one of the main reasons why so many are opting for penis enlargement surgery. The procedure is intrusive and local anaesthetic will be applied (or general if the patient requires). It can be undertaken in roughly 4 to 6 hours and a surgeon will work to enhance the size of the penis by injecting fluids and attaching an organic tissue to lengthen, or thicken the genitalia.
