The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) has been all the buzz with both patients and doctors alike these days. For the 18th year in a row, ASAPS has provided statistical data on how many plastic surgery procedures have been done on men and women.

The numbers may surprise you, but an even bigger shock is that Americans spent more than 12 billion dollars on cosmetic procedures for two years in a row (2013 & 2014)!

Men are increasingly accepting plastic surgery as a viable option to increase self-confidence in their appearance. Men across the board are choosing face and body procedures and loving their results!

Here are the top 5 surgical procedures we’re seeing in our New York offices:

  1. Male Breast Reduction
  2. Liposuction
  3. Rhinoplasty
  4. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
  5. Facelift

Procedures such as the “daddy do-over” and “Bro-tox” are becoming quite popular ways to improve both major and minor aesthetic issues that men face.

In our Long Island & NYC plastic surgery practices, younger men (ages 18 to 26) often choose male breast reduction surgery for gynecomastia correction. This procedure reduces enlarged breasts by using laser liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue while manual excision removes extra breast gland tissue.

Two extremely popular body procedures for men include laser liposuction for reshaping areas like the torso, “love handles”, and tummy while a mini or full tummy tuck flattens the stomach by removing excess skin & tightening abdominal muscles.

Men in the 27-40 age range often opt for minor fixes like Botulinum Toxin and fillers for facial issues while rhinoplasty is popular at every age, but more often performed before the age of 40.

By the age of 45 or so, we see more men for blepharoplasty (upper and/or lower eyelid surgery) to correct sagging eyes due to age. Facelift has also grown significantly in popularity over the last five years.
