We are living in a totally different world right now, and times are truly changing. What would have been considered taboo some five years ago can be widely done now. There used to be a lot of limit as to who should do what and who should not. Over the past couple of years there has been a growth in the number of men taking plastic surgery; more men are coming out and are actually undergoing plastic surgery. It is of course a good thing that men do not have to hide anymore if they want some correction in their bodies through plastic surgery.
If you are a man out there and you were or are looking forward to having a plastic surgery procedure done, then this article is for you. We will take you through some of the plastic surgery procedures available for men, see what they entail, and what each of them can correct.
The first procedure we're focusing on is the rejuvenation of the eyelids. In the same way women usually start showing signs of aging around the eyes, so do men. Similarly, just like any woman who would like to correct that, so do many men out there. Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so they should be in good shape. If you want to know that you need this procedure you should look out for signs like: loose furrowed skin which are hanging, bulging fat pads underneath the eyelids, and lateral brows which hang over the top eyelids. Thanks to science and technology, this procedure to correct signs of aging is also available for men.
The other plastic surgery procedure available for men is the rhinoplasty. As we all know, proportionality means a lot aesthetically, and if you are not so happy with the shape of your nose and how it blends with your face then you will tend to have low self-esteem. If it seems as if your nose is big, chances are the lower face is a bit out of touch. Fortunately, rhinoplasty can help get a perfect shape even without having to feminize your face. This is usually a short procedure which is also easy to recover from.
Just as we have mentioned earlier, proportionality in your face is of paramount importance. If the projection of your lower jaw is somehow limited by insufficient growth, then it may appear as if you have a weak jaw and this can make you look less masculine. Using the right judgment, the plastic surgeon can give you an improved projection followed by an implant or re-positioning of your bone along with liposuction of the jawline. This is usually done to create a sculpted jaw that can embody strength.
Do you ever think that you have a short "turkey neck"? Are you having a hard time wearing clothes, like t-shirts? Or do you think you look heavier in your face, yet you have not gained any weight? If you've answered yes to any or all of these questions, then you have a short neck, and a neck lift would surely come in handy. For a man to have a short neck that looks like hanging skin with fat, this can certainly bring forth the image of a person who is prematurely aging beyond their actual years. However a simple process of a neck lift can restore you back as well as your self esteem.
Last on our list (but certainly not least) is what is known as gynecomastia surgery. If you see that you have more than enough fat and skin on the breast area, which in fact can affect the shape as well as the size of the niple-areolar complex, then it may give off a feminizing effect on your chest. This can cause a lot of stress to any man who has this. However, this kind of effect can be corrected through the gynecomastia surgery.
We are lucky to be alive at a time like this, when science has made our lives way easier. There are people who, even if they would have wanted to, would not have had the privilege of having a plastic surgery simply because science had not gone so far then. Therefore, instead of judging the men who choose to do plastic surgery, we should support them and appreciate the fact the we live in a time where a variety of procedures are easily available to many.

To the layman, the meaning and implications of the word surgery are clear, but not so when it comes to the terms plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery.

If you are going to talk about it, or probably consider undergoing it, it pays to know the difference between the two and use the words appropriately. Here goes.
