Male Plastic Surgery: The Most Demanded Operations

Men are turning more and more to plastic surgery. The figures indicate that of all the interventions of this type that are carried out in Spain, between 10 and 20% are carried out in male bodies. Something that years ago was unthinkable. Today we can talk about typically masculine interventions.

For example, among the operations most demanded by man are the hair implant and rhinoplasty, since baldness and morphological alteration of the nose are two of the conditions that cause the most psychological disorders, especially the first, who is not afraid to stay bald.

Otoplasty: An operation that consists of correcting the ears of the shoulder, something that usually causes a certain psychological condition to the sufferer. This is considered a very simple operation that is carried out by local anesthesia and sedation. It usually lasts about two hours.

Blepharoplasty: This is one of the symptoms of male facial aging, the fall of the upper eyelid and the appearance of bags. This intervention acts against both. The operation is equally simple by local anesthesia and sedation, the upper eyelid is trimmed, the scar is camouflaged with the fold of the eye. The bags are corrected from the inside, so there is no signal left. It lasts between one and two hours

Rhinoplasty: Intervention that corrects the morphological alteration of the nose, is one of the aesthetic causes that major psychological disorders cause to Spanish men. Hence, it is the most requested operations. It can be done with general anesthesia or with local sedation, the most common is to begin to intervene from inside the nose, so it leaves no visible scar and usually lasts between 45 minutes and an hour.

Liposuction of the abdomen: it is done to eliminate excess fat accumulated in the abdominal area, usually caused by a genetic problem called lipodystrophy. It is more frequent after 40 years. For this type of intervention, general or local anesthesia with sedation may be used. It is carried out by means of two incisions of about four millimeters on each side of the trunk, through which a cannula is inserted that will suck the excess of fat previously localized. It lasts approximately between one and three hours.
