( - When it comes to plastic surgery, many men are quick to balk at the notion of undergoing a procedure. Why? There's a common misconception that plastic surgery treatments are only for women. In reality, however, a growing number of men are embracing the ability to take charge of their appearance and fight off the signs of aging with a little help from a sarasota cosmetic surgeon, and there's no reason more men can't start doing the same.

Cosmetic Consultations Just for Men

Many plastic surgeons are encouraging the trend to continue by offering a special area that's just for men. Many of the same quick and simple procedures offered to women can also be offered to men, like age spot elimination or injectable treatments. Other more involved and surgical procedures are also available, such as rhinoplasty and facelifts. Some procedures offered are even more common among men than women, such as chin augmentation. Banish the signs of aging, create the profile you've always wanted to have, and put your best face forward with the right cosmetic procedures for you.

The Most Popular Cosmetic Surgery for Men

It may not be all about brow lifts for men, but there are certainly some treatments more popular among men than others. Men can be just as worried as women about their appearance, just sometimes in different ways and about different areas. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), the most popular surgical and non-surgical procedures among male patients in 2012 were as follows:

Surgical Procedures:

  • Rhinoplasty, the ultimate way to change the look of your entire face. Sarasota rhinoplasty surgery is a big one no matter what sex you are, with men just as eager to reshape their profile as women. It's a very straightforward procedure, discussed at length beforehand to ensure you get the exact shape of nose you desire.
  • Hair Transplant. For men plagued by male pattern baldness, hair restoration surgery can restore a fuller, more youthful head of hair using the patient's own hair.
  • Blepharoplasty. Also known as an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty addresses sagging upper eyelids and puffy under-eye bags. The surgery can restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance to the eye area, making it an ideal procedure for today's busy man looking to stay competitive in the workplace.

Non-Surgical Procedures:

  • Botox. Botox injections offer a quick, non-invasive solution for erasing dynamic wrinkles like frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines. Treatment can be fit into a lunch break, allowing work and most other normal activities to be resumed right afterward.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane are ideal for treating skin creases, folds and scars, adding volume to the lips, and contouring the jawline and cheeks. Results typically last six months to a year or longer.
  • Microdermabrasion. This non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment gently buffs the skin, removing the damaged outer layers to reveal the smoother, younger-looking skin beneath. Light scarring, sun damage and discoloration, and stretch marks can all be improved.

Quick Nips & Tucks for Men

These popular procedures are just the start of the list when it comes to cosmetic procedures that men want. Give any man enough time to think about how he would improve his own appearance, and you're guaranteed to get a short list of changes he might make. These often include chin augmentation to add prominence to a receding chin, ear reshaping or pinning, hair transplants, rhinoplasty in Sarasota and much more.
