We all know that women don’t shy away from a little bit of nip and tuck every now and then. As a matter of fact, in 2014 almost 92% of all cosmetic procedures were performed on females, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But, there’s a new trend rising amongst men who are now more than ever turning to plastic surgery for many aesthetic treatments to perfect their appearance.

Still, despite this newly found fascination with cosmetic surgery, men feel more comfortable with non-invasive procedures that have minimal side effects.

So, we’ve made a list of minimally invasive but effective treatments for men which will mark 2018.

Get that perfect inverted triangle body shape

Most men struggle with that extra belly fat. Unattractive front belly and infamous love handles are common side effects of having a bit too much meat on your bones. Coolsculpting is a quick and efficient method of dealing with unwanted body fat and it’s becoming more popular by the minute. The process revolves around the fact that fat has a lower freezing point than water. Vacuum pressure is applied to the frozen fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by your body. This procedure is perfect for men who are in shape but need some extra help with their trouble areas.

Say goodbye to your man boobs

In some cases, due to reduced secretion of testosterone or increased secretion of estrogen, male breast tissue can become enhanced. This condition creates an impression of enlarged breasts and swollen nipples that can cause physical discomfort and negatively affect one’s self-esteem.

Male breast reduction surgery is a highly effective treatment that results in a contoured chest and altogether more proportionate appearance of the body. And besides being quick and effective, it is also permanent.

One manly chin coming right up…

Not everyone can win a genetic lottery. Those who don’t are often left with some kind of a physical flaw, for example, a lack of a strong masculine chin. Fortunately, there is a plastic surgery solution for this particular problem and it’s called mentoplasty (chin implant). This common type of cosmetic surgery is often combined with a rhinoplasty resulting in more proportionate aesthetic appearance. The procedure itself consists of making a small incision inside the mouth, placing the implant and sculpting the tissue. Complications from undergoing this type of surgery are rare and the recovery time is short. Many of the patients reported going back to work after only 5 days.

No more Mr.Proper jokes

Hair transplants became a thing ever since celebrities started talking about it publicly. And why shouldn’t they? Hair loss is a big issue for men and it’s known to affect their self-esteem. Almost 40% of males under the age of 35 struggle with baldness and while some learn to embrace it, others are looking for permanent ways to avoid it.

The most popular form of transplant is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It’s less invasive than previous treatments and it’s based on removing individual hairs from other parts of the body and implanting them on the scalp. What makes this procedure so popular is that it leaves no scars or stitches and it’s performed under local anesthetics.

Get rid of those Droopy dog eyes

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) the most popular plastic surgery procedure at the moment is blepharoplasty or eyelid rejuvenation. This type of surgery focuses on removing the bags from under the eyes resulting in much fresher and younger look. It’s also beneficial for patients who struggle with poor vision due to the fact that they have extra skin on their upper eyelids.

Yet, what makes this procedure so popular is the fact that it leaves almost no scars. The healing process is quick and the evidence is well hidden which is perfect since men don’t feel comfortable advertising they had any work done.

Whatever procedure you opt for, in the end, make sure it’s done by someone reliable. Don’t rush, take your time, do the research and check their credentials. Your body deserves only the best so make sure that’s exactly what it gets.

Stay away from bargain procedures and deals that sound too good to be true. Chances are you only get to do certain things once, so doing them right is what really matters.
