What Men Want: The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

plastic surgery for men

Plastic surgery has become more popular with both women and men today, thanks to a bevy of options in procedures and techniques. Men, like women, are discovering that a simple procedure can help them turn back the clock and eliminate nagging imperfections that interfere with their self-confidence. At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, we perform a variety of procedures on our male patients to help them achieve their specific aesthetic goals.


Surgical facelifts are not just for women. Men are also finding that the ability to remove loose skin and reposition the underlying facial structures can go far in giving them the more youthful, vibrant appearance they need to stay competitive in their professional and personal lives. In addition to the aesthetic appearance, men find this procedure makes it more comfortable to wear dress shirts and ties. This procedure is typically done with the patient staying overnight for one night at the surgical facility, and most men are back to their regular schedules within a week or two.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid rejuvenation or blepharoplasty is another procedure frequently requested by male patients. This procedure removes skin and tissue from the upper eyelid to reverse hooding of the upper lid that leads to an aged, weary look and can even impede your line of vision. Also, the fact that causes “bags” of the lower lids can be either removed or repositioned erasing this tired look. Many patients are pleasantly surprised with the low level of pain and fast recovery after eyelid surgery, combined with dramatic rejuvenation results.

Eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and can be tailored to the specific needs and aesthetic goals of each patient. If loose, sagging skin is interfering with your vision, it may be possible that your insurance provider will cover at least a portion of this procedure. Eyelid surgery offers permanent results and can significantly turn back the clock on your appearance.


Imperfections or asymmetries of the nose can actually throw the entire face out of proportion. Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery is a popular option, for this reason, offering high levels of patient satisfaction in a single surgical procedure. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 31,000 nose surgeries were performed on men in 2015.

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure that can effectively make a number of cosmetic and functional changes to the nose. This procedure can change the size or shape of the nose and nostrils, correct asymmetries, remove bumps or concavities from the nasal profile or correct a deviated septum. Results of rhinoplasty are permanent, providing you with many years to enjoy your positive results.

Chin Augmentation

Proper facial proportions are not only influenced by the nose. A weak or receding chin can also set the entire facial profile off-kilter. The chin is a particularly important feature for men since a strong jawline also suggests strength and masculinity. For this reason, men made up more than 20 percent of all chin augmentation patients in 2015.

Chin augmentation can be performed a number of ways, but the most popular option is the placement of a synthetic implant through a tiny incision under the chin. Chin implants are permanently allowing patients to enjoy their new facial profile for a lifetime without ever needing a second surgery.

Men are finding plastic surgery is an effective way to keep up with their spouses and remain competitive in the workplace. At Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery, our goal is to make all of our male patients feel comfortable and well cared for, just like our female patients.
