What procedures are most popular with males?

Q: What procedures are most popular with males?

A: The choice of surgery usually depends on the age of the man. Younger men choose rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of their nose and often for breathing problems associated with previous trauma, such as a broken nose. Another popular procedure for the younger man is the operation to reduce gynaecomasia or “man boobs”.

As men enter their late 30s and early 40s they often elect to have eyelid surgery in Sydney, especially if they have bulging fat in the lower eyelids that gives them a sleepy or tired appearance. Liposuction is popular in the 35 to 45 age group when weight gain can lead to an unattractive “beer belly” and “love handles”.
