Why More Men Are Opting for Lip Enhancement

Cosmetic procedures have made it possible for people everywhere to enhance their looks, achieving smoother skin, slimmer figures and fuller cheeks and lips. But for decades, many of these procedures have been considered the domain of women. Today, men increasingly are opting for these same procedures and enjoying the tailored benefits of a more aesthetic look and a confidence boost.

Among the fastest growing choices for men is lip augmentation. Since 2000, the total year-over-year number of lip enhancements performed has jumped 50 percent across the board, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But among men only, the figure has increased a whopping 404 percent in the same time period. In fact, last year alone, upward of 1,200 men in the US underwent lip enhancement surgery.

For those not sold on surgery, dermal fillers also are a top lip enhancement choice among men and women. Restylane, Radiesse and Juvederm all are popular and highly effective, minimally-invasive options.

While cosmetic procedures have been proven to help men and women achieve the kind of confidence and public perception that benefit them in their careers, relationships and social situations, industry experts also point to the rise of the selfie as a top driving force behind the increasing number of men opting for facial cosmetic procedures that enhance the skin, lips and eyes. As it turns out, men want to put their best faces forward just as much as women do. Male beauty bloggers and vloggers also are increasing in number and influence.

If you’re a male considering lip enhancement or another cosmetic procedure, call 904-396-1186 and schedule a consultation with Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery today.

Male Breast Reductions on the Rise

When beach season approaches, it’s not just women who begin anxiously working toward a slim, trim physique. Men also want to look their best, as evidenced by the continuous rise of males undergoing cosmetic surgery. Among the top options they’re choosing to get a beach-ready body is male breast reduction.

Statistics show that nearly half of the men in the US experience some degree of gynecomastia, enlarged mail breasts formed by excess fat and glandular tissue. It’s often caused by genetics, hormonal changes during puberty, massive weight loss, or use of certain medications or herbal products and can affect both teenagers and adult men. Fortunately, male breast reduction by an experienced cosmetic surgeon can restore a firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.

Ranking fourth among the top cosmetic surgeries chosen by men in 2015, male breast reductions numbered more than 30,460 – a 26 percent increase over 2014 and a whopping rise of 173 percent since 1997, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The procedure offers near immediate, long-lasting improvements with minimal scarring and most patients return to their daily routines in less than a week.

If gynecomastia has you self-conscious about baring your chest, now is the perfect time to make a change – before the summer season heats up. Call 904-396-1186 to schedule a consultation with Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery today.
