The Top 5 Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Mar 1, 2017

Cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery isn’t just for women. While it is still more common for women to undergo such procedures, they are growing in popularity among image conscious men, while the stigma related to undergoing a treatment as a man is also slowly reducing.

Here’s a look at the top five plastic surgery procedures that men across Australia are looking for.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

While there are plenty of men out there who dream of having a six-pack, bigger biceps, and a generally more well defined body, many of them accept that without committing themselves to the gym in the long run and sticking to a strict eating regime that it might be unrealistic to 100% achieve what we want to, especially as our lives are getting busier all the time.

Along with this, many men then choose to focus on making their appearance what they would deem to be acceptable. For increasing numbers of men in Australia, this means waving goodbye to “man boobs,” hopefully forever.

There are numerous options out there for men who are interested in undergoing breast reduction surgery, though liposuction followed by the removal of excess skin is the most popular. While there’s a short recovery time of a few weeks before you can start heavy lifting again – whether you do this for work or are a regular at the gym – if you’re looking for body confidence this might be top of your cosmetic surgery wish list.


More commonly known as nose jobs, rhinoplasty procedures are growing in popularity among men of all ages. For many men, their nose is like their ears, in that they continue to grow throughout their lives. This leads to a lot of older men exploring rhinoplasty options as they age.

Among younger men, choosing surgery to reshape or resize the nose is also common, while choosing rhinoplasty following a facial injury gained at work or playing sports is also on the increase.

Eyelid Lifts

Medically termed blepharoplasty, eyelid lifts are common among men who are keen to reduce signs of ageing. As well as taking away the youthful appearance of your face, there is also a medical consideration here, as if your eyelids have started to sag they can affect your vision, despite there being nothing actually wrong with your eyes themselves.

There is also the option of undergoing a lower blepharoplasty as an alternative treatment or alongside the eyelid lift. The lower blepharoplasty looks to remove eye bags from beneath the eyes and can instantly make you look younger and more energetic.


Whether you’re a man who is tired of feeling like you’re in your late 20’s but looking like you’re in your 50’s, or you have felt your confidence sap as you have aged, a facelift could be an option for you, and is one that many Australian men are already choosing.

Many men who choose to undergo a facelift will also undergo skin rejuvenation surgery to minimise scarring, and find that both their personal and professional lives can massively benefit as a result.

Liposuction and Body Contouring

Away from specific instances of breast reduction surgery, liposuction as a more general treatment, along with body contouring, is growing in popularity among men in Australia. While men can choose to undergo these treatments without having had any prior surgery or different treatments, they are common among men who have undergone gastric band or bariatric surgery, and having lost weight are keen to remove remaining unflattering fatty deposits or confidence-draining stretch marks.

These are great options for getting back what you consider to be your normal body shape following a period of weight loss and lifestyle change.
