There has been a significant rise in the number of men seeking cosmetic surgery in recent years. Therefore, it’s unsurprising to see that in the newly released list of cosmetic surgery trends 2020 by The Aesthetic Society predicts a further rise in male body contouring surgery this year.

Here, we’ll look at why male body contouring surgery is expected to rise and the types of procedures it involves.

Why is male body contouring surgery on the rise?

The number of men seeking cosmetic surgery is continuously increasing year upon year. There are a number of factors said to contribute to this, including a shift in attitude and more pressure placed upon men to look their best.

In terms of body contouring specifically, it is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring very little downtime. It aims to target small stubborn pockets of fat and excess skin. One of the newest procedures gaining in popularity with male patients is muscle stimulation treatments. These are often provided in combination with other body contouring procedures.

What body contouring procedures does it involve?

So, what does body contouring consist of for men? Well, it largely focuses on liposuction. Newer liposuction techniques have reduced the invasiveness of the procedure, targeting very small areas for a more defined result. Some procedures also combine liposuction with fat transfer.

Another contouring procedure which continues to remain popular is male breast reduction. Used to treat gynaecomastia, this procedure can help men to regain their confidence and eliminate male breasts.

Although most procedures focus on the body, many men are also seeking out anti-ageing facial treatments. These include a jaw lift, brow lift and non-invasive treatments such as anti-wrinkle treatments.

These are just some of the most common procedures men are set to undergo in 2020. Due to a shift in the way the public views cosmetic surgery, it has become much more acceptable for men to alter their appearance by going under the knife.
