In 2020, there were 289,000 plastic surgery procedures performed on men, with liposuction, rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, and blepharoplasty being the top choices. The following procedures were the most sought after surgical procedures by men to achieve their aesthetic goals while improving their confidence in their body.


This procedure is effective at removing excess fat from specific areas of the body, such as the thighs, hips, knees, buttocks, abdomen, under the chin, neck, cheeks, and upper arms. It’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss tool, but rather a way to contour the body and remove stubborn pockets of fat. The best candidates for liposuction are men who are already at or near their ideal weight, have positive eating habits, and exercise regularly.


Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance and function of the nose. This procedure is customized to meet the individual needs and goals of the patient while taking into consideration the shape of the face and gender of the patient. Rhinoplasty can be used to correct nasal issues, improve the appearance of the nose, or repair any injuries or birth defects.


Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure that removes loose skin and fat from the abdomen while tightening the abdominal wall. There are two commonly used variants of the tummy tuck used by most men seeking the operation: mini tummy tucks and a full tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck is a less invasive option that targets loose skin below the belly button, while a full tummy tuck is recommended for those with significant abdominal wall damage, loose skin, excess fat, and stretch marks above the belly button. Both procedures are best suited for men who are in good health and have skin issues, damaged abdominal muscles, or significant space between rectus muscles.


Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both, depending on the patient’s specific needs. This procedure removes excess skin and reduces bagginess around the eyes. While blepharoplasty is typically done for cosmetic reasons to reduce the signs of aging, it can also be recommended for patients whose sagging or bulging upper eyelids are impairing their vision.

These four popular procedures can help men achieve their aesthetic goals and improve their self-confidence. To find out more about which is right for you, contact Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with one of our practitioners.
