If you're like most people, you probably think of plastic surgery as something that women do. In fact, women are the ones getting more than 90% of all plastic surgery procedures. However, plastic surgery for men is still a trend on the rise, and plastic surgeons have developed procedures specifically to appeal to their potential male patients. Take a look at three little-known plastic surgeries aimed specifically at men that you probably would never have imagined.
Many men worry about not having enough hair on their heads, but on their faces? As it turns out, that's a worry too, but surgeons have found the answer. In a process that's very similar to hair transplants on the head, surgeons take hair follicles from another part of the body and transplant them on to the upper lip area. The goal is to create a natural-looking mustache for men who either can't grow one, or who can't grow one as thick as they'd prefer. This surgery is particularly popular among Middle Eastern men, who view the mustache as representative of their virility and maturity.
The same procedure can also be used to transplant hair to other parts of the body. Men who want to grow a fuller beard or maximize their chest hair can benefit from the same techniques that are being used to grow surgically enhanced mustaches.
For the man whose voice more closely resembles Prince's than Barry White's, the voice can be a great source of insecurity. This is especially true for men whose jobs or hobbies require occasional or frequent public speaking. But your voice isn't something that can be changed on a whim, right? Well, it may not be something that you want to rush into, but yes, now you can actually change your voice with the help of a plastic surgeon.
The depth of your voice is determined by how robust your vocal chords are. The fuller and plumper they are, the deeper your voice will be. So, for the man whose voice is a little too high pitched, surgeons can remove fat deposits from elsewhere in the body and inject it into the vocal chords, resulting in a deeper voice.
Are you losing your shirt at the weekly poker game because you can't control all those tells in your face that give your hand away? You're in luck, because at least one plastic surgeon has perfected "Pokertox"—a Botox procedure aimed at giving you the perfect poker face.
Botox isn't anything new, but the difference for Pokertox patients is that the injections are targeted to address their specific facial tells. It works because you spend time with the doctor ahead of time, analyzing your personal facial tells and so that he can decide where you need the injections the most.
As these procedures show, men can benefit from plastic surgery just as much as women. If there's something about your body that you'd like to change, it's worth a consultation with a plastic surgeon such as John Bulger, MD in your area to find out if there's a procedure that's right for you.Share
