Popular Cosmetic Procedures among Men Over 40

by | Published on Aug 29, 2016 | Plastic Surgery / Cosmetic Surgery

Forget the midlife crisis, it’s time for the midlife refresh! Gone are the days when men over 40 were expected to silently accept the lines on their faces and the whispers of “silver fox.” Today, men are embracing self-care in all its forms, and that includes exploring cosmetic procedures. From subtle tweaks to bolder transformations, from laser liposuction to gynecomastia treatment, the options are growing by the day.

As per the gender breakdown in the 2022 ASPS Procedural Statistics report, there has been remarkable growth in cosmetic procedures among men, witnessing a staggering 207% increase since 2019. This surge is attributed to various factors:

  • A shift in the retirement landscape, where more men are opting to extend their careers beyond the age of 65. Seeking a youthful appearance becomes a strategic move to sustain professional vitality and competitiveness in the job market.
  • Social media has been influential over the last decade, reshaping conversations around plastic surgery. Increased visibility of male celebrities and influencers sharing their plastic surgery experiences have contributed to a cultural shift, making cosmetic procedures more widely accepted among men.

Today, more men are paying visits to their preferred plastic surgeons. Many men are including minimally invasive and surgical procedures in their health and self-care plans to help them become the best version of themselves.

Cosmetic Surgery Options for Men above 40

Cosmetic Surgery Options

  • Liposuction: As men get older, fat deposits are likely to build up in areas such as the abdomen, flanks and chest. It’s therefore hardly surprising that liposuction is the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure among men over 40. Plastic surgeons now use minimally-invasive modalities such as BodyTite, Smartlipo Triplex and VASERLipo to remove stubborn fat and help men achieve a trim, fitter-looking physique. An ASPS report highlights that 19,275 male liposuction procedures were performed in 2022.
  • Gynecomastia treatment: Do you know that 22,900 males underwent gynecomastia surgery in 2022? Hormonal changes, use of certain drugs, heredity, obesity, or Gilbert’s syndrome all can result in the buildup of excessive tissue in the chest area. Gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts occur due to hormonal changes and certain medical conditions. Though the condition is generally harmless, it may cause embarrassment for some men and detract from their quality of life. Gynecomastia treatment in NYC involves removing the excess glandular tissue and liposuction to reshape the chest for a manly look. Safe and effective, minimally invasive liposuction devices using radio-frequency energy or laser energy are used to perform the procedure.
  • Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty): The ASPS reports that tummy tuck is the second most in-demand procedure for men. This procedure effectively removes excess skin and fat while tightening ab muscles, giving a toned and sculpted abdomen and thus a slimmer appearance. Performed using Smartlipo Triplex, this minimally invasive procedure is particularly beneficial for men who have undergone significant weight loss, experienced abdominal changes due to aging, or simply want to achieve a more sculpted midsection.
  • Lower body lift: ASPS reports that this procedure saw a surge with a 61% increase since 2019. Lower body lift is a comprehensive surgical intervention designed to address sagging skin and excess fat in the lower torso, including the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. The lower body lift aims to create a firmer, smoother, and more contoured lower body silhouette, ultimately improving the overall body proportion.

Some other procedures that men consider to improve their looks include eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), cheek implants (malar augmentation), and chin augmentation (mentoplasty). If you are in your 40s and intend to have any of these procedures, choose an established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NYC. In a reliable practice, the surgeon will provide personalized treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
