Why is Male Plastic Surgery on the Rise?

Published - 19 January 2021, Tuesday

In our continuing series highlighting plastic surgery procedures in Singapore, Expat Choice caught up with internationally acclaimed Plastic Surgeon Dr Marco Faria Correa to discuss Male Plastic Surgery.

According to Dr. Marco, men, as much as women, take pride in their appearance. Over the past few years, Dr. Marco has seen a marked increase in demand from men requesting plastic surgery to maintain and restore their youthful, healthy physique.

Dr Marco shares, “the statistics speak volumes. Men frequently wish to discuss male plastic surgery procedures when they visit my clinic here in Singapore.”

“More than ever, men are choosing to go under the knife or needle to combat their aesthetic concerns. Both surgical and non-surgical male cosmetic procedures rose about 25 percent in the year ending December 2020.”

“Fuelled by today´s selfie-obsessed social media culture, and as a response for having to wear a mask in public, coupled with a more contained recovery period while working from home, patients have jumped at the chance to schedule less invasive procedures involving minimal recovery,” share Dr. Marco.

So, the question is left to be asked, what do men want?

According to Dr. Marco the most requested treatments for men are:

Cosmetic Face Procedures:

  • BOTOX
  • Eyelid Surgery: upper eyelid, lower eyelid, eye bags
  • Upper Face Lift
  • Full Face Lift and Neck Lift
  • Double Chin Liposculpture
  • Fat Grafting to the Face
  • Rhinoplasty also known as Nose Job
  • Chin Implant also known as Chin Augmentation

Cosmetic Body Procedures:

  • Liposuction, the most frequent surgery for men in areas such as the male breast (male breast reduction or gynecomastia), flanks or hips, abdomen and back.
  • Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck especially considered after gain or loss of a significant amount of weight to reduce or eradicate redundant folds of unwanted skin, or alternatively concerning rectus diastasis and umbilical hernia.

Dr. Marco also shares, “one of the most frequent patient expectations is concerning the end result of each cosmetic procedure; the goal - to attain a youthful, yet natural appearance.”

“It is important for a Plastic Surgeon to assess Cosmetic Face & Body procedures case by case, to identify and truly understand the harmony, the balance, and the natural aesthetic of each individual,” shares Dr. Marco.

As a parting statement Dr. Marco elaborates, “we tailor treatments for men specifically to the male aesthetic, by considering male anatomy and their personal goals for treatment while maintaining a masculine appearance, to improve our clients self-body image, self-esteem and self-confidence.”

Dr. Marco is a pragmatic surgeon who has mastered the traditional open methods by applying the latest techniques for properly concealing the scars in the anatomical folds and crease, leaving inconspicuous scars.

He is a well-versed Plastic Surgeon in the various benefits and limitations of the different procedures and methods available; hence, Dr. Marco will always advise his patients on what are the best options available to achieve the outcome his patients desire – and expect!
