Most Common Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

While there’s a commonly held belief that only women get plastic surgery, that’s far from the truth. Men also want to look fit and youthful and often choose cosmetic procedures to meet their goals. To help you get a better idea of what most men choose, Dr. Ortiz, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Raleigh is sharing the six most common plastic surgery procedures for men.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure designed to remove loose, sagging skin and fat deposits from around the eye. This can be performed on the upper eyelid to eliminate drooping skin as well as make the eyes look larger and more open. Performing blepharoplasty on the lower eyelid minimizes the appearance of lines and under-eye bags. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a brow lift for a much more youthful, attractive appearance.

Chin Augmentation

In order to achieve more proportionate facial features, eliminate the look of a double chin, or achieve a stronger jawline and profile, many men choose chin augmentation. A chin augmentation involves inserting a silicone implant over the existing chin to create a more pronounced chin.


Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is the most common facial cosmetic procedure for men and women. This procedure is designed to reshape the nose and can include:

  • Narrowing the bridge or reshaping it to remove any bumps
  • Reducing the size of the nostrils
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose

The goal of rhinoplasty for men is to achieve a proportionate nose while still having a strong, masculine appearance.


When diet and exercise don’t remove stubborn areas of fat, men often choose liposuction to eliminate the “dad bod” look and achieve a firmer, more toned physique. During this procedure, Dr. Ortiz uses a thin cannula, similar to an IV needle to remove targeted fat cells and eliminate the unattractive fat deposits. Liposuction for men can be performed on the upper arms, chest, back, and abdomen.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia, or enlargement of breast tissue, is a common concern for men and is often caused by weight gain or obesity, hormonal shifts or imbalance, or even medication. While it’s not uncommon, affecting around 60 percent of the male population, many men are self-conscious and uncomfortable with the look of their chest.

Fortunately, gynecomastia correction, or male breast reduction, can minimize this concern. During this procedure, Dr. Ortiz will remove excess fat and glandular tissue, and may also include liposuction in order to achieve a firmer, flatter chest that displays a more athletic appearance.

Penile Enhancement

Non-surgical, minimally invasive penile enhancement is growing in popularity with men who are concerned with the size of their penis or who would like to provide more pleasure to their partner. During penile enhancement, injections of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring filler, are made into the penile shaft and glands. This adds thickness, or girth, to the penis, and is completely customizable to your preference. Some men will choose to have multiple rounds completed in order to meet their goals.

Botox® and Fillers

Injectables are non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or add fullness to areas that may have lost volume over time. Botox® and Jeuveau are used to relax muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like laugh lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows. Juvederm and Restylane are the most common fillers that fill in fine lines, restore volume, and even minimize the look of some scars. These are all designed to help men achieve a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
