Men are lining up for plastic surgery like never before

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men rose 29 percent from 2000 to 2017. Injectable fillers have seen an astounding 99 percent increase in that same time, while eyelid surgeries and liposuction remain top treatments for guys who need a lasting fix. Drooping eyes and saggy necks can age a man beyond his years — and even mar his image in the workplace. Tightening a droopy neck is a little different for men than it is for women. Whereas women’s skin thins and dries as it ages, a doctor says, “men have thicker skin, so there are more blood vessels there — they tend to deposit more fat in the area.” Baggy eyes are typically due to genetics, aging or both, says the doctor, which means she sees men of all ages. She cautions that bags aren’t always caused by fat, so it’s important to rule out allergies and other potential causes first. “If it is fat, it can be removed or repositioned into a different area,” such as cheekbones, the doctor explains. Minor cases may be treated using tear-trough injections of either filler or fat, which pad hollow areas to minimize the appearance of bags.
