Earlier this year, data was released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that detailed the rise in male plastic surgery procedures. The overall conclusion was that male procedures had risen 43 percent in the past five years. This conclusion was widely discussed by media outlets and plastic surgery experts like the doctors at Beverly Hills Physicians (249-4040). Moreover, BHP doctors also observed that a larger-than-normal percentage of their male patients had requested rhinoplasty procedures, compared to the average for female patients. Further examination of the ASAPS data confirms this observation. While men only accounted for 9.7 percent of all plastic surgery procedures performed in 2014, they made up 22.4 percent of all rhinoplasty patients.
Here are a few reasons why the rhinoplasty procedure is so popular amongst men:
It Looks Youthful:
Although our bones typically stop growing in our late teens or early twenties, the cartilage in peoples' noses and ears never stops growing as long as we live. For this reason, many elderly people, men especially, have very large noses and ears. Because we are so used to seeing this, many people subconsciously associate a smaller nose with youthfulness. And, because one of the main reasons men get plastic surgery is to appear more youthful to compete in the job market, a nose job goes a long way toward achieving this goal.
It Looks Natural:
The reason that the rhinoplasty is one of the more popular procedures in general is that it typically produces results that blend extremely well with a patient's facial aesthetics. While certain procedures, such as buttock or breast augmentation, are designed to make certain features stand out, lots of men elect a rhinoplasty because they simply want a nose that will blend in. After a rhinoplasty, a person's nose can finally complement their other features to enhance their looks, instead of getting in the way.

Kybella (Deoxycholic Acid) Injections
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness(double chin). It is a non-surgical, 15 to 20 minute in-office treatment that destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once destroyed, those fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Once the goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Many patients treated with Kybella experienced visible contouring of their chin profile in only two to four treatments. Up to six treatments may be administered.
