The Right Procedure for the Right Gender

Some plastic surgery procedures exist for both men and women, albeit the objectives for some procedures differ based on the patient's gender. Take facial rejuvenation, for instance; both men and women can benefit from having a face (pardon the hyperbole) that could launch a thousand ships and fire arrows at a thousand hearts. Liposuction is also a procedure for both sexes—removing excess fat from the least appropriate places. Hence, it's inaccurate to say that plastic surgery is mostly for women.

Breast augmentation works differently for men and women. In this procedure, the objective for women is to achieve a plumper and fuller breast. For men, however, the objective is to give the breast (commonly called pecs) a more appropriate size. Having the so-called “man breast” is actually a condition called gynecomastia, wherein the area has more fat than necessary. A simple combination of liposuction and surgery usually takes care of these man breasts.

Of course, other plastic surgery procedures are more common for either gender. Hair transplant procedures are more common in men because they're more prone to baldness than women. On the other hand, vaginal rejuvenation is exclusive to women since men do not possess this reproductive body part. Still, you can consult a licensed and experienced plastic surgeon about the procedures you're interested in.
