Showbiz Jun 26, 2016

Vanity goes beyond gender, and men are more self-conscious about their looks today than ever before.

More and more men are going under the knife to reduce the signs of aging, improve appearances or even contour their body.

From facelifts to nose jobs, cosmetic procedures among men are boosting confidence and making them more money as well.

According to research, people that are more attractive make more money, get better promotions and are more likely to get hired over someone "less attractive."

Younger-looking male employees are considered more of an asset to a company, which has some men flocking to the nearest cosmetic clinic over their lunch break.

Check out this list of seven invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures for men.

1. Rhinoplasty

Commonly referred to as a "nose job," this procedure tends to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men. Men who are unsatisfied with the shape or size of their nose can opt for this procedure or go with non-invasive options like injectables to attain that dream nose.

2. Liposuction

Liposuction removes fat deposits under the skin, and more and more men are going for cosmetic body contouring. Two non-invasive alternatives to this procedure are CoolSculpting, which freezes fat, and Liposonix, which melts fat.

3. Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction surgery reduces and defines the pectoral area to get rid of pesky "man boobs." It's popular among men who suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that causes enlarged breasts due to hormones, drug use, genetics or obesity. Non-invasive procedures like CoolSculpting and Liposonix are a substitute.

4. Face Lift/Neck Lift

This procedure reduces the signs of aging in the neck and facial area, and it's a popular cosmetic procedure for men who want to get rid of sagging facial skin, loose neck skin and deep creases around the face and neck. Non-invasive options are Botox or dermal fillers.

5. Hair Transplant

The most common procedure for men suffering from male pattern baldness is a hair transplant. The surgeon harvests hair follicles from a donor site on the body and transplants them in naturally occurring "follicular units." Patience is required for the results, taking anywhere from nine to twelve months.

6. Injectables

Injectables like Botox and Juvéderm are the most popular nonsurgical procedures among both men and women, minimizing signs of aging temporarily.

7. Laser Hair Removal

Many men are choosing the laser over the razor for permanent removal of unwanted hair. The procedure is safe, fast and effective and suitable for all parts of the face and body. Unwanted hair can be gone in five to eight sessions over a four-to-six-week period.
