Dr. LeRoy Discusses How Plastic Surgery is Gaining Popularity with Male Patients

While men choose to undergo plastic surgery for many reasons, the most common reasons we see at Dr. LeRoy’s practice include: wanting to look younger and be more competitive in the workforce, getting rid of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise, and subtly correcting the signs of aging.
In 2009, an ASAPS research study found that Liposuction, Rhinoplasty, Blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery), Gynecomastia (male breast reduction), and hair transplantation were the top 5 most common cosmetic surgery procedures.
