Men and Plastic Surgery

Until the last few years, the idea of men undergoing plastic surgery was an uncommon occurrence. However, with over 280,000 cosmetic surgical procedures and more than six million cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed on men last year alone, it is clear that many men have become more conscious of their physical appearance and are deciding to do something about it. Of the many factors that contribute to men undergoing plastic surgery, the following are some of the most common reasons for doing so.

Employment

Difficult economic times that have persisted during the last couple of years have made it hard for many people to get jobs. To stay competitive with younger males entering the job market, men in the 40’s and above are relying on facial rejuvenation treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and facelift procedures to maintain a youthful facial appearance.

Body Improvements

Looking healthy and fit has become a popular aspect of our society, and a way of life for many men. When proper diet and exercise do not produce the results that are desired, some men turn to procedures such as gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction) to broaden the chest or a tummy tuck to slim down waistline.

Confidence

We all know that men are supposed to be strong individuals, but even the most prideful man can feel self-conscious about himself. To restore confidence, a chemical peel can provide healthier and younger looking skin by eliminating fine lines and blemishes.
