Think plastic surgery is just for women? Think again. More men are having plastic surgery procedures and treatments than ever before, according to new statistics. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, men are seeking out Botox, brow-lifts, male breast-reduction surgery and even liposuction procedures. A study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery reveals that nearly one-third of men were “extremely likely” to consider undergoing plastic and cosmetic procedures.
Why Are More Men Having Cosmetic Surgery?
Wanting to look good is not just a characteristic of women. Men also want to look their best. Many men say they want to have cosmetic procedures because they want to look younger to attract a mate or to maintain a competitive edge in the workplace. Some men also seek out plastic procedures because plastic surgery has become less taboo for men in recent years.
Additionally, many plastic surgery procedures have advanced in techniques and technology, which means procedures that traditionally meant lengthy surgeries and long recovery are a thing of the past. This is attractive to many men because they can have a little work done here or there and return to work and their regular routines.
What Procedures Are Popular for Men?
The most popular procedures include facial procedures such as endotoxin injections (Botox = Brotox and Xeomin = Xeoman), dermal fillers, face-lifts and brow-lifts. These touches can help to quickly contour the jaw, nose or brow and give men a distinguished look.
Body procedures include liposuction and body-lifts for men who have experienced significant weight loss or cannot tone stubborn areas such as the midsection easily. Some men may opt for abdominoplasty/tummy tuck surgery and liposuction to help sculpt their abs. Others look for male breast-reduction procedures such as liposuction to treat gynecomastia, a condition that causes the development of unwanted fat and breast tissue in men.
