Male Plastic Surgery Continues to Rise

There was a time that plastic surgery was only considered for women. However, many plastic surgeons are reporting that procedures for men are on the rise. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men has doubled between 1997 and 2012. Why have so many men made the decision to work with their trusted board-certified plastic surgeons on cosmetic procedures? Here are two primary reasons more men are getting the results they want with cosmetic procedures.

Career Advancement: Every man wants the competitive edge to succeed in his chosen career. For some, this entails some enhancement of their masculine looks. Studies from the London Guildhall University suggest that men who look better and more confident earn more money. Liposuction can help men look leaner by eliminating stubborn fat deposits in stomach areas and the common “love handles” that can develop, Facelifts can help men look younger and fit. Eyelid surgery lessens the bags under eyes and can make men look younger, brighter and more active. Consulting your board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step in creating the confidence every man needs to succeed in the boardroom.

Medical Purposes: Although it can be an uncomfortable subject, some men will develop gynecomastia (the presence of enlarged breasts) in their lifetimes. This can be caused by a number of reasons, including pubertal changes, pathological conditions, medication reactions, and genetic disorders. For those that live with Gynecomastia, social anxiety and embarrassment are very common, resulting in low self-esteem and decreased social interactions. However, for men living with this condition, there is hope. Cosmetic surgery can treat gynecomastia, and help men get their confidence back. The first step is to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon today to learn about your options.
