Plastic surgery is more popular than ever with men and sharing that you’ve had any type of cosmetic surgery and your experience is no longer taboo to talk about. Not only is going under the knife something the majority of people who’ve had it are proud to share with their friends and family, but something people are openly announcing to the public via social media forums like RealSelf, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Not surprisingly, the number of men undergoing plastic surgery and receiving in-office treatments like Botox, Dysport, lip injections and facial fillers has surged over recent years; and they’re not embarrassed to talk about it. Men today seem to be more self-confident and are openly seeking aesthetic improvements.
The range of plastic surgery procedures that are the most requested among men tend to be liposuction of the abs, love handles and back, gynecomastia, or male chest reduction, neck lifts, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Generally, the types of men choosing to have these procedures are CEO’s, athletic dads, college students, body builders, and of course male models – showing that plastic surgery is popular and considered by men across the board.
Often, men are seeking to have surgery because of their careers and they want to remain competitive in the marketplace. Men are also turning to plastic surgery to restore a more youthful appearance, or they want to get back into shape and get rid of some extra fat. In order to obtain the results they are not getting from their efforts of working out in the gym, men are getting pectoral implants, calf implants, and even gluteal implants. They’re also choosing to undergo body-sculpting liposuction to better define their abs and back.
Plastic surgery and in-office cosmetic treatments have typically been thought of as something predominantly for women until recent years. Now, with the variety of plastic surgery procedures available, it is something both men and women are seeking as a way to become the best version of themselves and to gain a competitive advantage. The popularity of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures will likely continue to increase in popularity as society continues to embrace the positive effects plastic surgery can have on our professional and social lives.
