Why Are Men Having More Cosmetic Surgery?
August 26, 2018
Men and Cosmetic Surgery
More men are readily seeking cosmetic surgery thanks to increased societal acceptance and greater awareness of its benefits. In fact, according to the American Academy for Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, 31 percent of men report that they are “extremely likely” to consider undergoing an aesthetic enhancement.
Plus, the availability and number of non-invasive procedures provides many guys with safe and effective treatment options that require little to no downtime.
So, which procedures are men most likely to have? Here are three of the most popular cosmetic treatments amongst male patients.
1. Dermal Fillers Provide Instant Results With Zero Downtime
Advancements in dermal filler techniques and the type and number of products makes them especially attractive to men. These cosmetic injectables, which are often made of hyaluronic acid, are able to restore volume, contour facial features, correct wrinkles and folds, and even fill-in acne scars with very natural results.
Best of all, most dermal fillers can be administered in less than 20 minutes, provide immediate benefits, and allow guys to resume all normal activities right away.
2. Surgical and Non-Invasive Body Contouring Can Reduce a Spare Tire, Love Handles, and Gynecomastia
Liposuction has long been a favorite cosmetic procedure for men, as it allows them to effectively eliminate unwanted fat around the abdomen, flanks, and chest. In the hands of a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, the procedure has minimal risks and can be completed in 1-2 hours. Liposuction also carries very little downtime for permanent results.
That being said, non-invasive body contouring options like CoolSculpting, SculpSure, and Kybella are steadily on the rise for male patients as a way to remove stubborn pockets of fat without surgery, incisions, anesthesia, or recovery.
3. Facial Rejuvenation Treatments Are Also In-Demand Amongst Men
In an effort to combat the signs of aging, many guys seek Botox to smooth forehead lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles between the eyebrows. This non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation helps men look younger, more refreshed, and takes just a matter of minutes. Effects typically last three-to-four months.
On the other hand, facial plastic surgery, like chin augmentation or a facelift, may require recovery, but it also affords men more significant results that can revitalize and enhance their appearance for years to come.
