More Men Seek Cosmetic Surgery Treatment
Friday, May 15, 2015
It seems that men and women have yet
another thing in common: the desire to improve their appearance with cosmetic
surgery. One thing does still differ between the sexes, however, and that is
that men have a higher tendency to keep news of their procedures under wraps
than women do.
Regardless, according to RealSelf.com, a
cosmetic surgery trend report site, 72% of doctors surveyed have seen an
increase in male clients during the last year. More than half of the new
clientele are between the ages 24 and 44.
The most popular procedures for men
appear to be liposuction, tummy tucks, CoolSculpting, hair transplants, and
jawline fillers. Additionally, dermatologists are being asked to smooth
wrinkles and tighten up sagging facial skin with procedures that require little
or no downtime.
Men aren’t as shy about admitting to
improving their smiles with treatments such as Invisalign, perhaps because of
the widespread acceptance of orthodontics for both boys and girls during teen
and young adult years.
In general, recommendations are similar
for men and women: Hire a board-certified surgeon who you feel comfortable
working with. Ask for before-and-after photos and discuss all your options for
achieving the look you want. One additional factor men should consider is that
because of a general difference in skin thickness, men are advised towards
moderation, as work is easier to detect on men.
