More Men Opting for Cosmetic Surgery
Increases in Nose Reshaping, Eyelid Surgery, Botox, Laser Hair Removal seen among men
With an eye toward social and professional success, more men of all ages and from all walks of life are embracing cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and their potential for improvement. Cosmetic surgery has gone mainstream in the past decade and men are increasingly comfortable about taking action to boost their appearance. Though still less than women, the number of men who seek cosmetic surgery for the face and body continues to grow every year, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Whether their goal is a rejuvenated facial appearance, a trimmer physique or a more proportionate and shapely nose, many men today are motivated to deal with the things they don’t particularly like when they look in the mirror.
“With the high value our society places on looking young and fit, we are seeing more and more men who are turning to cosmetic surgery,” said Dr. William J. Hedden, board-certified plastic surgeon in Birmingham, Alabama. “More men want to achieve their best possible appearance and do something positive for themselves.”
Dr. Hedden also mentioned shifting attitudes toward cosmetic surgery and today’s competitive job market as reasons more men are seeking enhancement with cosmetic surgery.
