Women aren’t the only ones who are concerned about the way they look. Men also want to look younger, fitter, and more attractive–and they’re not afraid to go under the knife either. In 2010 alone, more than 750,000 cosmetic procedures were done by men. Here’s what men are seeing their cosmetic surgeons for these days.
Most men want to achieve the lean, muscular physique that’s synonymous with masculinity in our society. However, many men don’t fit that description. Even though working out regularly and eating a diet full of nutritional foods should bring most men close to their fitness goals, sometimes it’s not quite enough. Genetics may allow stubborn body fat to stick around in certain areas. That’s where liposuction can help. The procedure polishes off a man’s physique while leaving very little scarring.
The nose is the most prominent feature on the face. If a man isn’t satisfied with the way his nose looks, he’s sure to think that it sticks out like a sore thumb. Rhinoplasty can reshape the nose to bring out some features or subdue others. Men with noticeable humps on their nose bridges tend to get them shaved down. Other modifications may be able to reduce the overall length or width of the nose.
Overweight men tend to have more fat in their breasts, giving them an appearance similar to women’s breasts. Other conditions, such as gynecomastia, also contribute to the development of fuller breast tissue. For those who are self-conscious about this part of their body, a breast reduction would eliminate the fat and sag for a firmer, more manly look.
As you can see, both genders can benefit equally from cosmetic surgery. Men may not be as conscious about their looks, but they do care. Getting the right procedure done could be a life-changing event for any man.
