Fellas get the ladies to spill the news; plastic surgery is no longer just for women!
When you think plastic surgery, what sex is the first to come to mind? We get it, society is progressive now, but the first thought is women, am I right? This is no longer the case with my friends, the newest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that male cosmetic procedures are steadily on the rise! With the benefits of plastic surgery, men are starting to see the positive impact this can make in their lives as well.
What a man wants, what a man needs, anyone else a Christina Aguilera fan? Sorry, moving on!
Long ago are the times where men were expected to reach a social norm of “manhood.” With culture and styles shifting, men now have more freedom to take pride in their appearance with a clean and manicured look. We have more men in suits and ties than we do on the ranch, so it’s time they fit the part of business chic. Also, more men becoming single at a later age, divorce is sad we know, but hello new dating pool of manicured men! Let’s face it, men have insecurities just as much as women, and it’s time they are allowed to embrace those and join us on the road to a better body image.
Yes, more men are visiting their plastic surgeon in Manhattan but generally not for the same reason most women are. Men are more interested in correcting their physic. Popular physic augmentations among men include liposuction for the love handles or “beer belly,” or liposuction of the neck to avoid having to get a facelift. Noninvasive procedures such as Botox, soft tissue fillers and Kybella are also becoming seemingly popular amongst men to erase wrinkles, restore lost facial volume and improve the ‘double chin.’

Alright guys, let’s get started
Research, research, research is always the first step in any cosmetic procedure. Make sure you’re certain of the risks, outcome and what the procedure entails. Cosmetic procedures should never be a spur of the moment decision. Find a surgeon you trust and can be open with about any concerns or questions you may have. ASPS has great facts and statistics about surgical and noninvasive procedures available. The first step is setting the consultation with your trusted surgeon. Even if plastic surgery is only a thought, speaking with your surgeon about reasons why and what the next steps would entail will help make the process as smooth as possible. The decision is solely yours, at Preminger Plastic Surgery we take your concerns and needs into account above all else.
