Perception and image matter—and in today’s society, your perception and image are determined greatly by your appearance. Individuals who are considered to be physically attractive also are more successful. They are considered to be more reliable and marketable. They are more likely to be hired for a job or promoted. It is no wonder, then, that an increasing number of men are seeking treatments from an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. B. Aviva Preminger.

Why are more men seeking cosmetic procedures?

In 2017 alone, more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on male patients, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The reasons why vary. Many men in the workforce are looking for a competitive edge anywhere they can get it. For men over 40, cosmetic treatments represent a new way to gain that advantage by maintaining a more youthful appearance or a younger jawline. Others may want to recapture their youth, or just want to look their best for major events such as their adult child’s wedding. Whatever your reason for seeking cosmetic treatments, you can trust Dr. B. Aviva Preminger and the rest of the staff at Preminger Plastic Surgery to perform even the most complicated procedures and produce results that make you look more attractive and youthful.

Even younger men may pursue cosmetic treatments such as body contouring procedures. The previously mentioned ASPS statistics note a 23 percent increase in liposuctions and a 12 percent uptick in tummy tucks among men in the past five years. The number of male breast reductions also has increased, to the tune of approximately 30 percent.

Older men prefer procedures to make their faces appear more youthful and can achieve results by having an expertly trained cosmetic surgeon administer minimally invasive treatments such as Botox or laser rejuvenation. A laser rejuvenation can improve irregularities in the appearance of skin, eliminate age spots, minimize or remove acne scars, or remove unwanted hair located on the face, neck, or back.

Botox and other dermal fillers also are becoming more popular among men. These treatments can be used to treat anything ranging from moderate to severe frown lines, as well as smile lines, sagging skin, and loss of volume. These treatments give men a lift and skin tightening to help them look masculine. Injectables can even add definition to the chin to create a stronger-looking jawline. According to ASPS statistics, in 2017, nearly 100,000 men had some form of dermal filler injection treatment—a whopping 99 percent increase since 2000. Botox treatments, in particular, were four times as popular in 2017 as they were in 2000.
