Cosmetic Surgery for Men
Cosmetic surgery is not only for women! The number of men undergoing cosmetic surgery has dramatically increased. The attitude has changed about a number of issues that seemed previously to be the preserve of women. Men also feel that need to look youthful again. Men are now interested in appearing dynamic well into their 40s, 50s and 60s and now look at taking pills, diet, exercise, face-care products and cosmetic surgery. It is no longer just women who look in the mirror and want to change their appearances; men too are becoming aware of their images!
The top five cosmetic procedures for men are: nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction, hair transplantation and, believe it or not, male chest reduction. Of certain procedures carried out, men undergo 14% of all Botox injections, 15% of all liposuction and eyelid surgeries, 20% of laser hair removal and 24% of nose jobs. Botox anti-wrinkle is the most popular.
Not only do men have breast reduction, but some have pectoral implants – this creates a 6 pack abs. Some have bulging pecs and buttock enhancements, as this surgery is seen as a quick fix. Everything in life today must be as quick as possible with no one wanting to wait for anything. However, this has risks involved. Another disadvantage is the cost involved. But besides this there is the expectation. There is falseness about undergoing the surgery and a belief that this cosmetic procedure will ‘cure your problems’.
Costs of cosmetic surgery obviously vary, and will depend on the procedure you wish to undergo as well as where you choose to do it and by whom. It is important of course to look around before committing to anything. You should have a properly qualified cosmetic surgeon, no matter what the cost. There are too many risks involve not to go about this properly. You should also feel comfortable with your surgeon and the chest reduction cosmetic procedure you are about to undergo. Doing your homework is more important than you might think. You should know exactly what you are in for and should not expect unrealistic results.
