Increasing Demand for Cosmetic Surgery Among Men – Contributing Factors

Share Button

Cosmetic procedures and beauty treatments have always been associated with women desiring a younger and more attractive appearance. However, things have changed a lot in recent times. Men too are now increasingly seeking aesthetic procedures that can offer real results.

According to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, though the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics reveal that 90 percent of cosmetic surgery candidates are women, middle-aged and older men are undergoing these procedures at a rate that is nearly three times what it was 15 years before. What are the factors that motivate men to go for cosmetic surgery?

  • Unlike in the earlier days, when people retire at 55 and enjoy a comfortable, relaxed life, there’s a need to work longer and for that they need to stay competitive in the workforce.
  • Many jobs attach considerable importance to looks, especially those where one has to interact with customers and the public.
  • Your appearance does have an impact on your emotional makeup – you feel good when you look good.
  • Improved appearance leads to increased self esteem and self confidence.

The Social Media Factor

The influence of social media in relation to the increase in plastic surgery demands cannot be neglected. People want to look good in their profile pictures. In addition, the "selfie" trend that is rampant also has contributed to the increased demand for male cosmetic surgery. Men just want to look better. It is a good sign because undoubtedly one needs to take care of oneself.

The latest statistics report from the American Society of Plastic surgeons noted that nose reshaping is the procedure most demanded by men followed by eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reduction in men, and facelift.

The decision to undergo a cosmetic procedure should be taken after serious thought and a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon. The important thing is that you should be a candidate for the desired procedure, which only your surgeon can determine. You must be totally committed to following all the pre- and post-surgery instructions, and arrange everything needed to facilitate a speedy and smooth recovery.
