Cosmetic Surgery For Men
Every day, more and more men are choosing to undergo cosmetic
surgery procedures to correct signs of aging, improve their appearance, fix any damage,
and keep their bodies forever young.
Cosmetic surgery is not just a women’s sport. Every day, more and more men are choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery procedures to correct signs of aging, improve their appearance, fix any damage, and to keep their bodies forever young.
Gynecomastia is the overdevelopment of the male breast. The glandular tissue of the breast swells, usually in response to an excess of the female hormone estrogen or a lack of the male hormone testosterone. It occurs in babies, teen boys, and older men.
Male pectoral implants in Toronto are becoming an increasingly popular way to achieve greater chest definition. It isn’t always possible to develop the muscle contour you desire, especially given today’s pressures to balance work and lifestyle demands. Pectoral implants shape, enlarge, and firm your chest muscles, helping you attain the look you want while still allowing for natural appearance when the pectoral muscles are either flexed or relaxed.
Cosmetic surgery is not just a women’s sport.
Every day, more and more men are choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery procedures to correct signs of aging, improve their appearance, fix any damage, and to keep their bodies forever young. Who says that we have to age gracefully? In today’s world, we no longer need to wear our signs of aging as a badge of honour because perceptions and stereotypes of cosmetic surgery have changed with the times. There are now a wide variety of cosmetic surgery procedures commonly elected by male patients. Whether you’re a UFC fighter or a businessman, we have a procedure that may be right for you.
BOTOX – one of the most popular procedures for men
Fillers – Fill in deep creases and add volume to an aging face
Non-Surgical Facelift – a combination of Voluma or Perlane and other injectables helps to lift the face in a non-surgical manner
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT WOMEN WANT AND WHAT MEN WANT FROM COSMETIC SURGERY ACCORDING TO THE ASPS
The most popular surgical procedure for women (breast augmentation), is a very obvious one, men tend to favour more subtle procedures that erase their perceived faults.
Facelifts, rhinoplasty, otoplasty (ear surgery), and liposuction – all popular plastic surgery procedures for men – remove either wrinkles, bumps, or fat from the male body. Furthermore, the only cosmetic procedure especially for men, a surgical procedure to correct gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts, also improves by subtraction.
It’s no surprise that men want procedures with hidden incision points, minimal scarring, and results that elicit a response of: “Have you lost weight?” instead of a response of: “Is that your real nose?” Men’s desire for subtlety has even led plastic surgeons to develop variations on common procedures. For instance, a man’s facelift is handled quite differently from a woman’s, for more subtle and masculine results.
Cosmetic surgery for men continues to grow and gain acceptance. It’s not about economics; it’s not about class distinctions; it’s about self-esteem. As long as plastic surgery solutions remain safe, affordable, and effective, men will continue to “take a little off the top.”
More Men Opting For Plastic Surgery, Not Just Cosmetic Refreshers Like Botox And Fillers.
Even though men are less open to discussing their plastic surgery treatments, recent statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) show that more men are going under the knife. Overall cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in men were up 2 percent in 2010 compared to 2009. However, many male surgical procedures increased significantly such as facelifts rising 14 percent in 2010 while male liposuction increased 7 percent.
2010 ASPS statistics show that men underwent more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures, both minimally-invasive and surgical. The majority of the top 10 fastest-growing cosmetic procedures for men were surgical in contrast to the previous explosive growth in minimally-invasive treatments. The rise is most likely due to the large number of aging boomers wanting to do something about their appearance. Another trend plastic surgeons see is men reaching retirement age who want to stay competitive with their younger counterparts in the workplace. They want to look and feel good, and when they have the financial means to do it, they are increasingly opting to undergo plastic surgery.
