Interest in plastic surgery for men has been steadily rising as more and more men are enjoying the benefits of body contouring, anti-aging treatments, and facial enhancement. What’s driving this change?
A Competitive Edge in the Workplace
An increasing number of men undergo cosmetic enhancements to help them compete in the business world. In fact, career advancement is one of the most commonly cited reasons for men pursuing plastic surgery. The enhancements offered by plastic surgery give men greater confidence, make them appear more masculine, and boost their overall attractiveness—a subtle competitive advantage that can deliver “handsome” returns.
Vitality From the Inside Out
As Baby Boomers age, more men approach plastic surgery to look the way they feel: young. Like women, men are physically in better shape than their parents at the same age. Life expectancy for boomers increased dramatically over the prior generation, and men want to look younger to match the healthy, youthful way they feel.
Men may look in the mirror and feel that their outward appearance isn’t reflecting their inner vitality. Facial plastic surgery for men, such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or a brow lift, can counteract sagging skin and an aged, stern look.
A Desire for a “Daddy Do-Over”
Plastic surgery also offers an opportunity for men to get the body they’ve always wanted. A “Daddy Do-Over” (the counterpart to the popular mommy makeover for women) lets men target multiple areas of the body in a single surgical procedure.
Some of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men include:
- Liposuction to contour the flanks, midsection, and other areas with stubborn fat
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) to remove excess skin and create a more sculpted midsection
- Male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia
- Neck lift to remove loose neck skin, reduce a double chin, and contour the jawline
- Facelift to address jowling and sagging in the midface
- Eyelid surgery to brighten a hooded or tired-looking eye area
Men who aren’t yet ready to commit to surgery are also being drawn to nonsurgical enhancements, including CoolSculpting®, BOTOX®, and laser skin resurfacing. Learn about these and other procedures in our related blog post.
