Why More Men Are Getting Plastic Surgery Right Now
Women have historically made up the bulk of plastic surgery patients but as more males are getting interested in cosmetic surgery, a new trend in plastic surgery is emerging and altering the landscape. Reports have shown that 3x as many men are getting plastic surgery today compared to twenty years ago so the stigma against male plastic surgery is quickly declining.
According to data from ASAPS (American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery), the most common plastic surgery operations for males include liposuction, eyelid surgery, stomach tucks, and facelifts. Men are also receiving non-invasive procedures like injectables because it is common for everyone to want to feel and look more youthful.
Social networking is perhaps what has fueled this emerging trend of male plastic surgery. Men (and people in general_ compete for “likes” and “follows” on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. In the “swipe right/swipe left” world, appearances may make or break an account’s success. Plastic surgery helps men achieve their ideal look so that they can compete with other men on social media and dating platforms.
Another area of competition for men is in their careers and the job market. More seasoned men want to appear as excited and energized as their young coworkers so that they can compete for projects and promotions. Businesses often prioritize youthful, energetic workers, so it is important for men to feel confident in their appearance.
Males with excellent features frequently wish to take all possible measures to keep them and male plastic surgery often emphasizes and enhances men’s natural features. Typical operations include those intended to delay and reverse aging effects. Men in the performing or modeling industries may find these procedures especially beneficial. However, many men want to maintain their youthfulness and appear attractive to people around them, such as a spouse or close friends.
