There is a noticeable increase in plastic or cosmetic surgery for men of all ages. Leading surgeons have various explanations for the increase in procedures for men and few seem to agree on a leading reason. Despite the disagreement in the leading causes of the increase there is near universal agreement that there is a noticeable increase.
Some surgeons believe that the primary reason there is an increase in plastic or cosmetic surgery for men is that men are becoming more cognizant of the relationship between appearance and confidence. With many industries being highly competitive, men are equating success with self-confidence and/or their physical appearance, leading more men to seek plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery. Men in sales, entertainment, and other highly visible careers are seeking professional assistance to maintain or enhance their appearance. Some industries that are seeing the largest spike in procedures are: real estate, entertainment, advertising sales, and marketing.
The fact that it has become less taboo for men to get plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is also being pointed to as a catalyst in the increase of procedures for men. Over the last two decades, men have taken their appearance more seriously and that is evident in increases in sales of men’s apparel, fashion magazines, grooming products, and cosmetic and plastic surgery. Men of all backgrounds are taking their appearance more seriously and the related industries are taking notice.
The procedures men are receiving parallel many of the procedures women are receiving. Instead of breast augmentation, men are getting pectoral implants, and other types of implants. Facelifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and other procedures are also being received by men in larger numbers than before.
