Are More Men Getting Cosmetic Surgery Than Ever Before?
Studies already show there are a record number of women getting cosmetic surgery with Thailand one of the most popular locations. However, the number of men looking for different cosmetic procedures is also on the rise. We have gathered statistics from different countries around the world which show men are indeed going down the cosmetic surgical route in record numbers.
It appears as if the removal of ‘man boobs’ is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the modern era. Gynecomastia carries something of a stigma and men clearly want to remove the excess fat that causes their chest to look less than masculine. A quick trip to a cosmetic surgeon not only gets rid of the fat, it also involves reshaping the chest.
Nose reshaping is another popular procedure among men as they bid to have the symmetry a well-shaped nose can bring to the face. As men are more likely to have pattern baldness than women, hair transplants are also near the top of the list. However, this list is substantial and growing by the day it seems. Men are flocking to cosmetic surgeons for chin enhancements, blepharoplasty, liposuction, abdominoplasty and many more procedures.
Why The Sudden Increase?
There are a variety of reasons for the sudden upswing in men having cosmetic surgery. Men now face the same issues with ageism which once only plagued women. Men feel a greater pressure to fit in with younger and more energetic competitors in their industry and hope to advance their career.
The stigma surrounding cosmetic surgery has been obliterated so no one feels ‘ashamed’ to have ‘some work done’. This alone has opened the doors to a huge increase in cosmetic surgical procedures around the world. Finally, clinics such as the Naravee Aesthetic Center in Thailand make cosmetic surgery affordable despite using world class facilities and surgeons.
