Cosmetic surgery isn’t just for women. While women make up the largest number of cosmetic surgery patients, they aren’t the only ones seeking treatment. Now, men are more interested in looking to get the results that cosmetic surgery promises. More than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on U.S. men in 2017, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Cosmetic procedures have long been associated with women. Women have indeed made up the overwhelming majority of patients electing to tone and tighten, the number of men seeking to enhance their appearance has risen over the last twenty years. In fact, it has increased over three hundred percent since 1993. Men want to look good and get back their confidence too!
Traditionally most men have been disinterested or reluctant to pursue any kind of cosmetic treatment. But this is changing as more men are realizing that they can have non-surgical procedures that look natural and help them look younger, and are more open to having them.
Men want the work they’ve had done to be virtually inconspicuous, which is why fillers and toxins have been popular with them. They also appreciate that there is little to no downtime involved. In 2017, nearly 100,000 men had filler injections, a 99 percent increase since 2000, with a fourfold increase in Botox injections.
Over the past five years, there was a 23 percent increase in liposuction and a 12 percent increase in tummy tucks among men, and a 30 percent increase in male breast reductions, according to the society.
People who look better and younger are more successful socially, at work, and in their love life. This is just as true for men as it is for women. Call and schedule your consultation today!
