A new American Society of Plastic Surgeons report reveals that over 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men last year, a 29% increase since 2000.
The largest increase was 22%, for breast reduction (gynecomastia) procedure. With more than 200,000 surgical procedures performed on men in 2018, rhinoplasty was the most popular with over 52,000 procedures. Eyelid surgery ranked second, primarily eye lifts to eliminate droopy eyelids and achieve a more youthful, toned appearance.
Similar to a “Mommy Makeover” for women, one of the fastest growing set of procedures is known as the “Daddy-Do-Over.” This consists of surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial procedures performed in a single surgery. More and more men are considering this to enhance their confidence. In today’s competitive professional environment, men feel they need to improve their physical appearance to
advance their careers and compete in the workplace.
Although men don’t go through the same physical changes as women with pregnancy and post-pregnancy, their bodies and lifestyles change. Diet and exercise patterns fluctuate, and they don’t sleep as much. Many aging men struggle to lose stubborn fat, and ultimately realize they need help, especially in their chest and abdomen areas.
More men than ever before are also getting fillers and injectables, with about 600,000 of these procedures performed on men in 2018. If men go to an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon, they can come to the office during their lunch hour for various treatments, including body sculpting, and then return to work without anyone noticing they had a treatment.
