While many view plastic surgery as a purely female-driven industry, new statistics show an increasing number of men are seeking a range of plastic surgery procedures. According to Dr. Steinbrech of Men’s Plastic Surgery Manhattan, male plastic surgery procedures have increased 106% since 1997. In 2012, more than 1 million men sought cosmetic surgery procedures. But why are more men getting plastic surgery, and what types of procedures are they seeking? Read on to find out. Why Are More Men Getting Plastic Surgery? Dr. Steinbrech finds men are seeking plastic surgery in larger numbers for three key reasons:
- To Look Good: Many men want plastic surgery for a very simple reason – looking good. Men are becoming much more concerned about their appearance, focusing not only on their clothing and hair, but also on the appearance of their bodies overall.
- For Job Reasons: In addition to looking good, plastic surgery helps men stay on top of their game at work. Dr. Steinbrech has been treating male CEOs in increasing numbers. These men use plastic surgery to stay competitive and look younger.
- To Be Male Models: Just as plastic surgery isn’t solely intended for women, modeling isn’t, either. More men are entering the competitive industry of male modeling, and they are seeking plastic surgery to increase their chances of landing a job over another candidate.
Dr. Steinbrech has noticed that the most common candidates for male plastic surgery procedures are not only CEOs and male models, but also bodybuilders and athletic dads. What Types of Surgical Procedures Do Men Seek? The most common plastic surgery procedures amongst men include:
- Jaw Augmentation
- Rhinoplasty (nose job)
- Eyelid Surgery
- Gynecomastia (male breast reduction)
