In our society, having a youthful and attractive appearance can be highly beneficial, and this doesn’t only apply to women. The consensus that plastic surgery patients are all women is no longer true due to a large increase in the number of men who have undergone plastic surgery over the last few years. In fact, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men underwent almost 1 million cosmetic procedures in 2012, and male cosmetic surgery has increased over 106 percent since 1997.
The most popular surgical procedures for men in 2012 were:
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
Ear reshaping (otoplasty)
Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
Breast reduction to treat enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia)
The most common reasons men undergo plastic surgery are to improve their appearance and to stay competitive in the job market. Men often desire to look more youthful, fit, and masculine to improve many areas of their lives, and plastic surgery can help achieve these goals. Improvements in appearance can boost self-confidence, and confidence is often noticed by others and met with positive reception.* People often judge others based on their appearance, whether consciously or subconsciously. Studies have shown that more attractive people have better odds of landing a job or promotion. Men are increasingly turning to cosmetic surgery to get an edge on the competition and enhance their lives.
