Why More Men than Ever are Considering Plastic Surgery

more men than ever are considering cosmetic procedures. Men still account for a minority of procedures overall (8%), but that number is growing at a rapid pace, with 1.3 million procedures done in 2015.

Why are more men than ever considering plastic surgery? For one, society overall is becoming less gendered, which has expanded the borders of what is acceptable. Men who would have once been interested in a cosmetic procedure but were afraid to act on it are now becoming more comfortable with the idea.

Another reason men are now more interested in cosmetic procedures is the increased interest in health and well being in the U.S. over the past decade. Many men are now embracing health and fitness, and as a part of that, want to appear younger and healthier. Even if you work out and keep up an active lifestyle, there may be some stubborn fat deposits that you may not be able to get rid of. A cosmetic procedure allows you to hit the reset button — you not only look better, but also feel better and can probably perform better in your active pursuits now that you’re not carrying around the extra weight.

The physical appearance of men can also have career benefits. Older men don’t want to be pegged as such in the workplace. Keeping a trim figure can give you an extra edge in your career by making you look and feel younger, healthier, and more capable.

For men, the most common problem areas include the abdomen, “love handles,” neckline, and chest area. These parts of the body tend to be particularly resistant to exercise and dieting as people age. Advances in cosmetic technology now result in smaller scars are left, which are nearly invisible, meaning that others don’t have to know about your procedure.
