In sun-soaked Miami, looking your best is a top priority for men and women alike, and now it seems like the rest of the country is catching up. Recently, a Texas-based plastic surgeon wrote a piece on the rising trend of male plastic surgery across the United States, the what may be fueling this trend.
"Men are increasingly becoming concerned about their appearance leading the 'Average Joe' to look into cosmetic options. This is great news, as men should feel confident about how they look just as much as women do," states Dr. Cameron Craven, who has observed a noticeable rise in the number of men in his waiting room.
As of 2012, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that male patients underwent 13 percent of surgical procedures, particularly nose jobs and eyelid surgery among others. They also accounted for 8 percent of non-invasive treatments like Botox.
So what do men hope to gain from these procedures? Dr. Craven explained that many of his male patients, like their female counterparts, had begun to notice the effects of aging – often heightened by years of stress. A subtle nip and tuck could help ease the appearance of forehead creases, under eye bags and sagging skin, giving them a more refreshed and vital appearance. For men, these tweaks could boast benefits professionally as well as personally, making them seem more relaxed yet virile.
