Though many people assume that plastic surgery is primarily for women, the truth is that men can also see amazing results from treatments like Botox injections, eyelid surgery and more. Previously on this blog, we referenced the transformative effect of breast reduction surgery for one young man whose self-esteem had plummeted after years of bullying.
"While men still undergo fewer than 10 percent of all cosmetic procedures, they are opting for it more often, about 56 percent more often since the year 2000," according to Men's Journal. Citing figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the news outlet states that eyelid surgery and nose jobs remain the most popular surgical procedures among male clientele.
Though 10 percent may sound like a relatively low amount, keep in mind that male plastic surgery was all but unheard of in previous years. As cosmetic enhancements like liposuction and dermal fillers become even more commonplace, it's highly likely that this percentage will continue to increase.
The reasons behind this gradual shift can only be guessed at, but plastic surgeons including Dr. Sam Rizk of New York have noted that many men simply want to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside. In many cases, these individuals are just as concerned about under-eye bags and sagging skin, and finally feel empowered enough to actually voice these concerns.
