Overcoming the stigma toward male plastic surgery

Plastic surgery seems to become more mainstream by the year, yet there is a huge segment of the population that may still feel that tummy tucks, dermal fillers and other procedures just aren't for them: men. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, male patients accounted for about 10 percent of the cosmetic treatments performed across the country. This may seem like a small portion, but in fact it indicates radical growth since it was almost unheard of for men to undergo a nip and tuck as recently as 10 years ago.

If you are considering male plastic surgery in Miami, one of the greatest challenges you may face is not just the potential stigma of your peers, but potentially of your plastic surgeon – especially if you want to go a bit outside the box with your procedures. Recently, online phenomenon Jedlica, the man who has undergone 128 types of plastic surgery to achieve is ideal of physical perfection, opened up about this aspect of his quest in an interview with The Huffington Post.

"It was [...] difficult to get doctors on the same page as me being a young male looking for something that was maybe a bit more feminine and definitely a bit more over-stylized [...] I think as a female, it's a little more socially accepted to have plastic surgery," he explained.

While it is the responsibility of your board-certified plastic surgeon to manage your expectations and advise you on the pros and cons of a given procedure, it is also important to find a medical professional who will respect your preferences and discretion. Dr. Christopher Craft treats his male and female patients with an unparalleled degree of personal consideration, and has specialized in breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, liposuction and more.
