The lion’s share of cosmetic surgery procedures are performed on women, as the official statistics show. As the UK’s Daily Mail points out, a number of these are on the suggestion of the men in the women’s lives. In fact, up to a quarter of those asked said that they would like their female partners to have liposuction!
But what about men themselves? Cosmetic surgery is on its way up in the male grooming market, and it’s often about losing that exhausted, stressed out, old before your time look of today’s successful man. There are many procedures that can help – for example, neck liposuction or brow lift – and results are often dramatic. Once the initial bruising and swelling have gone down, men can expect to look younger, more relaxed and rested.
For some, it’s about a new look, and Fox News reports that conventional beauty for men is on the way out, and enhancing features to show strength appears to be on the way in. This is where the skill of a surgeon like Dr. Naderi pays off.
Rather than having a full rhinoplasty (nose job) to completely change the shape of the nose so that it reflects more traditionally good looking features, men are choosing to make minor, skilled, artful adjustments to enhance their existing nose, or balance it with other strong features. So, the nose can be trimmed back a tad, or a chin implant inserted. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 52% of chin augmentation procedures in 2012 were performed on male patients, a key illustration that men are taking their looks more seriously.
Again, it’s about subtle changes that make them look more confident and empower them to succeed. The University of Texas recently completed a study that appears to show that men who are better looking have bigger salaries, land better jobs sooner, and can even help to affect their company’s bottom line.
Small, artful changes in the hands of a skilled surgeon who respects the client’s wishes and ethnicity are better than big, overwhelming changes that can alter the way you look forever.
Arguably, the best cosmetic procedures are the ones that makes you more attractive, but otherwise go largely unnoticed!
