Nearly 38% of our patients here at MyShape Lipo are men.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
Men don’t get liposuction... do they? There seems to be a social stigma that liposuction is a procedure that only women take advantage of for their “trouble areas.” The trend seems to be changing according to Trevor Schmidt PA-C, the owner and liposuction specialist at MyShape Lipo of Las Vegas.
“Nearly 38% of our patients here at MyShape Lipo are men,” says Schmidt. “They commonly treat their chest to get rid of those man boobs, but they also like to treat their abdomen and waist.”
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) announced their statistics show that liposuction is currently the most popular procedure in the United States, surpassing breast augmentation.
“The numbers do not come as a surprise,” states Jack Fisher, MD, President of ASAPS.
Men accounted for more than 1 million cosmetic procedures, which is an increase of 273% since 1997 according to ASAPS statistics. This increase in male interest has been observed at MyShape Lipo as the number of men have steadily increased in the past few years with a spike noticed in this first quarter of 2015.
“In the past men would hide the fact that they are getting liposuction, but that is slowly changing as it becomes more accepted by society,” says Trevor Schmidt PA-C. “It’s so easy and affordable these days, people can have their procedure and be back to work the next day. No one has to know.”
The most popular areas treated with men are the abdomen and waist, which is very similar to women. This makes sense as most men carry their weight around the midsection. A thinner waist not only looks better, but it can also improve breathing, decrease health issues, and increase mobility for a healthier trimmer body.
Men also tend to treat their chest as well to eliminate their “Man Boobs.” This is a problem that will lead to major confidence issues in men. They will avoid taking their shirts off in situations like public pools, water sports, beaches, etc. Many men actually wear multiple layers of shirts to hide this problem.
Another commonly treated area is the chin, which is the first thing that others see upon meeting. A double chin can hamper ambition and hold back an individual from accomplishing their goals due to embarrassment. Many men in the sales industry can attest to the importance of good presentation.
Most men don’t even realize all the things that they shy away from as they attempt to hide their insecurities. Liposuction has proven very useful in alleviating these issues and giving men back their confidence to achieve. With technological advancements, minimally invasive instruments, increased use of local anesthesia and more affordable prices, there is little holding men back from looking the way that they want to look.
