Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2015
While it is true that the majority of patients that come to Beverly Hills Physicians and other plastic surgery groups around the nation are female, the number of men who are seeking procedures is constantly growing. According to an article published December 3rd by The Huffington Post, the rise in male plastic surgery is largely driven by a select few procedures that men turn to in order to keep up youthful appearances. The article lists these five procedures as liposuction, gynecomastia correction surgery, hair transplants, Botox injections, and blepharoplasty. According to Beverly Hills Physicians, this list is a relatively even mix of procedures that are considered to be solely male procedures, as well as those that are elected commonly by both men and women. They explain that it is interesting to make this distinction, especially when discussing why male plastic surgery has grown so much in popularity in recent years.
Beverly Hills Physicians explains that certainly one of the biggest reasons holding some men back from plastic surgery is that many people consider plastic surgery to be for women only. They explain that, luckily, this perception is changing rapidly as more and more men are seeing cosmetic procedures as a way to look young and stay competitive in the workplace. BHP notes that both Botox injections and blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, are some of these common procedures that men elect to look younger. Eyelid surgery, meant to remove sagging, tired-looking bags around the eyes, can make both male and female patients look much more youthful and energetic.
Liposuction, BHP adds, is a favorite amongst men who are relatively athletic, yet still want to remove stubborn pockets of fat that won’t seem to go away with diet and exercise. BHP also explains that liposuction is an integral part of gynecomastia correction surgery, which is performed to reduce the size of enlarged, feminine-looking breasts in men. However, they do note that, similar to hair transplants, gynecomastia is commonly known to be a procedure elected only by men, so men may not feel the same emasculating pressures to avoid a procedure that they may otherwise desire. Nevertheless, BHP concludes that all procedures still require the same amount of careful consideration before moving forward.
