Plastic surgery has become synonymous with full lips and taut skin. It is also more closely associated with the female gender, and while women may go under the knife more often than men, this is slowly starting to change.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men rose almost 30 percent from 2000 – 2017. When it comes to injectables, there was just shy of 100% growth in the same time period. It was also reported that in 2018 alone, 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men.
Many plastic surgeons, including double-board certified Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon, Doctor Jean-Paul Azzi, report treating more men now than ever before. More and more, men are looking to achieve a certain look and aren’t afraid to ask for it. The stigma that used to exist when men would talk about, or get, a cosmetic procedure is seemingly gone. It is socially acceptable for a man to take control of his looks and augment his appearance…without apologizing.
Interestingly enough, the data doesn’t point towards men of a certain age group. As a matter of fact, plastic surgery procedures for men are rising across all age groups.
The aforementioned data also reveals that an increased percentage of men are also asking for eyebag and neck surgeries to help combat signs of aging. Droopy eyes and saggy necks can not only make a person look older, but it can also be uncomfortable for men to wear certain types of dress shirts depending on how far down the neck sags. While women also get neck surgeries, the skin on a man is different, thus, the surgery is different. Men’s skin actually retains elasticity longer, so the skin tends to be firmer and more vascular than women.
There’s also the growing trend of the Daddy-Do-Over for aging men with children who want to address the dreaded dad-bod. The Daddy-Do-Over, similar to the Mommy Makeover, consists of surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial procedures that can usually be performed in one surgery session, together.
