Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery for Men
Plastic Surgery for Men
More and more men than ever are thinking about cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery. There are many reasons for this. Some of them probably reflect an increased awareness of cosmetic surgery among men as well as men's awareness of health care issues. It is a fact of life that men now take increasing responsibility for their own choices in taking care of themselves and one result of this is men's growing interest in plastic surgery for men.
There's another reason for why plastic surgery for men is becoming more common. The competition in the business world and the false perception that an older person is less up to date and efficient is quite prevalent. Lots of men have turned to plastic surgery in their efforts to remain young looking.
Men all across America are changing their attitude about a number of issues that seemed to be specific to women only. There's that feeling of the need to look young and full of energy even if you're well into your 40s, 50s and 60s that is leading men to re-evaluate their attitudes about physical attributes.
Statistics available show that surgery is becoming increasingly popular with modern men.
Male Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery for men can do things like create six pack abs, bulging pecs and buttock enhancements. The plastic surgery is appealing to Western quick-fix, no hassle approach to life.
There are some side effects such as costs of plastic surgery as well as health-related dangers that are associated with elective surgery. Sometimes too, unfortunately, there's a belief that plastic surgery will fix psychological problems such as self-esteem issues or confidence levels.
Men, as much as women, should evaluate their expectations before deciding on having getting plastic surgery.
Technical Differences Between Male and Female Cosmetic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery in men uses many of the same procedures as in women but because of the structure of a man's body there are many technical differences between the genders. Generally, men have thicker skin and are more hairy then women are - this, for example, means that the blood supply is greater in men. During the surgery the results may be greater risks of bleeding and the healing may be slightly slower.
There are also some problems and operations that are specifically designed for men. For example, gynecomastia (enlarged breasts), penile surgery or hair transplants are some of the cosmetic surgeries requested by men. But, all in all, in most cases the surgery is a modification of the regular cosmetic operations.
