Male vanity is rising and with it comes a greater interest in cosmetic surgery practices. Today, males want to look as good as their female counterparts and they know that exercise and a healthy diet is sometimes not enough to sculpt their bodies.
It is natural for people to want to look as attractive and as young as they can, for as long as they can. This new male market for aesthetic improvements is tapping into the fountain of youth and keeping surgeons in the industry as busy as ever.
Some of the cosmetic surgeries that men are interested in are the same as women, but some of the procedures are different. Males want liposuction to get rid of their bellies and love handles but for obvious reasons, they are not interested in having breast implants.
In 2012, men had almost one million cosmetic procedures, accounting for 10% of the total number of procedures. The number one procedure that men have in the United States is liposuction. The price of the operation varies depending
upon the percentage of fat that needs to be removed. It can range anywhere from $2,000 to $12,000.
A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, can be performed if a person has a deviated septum and cannot breathe properly. However in most cases, males want to modify the appearance of their noses to look better. This form of cosmetic surgery will cost in the area of $3,000 to $8,000.
Many women make their way to a surgeon’s office too get eyelid surgery to brighten up their eye area and take away the tired, worn out look. More and more men are anxious for this procedure as well. Costing between $1,800 and $3,000, this operation can help you if your eyelids are sagging and less of your eyes are showing from under the lids when they are open.
If you think that your breasts are too large and you are self-conscious about them, visit a plastic doctor’s office to discuss the male breast reduction procedure further. Once it can be established that you are a good candidate for this type of cosmetic surgery, more details about the operation and the recovery period will be disclosed. This procedure will put you back in the range of $3,000 to $6,000.
If you are losing your hair, having a hair transplant is an option if you are looking for a permanent solution for your head. The prices for this procedure vary and are dependent upon how much hair needs to be replaced.
Other enhancing procedures that are drawing the male gender into plastic surgeons’ offices include facelifts, pectoral and calf implants, chin augmentation, and ear tucks. No matter what procedure you choose to have, it’s always wise to consult with a certified surgeon first and to gather all the information you need to make an informed decision.
