Men are equally under pressure to achieve a certain look, hence the move towards face-smoothing, youth-enhancing surgical options. Along with the five most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, let’s take a look at the five priorities men state when seeking to tweak their appearance.
Firstly, men look for quick procedures with little downtime. This could be linked to another request, which is to look natural above all else. Men seek to augment their bodies and become a better version of themselves, rather than looking for a drastic change. Non-surgical procedures are highly popular with men
While women lean more towards treatments for the face, men prioritise treatments to achieve the perfect body. Another priority for men is a full head of hair and above all else, they want pain-free procedures. This could account for the increase in reportedly ‘pain-free’ hair replacement treatments such as Vectus.
The top five cosmetic surgery procedures for men
- Blepharoplasty (up 15% from 2015)
- Rhinoplasty (up 14%)
- Breast Reduction (up 13%)
- Liposuction (up 20%)
- Otoplasty (up 13%)
With the increase in popularity for cosmetic surgery and the promise of better results with less downtime, there is the concern that some will undergo procedures without fully understanding the potential consequences.
A botched cosmetic surgery procedure can not only be emotionally and financially damaging but also psychologically damaging. The worry is that as cosmetic surgery becomes more popular individuals will undergo major procedures without fully understanding the situation. There has already been a crackdown on cosmetic surgery advertising, but as cosmetic surgery rises in popularity, it is expected that cosmetic surgery claims will also increase.
