In our culture, youth, vitality and beauty are prized possessions, and men are no exception. In the last five years, we've seen a huge boom in aesthetic surgery for men. While our practice sees a lot of women, many of our patients these days are male. It's a huge misconception that all plastic surgery patients are female.
Just look to the statistics for confirmation. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), between 1997 and 2012 alone, the number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by over 106%.
While women get plastic surgery to boost their self-confidence, look younger and slimmer, and enhance their natural assets, men usually want plastic surgery to look good and stay at the top of their game in the job market.
In today's society, especially in the modeling and entertainment industries, the better you look, the greater your chances of climbing the corporate ladder. For many men, plastic surgery is the key to career and financial success. An added bonus – it doesn't hurt their love life either.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Yuly Gorodisky has helped male patients advance in their careers through plastic surgery. Many of his patients are motivated by success, and they realize that in this marketplace, plastic surgery gives them an edge over the competition.
Which type are you?
We get different types of men who come into our office for surgery. Some are male models who are looking for jawline augmentation, or hi-def liposuction to show off their abs.
We get the bodybuilder who wants similar procedures to the male model. They often want fatty tissue removed from around the breast (Gynecomastia), defined muscles, and a big chest and big glutes.
We have men who want plastic surgery to boost their career. He's the CEO, board member, or actor. These men are at the height of their career and want to look young and confident, but they don't want to look like they've had plastic surgery. Some men want to leave a few wrinkles, since wrinkles impart wisdom and sophistication.
The CEO may have an eyelift, facelift, jawline recontouring and liposuction.
Much like the CEO, we have our share of dads or husbands who are thinking that they could use a little work. They used to look great in college and now their wives are looking younger than ever after having BOTOX, breast augmentation, a facelift or liposuction.
These men often opt for a minor eyelift, jawline recontouring, male breast reduction and jawline recontouring.
