Americans place high value on looking young and fit. Today, men of all ages are requesting male cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate their face, have a trimmer waistline or gain more muscle definition.
Our ideal male looks healthy and confident but not perfectly coiffed or manicured. His physique is lean and well-defined — like a swimmer — such as Ryan Reynolds. The American man wants to look well-maintained, tall, lean, agile and fit — that’s the real ideal. We are seeing more and more men come into our practice and request liposuction on their abdomen to “help out” the situation.
But it isn’t always about having that well-defined athletic look. A growing number of male baby boomers age 40 to 58 are turning to male cosmetic surgery to keep themselves looking younger. America’s youth-oriented culture is behind the trend, but so is men’s increasing comfort with admitting they care about their looks.
Botox is becoming a regular part of men’s beauty routine. Celebrities such as Simon Cowell admit to getting regular Botox injections to keep them looking their best.
Cosmetic surgery certainly isn’t something only women turn to; men are also seeking a helping hand in looking and feeling their best.
