With each passing year, the media comments on the growing trends in the field of plastic surgery. Cosmetic treatments have grown steadily in recent years and mainstream acceptance of plastic surgery, as a means of self-improvement, is at an all-time high. While it is still too soon to say which procedures will top the list of the most popular for 2013, one thing is for sure – more men are seeking out cosmetic treatments than ever before.
With procedures like breast augmentation and tummy tucks finding their way to the top of the lists of popular cosmetic surgeries in past years, women have been the dominant consumers of plastic surgery. In recent years men have been slowly closing the gap, and 2013 will reveal a continuation of that trend.
One of the biggest procedures men are seeking out is facial rejuvenation. Procedures such as blepharoplasty, face lift, and non-surgical treatments like Botox, are among the most popular with men. What contributes to men’s desire to look younger? In short, it’s their careers.
As we become a society that is far more health conscious than ever before and medical advances add years to our lives, more and more men are working into their “twilight” years. Some men feel as though they are competing with other men who are much younger than they are, and looking the part feel like a solution to the equation. Men feel that by taking steps to have their outer appearance match the youthful energy, the combination will only further their confidence in the workplace.
This idea of matching inner feelings with the outer appearance applies to other procedures as well, such as liposuction and breast reduction. As men age, they sometimes experience unflattering changes to their bodies. Taking the steps to reshape their trouble areas boosts confidence and self-esteem. After all, feeling better about one’s self is what cosmetic treatments are all about.
