The world of beauty has been changing! Looking good is no longer just the domain of women. Today’s men are serious about diet, exercise, and feeling their best. While plastic surgery used to be just a woman’s domain, men these days are clamouring for a change.
Men in Hollywood are leading the trend of male plastic surgery and, like so often, the rest of the world is following suit. From San Francisco to Sydney, plastic surgeons around the world are seeing more men than ever before.
Are you a guy looking to turn back the clock? Slim down? Here’s what you need to know about the male plastic surgery trends.
Just in the period from 2011 to 2015, the number of men getting procedures has increased by more than 50 per cent. In Sydney and around the world, many cosmetic surgery clinics now have a client base of 25 per cent more men and growing. That, however, is nothing compared to the plastic surgery trends in Hollywood.
All over Los Angeles, cosmetic surgery clinics are readapting themselves to cater to men. Many plastic surgeons are reporting a clientele that is 40 per cent male with countless Hollywood executives, actors, and athletes.
When it comes to Hollywood stars, facial cosmetic surgery is always number one. Men are looking for chiselled jawlines and younger faces. From anti-wrinkles treatments to slow the signs of ageing, dermal fillers that can restore lost volume and gloss over wrinkles are especially popular today.
When it comes to ageing, men have an advantage over women. Their skin is thicker and therefore less likely to wrinkle and sag. At the same time, however, men’s skin does not respond to fillers as well as women’s skin. While dermal fillers can be great for fine lines, men with deeper wrinkles respond better to other options like face and neck lifts.
Another incredibly popular option is body contouring, including traditional options like liposuction and modern non-surgical options like CoolSculpting, which can eliminate love handles with no downtime. Likewise, gynaecomastia correction surgery can eliminate excess male breast tissue (the dreaded so-called man boobs).
When it comes to plastic surgery, the first thing to do is to forget about trends and whatever everyone else is doing. Trends can be interesting to follow but cosmetic surgery isn’t a fashion statement. If you are thinking about making a change, forget about other people’s expectations and what’s popular. Get rid of any preconceived notions that you have and start from a fresh perspective. For guys, that often means ditching the old fashioned idea that certain procedures are for women.
When it comes to plastic surgery, there’s no one-size-fits-all fix. Every procedure is customised to each unique person and their needs. If you think that plastic surgery might be right for you, it’s time to schedule a consultation at the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery.
