Five things men ask for when they have cosmetic surgery
It’s no secret that male cosmetic procedures are on the rise not just here in the UK but worldwide, last year in the UK 4164 cosmetic procedures were performed on men, double the number seen a decade ago.With social media taking over our lives there has never been more pressure on women and men to look young, which results in a desire to look young, smooth out our wrinkles, plump up our pouts and redefine cheek bones. But compared to a decade ago, there is now more of a desire to look a better version of yourself as opposed to a new you, this has coined a new term; Tweaked, not tucked!
So more and more men are going under the knife for a cosmetic procedure and below you will find the 5 most commonly asked for things when men do decide to go under the knife:
Men are commonly asking for procedures that take the least amount of time to perform as well as the shortest recovery times, with non-surgical procedures outnumbering surgical by nearly 10 to 1.
Sculpting the body
Women tend to invest more money and time in treating their face whereas men are more concerned with improving their bodies with an emphasis on fat reduction, body contouring and male breast reduction.
In the late 90’s early 2000’s the emphasis was on the bigger, the better. We’ve seen the desire among women, and now that extends to men with a trend for subtle treatments that people around them can’t notice.
It’s been scientifically proven that women have a higher pain threshold, and that extends to cosmetic procedures as well, with a leading cosmetic surgeon saying: “Pain is a big difference between men and women, men ask how much a treatment hurts. They are not used to the exchange of pain for beauty, and they also have less pain tolerance.’
Youth and hair
Men opting for cosmetic procedures tend to want to look younger, healthier and more attractive, with many opting for non-surgical face lifts, skin peels and hair replacement procedures.
