Clicking on the appropriate procedures below will bring you to previous articles about men and cosmetic surgery, from our blog. The top five most requested surgical procedures for men included:
4. Breast reduction to treat enlarged male breast: Having large male breasts, or man boobs, as they have been named, instills a man with shame and insecurity. More medically termed, “gynecomastia,” plastic surgery can remove excess tissue as well as the sense of shame, with breast reduction and liposuction.
“About half of all men today have excess localized fat and/or excess glandular tissue in one or both breasts. Gynecomastia accounts for more than 65 percent of all male breast disorders, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).”
Botox Is Now Brotox!
Dr. Stephen B. Baker, an associate professor and program director of the department of plastic surgery at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. stated, “I think the stigma of it to men has dropped,” and he added humorously, “These days, you can get it done everywhere but a gas station, and maybe in some states, even there.”
Viva La Difference!
Men and women see botox a little bit differently. Men put their own spin on style by using it to smooth a troubled brow. It is though that in men, deep brow furrows transmit a facial message of anger. Dr. Brown, as well as Dr. John Sherman, clinical assistant professor of surgery at the Weill Cornell Medical College, NYC, agree, “Most of the men, what bothers them is the forehead wrinkles and the wrinkles between the eyebrows.”
In this way men are different from women: Men ask for a particular facial detail to be smoothed with botox, but women are more likely to just get a complete makeover with botox and fillers. Men also tend to prefer Botox because the effects are temporary, lasting only three to four months, so if they hate it, there are no permanent effects.
