If you’ve paid attention to the cosmetic industry over the past few years, you’d know that men continue to make up a large demographic of plastic surgery patients. Although it has historically been women who more readily pursue cosmetic treatments and surgeries, men are a growing population that are beginning to cause a unique shift in the way plastic surgeons approach their patients and surgeries alike. Here’s what to know about men and plastic surgery, as well as how Dr. Diktaban can help.

Why Are More Men Getting Plastic Surgery?

The short answer is that it’s becoming more acceptable for men to take charge of their appearances by whatever means are most available to them. There can be a multitude of factors that contribute to this this, however, so here are just a few.

More plastic surgeons specialize in men’s procedures

Like Dr. Diktaban, more plastic surgeons are offering expertise in men’s plastic surgery, not just procedures that happen to be performed on men. That’s because men’s plastic surgery includes a few unique facets like specific procedures (like gynecomastia surgery) or specific techniques used on traditional procedures (like male rhinoplasty). It’s understandable that men have different considerations when it comes to plastic surgery because of their anatomy and cosmetic goals, so plastic surgeons with a deep understanding of these considerations can be valuable.

It’s more acceptable for men to get plastic surgery

Societally, men are now more likely to feel comfortable with the idea of improving their appearances with cosmetic procedures. It can even become an investment when men are beginning to work longer and enter the dating pool later in life where they have stronger competition with younger men. It may also be likely that, with more men learning that others around them are opting for cosmetic procedures, they realize that plastic surgery is now an option for them. There’s no doubt that social media plays a huge role in this since men are being exposed to the idea of male plastic surgery more than ever before.

The Most Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

Some of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men are male breast reduction, rhinoplasty, facelift, liposuction, and eyelid surgery. Additionally, plenty of non-surgical procedures like injectables are popular with men who prefer to avoid surgery. So, whatever your goals, you can be assured that there’s options available that can be customized to you. Whether you’ve lost weight and are looking to put the finishing touches on your new body, you’re looking for a younger, fresher look; or you simply want to change features that make you feel self-conscious, you can feel comfortable doing something about it now more than ever.
