Cosmetic Surgery---What Today's Men Think

Aug 18, 2007
There was a time when being macho was regarded as the ultimate sign of manhood. But the image of a metrosexual man has replaced a very rough and tough man for whom thinking about his appearance is almost blasphemous. Today's metrosexual men not only dare to experiment with their looks, they are also not ashamed to express their emotions. So just like the myth,'boys do not cry' has been busted; the myth that boys don't have to work on their appearance has been shrugged off in recent times. Thus today the cosmetic industry is flooded with men only products. In fact the well groomed appearance is a source of appreciation not only the circle of his girl friends, it is also important for his professional success as well.

To keep with this trend, today more and more men are found to explore the possibilities in the domain of cosmetic surgery. Gone are those days when cosmetic surgery was essentially associated with Hollywood stars and men engaged in show businesses in any form. Today, men with different professional backgrounds----from corporate to sports, are ready to give it a go to translate their dreams into reality.

There was a time when men's appearances were regarded as a negligible matter that was expected to be overshadowed by his success. But no longer is this so. In fact it is the successful men all round the globe that are more conscious about their image that also includes how they appear in the eyes of public. Unfortunately, there might have been certain links between the success of a man and his thinning hairline, sagging bags under his eyes, his protruding tummy and other obvious signs of age. But today's men have taken it upon themselves to defy age and cosmetic surgery has provided them the weapons to fight this battle against nature.

This changing perception among today's men has resulted in a steep increase in the men's Cosmetic surgery within a few years alone in the USA. The current trends bring out the host of amazing facts:
Nearly 9 million men in the USA have gone for cosmetic surgery in a year.
Among various procedures, Botox anti-wrinkle injection treatments were reported to be most popular.
Some statistics published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveal that 20 per cent of laser hair removal, 14 per cent of Botox injections, 15 per cent of all liposuction and eyelid surgeries, and 24 per cent of Rhinoplasty have been performed on men.
However the tend suggests that surgical cosmetic procedures among men are growing at a rate as fast as 5 per cent per year.

Every man wants to have a body as perfect as Michelangelo's David. But age robs men off their youthful body and that starts causing low self esteem among some of the men. But today's men have found out the antidote to aging and for retaining the youthful charms, more and more men are taking resort to various kinds of masculine cosmetic surgeries. In addition to very common, facelift and rhynoplasty, other popular male cosmetic surgeries are Buttock enhancement, calf and pectoral implants, breast reduction or gynecomastia, Phalloplasty or penis enhancement and abdominal etching.

Thus cosmetic surgery has become a tool in the hands of twenty first century men to achieve the perfect look and ideal body; it has become the new image booster for the men of substance who want to continue to look charismatic even when they grow older.
