How Popular is Male Plastic Surgery?
When we think of plastic surgery, we mostly think of women having plastic surgery done to their faces, but this is no longer true anymore. Male plastic surgery in Houston is done as well. One example is a Manhattan banker in his 30s. He facial features make him look young and vibrant even while working 13 hour work days. His secret? He got neck liposuction in order to yield a more dramatic jaw-line. Now some numbers regarding plastic surgeries and their expected lifespans: Face-Lifts: 10 to 15 years, Eye-Lifts: 15 to 20 years, Liposuction: 10 to 20 years for abs and thighs, 10 to 15 years for the next, Breast Reduction: Permanent, Chin Implant: Permanent, Rhinoplasty: Permanent.
With this Manhattan banker, it was just a matter of fashion and what looks good right now. Hollywood prefers men with square and defined jawlines. However it was only a fear years ago that we preferred individuals with dainty chins (Leonardo DiCaprio, Zac Efron, Tobey Macguire, etc.).
The new realm of plastic surgery is also very exciting and rapidly expanding due to advances in modern medicine and technology. Some male facial surgeries can be done in little as 30 minutes. Instruments have gotten much smaller and that means incisions are smaller which means faster recovery times. This is known as minimally invasive surgery, which is a huge active research area.
Microliposuction can clean up the jawline in about half an hour under mild sedation. No sutures required and only minor bruising. Ultherapy is a nonsurgical face-lift procedure which uses ultrasound technology to heat the skin, causing collagen to contract and stimulating the production of newer tighter tissue. Another technology we mentioned before was cool sculpting. Cool sculpting “freezes fat”. This basically means that it targets fat cells only, no anesthetic or incisions are needed.
The only downside of these easy surgery is that well, it’s easy to get hooked on them. People can get addicted for other reasons as well, but we have all seen horrors when people absolutely spend ridiculous amounts of money on plastic surgery and then resemble an alien. It is quite possible since some men get one surgery and then are not satisfied. So they go in for another one and then another one. In business your appearance impacts your performance in the work place so some younger professionals see this as a way to move ahead in the playing field.
