Cosmetic Surgery for Men

January 10, 2011 |

by Hetty Proudhonne

Normally when you hear about cosmetic surgery, the first thing that comes to mind is a woman right?

Although, women are more likely to get cosmetic surgery than men, there are a lot of men who get plastic surgery as well. There could be a number of reasons for a man who’s considering surgery.

No longer are women the ones affected by self esteem issues. Men suffer from this as well. A lot of times you may not know it because men like to keep up the appearance of being in control and confident. Showing a lack of self esteem to them means weakness, and we know how men are about this. They certainly have the right idea because once a person sees the changes cosmetic surgery can have on their appearance, they do feel somewhat of a boost of confidence.

Another reason a man may choose to have surgery may be because an accident may have left them with noticeable changes in their face, neck, chest, and other areas. A person can even become disfigured depending on how bad the accident was. No one wants to be left with horrible scars to remind them of a tragic accident, do you?

If a man feels he doesn’t need a lot of work done then he may consider getting botox injections rather than having a complete surgery. Botox is just as effective as having regular surgery and it helps diminish any signs of early aging. The cost of botox can be expensive but it can be cheaper than having surgery and it is great for people who are concerned with the after effects of surgery.

Botox is a lot quicker than having a surgery and you have fewer scars. A man who is considering botox surgery can expect to have more injections 4 months at a time to keep up the appearance, but it really depends on how they respond to the injections. This can be a disadvantage when it comes to deciding whether or not to have surgery, but I would assume that a person would rather have injections every so often rather than having frequent surgeries.

I would recommend that a person research both options before pursuing either one because both have risks, but they both can also produce good results as well. You really should know about both. Not only will you have to decide which procedure to go with but you will also have to find a doctor that you trust to perform it.
