What do you consider an investment?
There’s the obvious answer: stocks, bonds, etc. But increasing percentages of adults, especially men, are investing in themselves through cosmetic procedures. While there are a variety of reasons why more males are seeking plastic surgery, many businessmen are using Botox, chin implants and other procedures to restore youthful looks and to stave off retirement.
Some men looking into plastic surgery simply wish to improve their looks; others are fathers who want to regain their athletic figures.
There’s a third group, too: CEOs and other high-powered businessmen.
Studies show that baby boomers plan to retire at later ages than earlier generations. For those boomers, staying in the workforce longer means keeping up with their younger peers. To avoid the stigma of ‘looking old,’ men are turning to board-certified plastic surgeons, like Dr. Wooten, for procedures to keep them looking their best.
The most popular plastic surgery procedures among men are:
A Facelift can be an especially effective way to both fight aging and create a more masculine look. Facelifts are often subtle, restoring youth to a man’s face without making it obvious that he’s had any work done at all. Tighter skin results in an enhanced profile, as well as younger looks.
Drooping eyelids can make you look tired – no matter how much sleep you get. And constantly seeming exhausted makes you look much older than you feel. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a relatively minor procedure that can rejuvenate your entire face. This procedure can actually improve your field of vision, by removing excess skin drooping over your eyes.
Chin Implants may be unexpected, but they are an excellent way to balance a man’s profile for a more masculine effect. They also draw the eye away from unwanted neck fat and sagging skin, resulting in a younger and stronger look.
Gynecomastia Correction (A.K.A. Male Breast Reduction)
Overly large breasts in men can be embarrassing and cause major self-confidence issues. Gynecomastia correction surgery can be the ideal solution for this issue, especially when diet and exercise won’t work. Male breast reduction leaves small, almost unnoticeable scars, with permanent results.
The older we get, the more difficult it can be to lose weight. Liposuction isn’t a substitute for diet and exercise, but it is a targeted way for men to shed fat in areas where traditional methods aren’t totally effective.
Plastic surgery for men is becoming increasingly culturally acceptable for men of all ages. And with baby boomers working longer and living active lifestyles well past the age of 65, it can help men (as well as women) to look as young as they feel.
