Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Still Banned for Men?

Are cosmetic and plastic surgery still banned for men? If you analyze information from various sources about the topic of cosmetic surgery, it’s almost always targeted toward women who want to enhance their appearance. In previous decades, plastic surgery for men has been somewhat of a taboo act. However, current statistics indicate that this trend may be changing rapidly. Men are still in the minority of patients who seek cosmetic procedures. However, more men than ever before are showing an active interest in these procedures. There are a wide variety of reasons that we seem to be experiencing a lifting of the male cosmetic surgery taboo .

Below, we will discuss some of the reasons this is changing and what it might mean for male plastic surgery patients in the coming years. If you’re considering plastic surgery as a male, you’re not alone in your interest regarding these procedures.

 

Workplace Discrimination Affects Men Too

Men looking to fight age-related discrimination in the workplace are sometimes turning to cosmetic surgery. They are also turning to minimally invasive procedures such as Botox to turn back the hands of time. While we typically think of ageism and workplace discrimination based on appearance as primarily a female-centered issue, it affects men too.  As more men have high-profile careers where they remain in the public eye for extended periods of time, they too can be affected by derogatory remarks or even demotions related to showing signs of aging. Botox injections and other cosmetic enhancing procedures are being sought out by men who want to remain competitive in the workplace.

 

Men are Now Retiring at Later Ages

While plastic surgery icontinues to be a primarily female-centered arena, a growing portion of the male population are not ashamed to say they’re interested in these procedures too. Part of the reason for some men is that they plan to retire at a much older age than their past generations. By continuing to work much later in life, some men feel an increased need to counteract the signs of aging.

 

Men Display Growing Interest in Cosmetic Procedures

Since 2010, there’s been an almost 20% increase in the number of men who have shown an interest in Facelift Procedures . It appears that men view these procedures in much the same light as going to the gym or consuming a healthy diet. It’s all about men’s growing interest in taking care of themselves in a physical sense. Which leads to the desire of maintaining a youthful appearance for a longer period of time. Simply put, the aesthetic desires of men are really not that different from those of women. Men want to feel good in their own skin and be accepted based on their outward appearance. Both men and women alike appreciate feeling young and attractive in a strictly physical sense.

Cosmetic Procedures are More Socially Acceptable Today

Whether we are referring to men or women, the fact of the matter is that cosmetic procedures simply aren’t frowned upon to the degree that they used to be in the recent past. Part of this is likely due to the influence of Hollywood stars. They have been open and honest about their own cosmetic procedures. And what these procedures have done to enhance their lives. In times past, a patient would undergo a cosmetic procedure and hide away until healing had taken place. Thanks to advancements, patients can now go in for their procedure in the morning and be out in the evening.

Statistics indicate that almost 10% of cosmetic procedures performed during 2011 were completed on men. While this may seem like a low number, this figure actually demonstrates an increase of over 120% over previous years. More men are working in high-profile careers where they place a great deal of importance on their physical appearance. Additionally, men are working longer before retiring than they have in the past. Which means that they have a growing interest in procedures that can keep them looking young and fresh.

Plastic surgery has been a primarily female dominated field of interest in Europe, Sydney and most parts of the world. However, we are seeing a steady change in terms of a lessening of the taboo. As we continue seeing this exciting shift in trends, we are sure to see more men reaping the benefits of cosmetic surgical procedures.

Yes or No to Cosmetic Surgery

Have you ever considered having cosmetic surgery done or have you had any work done already? I have not had any work done but I have considered having some work done at various points in my life.

At one point in my life, I considered having some wobbly bits done up, but I keep changing my mind. I am not sure if I would ever gone ahead with cosmetic surgery, but it is something that crosses my mind quite regularly, so it may happen some day.

Some people think, anyone who has cosmetic surgery done has insecurity issues, but I disagree. I believe majority of us, especially women, have a thing or 2 they we are insecure about, but I don’t think that necessarily would drive us to have cosmetic surgery done, if we do not want it done for other reasons.

As for me, I am very happy and comfortable in my skin. I have fallen completely in love with myself but there are still some parts of me,of my body, I would love to enhance if possible. I have had some other beauty enhancement treatments done, like my teeth whitened and laser hair removal treatment on my chin. And I can see myself having top-ups of those treatments and some more later in life. I found these treatments easy to do, and I didn’t have to recover from them, I could carry on as normal, and that is very important when I have 2 very active toddlers to deal with. I can’t afford to have a procedure that would leave me off work or on bed rest. It just can’t happen for now.

Cosmetic surgery can be done on various parts of our body, with the breasts, nose, buttocks, and lips and face being the most popular features for treatment. The ears are also becoming a very popular part to have some cosmetic surgery done thanks to the innovative Earfold treatment also known as Ear Pinning, which is simply an innovative alternative treatment for those with prominent ears.

Most of us know all about cosmetic surgery, the various types, and the pros and cons of having cosmetic surgery done. I know a few people in real life that have had their breasts and lips done, and they look great. Like I said in my previous post, I think the decision to have cosmetic surgery done is a personal choice, and as long as it is an enhancement and it makes you feel better about yourself, then it is definitely worth doing, if you can afford it. Just own it!

I think people, especially women who have had some work done, are judged too harshly by the general public. There are many reasons why someone would love to have a form of surgery done, and they may not always be for the vain reasons we tend to think.

What I would say is that you need to do your research, and read up the facts about the cosmetic surgery treatment before undergoing it.

What are your thoughts on this topic? Will you ever consider having cosmetic surgery done? Have you had any work done?

So you want a bigger butt?

It looks like the whole world and their dad is suddenly talking about Kim Kardashian’s huge butt, and I can’t understand why. Her butt has been massive since she first appeared on our TV screens, so why is everyone going on and on about it?

Well, it looks like it all started from Khloe Kardashian’s comment about her sister (Kim) being her gym inspiration and having the best body ever! That comment kind of broke the internet, but Khloe’s comment was in the defense of Kim’s silly Tweet. In the now-deleted tweet, Kim wrote: ‘The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met lol #6lbsdown.’, and the internet came for her so bad.

I still don’t get what the whole noise is all about. I have watched Keeping up with the Kardashains for years (I have only just lost interest in the show because I think they have lost their mojo or I have grown up), and I know how obsessed the sisters are with their bodies. To be honest, I don’t really blame them. When you are in the limelight the way they are, you can’t be anything but perfect or the trolls would come for you so bad. Even when you are “perfect”, they still come, so I know how hard they must be working at keeping up their looks.

 

 

I also think Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are so obsessed with Kim’s features, and are out to make sure they get every one of them, especially Kylie. Kylie is beginning to look more and more like Kim by the day, and Khloe’s butt is almost as big as Kim’s now. Her butt kind of grew overnight after her public breakup with Lamar Odom, and it now looks twice as big as it was before. I wonder what she is using. She swears it is all exercise, but we know better. Just like Kylie swearing her sudden swollen lips were all lip gloss, but we know now for a fact that it is not.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with cosmetic surgery in my eyes, just own it. I am tired of women having surgery done then denying it or playing it down. It makes no sense. There is no way your ass or boobs would have grown overnight, without some form of help, so why lie/pretend?

Having said that, there are various ways to enhance our features these days, many do not even need to go under the knife if they don’t want to. There are Botox injections, pills and creams that can be used to enhance various areas of our body. One of them is the Glutimax Butt Enhancement Cream.

 

 

Now if I wanted to get a bigger butt, I would go for this Glutimax Butt Enhancement Cream, because I rather not go under the knife. I am more comfortable with a cream than a pill or surgery.

I bet these is what many of these celebrities are using too, because there is no downtime, you can use it from the comfort of your home as often as advised, without having to take time off to recover, so it can be very discreet. I think this Glutimax Butt Enhancement Cream, is a smart invention.

What do you think of all the talk about Kim Kardashian’s “natural” butt? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day.
