There was a time when cosmetic surgery was assumed to be something only women were interested in. Those days have long gone!
Increasing numbers of men are seeking help from professional and trustworthy cosmetic surgeons to improve their appearance.
In fact, figures show that in 2013 nearly 10% of all cosmetic procedures done in the UK were performed on men – that’s a 16% increase on the year before.
I am pleased that more men feel confident about making a positive change in their lives with the help of cosmetic surgery – and I am delighted to have personally helped many male patients seeking cosmetic surgery in Bristol to achieve change.
It is true that certain procedures are particularly popular with men. These include rhinoplasty (or a ‘nose job’), eyelid surgery, chin implants, chest reduction and ear reshaping.
That’s not to say that men don’t also opt for procedures like facelifts, liposuction and botox, too.
Many men have felt insecure about a particular aspect of their appearance for many years and get to a stage in life where they decide they don’t want it to worry them anymore.
Other men still feel young at heart when the wrinkles start to show, and want to do what they can for their image to reflect how they feel inside – which is perfectly understandable.
Just like for female patients, men who come to me for cosmetic surgery in Bristol report feeling a new lease of life following their procedure.
Cosmetic surgery is now more affordable, popular and accessible than ever – and perhaps that is also part of what is influencing more men to take the plunge and seek surgery.
