Cosmetic Surgery Is Now a Guy’s Thing

Till date, cosmetic surgery has been linked to women. Chasing vanity, many women have undergone plastic surgeries in order to get that perfect beauty. But it seems the trend is now changing with more and more men going in for corrective surgeries. It seems that the women are not the only ones who want that perfect beauty.

So when John Tilapa decided that he should correct his nose which looked like a door knob, he was not thinking over the top. The San Diego-based screenwriter underwent rhinoplasty two years ago in enhance his facial looks and fix a septum that had beleaguered him for almost 40 years.

In the recent years, there have been many men who have been doing the same, and it is not seen as a famine act of getting one's face fixed. In 2011, there were 9% surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the US conducted on men. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery this number has surged 121% since 1997. Although there just has been a marginal increase in the overall cosmetic surgeries being conducted in US, the number of males getting liposuction procedures and eyelid surgeries has been on a constant rise. There were nearly 41,000 lipoplasty procedures conducted on men in 2011 which is a jump of 14% whereas the eyelid surgeries performed on men saw an increase of 6% with 23,000 procedures in being done 2011.

In women, the trend of cosmetic surgeries has been limited to Botox and Restalyne, but in the case of men there is a huge surge in the surgical procedures like rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, male breast reduction and face-lifts. Cosmetic surgery, which was once termed as a taboo for men, is slowly diminishing with more and more men now chasing after vanity.
