The number of men pursuing cosmetic enhancement has steadily increased in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. This comes as no surprise as more men are discovering the life-changing benefits of plastic surgery. In this blog post, Dr. Rob Kessler discusses some of those benefits, and why plastic surgery for men in Newport Beach has become so popular.

Self-Confidence Boost

Men, like women, are concerned about their appearance. Whether it’s premature wrinkles or unflattering flab on the stomach, arms or waist, men have trouble areas that may cause them to feel embarrassed or self-conscious. Unlike women, however, men typically do not have the ability to dramatically alter their hair style or wear makeup to conceal scars, and in today’s fast-paced world, downtime must also be kept to a minimum. Procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery can take years off a patient’s appearance, while liposuction and tummy tuck remove excess skin and fat to reveal a more flattering, smoothing contour. Improvements to appearance naturally translate to increased self-confidence. By enhancing the physical appearance, men look and feel better, as their feelings of anxiety and insecurity resolve.

More Career and Personal Opportunities

Several studies have found that the more attractive a person is, the more likely they will be given opportunities for career advancement. Other studies have found more middle-aged and older men are pursuing plastic surgery. A reason for this may be because they want to minimize the signs of aging so they can keep up with the competitive job market. Dr. Kessler’s fellowship in facial aesthetic surgery focused on minimizing the appearance of scars and avoiding displacement of the hairline. This, combined with a rapid recovery, yields a natural, youthful look with no detectability. Procedures like facelift or Botox injections can give men the extra boost of confidence they need to succeed in their career. The introduction of long lasting fillers such as Voluma make restoring a youthful facial contour easy and undetectable, especially if you are not quite ready for surgery. Treatment with these dermal fillers also gets you back to work with no downtime. Additionally, many male patients report feeling happier after plastic surgery and are more willing to try new things or open up in social settings.

Improved Physical Health

Plastic surgery offers both emotional and physical relief. It’s common for men with gynecomastia to experience painful chafing and infection due to the excess breast tissue. Male breast reduction removes the excess breast tissue and reshapes the area for a smoother, flatter physique. Not only do men feel better about their physique, they also find that exercise becomes easier and more enjoyable.
