John Tubbs says:
Today there are men who treat their appearance even much more serious that women. That’s why cosmetic surgery operations become widespread among men as well.
Do you think nip/tuck is only for women?
Think again because there are many options available for men and becoming increasingly popular in the UK.
Here are some statistics to start with:
So what are the top 3 cosmetic surgery procedures for men in the UK?
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job): This is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in men, mainly amongst the 20+ age-group. The surgery can be performed internally (inside the nose) or externally. It takes 2-3 hours.
Liposuction: This is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure among men who are in their early or mid 30’s. In 2007, almost 582 liposuction procedures were carried out on men in the UK. The total time for the surgery mostly depends on the size of the area where liposuction has to be conducted and the amount of fat taken out.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia): This is an increasingly common procedure in the UK so men should not feel in any way shy or ashamed to come forward for it. Between 2007-2008, there was a 44% increase in the UK in Male Breast Reduction operations, and a lot of men choose to combine this procedure with Liposuction. Sometimes linked to obesity, but more often simply a genetic flaw in average-sized men, this relatively simple procedure is a confidence-boosting option for image-conscious men.
