Expert discusses trends in Male Cosmetic Surgery

22 April 2015

With Cosmetic Surgery for men on the rise every year, experts are beginning to spot some trends. New York-based Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech has revealed his findings.

  • Who do men want to look most like?

It’s common for patients to bring a photo of their favourite celeb lookalike to their Cosmetic Surgery consultation. Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Brady are currently the top three celebrities men wish to look like.

  • What influences a man’s decision to have Cosmetic Surgery?

Like women, male Cosmetic Surgery patients take their time to come to a decision. However, Dr. Steinbrech explains that often, a man wakes up one day and realises that he wants to go ahead with Cosmetic Surgery. There are many reasons for this: he wants to compete with fellow colleagues to do the best at work; his relationship status has changed; he’s getting back into the dating scene and wants to be noticed.

  • Do men recover as well as women?

A man’s recovery after Cosmetic Surgery is often slightly different to that of his female counterpart – and it all comes down to reluctance to follow the aftercare guidelines prescribed by the Cosmetic Surgeon.

Dr. Steinbrech said: “I have to be on top of them during the recovery period to make sure they heal absolutely perfectly. They like to sneak off to the gym before I give them permission.”
