They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – but we’re not talking about cooking his favourite meals; instead, we’re talking about…body contouring. With more and more men taking an active interest in their looks, Cosmetic Surgeons are reporting an increase in men requesting Cosmetic Surgical procedures – with the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) noting a rise of more than 106 per cent in Male Cosmetic Surgery between 1997 and 2012.
So which procedures are proving popular amongst the male community? Rhinoplasty, Hair Restoration and Male Breast Reduction top the list for the three most commonly requested procedures.
India based Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr Mohan Thomas, says: “Depending on what phase of life they are in, they are ready for surgery. The younger folks come in for Rhinoplasty or cheek bone or chin definition and yet others for body contouring and surgical management of male breast or gynaecomastia.”
The research also uncovers the four main looks men wish to achieve through Cosmetic Surgery, which are as follows: the ‘Model’ look, the ‘Body builder’ look, the ‘Executive/CEO’ look and the ‘Cool Dad’ look.
