Women have always made up the majority of plastic surgery patients. However, in the past few years, there has been a rapid increase in the number of men seeking plastic surgery in Baltimore and throughout the country. Leading plastic surgeons like Dr. Ronald Schuster have taken notice by offering procedures tailored to their male patients’ needs.
Here, Dr. Schuster explains the most common reasons why men seek out his services.
1. To Stay Competitive in the Workplace
Some men see plastic surgery as a tool for professional success. They believe that projecting a youthful appearance can help them succeed in the workplace and prevent problems with the signs of aging. Undergoing facelift or eyelid surgery can hide signs of aging and create a more energetic and marketable appearance, giving a man the edge he needs to land a new job, promotion or client.
2. To Regain Confidence
Sometimes a major life event like divorce or the death of a spouse motivates a man to pursue cosmetic treatment. Improving his appearance through body contouring or facial rejuvenation can provide the boost of confidence a man needs to re-enter the dating pool and meet new people.
3. To Reduce Oversized Breasts
Gynecomastia is abnormal breast enlargement in men. It is much more common than most people think. Having oversized, feminine-looking breasts can rob a man of his self-image and self-esteem. Male breast reduction, which is one of the fastest-growing plastic surgery procedures, removes excess fat and tissue and gives the chest a firmer and flatter contour. Dr. Schuster specializes in performing this correction using the Lateral Pull Through technique, which leaves the least amount of visible scars.
4. To Get Rid of Middle-age Bulge and Effects of Menopause
Middle age does not only affect women. As men get older their hormones change as well. Testosterone, along with other hormones decrease. This causes weight gain and changes in the skin. These changes can persist even with diet and exercise. Fortunately, there are a lot of non-surgical as well as surgical treatments that are now available to help men as well.
