Washington: A recent study claims that more men go through plastic surgery to boost their confidence and improve physical appearance, in comparison to women.
More than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men last year alone, representing a 29 per cent increase since 2000, reported a recent study of American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Plastic surgery for men consists of surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial procedures that are typically performed in a single surgery. Due to this rising trend, plastic surgery is becoming a common Father’s Day request as more men consider a surgical assist to enhance their physique and fend off the dad bod for a while longer.
“Obviously, men don’t go through the same physical changes that women experience during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, but their lifestyle does change, which can impact their appearance. Diet and exercise patterns fluctuate, and they don’t sleep as much. Men notice their body changes due to ageing and parenting, and it starts to look completely different in their 30s and 40s. That is the point of a Daddy-Do-Over,” said, one of the researchers, Alan Matarasso.
After struggling to lose stubborn fat around his midsection, 57-year-old Scott, a restaurateur, pursued plastic surgery when diet and exercise couldn’t help him reach his goals.
“I realized I was never going to lose the weight on my own. Plastic surgery is a personal decision, but I know guys my age who have done different cosmetic procedures. I think an open dialogue about plastic surgery is becoming more acceptable, especially for men,” he said.
