Plastic Surgery More Popular than Ever
Since the very beginning of plastic surgery, people have used it for several different reasons. Initially, it was meant for correcting some aesthetic anomalies in people, or the ones preventing them from functioning normally. Even today, most people undergoing plastic surgery do it because they have problems with the shape of their bones, certain physical aspects, their skin and other factors.
However, plastic surgery has been used for purely aesthetic reasons for a long time as well. In the beginning, only wealthy actors and popular people were able to afford these pricey procedures, reversing their visible age, changing certain features about them by enhancing their breasts or emphasizing certain parts of their body and opting for many other types of plastic surgery, some more sensible than others.
Today however, with the constant development of technology, plastic surgery is available for everyone. This popular culture, originating from the Western society, is nowadays being heavily practiced all around the world, even in the most conservative European and Asian countries. Also, in America, there seems to be an ever-increasing number of Hispanics and African-American people undergoing these procedures as well.
Stereotypically, people would think that women are the most common visitors appointing procedures at plastic surgeon offices. However, this has changed as well, as more and more men use plastic surgery for aesthetic purposes nowadays.
Men and Plastic Surgery
Nowadays, Botox, laser surgeries, nose jobs and many other procedures are done on men on a daily basis, especially in Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego and some other cities. Before, it was believed that males only need to take shower and brush their teeth, being attractive and beautiful enough as it is. Now, with the excess of male grooming culture, this was taken to a completely new level with plastic surgery.
One of the most popular procedures that men undergo is wrinkle reduction with Botox and other fillers. Nose jobs come second followed by male breast removal, ear pinning, chin augmentation, penis enlargement, laser hair removal, liposuction and others.
Still, even men should not neglect the possible dangers of the procedures. They are warned that, for example, for every rhinoplasty (nose job) there are 25% chances of infection. Also, healing processes may be more complicated for some people than for the others. Thus, do not go into plastic surgery lightly. Rather, think about it, question all there is to be questioned and, only when you have got your answers, take your pick.
