While not every man is a movie star, and men tend to be (perhaps) less self-conscious when it comes to their looks, exuding youth and masculinity in the workplace is often associated with success. While sophistication in appearance is still important to men, looking old can give others the sense that they’re over-the-hill, tired, or part of a bygone era. Youth and vigor, and the appearance of such, are important factors in man’s self-esteem, which have driven more men in the last few years to visit plastic surgeons for consultation and cosmetic work.
Fighting to Stay Competitive in the Business World
The issue of marketability extends to individual employees just as much as the services and products their companies provide, and as unfair as perhaps it is to assume that the quality of an individual’s work is related to their outward physical appearance, it does happen, especially in highly competitive industries. If two employees come in with similar resumes and work experience, the younger employee is likely to be the favored choice. On the other hand, an air of sophistication can exude confidence, experience, and knowledge. But as men lose their hair, or start to look tired around their eyes, it’s natural for employers to question their desire and motivation, which is driving men to consider plastic surgery as a way to convey a sense of vitality to their future or current employers so that they don’t get passed over for promotions or lose out on opportunities.
Different Kinds of Plastic Surgery and Their Cost
Liposuction and Related Cosmetic Surgery Treatments
Many men find themselves needing liposuction for removing excess fat in hard to reach places that are resistant to exercise. Others need to have skin removed after they have lost a great deal of weight. Men with enlarged breast tissue problems (gynecomastia) caused by hormonal changes, hereditary factors or the use of certain drugs may turn to plastic surgery for male breast reduction procedures.
Facial Surgeries and Rejuvenation
Eyelid rejuvenation is another one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for men. It consists of removing excess skin and fatty buildup around the eyes which can result in a tired or sunken look that doesn’t convey a youthful or motivated appearance. The average cost of an eyelid rejuvenation surgery is around $3000.
For younger men, chin augmentation is a popular form of plastic surgery in which a surgeon effectively enhances the projection of the chin, given the appearance of a stronger more masculine chin. The cost of a chin augmentation surgery runs around $3,000.
Rhinoplasty, or colloquially, “nose jobs”, remain a popular choice for men that aren’t comfortable with their noses.
