With the economy starting to improve, there is a slow but sure increase in the amount of individuals seeking cosmetic enhancement, more specifically – men. No longer is a facial rejuvenating procedure or body contouring surgery just for women; male patients are making up the roster more than ever before.

With so many advances in specific procedural techniques and technology over the years, as well as the increased focus on youth, it’s no wonder why men are more interested in plastic surgery. And Father’s Day seems to have received an upgrade as well – gone are the days of giving a tie or golf attire. There was a recent report of an Atlanta Falcon’s cheerleader who gave her dad plastic surgery for Father’s Day. He will be undergoing liposuction to get rid of stubborn, excess fat in his midsection. An article states that he can’t wait to have the procedure performed and have his “spare tire” eliminated.

It is also becoming more common for women to bring their husbands along to a consultation. Not only will this provide women the support they may need, their hubbies have the opportunity to also learn which procedure is right for them. These days, men are more aware that their appearance can play a significant role in their personal and professional lives, which is why they are more open to the idea of undergoing plastic surgery. From facial injectables to surgical procedures, cosmetic plastic surgery is an increasingly popular form of rejuvenation for men.

While women may be more inclined to undergo a less invasive treatment such as a facial filler or skin resurfacing treatment, men are more prone to opt for a more dramatic choice. Furthermore, the patient’s age is also a major factor when choosing the procedure to undergo. Younger men are drawn to nose, chin, and excess fat in the “love handles” area, while older men are more likely to undergo a more extensive facial procedure to remove wrinkles and sagging skin in the neck.

So whether gifting a cosmetic procedure for Father’s Day or even during the holidays for a loved one, one thing that may be predicted: surgeons are likely to see more male patients in their office than ever before.
