Ask any plastic surgeon and they will tell you that men are now just as interested in improving their faces and bodies through cosmetic surgery as women are. Males want to look in the mirror and be pleased with the reflection they see staring back at them. They know that a plastic surgeon can help them not only change an aspect of their face or body, but can also help to improve their body image.
The types of cosmetic surgery procedures that are most popular amongst the male population include nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), hair transplantation, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), liposuction and breast reduction. Even Botox injections are becoming more sought after by men. Roughly 15 percent of the liposuction procedures and eyelid surgeries performed by plastic surgeons across the nations are done for male patients.
Male patients also flock to the offices of plastic surgeons to have cosmetic operations that will give them abs that will make women drool (known as pectoral implants) and to get enhancements for their buttocks that are not as firm or as appealing as they would like them to be.
Just as women need to have realistic expectations about cosmetic surgery, so do men. Liposuction will give you a firmer and more toned abdominal area, but it will not magically transform your life, save your marriage or help you to find a new job. There are limits to what a plastic surgeon can do for you. However if you are realistic about what the cosmetic operation you want can and cannot do for you, then you will be pleased with the successful end result of it.
The cost of male cosmetic plastic procedures varies depending upon the procedure that you wish to have and the area in which you live. It is important to shop around but you must also bear in mind that finding the best deal financially is not necessarily the best deal for you. What is most important is to consider your health, safety and well-being. You want to choose a cosmetic surgeon who is properly qualified for the operation, as well as experienced. You also want to select a plastic physician who works at a health care facility that is very good and is staffed by a skilled team of medical personnel.
The average cost of liposuction for a male patient starts at $2000 and goes up (depending upon the size of the area to be operated on). Eyelid surgery is $2,000 and up while Botox injections start around $300. A nose job will cost in the area of $3,000 while facelifts (depending on the type) can range anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000. You should sit and talk with a cosmetic surgeon about the elective cosmetic procedure that you wish to have and find out about the benefits and risks, as well as the costs before you make a final decision about whether you should have the surgery or not.
