Historically, plastic surgery for men accounts for only 5% of plastic surgery patients. I am lucky to have a practice that is visited by both men and women in equal part. This is no doubt due to the worldwide popularity of the Austin Gynecomastia Center as a solution for men who suffer from gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs.”
Male plastic surgery in Austin, Texas consists mostly of those seeking nose jobs, liposuction and gynecomastia treatments, with other facial plastic surgery not far behind. Chin implants, neck lifts, eye lifts and non-surgical services like Botox and fillers are common requests.
Men are considering plastic surgery for the same reasons that women do. It’s about feeling revitalized and looking how you feel so that you can enjoy your life to the fullest. The reality is that in our youthful culture, competition is real and looking the part is part of your success.
There is no longer a negative stigma associated with plastic surgery. In fact, it’s more common to question those who have not had it or have not considered it. The new age of plastic surgery is quite different from that of its early days—results are natural. Surgeons have perfected their skills in the art of “I didn’t know he had plastic surgery” plastic surgery.
In the age of the “selfie,” more men have seen themselves in unflattering pictures and have become more willing to do something about it. The primary concern is finding the right plastic surgeon who understands what they seek and who provides them with the right solution to the problem. They don’t need to look perfect, but they would like improvements that are real.
If you are a guy considering plastic surgery in Austin, Texas, you would be wise to visit Westlake Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Caridi’s experience and talent have passed the test of time.
