Whether men are answering the call of vanity or seeing plastic surgery as an investment in their health and wellbeing is unknown. What is known is that plastic surgery for men is on the rise. It’s nothing new for men to feel insecure by more youthful counterparts entering their work environment. Men from our father’s generation handled the threat (whether perceived or real) by mentoring the young buck or teaching him his place. These days it is acceptable for men to maintain their edge by having a neck lift, getting a brow lift or even a facelift. The shift in perception may be due to men seeing plastic surgery as equivalent to taking care of oneself by exercising, eating a balanced diet and not smoking. The American Association of Plastic Surgeons reported that male procedures increased about 2% in 2010. Among male patients, facelifts increased by 14%, liposuction to remove unwanted fat increased by 7%, and eyelid surgeries increased by 15%. Houston renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Eisemann, has treated numerous male patients over his 30+ year career. The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center provides male patients with options to enhance their appearance through brow lifts, eyelid lifts, rhinoplasty (nose job), facelifts, liposuction, pectoral implants, calf implants and more.
