Plastic Surgery for Men on the Rise

Posted June 12, 2012 by Paul M. Parker, M.D., FACS

Male plastic surgery has been on the upswing for years, even during this tight economy.  Plastic Male plastic surgerysurgery is now commonplace and becoming rapidly more acceptable for men.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), male plastic surgery has increased 121% since 1997.

“I believe as baby boomers age—both men and women—they see themselves as healthy, active and fit.  They’re unhappy when their face or body doesn’t match up with how they feel, and they want to do something about it,” explained Dr. Parker. Therefore, for those considering male plastic surgery, New Jersey based Parker Center for Plastic Surgery is the ideal location.

It has also been speculated that social media and video communication, like Skype, make your appearance readily available, allowing people to judge you by your appearance instantaneously. In a tough economy with an aging population, competition for jobs becomes more intense.  Men are feeling the pressure to look more youthful and rested, thus the increase in plastic surgery for men. New Jersey surgeon, Dr. Parker, is willing to discuss men’s options with them.

The top procedures men undergo include facelifts, otoplasty (ear pinning), BOTOX and liposuction, followed by breast reduction for men, blepharoplasty, dermabrasion, laser hair removal, and laser treatment of leg veins.

“Our male patients seeking cosmetic enhancements tend to follow national trends, with the exception that I perform more male breast reduction surgery, male rhinoplasty, and chin implants,” said Dr. Parker.

Chin implant surgery is a relatively small procedure that can have a dramatic impact on a man’s appearance.  A strong chin and jawline is seen as the ideal masculine profile and a chin implant can give men the strong look they desire.  When performing male plastic surgery, New Jersey surgeon Dr. Paul M. Parker offers a life changing experience.

Liposuction is another very popular procedure with men. Nationwide, it is the #2 cosmetic surgical procedure performed and in 2010 over 23,000 men had liposuction. It can remove stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

While all of our patients value Dr. Parker’s aesthetic of achieving a natural look with any cosmetic procedure, men are especially appreciative of this fact.  Our fully accredited and certified ambulatory surgery center, Surgiplex, LLC, not only provides the privacy our patients’ desire but also a safe, warm, relaxing and calming atmosphere.

Dr. Parker and the staff at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery know that the decision to have cosmetic surgery is intensely private and they work diligently to create a warm, caring and supportive atmosphere for all of our patients.
