"What is important is that a man decides to have this surgery for himself and not for other people. If there's something you don't like about your body and it can be fixed, then why not fix it- so you can look as good as you can? As time goes on, I don't think this will still be an issue for men. I know more and more men opting for cosmetic surgery, and in the future there will be many more."

A growing number of men are attracted by the results, minimal downtime, safety, and affordability of cosmetic surgery options today. They want predictable results, well-hidden scars, minimal discomfort, minimal time away from work, and few, if any, telltale signs of surgery.
At the Swanson Center, men presently make up about 25 percent of our practice, a higher percentage than most plastic surgery practices. We recognize that many of the same considerations that are important for women are shared by men. Men are just starting to realize what cosmetic surgery has to offer them.
How do you know if cosmetic surgery is a good fit for you? Here are some of the common characteristics shared by candidates for cosmetic surgery:
It almost goes without saying that a youthful or fit appearance is a professional advantage. Numerous studies have established that attractive and youthful people have a step up in the career market.
Is it fair that society treats older people or, perhaps more accurately, older-looking people differently? No, of course not. But this is simply reality. People expect you to make the most of what you have. Just as you would hone your professional skills, honing your appearance puts you at an advantage. Those who recognize this reality reap the personal and professional rewards.
At the Swanson Center, the most common procedures for men are Botox® Cosmetic, liposuction of the abdomen and flanks, removal of extra fat under the chin (submental lipectomy), chin augmentation to provide a stronger profile, rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Male breast reduction is also a highly sought-after procedure that is growing in popularity as men learn that they don't have to live with excessive breast tissue.
