Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery for Men & Male Plastic Surgery
More and more men are becoming interested in cosmetic surgery. After all, it can make you look more confident, attractive and youthful. Whether it’s a male rhinoplasty, male facial rejuvenation procedures, male breast reduction, anti-ageing procedures, lipo or any other cosmetic procedure, men can significantly benefit from it.
Men in Australia and across the world are reporting increasing pressure to look younger. Since 1997, the number of men getting plastic surgery has increased significantly. At my clinics in Sydney and Newcastle, I’ve seen an incredible surge in men looking for minimally invasive procedures like anti-wrinkle injections as well as traditional cosmetic surgery options like face and neck lifts as well as liposuction.
If you wish to quieten that insecure voice in your head and look fab, cosmetic surgery might be the perfect solution for you. Here are the top benefits of getting cosmetic surgery:
Seven Key Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery for Men
1. Improved Confidence
Looking good often translates into feeling good and vice versa. We all dislike a thing or two about ourselves. Whether it’s our nose, patchy skin, stubborn fat deposits in certain areas, or anything else, it can result in loss of confidence which can make people suffer bigtime. With the help of cosmetic surgery, men can quieten the insecure voice in their head and look better and more confident.
2. Better Workplace Performance
Certain studies indicate that men who look good are presented with more professional opportunities. A study done in the year 2012 on Applied Financial Economics showed that real estate agents with good looks are able to sell properties at a higher place than those with average looks. Attractive people are perceived as more active, alert and intelligent. So, fixing your looks can actually boost your work life.
Men Are Using Cosmetic Plastic Surgery to Stay Competitive at Work. Did you know that 34 per cent of the Australian population over the age of 65 are still working? More than ever, men and women alike are delaying their retirement. Of course, while they are making an active contribution to the workforce, they don’t want to be dismissed. Unfortunately, while they are a fountain of wisdom and expertise, older workers are dismissed and treated as less valuable members of the team. To keep a competitive edge and stay at the top of their game, men are increasingly turning to plastic surgery to look younger.
While there’s no official data on why men are opting to go under the knife, plastic surgeons all over Australia, the US, and Europe have been reporting similar stories. In my own experience, I’ve found a large number of men focused on looking younger to give themselves a competitive edge. It’s is especially common amongst men working in a start-up or venture capital environments as well as those working in customer-facing positions. Of course, Millennials are an essential consumer base and older people often feel- or are simply perceived to be disconnected from this group.
Moreover, our youth-obsessed culture simply views younger men as a greater asset. Appearing older can put men at a serious disadvantage in the workplace. Whether you are job hunting, attracting customers, or just looking to be seen as a powerful and relevant force in the boardroom, plastic surgery is seen by many men as a good solution.
3. Improved Mental Health
Some patients reported improvement in social anxiety after getting cosmetic surgery. If you are insecure about a particular feature, body part, it can make you feel insecure about your looks which can lead to mental health issues in some patients. With your new and improved look, there is nothing to hide.
4. Higher Income – Yes really!
We live in a world which values good looks. There are various studies that show people who are perceived as conventionally attractive earn more money than those who are perceived as average looking. If you have been working for quite a bit, you probably know the pay disparity. If you have done everything you can for your professional life, now is the time to take your looks up a notch.
5. More Attractive to your Partner
It is obvious that good looks can greatly boost your love life. It can make you appear more attractive to your partner or potential partners. Great looks can also improve your dating life if you are not in a committed relationship.
6. Improved Physical Health
While cosmetic surgery is all about improving your looks, it can also boost your physical and mental health. For instance, rhinoplasty can improve breathing along with making your nose looks fabulous. Liposuction can tone your body while simultaneously getting rid of the fat deposits; the same is the case with male breast removal surgery.
7. Look More Youthful and Energetic
Most men are not into skincare. They neglect their skin for most of their life and end up looking older than their age. With certain surgeries like facelift, eyelid lift and facial rejuvenation procedures, men can reverse the signs of ageing and look youthful and confidant.
Believe it or not, men do think about their looks – a lot! The Centre of Appearance Research at the University of the West of England conducted a study on 394 British men. Their finds were truly shocking for any woman who thinks that men just throw on some clothes and are out the door without giving their bodies a second thought. They found that 80.7% of men talk about their body image with anxiety and focus on their perceived flaws and imperfections. In comparison, 75% of women have anxiety over their body image.

Male Cosmetic Surgery FAQs – Questions about Cosmetic Surgery for Men
What is the difference between male and female facial plastic surgery procedures?
First things first, the techniques used during male and female plastic surgery are the same. However, the main difference comes in the technique. The surgery in facial faces is done to make them appear feminine. On the other hand, surgery on male faces is done to ensure a more masculine appearance. It is important to choose a board-certified surgeon for getting all the procedures done and make sure he/she is an expert in facial anatomy.
Can male plastic surgery cater to both aesthetics and practicality?
The answer is simple; yes. There are many reconstructive plastic surgeries that correct minor defects while giving you the desired look. For instance, a corrective rhinoplasty can help not only make your nose look fabulous but also help your breathing issues. Similarly, male breast reduction surgery can help not only give you a more masculine look but also help with chafing, redness and rashes. Similarly and eyelid lift surgery makes your eyes appear youthful while simultaneously correct problems with peripheral vision.
Can I look youthful without getting surgery as a male?
Of course, you can. If you don’t wish to opt for surgical procedures that have significant downtime, you can go for non-surgical procedures. Some of the best options are laser skin resurfacing, micro-needling, anti-wrinkle injections, and skin boosters. All of these methods are sure to erase a few years of your face without leading to downtime.
Will my cosmetic surgery results look natural?
While most women like to look done up when they get plastic surgery done, most men want their plastic surgery results to be unnoticeable. If you are a man concerned about this, rest assured that your results can indeed look natural provided that you choose the right plastic surgeon. During the consultation, inform the surgeon about your expectations from the surgery
Is plastic surgery safe?
One of the most common questions we get from men is that whether any kind of physical enhancement is safe for their overall health and wellbeing or not. It all comes down to the surgeon you choose. All the surgeries, cosmetic or general, possess a certain degree of risk. However, if you choose a specialist plastic surgeon, do adequate research and follow all the pre and post-operative instructions you are more likely to succeed.
Will plastic surgery improve my confidence?
If you are conscious about your looks, constantly obsess over a particular flaw on your face/body, feel uncomfortable around others due to your aesthetics, plastic surgery will help you big time. It will quieten the little voice in your head which in turn gives you more confidence. Confidence itself is a great quality to have that helps you in life.
Will medicare or health insurance help cover my male plastic surgery?
Cosmetic surgeries are considered to be elective procedures. Hence, most insurances will not pay for the surgery. However, if your aesthetic concerns are also causing physical problems such as droopy eyelids can cause issues with peripheral visions, boobs are causing chafing, skin irritation; some insurance companies might cover the surgery.
What are the Most Popular Plastic Surgery Choices for Men?
One of the most common operations that men choose is blepharoplasty, a procedure that turns back the clock by tightening up loose skin and opening up your eyes. It’s a good option for droopy eyelids as well as wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. Another common request is for a stronger jawline. As men age, the dreaded so-called turkey neck begins to appear, even for men who have maintained their weight. Face and neck lifts can be an ideal way to eliminate loose skin and excess fat to create a youthful, strong jawline.
Men of all ages have found that gynecomastia surgery can be truly transformative. Whatever your age and fitness level, excess breast fat (or “man boobs” as they are often called) can be an issue that seriously impacts your wardrobe and self-confidence. A simple and safe procedure can remove excess tissue and fat to give you the body you have always dreamt of having.
Of course, men aren’t limited to any particular types of plastic surgery. While cosmetic surgery used to be considered to be catered to women, modern men have been increasingly interested in taking charge of their looks. From anti-ageing procedures to more traditional option like liposuction and nose jobs, there is a solution out there for every issue.
