Men who receive plastic surgery are perceived to be more affectionate, trustworthy and masculine than their peers, a new study released by the JAMA network said. The study evaluates the effect of many facial cosmetic procedures including blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhinoplasty (nose work), face lift, eyebrow lift, neck lift and chin implants. social skills and reliability.
Men who have received all these procedures have achieved a higher perceived attractiveness, attractiveness, social skills and reliability. Separately, these procedures have more specific effects. The face lifting and upper blepharoplasts increase sympathy and reliability. Lower blepharoplasty made men appear more prone to risk. And raising the neck increased the perception of extrovertness and masculinity.
Men with broad faces are more likely to be perceived as unreliable, according to a 2010 study published in Psychological Science.
To determine these results, the researchers conducted a study that included before and after photos of 24 men who had suffered cosmetic products. plastic surgery between the beginning of 2009 and the end of 2016. On average, these patients were under 50 years of age. Approximately 145 individuals – most of them men – completed the study and evaluated the attractiveness of patients and perceived personality traits before and after surgery. The results reflect the results of a similar 2015 study in women. This study, conducted by the same researcher, found that women who received cosmetic surgery on the face are perceived as more affectionate, attractive and feminine.
She can call you a better job or simply make you look more enjoyable and reliable, but plastic surgery is also expensive and in some cases potentially dangerous. In 2018, Americans spent a total of $ 16.5 billion on cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally invasive procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This is 65% of approximately $ 10 billion in 2011
The individual procedures cost thousands of dollars. The average national price of blepharoplasty is slightly above $ 3,100. More expensive procedures like facelift and rhinoplasty can give you more than $ 5,000. Plastic surgery can also come with complications. This includes infection, bruising, blood loss and even nerve damage, according to Healthline. But in general, plastic surgery is safe and complications appear less than 1% of cases, according to a 2018 study that examined 25,000 cases. In the years 2000 to 2018, there was a 29% increase in men's plastic surgery procedures, according to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2018.
Men's Cosmetic Surgery Growth
Significantly increased operations include lip augmentation by 433% increase; cheek implants with a 133% increase; and rear lifts where over the past two decades there has been a huge jump of 671% for men. Rhinoplasty is the most popular procedure among men in 2018
"Just as women can turn to a set of procedures known as" Mama Makeup ", the more men take their own set of treatments," Dad-to-Nad "According to a statement by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
More and more men are adopting their own set of "dad-do-do" treatments.
"Men notice that changes in their bodies are due to aging and parenting, and it looks very different in the 30s and 40s. That's the point of Daddy-Do-Over, "says Alan Mataraso, president of the Society.
"There was a significant influx of men who received plastic surgery," said Sachin Sridharani, a plastic surgeon in New York, MarketWatch said. Procedures such as jaw surgery and chin implants can give a man a more masculine image.
Although the number of male patients in plastic surgery is increasing, women still receive far more procedures than men. In 2018, men underwent a total of about 1,300,000 cosmetic procedures. This contrasts with over 14 million procedures that women have received.

among other social media sites have played a major role in the growth of plastic surgery, Mataraso told MarketWatch. "Social media create some pressure. You are connected with so many people and you see so many people. There's pressure to look like you're having fun and looking good all the time, "Mataraso said.
In 2017, over 200,000 teens have received plastic surgery, and more teens are interested in botox. Doctors say that impeccable expressions of celebrities and influential people in social media are part of the reason for this. Mataraso also noted that social media have made plastic surgery more widespread and acceptable. The millenarians are dealing with relatives in the recovery room and sending them to their friends, he says.
"Historically, there is considerable stigma associated with plastic surgery," said Sridharani. "But society allows it now and now we know how to do men's surgery without feminising the face."
"Now we know how to do men's surgery without feminising the face."
Beyond the pressure to look good online also needs to look good at work. And those who are afraid of age discrimination when hiring can choose to go under the knife for a younger look. "People are changing their job more and demand for the best is part of the competition in the labor market," Mataraso said.
It is now common for college graduates to shift their jobs four times before age 32, according to a LinkedIn study. Twenty years ago it was typical to change positions only twice in the first decade of college.
Mataraso noted that in some industries – such as the media and young people with entertainment – is particularly important. "But there are also many people outside of Hollywood who believe they should look young to be competitive on the labor market," he said.
They may have a good reason to worry: the majority of workers aged 45 or over say they have seen or have suffered age discrimination, AARP survey 2017 reported. Some of the most common procedures among these men are eyelid surgery and botox.
The Age Discrimination Act 1967 prohibits discrimination against workers aged 40 or more. But the Supreme Court ruling of 2009 has weakened the law, according to the Human Resources Management Company (SHRM), by raising the burden of proof on workers who believe they have been unfairly treated due to their age.
Sridharani told MarketWatch that many of his clients are managers who "want to keep looking and look good." He added: "They feel great and do not want to look tired."
