We live in a world that puts so much pressure on everyone to meet unrealistic standards. However, when it comes to beauty, women seem to be hit harder than men. Rail-thin models with large, beautiful breasts and perfect dimples and noses portray an ideal that is impossible for most women. And the invention of photoshop didn’t help at all. It’s no wonder that the world of plastic surgery has been growing in the past few decades.
Breast implants, vaginal rejuvenation, tummy tucks, full-on mommy makeovers—although some of these procedures are exclusive to women, the majority of plastic surgery isn’t. And yet, it is mostly marketed toward those of the female persuasion. This feminine angle begs the question: can plastic surgery be masculine? The short answer is yes!
Get That Chiseled Look
While body practices might not be as common among men, there are some exceptions. For example, gynecomastia, or breast enlargement, is very common among men, and breast reduction surgery to treat this condition is popular—both for health and cosmetic reasons.
In addition, you can have facial work done and come out more of a man! Do you want to look more like Bradley Cooper or George Clooney? Not only can various facial reconstruction procedures help you look more like these sexy men, they have had plastic surgery themselves! Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had plastic surgery.
Common procedures for men include:
- Jaw implants
- Cheek implants
- Nose jobs
- Chin implants
Even skin tightening procedures like Botox are popular among men. Staying young and wrinkle-free isn’t just a desire that women have.
So if you’re a man who feels like his body is in need of some touching up but are worried about being seen as less of a man, there is no need to fear! Just as women have mounds of unrealistic expectations, you do too. No one can expect you to be muscular with the defined facial structure of a Greek sculpture—at least not without some help. Go against the advertising stereotypes. Plastic surgery can be for you too!
