Historically, women have primarily been the ones to explore plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes.
Only in recent years have men in Michiana and all across the U.S. begun to seek plastic surgery as a proactive solution for maintaining a youthful appearance. Men have almost all of the same options as women do when it comes to plastic surgery, from facelifts to liposuction.
One theory as to the rise of plastic surgery for men revolves around the aging baby boomers discovering the confidence-boosting benefits of plastic surgery that women have long favored.
Plastic surgery has come a long way in recent years and has seen increased regulations, unifying standards, and a rise in high-quality surgeons. It seems that this may also be one of the reasons that men are becoming generally more accepting of plastic surgery for the body and face, especially those procedures which are less invasive.
Male vs. Female Plastic Surgery: What's the difference?
You may not guess that plastic surgery for men is a bit different than it is for women. This isn't based on the types of procedures performed so much as the physical differences between the male and female body. At The Centre, P.C. our surgeons have a deep understanding of the nuances of the male biology versus that of a female.
For instance, our surgeons understand that male facial skin has a much richer blood supply than a female would, which can lead to slightly more bleeding during surgery.
Obviously, men are also unique in that they can grow beards and mustaches, which can affect the outcome of facial treatments. Another major difference is that men's skin tends to retain elasticity longer than women's skin. It's also worth mentioning that fat found within the male body is typically firmer and more vascular than the fat found in a woman's body.
