These days, society has associated plastic surgery with the likes of breast implants and butt lifts – but not all cosmetic enhancements have to be for women only. Now more than ever, men are turning to the benefits of plastic surgery to achieve the look they have always wanted.
One such man tells the Miami Herald that a tummy tuck was all he needed to look and feel great again. After having lost more than 50 pounds, he was stuck with a midsection that only plastic surgery could fix.
“I feel much better about the way I look. But more importantly, the weight loss leaves all that skin that you are carrying around like luggage, and I feel like a weight has been lifted from around the belly section,” said Alfaya, 42, of Miami.
According to the news source, plastic surgery was not as highly accepted for men in years’ past as it is today. Nowadays, plastic surgery is no longer shocking, whether you are male or female.
“This time around, it’s like getting a haircut,” he said. The Miami Herald reported he wasn’t shy when it came to explaining to friends and family that he had chosen to undergo the procedure.
“I’m not ashamed to say I had it done,” he said. “On the contrary, I feel like I haven’t felt in a very long time.”
The plastic surgeon who performed Pedro’s surgery says now more than ever, plastic surgery for men is common and no longer a shock.
“There’s not a day that goes by on the schedule, where you don’t see a man for something, which wasn’t true five years ago,” said the plastic surgeon. According to the Miami Herald, nearly 10 percent of the doctor’s patients are men – a number that has significantly risen over the last five years.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that nearly 14.6 million people choose to undergo some kind of cosmetic surgery procedure.
