Plastic surgery is no longer just for women, and hasn't been for some time. Men are becoming more interested in their appearance, due to both personal and societal expectations, as well as opinions from coworkers and life partners. Although plastic surgery is a personal decision, one that shouldn't be considered without extensive background research and opinion from a trustedplastic surgeon, it can be the best decision a person may make in their lifetime.
In one country, more men are undergoing plastic procedures than ever before. According to the Brazilian newspaper,Estado de Sao Paulo, one man is undergoing a procedure every two minutes. This would equal an average of 31.5 operations per hour. Plastic surgery in the region has quadrupled among men in the past six years, jumping from 72,000 to 276,000.
Why is this change occurring?
The major reason why more men are having procedures performed is a cultural change, visible in many other countries as well. Most patients are between the ages of 20 and 50 and are part of the working class.The most popular procedures for men from Brazil are breast reductions, followed by liposuction and eyelid procedures.
