Cosmetic surgery is just for women, isn’t it?

If you think that women have a vast range of options open to them while men have to put up with what they’ve got, then you may be surprised to learn that men account for nearly 10% of the cosmetic surgery market. According to figures released by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), over four thousand men in the UK underwent some type of cosmetic surgery in 2014, meaning male cosmetic surgery is on the up.

What are the most popular procedures among men?

As fashion changes, so does the popularity of certain procedures, but the operation that has enduring popularity and regularly occupies the top spot is blepharoplasty – known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift. Bags, folds, lines and wrinkles can give a hooded and ageing appearance; by removing excess skin and fat, a skilled surgeon can restore a youthful shape to the eyelids. There is also a great demand for nose re-shaping surgery (rhinoplasty), often but not always to correct a sports-related injury, and for breast reduction to combat gynaecomastia (more commonly referred to as ‘having moobs’). Other popular procedures include liposuction, abdominoplasty, facelifts and prominent ear correction.

Will cosmetic surgery be obvious?

Mr Ghosh offers the full range of cosmetic surgery procedures for men at his Milton Keynes clinic. Male patients are often anxious to know if people will guess that they have had cosmetic surgery. When performed by a skilled surgeon with much practical experience of that procedure, cosmetic surgery can be beautiful and natural-looking. The ideal surgeon will possess both surgical skill and an artistic eye so that the results complement the patient’s natural features with all changes and enhancements being sensitively and finely made. During your Milton Keynes cosmetic surgery consultation, you will discuss the visibility of scars, whether your expectations are realistic and how much time out you need to schedule. You will also have the opportunity to look at before-and-after photos to give you a clear sense of Mr Ghosh’s work.
