There’s a certain perception of plastic surgery that it’s almost exclusively for women. Even us in the industry are guilty of perpetrating this sort of stereotype, as a majority of our advertising and marketing targets women who want breast enhancements, liposuction, and the typical requests from most patients. However, the truth is that many men can and do undergo a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures right here in NJ, and their numbers are increasing!
Here is an overview of the plastic surgery in NJ men have been taking advantage of:
- Laser Hair Removal – Very much targeting women in its advertising, both men and women are taking advantages of laser hair removal. With fashion trending towards well groomed, clean cut men, it’s no wonder so many are opting to shave some time off of their daily grooming routines.
- Breast Reduction – This one might come as a surprise: the number of men getting breast reduction reduction has increased by 5% since 2012. This can be attributed to an increased understanding and acceptance of male breast development, or gynecomastia.
- Injectables and Fillers – There appears to be a steady increase in men opting for injectables like Botoxand fillers such as Juvederm andRestylane. This could possibly have to do with a now aging baby boomer generation deciding to finally pull the trigger on plastic surgery options.
