New Info from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Provides Insight Into the Reasons for Plastic Surgery’s Continued Growth, Says Dr. J Plastic Surgery

Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

A May 22 article on Business Insider reveals new information from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) showing continued growth for the practice of plastic surgery. In the new study, nose shaping rhinoplasty led procedures in terms of dollars, with a mindboggling $1.1 billion spent in the United States during 2016; closely following was breast augmentation with $1.08 billion. Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., known more casually to his patients simply as Dr. J, says that the new data reflect many important societal factors, including the growing use of plastic surgery by male patients and the increased social acceptance of all procedures by all genders. Dr. J notes that, increasingly, people view plastic surgery and other procedures as simply another way to make the most of their appearance.

Among the more intriguing statistics included in the article, Dr. J notes that American men obtained 55,024 rhinoplasties and 30,958 blepharoplasty (eyelid) procedures last year as well as numerous liposuctions, facelifts, and tummy tucks. Dr. J notes that U.S. males in particular have historically been somewhat resistant to the notion of appearance-improving procedures, largely based on outmoded notions of masculinity. Dr. J notes, however, that it’s not only millennial men who are more open-minded about plastic surgery, as many of the men he sees are middle-aged and older. He notes that many of them say they are concerned with remaining relevant both professionally and socially – a growing issue for both genders as more and more people are remaining healthy and active well into their later years.

Dr. J notes, however, that what’s really going on is an overall growing public acceptance of plastic surgery. He adds that, while gossip web sites still sometimes stoke the fires of controversy around procedures with headlines about celebrities “confessing” to “accusations” of plastic surgery, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the general public believes there’s nothing to confess or accuse about. Dr. J says that more and more people are coming around to the view that plastic surgery is, at heart, not that much different from altering an individual’s wardrobe or hairstyle. He notes that, while any procedure is serious business and requires the skills of a board certified plastic surgeon, it’s a procedure that should remain open to anyone who’s ready to take a big step towards looking and feeling their very best.

Reports of More Men Turning to Facial Rejuvenation to Keep their “Edge” Underlines the Reasons for the Increasing Popularity of Procedures, says Beverly Hill Physicians

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) May 24, 2017

A May 20 article on CNBC discusses how more men are dealing with what they see as threats to their careers posed by ageism through obtaining facial procedures, most commonly injectable-based procedures such as Botox and Juvederm. Beverly Hills Physicians, a Los Angeles based health and beauty medical group, notes that the report corresponds with the increasing number of men they are seeing in their offices who are seeking out solutions that they believe will help them to stay relevant in their professional and their business lives. The firm also adds that, while such factors as the tendency to delay retirement as healthcare advances and patients’ financial needs increase, the declining stigma associated with cosmetic procedures of all types has also very definitely been a factor in their increased business.

The CNBC article gives the example of 54 year-old David, a New York investment professional, who felt that his customers preferred someone who appeared to be younger and more in-step with the latest trends, as opposed to a “wise old man” figure. Beverly Hills Physicians notes that, particularly in a highly youth-obsessed culture, and especially for both men and women in appearance conscious-Los Angeles, being perceived as somewhat younger really can make a positive difference in a great many fields. The company adds, however, that while many people still assume that people who obtain cosmetic procedures are primarily performers of one sort or another, that’s hardly the case. The clinic notes that while some of their customers do, in fact, work in the entertainment business, both behind and in front of the camera, they also come from fields as diverse as the law, government, medicine, finance, and pretty much any other area most people can think of.

Beverly Hills Physicians point out, however, that it’s not just ongoing the desire for procedures that many patients are feeling that explains the increase. They say that the rise in male procedures, from injectables to facelifts and rhinoplasty in recent years as the article states, is also largely driven by the increasing social acceptance of plastic surgeries for people of all ages and genders. While these procedures for men might have once seemed to be violating some kind of masculine taboo, the clinic says that this is simply no longer the case. BHP says that men of all ages increasingly simply view cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery as one more weapon in their professional and personal arsenal.
