More Men Getting Plastic Surgery - My9 New Jersey

More Men Getting Plastic Surgery

Posted: Updated:
New York, New York (My9NJ) - There is a new trend among wealthy Wall Street professionals who are going under the knife for plastic surgery.  Some of these procedures are done for health reasons, but many times for cosmetic purposes as well.

There has been an influx of male patients getting rhinoplasty, or a plastic surgery procedure for correcting, enhancing or reconstructing the nose. Dr. Robert Guida has an office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

He says the number of male customers has risen by almost 30%.

“My practice use to be 80% women, 20% men, and now it is about 50/50. There is definitely a lot more men for functional and cosmetic nasal surgery,” he explained.

Dr. Guida explains why he thinks there is a rise in male plastic surgery patients.

“The men are generally successful and physically fit. They want to look better if they can. Some of them are also very athletic and cannot breathe through their nose. As you get older your nose does droop, it does sort of look bigger, and it you can make it look better and function better simultaneously, it is a win-win situation,” he said.

A recent study revealed that salaries do tend to increase after having cosmetic surgery. When polled, two-thirds of the people getting the surgery said they were having the procedure to get ahead in their jobs.
