As reported in The New York Times, Father’s Day has now become a popular time to give dads the gift of cosmetic procedures.
In the last few years, male cosmetic procedures have become more popular, thanks to media attention and the increased visibility of male celebrities speaking out about their procedures. And cosmetic procedures can be anything from minimally invasive facial fillers and Botox injections to full face lifts or tummy tucks. Choosing something that you know is important to the recipient’s heart, or letting them choose their own procedure, can help make this Father’s Day gift a big success.
Liposuction, Tummy Tucks Popular Treatments for Fathers
According to one source interviewed by the Times, at least one cosmetic surgeon’s office “has seen requests for procedures around Father’s Day go up close to 50 percent among men; the highest level than any other time of year.” It likely helps that this holiday occurs right at the beginning of summer, when people are getting ready to be out and active in the sun all season long.
For men, as with women, the most popular cosmetic treatments are non-surgical. Botox Cosmetic injections, now the gold standard of minimally invasive wrinkle treatment, help give a more youthful appearance for a comparatively low investment. Facial fillers and skin treatments are other non-invasive temporary solutions that can easily be repeated regularly.
For those seeking a more significant adjustment, the most popular surgical options for men currently include liposuction, nose jobs, eyelid surgery and breast reductions. In 2012, nearly 10% of all cosmetic surgeries were performed on men, up from 8% just a few years before, and almost 0% a few decades ago. This trend is likely to continue, as cosmetic surgery becomes accepted and common in the United States and around the world.
