Why are men becoming increasingly interested in plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery?
Thanks to the growing influence of male K-Pop idols South Korean men are starting to form a new perspective on beauty standards. Men are normally supposed to look filled out, angular, and strong. However, these new standards allow handsome and ‘pretty boy’ to be synonymous.
Rather than look like the strong, silent type men now have the option to mix up their look in all aspects. From skincare to style, cosmetics and physical features men do not have to stay within the realm of masculinity. The new beauty standards dictate that a man has the option to incorporate masculine and feminine features in all aspects of life.
With this growing influence, the field of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery has seen an influx of male patients. We want to make sure that male and female patients feel welcome. Below are three male patient reviews of popular cosmetic procedures from our male patients.
Patient Review of Facial Contour
Our patient Sky underwent square jaw reduction and cheekbone reduction. These facial contouring procedures are popular among men because they help to achieve the coveted ‘V’ shape. This takes the face and slims it down to an attractive shape.
Sky’s previous concerns came from how his face looked in photos and he wanted to change that. Rather than having certain parts of his face protruding and becoming prominent within his photos, he wants all of his face to be dimensional and attractive. With the procedures, Sky feels and looks like a new person. One that is more open, kind, and happier with his looks.
Patient Review of Rhinoplasty
Teddy’s procedure of choice is a rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job. This procedure helps brings a balance to the face overall. The nose is the center of the face and helps to accent other features. If the nose is perfect the rest falls into place.
According to Teddy’s personal testimony, he was not satisfied with the look of his nose or how angular his face was. With the rhinoplasty and one other facial contour procedure, Teddy sees a drastic difference. With a slimmer and kinder looking face Teddy’s career as an actor is gaining steady momentum.
Patient Review of Eyelid Surgery
Minwoo’s underwent two eyelid surgeries: double eyelid surgery and ptosis correction. The goal of both procedures is to fix the shape of the eye and have more expressive brighter eyes. With both procedures done together, Minwoo will have the appealing double eyelids while also having a better eye shape that complements his face entirely.
After the procedures, Minwoo finds that he is happiest with his side profile and new eye shape. With a slimmer face and bigger expressive eyes, Minwoo feels more confident with his looks. Not to mention he feels better when taking selfies as well as taking selfies out in public.
Our male patients hold an equal amount of importance as our female patients. When we look for the best course of action, we do not allow gender to discriminate against those results. Surgical procedures at Banobagi are for all and will always become better with the help of our patient reviews.
Do not allow gender differences to make your decision. Better yet, set up a consultation with one of our many amazing specialists and find out how positive the experience can become.
