Men’s Plastic Surgery Rate Rises, Dr. Wigoda Reports

Real men get plastic surgery and it is socially acceptable, experts say. Dr. Wigoda previously reported about the rise of plastic surgery in 2010 and the predicted uptick continuing through 2011. Now it appears that men are helping the trend, according to new data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Men underwent more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures in 2010, accounting for 9.9% of all cosmetic procedures, or a 2% increase from 2009. The most commonly performed procedures? Facelifts, up 14% and nose jobs, 64,000 total, saw the biggest gains.

Other top male cosmetic procedures include eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reductions and hair transplants.

Experts attribute the increase in male plastic surgery to a few different factors; namely, the lagging job market and the increase of celebrity culture.

“Men have a new attitude toward cosmetic surgery than what we’ve seen historically,” Dr. Phil Haeck, ASPS president and a board-certified plastic surgeon, told AOL’s WalletPop. “Many stashed away some cash during the recession so they could come out of it with a younger look, ready to attack the job market.”

“In our culture, younger is better,” says Ann McMahon, a clinical psychologist based in New York City. “The ‘man’s man’ is also seeing celebrities undergo various procedures, so it’s become more socially acceptable.”

Some topics covered include: Shopping around for a good plastic surgeon, checking the background of a doctor and a surgery center, questions to ask the doctor beforehand, typical costs for various procedures, tricks and traps in advertised prices, what to look for in the contract, safety issues and risks of surgery, getting medical clearance from an independent physician in advance, realistic expectations for the results and what to do if something goes wrong.

Dr. Paul Wigoda Reviews Joan Rivers’ Plastic Surgery

Legendary comedian, TV personality and “Fashion Police” host Joan Rivers is known for her brash personality, strong New York dialect – and equally bold plastic surgery procedures.

Lifts Lead the 2016 plastic surgery List,

In this video, Dr. Wigoda describes Rivers’ various cosmetic surgery procedures through the years, from the 1980s to present.

Dr. Wigoda’s advice to Rivers, not surprisingly, is to ease up on the plastic surgery procedures a bit: “I would definitely stop all surgical procedures on her. I think she can continue with Botox…her lips look fine, I might fill in her nasal labial folds a little bit. I definitely wouldn’t do anything to her cheeks, other than possibly take out a little of the fat.”

Dr. Wigoda’s Opinion: Botox and Muscle Loss

Have you heard about the New York Daily News article that claims Botox injections may cause muscle loss?

Not to worry, says board-certified plastic surgeon Paul Wigoda MD. In a video on his YouTube Channel, Dr. Wigoda dispels the rumors, saying, “I’ve been [administering Botox] for 11 or 12 years; I have hundreds of patients who are very happy.

Hurting Less: Dr. Paul Wigoda’s Breast Implants are Painless, Patients Say

Bargain basement-priced breast implants can be painful, dangerous and in the long run cost more time, money and risk, says Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda. Dr. Wigoda blends surgical technique, experience and precision to eliminate pain, promote recovery and produce lasting Fort Lauderdale breast augmentation results

 

Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 16, 2010 – Dr. Paul Wigoda’s plastic surgery patients are hurting less. Even as plastic surgery spending slumped again in 2009, breast augmentation remained the most popular surgical procedure for American women with over 300,000 procedures nationwide.

And as the tough economic times persist, price conscious consumers and patients are shopping for the best surgical techniques and least amount of pain, according to board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wigoda.

“Combining knowledge, skill and personal care is vital to reducing post-surgical inflammation, promoting fast recovery and ensuring patients’ happiness with every Fort Lauderdale breast augmentation procedure,” Dr. Wigoda said.

In a market where many other surgeons are offering bargain breast augmentation procedures, these surgeries are often accompanied by a prolonged and painful recovery, additional missed time from work and poor results.

“Patients who choose a surgeon based purely on price without considering certification, training and experience may be making a costly mistake,” Wigoda said. “The first operation is the patient’s best opportunity for a quality result. Placing yourself in the capable hands of an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon is the first step to the quality you deserve.”

The Aesthetics Institute continues to give South Florida patients what they are looking for as Dr. Wigoda has developed a technique to eliminate pain from breast augmentation procedures.

“Breast augmentation was a dream that I always had,” said recent Dr. Wigoda patient Karen Vidal. “The same day of the procedure I was able to go home and move around without pain. On a scale of one to ten, I rate my level of pain at one and Dr. Wigoda at ten and a half!”

Dr. Wigoda uses over a decade of South Florida plastic surgery experience to blend the methods of other top cosmetic surgeons, perfect his own technique and match the correct incision, implant and procedure to every individual patient.

“The most uncomfortable experience of my procedure was having to sleep on my back for a couple of days,”  Vidal said. “Other than that, I was pain free.”

Dr. Wigoda and the Future of Plastic Surgery in 2010 and Beyond

Wondering what to expect in Botox, breast implants, dermal fillers and non-surgical improvements in 2010 and beyond?

Last week I posted a review of Fort Lauderdale plastic surgery over the previous decade. We talked about how liposuction, Botox, breast augmentation and dermal fillers have evolved and become very popular over the past 10 years.

As a board certified plastic surgeon, I receive questions all the time about the “latest and greatest” procedures South Florida can look forward to in the coming years.

Check out my video below for the changes I am expecting in both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures including:

The medical field is always in search of less invasive procedures that allow for quicker recovery times and comparable results. While many South Florida plastic surgeons are already advertising non-invasive tummy tucks or face lifts, the technology has not yet arrived and consumers need to be careful to understand the procedures they are actually having.
