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.”

Plastic Surgery News from Dr. Wigoda: Cosmetic Procedures Rebounding with Economy

Paul Wigoda MD Plastic Surgery News - Cosmetic Procedure TrendsPaul Wigoda, M.D. agreed with TheAmerican Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASPS) when it predicted an uptick in elective plastic surgery procedures in 2011. New data released from the ASPS seems to reinforce the idea that increased consumer confidence in the economy translates into more plastic surgery: cosmetic procedures in 2010 jumped to 13.1 million, an increase of five percent.

The top five procedures performed in 2010:

Breast augmentation

Nose reshaping

Eyelid surgery

Liposuction

Tummy tuck

As the aging population continues to grow, so does the incidence of facelifts, as well as minimally invasive procedures such as Botox.

With nearly 11.6 million procedures in 2010, the top five minimally invasive procedures were:

BotulinumtoxintypeA

• Soft tissue fillers

• Chemical peel

• Laser hair removal

Microdermabrasion

Paul Wigoda M.D. Speaks on 2011 Plastic Surgery Trends

Paul Wigoda, M.D. comments on anticipated trends according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASPS). They’ve made a number of plastic surgery predictions for 2011, centering on increased elective procedures such as facelifts, Botox, and buttocks augmentations.

1. More facelifts as economy picks up

Dr. Wigoda agrees with this sentiment; noting that elective plastic surgery as a whole tends to happen more during better financial times.

2. Additional fillers, Botox, and Injectables

Dr. Wigoda notes that these procedures are more affordable than traditional plastic surgery, especially as more products enter the market. Also, people tend to be happy with the results and continue procedures.

3. Increase of procedures to tighten the skin post weight loss

These procedures, ranging from arm lifts to tummy tuck’s are also usually elective, not covered by insurance, says Dr. Wigoda. Therefore, as consumers’ disposable income returns, so will these surgeries.

4. Changing out breast implants

Many of Dr. Wigoda’s patients see better results with silicone implants, so he predicts that his saline patients will make the switch to painless breast implants surgery. Also, since baby boomers remain the largest age demographic in the US, they may need their implants replaced or choose to have a breast lift done.

5. More botched plastic surgery cases

“Consumers looking for a bargain on cosmetic procedures will unfortunately lead to an increase in horror stories about ‘discount injectables’ bought offshore, cosmetic medicine, and cosmetic surgical procedures performed by untrained practitioners,” predicts ASAPS. Dr. Wigoda’s advice to avoid such catastrophe? Do your homework, and ask these questions before choosing a surgeon.

6. New ways to zap fat

Consumers will increasingly seek noninvasive techniques for fat removal (freezing, zapping, lasering) as an alternative to liposuction. Dr. Wigoda does not endorse freezing or zapping fat.

7. Getting a celebrity buttocks

Dr. Wigoda acknowledges that right now, thanks to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, and Jennifer Lopez, bigger is better. This can be accomplished several ways, he says, from performing liposuction on the areas around the buttocks such as the thighs, injecting fat into the buttocks, implants, or lifts.

Dr. Wigoda and ‘Bridalplasty’: Plastic Surgery for Special Occasions

Dr. Wigoda reflects on the E! reality show ‘Bridalplasty’, giving real-world plastic surgery insight into pre-wedding procedures! He notes that while the competitive nature of the show is purely for entertainment value, it is very common to get some sort of injectables or plastic surgery before a big event, especially a wedding.


Dying to get a little nip or tuck before your big day? Dr. Wigoda recommends scheduling a surgical procedure at least three months in advance, and allowing at least a week to recover from a non-surgical procedure

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.

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.
