03 Sep Your Cosmetic Surgeon in Scottsdale
Cosmetic surgery can make a person look younger and more attractive, but recent research shows that it also helps men seem more likable, sociable, and trustworthy. Dr. Shaun Parson Plastic Surgery & Skin Center is home to the leading cosmetic surgeon in Scottsdale, and you only deserve the best when considering any type of aesthetic procedure.
Both men and women may benefit from highly skilled cosmetic surgery, but let’s spend a moment and consider the many additional benefits men may enjoy.
Benefits Of Cosmetic Surgery For Men
Georgetown University Medical Center recently published their findings in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery. According to the senior investigator, “Our findings suggest that both men and women undergoing facial cosmetic surgery can experience not only an improved perception of attractiveness but other positive changes in society’s perception of their persona.” Increasingly, men have shifted their attitudes about cosmetic surgery and “appearance maintenance,” making facial plastic surgery a relatively common indulgence. In fact, men now make up 15 – 20 percent of the cosmetic surgery market.
The study included 24 men who opted for facial cosmetic surgery, which included upper and lower eyelid surgery, neck lifts, chin implants, facelifts, and nose reshapings. The men allowed before and after photos to be shown to strangers who ranked the men’s perceived personality traits. Over 150 people in their 20s and 30s rated the photographs and had no information about the intent of the study. They were asked about extroversion, risk-seeking, trustworthiness, likeability, aggressiveness, masculinity, and attractiveness.
Chin augmentation was the only procedure that didn’t shift perceived attractiveness, personality, or masculinity. Otherwise, an upper eyelid lift increased a man’s perceived trustworthiness and likeability while a lower eyelid lift decreased their perceived odds of risk-taking. Brow lifts were linked to more extroversion and risk-taking personalities, and facelifts were connected to more trustworthiness and likeability. Neck lifts increased a man’s perceived masculinity and extroversion, whereas nose reshapings exclusively made men appear more attractive.
