All you have to do is take a look inside the Dubai Cosmetic Surgery clinic main lobby and your thinking will completely change. Cosmetic surgery is not only for women anymore because as evidenced in the statement above, demographics are shifting.
But this is not to say that women are taking a back seat either, they are still in the lead only that men are quickly adding up into the equation.
Men are not shamed anymore, they are simply becoming more aware of the flaws on their bodies that they would like to fix; and what is wrong with that. According to one of the patients who recently underwent a Stem Cell FUE in Dubai hair transplant surgery (it is a first in the Gulf and new at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery clinic), he doesn’t understand why he should stay with something he doesn’t like knowing he can fix it. “Why should I embrace hair loss while I know I can have a full head of hair right here at home?” he poses, noting, “Men too want to better their looks.”
He is not alone. World statistics are showing a rise in the number of men joining the cosmetic surgery in Dubai wagon. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), the leading international society for aesthetic plastic surgery, more than 23 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed worldwide in 2013.
Of the above, women had more than 20 million cosmetic procedures (87.2%) while men on the other hand had more than 3 million cosmetic procedures (12.8%). Compared to 2012, the statistics have shown an increase in the number of men having cosmetic procedures, both invasive and non-invasive. In 2012, the overall cosmetic procedures done by men stood at 9%, which compared with 2013 numbers, increased by almost 4%.
Another reason that more men are turning towards cosmetic surgery to change something about their looks is the never-ending competition in the work place. This is because as the corporate sector continues to grow at an alarming rate, the more mature guys find it a bit of a challenge to compete with the younger ones, so, according to another client at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery in Dubai, they just have these cosmetic procedures so as to look more refreshed and less tired.
Men are again being motivated by their spouses, although according to the study not much has changed in that area. But looking closer to home, at the Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, sometimes the numbers of couples who come to have procedures together outnumber the people showing up alone.
Amani, one of the patients who at most times comes with the husband, says that she usually brought him along for support and company. “But since he saw the results of the first procedure I had, he wanted to do something for himself as well. It left him happier and more revitalized,” she notes.
Although the numbers are still in their 20th percentile, they are deemed to continue rising. A nip and tuck here and there for a man is also as good as visit to the barber. So why not pay us a visit today and see what you can do about yourself?
