People get cosmetic surgery for different reasons. For some, it is a way to make their body look on the outside like they feel on the inside. For others, it is a way to put a stop to constant teasing and bullying from others. Some may even do it to recapture the way they looked when they were younger. However, there is another big motivating factor that drives many people to go under the knife: to please their significant other.
When a person falls in love, it stands to reason that they would do whatever it takes to make the other person happy. Now, some might make the argument that they do not need to change their physical appearance because their significant other loves them for who they are, not what they look like. While that is true, physical appearance is an important aspect of any attraction. Human beings are visual creatures, and different body shapes and features appeal to different people. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that someone might be motivated to undergo cosmetic surgery to please the person they love.
At Pina Cosmetic Surgery, we have worked with patients that desired breast implants to please a man, or came to us to get a Mommy Makeover because their husband wanted to see their pre-baby body again. That said, a new trend is developing: more men are undergoing cosmetic procedures to please women.
This month alone, there have been multiple stories of men undergoing cosmetic procedures to please the women in their lives. First, there was the story of a father getting Botox injections at the urging of his daughters. Then, a story about a man that got liposuction and pectoral implants to better keep up with his wife’s active lifestyle. While these stories alone do not prove such a trend is developing, this fact does: Since 1997, the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased more than 121%.
