Men go more and more into the operating room. According to data provided by the Chilean Society of Plastic Surgery (SCCP), there are currently between 5,000 to 6,000 aesthetic surgery per year, a figure that has grown over the last decade. This shows that the Chileans are more open to doing this kind of surgical procedures.
With summer approaching, the preoccupation for the appearance of the body is notorious, and diets, gyms or plastic surgery are becoming a subject. Among the most demanding procedures for men this season include gynecomastia. This intervention reduces one of the major male sex complexes: increasing the volume of the pectoral region due to the increase of subcutaneous fat or, in some cases, the development of a small mammary gland. This condition can occur at any age and may be the result of hormonal changes, steroid use, heredity, obesity, or even the use of certain drugs.
Another most sought after procedure, which has become the world's third most popular cosmetic surgery, is blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. This intervention improves the appearance of the eyelids and provides more light to the eyes, through temporary hospitalization under local anesthesia and sedation with an anesthetist.
In this regard, plastic surgeon Claudio Thomas, chairman of the Chilean Society of Plastic Surgery, explained that "it is important that anyone decides to perform surgery of this type choose an accredited plastic surgeon because it requires a level of complete training in plastic surgery for an integral development to make a proper diagnosis and choose the right surgery, depending on each case, requiring an experienced plastic surgeon. "
Despite the explosive growth experienced by male operations over the past ten years, liposuction accounts for 25% of the most common male invasive treatments. This technique has been popularized because it allows for a body with a better contour, eliminating painless fat that can not be reduced by diet or exercise.
In this regard, the specialists' body emphasizes that the important thing is to be aware of the procedures that one decides to accomplish, it is essential to understand the procedures that he can do by focusing on a basic triangle, informed patient, certified surgeon and accredited clinical center.
