The number of men turning to cosmetic surgery has continued to increase year upon year. Now, it’s become so popular, a male-only plastic surgery clinic has opened its doors in New York. So, what exactly does this male-only clinic offer and why are so many men opting to go under the knife?
Offering everything from hair transplants to penis enlargements
Situated on the Upper East Side of New York, the Club House male cosmetic surgery clinic, founded by Dr Norman Rowe, specialises in male-only procedures. Rowe claims many men can often feel alienated when they go into mixed-sex clinics. So, he decided to open up a male-only clinic to make men feel much more comfortable.
Procedures offered include male breast reduction, hair plugs and even penis enlargements procedures. It looks much like a gentleman’s club rather than a cosmetic surgery clinic, but Rowe claims business is booming.
It does highlight the growing market of male cosmetic surgery both in the US and here in the UK, but the reality is most men feel entirely comfortable going to a mixed-sex clinic. As male surgery is on the rise, clinics have started to become much more unisex in their design. So, what treatments are men choosing to have and why are more men than ever before choosing to go under the knife?
The rise in male cosmetic surgery
These days, men too feel the pressure to look good. Social media has definitely played a role in this, but there’s also the desire to look dynamic and attractive at work, and to keep up with women who have also upped their use of cosmetic surgery.
Common procedures that men choose to undergo include:
It is fantastic that there is no longer a stigma attached to men seeking cosmetic treatments. However, while it’s refreshing to see men are feeling more comfortable, it’s also worrying to know social media is causing significant issues with self-esteem and confidence.
Before undergoing any type of procedure, it’s important to think about your reasons for going under the knife. Surgery should never be taken lightly or done on a whim, so always book a male cosmetic surgery consultation and talk through your options before deciding whether or not it’s right for you.
