These days, men are becoming increasingly interested in looking attractive and young — and those who are serious about enhancing their physical features are not hesitant to knock on the door of cosmetic surgery clinics.


“About 8 per cent of the 3000 clients I receive a year are men. That’s not a huge number, but if you compare that figure to the past, that’s a big increase”, Dr. Ali Adibfar, a renowned cosmetic surgeon in Canada, says.


Dr. Adibfar says that men come to him to discuss everything from top to bottom: face, chest, abdomen, legs, and even buttocks.


About half of his male clients are gay, and they often opt for surgery on their buttocks to give them a more “up-tight” look.


And don’t assume women are the only ones to have their breasts done.




Men are increasingly becoming interested in enhancing their appearance.



“Men who have noticeable breasts can have them cut and re-structured. One thing I can’t do is the beer belly, because the fat is around the organs, not underneath the skin. It’s very common among men, but it’s simply not possible.”


Dr. Adibfar, who will be giving a seminar on male plastic surgery at this weekend’s Anti-Aging Show at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, says that people should not be misguided about cosmetic surgery.


“I once had a client who came in quite depressed. It turned out that he had a body dismorphic image. I sent him to a psychologist instead.”
