More Men Are Becoming Trophy Husbands
It’s no secret that the plastic and cosmetic surgery market is comprised overwhelmingly of women, but male cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures are on the rise. The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston has also seen an uptick in its male patients. Many men who come in are between the ages of 50 and 60, and most want to rejuvenate their facial features and get rid of the “tired” or “stressed” appearance. This can be accomplished by a brow lift, eyelid lift, or even a facelift, and the results can be dramatic shaving off 10+ years from the man’s appearance. Though men are showing an increasing level of comfort in embracing plastic and cosmetic surgery, many are still reticent to make the leap. However, it is not unusual for the younger “trophy wife” to bring her older husband into the office under the guise of seeking a procedure for herself, which she may in fact be doing. Once her husband is in the office, she will ask Dr. Eisemann to take a look and see what he can do to improve her husband’s appearance. So, this begs the question — who’s the trophy? With people living longer and remaining vital later into life, it follows that they want their youthful attitude to match their faces and bodies.
