Dr. Lefkovits recently spoke with The National UAE while consulting and acting as visiting plastic surgeon at the BodywoRx Aesthetics clinic in Abu Dhabi. During the interview, he revealed that a large amount of referrals he receives for plastic surgery cases are from male clients. You can read the full interview at The National UAE’s site here: ‘Male patients top US plastic surgeon’s list on UAE visit.’
When asked about the most common concerns that male clients have, Dr. Lefkovits states: “Men are as vain as women. They are concerned about their nose, aging eyelids, and face and neck. They are also bothered by their stomach and waist area, as well as enlarged breasts – a condition known as gynecomastia.” He adds that men also often ask for non-surgical procedures like BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal in the facial area is especially popular with Asian and Arab men. As Dr. Lefkovits points out, keeping the facial area well-groomed is important in Middle Eastern culture, and laser hair removal can simplify this process for men, helping them streamline daily maintenance and shaving. Men also ask for laser hair removal in the back, chest, arms, eyebrows, and abdomen as well.
Dr. Lefkovits gives the following advice to men considering cosmetic surgery: “Seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in male procedures. Men have a different anatomy and expect a different surgical result that maintains their masculinity, which is why the experience of your chosen surgeon is vital.”
