Men and cosmetic surgery – What to ask during the consultation?

For many years now there has been a rather large stigma between men and cosmetic surgery. Some men believe that if they have any type of cosmetic surgery they will lose a part of their masculinity. But why is there this stigma? Typically men are shyer during consultations due to this which makes the consultations brief and not informative. We thought it would be useful to show you the most typical questions asked by men during their consultation!


1)     How many men get this surgery?


This is a very very common question asked by men. This is because knowing that other men do get cosmetic surgery eases men during the consultation. In any case, knowing you’re not alone is a comfort to anyone.


2)    How long do I have to wait before going back to the gym and other sports?


Most men take pride in their health and appearance so having a break from the gym can be quite daunting. Some men’s main priority is to get back to the gym as soon as possible; however, it is very important to know your surgeon’s guide time for recovery so you can stay safe and healthy.


3)    What are the risks?


Male or female it is very important to know the risks associated with the surgery. This may help you to decide if you are going ahead with the procedure. No matter which gender you are, it is important to consult with your surgeon and fully understand the risks involved prior to undertaking any surgery.


4)    What do I have to stop in order to be able to go ahead with the procedure?


This is a very important question. If someone is a smoker, on certain medications, has a health condition or drinks heavily this can affect not only the healing but also how the surgery may go. Things like smoking may affect the blood as well as how you will react. We recommend whilst in your consultation, you ask as many questions as you can to ensure you completely understand what the surgeon is saying and what will happen!
