How to Look Good Naked

A holiday for rejuvenating the self

Is it ‘un-manly’ to care about your appearance? We think not. It’s another one of those ‘Men are from Mars… blah blah blah’ issues, but it’s certainly important to address. As we’ve mentioned before, your mental wellbeing is heavily tied to how you feel and see yourself – so why would it be any different for a man? Men are increasingly becoming aware of their appearance and want to look and feel better in everyday life. As a result, they are turning to cosmetic and aesthetic procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that “Men’s goals include a more balanced nose, a rejuvenated face, and a trimmer waistline.”  But men aren’t only undergoing rhinoplasty or liposuction. Common treatments for men are also male breast reduction and even hair transplants for those who feel self-conscious about a receding hairline. Take Timothy, a thirty-year-old whose hairline had started to recede at the tender age of 16. He took the teasing from his friends about losing his hair good-naturedly, but of course, he could only shake it off so much. Timothy used all the latest hair products on the market that promised a full head of hair, but to no avail. When he saw one of his footie heroes, Wayne Rooney, undergo a hair transplant, Timothy started to investigate the possibility of doing something similar. After a consultation, he felt convinced that a hair transplant was the right option for him and underwent the grafting process. Now he’s feeling more confident about his hair than ever with a healthy coverage and is looking forward to not being the butt of his friend’s jokes. How do you feel about men and surgery?
