In an unusual alternative to a romantic Valentine’s date, more and more couples are flocking to the surgical clinics together in order to have tandem elective cosmetic treatments. While this may seem like a strange way to celebrate your anniversary, many couples are viewing it as a way to stay young together.
“One of the biggest contributors to this trend is the increase in elective cosmetic surgery for men,” states Dr. Eichenberg from The Plastic Surgery Center in Temecula and Murrieta. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported a 2 percent increase in procedures for men from 2009 to 2010.
One of the contributing factors to the increase in popularity with men may be the increase in workplace competition. Older employees with more experience are being edged out by younger co-workers that are viewed as fresher and more vigorous. In an attempt to avoid job loss in the midst of a difficult economy, many men find that looking younger helps them keep their job longer.
“We are excited to see more men in our clinic,” Dr. Eichenberg says. “And we have a number of treatments that have been developed just for them.”
So, next time you are wondering what to get your loved one for that golden anniversary, consider an elective cosmetic procedure that will help make him or her feel as young as the day you met. Murrieta and Temecula cosmetic surgery is available for men and women looking for a simple nip and tuck or even something more dramatic.
