At Home with Chris Jessen 2018 - 7

quoting 'Dr Jessen'
a popular procedure, and with
improvements in techniques (such as
laser liposuction) and post-operative
compression garments, Mr Barabás has
seen an increase in requests for
multiple areas to be treated at once.
Men seek surgery
Increasing numbers of men seek
facial rejuvenating procedures, in
particular eyelid surgery and neck
contouring, and this trend will
continue in 2018.
Treatment to reduce 'man boobs'
(gynaecomastia) is now commonplace
and no longer a taboo subject.
Similarly, labiaplasty to reduce the
outer labia (the skin surrounding the
vulva) is discussed more openly among
female patients, who often share the
functional and aesthetic improvements
online, on websites like realself.com.
In fact, a major factor that has
increased demand for cosmetic
surgery over recent years is how easily
people can search the internet and
read up on treatments they may
be embarrassed to discuss in open
conversation with family and friends.
Websites, blogs and chat rooms -
and even the opportunity to email
surgeons directly on their homepage
- have all broken down many of the
barriers and helped to bring cosmetic
surgery to the many, not just the few.
