Plastic surgeries in men are increasing in the country
Men do not want to leave women and have undergone plastic surgery to look almost perfect.
This practice has increased in the last ten years in the country, because men have decided to pay more attention to their physical appearance.
This was corroborated by the plastic surgeon, Jorge Cowes, who said that Panamanians used to go more for reconstructive surgeries because of accidents and not because of aesthetic issues, as it usually happens now.
Per month this expert, who has more than 20 years in the profession, serves five men, of which two are for aesthetics. The others are for reconstruction.
“Before, it was something strange that a man will arrive for a cosmetic surgery a month later,” he said.
At one year this professional surgically intervenes 60 men, of which 25 are plastic surgeries. About 500 are women who come, usually, to perform implants of breasts, buttocks, liposuction and abdomen.
Cowes, who also belongs to the Association of Plastic Surgeons of Santo Tomás Hospital, stressed that men go to his office to have nose surgeries, liposuction, palpated, to improve their ears and for abdominal implants.
