Skittish about Swimwear? Ladies, You’re Not Alone
With summer nearly here, ladies’ magazines are filled with articles about women who are traumatised by baring it on the beach in their bathing suits. In truth, the media is getting only half the story. It turns out that men are often just as reluctant to strip down to their skivvies as their female counterparts.
Here are some results from a recent NBC Today Show/AOL Body Image survey:
- 63% said they feel like they could lose weight
- 53% don’t like having their picture taken
- 50% think about their appearance several times a day
- 44% feel uncomfortable wearing swim suits
- 41% said they worry that people judge their appearance
Surprised? We were, too. In this post, we talk more about the often over-looked topic of male body image and look at some of the ways surgical and non-surgical rejuvenation can help guys enjoy fun in the sun without self-consciousness.
What Would You Give to Have the Perfect Body?
Regardless of age, shape, or size, most of us struggle with body image. While women tend to focus on shedding extra kilos, most men want to bulk up and get more muscle tone. Their goal is to achieve an idealised masculine physique, and they’re willing to give up a lot to achieve it:
“Research from the University of the West of England found…more men than women would sacrifice at least a year of their life in exchange for a perfect body.” – Huffington Post
Fortunately, a wide range of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures make such a sacrifice unnecessary.
