Why are the vast majority of plastic surgeons male, and the vast majority of plastic surgery patients female? Sexist readers float their theories:
Ezequiel thinks it’s because “women are the main responsible for whatever they decide to do with their body”:
is there someone not certain that women are much more concerned since day one on their looks than men?
Is it a lie if we say that women go into surgery because men want them to?
Will men look women who doesnt have plastic surgery on their boobs and butts?
no, no, yes.
Men dont dictate fashion, nor beauty. We dictate what happens in the surgery room, even if we are bald or short, if we are the surgeons.
and women are the main responsible for whatever they decide to do with their body. That is to say. We men would love to see healthy beautyfull women who doesnt need surgery to make a point on good looks, we do not demand only plastic women, that is entirely false. Thats a common assumption simply because, healty flesh and bone beautyfull women are just hard to find, even for women.
They see plastic everywhere, jus as well as we do.
Dont blame the short bald truth. The needle is your best friend, only if your last concern is your health and your top first is what we men look for (and u also dont have a f– clue)
kza thinks that plastic surgeons are predominantly male because patients require a doctor of the opposite sex:
It might make sense that all of the surgeons are male and the patients are female. If for some reason I was going in for plastic surgery, I would want a female surgeon, not a male one. The only reason I would ever want to look good is for girls so why would I want a guy to be the one making me all pretty. He doesn’t know how to make a male beautiful (unless hes’s gay). I’d assume that a woman who gets plastic surgery is trying to appeal to males so it makes sense that a guy is the one making her beautiful.
Dan thinks that patients are predominantly female because men don’t want the predominantly male surgeons touching their asses:
When more women become plastic surgeons, more men will want plastic surgery. Isn’t it obvious? No man wants another man fixing his ass.
And noodlez thinks women are predominantly lazy:
MOST WOMEN ARE LAZY WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR BODY UNTIL ITS TOO LATE. THUS THE FAD DIETS, THE UNUSED EXERCISE EQUIPMENT AND THE NEVER USED TO ITS MAX GYM MEMBERSHIP.
THE “WANT” TO KEEP UP WITH THE VIDEO CHICK OR GLAM GIRL IS WHAT REALLY DRIVES THAT INDUSTRY. THE INNER COUGAR OF WOMEN WHO WANT TO LOOK HALF THEIR AGE IS ALSO A GOOD SOURCE OF INCOME FOR THEM AS WELL. IF THEY JUST RELIED ON REPAIRING WAR WOUNDS AND PATIENTS WHO ACTUALLY NEED IT IM SURE THE GENDER NUMBER OF SURGEONS V. PATIENTS WOULD BE A LIL MORE EQUAL.
