American Idol judge Simon Cowell

American Idol judge Simon Cowell has been aging gracefully until now and is never going to have plastic surgery when he gets older. The 47 year old Cowell believes that cosmetic surgery looks unattractive on men.”I wouldn’t have plastic surgery, it looks ridiculous on guys,” said Cowell.

Simon Cowell says that his youth regimen consists of doing exercises at home and in his office. “I’d do 100 press-ups before I get in the bath in the morning, then at work after a meeting, I’ll shut the door and do more.”

Cowell also dismissed rumors that he uses hair color to hide gray hairs. “I’d never dye my hair either. Everyone thinks I do, but I never have”, says Cowell.

It is admirable that Simon Cowell is comfortable in his skin and is looking forward to aging without any cosmetic intervention. Looking at Cowell closely, his face looks youthful, except for the crows feet from the sides of his eyes and slight under eye bags. Additionally, Simon’s forehead is astonishingly free of any wrinkles or lines, suggesting that he may condone and use non-invasive cosmetic treatments such as Botox or Restylane injections.

On the other hand, Simon has a normal aging man’s belly and man boobs which he cannot get rid of with just exercise as only going under the knife and having liposuction or male breast reduction can eliminate the breasts. Simon Cowell is apparently self-conscious about his man boobs and was recently embarrassed when a young girl did an artistic portrait of Simon Cowell with a pair of boobs. Cowell said, “What are those? What are those? Are you saying I have those? Are you? I’m not very happy.”

In medical circles, man boobs are a medical condition known as gynecomastia, which is the development of abnormally large mammary glands in males. This condition is generally the result of a hormonal imbalance, or the side effect of certain medications, obesity, and old age. For many men, the combination of natural weight gain and the aging process will lead them to develop gynecomastia at some point in their lives as in the case of Simon Cowell, Harrison Ford, and John Travolta. While gynecomastia is not a serious physical threat to health, it can lead to increased self consciousness for the person.
