Popularity of Cosmetic Procedures Increases Among Men
More men are seeking cosmetic procedures, according to a recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). This rise appears to be occurring in tandem with the rise in the number of cosmetic patients seeking treatment to remain relevant and competitive in the work place, which was found in an earlier survey.
“Modern men are not trying to look like their high school yearbook photos or anything quite so drastic, but today’s male facial plastic surgery patient craves changes that allows him to look more refreshed and in the game,” said William H. Truswell, MD, president of AAFPRS.
According to the survey, eyelid procedures to look less tired increased by 73% and combined non-surgical procedures increased by 72% among men, the most common of which included Botox and fillers. The most common surgical procedures among men included rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and hair transplantation.
In addition, 56% of surgeons reported an increase in the number of patients younger than 30 years seeking cosmetic surgery or injectables.
