According to businessweek.com, more men in the U.S are opting for facelifts, Botox injections, nose jobs and liposuction procedures than ever before.
A new report published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has shown that the number of cosmetic procedures among men across the pond increased by two per cent last year, compared with 2009.
The report states that more than 1.1 million cosmetic procedures were carried out on males, including both minimally invasive procedures and surgical procedures.
Dr Phillip Haeck, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said: “Men are paying more attention to their appearance.”
The increase for cosmetic surgery in men is being driven by men in their 50s and 60s. Haeck, commented: “These are really fit people who have paid a lot of attention to keeping their bodies in shape. They’re getting a turkey neck which is something exercise won’t get rid of. This generation has paid a lot of attention to how they look, and they don’t want to grow old gracefully.”
