More Men Getting Plastic Surgery

Although women go under the knife in the name of beauty in larger numbers, a new report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows an increase in operations among men in 2010.

Facelifts, liposuction and Botox injections are becoming increasingly popular with men. “Why the jump in facelifts and cosmetic surgeries among men? ‘The growth in cosmetic surgical procedures for men may be a product of our aging baby boomers who are now ready to have plastic surgery,’ says Phillip Haeck, a board certified plastic surgeon and president of A.S.P.S., in a press release. He suspects aging men are catching on to what plastic surgery has to offer—a boost in confidence, even in middle to older age. For women, breast implants, nose reshaping and liposuction remained at top of the list last year.”
