According to ASAPS, liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast reduction and ear surgery are the most sought after cosmetic procedures among men. Botox® and skin resurfacing are also popular especially among men who are 40 years old and above.
Why Men Want Aesthetic Procedures
A few years ago, men are more concerned about going to the gym and building muscles. Things have changed since then and most men are now concerned about their overall appearance rather than just the way their shoulders and biceps look. Note that in this very competitive society, good looks can boost ones chances of getting a better paying job so men who want to stay ahead of the competition are very keen at looking good all the time.
The fact that a lot of men tend to stay socially active through their golden years also help boost the demand for male cosmetic surgery. Botox® and skin resurfacing are especially popular among aging baby boomers.
