Long considered the domain of women, cosmetic surgery has been gaining serious ground among men over the past decade. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that male patients underwent 204,611 plastic surgery procedures in 2014 – a figure that represents 13 percent of the total 1,568,714 performed throughout the year.
Topping the list of cosmetic surgeries most requested by men last year are:
- Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) – 54,680
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) – 29,402
- Breast reduction (gynecomastia) – 26,175
- Liposuction – 24,327
- Face lift (rhytidectomy) – 11,851
While most male patients choosing plastic surgery are older men looking to turn back time, so to speak, younger men increasingly are opting for procedures aimed at staving off the signs of aging before they take hold. Also popular among men are less invasive options including Botox and chemical peels.
