Plastic Surgery for Men

Plastic surgery procedures for men - both surgical and non-invasive - increased a whopping 88 percent over the past 13 years with men now having more than 750,000 procedures a year, about eight percent of the U.S. total, according to Grant Stevens, M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Stevens is a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of Marina Plastic Surgery (http://www.marinaplastucsurgery.com) in Marina Del Rey, CA. The procedures most often cited for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), eyelid surgery, breast reduction to treat enlarged male breasts and cosmetic ear surgery. Americans spend nearly $10.7 billion in 2010 on plastic surgery.
Dr. Stevens referenced the recent study commissioned by American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery saying, "Men wear their resumes on their faces, so I was not surprised to see the study statistics for men. My own practice has grown considerably as men seek procedures to look younger. They want to keep their jobs, get a job after being laid off or just want to look younger and more rested." BOTOX® and other fillers were far and away the most requested non-surgical procedure rising by about 10 percent.
"Laser procedures, including laser hair removal, as well as chemical peels are also popular and getting more so for men," Dr. Stevens said. He added that while the affluent male baby boomer population seeks plastic surgery to help them look as youthful as possible, the variety of people asking for procedures range from businessmen and actors to mechanics and construction workers.
