Why More Guys Are Seeking Out Plastic Surgery

If you thought that Board Certified Plastic Surgeons like Dr. Dean Kleto in Knoxville only busied themselves with breast augmentation surgeries, think again:

Male cosmetic surgery procedures have grown by 43 percent in the last five years, according to industry research.

The top two reasons that men are thought to be seeking out cosmetic surgery procedures include:

  • Getting ahead in their profession
  • A desire to look and feel their best

The average age of men who seek out plastic surgery is 45, according to recent statistics compiled by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

“There is a new way of thinking when it comes to anti-aging,” one man who’s a fan of BOTOX Cosmetic injections told the cosmetic surgery trade publication SmartBeautyGuide.com. “It is not just about the big facelift, it is also about the minor touch-ups throughout your decades.”

The man concluded that BOTOX treatments have enabled him to see “a refreshed version” of himself.

The same ASAPS research that showed an uptick in men seeking plastic surgery also pinpointed the five most popular plastic surgery procedures overall among male and female patients combined. They are:

  • Liposuction
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Eye Surgery
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Nose Surgery
