Men Are Seeking Plastic Surgery in Record Numbers

The days are over when men avoid the doctor's office at all costs. They may still resist going for the common cold or flu, insisting rather, to 'man up', but a new trend shows that more and more men are seeking elective plastic surgery in record numbers in what has always been a female dominated market.

In a recent survey of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the numbers of plastic surgery procedures for men are up 16% from 2002 - 2007. In 2008, the numbers rise even more:

Nose Reshaping - 75,000
Eyelid Surgery - 31,000
Liposuction - 27,000

Men are also opting for non-invasive facial rejuvenation, such as dermal fillers like Restylane, Hylaform plus and Juvaderm.

Men seem to be embracing a new reality, which the opposite sex accepted long ago: if you can look and feel younger when you look in the mirror, then why not?
