Plastic surgery for men up 43 percent
Over $12 billion was spent in the U.S. on plastic surgery last year, according to the American Society on Plastic Surgery. A growing percentage of this, according to the group, is being spent by men, often to compete in the job market.
Many men became victims of corporate downsizing during the recent recession. Even with an improved economy and lowered unemployment, older men sometimes find it difficult to compete with younger candidates. Cosmetic surgery can provide a refreshed and more youthful appearance, enabling men to better compete in today’s job market.
According to a statement by the Society, “More men are turning to aesthetic cosmetic procedures, with dramatic increases seen in both surgical and nonsurgical options over the past five years and a 43 percent increase overall.” The organization began collecting statistical data in 1997. Since then, there has been an increase in the number of procedures performed on men of 273 percent.
Cosmetic surgery by men has continued to grow as well at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center in Denver, Colorado. The staff frequently consult with men and are able to educate them about their options so that they feel comfortable with their desired procedures and have realistic expectations about the results and recovery time.
