When it comes to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures the desired results will usually be different for men and women. More men than ever before are having many types of plastic surgery and numerous cosmetic procedures with a 5% increase from 2011 to 2012 (ASPS 2012) and this is not surprising. The emphasis that society places on an attractive appearance and an ideal look can be very daunting. If you are a man and you have considered a cosmetic procedure or some type of plastic surgery you are not alone. This is a trend that is no longer contained to Hollywood and the acting industry.
Rhinoplasty,aka the Nose Job, which shapes and sculpts your nose, was by far the top 2012 male cosmetic surgical procedure in America according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons with over 60,000 procedures being performed. Blepharoplasty (eyebrow lift or eyelid surgery) and Breast Reduction in Men (gynaecomastia) were to follow. Cosmetic procedures may offer less drastic results but they typically have fewer considerations and little or no recovery time. Interesting to note is that Face Lifts have been on the rise in men with a 6% increase from 2011.

According to ASPS there has been a 10% increase from 2011 in dermal filler use in men!
