Although patients tend to be women, many men choose cosmetic procedures as well. Facial rejuvenation is a common choice. As opposed to surgical options, patients are choosing minimally invasive procedures. According to a study performed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 12,000,000 men chose cosmetic procedures including hair removal, vein treatment, and skin resurfacing. The ten top procedures, and the number of male patients were listed as follows:
Botox treatments: 6,134,621
Soft Tissue Fillers: 1,970,425
Chemical peels: 1,133,821
Laser Hair Removal: 1,118,253
Laser Skin Resurfacing: 509,055
As opposed to other methods of rejuvenation, men are choosing to turn to their gaze to the plastic surgeon’s office. Perhaps this trend will increase over time, or extend to the more intensive, surgical procedures. Perhaps more men will begin choosing eyelid surgery, Rhinoplasty, or other corrective procedures as it becomes more and more prevalent in plastic surgery trends. Of male patients in the U.S many also chose to alter the aesthetic appearance of their legs. Cellulite treatment, in addition to vein removal, is a procedure chosen by male patients.
