Top 5 Cosmetic Procedures for Men

By

HandsomeManMen in the prime of their life are seeking cosmetic surgery for both personal and professional reasons. In July, the Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank released its statistics for 2012. It is interesting to see what plastic surgeries men select. Men had nearly 1 million cosmetic procedures in the US, 10% of the total. The winners are listed with the number of reported cases.

  1. Liposuction (41,642)
  2. Rhinoplasty, nose reshaping (29,996)
  3. Blepharoplasty, cosmetic eye lid surgery (23,251)
  4. Gynecomastia, reduction of male breasts (22,736)
  5. Otoplasty, correction of prominent ears (12,053)

The data collection for plastic surgery goes back to 1997. The number of procedures for men has more than doubled since that time. Men are also seeking nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, such as Botox injections in rapidly increasing numbers. There were 808,011 nonsurgical cosmetic procedures reported to have been performed on men in the United States during 2012 according to the American Society for Aesthetic Surgery.
