The number of men having facial cosmetic and facial plastic surgery has been steadily growing for years. There is no longer a stigma associated with improving one’s appearance through facial rejuvenation procedures and minimally invasive techniques, and men are turning to plastic surgery every day… to feel better, look younger, and to help with their careers. Many times image can be the key to getting ahead in ultra-competitive work environments. In fact according to one of the latest statistics from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, men state that their top reasons for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery is to benefit their career; self-improvement and esteem, and to increase competitiveness in the workplace. And certainly men want to remain attractive for their significant other.
Top on the list for cosmetic procedures for men is neurotoxins such as Botox. This has been men’s number one nonsurgical procedure since 2002. In fact there has been an 84% increase in men’s botulinum toxin procedures in the past 5 years.
