More men getting plastic surgery
Although we may write about women most of the time on this blog, we cannot forget that the number of men getting plastic surgery today is rising. Many high profile men opt to go under the knife but even 'average men' want to improve their appearance and are certainly willing to go through surgery. An ASPS Member Surgeon, Dr. Stephen Baker told one news source, "They want to look good. So when they have the financial means to do it, they are ready to do it now." (IndianExpress) Some of the more popular cosmetic procedures that men are having done seem to be rhinoplasty, facelifts and hair transplants, in addition to getting peels and using fillers.
Of course, I do feel the need to mention that women still get more plastic surgery than men. According to IndianExpress, "Women received 91 per cent of all cosmetic procedures, totaling 11.5 million." Breast Augmentation has been noted as being the top cosmetic procedure for women. Last year about 300,000 women underwent breast augmentation, making this a 40% increase of women going under the knife for this procedure in the last 10 years. I'd also like to add that this procedure remains to be the most popular procedure among Dr. Walden's patients.
