The Rise of Male Cosmetic Surgery

Posted on May 11, 2015 Plastic Surgery

It has typically been thought that spending time on your appearance and money on enhancing beauty has primarily been a concern for the female gender. Over the last several years, men have been making a booming appearance into the world of cosmetic procedures. If you are considering a procedure to help you attain a more youthful appearance, contact Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Bottger, at 610-355-1929 to schedule a consultation.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported a 273% increase in the number of men who received cosmetic procedures between 1997 and 2012.According the ASAPS, the top 5 procedures that men received in 2014 were:

  1. Liposuction
  2. Rhinoplasty
  3. Eyelid Surgery
  4. Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
  5. Facelift

Non-surgical procedures such as ultrasound therapy and fillers have become increasingly more popular among men as well, the most popular being Botox.

For some men, the choice to get cosmetic surgery is a personal one because they want to improve their appearance and feel better about themselves, while for many others the choice is driven by a career focus.

For those men who receive procedures to compete in an already competitive marketplace, the belief is that you wear your resume on your face. When it comes to success and climbing the corporate ladder, the better you look, the further you get.

The trend of men receiving cosmetic procedures remains on the rise and is expected to continue increasing over the years. If you reside in or around Philadelphia and are interested in learning more about the different cosmetic options available to you, schedule a consultation with experienced plastic surgeon Dr. David Bottger by contacting our practice at 610-355-1929 today.
