There was a time when male facelift surgery was assumed to be something only women were interested in. The quest for refreshed and younger-looking face is not just for women anymore.
New numbers show men are flocking for skin treatments in record numbers. Many men who opt for male facelift surgery are baby boomers, but the ages of male patients and their reasons for seeking cosmetic surgery vary widely.
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased by more than 106% between 1997 and 2012.
Research shows that men want plastic surgery for two reasons: to look good and stay competitive in the job market. Men get surgery as a key tool to help them succeed.
Currently, the most common cosmetic procedures for men are liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose job), eyelid surgery, gynescomastia (removal of breast tissue), and ear shaping, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The list of the most popular minimally-invasive procedures for men is topped by Botox.
