In the past 15 years, plastic surgery procedures have begun to grow in popularity for the male gender, increasing by 106 percent since 1997. While cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for men was seen as something you did not do in the 80's and 90's, it has become increasingly popular and widely accepted. In 2011, 9 percent of all cosmetic procedures were performed on men, while 91 percent were done on women. There is still a drastic difference between the amounts of procedures performed on the two genders, but considering the fact that men took part in a total of 1.2 million cosmetic procedures in 2011, it is definitely on the rise.
The most popular procedures for men include liposuction, ear reshaping, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty and removing excess tissue around the breast region. In today's society, men are receiving tummy tucks and treating it no differently as getting a haircut. They are not ashamed or afraid to talk to family members about and they may openly share with his friends that they had the procedure done. Men are coming in more and more for anything from minor Botox injections to more invasive surgeries. It not only can help them with self-esteem issues regarding weight, face shape or other appearance concerns. Men can feel relieved knowing that there is no longer a taboo against them.
