What are the most popular types of cosmetic surgery for men?

Cosmetic surgery is increasing in popularity with men. Even though more women than men choose to have surgery, the numbers of men opting for some form of cosmetic procedure has increased over the last few years.

This may be because women are seen to be much more concerned with their appearance than men. And society places much more pressure on women to look good. Traditionally, women have been judged on physical appearance whereas men have not.

However, this trend has started to change especially with the rise of celebrity culture. Men as well as women are much more concerned with how they look, dress and feel. This has become more of an issue with the current economic climate. Plus we in the West place a high premium of physical attractiveness, body image and self-confidence.

Men are now experiencing these cultural pressures. They are turning to cosmetic surgery as a way of boosting their confidence and desirability in an increasingly competitive world.

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) reports that many more men are choosing to have cosmetic surgery. The top 5 most popular cosmetic procedures are:

  1. Rhinoplasty
  2. Blepharoplasty
  3. Otoplasty
  4. Liposuction
  5. Male breast reduction surgery

Other equally popular procedures include facelifts or ‘rhytidectomy’, abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’ and ‘brow lifts’.

Men are also turning to non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxation.
