According to the 2014 cosmetic surgery statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, cosmetic surgery among men has grown 43 percent over the past five years. Plastic surgeons and other people have attributed this rise to a number of factors, such as:
- To stay competitive in the workplace by retaining a youthful look, which in turn can make you feel more confident and self-assured. Many men see achieving this competitive edge as an investment in their career success.
- A greater emphasis on a healthy lifestyle has left many men just wanting to look better. Like women, men can get unsightly, stubborn bulges. They can also get enlarged male breast tissue and drooping skin. Cosmetic surgery provides a way to make your physical appearance better reflect your inner feelings of youthfulness, vitality and masculinity.
According to the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the average age of men undergoing cosmetic surgery is 45 years old. The same study went on to say that men between 30 and 40 were more likely to get non-surgical treatments, while men age 50 to 70 were more likely to get surgeries like face lifts and eyelid surgery.
