The 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveals that a conversation about body image is emerging among men. More than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2017 to enhance their looks and build confidence.
The statistics show that procedures such as liposuction (up 23%) and tummy tucks (up 12%) have grown in popularity among men over the past 5 years, while male breast reductions have increased about 30% in that time.
Older men are having more minimally-invasive procedures to take years off of their faces. Nearly 100,000 men had filler injections in 2017 (up 99% since 2000) with Botox quadrupling in popularity.
