According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), men had ten per cent of all cosmetic procedures in 2011. Everything from tummy tucks, to mole removal surgery is available at reputable clinics, but what are the guys having done? Let’s fine out!
The latest figures from BAAPS reveal that rhinoplasty (a type of nose surgery) was the most popular operation amongst men during 2011 – with 1,043 going under the knife. During this type of cosmetic surgery, the bridge, nose tip and nostrils are adjusting accordingly and the hooter’s reformed by a highly-trained surgeon.
Out of the 5,291 people who opted for a breast reduction, 790 of those were men! This may seem surprising, but numbers were up by seven per cent from 2010, showing that this procedure’s in high demand. Typically, breast tissue and skin are removed to reduce the size of the chest and the nipple is often re-positioned.
What is this, I head you cry? Well, it’s a type of eyelid surgery that can reduce the signs of ageing. If the skin around the eye becomes baggy, it can be removed, helping to eliminate lines and wrinkles. A total of 684 men (and 5,373 women) chose this procedure last year with numbers up by five per cent.
This might be another strange sounding word, but it’s simply the medical term for ear correction surgery. It’s a common procedure and can be used to change the size, shape and position of the ears. If they need to be pinned back, excess cartilage is often removed and the ears will be secured into their new position.
With the obesity epidemic at crisis point, there’s perhaps no wonder that liposuction surgery is available for both men and women. It’s a popular procedure and was carried out on 511 males – with number soaring by eight per cent. It was also favoured by females, with 3,581 having fat removed surgically.
The number of people having their bodies enhanced is on the rise, but would you have any work done?
