Plastic Surgery: Not Just for Women, For Men Too

By Cathyrin @CatherineBaleda
“Beauty lasts five minutes. Maybe longer if you have a good plastic surgeon.” (Tia Carrere)

Who says that only women are vain with regards to their looks? Based from the data of American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), men underwent 1.1 million plastic surgery procedures in 2010, an average 2% increase over the previous year largely among men in their 50s and 60s. ASPS President Phillip Haeck further said that the apparent growth in plastic surgery was due to the aging baby boomers that are now ready to have plastic surgery.
What Drives them?Many doctors wearing their usual lab coats say that some of their patients commonly complaint that they don't think that they look as good as they feel. A number of patients are fresh off a divorce or looking for a competitive edge in an office full of young employees. Others are encouraged by wives who have had successful procedures — or are kind enough to ask why their husbands' once-smooth brows now appear permanently furrowed. I guess, the common reason (apart from medical purposes)lies within the heart of self confidence and insecurities. Men, like women are not immune to the common malady of humanity, which is vanity.
