Cosmetic Surgery for Men

For years, cosmetic surgery was viewed as a "women only" procedure..but specialists say men are lining up in growing numbers for cosmetic procedures like botox injections, nose jobs, eye lifts and more. KTEN's Margaret Stokes reports.

The American Society Of Plastic Surgeons reports the number of men having cosmetic procedures has jumped significantly--up 44 percent since 2000.     

Over a million men underwent cosmetic surgery procedure last year alone.  Botox injections and rhinoplasty are among the most common cosmetic procedures for men.  Also high on the list for men are microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, chemical peels, hair transplants, liposuction, and eyelid surgery.

Specialists with OU Physicians say men have always cared about their appearance-it's just become more acceptable to do something about it. 

According OU Physicians the typical male cosmetic surgery patient is in his mid thirties to mid-fifties and is usually a working professional.
