Plastic surgery and skincare trends for men: Hello, handsome [INFOGRAPHIC]
Good news for the cosmetic industry - men are now investing in plastic surgery, beauty products and anti-aging services. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10 percent of plastic surgery procedures, a 121 percent increase from 15 years ago, are performed on men. The top five focus on the face (rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and facelift) or on body contouring procedures like liposuction and male breast reduction (gynecomastia).
A survey by NPD Group, shows that men account for 47 percent of the health and beauty products bought in 2011 and that number is up six percent so far in the first half of 2012. For men who want good skin, but might not know what to buy, BeautyStat.com discovered that they tend to “borrow” it from their wives and girlfriends - straight out of the medicine cabinet.
