Do men prefer more junk in the trunk? According to the latest plastic surgery statistics, men are increasingly concerned about their butts. Men accounted for 6.2 percent of cosmetic buttock procedures in 2012, up from 2.2 percent in 1997, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Bigger butts are not the only procedures that men are opting to receive. Overall, men had almost 1 million cosmetic procedures in 2012, an increase of over 106 percent from 1997. The top five surgical procedures for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast reduction to treat enlarged male breast and otoplasty (ear surgery).
Men of all ages and all walks of life are requesting plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons. Men’s goals include a more balanced nose, a rejuvenated face, a trimmer waistline.
