Dear Dr. Togba,
Q. I get the impression that cosmetic plastic surgery is something just for the ladies. Is that correct?
A. Not at all. Men have been availing themselves of cosmetic procedures in increasing numbers. They now account for 9% of all cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. The most popular procedure for men is nose reshaping, followed closely by eyelid surgery and liposuction. Male breast reduction, facelifts, hair restoration, ear surgery, Botox, dermabrasion, and laser hair removal are other popular cosmetic procedures which are increasingly brining men into plastic surgeons’ offices throughout the country.
