Cosmetic procedures for men are up, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. In fact, cosmetic surgery enhancements for men have increased over 100% since 1997. What’s up?
An increasing number of men undergo cosmetic enhancements to help them compete in the business world. Studies have long ago proven that attractive people earn more money and progress more rapidly up the corporate ladder than do individuals who are less physically appealing. Anthropologists say we are hard-wired to partner with the healthiest members of the species, and that this genetic need is behind our attraction to the attractive.
Secondly, as Baby Boomers age, more and more men approach cosmetic surgery to look the way they feel: young. Like women, men are physically in better shape than their parents at the same age. Life expectancy has increased dramatically, and men want to look younger to match the healthy, youthful way they feel.
Third, with the increasing divorce rate, men are seeking partners in middle age and beyond. Looking attractive is part of the “packaging,” if you will.
