Men are more likely to look after their looks and their health. One aspect of this is the growth in cosmetic surgery.
According to the Men's Health Forum, the proportion of men going under the knife has increased by 140% over the past five years. Medics have seen a dramatic increase in the number of 50-something male patients coming into their clinics. Liposuction is the most popular procedure. Men tend to rid themselves of the handles and sagging abdomens, said doctors, while women reduce flabby thighs and hips. Face-lifts, tummy-tucks, neck-lifts, eyebrow-lifts, nose jobs and chin implants are also gaining in popularity among men.
