No longer vain for men to go under the knife

It’s no longer vain for men to go under the knife. Even political party presidents are having botox and metrosexual preparations:

According to the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 69,812 cosmetic surgery procedures performed in 2011, and a further 31,000 non-surgical procedures, such as Botox injections and laser treatments. (This represented a hefty drop on 2010, when a total of 164,000 procedures were performed – a decrease the ASPS blames on the GFC.)

The traditional market for this has, of course, been women. Increasingly, however, men are following suit. ASPS doesn’t categorise procedures by gender, but the society’s NSW president, Dr Graham Sellars, says he sees more men every year. “Across the board, cosmetic procedures are more socially acceptable, probably because of reality TV and glossy mags that broach the subject more openly and frequently. And that acceptance is extending to men. The fact that Gordon Ramsay and Mickey Rourke have both admitted to having surgery certainly hasn’t hurt.”

Sellars has performed most of the common procedures men undergo: Botox, ear corrections, eyelid surgery, tummy and arm tucks, “moob jobs” (breast reductions for men) and, most popularly, rhinoplasty. The only ones he hasn’t tackled are calf and buttock implants, penile enlargements and the terrifying-sounding scrotal lift, for guys who want to tidy up their dangling testicles.

Som politicians need surgery to give them some balls.
