DESPITE RECESSION SURGERY FOR MEN INCREASES
According to the “American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery” (ASAPS), cosmetic procedures dropped only 2% from 2008. Compared to all surgical procedures, which had a drop of 17%. Of all cosmetic procedures done, men make up a total of 9%, but for men there was actually an increase of 8%.
Dr. Miguel A.. Delgado, Jr. is a member of ASAPS which is the leading organization of plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, who specialize in cosmetic surgery. On March 9, 2010 the 13th Annual Cosmetic Surgery Statistics from the Aesthetic Society were published. You will note that gynecomastia surgery, male breast reduction, also known as Moobs, is in the top 5 procedures for men.
This can most likely be explained by the fact that many people realize the importance of feeling good about themself and how it projects into their lifestyle and work place. In these challenging times we are all facing, a good attitude and self image is of utmost importance.
