Dr. Rondi Walker, a board certified plastic surgeon, in Washington, D.C. states, “my plastic surgery practice mirrors the national trend with an overall increase in the percent of patients undergoing elective plastic surgery.” She further states that recent data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery suggests that Americans have spent more than $12 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2014 alone, and early 2015 results mirror this data. Half of this $12 billion figure is spent on non-invasive procedures, including structural fat grafting and fillers.
Dr. Walker said ” I am seeing an increase in men in my practice, and also younger patients. The younger age groups are much more accepting of cosmetic procedures, and do not associate it with any stigma.”
Data from 2014 and 2015 shows procedures among men rose by 43 percent.
“Surgical correction is still the best option for lasting results. Among the patients who opt for surgical enhancement, the most common procedures I perform are blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), rhinoplasty (nose shape correction), and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck),” she said.
