There is a lot of discussion about plastic surgery
these days but if you think that only women are
having it, you are missing the picture. Yes,
the majority of plastic surgery patients are still
women but men are also getting it done, and not
all of them are metrosexuals. (Related

cosmetic plastic surgery procedures that men would choose to have performed according to a recent survey of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
"These survey results confirm what we see in our practices," said ASPS President James Wells, MD, Long Beach, Calif. "Men are as concerned as women with maintaining a look that corresponds to the way they feel.

Andrew Rukavina, Ivanhoe, Ill., had liposuction and
Botox procedures. "I sacrificed some of my physical makeup over the years to hard work, long hours and stress, and I wanted to get some of that back," said Rukavina now in his mid-forties. "I get a lot of business based on

According to the ASPS good candidates for plastic surgery have realistic expectations and understand that a procedure can enhance appearance and
self-confidence, but won't necessarily match their ideal or cause people to treat them differently.
Before deciding on any cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, check the physician’s credentials. Choose a plastic surgeon who is an ASPS member (or member of a competent/equivalent authority in your country), which verifies their certification by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. These
board-certified plastic surgeons have graduated from an accredited medical school, completed at least five years of residency – a minimum of three years of general surgery and at least two years of plastic surgery. In addition, they have passed rigid oral and written exams and abide by a strict code of ethics.
