The most common cosmetic surgeries for men were nose reshaping, hair transplantation, liposuction, eyelid surgery, and breast reduction. More than 300,000 men got Botox and more than 200,000 got micodermabrasion, the report shows.

For the youngest patients, who were at most 18 years old, nose reshaping led the list. More than 47,300 youths had their noses reshaped in 2005, compared with more than 13,000 who got cosmetic surgery on their ears, about 3,000 who got liposuction, about 3,500 who got breast augmentation, and about 4,200 males who had breast reduction surgery.
