It's no surprise, therefore, that men want procedures with hidden incision points, minimal scarring and results that elicit a response of: "Have you lost weight?" instead of a response of: "Is that your real nose?" Men's desire for subtlety has even led plastic surgeons to develop variations on common procedures. For instance, a man's face lift is handled quite differently from a woman's, for more subtle and masculine results.

Cosmetic surgery for men continues to grow and gain acceptance. It's not about economics; it's not about class distinctions; it's about self-esteem. As long as plastic surgery solutions remain safe, affordable, and effective, men will continue to "take a little off the top."
