The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has released the results of a survey of 618 men, finding that 31% of respondents reported being “extremely likely” to consider a cosmetic procedure, either surgical or nonsurgical.

The survey found that 44% of men reported that they would have a treatment done to feel better about themselves, while 31% would have a “fix” to please a partner, according to a press release.

Among the participants, 31% reported wanting to look less tired and 25% would consider a procedure to remain competitive in the workplace.

Concerns included hair, with 60% of those surveyed reporting that their hair or lack of hair bothered them the most, followed by skin and eyes (44%, each), chin and neck (22%) and distinguishing forehead wrinkles (19%).

"We see a lot of men coming in, wanting to look less tired," Fred G. Fedok, MD, FACS, president of the AAFPRS and a facial plastic surgeon based in Alabama, stated in the release. "Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, in conjunction with a neuromodulator such as Botox for crows feet is a popular combination to reverse puffy, sagging and perpetually tired-looking eyes."

Younger men reported favorably to cosmetic procedures. Among the 31% of men who reported being extremely likely to consider a treatment to look better, 58% were aged 25 to 34 years, while 35% were aged 18 to 24 years.

Risks were a concern for 46% of men surveyed.
