More Guys Are Doing Plastic Surgery, But Secretly

Men have a reputation for avoiding the doctor's office, even when they are sick, but the issue may be different when it comes to Botox or Cosmetic Surgery.



Absolutely? Still, there are those who might say that numbers lie, that they can be skewed. Well, let me tell you that I've witnessed the growing trend of "more guys doing plastic surgery." A couple of years ago, I was hired to write Web pages for plastic surgeons. At the time, plastic surgery for men was something most of the doctors I worked for just weren't concerned with. The direction I received was to focus exclusively on answering the questions a woman might have regarding surgery or a minimally invasive treatment. And, usually, I was to write to women in their 30's and 40's who had had children. Over the course of the last year or so? Well, now doctors want pages to appeal to either both men and women or they want specific sections of their sites dedicated solely to the concerns a man might have.
