Male Cosmetic Surgery Slows Down While Female Cosmetic Surgery Advances
Date:3/31/2009

The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery 2008 Procedural Survey shows a 2% decrease in male cosmetic surgery

CHICAGO, March 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the first time in several years, male cosmetic surgery has declined 2% during 2008. The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS), a leader in the cosmetic surgery industry, conducted its annual Procedural Survey and the survey reveals that males are cutting back on cosmetic procedures.

During 2008, cosmetic surgeons have seen a 2% decrease in male clientele, while 29% more females have visited a cosmetic surgeon. Males have moved away from cosmetic procedures whereas females have continued to take advantage of the effective, less-invasive procedures due to the lower cost and the quicker recovery time. Procedures such as Botox injections and laser resurfacing have continued to remain steady for these reasons.

"For the time being, males and females are beginning to separate themselves in regards to cosmetic surgery," states AACS President Patrick McMenamin, M.D. "It used to be that the yearly percentage gain in males was matching that of the women but now women are choosing to invest in themselves while men have reduced the desire to have cosmetic surgery. The economy of course plays a role in the scaling back of cosmetic procedures but the advancement and effectiveness of less-invasive procedures has also boosted the industry for women."

Other notable findings from the survey include:

  • Over the past three years, cosmetic surgeons have seen a significant increase in both males (456%) and females (215%) electing to have laser resurfacing. Although the economy is struggling, these laser procedures are looking to be recession resistant. For instance, laser resurfacing has seen an approximate $450 decline in price since 2002.
