Men Around the World Seek Cosmetic Surgery
Date:8/2/2009

MANCHESTER, England, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Cosmetic Surgery Guru reveals that men around the world are turning to cosmetic surgery in increasing numbers, driven by the recent economic downturn and a growing concern over "moobs" ("man boobs".)

Male cosmetic surgery rates are not only growing in America, the UK and other countries where the stigma attached to male cosmetic surgery has all but disappeared, but in the Middle East too. According to the Dubai Congress on Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine (DCAAAM), men now account for one in every five of Dubai's cosmetic surgery patients.

Although non-invasive treatments like Botox and laser hair removal for the back are the most common amongst men, surgical procedures, particularly male breast reduction, are becoming increasingly popular.

Credit Crunch

Public interest in cosmetic surgery has remained strong, despite the credit crunch. Men worldwide are looking to cosmetic surgery to boost their performance in an increasingly competitive job market. Some men who have been made redundant are using cosmetic surgery for therapeutic reasons: to improve self-esteem.

In Dubai, low oil prices and other negative economic factors have caused many people financial problems. Such problems have inspired men to invest in hair and beauty treatments as well as surgery, to boost their employment status as well as their confidence. The DCAAM predict that by 2013, men in Dubai will be spending $100 billion on cosmetic surgery each year.

"Moobs"

Gynaecomastia, enlargement of the male breast tissue, is becoming a serious concern to a growing number of men worldwide. Bryan Mayou of London's Cadogan Clinic sees "an increasing number of men coming into (his) clinic with body-image problems and low self-esteem because of this particular condition."
