Survey Finds That Women Are More Likely to Consider Plastic Surgery Than They Were Ten Years Ago, But Men Are Less Likely
Date:3/16/2009

NEW YORK, March 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new survey shows that more than half (56%) of all Americans approve of cosmetic plastic surgery and nearly one-third (30%) say they would consider having cosmetic surgery themselves, either now or in the future. The February 2009 consumer attitudes poll of 1000 American households was commissioned by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and conducted by the independent research firm Synovate.

Women are more likely than men to contemplate cosmetic surgery; 40% of women said they would consider having cosmetic surgery, compared to 18% of men. But many of those who might not want surgery themselves say it has nothing to do with what others might think. Almost three-quarters (73%) of all women and 69% of all men said that if they had cosmetic surgery, they would not be embarrassed if other people knew about it.
