New Numbers Show Jump In Men Getting Plastic Surgery

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show men are doing more nipping and tucking.

The ASPS reported a 2 percent plastic surgery jump nationwide in just one year. In the New York metro area that spike may be even higher, 1010 WINS' Mona Rivera reported.


1010 WINS' Mona Rivera speaks to Dr. Lyle Leipziger about the new trend

Dr. Lyle Leipziger, Chief of Plastic Surgery at North Shore University Hospital on Long Island, said he has seen "at least a 5 percent increase" in male clientele over the past few years.

"In my practice I've certainly seen an increase in the number of men," Leipziger said.

National figures showed a 14 percent increase in face lifts among men. Liposuction and body contouring were catching on as well.

Leipziger said he has seen a number of men come in to refresh their upper and lower eyelids.

"Men in business seem to do this quite a bit to make them look younger -- especially in a more competitive environment," he said.

Many believe that with plastic surgery becoming mainstreamed, it may become much more common to see men having work done.
