Though women undergo about 90 percent of cosmetic procedures in the United States, the fact that men have ramped up to 10 percent of tummy tucks, Botox injections and other surgeries is a pretty radical departure from past attitudes toward plastic surgery. Just five years ago, even, male clientele were relatively few and far between for most Miami plastic surgeons. Now, as the general public has discovered how transformative and empowering these treatments can be, it’s no surprise that men are getting in on the action.
Recently, Babble – a lifestyle website – reported on a growing trend of prominent male celebrities who have gone under the knife. Recently, we noted that Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean underwent a hair transplant earlier this year. Now, Babble states that singer Robbie Williams has also admitted to this procedure. The Los Angeles-based Brit, who was a member of the U.K. boy band “Take That” before striking out on his solo career, discussed his cosmetic enhancements on “The Graham Norton Show” in London.
“I’ve lived in LA for a long time and they say, ‘If you sit in a barber’s shop for long enough you will get a hair cut.’ Well, if you live in Los Angeles for long enough you’re going to get some surgery.”
Male grooming habits have certainly gotten more sophisticated in the last few years, thanks to perfectly tailored and chiseled celebrities like David Beckham. Suddenly, it seems ok – and is even becoming expected – for men invest a bit in their appearance as well.
