A new report by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has reported that plastic surgeries are on the rise among millennial men.
The number of men getting plastic surgery has skyrocketed 325 percent since 1997.
All men report a variety of reasons for getting plastic surgery, including pressure to look young, or to continue to look pleasing to their partners.
The Daily Mail reports:
The study was conducted by surveying a group of 618 men and asking them if they were willing to have plastic surgery.
Millennials made up the majority of the 31 percent of respondents who said they would be ‘extremely likely” to consider a procedure, both surgical or non-surgical.
Males aged 25 to 34 made up 58 percent of the ‘yes’ answers and men aged 18 to 24 made up 34 percent.
Together, these millennials accounted for 92 percent of the affirmative responses.
American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery then questioned the reasons behind why these men were willing to have surgery.
Those aged 25 to 34 were more likely to say they wanted to feel better about themselves, around 60 percent citing this reason.
Younger men said they did the plastic surgery to help them find mates, or to do better in their career fields.
Regardless, there is a new pattern of men being targeted to look a certain way, which is something that has never happened before. The new generation of millennials is holding themselves to different aesthetic standards, and men are now feeling the same pressure as women.
Women also report very similar reasons for undergoing plastic surgery.
