Men opt for cosmetic surgery

More and more British men are choosing to have cosmetic surgery, a new survey has revealed.

According to research by the Harley Medical Group, there has been a 26 per cent increase in the number of males having operations such as facelift and breast reductions in the last year.

The study found that a number of factors are fuelling this trend, such as bad diets and long working hours, reports the Press Association.

People who have worked in top-end professions, such as accountancy, law and finance were said to be especially likely to go under the knife.

"The side-effects of a punishing job can cause the loss of skin elasticity and encourage build-up of stubborn fat in key areas," observed Harley surgeon Riccardo Frati.

He added that the lifestyle and stress levels that often go with these professions make men "prime candidates" for premature ageing.

The findings come after cosmetic surgery expert Dr Jean Loftus noted that people who have undergone a divorce are increasingly opting to enhance their appearance to boost their self-esteem.
