Popularity of botox increases among older men
Non-invasive botox treatments are becoming increasingly common among middle-aged patients, new figures reveal.
According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, non-invasive botox treatments were up by two per cent in 2010, especially among baby boomers.
The number of male surgical operations remained stagnant at 1.1 million between 2007 and 2009, the figure increased to 2.1 million in 2010.
Experts have put the increase in the number of male botox enthusiasts down to the fact that middle-aged men are becoming more conscious of their appearance and are becoming more open to surgical treatments to improve the way they look.
Mumbai-based cosmetic surgeon Manoj Kumar J Manwani, who deals with approximately 5,000 – 6,000 cases every year, said: "All lunchtime surgeries take less than an hour, are non
-invasive or superficial, can be done with local anaesthesia and show results immediately."
Douglas Ray Jr, 65, recently filed a £12 million lawsuit against botox maker Allergan, claiming that the substance caused him to suffer brain damage.
