More Wall Street men are turning to Botox
August 21, 2012
Wall Street can be an intense environment, and sometimes the stress of the job can make its way to the face. While there's a belief that women are the ones to get injectables to improve their appearance, it seems as though men aren't shy about hiding some lines either, particularly those in hectic jobs.
According to the Business Insider, many men who work on Wall Street are turning to injectable procedures in order to look refreshed in a high-stress working environment.
"They just want to kind of reverse all the stress that obviously this economical climate has put on them," one surgeon told Bloomberg TV, according to the news provider. She noted some of the reasons behind Wall Street guys looking to hide their lines include the European debt crisis and the U.S.'s weakened economy.
This is not the first sign that men are warming to the idea of reducing their stress lines. A previous report from My Fox Detroit suggested that more men were turning to Botox in an effort to appear younger. However, some plastic surgeons noted that men aimed for a more subtle look than some female patients.
While Botox may be a first step to looking younger, men have been looking at other options for going under the knife, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. A new report suggests in 2011, the top surgical procedures for men were liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, breast reduction for male breasts and facelifts. Men also accounted for 9 percent of the total number of cosmetic procedures last year, increasing 121 percent from 1997.
