So, what are the most common procedures? The top five surgical procedures listed for men in 2015 were: Liposuction, Nose Surgery, Eyelid Surgery, Male Breast Reduction, and Facelift.

    Non-surgical options are on the rise as well with medical grade skin care products, chemical peels, laser facial and photofacial (IPL) treatments being increasingly more common.
