    Men can be just as vain as women. And it is not beneath them to visit cosmetic centres to undergo treatments or even surgery. The two primary reasons for doing so? To look good and to stay on top of their careers by looking competitive.

    Experts have noted a steady rise in the number of men booking appointments with beauty centres, especially in the United States. The numbers back their claim: there was a 106 percent increase in men seeking plastic surgery between 1997 and 2012.

    In Britain, male cosmetic surgery rates grew by 16 percent in 2013.

    There is a similar trend in Singapore. According to a woman's magazine, 10 percent of patients queuing at Singapore General Hospital's Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic department are men. A decade ago, it was just 5 percent.

    Similarly, local beauty clinics also reported a 15 to 20 percent increase in its male clientele.

    Dr. Douglas Steinbrech told Business Insider that men mostly want to either look good or stay looking competitive in the job market. Looking ‘in top form’ is also a major reason why Singaporean men consult with cosmetic doctors.

    So what are the most common cosmetic surgeries men opt for?

    The Telegraph notes that nothing beats liposuction when it comes to male-directed cosmetic surgery.

    Men opt for the once-female dominated type of procedure because they want to highlight their muscles and give definition to their physique.

    Others want the convenience of losing that stubborn fat that still won't shed even after countless hours in the gym.

    Moobs – Removal of male boobs
    Man boobs, or the build-up of extra tissue in a man’s chest area (gynaecomastia), affects 40 percent of men, according to Daily Mail.

    The condition is often attributed to an imbalance of oestrogen and testosterone levels in a man’s body. It can also be caused by medications like heart and liver pills, some cancer drugs, anabolic steroids, and illegal drugs.

    Exercise will not address this problem, as it is not a result of being overweight. According to DM, surgery is the only treatment to remove excess breast tissue.

    More middle-aged men are turning to Botox to make unwanted wrinkles disappear.

    Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It temporarily paralyzes the muscles and can be used to remove wrinkles or treat muscular conditions.

    One advantage of Botox is that it makes a man’s face appear fresh, all the time, with no hint of fatigue or stress. It is especially helpful in career management as men who need to travel for work a lot and make business presentations need always need to look fresh.

    According to Her World, this is one reason why Singaporean men are “hooked” on Botox treatments.

    Simply, rhinoplasty is a nose job and involves peeling back the skin of the nose and reshaping the cartilage and bone using blunt or sharp instruments. The procedure works exceptionally well in boosting confidence. Of course, most of the time men just really want to look great, experts add.

    Rhinoplasty is also a means to ditch ‘family-inherited' noses, repair an old injury, or fix a breathing problem such as a deviated septum.

    Pectoral improvement
    The most common type of surgery for male models and body builders is a pectoral improvement. Unlike breast implants, pec enhancement for men should be formed to touch.

    Primarily, and as with liposuction, men opt for pec enhancement to look good and boost confidence.

    One man experienced a ‘horrific’ pectoral enhancement when his implant became infected, according to the Sun. The infected implant had to be removed, and left the man, only known as Brett, with an asymmetric figure, since he had one “breast.”
