Evidently, women are not alone. Male baby boomers, according to stats, are getting more plastic surgery, too. Statistics reveal that male facelifts went up 14 percent in 2010. Facelifts are now the fastest growing male cosmetic procedure. Other surgeries that baby boomer men are requesting include ear surgery, liposuction, breast reduction, eyelid surgery, dermabrasion, and laser hair removal. These statistics are from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr, Tenley Lawton sees the trend of baby boomers seeking plastic surgery as the fuel that continues to grow her practice.
