Plastic surgery is becoming more and more prevalent among grooms before their wedding day. A new study suggests one in three prospective grooms said they were considering cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance.
Recent statistics show that it’s no longer only brides-to-be who fuss about how they look on their wedding day. Grooms think about it too.
A new survey from a UK website called Good Surgeon Guide included input from more than a thousand engaged men and women. One in three prospective grooms said they were considering cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance.
In the same survey, nine percent of the men had already undergone surgery.
The statistics for women were higher – with 58 percent of them considering going under the knife and 11 percent of them already customers.
But one big difference is why they would do it. Whereas 64 percent of the women said plastic surgery would make them feel better about themselves, three out of five men said they were most concerned with looking good for their spouse.
And the biggest difference is the most popular procedure. Sixty-eight percent of the women chose Botox injections as the most appealing. Seventy-eight percent of the men, however, preferred dental veneers.
In a similar study, The Hospital Group, a major UK surgery provider, reported a 60 percent increase in tummy tucks for men since 2004. If all this keeps up, the grooms may soon look prettier than their brides.
