Would you get your man Botox for the holidays?
"Good Morning America" did a profile this morning on women who -- hint, hint -- offer to take their guys to the plastic surgeon or dermatologist for a little pick-me-up of Botox, or, cheekily, "Brotox."
ABC News reports that more than 300,000 men got Botox last year, a 10 percent increase from the previous one, and also that a reportedly soaring number of men who are receiving "Botox gift cards" from their concerned significant others.
And overall, increasingly more men are going under the knife -- due to a friendly nudge or not; the number of men getting plastic surgery has soared by 45 percent since 2000. The most popular procedures? Face lifts, eyelid surgery and liposuction -- and now perhaps, anti-wrinkle injections.
While more and more women might be suggesting the treatment, it's also possible that men are having increasing concerns about body image. A startling recent survey also found that almost 50 percent of gay men who were asked would sacrifice a year or more of their lives to have a perfect body.
But the obvious downside to handing your man a Botox gift card? Uh...awkward. ABC cites this tip:
"If you're gonna give plastic surgery as a ... gift, make sure that the person actually wants it ... because some men might take it poorly," [plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony] Youn said.
