Wall Street Men Getting More Botox To Hide Growing Stresses Of The Job

Posted: Updated:

If your favorite banker looks a little better next time you see him, it may not be because of a vacation.

Dermatologist Dendy Engelman told Bloomberg Television that Wall Street men are “the fastest growing segment of my patient population," because they're looking to smooth out the stress lines caused by the European crisis abroad and weak economy at home. But while bankers are willing to go under the knife, they do want to make sure they aren't found out; Engelman says her Wall Street clients fear being found out by wives and colleagues.

Bankers aren't alone in upping their trips to the dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery procedures went up 5 percent in 2011 from the year before, according to The Guardian. And don't just blame women. Plastic surgery among men is on the rise too.
