When you read news about celebrities and plastic surgery, typically the protagonists of the stories are women. But there are many men in Tinseltown who have visited some of the top plastic surgeons to help them restore their looks. Recently, the Huffington Post took a look at some of the most well-known male stars who have elected to go under the knife, and some of them may surprise you.
In the world of music
Even though singers and instrumentalists are primarily adored for their musical prowess, it doesn't hurt for them to keep up a good image. There are many male performers who have gotten plastic surgery. Kenny Rogers is one example – he got a facelift to help him look younger, in part because he wanted to look as youthful as his wife. Barry Manilow also got a facelift – two, in fact. One of his procedures focused on the upper part of his face, and the other targeted the mouth and chin area.
Though he's technically not a musician, Howard Stern is known for his iconic voice, given that he's a talk show host. The radio personality has undergone liposuction to remove his double chin and rhinoplasty surgery to adjust the look of his nose.
Actors who've gone under the knife
A number of actors have chosen to get plastic surgery as well. Burt Reynolds, who has always been known for his good looks, has gotten an eye lift to reduce his crow's feet as well as a facelift to give him an overall more youthful look.
While he hasn't come out and said so, The Daily Beast speculates that funny-man Steve Martin has had some work done. The news source presents photos of the actor that suggest he may have gotten a facelift or Botox injections. Clint Eastwood and Michael Douglas are also on the website's list of potential plastic surgery patients.
A rising trend
Over the years, more and more men have chosen to enlist the services of a top cosmetic surgeon to improve their looks. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery states that in 2012, board-certified doctors performed almost 1 million cosmetic procedures on male patients, making up 10 percent of the total number of plastic surgery operations carried out that year.
