On Tuesday of this week we featured in the Daily Mail, in conjunction with industry reports that show a huge increase in the number of male patients in their fifties and sixties seeking cosmetic treatments in order to achieve a more defined, muscular physique at a later stage in life.
VASER expert at The Private Clinic, Dr. Mike Comins, has first-hand experience of this growing trend:
‘Some four-five years ago the average age of a patient who came to me expressing an interest in VASER was around 30 years old. At that time it was incredibly rare for men in their 50s and 60s to seek the treatment. However, now a considerable proportion of the males I treat are 50 or older, which demonstrates a dramatic change in attitude towards cosmetic treatment.’
The presence of older males in the public eye is being named as the reason for this growth in cosmetic procedures amongst the older generations. Hollywood stars in their 50s, such as Liam Neeson, Tom Cruise and Sean Penn, have all featured heavily in the press in the past couple of years, revealing toned, enviable torsos that many elder males are looking for ways to replicate. Only last week we blogged about the race to the top of the career ladder, and the competition that exists for older males to look younger in the workplace.

VASER Liposuction is a minimally invasive, specialist body sculpting procedure which removes fat from localised areas of the body. Unlike traditional Liposuction, VASER Lipo does not require the patient to go under general anaesthetic – it is a walk-in, walk-out procedure that will not leave any scarring.
