ASAPS Cosmetic Surgery Attitude Study Shows Big Gender Differences: American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Reports 2004 Survey

New York, NY (February 19, 2004) – Women are more than twice as likely as men to consider having cosmetic plastic surgery, and the gender gap may be widening. According to a February 2004 attitude study of 1000 Americans 18 years of age and older, 34 percent of women said they would consider cosmetic surgery, an increase of 4 percent from February 2003. Among men, 14 percent said they would consider cosmetic surgery, a decrease of 4 percent from a year ago. General approval of cosmetic surgery was high among both women and men.

Other key findings of the study include:

>51 percent of women and 42 percent of men said they generally approve of cosmetic surgery.

>Among all Americans, 80 percent of women and 74 percent of men said they would not be embarrassed if others knew they had cosmetic surgery.

>Most people (70 percent) said their attitude toward cosmetic surgery hadn't changed in the last five years, though 19 percent said it was "more favorable" and 10 percent said "less favorable."
