Men poor cosmetic patients
Procedures such as nose jobs, liposuction and eyelid reductions are
becoming more popular with men, said Queensland University of
Technology psychology researcher Carolyn Rogers.
But overall, the results were unlikely to be as good as those for
women, who provide their surgeon with details of their medical history
and listen to advice.
"Men don't tell them all the information they need to know, such as
what medication they are on, and they tend not to follow post-operative
instructions," Ms Rogers said.
