Australian Men Flock to Surgeon’s Knife

More and more Aussie men are opting to go under the plastic surgeon’s knife.

Now at 39, Rahme has had five nose procedures and two ear lifts.

While young women are known to be the group most susceptible to body image problems, researchers such as psychologist Julie Malone, have seen that young men are increasingly at risk. She warned that boys as young as seven are becoming prone to distorted views on their own bodies and what masculinity looks like due to an increase in unrealistic images presented to them through the media. http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/1786896/Male-body-image-The-increase-in-male-cosmetic-surg
