Older men are seeking cosmetic surgery in order to compete with younger colleagues, it has been claimed.
According to Marie Jenkins, patient coordinator at the Birkdale Clinic's Crosby centre, cosmetic surgery is being used to give men an edge in the jobs market.
As a result, the cosmetic surgery company's centres have witnessed a 75 per cent increase in men requesting surgery over the last six months.
Ms Jenkins told Female First: "We have seen more men through the door and more than half of them said they were interested in facial surgery procedures like botox as well as teeth whitening to make them look and feel better so that they had a better chance when it comes to a new job or promotion.
"It seems as if in these tough times, men are going to much further lengths than just having a haircut or buying a new suit."
The expert also told Female First that 80 per cent of men have dermal fillers or botox, while ten per cent go for a more invasive facelift.
The Birkdale Clinic was established in 1993 and initially focussed on ophthalmic services. It has since branched out into a wide range of divisions, including cosmetic surgery, dental surgery, orthopaedic and general surgery.
