Why I decided to use botox: a BBC journalist explores what is behind the increase in cosmetic procedures among men

BBC reporter Ed Butler, 54, decided to undergo one of the most popular procedures: botox.

There is an old phrase that says “you only have wrinkles where smiles have been”. Mine, however, are showing up in some of the strangest corners of my 54-year-old face.

Appealing to a surgical solution hadn’t been on my radar until recently, after a surprising increase in the number of men seeking “a touch-up” last year.

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons says a third of its members saw an increase in inquiries from men last year.

Could it be because we’ve all spent the last year forever watching our reflection on work video calling screens?
