More men are having the looks of their legs improved than ever. Members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) reported an increase of 226 percent in the last five years of men seeking treatment for spider veins or varicose veins. The problem is most common in legs, but can also affect areas of the face and breasts.  Sclerotherapy, as it is called, was the second most popular cosmetic procedure in 2007, behind liposuction but ahead of eyelid surgery, breast augmentation and hair transplant/replacement. And it is getting cheaper and easier for both genders.  The number of options for treatments, including laser repair, are going up.

Spiffy legs used to be the purview of women, but it seems to be growing among men.  Know anyone who has cosmetic help with their legs, male or female?  If you’re a woman, do you care what your man’s legs look like?
