SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Some "older" male techies are apparently turning to cosmetic surgery to stay competitive in the job market.

A "plastic surgeon to the startups" says there's a 25 percent increase in Silicon Valley workers who are getting face-lifts and Botox injections to look younger, as they apply for gigs among Millennials and Generation Z.

A San Francisco cosmetic dermatologist claims he is the single largest provider of Botox in the world because of his male clients.He adds that techies are now referring to the injections as "Brotox."

With a price tag of around $375, he says men usually start with Botox and injectables to smooth lines around their eyes and mouth, before moving to a $3,200 eyelid surgery, $4,365 neck lift, $3400 brow lift, or even a $3,800 breast reduction.

Another popular treatment is known as Ambrosia, where the patient’s blood is transfused with the blood of 16 to 25-year-olds.
