Plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments have often been seen as something only women participate in. Well that is no longer the case. More and more men are beginning to embrace the advancements of cosmetic procedures. They are using these treatments to help them appear younger and more refreshed.
Over the past decade the number of men undergoing cosmetic procedures has more than tripled. Many cosmetic treatment centers are even becoming more “male friendly.” Keeping their design elements more gender neutral and bringing leather chairs with larger televisions into their lobbies.
Why such an influx in the past few years? Many men see these treatments as a part of keeping up a healthy lifestyle. Some comparing it to keeping a fitness routine and maintain a healthy diet, but there is even more to it than that.
Why Are More Men Having Cosmetic Procedures?
According to news outlets from across the country, men are having plastic surgery and facial treatments like never before. They are willing to go under the knife (or needle) to achieve chiseled jawlines, decrease signs of aging, and rejuvenate their once full hairline. Men are taking more action to help them look their best, no matter their age.
What is the reason for more men undergoing procedures now than before? Many men say that it is to keep up in the workplace. More individuals are deciding to work into their later years, including men. In order to stay in the competition with younger coworkers, men are turning to cosmetic treatments. They do not want to be undesired professionally due to their appearance of age.
Men are looking to appear younger to enhance their career potential and not for their personal concerns or to find love. In offices that deal with technology or working with clients, it is especially important for many men to appear their best, and most youthful. They believe looking younger gives more confidence that they are up to date with what is new on the market.
Many cosmetic treatment offices have noticed that most men are looking for treatments that will provide great results, with little downtime. This makes dermal fillers and Botox an appealing option. It is important that when choosing a facility for your facial treatments, that your doctor has extensive experience working with men, such as Dr. Sinha. Men’s skin is typically much thicker than women’s, making it not as responsive to dermal fillers. This will provide you with the best results.
Male Facial Treatments
- Botox (Brotox)
Botox for men has been loving nicknamed, Brotox. It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatment that men are undergoing. This is due to how quick each treatment session is and the lack of downtime following. Botox is a noninvasive injectable that reduces the signs of aging. It works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox is often used between the eyebrows, forehead, and corner of the eyes. This results in a smoother and more youthful appearance. Botox may also be used as a preventative measure. If signs of aging have not appeared yet, it can help keep wrinkles from appearing. Results for each treatment can last between four and six months.
Juvederm is a type of hyaluronic acid, naturally found in skin, filler used to increase volume in various areas of the face. It is typically used in the jawline, cheeks, temples and lips. Juvederm can also be used to fill to wrinkles and fine lines. This is another in office procedure that is performed quickly with no downtime, making it very popular among men. As you age, your face often begins to lose volume. Areas of your face may also begin to appear more hollow after significant weight loss.
Kybella is another injectable that is used by many men to help them achieve a more youthful appearance. This cosmetic treatment helps to get rid of excess fat in the submental area, or double chin, helping to give patients a more defined jawline. This injection works differently than Botox and Juvederm, as results are gradual. Kybella imitates deoxycholic acid, a natural acid found in the body that metabolizes fat cells. Reducing fat in the chin helps to give men a leaner and more masculine jawline.
Male Plastic Surgery
- Hair Transplant
A rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, can make a very big difference in the appearance of a patient’s face. This procedure can add more proportion and balance to the face and help patients look more youthful. Whether you are unhappy with the nose you were born with, or you want to correct any damage that has been done due to an injury, rhinoplasty can help you achieve that.
Rhinoplasty is performed under anesthesia and is more invasive than a filler or Botox. Although rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, most patients find it very easy to recover from. It requires a lot of rest to achieve optimal results.
Having an experienced and artistic surgeon perform a rhinoplasty will provide you with the best results. Dr. Sinha received the Best Rhinoplasty in Jezebel as a part of their Best of Atlanta Awards 2018. This is just more proof of the great results each of his patients receive. He provides both female and male patients with exceptional care.
