We live in a culture where youth and beauty are prized — even for men.
In the recent past, we have seen an increasing number of men here at Houston Oculofacial Plastic surgery seeking cosmetic enhancements, both surgical and non-surgical. No longer is plastic surgery reserved for women, men are also finding the benefits of these procedures for their appearance and overall well-being.
Many men are discovering that facial plastic surgery can help them look as good as they feel – and perhaps give them a competitive edge in the job market.
What a Man Wants??
Maintaining a positive self-image!
In a society where 78% of working men believe that personal appearance influences whether one is promoted or succeeds, it is not surprising to see this rise in cosmetic surgery. From staying competitive in today’s job market, to actively working on improving or maintaining their appearance, men are discovering that cosmetic procedures can be an investment in their self-esteem and their futures. Some younger individuals view these cosmetic procedures as a way to enhance and thus prevent signs of aging before they become a concern.
Some of the top cosmetic procedures for men include eyelid surgery/lift, botox, dermal fillers, facial and neck contouring, laser hair removal and laser resurfacing and skin rejuvenation.
Eyelid surgery in the form of upper or lower lid blepharoplasty can not only reverse the ageing signs of heavy and droopy eyelids but can also enhance the facial features, creating a more refreshed, vibrant and vital look.
Botox can help decrease lines and wrinkles around the forehead, frown lines, crows’ feet and even help with droopy brows and eyelids.
Dermal fillers are a great, noninvasive way to enhance the jawline, cheekbones and chin as well as correct imperfections in the nasal bridge.
Kybella is a new and novel injectable treatment for achieving chemical lipolysis or reduction in fat for the “double chin” area.
Skin care is another vital area that men are beginning to pay attention to. It is important to heed the warnings of sun protection as this can help prevent skin cancer. Also, sun protection can decrease photoaging, lines and wrinkles. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended for all men. In addition, skin care products can help with development of wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation and breakouts. Laser resurfacing is a very popular tool to reverse the signs of aging.
