Is there an advantage for men to having facial cosmetic procedures?


We are all pretty much aware that women do plastic surgery procedures, but just as many men are walking into our offices as well. Although many have come into our office with a spouse, just as many men come without the gentle push from a partner.

Recently we are seeing more male patients for body contouring procedures with CoolSculpting® or even liposuction for love- handles, muffin tops, male chest reduction and even double chins. There's really very little, OR NO downtime and the results are impressive. However, we see more and more men now requesting facial rejuvenation.

Men want to feel better about their self-image, just like women. And, let's face it, no gym workout is going to get rid of facial wrinkles or fat pads around the eyes. For some, the quick fixes with facial injectables around the brow, eyes or nasal folds, can be enough. When those are not enough, our patients will choose to do facial surgery with a tuck of the neck or jowls, or eyelid lift for heavy bags around the eyes.

We often call these improvements the, 'The Executive Makeover,' as some seek cosmetic improvements for that extra advantage in the business world (or even dating world) as they often compete or socialize among a group of younger candidates. Whatever the reason, however, the trend has hit and more of our male community are paying attention to how they look and age --- just as women have been doing for years! As we always say, "Why not look as good as you feel?!"
