Men are more concerned about their appearance than ever before, and there’s a growing level of acceptance that cosmetic procedures are just a part of modern life. The stigma for men considering cosmetic procedures is fading, but it isn’t gone yet.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery keeps stats that indicate at least 1.2 million cosmetic procedures are performed on men each year – a number that’s steadily rising. The organization began keeping statistics in 1997, and the number of men having procedures has more than tripled since then. At least 10 percent of all cosmetic procedures are on men – and yes, that number is growing as well.
If your medical or dental office provides cosmetic procedures, there’s even better news. A survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery found that more than a third of men are “extremely likely” to consider a cosmetic procedure in the future, including Botox and other injectables. The reasons given for considering a procedure include feeling more confident, looking younger and staying competitive in their careers.
Today, some cosmetic surgeons are offering clinics solely for male clients – so that there won’t be any women patients to see them as they have work done. These centers promise the highest level of care of physicians specially trained to work on men.
Where injectables are concerned, there are some differences between how men and women and treated. Men often require larger Botox does than women for the same effect because their facial muscles are larger – but individualized treatment is necessary because this is not always the case.
In addition to injectables and surgery, men sometimes turn to aesthetics clinics for chemical peels, liposuction and more. Some centers even offer penile enhancement and other male-specific services at the same location. Other procedures men may have include eye lifts, breast reductions, tummy tucks and even full facelifts.
In some cases, men are more squeamish about having surgery than women. That means they’re perfect candidates for Botox and other injectables, which don’t require surgery. Men often don’t want long down times or time away from work either. But injectables can be administered quickly in the office, then the patient can go back to work right away with no or very little bruising or swelling.
Men also frequently turn to Botox for excessive sweating, jaw clenching from stress and other therapeutic purposes. They may choose to go to a special clinic for these procedures or have the treatment performed by their regular doctor or dentist as part of a scheduled visit.
