I believe that every aesthetics doctor can agree that the faster growing group of cosmetic surgery patients is men. In the US, data shows that since 1997, there has been a 273% increase in the number of procedures performed on men.
At Medi-Sculpt, we are seeing more male patients interested in facial surgeries (facelift and eyes). A lot of men tell us that the frown lines between their eyes have become a permanent feature, and even though they are not, people often tell them that they look permanently stressed or stern.
Traditionally men’s aging is more gradual and also more accepted that women’s. Their wrinkles are referred to character lines and their grey hair makes them look more distinguished. But what happens when they reach an age when those lines deepen, when they develop droopy eyelids, their hair thins or that strong rugged jawline now softens? What about feeling guilty about drinking a cold beer or enjoying their favorite bacon and egg breakfast when fat rolls start shaping on their bellies? They loose their sense of self and their self-esteem decreases. Nowadays, most men take as much pride in their physique as women do, and we should not underestimate the impact it has on their state of mind and ambition. A group of men that is more prone to book a non-surgical procedure is the highly driven male corporates. They enjoy the feeling of having control over their appearance, as well as their careers. Not only do these men embrace aesthetic treatments, but usually have no qualms talking about it.
There is a lot that a man can do to get to that rugged aesthetic without ever compromising on his masculinity. We specialise in providing subtle, natural results so that your family and friends will just comment how well you look, rather than “what have you had done?!”. For example, Botox and fillers can offer tremendous improvements with minimal downtime. The results of cosmetic surgery procedures are often subtle – perfect for treating those stubborn wrinkles and droopy eyes.
The five most popular male cosmetic treatments at Medi-Sculpt:
- Botulinum toxin to soften frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet
- Chemical peels to reduce pore size, treat oily and rough skin and give you a healthy looking complexion
- Dermal Fillers to reduce the appearance of nose to mouth lines
- Dermal Fillers to add volume to the chin and cheeks
- Thermavein to reduce facial redness and veins on the face
Non-surgical procedures can’t cure bad habits or bad living. But it can help tackle the effects of anti-aging. At Medi-Sculpt we are aware that male aesthetics is its own category, and that a little gentleman grooming in the right hands can go a long way.
