Beauty is not a term that is reserved for women. So much of what exists in nature can be described as beautiful; why should we exclude masculine characteristics? According to statistics, many more men are taking ques from their female friends and loved ones and attending to their own cosmetic concerns. According to the American Academy for Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, 31 percent of men say they are “extremely likely” to consider undergoing a cosmetic procedure to feel better about their appearance.
Why are more men seeking cosmetic treatments? There could be several reasons. First and foremost, men have always shared the same desire women have for looking and feeling their best. Only now are men more able to express this desire. To help matters, we also now have numerous non-surgical approaches to cosmetic concerns than we did just a few decades ago. The fact that a man can go to an experienced clinician and walk out looking a few years younger after a few injections suits many patients quite well.
Today, we have Brotox, Daddy do-overs, and more. These terms represent a significant change in the conversation about how we approach appearance and aging. According to many cosmetic providers, men are some of the most enthusiastic and loyal patients, especially for injectable treatments. As it should be, manufacturers have developed injectable solutions that work equally well for both genders. For example, Kybella and CoolSculpting achieve outstanding fat-reducing benefits for men and women. Radiesse is an example of an excellent dermal filler for men due to the viscosity that integrates well with thicker skin.
Facial aging is not the only area of beauty that suits men. Recent research also indicates that men are showing interest in body contouring. Statistics show that minimally-invasive liposuction techniques and non-invasive body contouring such as CoolSculpting provide men with the advantages and the results they want. Modern techniques are commonly used to sculpt the abdominal contours and eliminate excess breast tissue. Aside from results, the aspect of these treatments that men like most is that they can resume normal activities right away.
