The days when it was considered bold for an aging businessman to dye his hair to retain a youthful aura are long gone. More men trying to get ahead at the workplace are turning to plastic surgeons for surgical and non-surgical solutions, especially in the youth-driven tech industry. We are seeing more men in their 40s and 50s who want plastic surgery travel to our center of excellence from Santa Rosa to Silicon Valley.
There are several treatments that can help men maintain a vigorous appearance, including a new generation of dermal fillers that are great for those who would rather avoid a surgical procedure. A recent article in The New York Times pointed out that non-surgical treatments to help create a more prominent jawline are among the most popular procedures for men.
Here are some of the procedures men are getting most at Plastic Surgery Specialists:
- Chin implants and chin contouring: There’s the non-surgical route using dermal fillers, and there are chin implants that make the whole lower face look stronger with a relatively quick and easy surgery. One researcher found that a prominent chin is common among most CEOs.
- Injectables: As noted above, fillers and neurotoxins, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, are often favored by men looking to erase wrinkles because they get results without downtime. An executive who schedules an afternoon appointment doesn’t need to do any explaining come the next morning.
- Liposuction & CoolSculpting®: Even active men are plagued by belly fat and love handles. Both liposuction and CoolSculpting, a non-invasive procedure that chills fat cells to destroy them, are discreet body contouring options. Liposuction is also favored by men with excess neck fat who want a sharply defined jaw.
- Male breast reduction: This specialized procedure to treat gynecomastia is more common than most people realize, with thousands of men who are self-conscious about excess fatty tissue in their chests opting for reduction surgery each year.
As more treatments become available, we expect to see even more men coming in for cosmetic enhancement. Are you a man who has had something done, or do you know one who has? Share your story in the comments.
