Forget the Gucci tie or the Rolex watch. What men are hoping for on gift-giving occasions is a square jaw, and the women who love them are thrilled to know that giving them one is easier than ever. Ultherapy is one of the most successful of several new non-surgical, non-invasive procedures that have been developed in recent times for the purpose of lifting and toning skin at the neck and jaw (as well as other areas of the face and body). Women came to appreciate the many advantages of Ultherapy Non-surgical Facelift right away, and now it is looking like it will be the hot new trend among men as well. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural tissue beneath the skin. One short painless appointment can jumpstart the collagen-generating process, which can then continue on its own for a number of months. The changes are not so drastic so as to be off putting to men who are shy about letting their co-workers know they care about how they look. But the results will make them appear more rested and more youthful, and they will regain something of that defined jaw line that has long been seen as the hallmark of masculinity.
But Ultherapy is only the beginning. There are a number of jaw-defining plastic surgery trends out there to satisfy the range of men currently considering their options. The jaw tightens automatically when excess fat is removed from the neck via Ultrasonic Liposuction, a procedure that works best on men with heavy necks but good skin elasticity. The Neck Liposuction process actually sculpts the neck, and the results can be fairly dramatic.
Even more profound are the changes that can be achieved with facial surgery for men, such as Chin Implants. Through this form of jaw surgery, the proportions of the face can be easily (and permanently) altered. Thus, a man with a prominent nose and weak chin can rebalance his facial features, so that the jaw is broader and more masculine, and the nose appears less obtrusive—even though it hasn’t been touched.
Jaw surgery, Liposuction and ultrasound procedures are only a few of the many cosmetic treatments that men are exploring as they come to terms with the fact that no matter how hard they exercise, an aging jaw line will not tighten up on its own. A square jaw suggests confidence, earnestness and vigor. It can give men a leg up on the competition in the workplace—and in social settings as well. And now, thanks to the combination of elite plastic surgery technologies and a more tolerant society that has become as generous to men as to women, every man has the opportunity to empower himself by looking as good as he feels.
