Just as the world continues to evolve, so does the field of plastic surgery and medical aesthetics. One way is that more men are discovering the benefits that come from taking care of their appearance. The attitude around skincare for men has come a long way in recent years.
It is not uncommon to see male patients at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery. These days, there’s a lot more acceptance around wrinkle treatment and plastic surgery for men. Men are electing to use the same injectable fillers that are historically popular among women. They use PRP for hair loss, instead of the “vampire facial” many women love so much. Many men are even opting for “Brotox” or “Guybella.”
Skincare advertising campaigns are often directed towards women, yet preventative skincare is just as important for men. While most men may have learned lessons in shaving from Dad or Grandpa, some men may not have been taught to moisturize and wear sunscreen to minimize the damage caused by day-to-day stressors like sun, wind, and pollution. Over time, that damage gives way to fine lines and deep wrinkles.
Botox is not just for the ladies. Since 2010, there’s been a 20% increase in male cosmetic procedures, with the number of men getting Botox jumping 27% during that time. Botulinum toxin injections remain the number one cosmetic procedure for men, with 473,354 administered in 2019 alone — a 5% increase from 2018 and a 403% increase from 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The board-certified specialists at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery are accustomed to treating first-time male Botox clients. Our experienced providers see many men who become loyal, repeat visitors! This treatment is effective, and best of all, subtle. Lori Lankford and Paige Hastings are two of the best nurse practitioners in the business. No frozen faces! They know just how much Botox to administer and where to administer it for a youthful and natural-looking appearance.
Maybe you’ve heard about Kybella, one of the most buzzed-about cosmetic treatments on the market. This FDA-approved injectable is the first and only treatment that physically destroys fat deposits under the chin – also known as submental fullness or “double chin.” Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
As we age, things can go south. Facial fat can migrate from your full, apple-shaped cheeks downward to your chin. This can make you appear heavier or older than you are. Kybella is non-surgical and non-invasive, with rapid recovery and minimal side effects. Many men may opt for a Kybella treatment, as it can help with confidence and self-perception. This treatment, in our opinion, is superior and has replaced older methods, such as Lipodissolve and Mesotherapy. Our expert nurse practitioners can help patients achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of! Call Dr. Wendel’s office and schedule your Guybella consultation today!
Gone are the notions of John Wayne-style manliness. The modern man knows he doesn’t have to suffer in silence as age takes its toll. Smart men know they can cut the grief and eliminate those last few extra pounds with liposuction. Male breast reduction can be a big confidence booster. A facelift or eyelid surgery can make older businessmen feel more confident and competitive at work.
Consider giving the main man in your life the gift of enhancement. Whether that’s some simple skincare or cosmetic treatment, let your dad, husband, or boyfriend know that you understand how hard he works. Maybe that means treating him to a simple regimen that includes a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen: 3 essentials that take a couple of minutes to apply but can make a world of difference. After all, he deserves some rejuvenation, too. Or maybe it means scheduling a consultation for Brotox or Guybella. Whatever it may be, with Dr. Wendel’s expert team, he’ll be in the best hands.
