Most people are familiar with a Mommy Makeover, but what about a “Daddy Do Over”? At our Naples practice, we have seen a significant increase in the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures over the last several years. From non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® and Restylane® to surgical treatments, men are becoming a larger part of the plastic surgery market. More than 1.3 million cosmetic treatments were performed on men in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This represents a 29% increase over the last two decades.
Many women choose to have surgery after having children to tighten stomach muscles and lift and augment the breasts. While men don’t experience the same physical changes of childbirth, often they experience lifestyle changes. They may find themselves visiting the gym less often and sleeping less. These changes can affect their physical appearance. As a result, men are more commonly turning to cosmetic procedures, the Daddy Do Over, to feel rejuvenated.
A recent study performed by Georgetown University found that men who had facial plastic surgery were more likely to be rated as attractive, likable, social, and trustworthy, when comparing the photos of the men before and after their cosmetic procedures. With advances in both surgical and non-surgical procedures, men have many options. Small changes can help our male patients feel rejuvenated and refreshed. These treatments also help men feel more confident and youthful in constantly shifting work environments. Men have more options than ever before, including:
- BOTOX to smooth frown lines
- Fillers to soften smile lines
- Brow lift or neck lift to tighten lax skin and tissues (see patient photos)
Even simple changes such as a skincare routine can have a significant effect on creating a natural, dignified appearance.
It is vital to select a provider who is skilled in treating men because men’s concerns and anatomy differ from women’s. We understand the ideal proportions and angles of the male face, helping our patients to experience natural, rejuvenated results without the risk of feminizing their faces. We also help guide our male patients to select the treatment that best fits their aesthetic goals and lifestyle.
