Cosmetic Surgery for the Aging Man
Although aging is an issue most often discussed among and for women, men are not immune to the pressure to remain young. Women are constantly faced with images of youthful beauty and perfection in the media and in everyday life. Less obvious, however, is the pressure faced by men. Increasingly, men are inundated with similar images of perfect, perpetually fit and masculine males, and more and more of them are going under the knife to maintain their youthful vigor.
Facelifts have become increasingly popular for aging men. Facelift procedures treat sagging skin and soft tissue of the lower and mid face. This can be helpful for men in maintaining a strong and defined jawline, which is often considered a mark of masculinity. A smoother, tighter facial appearance and defined jawline are often considered hallmarks of male perfection.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is also very common among men. Just as with women, men’s aging eyes may begin to appear saggy and tired. Eyelid surgery can remove the extra skin that creates a hood over the eye, making them appear more open and alert. Eyelid surgery can also help reduce wrinkles around the eyes, reducing the need over time for repeated treatments with fillers or other temporary solutions.
Men also are using minimally invasive measures such as Botox or dermal fillers. Since there is still a great deal of stigma against men undergoing cosmetic surgery, men are often looking for procedures they can easily hide, and ones that have a limited recovery time. Botox and fillers are a perfect option as they are simple, generally painless, and have no recovery time. When used subtly, you will achieve a more youthful appearance that others may not even notice other than to remark on how great you’re looking lately!
