The latest statistics released from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) show a significant increase in men having cosmetic surgery procedures. With a 43 percent increase in male plastic surgery patients over the past five years, this trend is just gaining speed, without an end in sight. What procedures are the most popular among the male clientele? Botox injections. In fact, there has been a 310 percent increase in men having Botox over the last decade. So many men use Botox to smooth lines and wrinkles on their face that the term “Brotox” was coined to describe this phenomenon.
At SGK Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sugene Kim provides Botox treatments for both male and female clientele. Find out why so many men are turning to Botox to achieve a younger appearance.
To Gain the Lead in a Competitive Job Market
In today’s tough economy, an increasing number of people are looking for work. According to the latest information released by the U.S. Department of Labor, there are approximately 7.9 million unemployed Americans. Among that number is a growing population of people 55 and older but looking for work. Some of the men in this group have used Botox to make them look younger, feeling that it will also make them more relevant in a job market where they are competing with younger people for jobs.
To Supplement a Healthy Lifestyle
Men in their 30s, 40s and 50s who adhere to a healthy lifestyle by watching what they eat and exercising regularly are often conscious of how these habits make them look and feel younger. What better way to supplement these healthy habits than by further enhancing their fit physiques with a younger-looking face? Botox, an injectable treatment that smoothes out fine lines (e.g., the “crow’s feet” around the eyes) and the deep furrows on the forehead, achieves nearly instant results that last four to six months.
To Look Younger without Surgery
True, there are many plastic surgery procedures (such as a facelift) that will achieve a younger-looking face, but many men don’t want to commit to an invasive surgery with a long recovery. Botox injections require no incisions, are administered in a 20-minute office visit and require zero downtime afterwards. A lot of men love the fact that they can start looking younger instantly, and can do so in the span of a lunch hour or a trip to the plastic surgery office after work or on their way home from the gym.
