Increasingly, men have begun to realize that a youthful appearance can be key to professional and social success. When aging, genetics and even gravity conspire to put this goal out of reach, a noninvasive cosmetic procedure can make all the difference in the world.
Here, experienced Virginia Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bounds reviews the expanding array of non-surgical options for men seeking a new look or renewed confidence.
For many men, the reasons for seeking cosmetic solutions are based on real-world calculations. For men in business, a youthful appearance can mean staying competitive with younger colleagues. Social benefits are important as well. A lean, revitalized look can open the door to exciting new relationships and opportunities.
Achieving this new look no longer necessarily means choosing a surgical procedure. New types of dermal fillers build facial volume, smooth fine lines, improve deep wrinkles, soften contours and add symmetry to any complexion.
Dermal fillers often require a single injection, administered during a convenient office visit, and are effective for six months to a year or longer. Juvederm, Restylane and Revance are especially recommended by Dr. Bounds to add fullness and vitality to your facial appearance.
Meanwhile, neuromodulator-type medications such as Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport and Xeomin,are as popular as ever. In fact, according to a survey by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 7.69 million Botox injections in 2019, the highest number on record. Dermal fillers were next with 2.72 million procedures, and chemical peels at 1.38 million.
The ASPS survey also found that men and women alike are increasingly likely to seek injections of dermal fillers before choosing surgical options. For example, many use dermal fillers to make subtle changes to the face before choosing a facelift or neck lift. And these injectables are often a first choice to improve the appearance of skin around the eyes before blepharoplasty or brow lift is considered.
