Brotox®: The Men & Botox® Combo

Botox® has many fans these days. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported over 6.5 million Botox® treatments performed in 2015 alone. While these statistics don’t break down the differences between male and female patients, I can attest to the increase in men getting Botox® from my own experience. In the spirit of giving popular trends nicknames, Brotox® is what we use to describe men who are fans of facial rejuvenation with minimally-invasive wrinkle-reducing Botox® treatment. In case you’re new to the Brotox world, I wanted to share some of the best features and why more men should jump on the benefits of Botox®.

In more recent trends, men aren’t just getting Botox® by themselves. Many come to get treatments with their partners (male and female), friends, and even coworkers. Lots of men receive Botox® as gifts and even more appreciate the results especially in those times when preparing for major life events – like getting married. Pre-wedding Botox® has become a popular treatment for two, because couples like to come in together to smooth out their facial appearance before the big day.

Botox® treatment isn’t as intimidating as some may think – it’s just a quick, short series of injections into the upper third area of the face you’re most concerned about and nearly painless. You’re in and out in as little as 20 minutes and best of all – you don’t have to miss work or have the rest of your day interrupted. Botox® is also a great combination treatment used to keep the face looking youthful after undergoing facial plastic surgery. Whether prepping for a special occasion or sticking to a regular routine, Botox® treatments are popular because they continue to work for lots of men and woman for up to four months (it’s also worth mentioning it’s FDA-approved for ages 18-65).

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the many nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures men have come to know and appreciate. Muscle-relaxing Dysport® and Xeomin®, plus dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® offer some excellent benefits of their own – so much so that they deserve their own time in the spotlight. Check back in the upcoming weeks as we explore these options in part two of our male rejuvenation series and if you’d like to learn more about Botox® treatments at Southern Plastic Surgery, or would like to schedule a complimentary consultation, don’t hesitate to call us at 770-622-9100.

Say Hello to Summer Plastic Surgery & Skincare Savings

Skincare and plastic surgery don’t discriminate – it’s all inclusive to men and women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and races. I have noticed that more men, in particular, are discovering the great benefits of cosmetic procedures. They’re joining their spouses to try the latest skincare treatments because they too want to improve their self-image and achieve their goals with the help of plastic surgery procedures like male breast reduction, liposuction, eyelid surgery, and facelifts (to name the top five). There are numerous different motivations for why men elective to undergo cosmetic procedures, but at the very core, improving their self-confidence, achieving the look that best compliments them, being competitive in business, and generally just feeling better about their reflection in the mirror resonate with my male patients. In honor of Father’s Day this month, Southern Plastic Surgery and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center are featuring special savings on laser treatments, skincare, and more that you and the special men in your life can enjoy.

Restoring Youthfulness with Facelift Procedures

Facelift patients I’ve worked with in the past have told me their friends and family would be surprised of their decision to get cosmetic surgery.  When I asked why, they’ve shared “because they think I’m too young.” Age is an identifier but take into account that we all mature differently. One woman in her 60s can have the appearance of a 40 year old and a man in his mid-30s can have the appearance of a male in his early 50s. Genetics, lifestyle, and every day environmental factors contribute to how our skin ages and for some people, they experience those tell-tale signs of aging much faster than others. For this reason, I wanted to remind everyone that plastic surgery is a personal and unique experience for each individual. Age is only one way to evaluate it. When it comes to achieving the look that will truly make you happy, a facelift procedure may just be your calling.

As we get older, our faces evolve from being angular to a more squared off appearance. If you think about it, youth is about fullness and aging is about emptiness. The collagen starts to break down and the skin’s elasticity diminishes, the skin on the face appears to sag – creating deep wrinkles (like jowls), droopy eyelids, and more. It’s not only a case of genetics that is responsible, but spending lots of time outside in the sun, tanning beds, poor diet and exercise, and smoking are some of the other contributing factors that wear down our appearance. Cosmetic injectables, like facial fillers and Botox®, offer temporary relief for wrinkles, thinned lips, sunken cheeks, etc., but some men and women prefer to take advantage of the long-lasting results of facelifts.

Here are a few key points to facelift procedures that I perform at Southern Plastic Surgery:

There are in reality two different facelift options: mini facelift (rapid recovery lift) and full facelift. A mini facelift is for the patient with early signs of aging (and haven’t experienced major skin laxity yet) in the lower third part of the face (neck, mid-face area, and jowls more specifically). Full facelifts address the eye and brow area, so patients who are really going for the full rejuvenation package often need to combine their facelift with these procedures to achieve optimal results. Facelifts of either kind can be helpful for both men and women and is even an integral component to the comprehensive combination Grammy Makeover procedure which consists of face, breast, hand, and body contouring procedures.

Patients often complement their results with the help of nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedures laser treatments at Laser Lights or injectables to prolong their results – not that this is mandatory for facelift candidates, but many like to stay on top of their skincare and add these types of procedures to their regular routine.
