I know I’ve missed the window of opportunity for you to give the men in your life a skin treatment or cosmetic procedure as a gift specifically for Father’s Day. But as far as I’m concerned, the whole month of June is about celebrating the men in our lives – the dads and grandads, the sons and brothers, uncles and friends. So, treat your man to a self-care gift any time throughout the month. This kind of gift is perfect for birthdays and holidays, too.
Cosmetic Procedures and Men: More Men Are More Receptive To Cosmetic Procedures Than Ever Before
The great news is that more men are seeking help from plastic surgeons to enhance their looks and build confidence than ever before. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, “more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2017 alone.”
Whether it’s getting rid of a double chin, lifting drooping eyelids, removing under eye bags or reshaping a nose, for so many men, just having a procedure on an area of their body that they’re self-conscious about can really make a positive impact on how they see themselves.
Start With Skin Care for Men
Many men who might at first be reluctant to have a surgical procedure will benefit from a skin care treatment. Learning to protect their skin with sunscreen and learning to properly clean and moisturize is a great first step for many men.
Young, Middle-Age And Older Men
The young men of the millennial generation have certainly paved the way in terms of making more men comfortable with cosmetic procedures. The men and women of the Baby Boomer generation paved the way for them by staying healthier through better eating and exercise. After all they are the generation that has inspired the saying that “60 is the new 40.” And since many of the men in this generation are staying in their careers longer, they are exploring cosmetic procedures to help them look their best. A procedure that results in a refreshed more youthful look can be a huge boost in a man’s confidence.
The trend seems to be that young men focus on enhancing their bodies while older men are having more minimally-invasive procedures to take years off of their faces. Grandpa and grandma are certainly not relegated to the rocking chair anymore. Grandpa may be the one to introduce his son or grandson to the importance of a healthy skincare routine. I’m not suggesting that men will be standing around the barbeque grill or the locker room discussing their cosmetic procedures or skincare routines the way women do. But men are realizing the benefits, taking advantage of them, and sharing the healthy benefits at least with their sons and grandsons.
Choose A Board-Certified Surgeon For All Procedures
Whether you are gifting your man with a surgical or non-surgical treatment such as BOTOX, always work with a Board-Certified surgeon. You’ll be ensured of the most rigorous safety and ethical standards. And because of the extensive training that board-certified surgeons go through, you can be more confident that he or she is the most qualified and can offer a wide range of options to meet the specific goals of each individual.
