Consider it the rise of “Bro-tox”. According to Boston-based plastic surgeon Sean Doherty, MD, more male clients than ever are coming into his practices for cosmetic procedures, with facial fillers and Botox numbering among the most popular requests.
It’s not just a Boston-area phenomenon. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that men represent 10% of all cosmetic treatments.
One word of caution: many plastic surgeons may not understand how different treatments can affect men vs. women, especially with regards to Botox and fillers.
“Men have larger and stronger facial muscles so they often need more Botox to have an effect, but I need to make sure I just smooth out the lines and don’t over shape the brow,” says board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Doherty. “Male patients should ensure that they’re working with a plastic surgeon who understands how to achieve the subtle differences they’re looking for.”
For many men, the decision to have plastic surgery can vary across the board. Many men are looking for a competitive edge by looking younger and more refreshed. In addition to facial fillers and Botox, Kybella (a double-chin dissolving treatment), liposuction, and rhinoplasty can help achieve these results.
Additionally, Dr. Doherty is one of a few plastic surgeons to offer the Daddy Do-Over treatment. Much like the Mommy Makeover, the Daddy Do-Over focuses on achieving a more youthful-looking body. The Daddy Do-Over can focus on removing chest and abdominal fat, as well as using facial fillers and Botox treatments to achieve a younger-looking face.
Dr. Doherty is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Doherty has two plastic surgery practices, both of which are located in the greater metro Boston area. His original practice is located in Concord, MA, and his newest location can be found on Newbury Street in Boston.
