We all know how different men and women can be in a lot ways and it’s no different when it comes to Botox. While women strive to be as wrinkle-free as possibly, men do not. Most men want to maintain a certain amount of wrinkles to keep their rugged edge but do desire a more youthful, rested result from botox and other cosmetic injectibles.
This look with Botox for men has been dubbed by a New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Rowe, as the “Wall Street Wrinkle”. The name, he said, comes from the high percentage of male patients who work in finance. “They really want to avoid looking overdone.”
He goes on to say that many of his male patients feel that a certain amount of wrinkles are somewhat of a “badge of honor” that they want to maintain. Men fear too much botox will be obvious to others and make them appear irresponsible.
Surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more common for men in the United States. Botox remains the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure among men with a 310% increase since the year 2000. The top surgical procedure among men is rhinoplasty surgery with eyelid and facelift surgery close behind.
Though far from Wall Street, Dr. Thompson has seen in large increase in male cosmetic patient in recent years. Younger male patients typically consult with Dr. Thompson for rhinoplasty surgery while middle age and older men come for Botox and/or dermal fillers and often facelift surgery.
