A growing trend in aesthetic therapy is that more and more male patients are seeking cosmetic facial improvement and anti-aging solutions. It has become more acceptable in our society for men to seek out anti-aging remedies and facial plastic surgery. Our practice treats men of all ages for a variety of skin conditions and cosmetic concerns. In some cases, job insecurity fuels a man’s interest in cosmetic surgery. It’s a tough job market out there, so men want to look better and younger, less tired, and more alert. They don’t want drooping jowls or eyes. On the other hand, many of our male patients are successful businessmen who have accomplished a lot and don’t feel threatened by younger men in the workforce. They’re successful, and they don’t have to prove anything; they just want to look good. Dr. Edward J. Gross frequently performs facial cosmetic surgery to help men from Orlando, FL, and other local cities, such as Winter Park, Daytona Beach, Tampa, and Melbourne, look and feel their best.

A small but growing group of middle-aged men is choosing to hold back the relentless march of time with facial plastic surgery. In Orlando and surrounding areas, men commonly seek procedures such as a facelift or neck lift to gain a more youthful neckline and tighten a sagging face and jawline.

“In ever-competitive job and dating markets, looking and feeling your best is important. Men of all ages are finally embracing the idea of looking good and taking care of their faces.”

Ear pinning (otoplasty) has also become more prevalent as shorter hairstyles have risen in popularity, making it difficult for some men to cover protruding ears.
Another emerging trend is for men to get more non-surgical therapy to improve the skin tone and texture, to reduce frown lines, and to fill depressions around the mouth. The biggest increase has been in minimally invasive procedures, primarily BOTOX® Cosmetic and soft tissue fillers. Men are also seeking more chemical peels and laser treatments in pursuit of a youthful look.

“Men also tell surgeons they don’t want a drastic change in appearance, just enough to make them look better. For the most part, they don’t want to go from 60 to 30; they go for the subtle look. They want natural.”
– Dr. Gross
