cosmetic procedures for men
Although the same products and devices are available for both men and women, the injection techniques differ substantially in order to preserve the masculine features of the male face.
For example, men tend to have a low-set and flat brow configuration as opposed to women who have a natural lateral brow arch. In order to preserve the flat brow shape in men, Botox is injected in a special pattern that does not raise the tail of the brow, a desirable effect in women.
Men also have a more square shaped face with a stronger and more defined jaw angle. For this reason, fillers (hyaluronic acid) are injected predominantly in the lower part of the male face (jawline and chin) as opposed to the midface (cheeks) and upper face (temples) in women.
In a similar manner, cosmetic facial surgery in men has a different focus than in women. Men have less need for volume augmentation with autologous fat injections because they have less cheek fullness to start with. In addition, a brow lift in men is typically done using a procedure that preserves the flat brow configuration such as the Corrugator removal or the endoscopic forehead lift. Lower facelift in men is also primarily focused on the neck and redefining the jawline.
