Cary, North Carolina Plastic Surgeon Sees Dramatic Increase in Men Seeking Out Botox® and Plastic Surgery Procedures

As more men strive to look younger to keep their jobs and feel better, they are seeking out treatments to achieve this. Wake Plastic Surgery of Cary, NC has seen a 20% increase in the number of males having cosmetic procedures such as Botox®.

Cary, North Carolina based Wake Plastic Surgery has seen a 20% increase in the number of male patients having cosmetic procedures and treatments such as Botox® since 2009.

Male skin care is now one of the fastest growing sectors within the beauty industry. One reason more men have turned to plastic surgeon, William T. Stoeckel of Wake Plastic Surgery, is the need to maximize their potential in the job market. More young people are seeking higher level jobs that were historically dominated by 40 and 50-somethings. Many men are turning to treatments to help them look younger and more refreshed to remain competitive in today's over-saturated job market.

"Many of my male patients are part of the sales, advertising or retail industries and tell me that looking young and refreshed continues to be critical for their line of work," Stoeckel said of his cosmetic procedure business. "Others simply want to look and feel their best and Botox® is a subtle but real way of helping make that happen."

Michael, a Wake Plastic Surgery patient, agrees, "I am a man and I want to look good. Who wouldn't want to look younger? Looking good helps me feel good about myself, and I do this for me and no one else."

Botox® isn't the only treatment men are seeking out to improve their appearance. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), more than 800,000 procedures were performed on men in 2011. The most common procedures performed on men at Wake Plastic Surgery are gynecomastia (male breast reduction) and liposuction.

Regardless of whether men are seeking out plastic surgery or non-surgical treatments such as Botox®, it is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon prior to undergoing any treatment. The experience and knowledge of these qualified individuals can make a significant impact on the results experienced by their patients.
