More Men Seeking Cosmetic Treatment

More Men Seeking Cosmetic Treatment

Facial plastic surgeons around the country, including Dr. Michael McCracken of McCracken Eye and Face Institute, have noticed an uptick in men requesting cosmetic treatment. Dr. McCracken is pleased to serve men (and women) throughout the Denver areas seeing a rejuvenated appearance and a boost in confidence; he offers a variety of procedures to help everyone achieve their desired results. Here, the doctor discusses the rise in men seeking cosmetic treatment.

Motivations for Seeking Treatment

One of the primary reasons why more men are seeking cosmetic treatment is to look better in the workplace. “Freshening up” with a facial rejuvenation procedure can restore a youthful and energetic appearance to men hoping to advance in their careers and compete with younger colleagues. Cosmetic treatment can also erase signs of stress and help a male executive project a confident, assured look.


Another reason why cosmetic treatment is becoming so popular among men is that today’s procedures produce natural results without the telltale signs of surgery. Modern techniques also require less downtime and cause fewer complications in general. With the right surgeon, plastic surgery is better, safer and more accessible than ever!

What Men Want

According to industry experts, the top procedures among men include the following:

  • Facelift: restores a more youthful look to the face by smoothing wrinkles and creases, eliminating sagging skin and tightening the remaining skin.
  • Rhinoplasty: improves the look of an abnormally sized or shaped nose. Can eliminate a hump or bump on the bridge, refine the tip of the nose or modify the nostrils.
  • Eyelid Surgery: minimizes signs of aging in the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both by removing excess eyelid skin, reducing puffiness and tightening the remaining skin.
  • Hair Restoration: transplants healthy follicles from hair-bearing scalp into balding or thinning areas. Can recreate a natural looking hairline. (Dr. McCracken uses NeoGraft, which he blogged about last month.)
