Dermal Fillers for Men:
Stronger Jaw, Squarer Chin, Straighter Nose!
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men increased by 273% between 1997 and 2014. And, injectable fillers such as Juvéderm and other augmentation procedures have been seeing steady increases in men’s use since 2015, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
In previous articles we have discussed how male Botox patients account for more than 10% of all Botox procedures in the United States. And, in 2019, more than half a million men received Botox treatments. Now, seeing similar, but slower growth is men’s use of dermal fillers.
Unfortunately, many men still erroneously consider dermal fillers a “female thing” – without realizing how much facial filler products can enhance a man’s appearance. In this article Birmingham, MI board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali discusses the many ways that dermal fillers can not only take years off a man’s face, but can also give them a more handsome, masculine and attractive appearance.
#1. Men’s Dermal Fillers for Wrinkle Reduction
The obvious use of dermal fillers for men is to fill in lines and wrinkles that make them look older. And, not only is looking younger more desirable when dating, looking more youthful helps a man remain competitive in the workplace, as well as in the fields of sports or politics.
But wrinkle reduction is only one of the uses of dermal fillers in men!
#2. Men’s Dermal Fillers for a Stronger Jawline
Men’s dermal fillers can also be used to create a stronger jawline – and is rapidly becoming one of most popular men’s cosmetic procedures in Hollywood and New York. Men are now much more aware of the appearance of their jawline – from every angle – thanks to social media, selfies and all of those close-up Zoom meetings.
Geometrically, a “handsome” jawline from the side profile is considered optimally to be 130 degrees. Think Robert Pattinson or George Clooney. But a weak or softer jawline can make a man look more feminine, less confident and assertive, and even less “manly”.
Dermal fillers can be used to create an attractive jawline by filling out the back of a client’s jaw to achieve the desired angle, and visually separate the jaw from the neck.
#3. Men’s Dermal Fillers for a Squarer Chin
In addition to a stronger jawline, dermal fillers can be used to create a more square or symmetrical chin. If you look at the male celebrities who are considered the most attractive, you will typically notice symmetry between the edges of the chin and the outermost corners of the mouth.
Dermal fillers can be injected along the bone to build-out the chin to achieve these ideal proportions. New Juvéderm Voluma XC is ideal for this function, because it has a bigger particle size – so it is firmer and more “structural”.
#4. Men’s Dermal Fillers for a Straighter Nose
Dermal fillers for the nose? Yes, you read that correctly. When skillfully injected by a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ali in Birmingham, MI dermal fillers can sometimes take the place of a nose job! And, for appropriate candidates, who wouldn’t prefer a few quick injections to more expensive rhinoplasty with much longer downtime?
Some men are simply born with an asymmetrical or undesirable nose shape. While many other men end up with a crooked nose after suffering an injury while playing sports or roughhousing when they were younger. But skillful injection of dermal fillers can add symmetry to a man’s nose, as well as smooth out bumps or adjust proportions to be more desirable – all without surgery!
