The emerging market for men who want to restore or preserve a youthful vital appearance in a very competitive world, where youth is looked up to, has brought men to the aesthetic office seeking renewal and improvement of their face and body. The men who come to my office typically prefer straight forward treatments with demonstrated results. Contemporary male patients have similar concerns as women, trying to maintain a natural outcome in whatever they chose to do.
Men who have aged know that they are getting older and have very realistic expectations of what to expect, sometimes even more so than women. Men might turn the corner after a birthday milestone and come in for advice on how they can age more gracefully. They are concerned about preserving their masculinity. Often their significant others have made them seek a consultation. Their wives or girlfriends have had a treatment with me and have sent them in my direction.
Within the male aesthetic patients there is an increasing number of gay men seeking procedures. They are very particular about keeping up their looks. They are more compliant keeping their appointments for their treatments. In this increasingly metrosexual environment the lines between heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual blend. I am often not sure who is straight and who is gay, and sometimes I’m surprised when I find out who is what.
