Guide for Men Considering Dermal Fillers

Whereas maintaining a youthful, healthy appearance was once thought of as a woman’s worry, nowadays men take pains to take care of their looks, too. Nevertheless, when it comes to cosmetic surgery, men are often more reluctant than women—which is why so many men opt for non-surgical options using dermal fillers. These products offer the very benefits men want most: immediate, long-lasting improvements with no need for the knife and limited downtime for recovery. Here are some guide points specifically for men who are considering injectable fillers.

Dermal Fillers for the Male Face

Environment, aging, and everyday activity all take their toll on the skin. Men’s faces have to deal with exposure, damage, and gender-specific issues, just as women’s do. The harsher the work, the longer the hours, the higher the stress, and the harder the play—the more the skin suffers. Also, some illnesses can mar and prematurely age the male face.

Injectable fillers can rapidly replace lost volume in the face where gaunt, creased cheeks and shadowed, sunken eyes occur. They can also reduce or remove the appearance of indented acne scars and stress lines in men of any age. Applied skillfully beneath the skin, these products bind with water molecules to help restore volume and tautness to smooth the skin’s surface and rejuvenate the face.

Male vs. Female Facial Anatomies

Fillers help give the face back its youthfulness by reinforcing its support structure. Men and women do have different facial anatomies, and those differences signal the perception of masculinity or femininity in facial features. In general, male cheekbones are lower and flatter, whereas rounder, higher “apple” cheeks are a common feature of the female face. Men are generally hairier and thicker-skinned than women overall, including in the face.

Dr. Franckle is experienced with facial injectables for men and understands the importance of visual balance. He can progressively fill the lower eyelids and upper cheeks to reduce shadowing yet maintain the sharpness of male facial angles. Balanced injections can help restore proportion and vitality to a “tired” male face without an “over-plumped,” or feminine-looking results.

Choosing the Right Products

Some dermal fillers, like the Restylane® line, work best in under-eye applications, while others such as the Juvéderm products provide longer-lasting results for cheeks. An experienced physician knows the latest products and will recommend options based on the patient’s goals. At our office, Dr. Franckle uses a 3-D imaging program to help his patients visualize potential results before deciding on any procedure.

For optimal results, men should consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has advanced experience administering dermal filler injections for men, like Dr. William Franckle, MD, FACS at Premier Plastic Surgery Arts.
