It Pays to Look Good

As insipid, pimply teenagers you were probably told by your mothers and grandmothers that looks are unimportant and what’s inside is what really counts; regrettably, they were mistaken. Many scholars, including renowned economist Daniel Hamermesh, have noted that those who are better looking are more likely to be employed, work more productively and profitably, receive more substantial pay, obtain loan approvals, negotiate loans with better terms, and have more attractive and highly educated spouses. 

It Pays to look Good

Accordingly, it’s no surprise that more men are considering the importance of their looks and how they can subtly improve their appearance. Dr. Michael Bublik, a triple board-certified physician in Facial Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose, Throat Surgery, has noticed a significant increase in male patients seeking Botox injections. He points out that, according to a study in the journal Cosmetic Dermatology, the number of American men getting Botox injections—which relax the facial muscles to minimize lines and wrinkles—has skyrocketed 258% over the past decade or so.

At his practice, Dr. Bublik reports that in addition to Botox and other wrinkle relaxers, guys can also get great results with dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. Dermal fillers (also called soft tissue fillers) are a non-surgical injectable treatment used to restore facial volume, create youthful facial contours, and smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dr. Bublik injects the dermal fillers into the skin using very fine needles; most patients report very little discomfort and subsequent little-to-no bruising.

Many of Dr. Bublik’s male patients are not reluctant to undergo a blepharoplasty (eyelid rejuvenation) or lower rhytidectomy (removal of the dreaded “turkey neck”) to achieve a more youthful look. Others prefer to skip surgery and seek non-surgical options for subtle improvement such as a micro-liposuction to clean up the jawline—which can become slack when you're in your 30s and 40s due to excess fat or sun exposure. Dr. Bublik can perform a micro-liposuction in his office under mild sedation, with no sutures and only minor bruising, in about 30-45 minutes.

Dr. Bublik emphasizes that men want to look attractive, youthful and energetic throughout their entire lives. Simply because a man is getting older, doesn't mean that he wants to appear aged, tired and worn-out. Men are having children later in life, working well into their 60s, and accomplishing more throughout their middle ages and senior years, and they want to look fresh, virile and energetic.

You don’t need to be a high-powered executive to consider Botox and other subtle ways to improve your looks. Regular guys just like are consulting with Dr. Bublik to achieve a better appearance and improve their lives and relationships.
