The practice of Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, has seen a sharp rise in the number of male patients seeking treatment with Botox, a treatment dubbed “Bro-tox” by the media. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of men receiving Botox increased by 258 percent between 2000 and 2010.
Most male patients have complaints about the furrows of their forehead and between their eyes, which give a tired or unhappy appearance. They are also concerned with the development of crow’s feet around their eyes, which ages the face. Many men searching for jobs feel that a more energetic and rejuvenated appearance will help them better compete against younger applicants.
Both Botox and the more recently approved Dysport, temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Both accomplish this in the same way – by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles that create the creasing between the brows. Both allow the untreated muscles of the forehead to work normally, so facial expression can still be exhibited when smiling, frowning or looking surprised. Preventing changes with eyebrow shape or producing a “done” look is a top priority for Dr. Glatt with every treatment.
Dr. Glatt often uses Botox to treat the forehead furrows and between the brows, and then Dysport to treat the crow’s feet area on either side of the eyes. This customized treatment produces superior aesthetic results.
