    The growth in men’s procedures was driven in particular by facial treatments, with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) the most popular procedure up 15% followed by rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) up 14%. Other facial procedures also gained in popularity with 14% more face/neck lifts and 15.5% more brow lifts.

    BAAPS’ press release says:

    “Although men still account for just 9% of the total number of cosmetic surgery operations in the UK, their numbers have nearly doubled over the past decade (from 2,440 procedures in 2005 to 4,614 in 2015).”

    However, surgery is not the only choice for men seeking to rejuvenate their faces or improve the shape of their nose.

    Non-Surgical Procedures for Men

    Increasing numbers of men are also now regularly having anti-ageing injections in order to maintain a younger and fresher look.

    Popular Male Non-Invasive Treatments

    Here are a few treatments which are particularly popular with male clientele at SkinViva

    Advantages Over Surgery

    These offer a non-invasive alternative to surgery and there are a number of advantages to this approach.

    • Price – while facial surgery will cost £000’s, injectable treatments are a fraction of the price with Botox starting at £190 for men
    • Convenience – non-surgical treatments are available in clinic – no need to travel to hospital or worry about overnight stays – most treatments can be completed in your lunch break with you being able to return to work the same day
    • Recovery – non-surgical treatments are such that patients can return straight to normal activities. There are no bandages to wear, no need to recover from the side effects of general anaesthetic and often very little indication that anything has been done at all apart from a little short term swelling or redness
    • Temporary – surgery is a drastic and permanent decision. By contrast, cosmetic treatments are temporary and can be repeated when they wear off and adjusted over time in line with the ageing process
    • Reversible – injectable treatments such as dermal fillers can be reversed. This is rarely required but good to know
    • Safety – there are known risks with surgery and general anaesthetic which are not an issue for injectable treatments
    • Natural-look – cosmetic treatments can now be used to deliver a very natural look
    • Comfort – all our injectable treatments are surprisingly gentle. For extra comfort we apply a numbing cream using local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort

    Recognising Masculinity

    There are inherent differences between male and female face shape. SkinViva’s team of practitioners are trained to understand these and ensure that a subtly different approach is used to suit each patient’s own requirements.
