‘Brotox.’ If you haven’t heard this term, you should have. Plastic surgeons across the country report that over twenty percent of their botox patients are men, with that number on the rise.
Last year alone, men spent over two billion dollars on botox in the U.S. That’s not surprising when celebrity hard characters – including Mickey Rourke and Sylvester Stallone, have been using botox to keep age at bay for years.
As more and more males turn to the needle, we at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg found ourselves asking the pertinent question; why?
The not-so-surprising answer – so that men aren’t left behind when it comes to their dating and Instagram profiles.
It’s no secret that women swipe left on a whim – in fact, women are six times as picky as men when it comes to choosing an online dating partner. And this is based only on appearance. No other factors influence the initial decision – merely the presentation of a profile and its photos.
No wonder men need to up their game. As more men are finding out, if it works for women, it can work for them too. With botox and lip fillers skyrocketing in women to bolster their online profiles, men are beginning to notice the positive nuptial benefits that a little prick can have.
How Does BOTOX® Improve an Instagram Profile Pic?
BOTOX®, in combination with other cosmetic procedures, particularly injectables, is really effective at giving the well-defined facial contours. As men age, frown lines, crow’s feet, and a sunken jaw are common aesthetic issues that arise.
These signs of aging occur due to tension held in muscles, a loss of facial fat tissue and muscle, and general skin laxity.
BOTOX® and injectables effectively eliminate these wrinkles. When done with a well-planned injection regimen, brotox can restore a robust chiseled line to the jaw and face.
Contouring the face is of particular importance when taking a selfie for a profile pic, as it helps make a face look well lit, healthy and appealing – all things that women want in a profile photo.
To fill this online requirement, men are asking plastic surgeons to inject their cheeks, jawlines, and temples with the product so they stand out more in the extremely competitive online dating market.
And for many men, they need this edge.
Why Improve a Profile Pic?
As of 2019, online dating is the most popular way for people to meet a new partner. That’s not to say you can’t meet the right one elsewhere – it just means if you’re in the online dating game, you best bring you’re A-game.
But that doesn’t mean lying. Many people, particularly men, have come under scrutiny in the online dating world because they misrepresent themselves in their online dating apps.
They can do this by photoshopping a profile pic or uploading a picture from ten years ago. For many men, dating apps can be pretty tough love and it can be tempting to show photos of what they looked like when they had smooth skin and a Klitschko jawline.
Either way, when they close the deal and meet for a coffee, many women are getting a surprise when they find Mr. Officeworker waiting for them instead of Mr. Graduate.
BOTOX® and injectables give men the chance to show an honest representation of themselves that they can take pride in. What’s more, by showing updated, truthful images on dating websites, men are able to gain confidence in the fact that they are who they say they are – something that Photoshoppers will never be able to do.
While men beginning to show signs of aging can diet and exercise to achieve a good physique, there isn’t much they can do much about the encroaching crow’s feet, weak jaws, and bumpy foreheads – other than brotox.
Sure, there are filters and poses that are age-reducing. But when the time comes, and you’ve got to meet the girl in person, she might be in for a bit of a shock.
