Those Masculine Good Looks
Women love to improve their looks, and when they undergo any type of cosmetic procedure, they are likely to crow about it to friends and relatives.
Men, those strong, silent types, like to look good too, but few will own up to having undergone cosmetic procedures.
Here’s a little surprise. According to the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the number of cosmetic surgical procedures performed on American men jumped by over 40% since 2002. Currently, men undergo 15% of eyelid surgeries, and 24% of nose jobs. Why?
Some say the uptick correlates to vanity, which seems to affect both genders equally. Others say the tight job market makes a youthful appearance mandatory, not optional.
But before you schedule that eyelift or nose job, do yourself a favor and look into the mirror. Perhaps your most important enhancement opportunity is right under your nose, namely your smile.
Men especially show age and wear on their teeth. Investing in your smile through cosmetic dentistry can light up the face and take years away in just one or two visits.
Some men are even becoming more open about their results. The patient shown here was so satisfied with the cosmetic dentistry provided for him by Dr. Tom Hughes, that he agreed to share his before and after photos. “It may sound like and overstatement,” he said, “but when I saw what a healthy smile did for my face, I vowed to get healthier all over.”
In other words, men are learning what women have known for years: a beautiful, healthy smile not only improves your appearance, but it also makes you feel more confident. The improved self-image is likely to have other spillover effects, like a more proactive attitude toward your overall health. Nothing could be more masculine.
