Our number-one goal is to achieve a fresh, rejuvenated look, without sacrificing a man’s natural, masculine appearance.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
at his thriving plastic surgery practice in New York and New Jersey, Dr. Michael Fiorillo is seeing a growing number of male patients walking through his door. The recent interest seems to be attributed to a fascinating new trend in the world of cosmetic medicine: Dads exploring plastic surgery around Father’s Day.
“Years ago, certain cosmetic procedures were associated only with female patients,” reports Dr. Fiorillo. “Today, that’s simply no longer the case.” This confirms recent data published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). According to their 2011 statistics, the number of overall male cosmetic procedures is up a full 16% from the 2000 numbers.
“What’s even more interesting,” explains Dr. Fiorillo, “is that we’re seeing this boom in interest right around Father’s Day.” Seemingly a national trend, this uptick is confirmed in a social media review recently published by aesthetic medicine resource, The Patient’s Guide®. an organizational press release indicates that, “In the last 30 days leading up to Father’s Day, a review of Facebook and Twitter posts indicates that 40% of all social media references to BOTOX® … were now made by men.”
Dr. Fiorillo speculated on what may be driving this new trend. “In today’s difficult job market, a lot of men are definitely turning to cosmetic treatment to stay competitive,” explains Dr. Fiorillo. “Men’s attitudes are also shifting. It’s no longer taboo for a male patient to come in for a plastic surgery consultation.” Dr. Fiorillo is also the doctor behind SoHo’s wildly successful Luminique MedSpa. there, he offers traditional spa services, along with some of the most requested minimally-invasive procedures to date: BOTOX, soft tissue fillers, etc.
Asked about special male considerations, Dr. Fiorillo concluded succinctly: “Men have unique medical needs and cosmetic concerns. Our number-one goal is to achieve a fresh, rejuvenated look, without sacrificing a man’s natural, masculine appearance.”
