Orange County Facial Plastic Surgeon Discusses “Brotox” Trend
Dr. Ali Sepehr reveals how BOTOX® injections are becoming more popular with men, resulting in the trend commonly known as “Brotox.”
Irvine, CA — According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, approximately 438,513 BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments were performed on men in 2015. Orange County facial plastic surgeon Ali Sepehr, MD explains that more men are choosing to have non-surgical procedures, like BOTOX® injections, to reduce common signs of aging. As a result, he says some people have taken to calling the facial rejuvenation technique “Brotox.”
A type of neuromodulator, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily suspending movement in the muscles that can form facial creases. Dr. Sepehr says that a skilled and experienced injector understands how to target specific areas of the face to reduce wrinkles while maintaining the patient’s ability to show a full range of emotion. A natural-looking result is a primary concern for many, he adds, and the injection technique should be modified to suit the unique anatomic needs and cosmetic goals of the male patient.
Part of what makes “Brotox” so popular, Dr. Sepehr suggests, is that it is a versatile, temporary anti-aging treatment. He says patients can try out the effects, which last approximately three to six months, and then decide if they want to continue with regular injections. Additionally, the Orange County facial plastic surgeon says BOTOX® Cosmetic offers fast-acting results that are usually visible in about a week.
Dr. Sepehr emphasizes that BOTOX® Cosmetic should be administered by a qualified and experienced injector, and a facial plastic surgeon can be an ideal choice. He says facial plastic surgeons receive extensive training in how facial structures and tissues interact, allowing them to achieve excellent results for many patients, often with a lower risk of complications.
