Looks Matter During Election Season

Election season is in full swing. While we’d like to think that the issues are the focus, the infamous Kennedy vs. Nixon debate reflects that looks matter when it comes to political opinion.

For male candidates, voters favor a leader with strong jaw line, tight neck, and generally fit appearance. History shows that bags under the eyes, a double chin and extra weight around the neck or mid-section all work against a candidate’s image.

To stay competitive, more and more men are turning to aesthetic procedures to remain youthful and relevant. In fact, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, more than 500,000 men have cosmetic surgery annually.

Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Sam Rizk, MD, FACS, has noticed a dramatic uptick in his own male clientele, who now make up 25% of his practice. The most impactful tweaks Dr. Rizk recommends to men are:

  • Neck Lift: Dr. Rizk pioneered a Rapid Recovery Neck Lift that uses 3D imaging and high def technology to drastically reduce bruising, swelling, scarring and recovery time.
  • Brow Lift: Men with low set brows can be misinterpreted as angry. A brow lift can help.
  • Chin Implant: Males with more dominant features like a jutting chin and wide jaw bones are more likely to be promoted in the military, achieving higher rank. Fillers or chin implants can accomplish this look.
  • Rhinoplasty: A symmetric face and nose are associated with making a better first impression.

To answer the growing demands of his male patients, Dr. Rizk developed a unique 3D high definition technology that allows for less invasive surgery and drastically reduces recovery time. With this advanced technology, men are able to return to work faster and without the usual telltale plastic surgery signs.

Dr. Rizk’s office is located at 1040 Park Avenue in Manhattan.
