How can men avoid that overly feminine look with fillers?

Can you comment on fillers for men, especially around the cheekbone area? How does a man avoid getting a feminine look from fillers?

Good question – I’m guessing a lot of men are concerned about this.   Basically, if you study the face shape and contours of good looking men there is quite a variety, isn’t there.  But some basic differences do apply.

For example, men generally have a stronger jaw ( mandible) than women.  It’s important with men’s faces to preserve the strength and dominence of the mandible over the cheeks, or at least to balance them.  If the upper face starts to get wider than the lower, his face will look more feminine.  Also, a leaner more sculpted approach to the cheekbones is better because it speaks to the naturally lower body fat most men have.   If the contours of the cheeks themselves get too rounded it looks more feminine.   There are other things too but you can get the idea.  Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
