Dr. Sean Kelishadi is a highly regarded plastic surgeon in Orange County, California. You might have seen him featured in major publications, such as Forbes and Playboy, or maybe you have come across one of his many prominent clients. He is best known for his incredibly impressive and natural-looking results, which is something that potential patients seeking out cosmetic surgery are typically looking for. While the majority of Dr. Kelishadi’s patients are women- mothers in particular, he has also treated numerous men in his practice over his many years of professional plastic surgery experience.
Many men are apprehensive to cosmetic surgeries and even non-invasive, preventative cosmetic procedures such as Botox and filler; however, according to Dr. Kelishadi, men are actually the fastest growing demographic in the aesthetics industry because they only make up about 8% of the current market.
“For men, we’re lucky because we don’t age quite as fast as some women do,” says Dr. Kelishadi. “But once we age, we look old, and a lot of us are going to be working a long time because of how expensive life has become. The stock market is not as reliable as it used to be and companies aren’t giving out pensions like they used to, so at some point, you don’t want to lose your job to someone younger because you look a bit outdated.”
Dr. Kelishadi argues that men also want to look good and that they don’t want to look outdated, just like women do. One reason that the Surgeon leans in favor of men incorporating more cosmetic practices into their lives is to excel further professionally. “I guarantee that when you take better care of yourself, you look better, you dress nicer, your skin’s glowing, and you smell good – you’re more likely to have a successful career,” Dr. Kelishadi boldly stated.
Dr. Kelishadi believes that the first step for men is to start taking care of their skin and health on a daily basis. It only takes a few seconds to put on moisturizer and a good SPF, and that will make a big difference for a person’s skin and overall appearance in the long run.
“It’s better than waking up one day and looking in the mirror and asking yourself, ‘who is this guy?’ or feeling bad about yourself” he says. “We are all our own toughest critics. Once you let yourself go, it’s hard to get it back- and nobody wants to have that realization.”
Therefore, it’s important for both women and men to consider taking preventative cosmetic measures earlier than later on in life. It’s also important to remember that, when considering a cosmetic procedure, you need to do your research. Dr. Kelishadi warns that there are plastic surgeons out there who will try to sell you on any procedure instead of actually educating you on what might work best for your particular preferences and needs. He suggests finding a board certified surgeon like himself who will treat each patient with individual, customized care.
