new york - according to new york magazine, heck yeah! whether you call it botox, boytox, or mantox : men have been lining up for the chemical fountain of youth at greater numbers. seth kugel just did an in depth article on this for the new york times. here's an excerpt:
“In general, the pressures for aging are far greater for women,” said Dr. Alan Matarasso, a plastic surgeon in Manhattan. “However, when we see a blip in the economy and how many people are going to be laid off today, you now have a 40- or 50-year-old advertising or bank or media person looking for a job,” said Dr. Matarasso, who is also a clinical professor of plastic surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. “People have a tendency to look for vibrancy and youth. At times of economic downturns you will often see greater interest. It really ranks up there with an expensive haircut.”
