Abstract:

Male rejuvenation, defined as a process in men to both limit the impact of aging on body image and experience greater virility, is growing among middleaged and older men and can occur both through aesthetic surgical means and hormonal manipulation.

  • Good article addressing the oftentimes neglected part of men’s health: the psyche. It is easier to prescribe medications than to address mental health. I think this stresses the importance of incorporating sexual health counseling into the wholeness aspect of male rejuvenation. Men are already less likely to discuss their feelings. Treating the hormonal aspect of them can give us an opportunity to bring up this topic.
