Look Younger with Men’s Plastic Surgery Procedures

Let’s face it, we are not getting any younger. Work, stress and even play can take years from our appearance, especially on our face. With men spending more than $4 billion each year on cosmetic treatments, it’s now normal to see a male friend or co-worker at your local medical spa trying to restore a youthful glow. Many men work in factories, steel mills and construction sites, where you can find tons of chemicals that are harmful to the skin. Years ago, we didn’t have the technology to prevent or correct the damage from these chemicals, fumes etc., but now, with resources like Body Beautiful Medi-Spa, we can repair and learn how to protect the largest organ in our body (your skin). Here are some great example of Men’s Plastic Surgery Procedures and why men would come into the spa:

Our Men’s Plastic Surgery Procedures

Men’s Teeth Whitening

Did you know that there is a correlation between high self-esteem and a white, confident smile? Or that studies have shown that people who have whiter teeth look younger than people who don’t? Our whitening gel was developed by an ISO Certified Dental Laboratory for fast whitening and lasting results.  Originally developed by a team of dental professionals, this is a simple 15 minute procedure without the dentist’s price!

Male Laser Hair Removal

Our laser treatments, designed specifically for hair removal, can control hair problems. The procedure works by reducing the density and coarseness of hair and reducing growth in unwanted areas.  Because hair grows in phases, several treatments are required until the majority of hair follicles are damaged or destroyed, making them incapable of producing hair. Your confidence will increase as our laser technicians work to improve your appearance.

Male Tattoo Removal

Our professional staff will remove that decision you made years ago. You don’t have to live with your unwanted tattoos anymore!

Male Breast Reduction

Have you been living with enlarged male breasts? Many men are embarrassed by this condition, refusing to go shirtless – even at the beach.  With modern advances in liposuction, the excess fat tissue can be removed safely. Following the procedure, the discomfort is easily treated with a simple analgesic such as Aspirin. Our doctors have seen the remarkable transformation of many happy patients.

Male Liposuction

Men's Plastic Surgery Procedures

You’ve tried diet and exercise but can’t seem to get rid of unwanted fatty areas on your body.  Or, perhaps you have lived for years with a double chin, or love handles that appeared out of no where when you hit 40.  With modern liposuction, a procedure in which fat deposits are carefully suctioned out of the body, excessive fat deposits can be removed. This safe, cosmetic procedure can reshape those disproportionate or unsightly contours of the body. With an artistic eye and a careful attention to detail, our doctor will remove just the right amount of fat for pleasing results.

Is cosmetic surgery recovery different for men and women?

The recovery process for cosmetic surgery can vary depending on the specific procedure and the individual’s unique circumstances, rather than being solely influenced by gender. While men and women may undergo similar cosmetic procedures, the recovery experience can be influenced by factors such as the surgical technique used, the extent of the procedure, the patient’s overall health, and their body’s healing ability.

However, there are certain cosmetic procedures that are more commonly sought by one gender over the other. For example, breast augmentation or reduction is more common among women, while procedures like male chest contouring (gynecomastia surgery) may be more prevalent among men. In such cases, the recovery may be influenced by the specific anatomical differences and the surgical techniques employed.

It’s worth noting that individual factors, such as age, overall health, lifestyle, and adherence to post-operative care instructions, can significantly impact the recovery process for both men and women. It’s important for patients to consult with their surgeon and follow their post-operative guidelines closely to ensure a smooth and successful recovery, regardless of gender.

How long do the results of cosmetic surgery typically last for men?

The duration of results from cosmetic surgery for men can vary depending on several factors, including the type of procedure performed, individual characteristics, lifestyle choices, and the aging process. While cosmetic surgery can provide long-lasting improvements, it’s important to understand that it does not halt the natural aging process entirely.

Some procedures, such as rhinoplasty (nose surgery) or male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery), typically provide permanent results, unless significant weight fluctuations or other factors impact the outcomes. However, other procedures, like facelifts or eyelid surgeries, can help turn back the clock but do not stop the aging process. Over time, natural aging and environmental factors can continue to affect the treated areas.

Skin Tightening and Deep Wrinkle Reduction

Ear Repair

Too old for gauges?

Repairing an earlobe is a simple, nearly pain free, in office procedure. Dr. Giraldo, M.D., will begin by numbing the patient with a local anesthetic. There are multiple techniques when repairing an earlobe depending on each individual’s case.

Dr. Giraldo uses a scalpel to make a clean, smooth incision at a 90 degree right angle, or a zigzag shape trimming the excess skin if needed. The inside of the ear will be scored with the scalpel and sewn shut with stitches on the front and back. The patient’s ear will be bandaged following the surgery.

Coolsculpting for non-surgical fat reduction

If you’re thinking about liposuction you owe it to yourself to consider CoolSculpting. It’s a newer cold-based therapy designed to reduce unwanted pockets of fat in “problem areas” such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. It’s one of the most popular liposuction alternatives in use today, and for good reason—it’s entirely noninvasive.

CoolSculpting is based on the concept of cryplipolysis. While this term may seem confusing it makes perfect sense when broken into its parts. “Cryo” refers to cold, “lipo” refers to fat, and “lysis” refers to targeted destruction. Put more simply, CoolSculpting takes advantage of the fact that fat cells don’t react well too extreme cold. When used properly, it’s possible to kill fat cells by freezing them while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.

As with liposuction, CoolSculpting is designed to reduce small pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat. It works best on shallow pockets of fat directly beneath the surface and can be used anywhere liposuction is effective. As such, it’s particularly good at treating smaller areas such as the neck, chin, and upper arms. The results are typically seen in the weeks following treatment, and aren’t as dramatic as those of liposuction. Conversely, CoolSculpting is completely noninvasive and shares almost none of the downsides of liposuction. There’s no incisions, no discomfort following treatment, and virtually no downtime. It’s also quite economical, and a typical treatment package is about 1/3 the cost of a comparable liposuction procedure.

Getting the most out of your cosmetic procedure:

Choosing to have cosmetic surgery isn’t a decision which should be taken lightly. To start the process, you’ll want to have a face-to-face consultation with a cosmetic or plastic surgeon. After this it’s up to you to decide on exactly what you want to accomplish and educate yourself accordingly. The following tips apply to almost all cosmetic procedures:

  • Work with your doctor to develop realistic expectations. Before committing to a procedure it’s critical to know exactly what it can (and can’t) accomplish.
  • All surgery, even minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, have some risk involved. It’s critical that you’re aware of all of the risks and potential complications associated with your procedure beforehand.
  • Cigarette smoke can interfere with the healing process. If you smoke, avoid tobacco use for the week before and after your appointment. Better yet, use this as an opportunity to quit for good.
  • Don’t drink alcohol in the 3 days prior to your surgery. Alcohol is a potent blood thinner and can cause unnecessary bleeding during your procedure.
  • Get as physically fit as possible before your surgery. Patients who are in good shape heal faster and experience fewer complications than those who aren’t.
  • By the same token, if you’re having liposuction get as close as possible to your ideal weight before your surgery. Liposuction is meant to remove small pockets of diet and exercise resistant fat. It’s not a weight loss procedure and shouldn’t be used as such.
  • Make sure that your surgeon is aware of all prescription and Over the Counter (OTC) drugs you’re currently taking. Some medications, particularly blood thinners, may need to be temporarily stopped in the days or weeks before your procedure.
