Men are Making Changes

The stigma that cosmetic procedures are only for women has almost completely dropped off. There are procedures, such as Rhinoplasty, Chin Augmentation and Liposuction that men have been getting for decades, but the doors have been opened for men seeking to improve their image in other ways. Here are some procedures that more men are taking advantage of:

1.    Hooded eyelids and bulging under eyelids can impede vision and add years to anyone’s appearance. They tend to be extremely prominent in some men, which can also cause a tired, sickly or gruff appearance. While wisdom comes with age, these features can be off putting. Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids to look more alert, healthy and friendly.

2.    Deep forehead creases above and between the brows also can make an appearance look always concerned, gruff or scolding. Softening these deep wrinkles can also soften people’s perception of how you’re feeling so that you’re not misunderstood. Crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and pock marks that ripple and indent the skin contribute to a possibly harsh appearance. Botox and can be used in conjunction with Injectables, such as Juvederm, to smooth and make an appearance more welcoming. Botox, affectionately called Brotox for men, can affectively change your appearance without any downtime. This is very appealing to people with busy schedules who don’t have time for a surgery induced recovery.

3.    Masculine features, such as a flat chest and “V” shaped torso can boost confidence. Maybe due to genetic predisposition, age, medicine side effects, or weight gain, these masculine features have been replaced with male breasts (gynecomastia) and a bulging waist with a spare tire around the middle. Many men have applied the benefits of surgery to sculpt their upper body with Male Breast Reduction and torso with Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) to remove fat and extra skin or just Liposuction to remove fat. A non surgical option for men who want a quick in office procedure that provides effective fat reducing results is Sculpsure, which uses laser energy to melt fat away.

4.    While in some cultures a double chin is a sign of prosperity, in America it isn’t received as desirably. Unfortunately, this is one of the most difficult areas to address naturally with diet and exercise. Many people want to restore their chin and facial definition. Fortunately, there are surgical and non surgical options to remove the excess fat in this area. If there is under chin fat and stretched neck skin, this can be removed with Neck Liposuction and a Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty). If the skin is firm enough then the most effective non surgical option to remove submental fullness is Kybella. It is an injectable of deoxycholic acid to destroy fat cells so they can no longer accumulate.

Men are made to feel welcome and comfortable in our office with our staff. There are many options to discuss how to achieve the changes you’re looking for, surgical and non surgical. To schedule a consultation to discuss the changes you’d like to make, visit www.davinciplastic.com.

SculpSure Targets Fat Where Men Need It Most

While men usually enjoy some benefits of showing their age slower than women, they don’t get to escape the slower metabolism that comes with age. Also, starting in their 30s, men will start to lose muscle mass unless they become more physically active and change their diet. Fat replaces the muscle tissue and you know how that goes. Add increased work and family demands to the picture and most men will struggle to keep off those extra pounds, especially around the waist. Fortunately, SculpSure is the solution that most men dream of.

Men Carry Weight Differently Than Women

Studies show that men and women carry more fat cells in different regions of the body. The fat distribution is as different as pears and apples. Women typically have more fat cells in the lower half of their body, such as hips and thighs. This gives them more of a pear shape. Generally, men carry their extra weight around the middle, such as their belly and “love handles.” Hence, weight gain in men resembles more of an apple shape.

No More Apple Shape, No Downtime

Fortunately, there’s a way to destroy those fat cells to prevent that apple from ever growing on the tree so to speak. SculpSure is the world’s first laser treatment cleared by the FDA to target the fat in the abdomen and flanks, which is the most common trouble areas for men. This state of the art treatment uses controlled light based technology to eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in the targeted area. And even better is that you can get these results without stopping your busy schedule. A 25 minute SculpSure treatment can be done over the course of a lunch break and you’re right back to work.

Look and Feel Great

When you consider the implications of carrying extra fat not only on how you look, but the way you feel and your overall health, it’s an extra motivation to trim down. Getting rid of extra weight around the middle can reduce back pain and puts less weight on your lower joints. Less knee and back pain can help the weight loss cycle. Also, there are studies that correlate health related risks, such as type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease, with extra abdomen fat. While you’ll feel an amazing confidence boost after melting away those fat pouches around your middle, your chances for overall heath will improve.

SculpSure targets fat where men need it most, but it can also address other problem areas. Visit www.davinciplastic.com today to talk about how SculpSure can help you or the man in your life.

Men: Minimize Your Gut With SculpSure

Starting in their 30s, men start to lose muscle mass… and their metabolism slows down. If they don’t become more physically active or decrease their calorie intake, the muscle tissue will be replaced by body fat, particularly around the abdomen. Fortunately there’s a way to destroy those fat cells. It doesn’t involve surgery or discomfort, and its call SculpSure.

SculpSure Targets Fat Where Men Store The Most
There are definite gender differences in how fat is typically distributed in the body. Women tend to carry more fat in their lower body, such as in the hips and thighs to give their figure more of a pear shape. Men generally carry the extra weight around their abdomen and flanks, which gives their body more of an apple shape.

Studies show that regardless of obesity, men and women contain more fat cells in these particular gender specific body regions. Fortunately for men, SculpSure is the world’s first laser treatment – cleared by the FDA – to target the fat in their most common trouble areas: the belly and “love handles.”

Eliminate Belly Fat for Looks and Better Health
While you’ll feel an amazing confidence boost after getting rid of the extra weight around your middle, you’ll feel great for other reasons too. Reduction in back pain, more agility and less weight on your joints can contribute to an overall more active lifestyle. Another important reason to trim down the fat around your middle is:   there are studies that correlate excess belly fat and other health related risks with type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease.

Destroy Fat with No Downtime
The typical corporate lifestyle for a man doesn’t leave much time for surgical recovery. This has lead to the rise in non invasive treatments for men who want to look and feel good, but can’t take the time off of work. Brotox is just one of the many age reversing treatments for men that has become popular. Like Botox, SculpSure treatments can occur during a work day’s lunch break with no discomfort or downtime. In a 25 minute session, this state of the art, controlled light based technology can melt up to 24% of target fat cells. 

Schedule a consultation with us if you or the man in your life wants a flatter, smoother abdomen minus love handles. Visit www.davinciplastic.com today to talk about how SculpSure can help you have that swimsuit ready body this summer.
