Every year, our family of male patients expands here at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics. We attribute this growth to a number of things. For starters, a broader foundation of all-around acceptance exists for the men in our lives undergoing aesthetic procedures. There’s also heightened awareness! For example, unless you live on a remote island without TV or internet, you are aware that you can now reduce fat without surgery or downtime thanks to non-invasive body contouring treatments.
We’re thrilled that a growing number of men are comfortable seeking aesthetic care. If you’ve been thinking about making a self-improvement this year, here’s a look at five of the most popular services among our male patients:
Laser Hair Removal
When it comes to life-changing results, laser hair removal is the gift to yourself that keeps on giving. Men often seek us out to reduce hair growth from the back, chest and other areas of concern. We typically perform a series of six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Because your results are gradual, there’s no time like the present to start your series.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is popular among men to help boost low testosterone levels or other hormones that may be out of whack. Your first step is visiting us for a consultation. We’ll need to thoroughly analyze your medical history, lifestyle and blood work to determine if BHRT is right for you.
If you’re interested in gradual, natural-looking fat reduction but are not interested in surgery, Vanquish ME could be the ideal solution for you. Many men struggle with losing weight in notoriously difficult areas, despite putting time and effort into a healthy diet and exercise routine. Vanquish ME uses radiofrequency energy to destroy targeted fat cells, resulting in fat reduction and reduced circumference of the abdomen, waist or thighs — without surgery and with little to no downtime!
Gynecomastia is the overdevelopment of male breasts and is a relatively common condition in men of all ages. Dr. Tanya Atagi has years of experience performing male breast reduction procedures and will work one-on-one with you to help restore a naturally masculine contour to your chest. Male breast reductions can be performed using a variety of modalities depending on severity – a number that can be done discretely in the clinic under light oral sedation with minimal downtime and risk.
PAL stands for Power-assisted Lipo. The effectiveness and beauty of the PAL Lipo procedure is that it is not heat-based. The system is designed to mechanically disrupt fat cells with minimal trauma and simultaneously suction to significantly decrease your time on the table. PAL allows for more precision for body sculpting and contouring. PAL can be used to efficiently reduce unwanted fat in common “problem” areas such as neck, male breasts, abdomen, back and more.
