Modern Male – The Top Five Treatments for Men
Women aren’t the only ones enhancing their appearance. In fact, more and more men are realizing that they can also take advantage of all of the amazing advancements and innovations the beauty industry has to offer. Here are some of guys’ favorite treatments at Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics.
You may not realize it, but Botox is by far the most popular anti-aging treatment for men. Perhaps that’s due to the fact that guys tend to notice the signs of aging more by their eyes and forehead than the rest of the face. Botox works to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines by decreasing the underlying muscle activity that causes them. Injections are FDA-approved for use in between the eyebrows (these lines are often times referred to as the 11s), crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead lines. The appointment only last about 30 minutes with the injections taking less than one minute. You leave the office with little to no downtime…most of our patients return to work and normal activity right afterwards.
If your aging concerns are in the mid to lower part of your face, dermal fillers may be your best bet. As you age, collagen and elastin production slows, leading to loss of volume and facial fullness with subsequent occurrence of deep wrinkles, lines, and folds. Dermal fillers temporarily restore your youthful appearance by plumping and lifting your features while softening and smoothing out wrinkles and folds. Soft tissue fillers can target and enhance the areas in the midface (improves sagging cheeks and plumps up nasolabial folds) as well as the areas around your nose, mouth, and chin. Plus, you can define the jawline which can have jowls and temples which can hollow with age. Thinning lips can also be addressed with precise filler injections. During your consultation, Dr. Ravi and Dr. Gopathi will provide a complete facial analysis and make their recommendations based on your goals. We are proud to offer the following dermal fillers for cosmetic enhancement:

PRP Hair Restoration
Hair restoration is on top of many mens’ anti-aging to-do lists. That’s because thinning hair can kill your confidence and make you look older than you really are. But you don’t have to let the comb-over or your favorite hat be your daily hair routine. Hair restoration with PRP can improve hair loss by turning over dormant hair follicles into their growth phase.
Therapy with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) has been shown to improve hair growth and quality over time. PRP is effective since we harness your own, natural growth potential. We spin down a small sample of your own blood and separate out the plasma (the liquid component of your blood) which is highly concentrated growth factors, platelets, and stem cells. This also has healing properties, which encourage your body to promote tissue repair, enhance hair thickness, decreases hair falling out and improves the overall growing environment for thinning hair.
If excessive sweating is what’s troubling you, look no further than miraDry. This non-invasive treatment delivers precise energy to eliminate the offending sweat and odor glands at the root of your perspiration or odor. The treatment is permanent, multiple treatments may possibly be needed to achieve your goal outcome. And there’s no waiting around to see results—miraDry works immediately, so you can wear whatever you want with confidence knowing that you aren’t going to sweat right through it.
Sometimes stubborn pockets of fat can linger on the male body no matter how dialed in your diet and exercise routines are. A common problem many men face is gynecomastia, or excess male breast tissue. This can lead to embarrassing “male breasts” that won’t go away even if you’re in amazing shape. Fortunately, you can permanently reduce the unwanted tissue with liposuction. Liposuction can also address other common areas, such as the love handles and muffin top to reveal a sexy six-pack or define the surrounding muscle groups.
