In my last post, I provided insights into what’s new in Mommy Makeovers – a term familiar to many women. Today, I’d like to talk about a group who doesn’t always have that level of awareness regarding the procedures and treatments available to help them be their best selves: men!
My Capizzi MD team and I have seen an uptick in “Manly Makeovers,” as more men realize they don’t have to “just live with” common issues such as male pattern baldness, excessive sweat and “love handles” anymore. In the past, many of these Issues could only be addressed with surgery, or by methods that brought considerable discomfort, but thanks to the latest devices and treatments, many are now resolved in as little as one office visit, with little to no down-time.
The latest addition to the Capizzi MD practice is the perfect example: NeoGraft®, the first and only FDA approved follicular harvesting and implantation system and the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry. In contrast to the traditional “strip method,” NeoGraft patients experience little to no discomfort – and no linear scarring. A natural looking head of hair is the consistent, proven result of this minimally-invasive procedure.
Other popular elements of Manly Makeovers include:
• miraDry®, a non-surgical, electromagnetic treatment which hits two big issues: it significantly reduces sweating under the arms (no more ruined shirts, and no more antiperspirant needed!) and eliminates hair – both permanently, in one 1-2 hour treatment. In addition to using miraDry for the underarm area, some male patients request its use to permanently remove their back hair as well.
• CoolSculpting®, a clinically tested, FDA-approved procedure that involves freezing the body’s most stubborn fat cells in the belly, buttocks, arms, thighs or back until they disintegrate. It is especially effective for individuals within a reasonable weight for their frames, but who suffer from unwanted and unsightly body bulging that remains resistant to diet and exercise alone.
• Kybella, an FDA-approved injectable that melts away fat deposits and brilliantly restores definition to the upper neck. Approximately 40% of Kybella clients are now men, who are enjoying not just a more comfortable fit when wearing a jacket and tie, but a huge increase in confidence.
• Botox, so popular with men that it’s earned a nickname: Brotox! When administered by an Advanced Injector, this cosmetic injectable is incredibly effective in minimizing frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. The result: a noninvasive, nonsurgical “lift” that leaves men looking well-rested and more youthful.
Take Action Today and Become Your Best Self
More and more, the concept of masculinity has expanded to include men taking action to reach their vision of their best selves. By seizing the reins of their own self-image, men can achieve a level of confidence that has a positive impact on their personal and professional lives.
For anyone considering either of these procedures, it is important to note that a successful outcome depends not just on the tools used, but on how the procedure is performed. Surgical technique plays a substantial role in shorter recovery times and long-lasting results. My and my team’s pre-, during, and post-procedure approach is summed up in “The Capizzi Method,” which you can read about here.
The body you want is closer than you may think; I encourage you to schedule a consultation with myself or one of my caring, expert colleagues to discuss whether these solutions are right for you.
