“Looking and feeling your best is for everyone – including men,” said Dr. Capizzi. “We have seen an upswing in the number of men seeking the help of cosmetic procedures when diet and exercise are not producing their desired results. Discovering the right procedure for your needs can boost self-confidence and better help you commit to a more healthy lifestyle.”

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the percentage of men seeking out cosmetic procedures has risen 106 percent over the past decade. With warmer months ahead, Dr. Capizzi suggests injectables, CoolSculpting®, eyelid lift and surgery to address Male Gynecomastia as the top procedures for men considering cosmetic changes.


There are a variety of injectables that offer fast results with little to no downtime. Kybella® is 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® has grown in popularity among male clients even to the point of adopting the endearing nickname of “Brotox”. This injection is used to temporarily paralyze the tiny muscles responsible for frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. Dr. Capizzi suggests “Brotox” for men seeking a smoother, more youthful facial appearance.


To tackle “love handles,” “beer bellies,” and “spare tires”, Dr. Capizzi suggests a CoolSculpting® makeover. Most appropriate for clients within 15 pounds of the healthy weight for their height, CoolSculpting® procedures can help rid men of the stubborn pockets of fat found around their hips, belly, back, and chest (including addressing Male Gynecomastia). Offering streamlined pecs, abs, and arms with no incisions and almost no postoperative discomfort, patients can usually return to work or school the same day as their procedure.

Eyelid Lift

Loss of elasticity and weakened muscles around the eyes can make one appear exhausted or depressed, and can add as much as ten years to one’s perceived age. With the latest revolutionary techniques in eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty), vibrant, youthful eyes are finally within reach. Men who undergo excision of the upper eyelid skin – done in under an hour, under local anesthesia, with a downtime of just 48 hours – see an immediate benefit.

Solving the Man Boob Dilemma

Inherited genes, hormonal imbalances, poor metabolism and aging can all play into a man’s struggle with Gynecomastia – more commonly known as “Man Boob.” For situations where diet and exercise aren’t enough, Dr. Capizzi suggests removing excess fat with liposuction or excision. By removing excess fat and tissue, Dr. Capizzi works with his male patients to provide clients with a trim, firm and more masculine chest. Men can expect to recover and return to normal activities within 48 hours of their procedure.
