Self-doubt is a universal woe. We have all experienced feelings of uncertainty or lack of esteem regarding some less-than-favorable aspect of ourselves. It’s a natural consequence of being paired with a brain that seeks perfection and a body that can never meet the mind’s standards. However, as Harvard-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Mata (aka Dr. Scottsdale®) points out, we are finding new ways to improve our bodies and our appearances every day. Cosmetic procedures that were once considered taboo are now safe and viable options to increase confidence and self-esteem. “Cosmetic procedures can help those plagued by self-doubts and body image issues to feel better about themselves and live a happier life,” Dr. Mata says.
The Shifting Public Perception of Plastic Surgery
Harvard-trained Dr. Carlos Mata is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Natural Results Plastic Surgery. He believes that the increase in interest may be the result of a growing social acceptance of plastic surgery. “With COVID and the explosion of social media like TikTok, plastic surgery is becoming more popular,” he explains. “People are not ashamed of talking about it anymore. Now that the stigma is dying out, men that have only wondered about the benefits of plastic surgery and non-surgical enhancement are gaining the confidence to take the next step and make an appointment.”
Changing Lives with Non-Surgical Cosmetic Enhancement
Millions of men around the world are plagued by doubts about the size or appearance of their genitals. These thoughts can seriously affect a person’s body image and self-confidence, which in turn can affect relationships, job performance, and other important areas of life. Male enhancement procedures and penis surgeries can help to address cosmetic concerns and increase men’s confidence, but some men feel hesitant to commit to surgical enhancement. As Dr. Mata explains, “It’s a big commitment, and some people may not feel ready to take the risk.” That’s why Dr. Mata offers a range of non-surgical enhancements and non-invasive procedures.
Dr. Mata typically opts for nonsurgical enhancements rather than phalloplasty (surgical penile lengthening) for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the most important reason is that nonsurgical procedures can be performed in the privacy of the Natural Results exam room, whereas more invasive surgeries requiring anesthesia or incisions would need to be undertaken in the operating room. In addition, nonsurgical enhancements allow for quicker recovery and no scarring.
Men Are Travelling Far and Wide for The Magic Shot™
Men are traveling from across the country to receive a new cosmetic procedure created by Dr. Mata himself. The Magic Shot™ treatment utilizes FDA-approved injectable fillers and/or fat transfer to enhance the width and girth of the penis, which can increase both confidence and pleasure. “We use fillers – hyaluronic acid injections, commonly used for lips – to increase the volume of the penis,” Dr. Mata explains. “Placing the filler into the penis allows the patient to gain extra girth and thickness, about 20% on average.” This procedure has little downtime, allowing out-of-state patients to fly in and out of Scottsdale on the same day.
Dr. Mata Predicts Strong Growth for the Plastic Surgery Industry
With social acceptance on the rise, Dr. Mata expects to see the industry grow at a faster rate than in previous years. He believes this trend will continue on into the future. “I don’t think plastic surgery will ever stop growing,” he explains. “As technology and techniques become more advanced, I think cosmetic enhancements will become even more common.” As the industry continues to grow, Dr. Mata hopes to help men and women across the country feel better about themselves and their appearance.
