DR. PETER BRAY MD, FRCS(C), PLASTIC SURGEON Q1 In 2018, men accounted for more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures, demonstrating a 29% increase since 2000. Although there is an increase in male cosmetic patients, are they more open to procedures, or does a stigma persist? More men now realize that they can engage in cosmetic treatments, both surgical and nonsurgical, and still be masculine.
The stigma associated with male cosmetic enhancement has certainly diminished in recent years, and the reasons for this change are multiple. One is the plain visibility of men, including â€œmachoâ€? celebrities, undergoing these treatments whether on TV, social media or online. Another reason is sheer explosion in access to new treatments that are quick, safe, effective and have minimal downtime. No longer does cosmetic treatment mandate surgery and weeks of recovery as it did years ago.
Q2 In 2020, there seems to be a a plastic surgery trend called “Daddy Do-Over” Have you seen this among your male patients? Given that men now constitute almost half of my patients I have seen an increase in male cosmetic treatments of all types. The “Daddy Do-Over (DDO)”, analogous to the “Mommy Make-Over” is a popular one in my practice. Typically the DDO attends to the male troublespots that develop in middle age (stubborn bulges in the chest, abdomen and love handles) even despite a healthy lifestyle. Many of my patients seeking a DDO are brought in for a consult by their enthusiastic wives after Mommy Make-Over transformations.
Q3 On your male patients, you perform implant procedures, liposuction, and tummy tucks, among many other procedures. Do your male patients request these for cosmetic purposes, or do these procedures provide physical health benefits as well? These procedures do not generally provide any direct health
benefits, but they often indirectly contribute to a healthy lifestyle. After such procedures, men tend to be motivated to maintain their investment by watching their weight and exercising. By improving self esteem, many men find their procedure to be a stimulus to hit the gym. For example, a man who was previously reluctant to visit the gym because of gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) will often feel liberated after a male breast reduction, now comfortable to work out in a public place or engage in sports with his buddies.
Q4 What is BodyTITE RadioFrequency Assisted Liposuction? How does this technology differ from traditional liposuction? Like other types of liposuction, BodyTite allows the removal of excess fat through tiny incisions. The difference is that BodyTite simultaneously applies radiofrequency energy, melting the fat, and therefore allowing easier fat removal. This factor is valuable for men, who tend to have more fibrous, resistant fat than women. In addition the energy gently heats the skin from underneath encouraging better contraction and tightening than conventional liposuction.
Q5 What is the most common procedure you perform on male patients, in preparation for their ideal summer bodies? Advanced, strategic liposuction, as mentioned below, is by far the most common procedure for men. Men wanting to look their best in time for summer must allow for adequate recovery and resolution of swelling so advanced planning is key–they should allow at least 3 months after surgery before the ideal “unveiling” date of their new body in public. Bottom line: don’t come in for a consultation in May looking to be beach-ready in June.
Q6 What is the most common area for men to accumulate fat? What procedure do you perform in this circumstance? The classic male trouble-spots for excess fat include the chest, abdomen, and love handles. These areas are stubborn and can remain prominent even in men who are active, have a healthy lifestyle, and maintain an ideal weight. I call this combination “The Male Tri-fecta” and I often perform reduction of all three simultaneously using
advanced liposuction techniques, such as BodyTite. The submental (double-chin) area is another popular spot to reduce and tighten in this manner. Non-surgical fat reduction technologies, such as CoolSculpt and EmSculpt, among others, are modestly effective and I offer these as well. These options are much less powerful than surgical liposuction but can be a reasonable solution for those men who are not interested in surgery or who cannot accommodate the recovery time.
Q7 Do you perform any procedures that can result in men achieving the much sought after “six pack”? I often accentuate the appearance of “abs” using strategic reduction or “sculpting” of abdominal fat, known as abdominal etching. This procedure is most effective, and looks best, in a candidate who is reasonably fit to begin with. The technique first requires removal of any deep, excess fat, such that the abdomen is now flat. The “etching” part then consists of additional fat removal along the natural muscle borders, thereby creating valleys and shadows in the abdominal contour, and the appearance of a “6-pack” that everyone craves.
Q8 How do pectoral implants differ from breast implants? Pectoral implants are of a different shape and composition compared to breast implants. The ideal male chest is muscular and angular, accentuating the appearance of well-developed pectoral muscles. Pec implants are shaped in this manner, as opposed to breast implants which are fuller, rounder, and intended to enhance the fleshy, round female breast. Pec implants are also much firmer, composed of solid silicone, unlike breast implants which have a soft, silicone rubber shell and are filled with silicone gel or saline.
Q9 Which implant procedure is most commonly performed on men? In my practice, the most common is chin implants. These implants are an effective, safe option for those men who desire a more defined, stronger chin, and improved facial proportions. While this effect can be simulated with injectable fillers, many men elect for the permanent effect of an implant.
Q10 Apart from surgical procedures, you also perform non-surgical procedures, such as botox, fillers, and micro-fat injections. Most commonly on men? How can they be used to enhance a maleâ€™s features? Botox, fillers, and fat injections are all procedures I perform commonly in men. But the non-surgical options of Botox and fillers are certainly the most popular. Botox works by relaxing facial muscles, reducing wrinkles and lines in areas like the forehead and crowâ€™s feet. I generally do not try to eliminate wrinkles in men, but to soften them in a way that looks refreshed, but still natural. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a very safe, effective way to restore volume and soften lines in the mid and lower face, like the laugh lines for example. In addition to correcting effects of aging or weight loss, fillers can be used to enhance facial proportions by augmenting deficient cheekbones, the chin and/or jawline.
Q11 One of the more summerspecific cosmetic trends is an umbilicoplasty, where the appearance of oneâ€™s navel is altered. Is this procedure commonly performed to aid
in one’s confidence for their beach-ready body, or does it also provide physical health benefits? An umbilicoplasty procedure does not have any physical health benefits. While a common procedure in women, who often acquire a distorted navel due to pregnancy or piercings, it is relatively rare in men. In men an umbilicoplasty is most commonly performed to correct a congenital abnormality or effects of abdominal surgery, like a previous hernia repair.
Q12 With an increase in popularity of plastic surgery shows, such as Botched, have you noticed a growth in strange cosmetic procedure requests? Shows of this sort have not resulted in strange requests per se, at least not in my practice. But they have resulted in an increase in requests for legitimate corrective procedures. It seems people now have greater awareness of the possibility for revision after “botched” cosmetic surgery or trauma. Many of these requests, in my practice, are people who underwent their original surgery in other countries.
Q13 With an increase in the popularity of plastic surgery on social media nowadays, have you noticed a growth in male patients? The growth in male patients is multifactorial, with social media being one of the drivers. Most of my new patients still arrive as a result of old-fashioned word-of-mouth referrals but social media allows men to connect and ask questions in a discreet manner. It seems that social media and online resources are important means for men to become aware of the treatments that exist and how powerful they can be, providing incentive to seek a consultation.
Q14 What is the craziest plastic surgery trend you had a male patient request? The trend in alternative body modification, like piercings and implants (horns, rings, etc.), resulted in some unusual requests in the past. The “craziest” came from a young man wondering if I could insert glass beads under the skin of his penis. I politely declined to offer this service.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF MASSIMO FROM THE MOUNTAIN REFUGE
THE MOUNTAIN REFUGE (prefab – upon request) themountainrefuge.com
The Mountain Refuge is a tiny-house “startup” with an award-winning project: a wooden cabin that can be built where and how you want it. The structure will comprise two wooden modules for a total size of about 24 square meters, but an additional module of 12 square meters can be added for a total size of up to 36 square meters.
The cabin can be placed on the ground using prefabricated elements, which means that no specific foundation work is necessaryâ€”but a thin concrete slab may be necessary, depending on the location. Exterior and interior plywood finishes give the cabin a warm feel, which contrast with the modern front glazing (about 4x3 meters).
The equipment and interior of the house is up to youâ€“heating systems, water, electricity, and layout can all be negotiated, depending on your needs and desires. The price of each furnished and mounted cabin varies, but interested parties can request a quote and drawings at The Mountain Refuge website. The companyâ€™s longer-term goal is production and distribution as well as the design of new models, and they are currently open for partnerships.

HOTEL TIERRA CHILOĂ‰ ChiloĂŠ, Chile mobilarquitectos.cl
Mobil Architects have found a way to design a structure that merges with the rural landscape, without disturbing its terrain or the view. This hilltop Hotel brings a modern focal point to the remote landscape of southern Chile, but every aspect of the build remains connected to the land.
The bulk of the structure rests on stilts, giving the bedrooms an even better view of the nature surrounding it, while also protecting the landscape from damage. Below the living space, the hotelâ€™s infinity pool almost blends into the landscape, and common areas quite literally merge nature and luxury.
Even the exterior of the build prioritizes its connection to the land; the eco-friendly larch tilesâ€™ geometric design creates a modern aesthetic that encourages natural crossventilation, which minimizes the amount of fossil fuels needed to run the space.
U-BOAT WERX NEMO SUBMARINE €975000 NEMO-SUBMARINE.COM The U-boat Werx Nemo Submarine is the ultimate drivable submersive vehicle. With controls dedicated to both diving and recovery, the MANTA controller allows you (or your co-partner) to take supervised control of the submarine, so you can get up close and personal to everything the ocean has to offer. A clear acrylic sphere provides an all-angles view of the ocean and its underbelly; when immersed, the sphere is almost invisible, so your view stays totally unobstructed. The Nemo’s looks are just as good as its build. Like the luxury car of the submergible world, the sleek and slim Nemo takes up less space than two jet skis. While this high-end submersible seems too good to be true, it is actually the only series-made submarine in the world (meaning that you don’t need to request a custom build to get one), so you can own a Nemo submarine as soon as they’re available for purchase.

The bike’s offroad tires are rugged enough for any type of terrain, and the concept is powered by a 18.7 kWh battery capable of driving all three wheels, when necessary. The sidecar boasts a variety of straps and storage for all of your essentials (it’s not meant to carry a passenger, though), but it’s also removable, for those looking for a sleeker ride. PIAA lights and LED strips light up the bike, so early risers and night travellers stay safe and visible at all times.

ESCOBAR HOUSE Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA Architects: Luciano Kruk lucianokruk.com
The Escobar House is located in a luxurious gated community in Buenos Aires. This modern home accentuates the breathtaking landscape of Haras Santa Maria de Escobar, and the built-in privacy of the area. The back of the home opens to a terrace with a built-in swimming pool that looks onto a seemingly infinite landscape. Designer Louis Kruk expertly juxtaposes softer and more structured elements, creating a perfect balance between modern luxury and natural beauty.
Made primarily of concrete and glass, the minimal structure doesnâ€™t require much embellishment or maintenance to stand out. While the living room is both the focal point and centre of the home, the kitchen is designed with â€œarchitectural synthesisâ€? -- double height ceilings raised above the ground in order to achieve grander views over the exterior surroundings. Well-placed windows bring copious amounts of natural light into the kitchen and living room, while concrete borders create a sense of privacy from the three second-level bedrooms at the front of the house.
The structure of the house mirrors its natural surroundings. Lines of trees surrounding the property reflect the striped layout of the homeâ€™s indoor and outdoor corridors, and the rectangular-orientation of the windows. These elements pull the eye toward the landscape, and create a dialogue between the natural elements of the home and its surroundings.

THE COVE HOUSE
GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA Architects: Justin Humphrey Architect justinhumphreyarchitect.com.au Cove House is a robust yet elegant new residence in a waterside suburb south of Brisbane. Rich and tactile exploration elevates such thresholds and edges within these concrete walls. This edge was important due to the site being adjacent to easement, allowing the opportunity to engage with the neighbourhood on three sides.
The design of the kitchen is tactile and materially-rich, all while reflecting the love of subtropical architecture through spatial interplay between internal and external space. Public and private space within the house is displayed here, and ultimately invites open communication (even from passing neighbors).
An external concrete hallway invites you in through the finely-detailed bedroom, simultaneously adding luxury and refinement to the ensuite bathroom. Natural light through timber-batten screens, glass doors and wooden structures flood deep within the private living space, encouraging reflection of all aspects.
The programming of the courtyard and garden room is also a threshold between public and private spaces - further accommodating the private entry of two bedrooms via the external hall. With the gardens continuing into the heart of the house, the seamless flow of these areas further reinforces the ever-present relationship between the importance of internal and external space.

AIR CABIN (CONCEPT) Architects: Yakusha Design yakusha.design
The Air project bends the limits of architecture to create an illusion of instability. A vertical concrete wall acts as the central element of Air, anchoring the structure to its base without disrupting the structural flow or the view from the outside window.
The geometric style of the interior juxtaposes straight structural lines with rounded furniture elements and natural accent pieces. Floor-to-ceiling windows encompass the entire structure, but donâ€™t worry: the bathroom is privacy preserved with glass that offers transparency adjustments.
