A recent shift in the popular perception of plastic surgery has puzzled industry insiders, but plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Carlos Mata, aka Dr. Scottsdale®, has a few thoughts about the origins of this unexpected phenomenon. “We have seen a growing interest in cosmetic procedures and non-surgical enhancement, especially among men,” he says. “Maybe values are changing amidst the COVID pandemic, or maybe we can trace it back to the popularity of plastic surgery on social media like TikTok. Whatever the cause, it seems that people are becoming less afraid to seek cosmetic enhancement, and that’s been great news for our industry.”
Bringing Plastic Surgery into the Mainstream
Dr. Carlos Mata is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Natural Results Plastic Surgery. With 25,000 procedures and 17 years in the industry, Dr. Mata has become an expert in cosmetic procedures and male enhancement. He believes in taking a person’s individual image of “beautiful” and bringing it to life through surgical sculpting.
Dr. Mata thinks that the increase in interest may signal the end of a long-standing stigma against plastic surgery. “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,” he explains.
Non-Surgical Enhancement Provides Alternate Options for Those Opposed to Surgery
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 Trekking Across the Country for Dr. Mata’s 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.
Building Trust in the Plastic Surgery Industry
Dr. Mata is a force for progress and positive change in the plastic surgery and enhancement industry. With his commitment to diligence and care in all aspects of his work, he hopes to help grow the public’s trust in his field. From the safety of his methods to the comfort of his patients, Dr. Mata hopes to set a new standard in the field. “I just want to show people how beneficial this field can be,” he says. “We change so many lives for the better, and once we dispel the stigma once and for all, we can help even more people.” Dr. Mata will continue to provide excellent care as he pursues new developments and techniques in the field.
