My Best Friends Girl Wanted Botox and Juvederm, I Decided to Join Her - Scottsdale, AZ

I'm a 55 year old male that has completed a few procedures for "post weight loss" consequences (see my other reviews) when my bestvfriend's girl asked me about Botox. I told her I didn't know much but asked the aesthetician who used to practice in my plastic surgeons office. She told me what she knew, the pros, cons, and cautions. So I found a coupon for Botox and Juvederm at a local spa and... READ MORE

Recovering Alcoholic, Ex-smoker, Sun Exposed Male Yearning to Repair and Arrest Skin Damage. Scottsdale, AZ

I really needed advice on skin care. After I quit drinking and smoking I noticed the visible damage to my face, and wanted advice on where to go from here.

The session was worth the time and cost.... READ MORE

So we are also doing this procedure... READ MORE

Posterior Belt Lipectomy - Scottsdale, AZ

I took 1 year post-op photos of my abdominoplasty (Abscape procedure) and also had my friend take a picture of my backs musculuture since I have been exercising regularly since the "tummy tuck" (I hate that word for guys). There in the photo was the evil twin of flab that used to be on my belly. So I started researching the procedure. My understanding of a Brazilian Butt Lift is the injection... READ MORE

ABSCAPES: Abdominoplasty for Men - Scottsdale, AZ

Just the term Tummy Tuck grossed me out. As soon as I created the new terminology I was more apt to move forward with investigating this procedure. When I heard that only about 6000 men had this procedure last year it made me think, then I looked around at all the dudes and realized they don't seem to care what their gut looks like. two years ago I weighed 225 pounds on a 5'11" frame (52 years...
