The Rise of Male Liposuction

The Rise of Male Liposuction 

Male Liposuction Before and AfterThink cosmetic surgery is just for women? Think again. “According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased by more than 106% between 1997 and 2012.” CG Cosmetic Surgery has certainly seen the increase of men coming to them for various popular cosmetic surgeries, to include abdominal and rhinoplasty surgeries. What’s the cause for the sudden need for plastic surgery from this demographic? Studies show that there a couple of different motivations driving otherwise normal men, living normal, non-celebrity lives to have plastic surgery. Below, we discuss the two driving forces, and also the most common of plastic  surgeries men are choosing.

Why Men Are Turning to Plastic Surgery

CG Cosmetic is seeing more and more men walk through the doors interested in plastic surgery, likely, the reason more men are choosing cosmetic surgery is for the same root reason than women always have, to look better in an aging body. The second layer of this, of course, is what a better-looking, more polished body actually gives them. First, it can give career professionals a leg up on their competition-unfortunately, it is just a basic instinct that the healthier, more fit, more good-looking will be a better and more successful choice for the job-in any  industry. Secondly, a man feeling better by having a six pack or a more chiseled face-as he starts to get older-helps psychologically in his entire life: feeling better about yourself, makes you more confident and able to follow your dreams, get that job, or take up that challenge.

The Most Common Surgeries Man Get

This will likely not come as a huge surprise, but still it is worth stating, as this new aspect of the market joins the playing field in cosmetic enhancement. Men over the past decade most often get liposuction as a number one choice (especially for the abdomen), as well as gynecomastia reduction, eyelid surgery, hair transplants, and rhinoplasty.

CG Cosmetic – Benefits of a Facelift

CG Cosmetic LogoThe board certified surgeons employed by CG Cosmetic perform a wide range of procedures at their Miami facility.

Some of the most commonly sought out procedures involve restoring patient’s youthful appearance. Your face is one of the main parts of your identity. When aging causes your facial appearance to look haggard or worn, it can take a toll on your confidence. Fortunately, facelifts are a common solution that can restore a natural and youthful appearance and restore lost self esteem.

A few specific problems that occur in the face due to aging include:

  • Development of jowls
  • Loss of elasticity in the face
  • Loss of muscle tone
  • Deep creases
  • Loss of neck and skin contours

Before patients undergo the facelift procedure, they are able to attend a free consultation with the skilled physicians at CG Cosmetic.

During this time, they will be evaluated to ensure they have good overall health, realistic expectations, and good skin elasticity. In addition, the pros and cons of the surgery are discussed, as well as possible risks and complications. The surgeons will then explain the procedure step by step so there are no surprises.

First, an incision is made behind the hairline and then the skin is separated from the muscles underneath.

The facial muscles are then tightened and the skin is repositioned for a tighter fit. At the incision site, the excess tissue is trimmed, revealing smoother and younger looking skin. Most patients require around two weeks for recovery.

After the surgery, wrinkles and folds in the face that make a person look tired are no longer an issue.

Patients will still age naturally, but will look and feel more youthful. A majority of patients who receive treatment from CG Cosmetic claim that the results of the surgery are rewarding and greatly outweigh the minimal discomfort involved in the recovery process.

CG Cosmetic – Botox


Botox is a safe, quick, and easy way to get rid of unwanted wrinkles. Contact CG Cosmetic Surgery for Botox treatments or consultations.

CG Cosmetic performs a number of procedures at their state of the art facility in Miami, Florida.

Botox is one of the specialties available at the clinic and can restore the youthfulness that comes from having firm, smooth skin. The abundance of satisfied customers who have received this procedure contributes to the clinic’s exceptional reputation and ever growing clientele list. More information on the clinic’s most popular procedures can be found on their tumblr.

As Botox is both safe and effective, it is one of the most popular procedures available for treating wrinkles and facial creases.

It is a quick and painless procedure, and although it does not have permanent results, it is very long-lasting.

It is a common misconception that wrinkles and facial lines are from the skin itself, when in fact, they are linked to the muscles beneath.

Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. Since the muscles are unable to contract, they begin to gently relax.

Another reason Botox is so popular is due to its convenience.

Doctors at CG Cosmetic administer the painless injections in under an hour. It will take approximately a week for the injections to take full effect and will last nearly six months. The most common age group who seeks Botox is typically those in their mid to late thirties, but this average has been greatly reducing throughout the years.

Patients enjoy the subtle and natural results Botox offers, as well as the high level of patient care provided by CG Cosmetic’s Botox specialist, Dr. Mayra Diaz.

Dr. Diaz has worked in private practice for more than 25 years and is certified for the injection of Botox and Dermal Fillers by the Aesthetic Medical Skin Institute and for Sclerotherapy by Empire Medical Training. In her competent hands, patients feel at ease that they are receiving the highest level of care possible.

**** Botox is one of the many procedures available at CG Cosmetic. The process is a safe and effective way to produce smooth, firmer looking facial skin.


CG Cosmetic – Blepharoplasty

Eyelid Surgery

CG Cosmetic specializes in completion of a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.

CG Cosmetic performs many of the latest cosmetic procedures at their state of the art Miami clinic.

One of the most popular procedures is a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. This surgery helps rejuvenate sagging eyelids that may cause a person to look old or tired. In some circumstances, drooping eyelids may block an individual’s peripheral vision, in which case a blepharoplasty is necessary for safety precautions.

The board certified surgeons employed by CG Cosmetic are able to give their patients a more rested, youthful appearance by removing fatty tissue and skin around the eye, commonly referred to as ‘bags.’

They begin by creating incisions in the creases of the eyelid that will be easy to hide post surgery. Then, they remove fatty tissue and excess skin that builds up in the lower eyelid. Before closing the incision, surgeons reposition underlying muscles to create tighter and smoother looking skin.

After the surgery, patients should expect swelling and soreness for about a week.

It is also common to experience excessive tear production, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light. Recovering patients will be provided with sunglasses, eye drops, and a special lotion to keep eyes and incisions lubricated. The surgeons at CG Cosmetic will remove the stitches roughly one week after the surgery, and patients can return to work after ten days. The side effects of the surgery should decrease rapidly at this point.

Interested in the youthful appearance a blepharoplasty can provide?

Contact CG Cosmetic to find out if this procedure is right for you. During a consultation, surgeons will discuss the procedure and what to expect, and evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for this surgery. In addition, before and after photo galleries are available in which you can view former patients’ successful transformations. Call 305-446-7277 today!

CG Cosmetic- Rhytidectomy


CG Cosmetic offers face lift services for individuals who want their faces to reclaim a youthful look.

CG Cosmetic boasts a number of highly experienced, board certified surgeons that perform the latest cosmetic procedures in South Florida.

One commonly sought out surgery that is performed at our state-of-the-art facility is a Rhytidectomy.

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, tightens loose skin to reveal a younger looking you. The symptoms of aging are often most prominent in the face, giving way to wrinkles and loose folds. Fortunately, the surgeons at CG Cosmetic are able to tighten and smoothen skin using advanced surgical techniques.

CG Cosmetic offers a free consultation for those looking to have a procedure. During this consultation, surgeons will make sure the candidates have these characteristics:


Good Overall Health

As a prerequisite to any plastic surgery, it is important that the patient is strong and healthy enough to safely undergo the procedure. In addition, you should make your physician aware of any medical conditions or medications that may affect the success of the surgery.

Good Skin Elasticity

To achieve the best results from this procedure, surgeons will check the patient’s skin elasticity. Those with healthier and more elastic skin will achieve better results.

Realistic Expectations

There are limitations with any surgery and it is important that patients understand this. A patient with realistic expectations is more likely to be satisfied with his or her results.

When it is time for the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision behind the hairline in order to separate the skin from the tissue and muscles underneath. The facial muscles are then tightened and the skin is stretched and repositioned for a smoother, tighter fit. The last step is to trim away the excess skin and close the incision site.

After surgery, it may take several weeks for the patient to fully recover. The surgeons at CG Cosmetic urge clients to practice patience during this time. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common but can be controlled with medication.

Do you want your face to have a more youthful look? A rhytidectomy may be the answer! Contact CG Cosmetic at 305-446-7277 to set up a free consultation!

CG Cosmetic – Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty - before

Are you unhappy with your facial profile and looking to make a change?

The board certified surgeons at CG Cosmetic offer rhinoplasty procedures that can drastically improve the look of your nose.  The clinic boasts excellent results, a quick recovery time, and experienced surgeons that will leave patients satisfied with their results!

CG Cosmetic offers free consultations at their Miami facility to ensure patients meet certain criteria.

Ideal candidates must be at least 15 years old with a fully developed nose. They must also be in good physical and mental health, and willing to follow the pre- and postoperative care guidelines closely to avoid risk of complications.

The main goal of a rhinoplasty procedure is to achieve balance between the nose and other facial features.

The procedure can correct a number of problems, including bumps, impressions, length, and nostril width. In addition to cosmetic issues, a rhinoplasty can also correct breathing problems due to a deviated septum. For minor aesthetic blemishes, the surgeons at CG Cosmetic may recommend a nonsurgical nose job, which involves injecting dermal filler.

Rhinoplasty - after

Open and closed rhinoplasty procedures are available at CG Cosmetic. During an open surgery, an incision is made between the nostrils on the outside of the nose.

In a closed procedure, the incisions are made inside the nose, which is where the surgery is performed. Either type of surgery can correct any undesirable feature.

After surgery, the patient will experience bleeding, swelling, and soreness, and should rest for two days. These side effects will decrease in the weeks following, but minor swelling may continue for months after.

While results of this procedure can take up to a year to fully appear, most patients are more than satisfied with their final results.

Contact CG Cosmetic at 305-446-7277 to set up a free consultation today! Consultations can be held at their state of the art Miami facility or can be arranged via Skype.

CG Cosmetic – Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck

CG Cosmetic specializes in the tummy tuck procedure, which helps patients look as young as they feel.

Abdominoplasty surgery, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure for people concerned about the shape of their stomach.

The abdomen is where fat accumulates the most and ultimately, individuals are left with stubborn folds of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Fortunately, the board-certified surgeons at CG Cosmetic have experience performing abdominoplasty surgery at their state of the art facility located in Miami, Florida.

CG Cosmetic offers free consultations to those considering a procedure at their facility.

During this consultation, surgeons will explain the procedure, risks, expectations, and recovery time.

The first step in a tummy tuck requires surgeons to make an incision across the abdomen.

Depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed, the size of the incision will vary. Doctors will work alongside patients to choose an incision site that can be easily concealed. The surgeons then separate the abdominal skin, cut it from the navel, and reposition the stomach muscles underneath. Lastly, the skin is stretched, reattached, and a new hole is created for the navel.

Since recovery time for this particular surgery is extensive, surgeons prepare patients for what to expect.

After surgery, patients may be required to stay overnight at the facility.  In addition, patients are provided with medication and compression bandages in order to control pain and swelling. Stitches will be removed one week after surgery, at which time patients can begin a light exercise regimen. Strenuous exercise, however, should be avoided for six weeks.

Most patients agree that this lengthy recovery period is a small price to pay for a flatter abdomen.

Candidates for the surgery most often include those who have experienced massive weight loss, have had a recent pregnancy, and those who have been affected by aging.  The surgeons at our Miami location evaluate patients extensively before recommending surgery in order to ensure they meet certain basic requirements.

CG Cosmetic – Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Placement

During a consultation with the plastic surgeons at CG Cosmetic, patients can learn about the different options available including the placement options shown above.

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed at CG Cosmetic is breast augmentation.

At our Miami clinic, board certified surgeons help patients from all over South Florida look and feel their best. After surgery, many women have reported feeling more attractive, confident, and feminine. To help patients better understand the procedure, CG Cosmetic provides a free consultation to prospective clients.

During the consultation, surgeons will discuss the following:

Health and Risks: In order to be a candidate for breast augmentation, patients must meet certain requirements. Those who have preexisting health conditions, image disorders, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are unsuitable candidates. Additionally, it is recommended that women in their early twenties or younger wait to have the surgery, as breast tissue may not be fully developed yet.  The surgeons will also go over the risks associated with surgery and make sure the patient has realistic expectations involving results.

Options to Consider: Choosing the right implants for your body play a crucial role in the success of the surgery. Therefore, the surgeons at CG Cosmetic will help patients decide what implant size, shape, and fill material is best for their bodies.

The Procedure: Next, the surgeon will discuss each step of the procedure, noting that the patient’s choice of implant placement and incision location will determine how the surgery is performed. For example, sub muscular placement is more invasive, requiring larger incisions for inserting the implant, as well as a longer recovery period.

Recovery: The surgeons at CG Cosmetic will make sure the patient has adequate time to heal after the surgery. The post-surgical recovery period lasts a few days, but it is likely the patient will be sore for a few weeks. During this time, it is important to reduce physical activity and follow the specific instructions provided. If any complications arise once the patient goes home, the doctors at CG Cosmetic are on call any day of the week, at any hour.
