In honor of Father's Day, Dr. Milan Shah from Beautologie talked about both surgical and non-surgical treatments popular with men Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox."
But he didn't just talk -- he injected simulcast host Scott Cox with wrinkle relaxer Dysport. It's expected to last about four months.
"I feel prettier already," Cox said.
Shah said surgical trends for men include excess breast tissue reduction and hair restoration. Popular non-surgical treatments include Botox and Dysport, hair removal and skin tightening.
The doctor noted that the "plastic" in plastic surgery comes from a Greek word that means to form, or to shape. Early plastic surgery started in 2000 B.C., Shah said.
He explained that there's been an increase in retirees returning to the workforce and seeking "vigor and youthfulness," and that's part of a boom in procedures. However, people of all ages seek services and treatments.
"It's amazing how things have changed in the last five to 10 years," Shah said.
The doctor said, "Guys are wanting this a little bit more. It's refreshing."
Shah said Beautologie also offers a tattoo removal program. They also have a program whereby people can submit information about disfigurements or surgery problems they've suffered, and seek pro-bono help getting the problem resolved.
