When it comes getting beach-body ready, does your mind automatically think ‘bikini-ready’? Well, it’s not just ladies who want to feel and look amazing throughout summer! As the temperatures rise, many men find themselves dealing with similar issues, such as excess sweating, excess body hair and fat in unwanted areas.
Whatever you’re looking for, we want to make sure you feel fantastic this summer and look the way you want. Here are some of the most popular treatments available this season.
Do you have stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t go away? Do you want to be able to enjoy the beach without feeling self-conscious? If you find yourself in this situation, our fat freezing treatment can be the best option for you.
Also called Cristal Cryolipolysis, this procedure targets unwanted fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues – and results may be noticeable as quickly as 4 to 6 weeks. These results are permanent if you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Fat freezing is a great way to feel better about yourself, as it’s perfect in treating areas such as abdomen, flanks and male breasts. While you may have slight swelling and sensitivity in the treated area – and post-treatment massage can be a little uncomfortable for a brief period of time – you’ll be able to go about your normal life! This means you can start enjoying the warm temperatures, the sun and the beach without feeling self-conscious.
Male pattern baldness affects approximately 70% of men and can have a huge impact on your confidence. But you’re not alone in this.
Many well-known celebrities suffer from this condition as well, and several of them have opted to undergo a hair transplant. With the World Cup 2018 on, what better examples to give than famous football figures like Wayne Rooney and Jurgen Klopp?
It’s no secret that they struggled with hair loss and decided to do something about it by seeking treatment. And why not? After all, hair restoration treatments can help you to feel like yourself again and boost your self-esteem!
The DHI hair transplant method is life-altering for those who choose it. New hair continues to grow for life, meaning you won’t have to keep coming back for more sessions.
Many of the reasons men opt for this procedure is that it offers natural results that require minimal post-operative medication. After the healing process ends, no one will be able to tell you’ve undergone a hair restoration treatment, which means you can just relax and enjoy the warm weather without stressing about it, and without being embarrassed!

Another popular treatment for summertime is blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. In the UK, in 2017, there were 3276 procedures performed.
This treatment has also been opted for by some well-known celebrities; Tom Cruise, Robert Downey, Jr, and Al Pacino are just a few of the superstars who chose to tackle these first noticeable facial signs of ageing.
Hooded eyes can make you look older, impair your vision, or make you look tired, so it’s not surprising why so many prominent men have opted for blepharoplasty.
This procedure reduces drooping, removes eye bags, tightens creases and folds in the upper or lower eyelids and lifts skin surrounding the eyes – all of which is done by removing excess fat and skin from around the eye.
This facial rejuvenation technique is considered a surgical procedure, but you don’t have to worry about an excessive amount of downtime! Your stitches will be removed in four days, and swelling and bruising subside after ten days, leaving you ready to hit the beach without worrying about a thing.
Our eyelid surgery in Guernsey and Jersey is a quick procedure performed by our award-winning resident surgeon.
Hyperhidrosis and Botox
Summertime means sun, sand and water – but, for many, it also means excessive sweating, which can detract from enjoying the warm weather. Those who suffer from excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, produce more sweat than needed to regulate body temperature.
This can lead to noticeable sweat patches underneath the arms, across the chest, face, back and hands, which can be a source of embarrassment for people. Not only that, but this medical condition also impacts everyday life, such as forcing people to take regular showers throughout the day, reapply deodorant and change clothes several times a day.
Botox has been proven to reduce the amount of sweat secreted in treated areas, as it can block the nerves leading to the sweat glands. While this is not a permanent solution, since it requires ongoing maintenance, results typically last between 5 to 7 months.
You may notice the effects of this treatment the next day, although it can take up to two weeks for the full results to develop.
