Studies show that many men feel insecure about themselves and their bodies. In fact, it is common for men to perceive themselves as physically inadequate, especially in regard to their genitals. A 2006 study by Lever, Frederick, and Peplau found that 45% of men sampled were dissatisfied with their genitals, while a 2008 study by Tiggemann et al. found that 68.3% of heterosexual men were dissatisfied with the size of their genitals. According to plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Carlos Mata, AKA Dr. Scottsdale, this is consistent with his own clientele. “We have lots of guys coming in to find out about cosmetic procedures and male enhancement,” he says. “The number of male patients we’ve seen has actually increased almost 30% as of late.”
Dr. Mata, who has also come to be known as Dr. Scottsdale®, has worked in the field of plastic surgery for over 17 years, completing upwards of 25,000 procedures in that time. Throughout his service as a Major and Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the U.S. Army, he learned different surgical techniques and cultivated skills that he now uses every day in his private practice at Natural Results Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ. “I became a plastic surgeon because I wanted to help people increase their confidence and live their own image of beauty,” he says. “I want to give people the bodies they’ve only dreamt of.”
Now, Dr. Mata is at the forefront of male enhancement innovation. Not only does he provide cutting-edge procedures based on proven research, but Dr. Scottsdale is also inventing new non-surgical treatments and techniques for male enhancement.
With his passion for innovation, Dr. Scottsdale hopes to leave his mark on the field of plastic surgery. “I want to make a positive impact on the lives of my patients, and hopefully, on the industry as a whole. I believe that the research and innovations that our clinic is pursuing will be very beneficial to the broader field of plastic and reconstructive surgery.” He hopes that his work will help to inspire further research, inventions, innovations, or advancements in the field.
