Before & After
Why Botox treatment?
Botox is a non-surgical injectable that is temporary, but highly effective in softening and smoothing the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and other facial wrinkles. You could see results with just one treatment – and it only takes about ten minutes! With only several tiny injections, you can expect results which lasts about three to six months. Botox treatments and other injectables are far less expensive and extremely less invasive than surgical procedures.
What’s in a Botox Injection?
Botox is a brand name for a substance that contains botulinum toxin. The chemical is purified and derived from bacteria. Commonly known as Botox and Dysport, these types of botulinum toxin type A injections block muscular nerve signals. This blockage weakens the muscle, which stops it from contracting. This results in less unwanted facial wrinkles. Botox treatments have been on the market since 1997.
What is J-Plasma?
J-Plasma is an advanced energy device from Renuvion that combines the properties of cold helium plasma with radio frequency (RF) energy. J-Plasma is a minimally invasive treatment that tightens and restores your skin without downtime.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Most men and women who are looking to tighten loose skin and contour their body are considered good candidates. To find out if J-Plasma can help you reach your aesthetic goals, schedule a consultation with Dr. Trupiano today.
How Does J-Plasma Work?
J-Plasma works by using helium plasma energy through a number of tiny incisions in the treatment area. The device begins with helium gas, and then uses radio frequency energy to ionize it. This turns the helium into a cold helium plasma.
When the plasma makes contact with the layers beneath the surface of your skin, it causes it to instantly tighten. It also encourages the production of fresh collagen, with improves your skin quality, tightness, and body contour over time.
Male Breast Reduction
Men of all ages are now looking to cosmetic surgery to improve their appearances. One of the conditions that can be helped through plastic surgery is Male Breast Reduction. This is a condition where excess breast tissue in males causes their breasts to develop, sag and stretches the areolas (the ring of pigmented skin surrounding the nipple).
Overdeveloped breasts in adult and adolescent males can be caused by a variety of factors including hormonal changes, genetics, being overweight or from taking certain medications. Enlarged breasts can cause emotional discomfort and impact a man’s self confidence. Many men with gynecomastia experience anxiety about their personal appearance and feel self-conscious in certain types of clothing. Embarrassment over having “man boobs” can be a significant source of loss of self-esteem and extreme negative feelings over one’s appearance.
Dr. Trupiano has been recognized as one of America’s Top Breast Surgeons.
What Can Male Breast Reduction Surgery Do For You?
If you have gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery is the solution for achieving a flatter, more masculine chest and silhouette. Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size while flattening and enhancing the shape of the chest. The procedure is also called gyno surgery or reduction mammaplasty.
In severe cases of overdeveloped male breasts, the heaviness of the excess breast tissue may cause saggy breasts and stretched out areolas. When this is the case, the areola position and size can be improved, and the removal of excess skin may be involved.
After gyno surgery, no longer will you experience emotional discomfort and a lack of self-confidence over your chest’s appearance. If you were avoiding certain physical activities and intimate situations simply to conceal your condition, gynecomastia surgery can shed these issues.
When you have a male breast reduction procedure to make your appearance more manlike, your self-confidence increases because you no longer have to feel self-conscious about having female-looking breasts. You can wear the clothes you like, without the worries of “man boobs”, and be able to take off your shirt in front of others without concerns of displaying enlarged, feminine-looking breasts.
What Happens During a Male Breast Reduction Procedure?
First, anesthesia is administered to avoid any discomfort or pain during the gyno surgery. You and Dr. Trupiano will discuss what’s best for you and your situation before the procedure.
Then, excess fat and glandular breast tissue will be removed from your chest area. Two methods – liposuction and excision – can be used to do this. Dr. Trupiano will advise you on what the best method(s) are to accomplish your male breast reduction.
Liposuction is an option where a fine, hollow tube is used and, once inserted, is waved back and forth to loosen and extract excess tissue through suction.
Excision is the technique where breast tissue and skin that is excessive is surgically removed. It’s also used when the areola must be reduced or repositioned.
There are some cases where Dr. Trupiano may use both methods, liposuction and excision, during the same procedure to give you the best and most natural-looking male chest contours. Depending on your circumstances and desired results, the procedure time may vary, but typically takes about one to two hours.

PRFM or platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that has recently been growing in popularity. The growth factors that exist in the plasma used help to regenerate the skin by promoting collagen production while nourishing the skin. This is a great option for patients that are looking to improve the quality of their skin while looking younger and more refreshed as well.
What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix?
The PRFM used in this facial procedure is the patient’s own blood, processed to become a more platelet concentrated version of the plasma. Platelet cells encourage cell turnover and collagen growth, revealing firmer, brighter skin. Due to the fact that a patient’s own blood is used, this reduces the change of irritation or adverse reactions.
Who is a Candidate for PRFM Microneedling?
Most men and women that have uncompromised skin and realistic expectations are good candidates for this treatment. This treatment is very effective in improving a variety of skin issues including signs of aging, textural issues, and scars. One of the best attributes of PRFM microneedling is that there is little to no change of allergy or irritation since the patient’s own blood is being used.
How is PRFM Microneedling Performed?
To begin the treatment, the practitioner will harvest blood from the patient. Once collected, the blood is spun in a centrifuge device that separates the blood from the plasma. This makes a very concentrated substance full of growth factors. Once the plasma has been processed, the platelet-rich formula is then applied to the patient’s skin. Once applied, a microneedling device will be run over the skin which helps the skin to absorb the plasma. In addition to absorption, the needles on the microneedling applicator cause micro-injuries which kick-start the skin healing process. Since the treatment is topical, downtime is minimal. After the procedure, the skin will be quite red and tender. Your skin care professional will advise you on what can be applied to the skin during the healing process.
PRFM Microneedling Results & Recovery
After PRFM microneedling, you will experience some redness for approximately 24 hours and mild swelling and tenderness for 48 to 72 hours post-treatment. Overall, the recovery time is approximately three days. Once healed, you will be left with more youthful, glowing skin. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Trupiano is the best way to find out what your specific treatment process may be like.
