Boca Raton doctor sees increase in men seek

By Martin Lenkowsky

In order to stand out from their competitors in as many ways as possible, some of today’s business executives have added a new weapon to their arsenal: plastic surgery.

“People are looking for cutting-edge technology,” says Boca Raton plastic surgeon Daniel Man. “People in the business arena are looking for ways to improve their appearance. Overall, their quality of life is improved.”

In particular, Man sees a growing trend in men seeking plastic surgery. “Businessmen are interested in procedures that give fast results with little down time,” he says, adding that interest from businesswomen has been a constant.

In the past, Man says, only about 15 percent of plastic surgery patients were men; today, that number stands at 25 percent. “The first thing they look at are non-surgical procedures,” he says. “Today, we have new technology. Lasers are a way to reduce fat fast. In just 25 minutes, a businessman can reduce unwanted fat with no pain and no down time. In six to 12 weeks (of 25-minute) treatments, 24 percent of the fat will go away. It’s a big deal.”

Man, a native of Israel who studied at the University of Tel Aviv, doubles as an author, artist, inventor and educator.

His guidebook to cosmetic surgery, The New Art of Man: Faces of Plastic Surgery, combines his love of his medical specialty with his artistic ability. He’s also a painter, and he donated one of his creations to the White House to recognize President Bill Clinton’s peacemaking efforts in the Middle East.

Man says he employs that artistry when performing surgery. “I offer an artistic touch in addition to being a board-certified plastic surgeon,” he says.

Man, known for his work in skin rejuvenation, cosmetic laser surgery, liposuction, facelifts and body procedures, is a frequent guest lecturer at medical conventions and societies around the globe.

And for both men and women, the skin has always been an issue. “Everyone knows how to comb their hair and brush their teeth,” he says, adding a cream he invented, called DMMD, dries in a half-hour and helps with sun damage, redness, freckles and other skin conditions.

Man also treats a fairly common – but not often discussed – disorder some men face: gynecomastia, or an abnormal enlargement of the breast tissue in men. “A lot of men suffer with this condition,” he says. “They are not going to swimming pools.”

He estimates 40 to 50 percent of businessmen might have it. “We have a procedure to decrease breast tissue,” Man says. “It’s a surgery that combines suction and laser.”

Another increasingly popular trend for men: rhinoplasty, more popularly known as a nose job. “Men are interested in doing their noses,” Man says. “Now there are newer methods with no black and blue. They can breathe better. It’s called the open technique.”

Also, men are paying more attention to their necks, he says, mentioning an injectable treatment called Kybella that destroys fat cells under the chin. Another procedure now available is radio frequency skin tightening, which is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
