Show Dad Some Love

Each year, professional organizations like the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports data regarding popular procedures. Recently, reports reveal that there has been an ongoing increase in interest in procedures for men. At our Sonterra and La Casita offices in San Antonio, we see this demonstrated in the growing popularity of nonsurgical treatments among men in our area. With Father’s Day just around the corner, we can’t think of a better way to get out of the gift-giving rut than with a rejuvenating treatment for the special man in your life.

Popular Cosmetic Treatments for Men

Cosmetic treatments aren’t what they sound like. They are procedures designed to correct common concerns such as:

  • Hair loss. Many men begin to notice thinning hair sometime around age 40. Early treatment with platelet-rich plasma can stimulate aging hair follicles to resume proper function before hair loss becomes severe.
  • Facial aging. Men are susceptible to the signs of aging such as jowls and deep creases in superficial tissue. Dr. Bucay has a number of treatments to address these concerns. Skin-tightening with Ultherapy can give Dad back his sharp, youthful jawline. Dermal fillers can smooth even deeper creases on the forehead or around the mouth.
  • Turkey neck and double chin. Often, the neck goes downhill in more ways than one. The accumulation of fatty tissue beneath the chin creates fullness that ages the face. Loosened skin sags, exacerbating this fullness. To eliminate unwanted fat from this area, we can perform Kybella or CoolSculpting. Like the face, the neck can also be tightened with Ultherapy.
  • Dad Bod. If Dad has been yearning for his old physical self and his diet and exercise program aren’t getting him quite where he wants to be, a little nonsurgical intervention can help. We are pleased to offer emsulpt, an innovative treatment that literally tones muscles with deep electro-stimulation equal to 20,000 squats or crunches.

Remember Dad in a big way this year. Contact an office near you to schedule a revitalizing, relaxing treatment with Dr. Bucay or one of our experienced staff. Dad will be smiling for months to come!

The last few weeks have borne witness to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus known as COVID-19. This is a novel virus that we do not fully understand, but whose devastating effects have been felt around the world, with no regards for borders or economies. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been forever changed by this pandemic. In the spirit of containing this pandemic, I, Dr. Bhandari, and our incredible family of dedicated professionals who make up Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics have made the difficult but necessary decision to keep our offices closed through April 3, pending any further developments.


Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our patients and our team. We are grateful to all of you for your loyalty and understanding and look forward to the time when we can resume doing what we do best - caring for you. Until then, please adhere to the recommended guidelines regarding handwashing and social distancing. Please remember that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation - the digital age allows us to be there for each other.


Warmest wishes to all of you for continued good health and strength,


Vivian Bucay, MD
