Gladiator®, The Male Makeover

The Gladiator® procedure is a head to toe male makeover, designed to help you get the body of your dreams. This procedure is fully customizable for your needs, however, the most popular treatments include 360 liposuction, gynecomastia (removal of male breast tissue), as well as fat transfers to enhance the definition of the pectoral muscles, abdominal etching, and Brazilian Butt Lift.

The Gladiator® Procedure:

Gynecomastia surgery is designed to reduce enlarged tissue in the male breast area. This “man boobs” reduction procedure will help improve the contouring and appearance of the pectoral area. Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale® specializes in the one-stitch technique, meaning the incision is very minimal and only requires one stitch to close. The one-stitch gynecomastia technique makes the incision barely noticeable and very easily hidden. The results will be permanent as long as you maintain your body weight. The gynecomastia surgery takes about one hour and Dr. Scottsdale® will make one small incision near the areola and remove the unwanted tissue and fat. You should expect to be able to return to regular activity and exercise in four to six weeks.
Vaser Liposuction 360 is a combination of two industry-leading techniques designed to eliminate fat and contour your body. As opposed to traditional techniques that only treat one area at a time and can potentially be more irritating to your body, VASER liposuction 360 targets multiple areas with ultrasonic vibrations that help break down the fat to achieve more targeted, smoother, and natural-looking results. Additionally, the soundwaves used by the VASER to break down your fat are much gentler on nerves and surrounding tissue than other techniques, resulting in shorter downtime. Vaser Liposuction 360 is very effective and includes the upper & lower abdomen, flanks, and back. Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale® only uses this technique because the results are smoother with less swelling, bruising, discomfort, and downtime. Best of all, the fat from areas treated by VASER can be transferred to other areas of your body for additional contouring.

Add On:


Washboard abs can be very difficult to achieve even with a lot of abs workouts, diet, and different abs technology. Abdominal etching is an advanced liposuction technique that uses the strategic removal of fat to accentuate the abdominal muscles. This procedure also contours and enhances the abdominal muscles, giving you the six-pack you always wanted. Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale®’s abdominal etching technique will give you muscle definition while keeping a natural look with minimal hidden incisions.


The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular treatment designed to lift and enhance the appearance of the buttocks. The fat is removed from one or multiple areas of the body like the abdomen or flanks and reinjected into the buttocks over the muscle to decrease the risk of any complications. ​​​​​​​The Male Brazilian Butt Lift technique is different than the female technique. Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale® injects the transferred fat differently to give a natural butt that matches the male’s anatomy. The fat will be mostly used to improve the fullness and shape of the buttocks compared to the female technique where it will be transferred in the hips. Our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Carlos Mata will make sure to give you natural results for your Male Brazilian Butt Lift!


Male chest enhancement or fat transfer to the pectoralis is a technique that Dr. Carlos Mata aka Dr. Scottsdale® specializes in. The goal of pectoral fat transfer is to enhance your pectoralis muscles by giving more volume and definition. The male chest enhancement procedure consists of harvesting fat from a donor area (example: your abdominal fat) and transferring it to your pectoralis muscles.
