Switzerland is home to the most outstanding SPAs, health centers and private clinics.
The Swiss health care system is recognized worldwide for its superior quality and innovative strength. In order to provide our sophisticated customers with the best Health & Medical Services possible, SDS works together with the prestigious and innovative Gentlemen’s Clinic.
The Gentlemen’s Clinic is the first aesthetic clinic in the world specializing only in men. The Clinic offers minimally invasive outpatient treatments in the field of plastic-cosmetic surgery as well as cosmetic-aesthetic medicine.
Men’s bodies and skin differ in many ways from women’s. It is thicker, produces more oil, contains more melanin and has better circulation. Furthermore, the connective tissue of men is tighter due to a different arrangement of individual collagen fibers. The Gentlemen’s Clinic accounts for these factors with specially adapted treatment techniques and materials in order to achieve the best possible results.
Expertise, accuracy and an impeccable standard of quality are extremely important. That is why all medical specialists at The Gentlemen’s Clinic have excellent academic backgrounds with many years of experience. Continuous further education ensures that those experts maintain the highest possible standard.
As a guest at The Gentlemen’s Clinic, you might like to seize the opportunity and enjoy a trip through Switzerland – before or after your treatment: see the majestic mountains, glacier-fed lakes and natural forests, breathe the clean Alpine air, visit museums, galleries, high-end shops, and enjoy unique and authentic experiences. SDS will provide an exclusive and tailor-made travel program for you.
Using a very fine needle, a protein taken from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum can be injected into the desired muscles in order to smooth out lines and wrinkles by blocking neuromuscular transmission.
A neurotoxic protein is ideal for treating frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. After just a few days, the patient will appear more calm and relaxed while the facial expression remains natural. The maximal effect is reached after about four weeks post-injection and will last for four to six months.
Hyaluronic acid is an important autologous substance, the main function of which is to retain water and bind it within the body. With increasing age, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the tissue decreases; the skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles start to form. When tiny amounts of this filler are injected into the skin using a very fine needle, the results are immediate: The skin looks naturally healthy, wrinkles are flattened and lost volume is refilled.
The effect of hyaluronic acid is long-lasting, but not permanent. As time goes by, hyaluronic acid is degraded by the body’s natural processes. Most guests come back for a refresher treatment after six to twelve months.
Autologous fat grafting is particularly useful when more volume is desired in the face. Autologous fat is thus often used to fill deep creases such as nasolabial wrinkles, a sagging mouth or sunken-in cheeks.
The autologous fat is retrieved via liposuction; the liposuction is either performed previously as a fat reduction treatment, or it is done for the sole purpose of retrieving autologous fat. Because autologous fat is a product of the patient’s own body, there is no chance of an allergic reaction or rejection of the injected tissue.
Over time, the skin loses its elasticity, and the underlying fat tissue slowly retreats. The development leads to excess skin tissue around the neck and chin, as well as the formation of deep wrinkles – around the lower eyelid, across the nasolabial fold and down to the neck.
For the purposes of a face/neck lift, excess skin tissue can be removed, wrinkle formation can be eliminated and sagging fat deposits can be shifted, leading to a significant change in the face. Face lifts are among the most common treatments in plastic-cosmetic surgery.
The results of a face lift can last for over 10 years, after which point an additional treatment is possible.
Thread lift is a gentle method – using no scalpels or incisions – for skin tightening. Under local anesthetic, special threads are inserted under the skin, raising and supporting it. In just a few minutes, a tired face looks young and fresh again; this effect will continue to improve over the next few months.
Thread lifting is recommended for lifting the chin and cheeks, corners of the mouth, nasolabial fold, midface, neck and eyebrows. Depending on the guest’s wishes, autologous fat or other fillers (hyaluronic acid or Sculptra®) can simultaneously be introduced.
Sculptra® is an injectable poly-L-lactic acid that induces the production of new collagen in the depths of the skin. The collagen adds volume, corrects signs of facial aging and improves the elasticity of connective tissue.
Sculptra® is recommended for
• superficial as well as deep wrinkles in the area between the nose and mouth (nasolabial wrinkles), the corners of the mouth, and the chin
• loss of volume around the cheekbone
• sunken cheeks
• fading facial contours
• reconstruction of the skin’s elasticity on entire facial areas or on the lower half of the face
Sculptra® is not a filler with an immediate effect, but rather a stimulus for the regeneration of collagen. For this reason, the treatment takes time: Depending on the patient, up to four treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results.
After approximately six weeks, you can already see signs of the skin beginning to tighten. The harmonious effects of the treatment will be most visible after three to four months as the body needs this time to naturally resynthesize the connective tissue. The effects of Sculptra® last for up to two years.
Ultherapy™ is a revolution in the field of skin smoothing and is an attractive alternative to surgical procedures.
This non-invasive cosmetic treatment is performed without operation or injections: A densely concentrated ultrasound induces an enhancement of the body’s regeneration processes. The goal is for the skin to tighten and for loose skin to become firmer. Ultherapy™ can treat deep tissue layers of the skin that had previously required surgery. The final results of Ultherapy™ will be visible after a couple of months, and may continue to improve for up to six months.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is one of the newest innovations in the area of cosmetic medicine for wrinkle smoothing, skin rejuvenation and bio-stimulation. This method uses a special substance, taken from the patient’s own blood, called platelet-rich plasma. This extract is rich in active ingredients which promote deep-level skin resurfacing, thereby reducing existing wrinkles and preventing the appearance of new wrinkles.
The subcutaneous injection of PRP activates connective tissue cells (fibroblasts), which in turn stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The result: improved texture and regeneration of skin and connective tissues, from the inside out. Wrinkles smooth out, the skin appears healthy and fresh.
The areas of application for PRP include:
• optimizing the complexion
• smoothing skin and reducing wrinkles
• stimulating hair growth
• accelerating the healing of critical wounds
PRP treatment is completely natural and highly effective: Because PRP is an autologous substance, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. In contrast to other treatment methods, PRP treatment gives results that can last for up to two years.
With age, the thin skin of the upper and lower eyelid, as well as the eyelid’s muscle, continuously lose elasticity. Excess skin on the lower eyelid will result in unattractive bags under the eyes. This part of the aging process is often considered to be very bothersome.
The eyelid correction takes about one to two hours. The first post-op check-up is one day after the eyelid correction. Five to ten days later the second check-up takes place; the stitches are removed and the wound examined carefully.
The cause of protruding ears may be a malformation of the ear cartilage or a weakly formed ear crease. The ear cartilage can be reformed and fixed into a new shape. Today, ear correction is a routine outpatient procedure.
The cartilage of the ears’ pinna is subtly reshaped from an incision hidden behind the ear, the outer contours of the ear can now be modeled into the desired shape. After about 10 days, the bandage is taken off and the sutures are removed. Because the ear is still sensitive, a headband should be worn at night for 4 weeks following the procedure, allowing the ear to stabilize. It will take about 6 months for the ear to become completely fixed in place and regain its original resilience.
Gynecomastia – an enlargment of the breast tissue in men – is perceived by many to be aesthetically unattractive. It occurs in lean and obese men alike. The root cause can usually be traced to a hormonal imbalance. Obesity and consumption of hormones in food, however, can also be contributing factors.
For the best results, a combination of two different methods is normally used: In the first step, excess fat is extracted. In the second step, the glandular tissue is then removed through a tiny incision in the nipple.
The treatment of male breasts is performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic; the patient can return home immediately after surgery. The skin will immediately tighten after the treatment, creating an attractive, long-lasting result. The procedure is painless and leaves no visible scars.
Stubborn, diet-resistant fat pouches can be quickly and effectively treated with liposuction. Once the fat is eliminated, the result is permanent and the unwanted fat pads will not reappear. Men most often request liposuction to treat male breasts, flabby stomachs, double chins, and “love handles”.
Fat distribution in the human body is mainly determined by genetics and nutrition. While exercise and diet can reduce the volume of your fat cells, the number of fat cells in your body is based purely on genetics and cannot be actively influenced.
Ultrathin, hollow micro-needles (1-3 mm) are used for the removal of fat cells from the connective tissue without any destruction of surrounding tissue. The incisions made are tiny (1-2 mm) and heal virtually without a trace.
Cryolipo® refers to the long-lasting reduction of fatty tissue through a process of controlled cooling which allows for non-invasive local reduction of fat cells. The application of low temperature to fat cells leads to a controlled cell death; the fat cells are destroyed by the body’s natural healing processes. CryoMAN is the world’s first cryolipolysis technology that has been especially developed for men. The Gentlemen’s Clinic is the first and so far only clinic offering this new technology in Europe.
The procedure with CryoMANTM is painless and takes about an hour per treated area. Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately following the treatment, and no follow-up treatments are necessary.
The final result of CryoMANTM is normally visible after 2-4 months, sometimes even sooner. The targeted fatty layer can be reduced by a third of its original volume per treatment.
After massive weight loss, loose skin around the stomach can lead to a sagging belly. A tummy tuck involves the removal of excess skin, leaving virtually no scarring. The result is a permanently slim silhouette.
For this, the incision is made horizontally, starting in the pubic area and arching over to the hip bones. The navel must be repositioned and stitched into place, the subcutaneous adipose tissue is loosened. The abdominal muscles are fitted, before the corresponding incision in the skin is closed. It is important to gather all of the skin on the stomach and hips, without leaving any remaining flaps of skin. If desired, excess fat deposits can be eliminated during the same procedure via liposuction.
Liposonix® destroys unwanted body fat using highly developed ultrasound technology in only one treatment session. The result is permanent, and the fatty tissue will not return.
Liposonix® has its effect at the depth of 0.6cm-2.8cm beneath the surface of the skin. Fat cells are heated and destroyed without damaging the skin. After the procedure, the natural healing process of the body begins, eliminating the fat cells completely.
The treatment is virtually painless. Until the final result is visible, it can take up to 8-12 weeks, possibly longer. The average circumference reduction can amount to 5-8 cm.
Important: Treatment with Liposonix® is suited for small, localized areas only. When it comes to larger fat pads, Liposonix® cannot replace weight loss and/or a surgical procedure such as liposuction.
Aqualyx® makes it possible to safely and securely eliminate unwanted body fat with the use of injections.
Aqualyx® consists of phosphatidylcholine – a natural substance which, if given in high doses, can cause the destruction of fat cells. Developed by Dr. Motolese, Aqualyx® is a safe, Swissmedic-approved product that is permitted in Switzerland for the use of chemical dissolution of fat in targeted areas. The procedure consists of a set of injections, administered 3 weeks apart, whereby Aqualyx® is injected into the targeted area. Aqualyx® leads to a permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, fat cells will not reappear.
Important: Treatments with Aqualyx® are only applicable for small, localized areas. In the case of larger fat pads, Aqualyx® cannot replace weight loss and/or surgical procedures such as liposuction.
The weight loss plans developed at The Gentlemen’s Clinic are tailored to the exact needs of each of our guests. The desired weight reduction is also often paired with a liposuction.
Liposuction serves to shape the body and eliminate problem zones, but it cannot be used for general weight loss or fat burning. Only the subcutaneous fat – i.e. the fat that lies between the skin and the underlying muscles – can be suctioned out. Deep-lying fat, such as visceral fat (which surrounds the internal organs), cannot be removed via liposuction.
Liposuction cannot replace a proper diet, but it can serve as an initial “kick off” for weight loss.
We will create an individualized plan based on the needs and wishes of the guest; this will include a sustainable nutritional adjustment, thereby guaranteeing long-lasting weight loss. If needed, the treatment can be repeated at regular intervals.
The Gentlemen’s Clinic Geneva uses the most reliable and standardized technique for penis lengthening (lengthening LPS): This treatment consists of a partial sectioning of the suspensory ligament of the shaft, a dissection and incision of the superficial areas of the medial and lateral fascia of the ligament, as well as a cutaneous reconstruction. The penis lengthening procedure allows for a 2-3 centimeters gain, this result may vary from one individual to another.
The penis lengthening treatment is painless, takes around 30 minutes and is conducted under local anesthesia (sometimes in combination with a sedation). Directly after the treatment, the patient can go back home and return to work the next day. Most daily activities are possible 2-4 days after the procedure but a break in sexual activities is required during four weeks.
Please note that intimate surgeries are currently only performed by our expert in Geneva.
Today, the safest and most reliable method of penis thickening (thickening LPS) consists of autologous grafting of adipose tissue. This effective procedure allows for an increased circumference of ca. 1-2 centimeters or even more, depending on the transplant’s adherence as well as the number of sessions conducted. Indeed, via consecutive sessions, the increase in girth can reach up to 5 centimeters.
The transplant of autologous fat has the advantage of not causing allergic reactions or rejection, as it was harvested from the patient itself. The outcome of a thickening lipopenosculpture can be assessed over a medium term: part of the grafted fat tissue will generally subside within 3-6 months, while the rest will permanently remain. Both penis thickening and lengthening procedures are often combined in a single treatment for optimal results.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is the latest innovation against hair loss. This method uses a special substance, taken from the patient’s own blood, called platelet-rich plasma. This extract accelerates the body’s natural healing process and stimulates the rejuvenation and the regeneration of cells.
The injection of PRP directly into the scalp stimulates microcirculation as well as stem cells at the hair’s roots. The result: Hair loss is slowed, while new growth is simultaneously supported.
PRP treatment combats hair loss in the following ways:
• blood vessel cells are stimulated
• growth factors are released
• damaged hair roots are repaired, and new hair root cells are stimulated
PRP treatment is completely natural and highly effective: Because PRP is an autologous substance, there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
The Gentlemen’s Clinic uses the most modern and gentle technique for hair transplantation – the DHI technique. It consists of extraction and direct implantation of the hair follicles without intermediary handling and preparation under the microscope as is the case with other techniques (such as FUE or FUT). Every hair is extracted and re-implanted individually, which significantly increases growth rates and also enables a much better and absolutely natural-looking result.
The entire hair transplantation is performed under local anesthesia, and there are no resulting stitches or scars from the treatment.
The Gentlemen’s Clinic uses the most modern and most gentle hair transplantation method for beard transplants: The Direct Hair Implant (DHI) technique. This patented method removes hair follicles individually and implants them again directly; the growth rate of the transplanted hair is thereby increased significantly because – unlike with older methods – it is no longer necessary to store and process the extracted grafts beforehand.
As with hair transplants, beard transplants primarily use hair from the back of the head. The special Direct Hair Implant (DHI) method removes single hair follicles and re-implants them individually; interim storage and processing of the extracted grafts is therefore no longer necessary. This explains why the growth rate and density of newly implanted hair follicles is significantly greater than with other methods such as FUE or STRIP.
Hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating, those affected suffer from permanently moist hands and visibly sweat-drenched clothing. Using the injection of a neurotoxic proteine in the area of the sweat glands, it is possible to precisely and completely block the source of secretion.
Approximately 2-4% of the population in Switzerland suffers from hyperhidrosis. The treatment of hyperhidrosis using a neurotoxic proteine is a fast, highly effective therapy. It involves blocking the cholinergic nerve endings that release acetylcholine, a chemical signaling substance; the result is a reduction in sweat secretions. The effects of treatment last for about 4 to 12 months, at which point the treatment can be repeated.
Gentle laser treatments can remove bothersome hairs permanently and effectively: hair-covered zones are treated with laser impulses, each lasting only a fraction of a second. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, the resulting heat then leads to the dissolution of the hair’s root.
Thanks to this new dynamic sliding technique, dark hair as well as light hair can effectively be removed, which had not been possible before. The integrated cooler offers the skin greater protection and makes the treatment much more comfortable compared to previous models.
Depending on the body area, the treatment may need to be repeated several times, usually about 6-8 times over a span of several months, until the desired results are achieved. The ideal duration between treatments is about 6-12 weeks, which corresponds to the natural cycle of hair growth.
