While “men only” spas have been in existence for a while, they often have female employees and offer facials, massages and manicures. They usually don’t do surgical procedures, and there is no medical professional on the premises.
In 2014, Grant Stevens, a plastic surgeon, opened Marina ManLand next to his main office in Marina del Rey, Calif. It has a private entrance, reception area and treatment rooms with names like the Dog House, the Bear’s Lair and the Lion’s Den. The scent of new car leather and freshly cut green grass wafts through the rooms. The bathroom has a urinal and a 24-inch flat-screen TV with the making of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue playing on a loop.
“It’s very male friendly, but it’s not female unfriendly,” said Dr. Stevens, the president-elect of American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
