Dr Chia Tan is a UK trained medical doctor that specialises in cosmetic medicine and testosterone replacement therapy. He is also the founder of Harley Street Medical Doctors. Here he explains the cosmetic and testosterone divisions he offers, and how these procedures can benefit you.
Hi Dr Tan, what do you specialise in?
Men’s health and non-surgical cosmetic medicine. At Harley Street MD, we want you to stay fit, feel great and exude confidence at work and in the bedroom. We offer services such as non-surgical cosmetic procedure, anti-ageing medicine, medical assistance for those who take anabolic steroids, testosterone replacement therapy, treatment for erection dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
What is your most popular male cosmetic surgery procedure and why do you think that is so?
Non-surgical procedure is by far the most popular treatment and results are often very natural with minimal downtime. Our aesthetic division provides cutting edge, non-surgical procedures with bespoke treatment plans, based on your specific personal needs and expectations. All aspects of aesthetic medicine are offered, including dermal fillers, wrinkle softening injection, anti-ageing chemical peel, radiofrequency skin tightening, HIFU facelift, fat dissolving injection, fat freezing, ultrasonic body contouring and so on. Your treatment will be conducted by a GMC registered medical doctor in a CQC-regulated premise.
The most popular male cosmetic procedure in my clinic is tear trough treatment. We live in a busy city with lots of stress and not a lot of rested sleep. If you observe closely, a lot of us have a semi-circular dip or depression, extending from the inner eye area to the upper cheek. This is called a tear trough hollow, and these dark circles often create unflattering shadows and give an appearance of tiredness.
The good news is soft fillers can be injected to lift these hollow area, removing the tired look and simultaneously lighten the dark circles caused by the shadow effect. This is a revolutionary and virtually painless non-surgical eye-lift treatment that can provide instant results with almost no downtime. The treatment is very subtle but also very effective.
What is testosterone replacement therapy and why would someone need it?
Our wellness division provides specialist services in helping men with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and low testosterone. This is a self-referral service where you can get your complete blood work and treatment for symptoms of testosterone deficiency syndrome.
Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) is extremely effective in helping men who has low testosterone and are suffering from low sex drive, lack of energy, irritability, night sweat and erection issues. It comes in the form of injection, topical gel or oral capsule. Treatment is bespoke and tailored to individual’s lifestyle and preference.
Men live longer now compared to years ago. We all want to be more energetic and exude confidence in our work lives, we all want to enjoy our hobbies regardless how strenuous they are physically or challenging they are mentally and we most certainly want to feel on top of the world when it comes to sex. Age should not restrict us from what we enjoy our lives. Special moments with our loved ones in the bedroom certainly keep us young, happy and fulfilled. TRT may not be suitable for everyone, but for those who have low testosterone, it surely helps them to regain control of their lives!
You specialise in steroid harm reduction too – how do you do this?
I have always been interested in fitness. There are a lot of men currently taking anabolic steroids to improve their physique. It can be dangerous to use anabolic steroids, especially without sufficient knowledge and medical supervision. Most of them are afraid to disclose this to their doctors. I want to change that and I want to help this group of men. My clinic provides a unique medical service for those who chose to use anabolic steroids recreationally. We respect individual choices and ensure everyone is treated non-judgmentally and non-coercively. At Harley Street MD, we believe in harm and hazard reduction. We do not promote, endorse or prescribe performance enhancement drugs for illicit use, but we know there is a niche of individuals that desperately requires medical attention to treat side effects associated with anabolic steroids, prohormone or growth hormone use.
At Harley Street MD, we provide blood work and medical care to minimise complication, we assist oestradiol control, treat acne flare up, restore HPTA function with PCT, reverse rising haematocrit level with venesection, provide education on safe injection technique and needle disposal. Whether someone is planning his first cycle or someone who is an experienced bodybuilder currently blasting and cruising, we have a lot to offer. The consultation is private and confidential and no referral is required.
What other procedures do you offer which could appeal to our readers?
We all want to look good for the summer. At Harley Street MD, we provide a wide range of services to help people to lose excess fat and inches from their waists. Aqualyx® is a CE marked fat dissolving medicine, it can be injected to local adipose tissues to remove the excess fat permanently! It is also one of the most popular body contouring treatment in my clinic. What makes us better than other clinics is that we couple the Aqualyx treatment with 3D LIPO technology. State of the art 3D Ultimate machine will be used right after the Aqualyx treatment to maximise fat loss. Diet and exercise advice will be provided, weight and body fat percentage will be monitored. For those who are eligible, we also prescribe medicine to help them achieve their healthy weight.
