Bodybuilder Season is about to Strike! Check out the Sculpting Procedures that Help a Bodybuilder Bulk Up and Lean Out

shutterstock_96813160Sometimes the process of bodybuilding and working out is not enough. You need a little cosmetic help. Fortunately, you can obtain six-pack abs and developed biceps without resulting to steroids or long and strenuous hours in the gym. While it is still important to work out, it does not hurt to obtain some assistance from augmentation or sculpting therapies.

You may be a bodybuilder who is competitive or a man who wants more definition for your bodybuilding efforts. Commonly requested bodybuilder procedures include high-defintiion lipo-sculpting of the abs, high-definition pec enhancement and gluteal enhancement. The liposuction or liposculpting that is performed is done to remove the undesirable fat that stubbornly does not respond to exercise or diet. If you want the ultimate bodybuilder physique, then liposuction or liposculpting is a viable solution.

What to Expect

When a bodybuilder patient opts for high-definition liposuction to enhance the look of his abdominals, he will need to wear a compression garment, use drainage tubes or take antibiotics while healing. Usually, the recovery process goes well as patients normally return to work or other act ivies in only a few days. However, medical professionals recommend that strenuous exercise by avoided for a month.

Pec Enhancement

If you want to define your pectoral muscles, implants are suggested for bodybuilding candidates who cannot seem to develop their chest as they would like with regular bodybuilding routines. If you want to look your best, then pectoral implants may be the answer. Implants can also be added to the biceps to enhance the muscles in this area. Most bodybuilding candidates either opt for abdominal sculpting or pec enhancement to supplement their workout activities.

To define the pecs, the enhancement surgery involves creating a small incision in the area of the armpit. The implants that are used are kept intact by the pectoralis muscle. Muscle functioning is not impaired, permitting a patient to freely exercise after healing. Unlike the implants that are used for female patients, these implants are not filled and therefore feel firm to the touch.

Gluteal Augmentation

Bodybuilder candidates who wish to re-define their buttocks may find gluteal enhancement the right solution. The procedure offers a more balanced profile by augmenting the buttocks with silicone implants or with injections of a patient’s body fat.

Usually, bodybuilders opt for gluteal enhancement when they cannot develop their gluteal muscles to the point that they are proportionate with the rest of the body. The most common technique for gluteal enhancement is the transfer of fat. Fat grafting or fat injection is proven to be an effective and safe process which also provides natural results.

After gluteal augmentation, patients are told not to sit down or lie on their back for about three weeks. A special compression garment is worn in order to lessen swelling. Swelling is a normal post-procedure result as is some bruising and discomfort. Patients usually return to their daily activities or work in about three weeks after the augmentation. The swelling subsides after about six weeks.

Do you want to make a resolution for a better body this spring? Then you need to make a consultation now and not later. Be your best self and be fabulous at any age.

As Barbie gets a makeover for the first time in 57 years, Pixee Fox tells us she’s had 16 surgeries, including the removal of six ribs, to look like the iconic doll.

Mattel broke the mold last month, adding curvy, petite and tall Barbies to its online store collection. The toy company said the doll is meant to replicate the shape of “real” women and plans to put the new Barbies in stores come March.

The change comes at a time when cosmetic procedures have skyrocketed in the U.S., with an estimated 15.6 million surgeries carried out in 2014.

The Difference Between Lean & Buff

The Procedures to Assist in Creating Each Look!

shutterstock_lean_buff_body

shutterstock_lean_buff_body

There is a difference in looking lean or buff. As a result, certain plastic surgery procedures are designed to create each kind of look. Therefore, what you choose depends mainly on your personality, your level of activity, the kinds of sports you are interested in and how you want to be perceived.

What Look Do You Want to Convey?

So, who are you? Do you want to be perceived as the “Bodybuilder” type (buff) or the leaner or slimmer sports figure type (“Athletic Dad)? You can achieve a lean and toned look or look like you regularly body-build with one of various procedures.

Hi Def Liposculptng for Men

For example, if you wish to have more definition, or look more buff, you might want to consider hi def liposculpting for men, a less-invasive method of effectively and safely eliminating fatty deposits that do not seem to go away. This type of procedure is used on a man’s abs to better define them as well. It can also be used on other areas of the body, such as the stomach and waist to get rid of lingering fat that does not go away through diet and exercise. So, whether you want a more “buff” look or wish to appear leaner, this is the procedure for you.

The process itself can last from an hour to five hours. It just depends on the amount of fat removal. Either a general or local anesthesia is used, depending on what area or areas are being treated. This part of the procedure is discussed during a pre-operative appointment.

For post-hi def liposculpting, compression garments, antibiotics and/or drainage tubes may be required to help facilitate healing. Many of the patients in NYC return to their jobs in only a few days. Any strenuous activity should not be executed for about 30 days following the surgery.

Hi Def Pec Enhancement

Some men can have their bodies resculpted by hi def pec enhancement. Using pectoral implants can enhance of the shapes of body builders who want a fuller muscular look – one that they have not been able to achieve through bodybuilding routines.

After the Surgery

Surgery for this kind of enhancement requires general anesthesia and entails making a small incision in the armpit. The pectoral implants stay in place as they are located beneath the pectoralis muscle. The muscle functioning is not hampered when the procedure is performed. Therefore, patients are able to exercise after they heal. The implants do not feel firm when touched, such as the implants made for females. Most patients experience some soreness after surgery. Full activity or more strenuous pursuits are barred for around six week. However, normal activity can continue after about seven days.

Gluteal Enhancement

Some buff looking guys opt for a gluteal enhancement by either fat transfer or by an implant. This process is done to make up for any deficit of a fat deposit in the area of the buttocks.

More Ways to Get Rid of Fat and Look Streamlined and Slim

Men who want to keep a lean look can opt for such procedures as CoolSculpting (which uses a freezing process to permanently remove fat cells or liposuction. Either of these processes (plus the hi def liposculpting) will get rid of ever-lingering fat.

So, there is a difference between buff and lean. Buff references a bodybuilder’s look while lean refers to a slim and trim and athletic physique.

Dr. Steinbrech Created Forbes Inspired Millennials

12540647_10100334469358335_2976070247886654215_nForbes featured the most important trends for business-minded millennials to follow in 2016… Dr. Steinbrech provided credible insight for young readers seeking to gain an edge on the competition. Read full article here…

2) Niche businesses more routinely outperforming broader-visioned ones.

In a day and age where so much noise fills our airwaves, it is becoming more difficult to get a consumer’s attention and less helpful to be a one-stop shop. Instead companies will continue leveraging targeted ads, the ability to focus on niche markets or clientele, and the freedom to create new categories of products and services that become ever more specific and made with only a small amount of people in mind originally.

Take for example Dr. Douglas Steinbrech and his male plastic surgery practice in New York. Because of how niche Dr. Steinbrech’s services are – he only does aesthetic surgeries for men who want to look younger and more attractive instead of reparative surgeries –  he’s quickly becoming known as the go-to surgeon for men who want to take on the body types of either a male model, a bodybuilder, an athletic dad, or a confident CEO. Businesses like Dr. Steinbrech’s practice will only become more common this year as utilizing our global connectivity to amplify your company’s uniqueness and speak directly to the small percentage of people that will go absolutely crazy for what you have to offer becomes easier than ever before.

theinsiderlist.com

World-renowned expert of male aesthetics, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech has officially revealed male plastic surgery’s 2016 list of top requested faces. It’s a huge misconception that plastic surgery procedures are strictly for women. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of treatments for men has increased by more than 106% within a decade’s time. The most common transformations are motivated by the ideal masculine standard of athletes and Hollywood heartthrobs to compete in the job market, maintain youth, and socially thrive within business or to regain a strong sense of self-confidence.

Currently, jawline enhancement/augmentation or facelifts are in popular demand, dominating the overall male plastic surgery trend due to the widespread appeal of entertainment industry professionals. A-listers, athletes, models and men with other superhero-esque characteristics are shaping a new vision among the masses- raising expectations, while customizing techniques. The man-makeover requires a formula of balanced proportions creating the perfect facial structure to these famous faces. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in assessing and defining the proper height, width and symmetry for his patients to successfully achieve the desired appearance of the most requested looks as follows…

Turkeys are Popular During the Holidays but Not Turkey Necks

What You Can Do to Get Rid of a Wattle Neck

Slide11-e1414763019285Are you plagued with an unsightly neck? Do you find yourself wearing your fair share of scarves or other clothing items designed to act as decoys to cover your turkey neck? If so, you might need to make a New Year’s Resolution to shed yourself of the wrinkles once and for all.

One Resolution You May Want to Keep

One of the ways that turkey neck can be eliminated is by opting for a neck lift. Because the neck is one of the places where aging shows first, a neck lift can greatly transform a man’s appearance. Some of the processes used in a neck lift include removing any excess skin, altering the neck muscles, using liposuction to remove excess fat and injecting the neck with Botox to address issues with bands or fullness. Naturally, a consultation is in order if you need to have this procedure undertaken. Discuss your expectations with your surgeon. Just make sure you approach the procedure realistically.

A turkey wattle neck is often the most common concern that is addressed when scheduling a neck lift. However, the procedure is often used to reduce the look of a double chin too. In the instance of a turkey neck, the surgeon will probably suggest making cuts beneath the chin or behind the ear to access the platysma, or the neck muscle. Sometimes the procedure involves removing part of this muscle. However, newer procedures may allow the surgeon to make smaller incisions using endoscopic equipment.

When Liposuction is Part of the Process

If liposuction is needed, the surgeon will make a small incision below the chin to remove the excess fat. When liposuction and a neck lift are combined, the surgeon will perform the liposuction first. You can determine whether or not you need liposuction during a consultation.

If you have too much skin on your neck, the surgeon will trim off parts of the skin and then lift the skin, securing it with stitches, glue or tissue. It takes about 3-4 hours, depending on the complexity. Usually, a compression bandage is used, which is worn for about 7 days, unless otherwise directed.

A Beneficial Boost

The main benefit of getting a neck lift is to diminish the look of unattractive jowls or wrinkles. Once a neck lift is performed and the excess skin and vertical lines are removed, you will automatically look years younger – a beneficial boost to your overall self-esteem.

Sometimes neck lifts are performed in combination with a face lift. Therefore, a consultation is again necessary to determine your specific cosmetic needs. However, that being said, a saggy neck is still distracting even if the face looks relatively youthful. Many men neglect the neck in lieu of the face, which seemingly speeds up any premature aging in the neck area.

Fatty deposits underneath the chin, loose or excess skin and lax muscles all produce the jowly look of a turkey neck. This kind of development can obscure both the definition of the chin and the jaw line. Therefore, some of the prime benefits of getting rid of a turkey neck include:

  • Correction of jowls
  • Elmination of fat deposits beneath the chin
  • Elimination of excess skin
  • Tightening of the jaw line

Regardless of one’s age, a turkey neck is frequently the result of genetics. Therefore, no amount of exercise or facial care will sufficiently correct the appearance. A neck lift is an ideal option then for candidates who are somewhat younger and have recently lost a good deal of weight – all which resulted in a loose and sagging neck. However, they also may feel they are not quite ready to contemplate facial surgery.

When you have a tight and smooth neck, you will suddenly look more youthful. If you want to enjoy future holidays and wear less in the way of scarves or turtlenecks, then make a New Year’s Resolution to schedule a consultation for a neck lift procedure after the holidays.

Beauty Is A Gift Every Holiday

 

12339467_954090584679922_4914753576428557265_o (1)Male Plastic Surgery is a fading stigma… So why not give the man in your life the gift which keeps on giving? Providing a man the freedom to achieve his ultimate aesthetic goals allows him to regain an edge on the competition, feel young, confident, and look his most powerful self!

Getting a bit of work done is no longer something to hide; celebrities and even regular men and women proudly tell the world.  The popularity of male plastic surgery is on the rise. Let’s take a quick look at a few of the driving factors.

Minimally Invasive Options

Cosmetic surgery used to involve big cuts, long scars and missed work for recovery, but things are changing. Minimally invasive treatments /procedures greatly exceed the number of surgical treatments performed each year. For example, last year, there were almost 14 million minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, compared with just 1.6 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the U.S. Botox alone saw a record setting 6.7 million treatments performed.

The strategy, customization and level of invasiveness make cosmetic before and afters more accessible and desired. They often require a shorter recovery period than their surgical alternatives and tend to be more affordable. Best of all, the results are more subtle than surgery, allowing people to look better without making a drastic or overwhelming change. Minimally invasive options like injectables, body contouring and IPL make cosmetic surgery appeal to the masses and perfect choices to get through the holidays and beyond!

  • Botox– Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the U.S. and for good reason. It can smooth away wrinkles and leave your skin looking refreshed. Treatment takes just a few minutes with results that last 3-4 months. To look party perfect with Botox, plan on receiving treatment at least 7 days before your first holiday party. You’ll enjoy the results of this treatment through the New Year.  Dysport is a similar treatment option.
  • Injectable Fillers– Another great rejuvenating option is a dermal filler treatment. These injectable fillers add volume, fill in wrinkles, etc. Treatment is quick and well tolerated with no downtime. Injectable fillers can even be used to plump up the lips for a non-surgical lip augmentation.

For those surgical options that are available, results are looking better than ever. Breast augmentation (gynecomastia) looks surprisingly natural and a facelift no longer looks tight and pulled. New methods and highly advanced surgical innovations mean successful results whether you opt for the minimal, mild or the surgical options.

Whether it is the ultimate, sculpted body of his dreams which awaits him, or a non-invasive injectable or technique taking years off of his face, cosmetic enhancement can be the perfect package this holiday season. Get a jump start for spring (the season of renewel), by undergoing a transformation now. Turning back time, starts before the clock strikes midnight this New Years! What are you waiting for?

The Four Types of Men Who Get Plastic Surgery and the Best Procedures For Them in NYC

As Featured on ForMen.com

Logo-with-tag

It’s a huge misconception that plastic surgery is for women. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic procedures for men has increased by more than 106% between 1997 and 2012, with the most common procedures being liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose job), eyelid surgery, gynescomastia (removal of breast tissue), and ear shaping.

Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, a renown Manhattan-based plastic surgeon, told Business Insider, that men want plastic surgery for two reasons: to look good and stay competitive in the job market.

RELATED: Guide To Men’s Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

On his all-male plastic surgery website, he outlines four “types” of men that he says typically come in for surgery, and the best procedures for them:

  • The Male Model: He wants jawline augmentation, “hi-def liposuction” to show off his abs, pectoral implants and gluteal implants.

Steinbrech: “You take an average, good-looking kid, and you enhance his jaw, elongate his chin, enhance his cheekbones, and suddenly he looks like the cover of Vogue.”

  • The Body Builder: He wants similar procedures as the male model, but wants to look more muscular. Steinbrech says he also often removes the fatty tissue around the breasts from steroids.
  • The CEO or Board Member: These men are at the top of their career and they feel young and confident, but they’re worried they don’t look it. Steinbrech gives them the “Forbes Facelift”: a necklift, eyelift, jawline re-contouring, and perhaps liposuction as well.
 Steinbrech: “I tell these men I want to leave a little bit of wrinkles — since wrinkles are sexy and trustworthy.”
  • The Athletic Dad: These men are married with kids and have probably put on 15 pounds. He’s in his 40s and he’s thinking, “Man, I used to look so good in college.” Steinbrech says these men typically go for jawline re-contouring, liposuction, and a small eyelift.

RELATED: The Rise Of Brotox – Men Get Botox Too

ForMen takeaway: Plastic surgery is becoming more commonplace among men and there are more and more plastic surgeons out there specializing in male procedures. There’s no reason to feel embarrassed these days if you’re considering plastic surgery – you are one of many!

Help! I need to go in for a non-invasive facial plastic surgery procedure, NOW. The party season is about to begin, and you are still sporting fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the mouth and on the forehead. The lines on the neck too seem to have become more pronounced. You really need to go in for a non-invasive facial plastic surgery because there is no time for downtime.

What Are the Benefits of a Non-Invasive Facial Plastic Surgery?

A non-invasive facial plastic surgery has no downtime. Procedures like BOTOX® and dermal fillers like Restylane are performed on an outpatient basis and are over within a few minutes. You can go back home the same day. Because no incisions are made, you are generally not given anesthesia. Nor are there scars to conceal after the procedure or allergic reactions to manage. The results are almost instantaneous and last for up to 6 months. This means that if you get the procedure now, you will sport a smooth, wrinkle-free, younger look throughout the next party season.

BOTOX®: A Popular Non-Invasive Male Plastic Surgery in New York

BOTOX® is a popular non-invasive male plastic surgery procedure in New York. In a competitive city like New York, downtime might translate to missed deadlines and lost opportunities to do business. You cannot afford that, but you also want to look good. BOTOX® is the way to look good in a jiffy.

BOTOX® treatments not only reverse signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck but also prevent existing lines from deepening and new lines from forming for up to 6 months. It is a painless procedure during which you receive a series of tiny injections of BOTOX®, which is a form of pure protein that is absolutely safe for your skin. The protein relaxes the muscles on your face and neck, so you lose the wrinkled look.

Restylane: Look Younger for Longer

Restylane is also a popular non-invasive facial surgery procedure for men in New York.

During this procedure, a synthetic gel containing hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance that is also found inside our bodies. The gel carries this acid to the deeper layers of the skin where it integrates with the tissues. The acid attracts and binds to water molecules and helps plump up the tissues and smooth the fine lines and wrinkles. The gel remains inside the skin for many months, so the results are long-lasting. You might experience some redness and swelling at the site where you are injected with the gel. But these symptoms go within a day or two.

And if you are concerned, the gel used in the Restylane treatment is fully bio-compatible and not animal-based.

The party season is about to kick in, and there are sundry things to do—buy gifts for your loved ones, put up decorations, shop for clothes, plan a getaway, and look good. Wouldn’t you just love it if the looking-good part got over effortlessly? Non-invasive facial cosmetic surgery procedures like BOTOX® and Restylane are ideal if you want to look younger within a short period. These non-invasive procedures produce equally impressive results like any other surgical methods to take the years off your face.
