Skin Removal Surgery for Men in NYC

Excess skin can happen to anyone, for a variety of reasons. Some people end up having loose, baggy skin because they lost a huge amount of weight. Others get it due to illness. Even more get it as they age, since it’s a natural side-effect of the aging process.

This would be fine, except for the fact that excess skin makes a person look older, can make finding clothes that fit a challenge, and also just doesn’t bode well for a man’s confidence. Dr. Steinbrech’s office has been able to help hundreds of men get rid of the excess skin they have, regardless of why they have it.

Why Get Rid Of Excess Skin?

Excess skin might not pose a health problem per se, but it absolutely can do damage to a man’s confidence. Every man out there wants a taut body that looks youthful, dignified, and masculine. When you have excess skin, that appearance is difficult, if not impossible, to attain.

It’s obvious that excessive skin can cause you to lack confidence and harm your chances in the dating world. But, that’s not all it can do. In more extreme cases, having too much skin can make it difficult to find clothing as well. Excess skin removal surgery can fix those problems permanently.

Excess Skin Removal Surgery For Men

As far as plastic surgery goes, this is a very straightforward procedure in terms of both technique and recovery. Skin removal surgery can be done on almost any part of a man’s body, and is often combined with other procedures.

Excess skin removal surgery is typically done under general anesthesia, but in certain cases, can also be done under local anesthesia. In this procedure, Dr. Steinbrech will cut away excess skin, tighten skin that remains, and close incisions using techniques that hide scarring.

If done alone, recovery times tend to be minimal. Most men will have swelling, bruising, and mild pain. Some may also have to wear compression garments to facilitate healing, but even so, a typical man will be able to return to work within one to two weeks of surgery.

 

Are You A Candidate For Skin Removal Surgery?

If you are a man who’s considering skin removal surgery, Dr. Steinbrech might be able to help you. To get the most out of your plastic surgery experience, you should try to be as close to an ideal candidate as possible. This means that you should:

  • Be able to follow Dr. Steinbrech’s instructions.
  • Have excess skin that you want to have removed.

Loose Skin Surgery for Men in NYC

Whether it happens due to aging or due to rapid weight loss, most men will eventually have loose skin in at least one part of their body. While loose skin does not pose a health risk, it absolutely does look unsightly and contributes to faster aging.

It used to be that having loose skin was a fact of life, but this is no longer the case. Thanks to plastic surgery, it’s possible to keep a taut, youthful, and more visually appealing physique thanks to loose skin surgery.

What Is Loose Skin Surgery?

Loose skin surgery, also known as excess skin removal, is a form of plastic surgery that gets rid of loose skin and tightens the underlying muscle. Depending on where it’s performed, it can be part of a facelift, a neck lift, or a body lift—or it could be done on its own.

The purpose of loose skin surgery is to allow the patient to remove unsightly excess skin, get an overall more youthful appearance, and also smooth out sagging that is caused by weight loss and aging. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in loose skin surgery and has been offering it in the New York City area for years.

What Should I Expect With Loose Skin Surgery?

This kind of surgery is fairly straightforward and involves your surgeon cutting away excess skin, tightening remaining skin, and then offering aftercare. Most people who have loose skin surgery have relatively quick recovery periods with mild bruising and swelling as side effects.

In terms of effects, you should expect a fairly striking difference. People who undergo loose skin surgery often see a drastic difference in their appearance, confidence, as well as their ability to find clothes that fit. Make no mistake about it; it’s a life-changing surgery with incredibly high satisfaction rates.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Loose Skin Surgery?

New York City is filled to the brim with men who could seriously benefit from having loose skin surgery, but not all of them are good candidates. Each candidate is selected by Dr. Steinbrech during a consultation. You might be an ideal candidate for loose skin surgery if…

  • You are in overall good health, work to keep yourself healthy and don’t smoke.
  • You have realistic expectations from plastic surgery.
  • You have excess skin and want to get it removed.
  • Your weight is relatively stable, and you’re not overweight.

Lower Male Body Lift for Men in NYC

Whether we like it or not, our bodies will begin to sag as we grow older. If we’ve lost excessive amounts of weight, it’s also very possible that skin will remain looser than before. Among men, this often comes in the form of a “beer gut” or a small pouch of fat that just won’t go away regardless of what you do at the gym.

Among other men, though, that extra “junk” tends to be centered around the lower abdomen and buttocks. For men who want to have a flat stomach and proportional lower body, Dr. Steinbrech’s lower body lift is an excellent option.

What Is A Lower Male Body Lift?

A lower male body lift is a specialized procedure that removes excess skin, smoothes out folds in the body, and uses liposuction to contour portions of a man’s lower body. This is used to help slenderize a man’s hips, thighs, and buttocks—giving him a more proportional and contoured appearance.

Lower male body lifts are typically done using liposuction and skin removal techniques. This gives a very drastic change in appearance that remains permanent as long as your weight remains stable. They are very involved procedures that often require extra downtime. (Dr. Steinbrech will explain more as you have your consultation.)

Why Get A Lower Male Body Lift?

A lower male body lift offers a slew of excellent benefits. These include being able to find clothes that fit, having better body confidence, and also looking more attractive to potential dates.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Lower Male Body Lift?

New York City men who have undergone weight loss or find themselves with a disproportionate body might want to look into a lower male body lift. However, not all men are good candidates for this procedure.

You would be an ideal candidate if:

  • You are in generally good health and are a non-smoker.
  • Your weight is stable.
  • You have excess skin, fat, or an otherwise disproportionate lower body area and want to get it fixed.
  • You have reasonable expectations as far as results go.
  • You have adequate time for a long recovery period and are willing to follow Dr. Steinbrech’s instructions.

To find out whether you are a good match, you may schedule a consultation with Dr. Steinbrech at his Male Plastic Surgery office in NYC.

A lower male body lift isn’t something that you should take lightly.

After Gastric Bypass Plastic Surgery for Men in NYC

Gastric bypass surgery is growing in popularity and has become a life-saver for millions of people suffering from excess weight. Having gastric bypass surgery is a life-changing event that allows people to lose massive amounts of weight and take their lives back. However, it always has an unintended side effect: excess skin.

As excellent as gastric bypass is, there is only so much it can do. It does wonders for weight loss, can help curb issues with diabetes, and also makes it easier for patient to regain mobility. However, it cannot get rid of the excess skin that’s left behind after major weight loss.

That’s exactly why Dr. Steinbrech’s office offers after-gastric bypass plastic surgery for men in the New York City area.

Why After-Gastric Bypass Plastic Surgery?

Though gastric bypass surgery offers a lot of benefits when it comes to the confidence one gets from weight loss, it’s important to realize that weight loss is only half the battle. Many men who have lost significant amounts of weight still feel self-conscious because rapid weight loss causes excess skin. It’s not uncommon to hear a man who has lost a large amount of weight refuse to take off his shirt or wear shorts because of the excess skin they have.

Another thing people might not realize is that you might not be able to lose weight uniformly. This can cause a disproportional body in some men who have undergone gastric bypass.

Dr. Steinbrech offers surgery that removes extra skin and fat, and gives men the bodies they want to have. If you have been feeling insecure or self-conscious after seeing the effects of weight loss, he can help you.

What Will After-Gastric Bypass Plastic Surgery Involve?

Dr. Steinbrech takes every patient’s case on an individual basis. Most patients who choose to get this service will undergo general anesthesia. While under anesthetic, Dr. Steinbrech will remove excess skin, using small incisions that are kept as hidden as possible. Patients who need liposuction to remove excess fat will also have it performed in the same sitting.

Most patients will be expected to have at least a three to five days of downtime, with most men returning to work within a week. However, it’s important to talk to Dr. Steinbrech to find out your individual procedure to get a better idea of what to expect.

Who Is A Good Candidate For After-Gastric Bypass Plastic Surgery?

Due to the medical nature of gastric bypass surgery, each candidate will need to undergo a checkup to ensure that they are capable of getting plastic surgery. The ideal candidate for this specific form of plastic surgery is a man who:

  • Is in overall good health
  • Successfully underwent gastric bypass surgery
  • Has their weight stabilized
  • Has excess skin that they want to get rid of

Additionally, it’s also important to remember that patients should have reasonable expectations when they choose to undergo plastic surgery.

Bring on the Botched in Male Plastic Surgery

Boobs. They used to be a simple thing — something I have, something all other females have, something I never paid that much attention to, until shows like E!’s “Botched” came out.

If you’ve never watched the show, consider yourself lucky, because once you see some of the stuff on there, it can never be unseen — and I mean ever. While I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about plastic surgeries gone wrong, I never knew how real the problem was, until I saw it with my own eyes on the big screen.

Still, even though these botched boob jobs are without-a-doubt downright alarming to look at, I have to admit — I can’t get enough of ’em. For me, “Botched” is like that horror movie you love to hate; you know that it’s going to give you nightmares, but still, you just can’t look away. Even worse, now, I find myself looking everywhere I go.

You think I’m joking? While some may enjoy birdwatching, boob-watching is more the name of my game these days. And, this summer especially, I’ve been taking it much more seriously than I’d like to admit. Let’s just say that my beach days are no longer filled with simply taking a swim, but more along the lines of staring at all of the tata’s around me. Yes, I know how creepy this sounds.

The thing is, these popular shows like “Botched” and all of the celebrity plastic surgery makeovers that have been busting in the headlines have officially consumed my head; and now more than ever, I’m noticing what’s real, what’s fake, and what’s been completely butchered.

And let me tell ya, bad boob jobs are all around us, and I’ve been catching glimpses of them left and right… and as you can probably guess, it isn’t pretty.

Still, my issue isn’t with plastic surgery. If getting a little work done will give you that extra boost of confidence, by all means — go for it. The thing is, people really need to think twice about who it is they’re going to.

Going under the knife is a big deal, and if you don’t go about it the right way, it can be an even bigger mistake. Choosing a doctor that’s right for you is a huge decision that shouldn’t be rushed. Remember: good things come to those who wait, and even better things come to those who do their research.

Plus, there’s no such thing as a stupid question — in fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons suggests that you ask a whole lot of them:

Although Dr. Douglas Steinbrech is better known as the Godfather of Male Plastic Surgery, he reigns supreme as one of Manhattan’s best plastic surgeons. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, under the American Board of Medical Specialties. Mommy Makeover Manhattan was built on the philosophy to perform minimally invasive techniques on all patients in both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Dr. Steinbrech received top-notch training over an eight-year period at New York University in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. Due to his extensive training and work in the field, the Consumers’ Research Council has dubbed him as one of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons.

What you need to know about BodyBanking® procedure developed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech

What is BodyBanking®?

BodyBanking® is a plastic surgery procedure developed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, which allows the transfer of fat from one part of the body to the other. Using patient’s own body fat, Dr. Steinbrech is able to use fat injections to transfer and remove fat from unwanted parts and inject it in the desired areas of the body to sculpt out the perfect physique.

BodyBanking® Before and After Photo Gallery

RequestACOnsultation-1

One thing is for sure, this is not your grandfather’s liposuction. BodyBanking® is a technique that is dramatically changing the landscape of liposuction! Designed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, leading board certified surgeon specializing solely in male plastic surgery.

BodyBanking® is simple – we take unwanted fat cells from an area of the body that you wish were smaller and re-insert it in an area of the body you want to see enhanced.

How Does BodyBanking® Work?

After proper assessment by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, patients will select a problem area where they are looking for fat to be transferred from. The donor area, as well as the treated area for injection, will both experience application of a local anesthetic. Fluids are then injected into the donor site to begin to enable fat collection.  Once the fat is injected, it is then placed in a syringe and processed for cleaning. Finally the fat is injected into the desired area. The amount of fat injected into the body must be greater than the amount needed, (as fat is absorbed into the body) extra fat cells allow for the right amount of volume for your desired final result.

Advantages of BodyBanking®

  • Method of treatment may be timed on average 1 hour for completion

Slim The Chin: Kybella Treatments in NYC

Kybella Patients in NYC

Many people in NYC are often self-conscious or unsatisfied about the disproportions of their facial structure, or the volume in their face which creates an off-balanced fullness in their overall aesthetic appearance. Weight loss and gain can also contribute to the effects of a face that is not sculpted, looking unshapely. Tightening of this area is need in order to soften this unwanted sagging skin.

Until now patients who wanted to decrease the fat surrounding their chin (medically known as “submental fullness”) would have to undergo liposuction—which, as a surgical procedure. As a substitute treatment, this makes Kybella a huge deal!

The FDA has approved the ultimate cosmetic solution, with no incisions or downtime and recovery. Kybella injections possess the active ingredient, deoxycholic acid dissolving fat and reducing moderate to severe deposits under the chin. Deoxycholic acid is an endogenous bile acid that solubilizes dietary fat in the gut. <em>Kybella</em> contains synthetically derived deoxycholic acid. When the drug is injected into subcutaneous fat tissue, it solubilizes lipids in adipocyte membranes. The resulting cytolysis induces an inflammatory response that clears cell debris.

It is the first drug approved for this indication. The drug does not only target the fat cells, it will also destroy the dermal tissue and skin cells. This allows dermatologists, technician specialists and plastic surgeons the ability to remold the chin designing a chiseled and desired, ideal results for Kybela male candidates in LA.

“Many patients and consumers simply do not want a knife, they want a needle,” explains Male Plastic Surgery expert Dr. Douglas Steinbrech.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is a synthetic version of the deoxycholic acid produced by our bodies to aid in fat absorption. In the body, the acid dissolves fat cells as part of the digestive process. In this application, a certified aesthetic professional injects the synthetic version into submental fat. The injection breaks up fat cells by rupturing their membranes. Fat cells are permanently dissolved and metabolized by the body

However, if a patient has excess fat and skin, it may require a more traditional method of removal such as a Neck Lift. Doctors administering Kybella are advised to screen for patients who have excessive skin in the chin area or “other conditions for which decreasing of submental fat may result in an unfavorable outcome.

Using the facial filler formula Kybella, board- certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steinbrech, and proclaimed ‘Godfather of Male Plastic Surgery’, discusses the newest non-surgical injectable treatment for removing the fat under the chin, more commonly referred to as the ‘double chin’. For many, the double chin ranks high among appearance-related concerns.

All Men Are Not Created Equal Featured in Cosmetic Surgery Times

Contrary to the U.S. Declaration of Independence, not all men are created equal or identify themselves equally.

Dr. SteinbrechThese contradictions have propelled Douglas Steinbrech, M.D., FACS, a  plastic and reconstructive surgeon with locations in Manhattan and Beverly Hills, to create different categories for men to identify with on his website maleplasticsurgerynewyork.com.

“There are many different types of men,” Dr. Steinbrech tellsCosmetic Surgery Times. “Initially, the website was to educate men,” he says. “However, the website has also really increased the volume of men in my practice.”

Case in point, upon opening his practice, in Manhattan, 12 years ago, Dr. Steinbrech’s clientele comprised about 80% women and 20% men. Today, the practice treats roughly 80% men and 20% women.

Three years ago, to help drive male business, Dr. Steinbrech created four categories of males on his website: the model (or in Los Angeles, the actor), the athletic dad, the bodybuilder and the CEO/boardroom executive. Each category also lists several recommended procedures.

The Model

“The most popular procedure for the model is abdominal sculpting,” Dr. Steinbrech says. “Through hidden incisions, I sculpt the abs and achieve a dramatic reduction of fat to the flanks of the love handles.”

The second most popular procedure is a male model “makeover” that creates a chiseled Superhero jawline via fillers or permanent implants. Of the two, “we usually use fillers to inject into the cheekbone and accentuate the jawline and the chin,” Dr. Steinbrech explains. “I always tell my model patients that every guy has a better-looking ‘twin’ working in Hollywood. That counterpart has slightly higher cheekbones, a little wider jawline and a more projecting chin. By tweaking, we want to create this better-looking twin.”

Dr. Steinbrech says “twin” is the ideal word to convey to patients. “We don’t want the patient to look like someone else,” he explains. “We still want the patient to look like himself and appear natural; in other words, the best-looking version.”

The Althletic Dad

The athletic dad also wants sculpted abs, perhaps along with a stronger chest and some submental liposuction or Kybella (Allergan) to erase a double chin.

The “Daddy Do-Over” is Dr. Steinbrech’s version of the Mommy Makeover that includes liposuction and high-def liposcultping of the abs, love handles and neck. “These patients are now focusing on their jobs and families, so they have sort of let go the body they had in their 20s,” Dr. Steinbrech says.

The Bodybuilder

The third male category, the bodybuilder, entails intense sculpting. “I call my set of principals ‘BodyBanking®,’ which is somewhat similar to bodybuilding but with fat,” Dr. Steinbrech notes. “With my patent-pending technique, I suck out the fat from the flanks, the lower chest and the abs, then I reinject that fat into the upper chest for a bigger chest, into the shoulders, the biceps, the triceps, the calves and even into the six-pack.”

According to Dr. Steinbrech, BodyBanking® prevents the fat from returning to the areas where it was removed, adds bulk to the newly transferred-fat areas, and keeps fat from popping up into new areas like intra-abdominal visceral fat.

Silicone implants for the chest, calves, forearms, abdomen, shoulders, biceps and triceps are also popular in this category.

The Executive

The executive type of male is seeking a cleaner neckline and fresher eyes, which often means an upper and lower blepharoplasty and/or a neck lift. “This patient wants to look better in the boardroom and be able to compete with the younger guys,” Dr. Steinbrech says.

In June, the website added a fifth male category: “The Biggest Winner,” a play on the popular TV reality show “The Biggest Loser,” which targets men who have gone through massive weight loss, mostly as a result of gastric bypass, with lingering excess skin that is addressed with any or all of the various body part lifts.

“These patients require circumferential body lifts,” says Dr. Steinbrech, who has developed a swimsuit lift, which conceals incisions lower, beneath the swimsuit line. “Currently, a lot of physicians make the same incision then they would for a woman—high upon the thigh and wrap around as if the man would be wearing a women’s one-piece bathing suit.”

Of the five categories, the male model represents about 30% of Dr. Steinbrech’s patients, followed by the athletic dad (20%), “The Biggest Winner” (20%), the body builder (15%) and the executive (15%).

Dr. Steinbrech encourages other cosmetic practices to understand their own local male patient types, based on practice location. “For example, if you practice in South Carolina, there may not be a lot of actors or models,” he says.

Stratifying patients also helps to create an understanding of realistic aesthetic outcomes and allows people to identify with specific procedures.
