Hi-Def Liposculpting of the ABS

bodybuilder-mediumDr Steinbrech is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon that specializes in liposuction. Liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that has not responded to diet and exercise.

How does Hi Def Liposculpting differ? Hi Def Liposculpting by Dr. Steinbrech offers a more targeted and defined result. When used on the upper and lower abdomen, Hi Def Liposculpting chisels out the perfect six-pack and pelvic lines for the ultimate Body Builder phsyique.

The Procedure

The Hi Def Liposculpting procedure may last from one to five hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed. Dr. Steinbrech will use either local or general anesthesia depending on the size of the area(s) being treated as well as several other factors. Methods are discussed during your pre-operative consultation.

The Recovery

Post-Hi Def Liposculpting, drainage tubes, compression garments and antibiotics may be needed to facilitate the healing process. Many patients return to work within a few days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month.

Gynecomastia

bodybuilder-gynoGynecomastia is the condition of enlarged male breast tissue, commonly treated with male breast reduction surgery. Gynecomastia is a condition far more prevalent than many realize, as it affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of the male population. Oversized breasts in men can cause embarrassment, emotional distress, low self-esteem, as well as avoidance of intimacy.

Gynecomastia is regarded as:

  • Excess localized fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development
  • A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
  • The aforementioned may be present in one of or both breasts

Male breast reduction surgery can help by restoring a flatter, firmer appearance to the male chest. Prior to surgery, patients should be checked to see if there is any medical cause of their Gynecomastia.

Male breast enlargement affects males of all ages. Causes of Gynecomastia include side effects of certain drugs, disease, hereditary conditions, and/or hormonal changes.

Gotham Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Steinbrech, has extensive experience in male breast reduction surgery, giving thousands of men the self-esteem they desperately seek. No longer do Dr. Steinbrech’s patients have to hide under lose clothing or feel embarrassed by their once-problem area.

Male breast reduction surgery can be achieved by liposuction and/or by removing excess glandular tissue. The surgical time is on average two hours and requires local or general anesthesia. You will be required to wear a special compression garment for a period of time during recovery to help support the new contours of your chest. Downtime is minimal (roughly one week) and results are permanent, unless future access weight gain causes excess fat in the breast area.

When considering male breast reduction surgery it is important to look to a board certified plastic surgeon. Cost of surgery is worth the comfort and trust you will obtain with the right surgeon for you.

Hi Def Pec Enhancement

pecs-male-pagePectoral implants began as a way to enhance the figure of body builders who could not develop their chest muscles with regular exercise-yet wanted a muscular and full look.  Many men are unable to achieve the chest development they desire on their own. Pectoral implants are the solution for thousands of men seeking to look their best.

Hi Def Pec Enhancement by Dr. Steinbrech offers sculpted and fuller looking contour to the male chest-offering overall balance to the muscular body of a body builder.

Surgery requires general anesthesia and involves a small incision in the armpit. The implants are  kept in place by the pectoralis muscle. The muscle function itself is not hindered, allowing patients the ability to continue exercise after healing. Unlike the implants for females, male implants are not filled and feel firm to the touch.

Hi Def Pec Enhancement differs from a regular pectoral implant surgery as Dr. Steinbrech artfully gives a chiseled full look to complete the shape of the finest body builders.

Post Hi Def Pec Enhancement patients can expect soreness for a few days post surgery. Full activity (such as strenuous exercise) is restricted for up to six weeks, however normal activity can be resumed after as little time as 1 week.

Gluteal Enhancement with Fat or Implant

bodybuilder-glutealIf you are looking to enlarge or re-shape your buttocks, gluteal enhancement may be right for you. A gluteal enhancement allows for a fuller buttocks; offering a more balanced profile by making up for a deficit of fat deposit. Augmentation can be achieved with injections of the patient’s own body fat or with silicone implants.

Commonly, body-builders seek gluteal enhancement when they are unable to naturally develop gluteal muscles that balance with the proportions of the rest of their body. However, many men of all shapes and sizes seek gluteal implants for a boost in self-confidence and/or a more youthful looking buttocks.

Fat Transfer

The most common method of gluteal enhancement is fat transfer. Fat injection or fat grafting has grown rapidly in popularity as a safe and effective filler offering natural results.

Fat transfers require needle injections into the area requiring a volume enhancement. This procedure is a two part process; first requiring the liposuction of one area to collect the fat that is secondly transferred as an injection to the desired region. Fat transfer involves harvesting the fat from one area of the body to be washed and purified before being injected to the desired area.

The procedure is safe, long-lasting and offers natural looking results.

Gluteal Implants

Buttock implants are unique in size and shape to be custom chosen by your plastic surgeon to best achieve your desired result.

Silicone implants provide the right natural result and feel. The silicone implant is placed in the ideal position for comfort and aesthetic outcome, providing a fuller gluteal region that is permanent unless removed.

The surgical procedure requires general anesthesia and the time in surgery is two hours. Experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Steinbrech, places the incisions in the best possible areas of fold for virtually invisible marks.

The Recovery Process

After gluteal implants or gluteal fat injection you can expect to avoid sitting down or lying on your back for up to three weeks post procedure. Special compression garments are given to reduce swelling. Swelling post procedure is normal as is some bruising or discomfort. However, patients typically return to work two-three weeks after gluteal augmentation and swelling will cease completely after six weeks.
