It’s Raining Men: How Too Many Men Have Changed the Way Society Sees Masculinity

In China, Korea, and India, a strange thing is starting to happen. It’s something that has never been witnessed in human history before. For the first time in history, men outnumber women in some of the most populous countries in Asia. It’s not a slight difference, either.

The difference is most noticeable in countries where family planning policies and social expectations often would have parents able to raise only one child—most often a male to carry on the family name. Due to the heavy preference families had for men over women, there are now a total of over 70 million more men than there are women.

The Struggles of Men in a Male World

If you were to listen to some of the rants men have about ladies, you’d never guess that an overabundance of men would be an issue. However, demographers are starting to panic because of the widespread changes and impacts of having such a dire lack of women.

Men are now facing unprecedented competition for dates, white collar jobs, and even entertainment-based jobs. With the higher competition for jobs and potential spouses, men are also starting to get judged on elements that they never used to be critiqued on.

Things such as looks and fashion sense, for example, are becoming increasingly important for men in both the dating world and work world. Women are more interested in finding a sexually attractive mate than ever before—and men who want to court women often will have to do something to set themselves apart from the rest of the singletons out there.

How Bad Can Rejection Be?

The consequences of not being able to compete in the new world can be pretty dire. In many cases, men who are unable to find a spouse are seen as less masculine, or worse, defective. Many older parents are now stuck housing single men who can’t get a spouse or a job.

In many cases, parents who were once thrilled to have sons are now beginning to regret it. Some are even beginning to panic, or encourage their sons to marry younger than ever before. In China, it’s even become customary for men to start building houses in a last-ditch attempt to get a wife. Sadly, it’s not always successful…but something else has been.

Plastic Surgery? For Men?!

Only 20 years ago, you never would have heard of men who would be interested in plastic surgery. However, times have definitely changed. As women have become increasingly focused on sexual attraction, men throughout the world have started to pay more attention to their looks before.

In China, Japan, and Korea, the male plastic surgery market is absolutely booming. Men who have undergone surgery in these countries definitely don’t regret it, either. In many cases, one small nip and tuck was all they needed to find love—or even a better job.

The trend has also begun to spread to the United States as well. Dr. Steinbrech, one of the top male plastic surgeons in New York City, recently had to expand his business into multiple branches due to the uptick in demand. The statistics alone show that the demand is skyrocketing, with dermal fillers, face lifts, and liposuction being some of the most commonly requested procedures.

Though men don’t outnumber women in the United States, Dr. Steinbrech and other male plastic surgeons have noticed that the rationale behind going under the knife remains the same. Many, if not most, male plastic surgery clients in the States choose to undergo cosmetic procedures to compete in the world of Tinder, or to look more respectable in their careers.

Not As Crazy As You Think

It may seem insane for a regular man to go to such lengths, but if you think about it, the new uptick in plastic surgery makes a lot of sense. Today’s world is one where competition has never been higher—and that holds true for all things. Men really do have to struggle to find love, a great career, and have status.

Our society is one where people will focus on your first impression. This means that, for both men and women, looks matter more than ever before. The guys who choose to undergo plastic surgery are not being vain or foolish; they are adapting to a hyper competitive world by investing in the best asset they have—themselves.  Dr. Steinbrech launched his Male Plastic Surgery  New York website in 2012 as demand sky rocketed due to pent up demand.  He later expanded with a Male Aesthetic Website for his Beverly Hills office and is now bi-coastal servicing the needs for men on both coasts.  As much as 40% of Dr. Steinbrech’s patients are from overseas (many of which who fly in from Asia).  Hence, the demand for Male Plastic Surgery is worldwide and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

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.

Bicep Implants: Carve Out a Superhero Look This October

Bicep implants give you more than well-sculpted and brawny upper arms. A bicep implant surgery also gives you a well-proportioned muscular look that is so essential when you want to look like a superhero.

What is a Bicep Implants Surgery?

During a bicep implant surgery, the surgeon makes an incision in the underarm area to create a groove for the implants. A skillful surgeon can position these implants exactly within the folds of the soft tissues, so they remain secure. The scar tissues that develop during the healing process, additionally, help secure the implants and prevent them moving around or getting dislodged when you move your arms.

Your surgeon will choose the shape and size of the bicep implant, so your muscular arms look proportionate to the rest of your body. The surgery is a minimally invasive procedure and is complete in just a few hours. It is usually performed on an outpatient basis and you can return home the same day.

The results of bicep implant surgery are visible immediately after the process. You will notice an improvement in the contours and mass of your upper arms. Take a look at a few bicep implants before-and-after photographs; you will be impressed.

Bicep Implant Recovery

Like any other surgical procedure, bicep implants also can produce side effects like bruising, swelling, and pain. The bruising and the swelling will go away on their own within a few weeks after the surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe oral medicines to help you cope with the pain.

During the bicep implant recovery period, you cannot raise your arms in the first two days after the surgery. After that you can resume your normal daily activities. However, you cannot lift heavy weights or do strenuous gym workouts till you are completely healed, which may take 2-3 weeks.

The Benefits of Bicep Implant

Bicep implant surgery benefits all those men who have been trying unsuccessfully to bulk up their arms for many months. How much muscle mass you develop depends to some extent on your genes. So not all men can hope to have muscular and well-defined arms just by working out. Bicep implants help these men beef up their torsos to balance out the rest of their bodies.

Sometime hand or arm injuries can limit the amount of weight you can lift. Bicep implants help you add muscle mass without working out like a maniac.

Bicep implant surgery is a quick and hassle-free way to add bulk and definition to your upper arms. It is a cost-effective procedure as well because you don’t have to spend additional hours at the gym. What is more, you can devote the time you save by not working out extra, to money-making projects. Bicep implants in New York is a popular plastic surgery amongst men who want to look good, feel good, and do good without sweating out.

October is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, a time to spare a thought for all those brave kids who are bravely battling the pains in their disease-ravaged bodies. Bicep implants give you the macho look you desired; now it is time to show your sensitive, caring persona. Don a superhero costume that shows off your ripped, shredded body, take part in the various awareness drives organized by your community, and give joy and hope to the kids to motivate them to fight on.

Featured on The Insider List: Top Plastic Procedures- NY

Hand Lifts? Gladiator Abs? & Loub Jobs….? Oh My! More and more people are going beyond what most individuals are familiar with– breast enhancements, tummy tucks, face lifts, etc. – in order to improve their physical appearance.

When it comes to the latest innovative treatments available on the market, requests and consultations continue to increase among NYC’s top board-certified surgeons.  These mildly invasive to non-invasive techniques are revolutionizing an already popular industry for youthifying, beautifying, and overall enhancing one’s aesthetic appeal- face and body.

The variety of procedures that exist today is mindboggling to the average person. However, guilty pleasures like the E! Networks hit reality show “Botched” have been bringing some epic revelations in plastic surgery to the forefront of the media and highlighting the lengths that drive people to seek out the ever-evolving cosmetic surgeries. Whether it is for vanity’s sake, revisional or medical/functional purposes, these solutions result in billions of dollars being spent every year as young millennials to maturing adults invest in their looks.  Everyone is on a constant search and quest to find the fountain of youth- attempting to secure and even redefine ageless efforts.

From shortening your forehead to shrinking your cankles, there’s a surgical and/or non-surgical method of operation for just about everything. Your every superficial concern from head to toe- literally- can be evaluated and changed for your desired outcome.

-And it’s not just women undergoing such procedures. An increasing number of men are hopping on this transformative ride as well. Here’s an infographic highlighting the Top 5 Procedures You Probably Didn’t Know Existed:

Infographic Miller-Steinbrech

#5 Cinderella Surgery.

Every leading lady wants her fairy tale ending.

-But what happens when the shoe doesn’t fit? Or the glass slipper is causing you ongoing pain? After all, fashion and beauty equal pain. More women have been experiencing a condition referred to as “stiletto metatarsalgia”. “The Loub Job®” Injection is a new, cutting edge treatment created by Dr. Suzanne Levine to alleviate the symptoms of this condition upon request.

Women are now taking radical steps to resolve the ongoing pain that comes from wearing their favorite pair of high-end heels! With celebrities driving the sales for fashionable dream shoes, it is no wonder women are finally seeking help with the latest injectables. Fillers are no longer just for your face! Princesses and fashionistas rejoice!

#4 Hand Lift.

If your “bae” is going to #PutARingOnIt, two things need to happen in order to make the announcement on social media- a fresh manicure and a hand-lift! The “engagement ring selfie” is stirring up major insecurities for ladies declaring their love. Since hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging, fillers can instantly smooth out wrinkles and plump the skin creating a desired aesthetic for your blissful photo.

# 3 Gladiator Abs.

A technique commonly referred to as abdominal etching prior to Dr. Douglas Steinbrech perfecting the procedure with his Gladiator Abs™ to surgically enhance appearance and improve the definition of abdominal muscles. This cutting-edge procedure removes unwanted fat and sculpts your abs definition to help you get the ripped abs you’ve always wanted.

Many men believe, as per a fictional gladiator once proclaimed, “What we do in this life echoes in eternity!” (Unless a top board-certified surgeon has anything to do with it!)

#2 Liquid FaceLift.

The Liquid Facelift can provide an excellent alternative to a traditional surgical facelift for individuals seeking more immediate improvement with no downtime and minimal risk or those looking to avoid surgery altogether. It is ideal for younger individuals who are not yet ready for or in need of surgical correction but would still like to improve early signs of facial aging and volume loss. Test drive the car, before you take it off the lot. Understandable.

Enter…

#1 Cankle Liposuction.

Since the ankle area is so delicate and tough, the technique is not widely performed and could be quite painful. However, this isn’t stopping people from having major insecurity around the condition best known as cankles.

No Sweat 6-Pack This Summer in NYC

Six-Pack Abs are a sculpted liposuction technique designed for achieving aesthetic perfection!

male-abs-beach

Advantages of 6-Pack Sculpting Surgery

  • Have the more contoured, sleek-cut abdominal six-pack you’ve always desired.
  • Relatively fast recovery period.
  • Gain self-confidence and enhance your self-esteem.

Well, Memorial Day Weekend came and went just as anticipated. Now, officially for the next three months, all eyes are on you and your shirtless physique as you bask in the glory of the sun and the sands. Of course, the time of year which includes everyone staring at your bare stomach happens to also be the season of BBQ’s and other social celebrations. You’re probably eating and drinking more than usual and seemingly more naked. Go figure!

Many men typically find it difficult to define their mid-section into a 6-pack as it is, regardless of rigorous workouts and healthy eating habits. However, a summer-fun lifestyle goes hand in hand with looking and feeling your absolute best- with a side of confidence to go with it of course.

How are all of these men getting the rippled abs that everyone envies on the beach?

The answer is simple: Hi-Def 6-Pack Liposcultping

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 ultimate six-pack and pelvic lines for the ideal, toned physique.

Hi-Def Liposculpting for men in NYC is a less invasive alternative to traditional liposculpture treatments focused on safely and effectively eliminating fatty deposits that are often the result of genetics and have proven resistant to traditional weight loss and dieting efforts. Liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat that simple doesn’t responded properly to those attempts. Genetics sometimes work against us, and a secret weapon is needed! No matter how disciplined you may be with your gym regimen, some men find themselves at a stand-still that no amount of sit-ups, crunches, or even diet can help them to achieve their optimal goals and progress.

The Procedure

The Hi-Def Liposculpting procedure may last from one to five hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed for male patients in NYC. 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, compression garments and antibiotics may be needed to facilitate the healing process.
  • Many male NYC patients return to work within a few days.
  • Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month.

Abdominal Etching Vs Ab Implants

Abdominal implants may be an alternative to the popular procedure known as abdominal etching, but it is important to understand the difference in procedure and results. Etching is a form of liposuction that gives you a flat, tight stomach with greater muscle definition. The surgeon removes excess fat, and then creates grooves in remaining fat layers to simulate the appearance of toned abs. Abdominal implants, however, are actual implants designed to mimic the look of the six-pack, and they can provide an even more defined appearance than abdominal etching. Most men will find the etching to provide the more desirable aesthetic and solution for sculpted abs with a more natural looking mass appeal.

Redefine Dadbods In NYC

www.flickeringmyth.com

Little Ms. College Sophomore, Mackenzie Pearson did not realize exactly what she was in for when she published her online article in The Odyssey back in March. Not only was it the debut of the trending coined phrase,#Dadbod, but it has been subject to heavy criticism and backlash, especially from those women who rock the fierce “Mom bod”.

By definition, the original feature defines the term dad bod as, “a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.’ It’s not an overweight guy, but it isn’t one with washboard abs, either.”

The terms “dad bod” and “mom bod” may just be a fad and the topic of the moment, but the implications are worth holding on to. Bodies are not perfect by nature, and that is okay- but we must let go of the insanity behind one pop-culture catch phrase as the beacon of beauty. Confidence is the key. Do not allow this new wave to take over how you feel about yourself, as a woman or as a mother. Reclaim yourself in any way you feel necessary.

Male Plastic Surgery Results Come Out In NYC

As seen on Buzzfeed

enhance

Cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures have always been controversial issues long before it became considered “proper maintenance” that came about with the aging process. Now, the dramatic increase in male plastic surgery trends is really bringing attention back to the gay community, but not in the way that you would think. Plastic surgery has predominately been a woman or gay man’s choice or prophecy. However, increasingly more men are actively seeking to improve their facial and body aesthetic with cosmetic procedures and other non-invasive treatments.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Reports Americans Spent More Than 12 Billion in 2014; Procedures for Men Up 43% Over a Five Year Period. Since ASAPS began collecting statistical data in 1997, there has been a 273% increase in the number of procedures performed on men. Although there are no real credible statistics on the sexual orientation of plastic surgery patients, most surgeons recognize the demographic and the specific, desired appearance they are looking to achieve.

With newly famed individuals and extreme cases like Justin Jedlica who have invested in more than 100 cosmetic surgeries to look like a “Real-Life Ken Doll”, and hit television series like E!’s, Botched, the country is becoming male plastic surgery obsessed and the figures that seem to be in the spotlight are out of the closet males. To the general public and social commoners, they associate this trend and rapid growth with homosexuality. Hence, as we all know, “a person is smart, people are dumb.”

New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech is the innovator behind the latest procedure contributing to the growing trend in male plastic surgery.

Just kidding, but no really, men are now taking the drastic measures just as often as women have been known to do in order to alter their appearance and sculpt their ideal body.

Men seemingly shy away from that “Bruce Jenner” botched, soft, feminine look and even use him as a point of reference of how they do not want to look.
