Plastic surgery is a field that is largely dominated by female patients. In 2015, there were about 1.6 million procedures performed, but only about 208,000 of those were performed on men. The majority of plastic surgery procedures can be performed on both men and women, but there are a few procedures that are specific to male patients. These include muscle implants for the arms and chest, high-definition liposculpting, and jaw recontouring. Surgeries like these are designed to give men improved definition and contouring in their face and in their body.
Muscle Implants and Other Options
Men often desire a sculpted and toned body but may have a hard time achieving one. If you are a dad, a busy professional, or have a similar hectic schedule, you may have trouble getting to the gym as much as you would like. If your muscles were damaged through injury or through a genetic condition, you may not be able to get the tone or muscle size you want no matter how much you exercise. The size and shape of the muscles in your arms and chest can be changed using silicone implants.
For your arms, Dr. Steinbrech offers silicone implants for the bicep, tricep, and deltoid muscles. The implants are inserted through small incisions and carefully moved into place. The shape and size of the implant is determined prior to the surgery based on the size of your arm and the amount of space around your muscles. Once the implant is in place, the incisions are closed and bandaged.
A similar implant can also be used to increase the tone and size of the pectoral muscles in your chest. These implants are designed to improve the sculpting in your chest by increasing the size of the pectorals. They are inserted through an incision in your armpit and placed in your muscle tissue to keep the implant from migrating.
Another option for patients who want to achieve these results is to have a muscle graft. This involves taking muscle tissue from another area of the body and moving it to your arms. The effect of the implants can also be increased by using fat transfers to improve the contouring of your arms or chest.
Hi-Definition Liposculpting for Your Body
If your muscles already have good tone but lack real definition, you could benefit from hi-definition liposculpting. This procedure helps improve the appearance of the muscles you already have by using liposuction techniques to remove extra fat deposits located around your body. Hi-definition liposculpting can be used to improve your abdominal muscles, pectoral muscles, lateral muscles, oblique muscles, and other areas around your body. The result is a chiseled and toned appearance that you’ll love to show off.
For this procedure, Dr. Steinbrech uses ultrasonic energy pulses to liquefy your fat cells. The energy is only harmful to the fat and does not affect the muscles, nerves, or soft tissues. After the fat is destroyed, a small hollow tube is used to remove the fat through a little incision. Dr. Steinbrech is strategic with the ultrasonic pulses so that the right amount of fat is liquefied to make your muscles stand out.
Recontouring for Your Jawline
A nonsurgical way for men to enhance their masculinity is to recontour your jawline. Men tend to have stronger features than women, which includes a strong jaw and chin. Sometimes, however, men may have a face that lacks definition because their chin and jaw blend in with the rest of their face. Age can also be a factor in making your face appear less sculpted. Dr. Steinbrech can recontour your face so your bone structure is well defined and more masculine.
Recontouring your jaw doesn’t require surgery because Dr. Steinbrech uses dermal filler injections to change its appearance. There are different filler options to choose from, so Dr. Steinbrech will use his expertise to determine which filler will give you the best results. The injections only take about fifteen to twenty minutes to complete, and they can be administered under local or topical anesthesia. You’ll be able to see the results immediately, though usually more than one session is needed to get the best results.
