Most Commonly Requested Bodybuilder Procedures

Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast enlargement, known as gynecomastia, is a common condition characterized by enlarged breast tissue in men. It affects a significant portion of the male population, with an estimated 40 to 60 percent being affected. This can lead to feelings of embarrassment, low self-esteem, and avoidance of intimacy.

The causes of gynecomastia can include excess localized fat, excess glandular tissue development, or a combination of both. Male breast reduction surgery is a common treatment that can help restore a flatter, firmer appearance to the chest. Before surgery, patients should undergo a medical checkup to determine if there is any underlying medical cause for their gynecomastia.

Dr. Steinbrech, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in LA, has extensive experience in male breast reduction surgery. His patients have benefited from increased self-esteem and confidence after the procedure. The surgery can involve liposuction and/or removal of excess glandular tissue, with an average surgical time of two hours under either local or general anesthesia. Patients will be required to wear a compression garment during recovery to support the new chest contours. Downtime is minimal, with most patients returning to normal activities within a week. Results are typically permanent, barring future excess weight gain.

When considering male breast reduction surgery, it is important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon. While there is a cost associated with the procedure, the benefits in terms of increased comfort and confidence are often well worth it.

Male Plastic Surgery for Bodybuilders in LA 

Hi Def Pec Enhancement

The use of pectoral implants initially aimed to improve the chest muscles’ appearance of bodybuilders who failed to develop them through regular exercise. However, several men can’t achieve their desired chest development on their own, making pectoral implants a suitable solution for them.

Dr. Steinbrech’s Hi-Def Pec Enhancement provides the male chest with fuller and sculpted contours, offering a sense of overall balance to the bodybuilder’s muscular frame.

During surgery, a small incision in the armpit is made under general anesthesia. The implants are kept in place by the pectoralis muscle, which is not hindered by the surgery, allowing patients to continue exercising after healing. Male implants are not filled and feel firm to the touch, unlike those for females.

Unlike regular pectoral implant surgery, Hi-Def Pec Enhancement by Dr. Steinbrech provides a chiseled full look that completes the bodybuilder’s shape.

After the procedure, patients can expect soreness for a few days, and strenuous activities should be avoided for up to six weeks, while normal activities can be resumed after as little as one week.

Hi-Def Liposculpting for Abs

Dr. Steinbrech is a highly skilled plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has expertise in liposuction. This procedure involves the removal of stubborn fat that has not responded to traditional diet and exercise methods to help sculpt the body.

Hi Def Liposculpting, which is offered by Dr. Steinbrech, is a specialized technique that provides a more precise and defined result. This procedure is particularly effective in shaping the upper and lower abdomen, creating a chiseled six-pack and enhancing the pelvic lines for a highly desired Body Builder physique.

The Procedure

The duration of the Hi Def Liposculpting procedure varies depending on the amount of fat to be removed, and may range from one to five hours. Dr. Steinbrech determines whether to use local or general anesthesia based on the size of the area(s) being treated and other factors. The methods used are discussed during the pre-operative consultation.

The Recovery

After undergoing Hi Def Liposculpting, patients may need drainage tubes, compression garments, and antibiotics to help with the healing process. Typically, patients can return to work within a few days, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity for approximately one month.

Gluteal Enhancement with Fat or Implant

If you desire to alter the size or shape of your buttocks, gluteal enhancement might be a suitable option. It enables a plumper buttock appearance, bringing balance to the body profile and compensating for inadequate fat deposits. The process involves injecting body fat or inserting silicone implants to achieve the desired augmentation.

Gluteal enhancement is often sought by body-builders who are unable to develop gluteal muscles that complement their body’s overall proportions. Nonetheless, men of varying shapes and sizes may opt for gluteal implants to enhance their self-assurance or attain a more youthful-looking buttock contour.

Fat Transfer

To enhance the gluteal region, the most widely used method is the fat transfer technique. This process, also known as fat grafting, has become increasingly popular due to its natural and safe outcomes.

The procedure requires the use of a needle to inject fat into the area that requires volume enhancement. This two-step process involves extracting fat from one area via liposuction, and then purifying and injecting it into the targeted region. The harvested fat is purified and cleansed before being injected into the desired area.

Fat transfer is a secure and long-lasting technique that yields natural-looking results.

Gluteal Implants

The selection of buttock implants is tailored to each individual’s desired outcome, with size and shape determined by the plastic surgeon.

Silicone implants offer a natural appearance and texture. The implant is carefully positioned to enhance both the comfort and the aesthetic result, resulting in a more voluminous gluteal region that is permanent unless removed.

General anesthesia is required for the surgical procedure, which typically takes two hours. Dr. Steinbrech, an experienced plastic surgeon, places incisions in the most appropriate locations to create virtually invisible scars.
