Liposuction Procedures for Men
It is easy to imagine your perfect body. Most picture a trim waistline, broad shoulders and chest, and a flat stomach. As we age, men tend to 'suffer' similar changes to the body as women do, only men 'suffer' in different places. Men typically gain fat in the stomach (abdomen), breasts (commonly referred to as gynecomastia), the hips and also around the face, such as the chin or neck areas. In many cases, diet and exercise just won't fix those hard to reach, 'trouble' areas.
Liposuction can be a very good option if you are in this scenario. Liposuction for men is generally extremely effective, because men keep there skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat below the skin typically are firmer.

The Breast Lift Procedure
Breast Lift (mastopexy) usually takes 1-3.5 hours. There are multiple techniques used for mastopexy, but the most common is an anchor-shaped incision. This follows the natural curve, or shape of the breast. This incision will outline the area of where the breast skin will be removed, and also will identify the new location of your nipple. When the excess skin is removed, the nipple, and areola, are repositioned to the elevated position. The skin is then brought down and reshapes the breast. Your plastic surgeon will usually put the stitches around the areola, and also along the lower crease of the breast.
If you are having a breast lift, with implants (which is a very common procedure) the implant will be placed in a pocket, directly under the breast tissue, or deeper, under the muscle of the chest.
Patients with smaller breasts and nominal sagging, may get a version of the breast lift that requires less incisions. One common procedure is the "doughnut breast lift" or "doughnut mastopexy."

Job Seekers Look to Plastic Surgery for Competetive Edge
Men and women have been searching for a competitive edge in the job market since the beginning of time. Millions of dollars are spent every year on continuing education, job training and career coaching in order to remain competitive, but in these difficult economic times the job market has become increasingly more competitive, due to job losses and cutbacks.
That has prompted some job seekers today to undergo plastic surgery in order to "look younger and 'fresher' for the ever-competitive job market," writes Sue Zeidler of Reuters. The belief is that those who look younger and have more vitality to their face will be more competitive in the cut-throat job market today.
"Before the economy turned down, people would come in because they wanted to have more fun and enjoyment out of life," comments Payman Simoni, a Los Angeles based plastic surgeon. "But now plastic surgery has become a necessity for some. People cannot only rely on their skills in this market. They want to look refreshed and youthful so they can compete for jobs," he said.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently surveyed almost 800 women on whether they would consider plastic surgery for purely career reasons. It turns out that 13 % of women surveyed between the ages of 18 and 64 had considered plastic surgery to get a competitive edge in the job market. In fact, 3 % of women admitted that they had already undergone cosmetic surgery for the selfsame reason. Confidence and competition are the two main reasons for their consideration of plastic surgery.
To learn more about this topic, read the full Reuters article.
My Plastic Surgeon USA is committed to featuring only the best, most experienced, board certified plastic surgeons. If you're considering elective cosmetic surgery use our Surgeon Locator to find a plastic surgeon in your area and contact them directly with your questions.

Breast Enhancement Pills Not Effective
It's easy to be lured in by claims of natural breast enhancement, whether through pills or specific exercise programs. Who wouldn't want to avoid going under the knife and pay thousands of dollars to get the breasts you always wanted?
It would be so easy to pop a few pills and do a few exercise routines and in weeks you sprout beautiful new breasts.
But the truth is, it's easy for the pill manufacturers to make these claims because when it comes to herbal, homeopathic supplements, you don't need to have the FDA back it up. These companies don't need to make FDA approved data backed claims, they can say they do research and studies and throw out all the patient testimonials they want, all without the FDA's approval.
Remember the FDA takes their work very seriously, and their claims aren't to be taken lightly and without that kind of back up, who knows what the truth is.
But there is one truth. That we are dictated naturally by our genes. And if you're genes are getting you down, and you want that body you've always wanted, visit My Plastic Surgeon USA to find the right Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for you. Start your path to a new, beautiful you.
