Brad Pitt is a classic example of rugged good looks. His strong jawline, chiseled nose, and piercing blue eyes have made him one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood for decades.


Why are these men’s faces so desirable?

There are a few key reasons. First, their features are symmetrical. This means that the two sides of their faces are very similar in appearance. This is considered to be attractive because it is a sign of good health and strong genes.

Second, their skin is clear. This is important because clear skin is associated with youth and health. It is also a sign that the person takes care of themselves.

Third, their hair is thick and full. This is another sign of good health and strong genes. It is also considered to be attractive because it makes the person look more youthful.

Finally, all of these men have well-defined facial features. This means that their jawlines, cheekbones, and noses are all well-defined. This is considered to be attractive because it gives the face a masculine and chiseled look.

Of course, beauty is subjective, and what one person finds attractive another person may not. But there is no denying that these 10 men are all very handsome, and it is clear why they are so popular among plastic surgery patients.

What Is Scrotox?

Scrotox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves injecting botulinum toxin type A (Botox) into the scrotum. Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks nerve signals to the muscles, causing them to relax. When injected into the scrotum, Botox can reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, and make the scrotum appear larger.

Why do people get Scrotox?

People get Scrotox for a variety of reasons. Some people want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and veins on their scrotum. Others want to make their scrotum appear larger or more defined. Scrotox can also be used to treat excessive sweating in the genital area.

How does Scrotox work?

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and the skin to smooth out. When injected into the scrotum, Botox can reduce wrinkles, smooth the skin, and make the scrotum appear larger.

What are the benefits of Scrotox?

The benefits of Scrotox include:

  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and veins
  • Smoother skin
  • Larger and more defined scrotum

Who is a good candidate for Scrotox?

Scrotox is a good candidate for men who are in good overall health and who are looking to improve the appearance of their scrotum. Scrotox is not right for everyone, and it is important to talk to a doctor to see if it is the right choice for you.

How much does Scrotox cost?

The cost of Scrotox varies depending on the location of the doctor, the number of injections required, and the experience of the doctor. In general, Scrotox costs between $500 and $1,500 per treatment.

How long does Scrotox last?

The results of Scrotox typically last for 3 to 4 months. After that, the muscles will start to contract again and the wrinkles will begin to reappear. Scrotox can be repeated as needed to maintain the desired results.

Is Scrotox safe?

Scrotox is generally safe when performed by a qualified doctor. However, there are some potential risks, such as bruising, swelling, redness, pain, numbness, infection, and scrotal asymmetry. It is important to talk to a doctor about the risks and benefits of Scrotox before deciding if it is right for you.

What are the alternatives to Scrotox?

There are a few alternatives to Scrotox, including:

  • Scrotal fillers
  • Scrotal surgery
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Chemical peels

It is important to talk to a doctor about the best option for you based on your individual needs and goals. Scrotox is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can be used to improve the appearance of the scrotum. It is important to talk to a doctor to see if Scrotox is right for you and to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure.

Dr. Steinbrech Reveals Dramatic Transformation After Performing BodyBanking® and Gynecomastia Procedures

Some men dream about becoming bodybuilders. In the case of this 54-year-old patient from Miami, his career as a former competitor left him needing an extra bit of help when it came to sculpting his physique. So, he sought out the expertise of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steinbrech of Male Plastic Surgery in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

During his consultation, Dr. Steinbrech immediately identified that the male patient presented excess visceral fat, in addition to gynecomastia. Enlarged breasts, also known as gynecomastia, are a common problem amongst bodybuilders who have developed an abundance of fat and glandular tissue in one or both breasts. Male breast reduction surgery can help by reconstructing a flatter, firmer look to the male chest.

In addition to treating the patient’s gynecomastia, Dr. Steinbrech also performed his patented BodyBanking® procedure. Using a patient’s own body fat, Dr. Steinbrech is able to transfer and remove fat from unwanted areas and inject it into the desired parts of the body. In this example, BodyBanking® was used to sculpt the patient’s abdomen into a chiseled six-pack. In addition, bad fat from the flanks was also used to add volume to the upper chest and shoulders. 

Check out the complete transformation below:

Poland Syndrome: Everything You Need To Know

What Is Poland Syndrome?

Poland Syndrome is a type of disorder that causes people to be born with missing or underdeveloped muscles on one side of the body. This disorder usually impacts areas such as the chest, shoulder, arm, hand. People with this disorder tend to have a part of their pectoralis major, an important chest muscle, missing. In most cases, this missing muscle goes from the upper arm to the breastbone which is why the arm and shoulders are affected as well. This missing muscle can further lead to shorter ribs, breast abnormalities, and underdeveloped chest wall muscles.

Male Pec Fat Transfer with BodyBanking

Another part of the body that Poland syndrome can impact would be the hands. The hand on the affected side of the body can appear to be webbed, have shorter fingers, and even have fingers that are fused together. Depending on the severity of the condition, some people can have difficulty using their affected hand. The main visual impact of this disorder would be one side of the body appearing shorter than the other creating a noticeable asymmetry. While these visual differences become more noticeable when an individual with this disorder hits puberty, some have such symptoms being present since birth.

Who Discovered Poland Syndrome?

Dr. Alfred Poland, a medical student, was dissecting a cadaver when he noticed that the body had some unexplainable deformities. After sketching and writing a report on his findings, Dr. Poland came to conclude that this unusual abnormality in the body was caused by the underdevelopment of the chest wall and the pectoralis major muscle. Since Poland discovered this disorder in 1841, it was named after him and is now known as Poland Syndrome.

Causes Of Poland Syndrome

 While the direct causes of this syndrome are unknown, most researchers have linked it with disruption of blood flow that occurs during the development phase of a fetus before birth. Researchers also believe that this disruption tends to occur during the sixth week of the development of an embryo. Since the blood vessels that enable the chest wall and chest muscles to form are impacted by this disruption, the visual and physical symptoms appear. Additionally, some rare cases of Poland Syndrome have also been linked to genetic changes being passed down from families, however, no related gene of this sort has ever been identified.

Signs And Symptoms Of Poland Syndrome

Some common symptoms of this disorder include:

  • The absence of some of the chest muscles

  • The end of the main chest muscle that attaches to the breast bone being missing

  • The breast and nipple being underdeveloped or missing

  • Very short or webbed fingers

  • Armpit hair being missing

  • The skin in the affected areas to be underdeveloped and having a thin subcutaneous fat layer

  • The upper rib cage being underdeveloped or missing

  • Rare issues with the kidney and spine

How Do You Treat Poland Syndrome?

Since in most cases, the effects of this syndrome tend to be visual rather than physical, reconstruction surgeries tend to be a common treatment for this syndrome. Still, getting surgical treatments will not only improve an individual’s visual appearance, but they will also improve body functionality.  Plastic surgery that involves rebuilding the chest wall and placing the ribs in their right places also tends to be a standard form of treatment. Most often, men can treat Poland Syndrome with a silicone pectoral implant to increase volume in the chest.

Male Pectoral Implants Before and After

For females, breast reconstruction surgeries can also be performed since it is one of the main affected areas. There are various different surgical options that are available and can be used to treat Poland syndrome, however, these surgical options differ from person to person depending on the severity of their condition and the areas of their body that are impacted.

BodyBanking and Fat Transfer

One specific type of surgical treatment that can be used for Poland Syndrome would be BodyBanking. BodyBanking is a form of plastic surgery that has been developed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech. It basically involves transferring fat from one part of the body to another part of the body that needs more of it. In this case, the targeted area would most likely be the chest region as the muscles there are most impacted by the syndrome.

Male Poland Syndrome Before and After

Transferring more fat in the chest areas that are missing or underdeveloped due to this disorder allows for the body to appear more proportionate and symmetrical. Since body fat is a natural filler without any serious side effects, BodyBanking can be one of the most convenient forms of surgery one can get in order to treat Poland syndrome.

Male Plastic Surgery treats patients at all three locations in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

What Are the Side Effects of Botox Injections?

Easily the most common cosmetic procedure carried out in the United States, Botox is used to smooth the lines which, over time, develop in the face. A minimally invasive procedure, Botox is quick, safe, and effective when administered by a medical professional, and can leave your face looking younger by eliminating the fine lines and wrinkles which develop over time, while also preventing new ones from appearing.

In addition to its cosmetic use, Botox may also be used to treat a variety of medical conditions, from migraines to facial spasming. Although the procedure is not considered risky and the overall risk is minimal, like all medical and cosmetic procedures, Botox does not come without possible side effects. It is important to become familiar with and consider them before electing to receive treatment

It is important to note that the risk of side effects is increased when BOTOX injections are delivered by those inexperienced in the practice. When using experts such as Dr. Steinbrech, the following risks are substantially diminished and the procedure is considered extremely safe. Most reactions and side effects occur around the injection site. Most often, the procedure can cause mild pain, swelling, bruising and headaches. These symptoms tend to range from mild to moderate in severity, but they are also temporary, and generally fade and disappear within a few days.

Other, less common side effects of Botox include dry mouth, nausea, blurred vision and muscle weakness. Allergic reactions to Botox are rare, but it is important to know their signs and symptoms in the event that they occur; possible signs of an allergic reaction include swelling of the tongue, throat or mouth, severe dizziness, trouble breathing, or the development of a rash. It is important to always talk to your doctor before undergoing any medical treatment.

Fortunately, many people that receive treatment do not experience serious side effects, and among those who experience any at all, they tend to resolve within days to weeks. When Botox is performed by highly trained professionals, it results in a healthy, natural, and younger look for male patients, and the risk of bruising is greatly reduced.

As a member of the International Society of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Steinbrech is a well-trained, highly experienced specialist in performing BOTOX injections. Not only does his expertise reduce the possibility and severity of bruising, headaches and other side effects, but it also ensures that the procedure will be successful in providing patients with a smoother, more youthful-looking face. Inexperienced practitioners, in addition to increasing the risk of negative side effects for patients, can leave your face looking unnatural, frozen, or overfilled. Fortunately, Dr. Steinbrech’s years of experience and record of patient satisfaction ensures that patients are left with a natural, fresh look with negligible negative side effects.

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Safe?

Gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, can happen to men of all ages. It affects 40 to 60 percent of the male population, which makes it quite common. The causes can be linked to hormone imbalance, genetics, disease or the side effects of certain medications. Gynecomastia can occur on one side of the chest, or sometimes both, and the breasts grow larger or more uneven. Oftentimes, men who suffer from gynecomastia experience feelings such as embarrassment, emotional distress or avoidance of intimacy.

There is treatment available, however, for men who are looking for a flatter and firmer appearance in their chest. Specially trained plastic surgeons such as Dr. Douglas Steinbrech have the experience and extensive knowledge when it comes to performing male breast reduction surgery. But, how safe is gynecomastia surgery really?

Is Gynecomastia Surgery Safe

How do I know if I have gynecomastia?

Oftentimes, gynecomastia can be confused with the presence of fatty tissue in overweight men. The telltale signs of gynecomastia include pain, tenderness or swelling in the breasts that may increase over time. If a patient is going off of touch, gynecomastia can feel like a small, firm lump under the nipple area of either one or both breasts. By appearance, the swollen tissue will resemble female breasts or “man boobs.” To rule out other conditions such as breast cancer, the patient should be evaluated through a mammogram, MRI or further testing suggested by a doctor.

What to expect with gynecomastia surgery:

If a male patient has complaints regarding lumps in his breast or excess fat in the chest area, liposuction is the best option for achieving male breast reduction. Through liposuction, the surgeon is able to remove excess glandular tissue through a minor incision leaving minimal scarring behind. The whole procedure takes two hours and can be performed while a patient is under general anesthesia. However, liposuction for gynecomastia can also be performed under local anesthesia.

What to know before:

Pre-surgery, it is advised that patients stop all medications that could increase the risk of bleeding. It’s also recommended that a patient stops smoking and increases their nutrition for faster healing. A good candidate for gynecomastia should:

  • Have a condition that cannot be corrected through alternative medical treatments
  • Be of relatively normal weight
  • Have no life-threatening illness or underlying medical conditions
  • Be a non-smoker and non-drug user
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations for improving his appearance
  • Be of a certain age where their breasts are fully developed
  • Are uncomfortable with their breasts being too large

What is the recovery process like?

Post-surgery, expect that drains will be placed to reduce the chance of fluid collection but will later be removed during a post-operative visit. Patients will also be asked to wear a special compression garment to help support the new chest contours. The overall downtime for gynecomastia surgery is minimal, roughly one week, and the results of the surgery are permanent considering there’s no future weight gain. (Click for a look at our process.)

Is gynecomastia surgery safe?

Male breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia is considered to be an incredibly safe procedure. Most male patients experience good outcomes in addition to a smooth recovery and surgery. Much of this depends on your surgeon and how experienced they are with performing a male breast reduction.

There are possible risks and complications associated with gynecomastia surgery in men. These complications include bruising, bleeding, fluid collections, contour irregularities, loss of nipple skin, visible scarring, numbness of the nipples, inverted nipples, loose breast skin and asymmetries. These variables can largely be controlled through surgical technique during the procedure, as well as during pre and postoperative care.

Which Non-Surgical Facelift is the Best?

A facelift, also known as a Rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves signs of visible aging found in the face and neck. But did you know there are non-surgical facelift options available? Fillers are an easy, non-invasive way to reshape the face and achieve desired results in no time. There is a wide array of fillers to select from, depending on what a client is anticipating in their results. Botox®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® are all fillers that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steinbrech has successfully treated his patients with. When deciding which filler is the “best,” it depends on the treatment and results in mind.

Which Non-Surgical Facelift is the Best for men


As we age, contracting face muscles will cause facial lines to develop, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Botox® treatments can prevent the deepening of these lines in facial movements and even erase signs of aging, resulting in a younger and more refreshed appearance. It is also one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Botox® is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a qualified physician. It relaxes the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles and smooths the lines in the skin that can make you look tired or angry. It can also be used for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck spasms.


Restylane® has been safely used since 1996 worldwide. It is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. The most common treatment areas being the lines between the eyebrows and the folds from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth. Restylane® is able to bind with water which offers the benefit of longer-lasting results. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout the body. The gel adds volume and fullness to smooth facial wrinkles and folds. As it integrates into dermal tissue, it attracts and binds to water molecules to maintain volume. It is non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, making allergy testing not required.


Radiesse® is a synthetic injectable filler that reduces wrinkles, creases and scars by augmenting the body’s natural collagen supply. It is composed of microspheres in a biocompatible gel, made of the same minerals found in our bones making little risk for allergic reactions. Treatments typically take only 15 minutes and require a local anesthetic to numb any pain. Results are visible immediately and can last for months or years and be repeated as often as a client wants. It has been approved by the FDA to restore and correct signs of lipoatrophy in patients with HIV.

By administering Radiesse, the body’s own natural supply of collagen is stimulated to provide more volume and definition. Compared to other fillers, it is much longer-lasting. Patients are excited by the uplifting results they get from this filler, with over 80% reporting a high early satisfaction rate with long-lasting results at month 12, without retreatment.


Sculptra®counteracts lipoatrophy, similarly to Radiesse. It is injected into the deep dermis layer of skin to improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations and wrinkles. It is composed of an alpha hydroxy acid that has been used for the past 20 years. Results can last up to two years.

Treatment Areas

When deciding which filler is the best for you, it’s important to look at what area is being treated. Botox® is best for facial lines, such as crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth and lines on the neck.

Restylane®, on the other hand, is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours, adding volume and fullness. Radiesse® can be used for the lips, smile lines, depressed scars and the corners of the mouth, while Sculptra® is best for sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, indentations and wrinkles. Generally, Botox® works well for relaxing the face and preventing future wrinkles, but if you’re looking for more sculpting or volume, then another filler may work better for you.

Can You Get Plastic Surgery to Lose Weight?

Though plastic surgery can be used to remove fat, it is not recommended to be used explicitly to lose weight. The best and safest results from plastic surgery come after the weight has already been lost and clients are living active and healthy lifestyles. With that in mind, there are ways to remove unwanted, stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise namely liposuction and fat transfer (BodyBanking®).

Body Contouring After Weight Loss

After losing a lot of weight, many clients have excess skin that serves as a reminder of their former selves. Through body contouring, surgeons can remove excess skin then lift and tighten areas such as buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, and arms in the same procedure. Liposuction can then be used to remove the excess fat and augmentation can be done in the buttocks where weight loss may have caused flattening.

Dr. Steinbrech is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon that specializes in liposculpting for men in NYC and LA. Hi-Def Liposculpting with BodyBanking® is a less invasive alternative to traditional liposculpting that is designed to safely and effectively eliminate fatty deposits that are resistant to traditional weight loss and dieting. Hi-Def Liposculpting by Dr. Steinbrech can be used to chisel the perfect six-pack and pelvic lines.

Can You Get Plastic Surgery to Lose Weight?

Hi-Def Liposculpting involves taking out excess fat from the target area in order to create a slim, muscular, or athletic-looking appearance. This procedure alone can take one to five hours depending on the amount of fat being removed. Either local or general anesthesia is used depending on the size of the area. Small incisions are made in the target area and ultrasonic energy is transmitted into the area to break the cellular membranes surrounding the fat cells.

Many of his patients combine this procedure with Dr. Steinbrech’s unique BodyBanking® procedure. BodyBanking® is performed by taking the fat removed in the liposculpting, cleaning it, and reusing it for fat injections all at the same time as the primary procedure. This can give clients the more defined abs and fuller calves, arms, or pecs they’re looking for all in one procedure.

Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is the single most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States today. It sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. Fat can be removed from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. Male patients often consider this procedure for the removal of their “love handles” (waist).

The procedure only requires small incisions to be made and the fat is melted by ultrasonic energy. The melted fat is then suctioned out, all without damaging other cells in the body. These areas can be further accentuated by superficial liposuction to make deeper grooves in the underlying tissues.

This procedure not only offers the potential for a slimmer contoured body, but also ensures that these areas will not accumulate more fatty deposits in the future. This is not considered a weight-loss procedure as it is only able to remove small, localized concentrations of fat. Following the procedure, many can return to work within a few days but any activity requiring strain of the body should be avoided for a month at a minimum.

Benefits of BodyBanking®

Selective Fat Transfer when performing liposuction procedures allows for the number of fat cells to remain fairly constant which prevents disproportionate fat growth if there is weight gain in the future. Body fat works as an outstanding, natural filler material and can be used to fill and shape areas of the face and body for male patients. Dr. Steinbrech also uses his unique MuscleShadowing technique to create more definition around the specific muscle groups, such as the deltoids, biceps, triceps, chest, quads and calves. The average time of this procedure is only one hour and the injections may last anywhere from a few months to permanently.

The permanence of this procedure varies for each individual. Side effects of minor swelling or bruising can occur but typically subside within two days. Some fat can be reabsorbed into the body so the amount of fat that is injected into the body is greater than the amount needed. The extra fat cells allow for the right amount of volume in the desired results.

Additionally, there is little to no downtime for recovery and any discomfort is minimal. Using the patient’s own body fat means that there is no need for pre-testing as the fat cannot be rejected. This can also be a good alternative if the patient is allergic to bovine collagen. When combined with the liposculpting, this is a cost-effective option for patients and allows them to get more defined abs and fuller calves, arms, or pecs all in one procedure.
