What Is BodyBanking ®?

BodyBanking ® is a plastic surgery procedure developed by Dr. Douglas Steinbrech that allows fat transfer from one part of the body to another.  Dr. Steinbrech strongly advocates Selective Fat Transfer when performing liposuction procedures. This allows the number of fat cells to remain pretty constant, preventing disproportionate fat growth if there is weight gain in the future.  Common areas for Selective Fat Transfer are Pectorals, Glutes,  Biceps, Triceps, Shoulders, and Calves.

What Is Turn Fat to Fit®: Fat Grafting for Men?

Using a patient’s body fat, Dr. Steinbrech can use fat injections to transfer and remove fat from unwanted parts and inject it into the desired areas of the body to sculpt the perfect physique.

Fat Injections

Body fat makes for an outstanding tissue filler material that involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body to another. Fat injections in NYC can be used to fill and shape areas of the face and body for male patients.  Fat injection is not permanent and requires maintenance, which is discussed with your doctor during your consultation.

The donor and treatment areas are first injected with a local anesthetic. Fluids are then injected into the donor site to enable fat collection. Once injected, the fat is placed in a syringe and processed to be cleaned. Finally, the fat is injected into the desired area. The amount of fat injected into the body must be greater than needed (as fat is absorbed into the body). Extra fat cells allow for the right volume for your desired final result.

What Is MuscleShadowing®?

Dr. Steinbrech uses his unique MuscleShadowing® technique. MuscleShadowing® creates more definition around the specific muscle groups:  deltoids, biceps, triceps, chest, quads, and calves.
