BodyBanking® for Men

BodyBanking® for Men


What is BodyBanking®?

BodyBanking® is a specialized cosmetic surgery procedure now available to men in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles that removes fat from bad areas and transfers it to desired areas. It was developed by the renowned surgeon and male aesthetics expert Dr. Douglas Steinbrech. BodyBanking® seamlessly transfers fat from one part of your body to the other to help balance out everything in your body. Dr. Steinbrech’s work is an upgrade of Selective Fat Transfer used in liposuction procedures. Selective Fat Transfer keeps the number of fat cells consistent during the transfer. This, in turn, prevents disproportionate fat growth if weight gain occurs in the future. There are a lot of different ways that you can use Selective Fat Transfer. The most common areas for Selective Fat Transfer for men include buttocks, pectorals, arms, shoulders, faces, and legs.

What is Turn Fat to Fit™?

Dr. Steinbrech can transfer and remove fat from unwanted parts using a male patient’s body fat. He can then inject it into desired body areas to sculpt the perfect physique’s appearance.

Fat Injections

Body fat is one of the only tissue filler materials made naturally by your body, available in large quantities. This means you do not have to get tested for compatibility; it’s already naturally compatible. Fat injections fill, contour, and shape areas of a man’s face and body. That’s why so many men in Chicago want fat injections using BodyBanking®. Though this is an excellent procedure, fat injection is not permanent and requires maintenance. Dr. Steinbrech will tell you what to expect on maintenance at your consultation.

How Body Fat Injections Work

BodyBanking® begins with the donor and desired treatment areas receiving a local anesthetic. Next, the doctor will add fluids to the donor site to help enable fat collection. Dr. Steinbrech then collects the fat via a syringe-like device. Once the fat has been collected, it’s processed to be cleaned and prepared for injection. After the fat is treated, it is injected into your desired area. It’s important to note that the amount of fat injected into the body will appear to be greater than the amount needed. This is normal, as some fat will be absorbed into the body. Many BodyBanking® patients notice mild swelling or light bruising. These side effects will subside after 48 hours.

What is MuscleShadowing™?

Dr. Steinbrech utilizes his unique MuscleShadowing™ technique to boost the effects of specific fat injections for men in Chicago.
