Cosmetic Procedure Increase Among Men Underscores the Potential Benefits of a Female Plastic Surgeon, says Dr. Sepideh Saber

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber comments on a recent article that a female plastic surgeon may offer a more understanding approach to the competitive struggles faced by maturing men.

An August 15 article on Robb Report reports on the increase in the number of men receiving cosmetic procedures and plastic surgeries. The article discusses the pressure many maturing men feel to present themselves as a competitive candidate in the “battle for corporate survival” against younger men. The article adds that, although men are likely to be less vocal about their procedures, many believe that, to stay competitive professionally or even more so in the dating scene, appearance matters.

A female plastic surgeon may be able to better ease male patients’ discomfort due to their unique perspective and, often, more sensitive approach.

It also reports that the use of fillers among men has increased over 100 percent and that men also currently account for 20 to 35 percent of all cosmetic treatments. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber says that men should never feel embarrassed or ashamed for receiving cosmetic procedures or such plastic surgeries as a facelift. Moreover, for those feeling unsure or nervous, a female plastic surgeon may be able to better ease male patients’ discomfort due to their unique perspective and, often, more sensitive approach.

The Glendale plastic surgeon says that many female plastic surgeons may offer a different approach that can be helpful to individuals of all genders and orientations. Dr. Saber says that in a largely male-dominated field, female plastic surgeons understand the pressures that come with being an underdog in their industry and the perseverance required to achieve as much as their male counterparts. Female plastic surgeons with board certification not only demonstrate dedication and competitiveness, but also excellence in the field that patients are sure to take note of.

Dr. Sepideh Saber adds that when it comes to appearance issues, some men may put more trust into the opinion of a female surgeon as opposed to the more clinical approach taken by many male surgeons. She notes that, while an empathetic and sensitive approach is not exclusive to female plastic surgeons, many patients tend to find that this technique offers a more inclusive and understanding atmosphere that feels less like a sales pitch and more like a collaborative improvement plan.

The Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon says that, while cosmetic treatments and plastic surgery may not be spoken about much among men due to stigma, societal standards of masculinity, or other personal reasons, a good plastic surgeon will lend an understanding and sympathetic ear while working with the patient to help them achieve appearance goals.

Uniqlo’s AIRism Mask Is Finally Releasing in the U.K. and Europe

Following on from releases in Japan and the U.S. last month, Uniqlo has now announced plans for the U.K. and European release of its AIRism fmask. The mask was developed to help combat the spread of Coronavirus, and has proved a popular and affordable option as more and more countries make mask-wearing mandatory.

The mask itself is produced from Uniqlo’s AIRism fabric, focusing on a combination of comfort and protection. The three-layer structure features anti-microbial, moisture-wicking self-deodorizing properties, as well as releasing heat an absorbing sweat.

Additionally, the AIRism mask is machine washable with regular household detergent. According to studies, the filter contained within the mask retains 95% of its efficacy even after it has been washed 20 times.

The AIRism mask will release in packs of three from all Uniqlo stores in the U.K. and Europe, including the brand’s web store. A three-pack will cost £9.90 GBP (approximately $12.70 USD), and the mask is available in either small, medium or large and color options of gray, black or white. Uniqlo has also donated 4,000 AIRism masks to the Tate Modern.

Male Breast Reduction Treatment for Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson Shows the Widespread Appeal of Plastic Surgery, says Dr. J Plastic Surgery

 

Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad_n

A July 30 article on ShowBiz CheatSheet explores the fascinating career of football-player turned pro-wrestler turned superstar actor Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock. Contrary to what most of us would assume about a bulked up icon of a certain type of male perfection, the famously down-to-earth Mr. Johnson is surprisingly open about admitting to having had male breast reduction to deal with gynecomastia, a common condition that causes enlarged male breasts.

Unlike the vast majority of men dealing with the issue, however, by that point, Mr. Johnson had already been making his living shirtless as a superstar wrestler. He was, however, not too thrilled with his torso’s appearance in efforts such as 2001’s ‘The Mummy Returns’ and found that no amount of exercise was going to reduce the size of his widely seen pectorals.

While Mr. Johnson’s situation is not so typical, the embarrassment he may have felt being seen by millions is probably not all that different from the feelings of a young man at the beach or swimming pool.

Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, M.D., F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., known affectionately to his patients and colleagues as Dr. J, says that, while Mr. Johnson’s situation is not so typical, the embarrassment he may have felt being seen by millions is probably not all that different from the feelings of a young man at the beach or swimming pool terrified that even one person might notice his unusually large breasts.

Dr. J points out that his gynecomastia patients are typically extremely happy with their outcomes. He notes that the surgery, like female breast reduction, ear pinning (aka otoplasty), and many other procedures, fundamentally differ from such widely discussed plastic surgeries as breast augmentations and Brazilian butt lifts. Some plastic surgery patients are already extremely attractive people who want to stand out by looking that much more fabulous, says Dr. J. Other patients are, on the other hand, seeking to attract less of what they find to be the wrong kind of attention, he adds.

Plastic surgery, says Dr. J, is often thought of as a glamorous specialty but it is one of the most challenging of all medical disciplines requiring years of instruction, study, and practice to fully master. He says that, while facelifts and rhinoplasty have very long histories, plastic surgery hit the medical mainstream during the latter days of World War I as injured servicemen often felt forced to wear elaborate masks; new skin grafting procedures were developed to allow former soldiers to live more normal lives. Dr. J concludes by noting that, while the circumstances of plastic surgeries vary drastically, they are all connected by helping patients live the best lives possible.

 

About Dr. Payam Jarrah-Nejad, Dr. J

Payam Jarrah-Nejad, MD, FICS, FACS is a double board certified Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon. Nicknamed Dr. J by his patients and staff, he holds certifications from both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Dr. J is also an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a Fellow of The American College of Surgeons.

Dr. J first started his medical career during an internship he held in NYU. It was during this time that he also began working with hospitals around the New York area. It was in New Jersey that he completed his training and served as Chief Resident at Morristown Memorial Hospital.

Newly certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jarrah-Nejad received a fellowship at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City to specialize in hand surgery. The fellowship was under the guidance of Dr. Charles P. Melone which was a big influence on the young doctor. It was during his training at Wayne State University, Detroit Medical Center in Michigan that Dr. J found his true calling working with many well-known plastic surgeons.

Years later, practicing as a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. J still uses the same techniques he learned in his training in his frequent operation on the face and body. He is greatly admired by his staff and patients who happily contribute positive testimonials to his website.

Dr. J is known throughout the Los Angeles Area medical community as well as beyond it, for his record of outstanding outcomes and his engaging, patient-friendly personality. He has published a wide range of papers in many prestigious scientific and medical journals and has presented his research to local, regional and national symposia.

Finally, Dr. J has performed pro-bono surgery in several countries as part of humanitarian efforts helping children with congenital anomalies. He works side by side with charitable organizations devoted to providing needy children around the world with free plastic surgeries to repair such issues as cleft lips and palates.

Advances in Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction: Nipple Preservation

Dr.-Constance-M-Chen

Mastectomy has changed a great deal over the years. Long gone are the radical mastectomies of your grandmother’s day which removed not only breast tissue but also extensive breast skin, lymph nodes, and underlying chest muscles. By the 1980s, the most common approach was the modified radical mastectomy, which left the chest muscles intact.

Since then, the standard mastectomy is the simple mastectomy in which all of the chest muscles, most if not all of the lymph nodes, and most recently, the nipple and areola complex are all preserved. When combined with an immediate breast reconstruction at the time of the mastectomy, these techniques produce a superior cosmetic result while eliminating diseased tissue.

Nipple-sparing mastectomy has become more widespread as more breast surgeons realize the importance of the nipple-areola complex to patients after surgery. Looking and feeling normal and whole improves self-esteem both for women who are losing a breast to cancer and for those who are considering prophylactic (or preventive) mastectomy because they are at high risk for breast cancer due to family history or because they carry a genetic mutation.

Dr. Constance M. Chen

Women who are considering skin and nipple-sparing surgery must be evaluated for factors such as the size, location, and nature of the cancer to ensure that they are good candidates for the procedure. Imaging and examination are performed to look for tumor in the nipple and to rule out symptoms such as nipple discharge that might indicate the presence of disease in the nipple.

During surgery, all breast tissue is removed and the breast specimen is submitted to pathology to ensure that there are no cancer cells in or near the skin and nipple complex. Nipple preservation is possible with both small and large breasts and can be used when reconstruction is to be either with implants or with a woman’s own tissue (‘autologous reconstruction’).

Many women are candidates for nipple-sparing mastectomy, in which the nipple is preserved during the mastectomy. For women whose nipple has been resected a more traditional type of mastectomy, however, it is possible to surgically reconstruct the nipple to recreate a complete breast.

Dr. Constance M. Chen

The primary benefits of skin and nipple preservation are the superior aesthetic outcome and the resulting psychological boost. The combination of skin and nipple preservation with autologous reconstruction produces a soft, warm, natural breast that may be difficult to distinguish from the woman’s original breast.

The risk of breast cancer is considerably greater for women who inherit a genetic mutation, such as the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene, that makes a woman more likely to develop breast cancer. As more women become aware of their risk, those who test positive for the harmful mutations face the difficult decision of whether to reduce their risk by undergoing bilateral prophylactic mastectomy – preventive removal of both breasts.

These women may wonder if surgery that conserves the nipple will leave in place breast tissue that might be subject to cancer. The experience of thousands of women and their healthcare providers has been that nipple-sparing mastectomy is safe for women with genetic mutations and a major study in 2017 confirmed that prophylactic surgery essentially eliminates the risk of cancer with or without breast reconstruction.

(‘Oncologic Safety of Prophylactic Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy in a Population With BRCA Mutations’ by Jakub et al, was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in September 2017.) The report concludes that nipple-sparing mastectomies are ‘highly preventive’ against breast cancer in a BRCA population.

For women with no indication of disease in or near the nipple, including those with BRCA mutations, a nipple-sparing mastectomy essentially eliminates the risk of breast cancer and offers the opportunity for state-of-the-art breast reconstruction that maintains both the woman’s health and her sense of self.

Celebrity Fitness Trainer and Entrepreneur Jon Douglas Gallo Offers Other Fitness Pros Ways to Enjoy a Profitable Business Despite COVID-19 Challenges

Jon Gallo, a legendary fitness coach and the CEO of Results Boxing and Fitness, wants to give other fitness professionals their best chance to thrive, despite these uncertain times. With that mission in mind, he has established WeFitStudios, an initiative 100% focused on facilitating that success with minimal risk and maximum opportunity for profitability.

Certified trainers can be profitably up and running in a matter of days, without major financial investment or liability risks.

Many very talented fitness professionals are suddenly unemployed. Many passionate workout enthusiasts are unhappy that their gym is closed. That’s a terrible problem, but one that Gallo thinks is begging for a fresh, innovative solution. There are also many up-and-coming fitness coaches and trainers who were about to launch their own fitness centers and programs, until those dreams were wrecked by COVID-19.

That’s why Gallo’s organization has proactively entered into negotiations with Washington Prime Properties, to open more than 100 WeFitStudios nationwide. The first one, scheduled for opening this year in The Brunswick Square Mall in East Brunswick, NJ will offer certified instructors and personal trainers a luxurious, beautifully equipped 2000 sq ft space to train their own clients and attract new ones.

Fitness trainers cannot afford to buy, lease, and build-out a fitness studio, especially one with sufficient square footage for healthy social distancing. That’s just to open the door, and doesn’t include the effort and expense that goes into attracting a clientele, which can take years. If you go to an existing gym to sign up as a trainer, they’ll take most of the profits for themselves, leaving you with small potatoes. But we have a blueprint and strategy to give you and your fitness clients everything you could wish for, without the hassles, headaches, delays, and financial pressures.

Jon Douglas Gallo

The studios will boast state-of-the-art audio and lighting, to create an exciting, pumped-up and motivational environment equipped with all the basic fitness equipment essentials. The spaces are great for classes such as Zumba, Pound, Yoga, Ball Room Dancing, and more.

“No fitness studios have a fun nightclub theme”, says Gallo, “and parking, usually a serious obstacle for most guy goers, is always abundant. Plus the mall is a natural marketing magnet attracting throngs of potential clientele to sign up for your classes on your website our ours, and generate high-growth revenue”.

In addition to studio space for rent, WeFitStudios will offer a full menu of fitness business services. Those include web design, marketing, sales training, and ongoing entrepreneurial coaching based on Gallo’s extraordinary track record of success.

Managing Expectations for Breast Reconstruction; It’s a Process

Dr.-Constance-M-Chen

Breast reconstruction has come a long way. Advances in surgical technique have made it possible to use a woman’s own tissue to construct a breast that is soft and warm and often very similar to the breast she has lost to mastectomy. This ‘autologous reconstruction’ has become the gold standard in breast reconstruction and can even offer women the possibility of reconnecting nerves to restore sensation to the breast.

Autologous reconstruction can be performed with excellent results at any time, but the best aesthetic outcome is achieved when we do reconstruction in a single surgery at the time of the mastectomy. When the woman awakes after surgery, she already has a new breast, which reduces the emotional impact of having lost a breast. However, it is important for women to know from her first surgical consultation that the breast she wakes up with after surgery – whether performed at the time of her mastectomy or later – may not represent the end of breast reconstruction but a giant first step. For most women, breast reconstruction is not a single procedure but requires a process of adjustments until the best possible result is achieved.

Dr. Constance M. Chen

The goal of reconstruction is to restore symmetry to a woman’s body – symmetry to her other breast and proper proportion to the rest of her body. Symmetry is easier to achieve when both breasts have been removed and are being reconstructed at the same time (bilateral reconstruction). When reconstructing one breast (unilateral reconstruction), it can be more difficult to match the size, shape, and position of the ‘sister’ breast and adjustments may be needed to one or both breasts to achieve the desired symmetry.

We have a wide range of techniques we can use to make the necessary adjustments. Each woman will have an individualized plan that may include one or more of these procedures.

Dr. Constance M. Chen

A mastoplexy or breast lift may be performed on the unaffected breast if its natural droop cannot be replicated in the reconstructed breast. A breast lift will remove excess skin and may elevate only the nipple and areola so they are placed higher on the breast or elevate the breast tissue itself so it sits higher on the chest wall. A breast lift will not significantly alter the size of the breast.

A breast reduction on the unaffected breast may be needed to match the size of the reconstructed breast. The procedure will remove excess skin and tissue and position the breast tissue and nipple-areola complex higher on the chest wall. Breast augmentation to increase the size of the unaffected breast will typically involve placing a silicone gel or saline implant under the pectoral muscle.

Fat grafting, which transfers fat from another part of the body to the breast, is very useful for filling small areas to improve size, shape, and symmetry. Fat is removed from the donor site, frequently the abdomen, using liposuction, which suctions fat out through tiny incisions, and injected into the breast. Fat grafting and liposuction may be used on the unaffected breast or to make small corrections to the reconstructed breast.

Abdominal wall repair may be performed if tissue taken from the abdomen to fashion the new breast leaves the abdomen in need of improvements to its contour.

“Adjustments to autologous breast reconstruction are generally made after the initial surgery has healed and other treatments are complete”. says Dr. Chen. “They represent the final steps in a woman’s journey to restore her health and sense of self”.

‘In Depth’ Series With Laurence Fishburne Discusses Breast Cancer Awareness

Photograph by Anna Shvets

Critically acclaimed actor Laurence Fishburne is given high praise for his compelling performances throughout the decades. Now the ‘King of New York (1990)’ actor is using his talents as host for public television’s ‘In Depth’ with Laurence Fishburne. The informational program highlights a large variety of globally essential topics to inform its viewing audience. An upcoming episode is to feature an issue that impacts the lives of many women worldwide: breast cancer.

In the United States, breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer found in women. Statistically, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. This type of cancer occurs when DNA changes make normal healthy breast cells cancerous.

Risk factors include a family history of breast cancer, being overweight, and women of a Caucasian or African American ethnicity have a higher chance of developing the disease. Regular self-examinations are recommended for catching breast cancer early on, as well as regular breast cancer screenings for women age 40 and up.

Breast cancer is a scary experience for any woman, which is why increased awareness of the disease is crucial in prevention and saving lives. ‘In Depth’ will reveal more details about breast cancer awareness in the new episode. The segment is expected to be distributed during October, or Breast Cancer Awareness month.

‘In Depth’ with Laurence Fishburne is carefully inspected before broadcast. The informational TV segment has accepted numerous awards for its endeavors.

World Renowned Celebrity Nutritionist, Cynthia Garcia, Launches New Stuck Story Self-Coaching Method

Cynthia Garcia, founder of the Institute of Transformational Nutrition, renowned celebrity nutritionist, and leading expert in the field of transformational mindset work, recently launched the Stuck Story Self-Coaching Method.

Through two decades of experience, Cynthia discovered that people have big dreams for their lives but often find themselves stuck because of the stories they tell themselves. They want to take action but these false or incomplete narratives hold them back.

I grew up in extreme poverty in an Appalachian mountain home with no running water and no indoor bathroom. We had one wood stove that heated the house and very little money for food. I was surrounded by drugs, alcohol, and domestic abuse and endured physical, emotional, and sexual abuse that started at the age of five.

Cynthia Garcia.

But it’s what came from that upbringing that inspired Cynthia to create this method. “I learned how to thrive in spite of it all by escaping into books and using the stories I found inside as my survival mechanism. I began to see how other people lived. Then I used my imagination to rewrite my own stories, my history, so I could deal with the darkest moments of my life and create a new one”, says Garcia.

This method reveals years of learned behaviors and limiting beliefs and allows people to rewrite the stories they’ve been telling themselves so they can finally get unstuck and live successful lives.

Now, Cynthia’s Stuck Story Self-Coaching Method helps people identify the stories that are keeping them stuck so they can create lives, careers, and relationships that are so good, they’re only jealous of themselves.

For those interested in discovering the story that’s holding them back, they can visit Cynthia’s website to take the free Stuck Story assessment.

About Cynthia Garcia

Cynthia Garcia is a female founder, life coach, best-selling author, media personality, celebrity nutritionist, and mental health advocate. She overcame an insanely dysfunctional childhood filled with abuse, crime, addiction, and poverty. Today, she inspires others to rewrite their stories by showing what was possible when she rewrote her own.

Cynthia is a leading expert in the field of transformational mindset work. She is the founder and CEO of the Institute of Transformational Nutrition (ITN), the modern-day coaching school for forward-thinking coaches and those who want to become one. She’s also the official nutritionist for Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian. Cynthia was trained as a Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) but quickly realized that people are fed by so much more than what’s on their plate. This started her deeper dive into creating the coaching method, Transformational Nutrition® – the scientific study of what feeds you – physically, mentally, and spiritually.
