  • The Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Procedure I Would Perform For My Own Kids

    Being a parent, it is my responsibility to teach my kids to be confident, and that confidence isn’t entirely based on one’s outward appearance. I am personally not a proponent of aesthetic plastic surgery for minors, but as a father of boys, I feel very empathetic towards boys and young men with gynecomastia. The treatment, (breast reduction surgery), is the only aesthetic surgical procedure that I will perform on children. 

  • Beard and Chest Hair Transplants Are Growing Among Baby-Faced Men

    Hipster culture still reigns supreme, so is it any wonder that the word “beard implant” has even infiltrated our vocabulary? As a former student of Linguistics, I would have assumed that the inclusion of that expression in any phrase would have made it a never-before-uttered, entirely original phrase like those covered in my Noam Chomsky-penned textbooks. But yes, like skinny jeans, vintage everything and a deep and real commitment to normcore, people are going to some major lengths to achieve that artfully deconstructed, “I just don’t care” effect. 

  • Cosmetic Procedure Options for Men Considering A Makeover

    Attention fellas: Plastic surgery isn't just for the ladies anymore. In fact, it hasn’t been for a while but male-centric options are just now beginning to go mainstream. While male-focused procedures may not make the headlines as frequently, they are certainly available if you feel like it's time for some sprucing up. 

  • Wanna Be Like Mike? Magic Mike? We’ve Got a Procedure for That!

    With the stigma surrounding plastic surgery subsiding, I’m seeing a growing influx of men coming into my practice for an aesthetic procedure and it isn’t limited to my practice either. In fact, over the past five years, the number of men undergoing plastic surgery has gone up by a whopping 43%, according to the annual statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). More than ever, the media is playing a significant role in how men are feeling about themselves and influencing their decision to undergo plastic surgery. 

  • Are Calf Implants Stranger than Breast Implants?

    By: Dr. Jonathan Kaplan 

    A few years ago, a patient came in to see me – male, adult, healthy, in a happy marriage. However, there was something missing. His self-confidence was affected by, of all things, his poorly developed calf muscles. He had a regular exercise routine, but could not build up his calves in proportion to the rest of his body. The patient had very reasonable expectations. He wasn’t a body builder or on steroids – he was just trying to stay in shape and have a fit, toned body! 

  • Pectoral Implants: Are You a Good Candidate for This Procedure?

    The beauty of living in 2015 is that cosmetic surgery is within reach of everyone. These days, if a person feels truly unhappy with the way they look, and that unhappiness is having a profound effect on their well-being and ability to function as a generally content and productive member of society, there are significantly more accessible options to fix virtually anything aesthetic now than there were even 10 years ago. 

  • Men, It's Time to Etch Those Abs For Summer!

    It seems almost too good to be true. Can we skip the gym, relax on the diet – and just see a plastic surgeon? Can a little nip and tuck actually mimic (or replace) the effects of exercise and physical fitness? 

  • Everything You Might Want to Know About Penis Enhancement, But Are Afraid to Ask

    Compared to other cosmetic procedures, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, facial fillers and the like, we hear far less about penis enhancement. Perhaps there is still significantly more stigma associated with this procedure, or perhaps it’s just not well-suited for television, but there’s simply not a lot of talk about it in almost any media, at least nothing I’m reading or on shows I’m watching, and as such, there are a lot of seemingly unanswered questions revolving around penis enhancement. For example - - How is it done? Why? 

  • Make Room Ladies - Men are Opting for Cosmetic Surgery Too

    I have always had a thing for older men. In fact, I married a man who is 15 years older than me and constantly tell him he SHOULD NOT color his gray hair (mainly because I don’t want him to walk around with a head looking like its covered in shoe polish but I digress). To me his deep-set wrinkles remind me of his distinguished life and honestly I am more attracted to him now than I was 16 years ago when we first met. Now however, the old adage that men age gracefully and are considered “distinguished and mature” is getting a bit of a re-examination among boomers.  

  • Man Power: Men Get Cued in and Queue Up for Cosmetic Surgery

    Once the stomping ground of vintage Hollywood actresses and grande dames clamoring for their lost youth, the world of cosmetic surgery has come a long way, baby. From neuromodulators (Botox) and fillers, to lasers, facelifts and beyond — we may not be winning the war on aging, but we’re certainly looking better for the fight. And gosh darn it the menfolk want in on that action too.
