Just What I Needed: A Trip To The Offices Of Dr. Douglas Steinbrech, NYC's Go-To Plastic Surgeon For Men Comments (0)

Male-plastic-surgery-selfie-Dr-Douglas-Steinbrech-Boy-CultureSelfie-Esteem: Selfies may be leading to the rise in plastic surgery.

Original photography by Matthew Rettenmund

"I've never had any plastic surgery. Except I had an eye done once."

It could have been a conversation between Joan Blondell and Eve Arden in the late '60s, but it was a conversation between two middle-aged (if we live into our nineties) gay men in 2014. One of them was me.

I'd asked a pal of mine about cosmetic surgery and was surprised my friend didn't "count" the surgical correction of a drooping eyelid. Apparently, the lid could have obstructed his vision so was classified as something he needed. He told me it—however you'd classify it—had gone well and had never been something he regretted.

In anticipation of this post, I'd asked male acquaintances and Facebook friends for their experiences with plastic surgery, and had received a raft of responses, right in line with statistics that show men are catching up to women in this arena. As of 2012, about a million American men were opting for plastic surgery of some kind every year, including sharp increases in men seeking facelifts, lipo and breast reduction. That accounted for only 10% of procedures overall, but the numbers feel outdated already.

AdAre you satisfied with what you've got?

"I've had lots done!" one friend wrote me. "Nose job, 3 gynecomastia operations, lipo in chest and abdomen, regular botox and Radiesse injections in the face. Whew! It's a lot of work and money to try to look decent as one ages." Judging from his youthful Facebook visage, the money has been worth it. Aside from wearing compression vests for "weeks" after lipo, which he described as a bit of a pain, he told me, "I would definitely recommend these procedures to anyone who feels they need them."

I've had lots done!

Still another friend told me of having a nosejob to balance out his hair loss. It turned into two nosejobs when the first left his schnozz a bit too reminiscent of a shark's fin. He's happy with it now, but warned that his female friend's new nose had left her looking like a dog. Hyperbole? No. "I mean, like a dog who should be eating Alpo out of a bowl," he clarified, suggesting her nose had taken on a canine appearance. She, too, had had it fixed, and was now happy. Both he and his friend felt they needed the work done, and both had eventually wound up with the result they expected.

So, judging from statistics and my unscientific poll, the number of people who feel they need plastic surgery seems to be skyrocketing...the most interesting word in that sentence being "need."

I've Written A Letter To Mommy: Why Saying Something About Madonna Usually Says Something About Yourself Comments (0)

Madonna-Gloria-Swanson-Bette-DavisMadonna is older than both Gloria Swanson and Bette Davis were in their most-referenced roles.

Follow me on Facebook, follow Boy Culture on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, follow my sexy-guy Instagram, delve into my extremely Work Unfriendly Tumblr (caution!) and/or check out all my YouTube uploads.

Probably fewer gay men than ever are into Madonna. I don't think it's that Madonna's gay fanbase is decimated, but it's more de rigeur to hate on her from within that community than at any other time in her career. We're not talking about people who don't care for Madonna's music, we're talking about the men who take every opportunity to eviscerate the woman, often in order to get a laugh.

Bruce-JennerBruce now.

When Bruce Jenner had his first facelift at least 25 years ago, it was one of the first times (along with Cher having...everything...done) that I was very aware of a celebrity totally changing his or her appearance for the worse via cosmetic surgery. It was probably the first celebrity surgery I minorly obsessed over, if only because he had been such an outrageously sexy, masculine dude. Ever since then, my opinion on facelifts for men has been that they're quite remarkably feminizing.

Dying To Look Good Comments (0)

Gay-men-plastic-surgery

The article is actually about being hung up on our looks, and do you know any gay men who are not? It's a great piece. I loved the part where a British survey of gay men revealed that nearly half would give up a year from their lives to have a great body now, and 10% would give up a full 11 (!) years from their lives to have that rockin' bod.

How many, if any, years of your life would you give up in order to have the body you want now?

Alyssa Milano Shows Who's The Boss Comments (0)

Alyssa-milano-pr-all-starsFat and sassy

Jay-MohrI'm not a big Alyssa Milano fan, but she's lovely. Jay Mohr, a horrendous douchebag and probably the only man Scott Wolf didn't enjoy kissing (in the amazing movie Go), felt the need to poke fun at her weight on the radio, saying it looked as if she'd had a baby and then gave up. "I read it on her gut," he added bluntly.

Milano's response was brilliant, in that it seemed like she was taking the high road...but she was really going off-road to run over the entire Mohr family:

"So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me. Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife."

All very nicey-nice, right? Except his "beautiful wife" looks like this.
