While most butt enhancing procedures have been performed on women, a growing number of men are now seeking out butt lift and augmentation procedures these solutions for a more pronounced and shapelier buttocks. In a similar way to how the procedure is performed on women, a male butt augmentation procedure utilizes fat harvested through liposuction from areas like the back, abdomen and flanks. The fat is then safely transferred to the buttocks for augmentation and definition.
The goal of the male buttocks augmentation is to give the appearance of a larger and stronger gluteus maximus and gluteus medius. Unlike women who frequently desire a softer, rounder buttocks, men usually desire a more square and stronger appearance. Dr. Millard achieves this by injecting the fat into the muscle of the buttocks instead of the fattier areas. This can be safely achieved using a technique pioneered by Dr. Millard himself, called ultrasound grafted fat augmentation technique or UGFAT.
Gynecomastia is the presence of excess breast tissue in men. This is a common occurrence and affects 40%-60% of men. In order to combat gynecomastia, men can undergo male breast reduction surgery to restore their chest and pectoral muscles.
Dr. John Millard pioneered VASER Hi-Def, which is the perfect tool for sculpting the male form. This groundbreaking technology not only removes fat, but it also tightens skin and promotes muscle definition. It can be used to enhance the abs, pecs, torso arms and more.
At the end of the consultation, Dr. Millard will develop a personalized procedure plan for the patient. This will include making decisions about anesthesia, technique, post-operative care and more. All of these options can affect the price of a male buttocks fat transfer procedure. For this reason, Dr. Millard asks that patients wait until the end of the consultation in order to discuss pricing. Cost is variable and it is at this time that Dr. Millard will be able to provide the most accurate price estimate. If the patient chooses to undergo additional procedures, the price will reflect that.
Trans people in the U.S. have turned to underground silicone injections for decades. And it has particularly impacted trans women of color and those living in poverty. Anke Gladnick for NPR hide caption
For five years the injections posed no problems. But in 2017 Pate began to experience fatigue, migraines, and back and leg pain. Later, doctors found that the silicone had spread down her legs, "damaging her tissue and threatening her overall health," People reported.
It was the equivalent of a serve that came back with more spin and more heat than the sender ever expected. In February, Martina Navratilova wrote an op-ed in London's Sunday Times, discussing the hot-button issue of transgender athletes. Her point, she thought, was hardly tendentious, arguing that male athletes who transition to become female athletes but declined to undergo gender reassignment surgery should not be allowed to compete against women. "I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers," Navratilova wrote, "but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.... It's insane and it's cheating."
If Navratilova "caught a lot of s---," as she puts it, she also found a swath of supporters who agreed with her point that identifying as a woman should not, in itself, bring about the right to compete in women's sports. And that transgender athletes who take hormones but have not undergone sexual reassignment surgery are conferred an unfair competitive advantage against a field of females, mostly because of their muscle mass.
For all the complexity and all the thorny questions raised about sexuality and gender, Richards made her case with just two affidavits: one from the doctor who had performed her surgery, the other from King. "Both attested to the fact that, at this point, I was female and deserved to be allowed to play other women," Richards says. "And that was it."
Judge Alfred Ascione agreed, and in a 13-page decision he ruled that, as a woman, Richards was free to play in the U.S. Open without taking a chromosome test. He also rejected the USTA's bizarre claim that allowing transsexual players to compete would unleash an army of male athletes seeking gender reassignment in order to infiltrate women's sports. "When an individual such as plaintiff, a successful physician, a husband and father, finds it necessary for his own mental sanity to undergo a sex reassignment," Ascione wrote, "the unfounded fears and misconceptions of defendants must give way to the overwhelming medical evidence that this person is now female."
But here's one thing Richards did not do: become the voice or the face of a movement. Owing perhaps to the same fierce streak of individualism that guided her to undergo reassignment at a time before most Americans knew such a thing existed, she resists the talking points of the trans movement and believes firmly that gender is binary. ("I like the difference between men and women," she told The Telegraph in March. "I like the concept of male and female.") In addition to her defense of Navratilova and her skepticism of trans athletes who compete without gender reassignment, Richards does not believe in the gender fluidity at the core of the trans movement. "There is no such thing," she says flatly. "The population doesn't repopulate itself from fluidity. It's what the world is all about, right?
"I never would have been allowed to play on the women's tour if I was a 'trans' something. But now it's a third category. It's not male-female. It's gender fluidity. It's something in between .... I am as bewildered by it as the average person. But look, things are different now. The world changes."
Sometimes people do not identify with the biological sex they are assigned at birth. In short, this is what it means to be transgender. For example, someone can have XX chromosomes and not identify as female. Or they can have XY chromosomes and not identify as male.
There are also some medical conditions that make identifying as male or female not so simple. For example, some people with XY chromosomes may have a condition where their bodies cannot react to male hormones. In turn, they look, act, and feel like women. An example of such a condition is Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome.1
In other cases, people with XX chromosomes may have a condition that exposed them to high levels of male hormones before birth, giving them male body parts. An example of such a condition is called Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia.2 This can lead to the individuals looking and feeling more like men.
Most people are assigned a biological sex at birth based on their body parts, not on their chromosomes. But again, just because someone is born with male body parts does not mean they identify as being male.
All in all, if a transgender woman was born with a set of XY sex chromosomes, she will still have XY chromosomes after sex reassignment surgery. Having XY chromosomes does not mean that a person is male. It just means they most likely had male body parts at birth.
One victim told detectives that she met with Butler at his room at the El Patio Motel where she received four silicone injections to both buttocks in September and October of 2012, and was charged $200 per injection.She described the procedure to detectives, claiming Butler used a felt tip pen to mark areas on her buttocks. She said he then poured out a clear liquid from a Pedialyte bottle into a plastic cup, filling the syringe from the cup and injecting the liquid into her buttocks.Once the injections were completed, Butler would clean the blood from the skin and apply Krazy Glue to the incisions, the victim told detectives.Another victim -- a man -- told investigators he received weekly injections from Butler for almost four months starting in June. In October, he said he developed a serious infection and needed surgery.Police say the fourth person to come forward -- also a man -- was told by Butler to get naked and lay in a prone position to receive the injections.The man claimed Butler, on their first encounter, poured the silicone into the palm of his hand and then rubbed it onto his face -- even splashing some in his own eyes.Butler told the man, "See, it's real silicone. I wouldn't be able to put this in my eyes if it were fake," the arrest report states.
Butler, who goes by the name "Tamieka," would visit his victims in the hospital "dressed as a woman with a large wig and a fur coat" and threaten them not to tell the medical staff where they received the injections.
Ideally females should get the vaccine before they become sexually active and exposed to HPV. Females who are sexually active may also benefit from vaccination, but they may get less benefit. This is because they may have already been exposed to one or more of the HPV types targeted by the vaccines. However, few sexually active young women are infected with all HPV types prevented by the vaccines, so most young women could still get protection by getting vaccinated.
HPV vaccine is licensed for use in boys and men. It has been found to be safe and effective for males 9 -26 years. ACIP recommends routine vaccination of boys aged 11 or 12 years with with a series of doses. The vaccination series can be started beginning at age 9 years. Vaccination is recommended for males aged 13 through 21 years who have not already been vaccinated or who have not received all recommended doses. The vaccine is most effective when given at younger ages; males aged 22 through 26 years may be vaccinated. CDC recommends 11 to 12 year olds get two doses of HPV vaccine to protect against cancers caused by HPV. For more information on the recommendations, please see: 781b155fdc
