Guys, correct embarrassing breasts- be ready for the beach

Women aren't the only ones who feel uncomfortable when beach season begins to loom. If you suffer from gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts), you may be very reluctant to remove your shirt at the beach, in the gym, or elsewhere. Chances are, you've worked hard to get rid of the breasts, but with no success. You may have lost weight from everywhere else on your body, but the stubborn breasts hold on. And chest exercises may just make the problem worse by building up muscles that make your breasts look even bigger.

Things to do Before You Get Plastic Surgery

If you are noticing the signs of aging every time you look in the mirror, you may be thinking that plastic surgery would be a great way to restore your appearance. Plastic surgery can turn back the clock on your appearance, but plastic surgery shouldn't be your first thought if you are looking for a fresher appearance. Plastic surgery can achieve unparalleled rejuvenation, but it also comes with tradeoffs, so before deciding on plastic surgery, it is often better to try a few other things first.  Some things to try before plastic surgery, include:

Controversy Surrounding the "Beauty Premium"

In mid-July Newsweek columnist Jessica Bennett re-ignited a long-simmering controversy about the impact of appearance on jobs, careers, and income. In combination with the column, the magazine published the results of its own survey of corporate hiring managers and members of the general public about the issue. The survey showed that fifty-seven percent of hiring managers believed qualified but unattractive candidates were likely to have a harder time getting a job.

Fraudulent Cosmetic Surgeons Flee Custody after Buttock Augmentation Patient Dies

This is advice we hate to have to repeat: never get cosmetic procedures, including so-called non-surgical procedures, from a person without first checking to ensure that the practitioner is licensed to practice medicine. Also, never receive an injection or other procedure in a setting such as a person's home or other non-clinical setting.

Body Image Problems and Men: Objectification of a Different Color

Much of the discussion about body image problems has been associated with women. Women, we are told, see images of models and actresses on billboards, magazines, and television, and often feel self-conscious by comparison. Women internalize media ideals of beauty, which leads to self-objectification (imagining themselves as a collection of body parts that are sexual objects, rather than as a human being), then to body surveillance (closer attention to their appearance) and body shame, which then drives them to seek to pursue the media-imposed ideal.

Little Changes Can make a Big Difference

If you look at your face and feel that your appearance is either too masculine or too feminine, you may wonder whether anything can be done to help you look more like you feel you should look. The answer is: yes. Actually, the physical differences between a masculine face and a feminine one are very subtle, and often can be addressed with a number of treatments.
