Gynecomastia (enlargement of male breast tissue) affects over half of all men. A smooth, contoured chest can be achieved through a procedure known as a male breast reduction. Male breast reductions may be performed using liposuction, an incision to remove excess tissues or a combination of the two.
Nipple inversion affects between 10-20% of all men and women and can be a cause of self-consciousness for many of those affected. Nipple inversion may occur in various grades or forms, sometimes affecting only one nipple or the nipple may protrude under certain circumstances, but is primarily in an inverted state. Fortunately, inverted nipple correction is a relatively simple procedure that can correct undesired nipple inversion.
A nipple or areola reduction can be performed if nipples are too large, hanging, or over-projecting. It is not recommended in women who plan on breastfeeding. During the procedure, a ring of skin is removed from the base of the nipple and the incision is closed with dissolvable sutures. This procedure can be performed in the clinic under local anesthesia.
Breast reconstruction is used for women who have lost one or both breasts during a mastectomy or who lack breasts due to a congenital or developmental abnormality. The procedure restores a symmetric appearance of the breasts, maintains body proportions, allows clothes to fit better, and most importantly, boosts self-confidence.
Many men and women wish to change the appearance of their buttocks and seek buttock augmentation for improvement. Common complaints prior to surgery would include unhappiness about the size and shape of the buttocks or asymmetry. Buttock augmentation surgery uses implants, fat grafting or a combination of both to increase fullness, roundness and projection of the buttocks.
In some women, the labia can become enlarged and elongated as a result of childbirth, aging or other reasons, resulting in discomfort, hygiene issues, or it may appear aesthetically displeasing. Labiaplasty permanently corrects this problem and is considered by plastic surgeons to be a fairly simple procedure that can be performed under a local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.
Liposuction is a procedure that involves the use of a suction machine to surgically remove excess fat from unwanted areas on the body. The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who have persistent bulges of fat that have not responded favorably to diet and exercise.
Giving birth is one of the most rewarding experiences of a woman’s life. However, the changes that go along with motherhood can cause women to feel unfamiliar or unhappy with her post-baby body. Procedures know as mommy makeovers offer a solution to stretched, loose and sagging skin that doesn’t return to its original state.
