Some men accumulate excess body fat in their chest area which creates an effect of breasts on the male, or “man boobs”. For many men, this can be a very embarrassing problem and they may become so self-conscious about their appearance that they refuse to take their shirt off in public or even in front of a significant other. Some plastic surgeons do offer a simple solution for getting rid of “man boobs” for good. Gynecomastia surgery is a very simple procedure that involves removing both fat and tissue around the chest area to create a very flat, streamlined appearance. Dr. Kevin Light from the Texas Institute of Functional Medicines in Dallas shares these tips and insights for correcting this common problem:
If you’ve decided to undergo the breast reduction procedure, you will need to take steps to prepare for surgery and make arrangements for the night of your procedure. Even though a breast reduction procedure sounds fairly simple, it can take between three to five hours and may be performed in a hospital setting or in an outpatient facility. If you are not staying in a hospital overnight, you will need to have someone drive you home and stay with you for at least 24 hours after your procedure.
Along the road of life there are sure to be bumps, or so the cliche goes, and for the most part, you can do nothing about them. Except, of course, when those bumps are on your nose. For more than 300,000 Americans a year Rhinoplasty, or a "nose job," has helped correct such unsightly nasal bumps and bulges. For many more, however, this type of correction would never be an option. Forget the average price tag of $3,332 not including anesthesia, it hurts; don't let the whimsical "nose job" nickname fool you. Besides, how can you be sure you will be happy with the results? Well, for patients who can't handle the bumps anymore, but aren't yet ready for major surgery, California doctor Alexander Z. Rivkin may have found a solution: the Non-Surgical Nose Job.
Acne scars, scars from an injury, or extreme cases of skin discoloration typically do not disappear completely on their own. While some topical skincare products can help reduce the appearance of scars and skin damage, you will still be left with an impression or indentation of the skin, and some mild discoloration.
Since most health insurance providers don’t cover the costs of elective surgery, your cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure may be financed out of your own pocket. Still, saving money for your treatment isn’t the only way to manage cosmetic or plastic surgery costs; financing plans, credit cards and personal loans can help you get the procedure you need without overextending your monthly budget.
Even though many people think of getting a facelift to rejuvenate their appearance, an extensive plastic surgery procedure might not even be necessary to achieve a more youthful look. Botox can be used to address the issue of lines and wrinkles around key facial compartments to give you an instant “lift” – and all without surgery. Celibre Laser Skin Care in Torrance, California has developed a special facial shaping technique known as the Botox Brow Lift. This procedure is ideal for anyone who has some heaviness or droopiness in the brow area and eyelids, and is looking for a minimally-invasive surgery treatment that delivers instant results.
For many women, the tummy tuck is a “dream” procedure, a chance to get back their pre-pregnancy body or just achieve a flat stomach and abdominal definition they’ve wanted for years. While the results from this procedure can completely transform the midsection and torso, it’s still a fairly extensive procedure and does involve some downtime.
