Do I Have Options for Breast Reconstruction?

There are several ways to reconstruct the breast after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction is typically done with either breast implants or your own tissue; sometimes these techniques are combined.

Can a Chemical Peel Help With Sun Damage?

A chemical peel can improve discoloration, spots, and other blemishes on the face—including sun damage. Chemical peels range from mild to moderate to deep.

Does a Breast Augmentation Affect Nipple Size?

A breast augmentation is a great way to enhance the size or shape of the breasts. People often wonder if increasing the size of the breast will affect the size of the nipple or areola. In most cases, a breast augmentation will not affect nipple size. The areola (the darker pigment around the nipple) will either be unchanged or may look slightly fuller. Aside from a more prominent look, the nipple will not get larger from a breast augmentation alone. Implants can cause [...]

What Symptoms Can Breast Revision Fix?

Breast augmentation can be a successful and satisfying procedure to help women achieve larger, more symmetric breasts or natural looking breasts after a mastectomy. Sometimes, however, surgery does not go as planned, implants rupture, or a patient changes her mind about the size of her implants. According to the FDA, 37% of all breast revision surgeries in the United States are done to switch out implants for a larger size. To fix these problems, a surgeon can perform a breast revision. Breast revision [...]

What Is Recovery Like For Deviated Septum Surgery?

Is a Facelift Permanent?

A facelift can dramatically alter the appearance, removing excess skin, tightening sagging skin, and generally giving the face a nice ‘lift.’ But how long does it last? A facelift is not a permanent solution to an aging face – the face will continue to age, just as it had before. However, it does slow down the aging process and you will continue to look younger after the procedure. Most doctors agree that a facelift can ‘last’ anywhere from five to 15 years – [...]

During breast augmentation surgery, breast implants are placed between your chest wall and your breast, away from the breast ducts or mammary glands where milk comes from. While some glandular tissue is removed during a breast reduction, in most cases [...]

Does Labiaplasty Affect Intimacy?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces or reshapes the inner lips, or ‘labia minora’ of the vulva. Childbirth, aging and gravity, or hormones may affect the shape and size of the labia. When the labia minora are no longer protected by the labia majora there can be difficulties with personal hygiene, irritation and sexual intercourse. Enlarged labia also make it difficult to participate in certain sports such as cycling, horseback riding, running and exercising. Some women worry that labiaplasty will decrease sexual [...]
