before and after photo 2 months after breast augmentation

Widely spaced nipples and areolas is a common issue with women of all ages, and many of these women wonder if breast augmentation can treat this problem.

The answer is both Yes and No. Breast implants cannot decrease the space between widely spaced nipples, but it can improve the appearance of the breasts and torso so much that this wide space is not so noticeable. The only way to physically decrease the space between the nipples is to perform a breast lift style operation that results in scars all the way around the areolae, which is usually not an attractive option for most women who are interested in breast augmentation where the scars are normally so well hidden.

Keep in mind that widely spaced nipples is a very different issue from widely spaced breasts and/or breast implants. An excessively wide space between breast implants is a very unattractive look, and is very easy to avoid with appropriate implant selection and surgical technique. This is not the same issue as widely spaced nipples though, so try not to confuse these two concepts.

How breast implants settle over time after breast augmentation surgeryDropping, settling, and “fluffing”, are the most common terms used to describe the single most important phenomenon in breast augmentation surgery.

As the skin beneath the nipple stretches, it allows the breast to take on a rounder, more attractive shape, and also allows the implant to drop or settle into a more natural position. This improves the slope in the upper pole of the breast, and is the final step towards having your true “final result”. For most women, this settling process is 70-80% complete around 3-4 months after surgery, and 100% complete at 9-12 months.

Keller Funnel No Touch Breast Augmentation by rapid recovery breast augmentation specialist Dr Nicholas Vendemia of MASWe take breast augmentation surgery very seriously here at MAS, and the Keller Funnel is a serious device for women interested in the safest, quickest, and least traumatic insertion technique for breast implants.

The No Touch Breast Augmentation is redefining the standard for safety and sterility with breast implant surgery of all types (breast augmentation, breast implant exchange, breast implant revision, and breast reconstruction), and in our practice we consider it to be the gold standard for all of our breast augmentation procedures. When the funnel is used properly, the implants are transferred directly from the manufacturer’s sterile container into the sterile funnel and into the breast pocket without being touched by human hands or any other possible contaminants, hence the “No Touch” designation. The funnels advanced hydrophilic coating protects the implant shell during the transfer, and allows the implant to pass through a smaller incision (which translates into a smaller scar) in a way that is far less traumatic than finger insertion (which leads to a shorter recovery time).

Keep reading for more information and a video demonstration of the Keller Funnel in action and see how it compares to traditional finger insertion techniques.

the best clinical sunscreensThe American Melanoma Foundation is sponsoring an initiative to find more innovative and more effective sun protection products to help decrease the incidence of skin cancer.

It’s nice to see an initiative like this because there hasn’t been much thought in the world of SPF in recent years, and with our ozone depleting, and more of the damaging rays making it to our skin, it’s more important than ever to know how to protect it. The shelves of any Duane Read are lined with so many product choices that it can make your head spin, so anything that can narrow down those choices for us and give us some direction when it comes to sun protection, is a very good thing. If you want to nominate a new product, or if you know someone who is working on such a product, click here for the entry form. The deadline is April 1st, 2015.

And if you want to read more about my favorite SPF products on the market now, please click the Read more link and enjoy…

Microliposuction is a specialized liposuction technique designed to treat areas of the face and body that are too small for traditional liposuction. Micro lipo often focuses on tightening the skin, although fat removal is performed in conjunction as needed. Here are four great target areas for micro lipo.

#1. Under the Chin

Microliposuction can be performed under the chin to get rid of the stubborn “turkey neck” fat that blunts the neckline from the front and profile views. The entire procedure can usually be performed through a tiny 2-3mm incision hidden in the natural skin crease under the chin where most people already have a scar from childhood trips and falls. The recovery is quick and easy, and short of wearing a compression strap at nighttime for a few fews, you can be back to work 2-3 days after the procedure.

#2. Jowls

Heavy jowls are excellent candidates for micro-liposuction, but thin jowls usually require some sort of skin-tightening procedure to fix. Thick, heavy jowls most likely have an element of extra fat that can be liposuctioned out using specially designed microliposuction cannulas, and then the fat can also be used to recontour the grooves around the jowls for additional smoothing.

#3. Knees

Excess fat above the knees can be treated with microliposuction, but the main benefit here is the skin tightening that occurs as a result of the collagen-stimulating healing response that is generated after the procedure. Some mild bruising and tenderness is possible for a few days, but overall the procedure and the recovery are relatively straightforward and easy.

#4. Cankles

Excess fat around the ankle can blunt the attractive curves of the lower leg, and microlipo can be a great option in this delicate area. The ankles are a particularly tricky area to sculpt and require a skilled surgical touch, along with very special equipment designed for this type of procedure. Compression stockings are necessary for a few weeks after surgery, but the initial results are visible in just a few days.

earlobe repair procedure. fix a torn earlobe

The most common reason for earlobe repair is a gradual weakening of the earlobe tissue caused by heavy earrings. It can also be caused by catching your earring on something and forcefully tearing the lobe, but showing off heavy bling is the most likely culprit.

The good news is that torn and damaged earlobes can be repaired. Earlobe repair is a fairly pain-free procedure that can be done under local anesthesia in the office setting. For most patients, it takes about an hour, and you can go back to work the same day if necessary (although we do recommend that you do take the day of the procedure off so you can apply some ice).

The damaged section of the earlobe is excised, and the remaining healthy tissue is meticulously repaired with very delicate stitches on the inside and out. The stitches are so small that most people would not notice anything out of the ordinary about your repaired lobes when you go back to work, and they don’t require any special care other than keeping them clean with your normal face wash. The outside sutures are removed on the 5th or 6th day after the procedure, and the inside stitches dissolve after earlobe tissue is healed. The incision does leave a small, but very inconspicuous, scar that will be hidden almost completely after the ear is re-pierced. The scar will be red/pink for several weeks after the procedure, and then will gradually fade to an almost invisible thin line.

A meticulous repair involving the internal and external tissues of the lobe is the key to a strong, long-lasting repair, so be cautious about who performs your procedure. The surgeon should be comfortable with earlobe surgery, and he or she should be willing to take their time to ensure an adequate repair. Otherwise, the lobe will simple tear through again as soon as you start to wear earrings.

Women can re-pierce their ears and wear light earrings about 8 weeks after surgery, but clips on earrings can be worn before then.
