Male Breast Reduction: Men Can Have Boobs Too!

Who can forget the iconic Seinfeld episode when Kramer invents “the Bro,” a supportive undergarment for men with enlarged breasts? He tries to help George’s father, Frank Costanza, deal with the discomfort of his “man boobs” by designing the man’s version of a bra. Unfortunately, Kramer and Frank can’t sell their idea, and it never takes off.

That plot in the Seinfeld episode is full of one-liners and goofy situations, which makes for funny television.

But for those men who suffer in real life from enlarged breasts, they’re not laughing.

In fact, “man boobs” will affect at least 30% of males in their lifetimes, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. This condition’s official name is gynecomastia. Those who suffer from it experience anxiety, psychosocial discomfort, and fear of breast cancer.

Treating gynecomastia becomes paramount to give patients overall health, wellbeing, and peace of mind. A male breast reduction procedure uses a combination of liposuction and direct excision to reduce the fat and glandular tissue from the breast area, producing a natural, more masculine chest.

What to Expect With Male Breast Reduction

The male breast reduction surgery requires general or local anesthesia — depending on the extent of your reduction — and is done on an outpatient basis. Once the excess tissue is reduced, you will be left with a flatter, firmer chest contour. The procedure is both effective and long-lasting in getting rid of your “man boobs.”

Male breast reduction side effects include swelling and discomfort following surgery, which can be controlled with prescription pain medication. You’ll be given an elastic pressure garment that you’ll need to wear for about two weeks following surgery to help reduce the swelling. Once your stitches are reduced (after two weeks), you can resume normal activities. However, strenuous exercise, sexual activity, or anything else that may risk a blow to the chest should be avoided. 

Male breast reduction surgery may be right for you if:

  • You are healthy
  • Your weight is stable and relatively normal
  • Your breast development has stabilized
  • You have realistic expectations

Don’t suffer any longer with “man boobs”! The condition isn’t funny, and we can help you get the chest you want to see when you look in the mirror. Male breast reduction surgery works, making you more confident at the beach, in the locker room, or in the bedroom.

Three Key Things to Know About Butt Augmentation

Butt Augmentation

If you’d like to improve the appearance of your backside, a buttock augmentation is a popular choice.

As you research this procedure, consider these three key things to know about butt augmentation.

  1. Options for a Butt Augmentation

We offer two options for butt augmentation. Both are safe and effective, but our team can help advise you on which one will best suit your unique situation and help achieve your goals.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift – A procedure that does not require implants but uses fat from other areas of your body. During this procedure, the doctor transfers your body fat to lift the buttocks and create your desired shape.

    In general, you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift if:

    • You want a buttock augmentation without implants
    • You have adequate fat stores in other areas to harvest for injection into the buttocks
    • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks
  • Butt Implants – This procedure starts with the creation of a well-hidden incision, typically in the center of the buttocks crease (the sacrum). A pocket is then formed above, below, or within the gluteal muscle. One of our surgeons then carefully places the implant within the pocket before completing the procedure by closing the incision with sutures.

    In general, you are a good candidate for butt implants if:

  • You want to increase the fullness, roundness, and projection of your buttocks.
  • You want to improve the balance of your figure.
  • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks.
  1. Your Shape Will Change

Even though butt implants produce immediate results, a Brazilian Butt Lift will take six months to a year for the fat transfers to settle.

Also, keep in mind that changes in weight could also affect your butt’s appearance and shape. It’s best to be at your goal weight before getting a Brazilian Butt Lift.

  1. Be Prepared for Post-Procedure Downtime

Recovery for either procedure is important and time-intensive. Even though you may be up and walking within a couple of days after a butt augmentation procedure, you will not be allowed to put any pressure on the buttocks for several weeks. This makes sitting, lying, and sleeping challenging.

During recovery, expect these restrictions:

  • You will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least 8 weeks after surgery. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side.
  • You will be given a compression garment to treat the areas where the liposuction was performed. You will need to wear this garment for at least 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Most patients will be allowed to resume all normal activities 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Even after the first 8 weeks of recovery, patients should still avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time and should use a cushion when sitting.
  • Be patient. After surgery, you’ll see a lot of bruising and swelling. It could take as long as 6 months before your body will reveal the final result. That’s all part of the healing process.

You, of course, should confirm your post-operation recovery plan with your doctor, but know going into surgery that the healing period may be long.

How to Dramatically Change Your Appearance with Cosmetic Surgery

Whether you’re dissatisfied with the size or shape of your nose or the size of your breasts, or diet and exercise aren’t making the muffin top budge, cosmetic surgery may be the next step for you. The truth is that if you aren’t happy with what you see in the mirror, your self-esteem takes a beating with every glance.

You can dramatically change your appearance with cosmetic surgery. Depending upon your specific situation, you can either add or take away to your physique to achieve the look of your dreams. Cosmetic surgery patients routinely report an increase in confidence and overall well-being once their “outside” matches what they feel on the inside.

As cosmetic surgical procedures have evolved over the years, they have become less and less invasive while producing more natural results. Today, many procedures are affordable yet effective, and they can dramatically change your appearance.

Erase the Years and Look Younger       

Patients have always wanted to stop the advance of time and the toll it takes on our skin. Popular age-defying procedures, such as injectables, lasers, and fillers, offer dramatic results, giving older skin a youthful glow. There’s nothing more exciting than looking 5, 10, or 15 years younger! 

These types of procedures are typically quick, non-surgical, have little recovery time, and offer incredible and drastic results.

According to Allure magazine, “injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing can be quick, lunchtime procedures, often with immediately visible effects and limited downtime. Botox and fillers have become so mainstream that four-fifths of all treatments performed by facial surgeons in 2018 were cosmetic, non-surgical procedures.”

Blast the Fat with Liposuction

No matter how much we diet and exercise, sometimes there’s stubborn fat that just won’t budge. For those areas that torment you, you may want to consider the ever-popular and super-effective liposuction.

Liposuction still reigns supreme when it comes to medical intervention for fat elimination. This

surgery has come a long way in the past 20 years with shorter recovery times and improved doctor techniques to reduce bruising and swelling. It’s not uncommon for a patient to have liposuction on one specific area (most commonly, the thighs, stomach, or buttocks) in the afternoon and go back to work the same week.

For a complete updated look and total-body makeover, many patients choose to have liposuction performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as a facelift, breast reduction, or “tummy tuck.”

Not Born With It? No Problem!   

Often, we’re troubled by something in our appearance that stems from a part of our physique that’s not easily changed: small breasts, a crooked nose, or a flat butt.

Having a procedure to reform, enhance, enlarge, or correct aspects of your appearance will have a dramatic result. No matter what your concern, we can help! We offer:

  • Brazilian Butt Lift – a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without using implants
  • Buttock Implant – enhances the appearance, shape, and size of the buttocks using implants.
  • Breast Augmentation – uses breast implants to create fuller breasts.
  • Breast Lift – raises and firms breasts by removing surplus skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the breasts.
  • Rhinoplasty – corrects cosmetic problems with the nose, like a bump or a hook, as well as structural issues, like difficulty breathing due to a deviated septum.

Get Dramatic Results with Cosmetic Surgery

A “new you” is not far away. Cosmetic surgery offers a variety of options for creating a dramatic shift in your appearance and your self-confidence.

Not sure what is right for you? We’d love to help you find the correct procedure that will work well for you. We offer every patient a complimentary consultation before they undergo any procedure.

What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

As if aging didn’t give us enough to worry about with wrinkled, sagging skin, there’s yet one other area that’s affected as we advance in years: the vagina. Muscles become more relaxed as we age, which causes looseness and dryness.

Pregnancy and childbirth can further contribute to vaginal problems, including stretched tissues and bladder problems. When women approach menopause, estrogen levels drop, and this further exacerbates vaginal atrophy.

These problems can have profound effects on a woman’s quality of life. An irritated and dry vagina can impede sexual pleasure and intimacy. Overall discomfort can lead to chafing, and mild urinary incontinence can be inconvenient and embarrassing.

The good news is that help is available for women who are struggling with these vaginal issues.

Laser vaginal rejuvenation is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, which revitalizes and reconditions the vagina by reconstructing damaged muscles and tissues of the vaginal cavity.

RejuVAnate is a novel, painless pulsed CO2 laser vaginal rejuvenation treatment to vaginal tissues delivered through a special hand piece in a procedure that takes less than 15 minutes. Downtime is minimal; patients must only have vaginal “rest” for the three days after the procedure.

How RejuVAnate Works

RejuVAnate works via pulses of laser energy into the collagen layer of the vaginal mucous membrane. Concentrated thermal heating leads to collagen and elastin “shrinkage” and secondary regeneration, producing a tightening of the vaginal tissues. These CO2 laser treatments are delivered in a series of three spaced four weeks apart.

The initial shrinkage and secondary regeneration produce improved pressure on the “G-Spot” and the clitoris. Tightening also occurs along the base of the overlying bladder, which improves minor urinary incontinence.

The result of the treatment is the complete remodeling of the vaginal mucosa, in addition to the re-establishment of robust, more “youthful” vaginal tissue embedded with thick and long collagen fibers. Patients report a noticeable tightening of the entire vaginal canal for increased friction and pleasure during sexual intimacy.

Vaginal rejuvenation helps:

  • Vulvovaginal Atrophy (painful intercourse, dryness, itching/irritation)
  • Vaginal laxity
  • Mild urinary incontinence or mild overactive bladder

Vaginal rejuvenation may be right for you if you have minimal to moderate vaginal looseness or laxity not severe enough to need a complete surgical repair but bothersome enough (less “grip,” too much “droop”) to diminish sexual pleasure and sometimes lead to modest urinary incontinence.

Injectables and Dermal Fillers 

Injectables and dermal fillers are the perfect options for men and women looking to correct wrinkles or folds and restore the contours and smoothness of the face. Roughly one million people annually choose injectables or dermal fillers because of their affordable cost and easy recovery, without extensive surgery.

  • Botox or Dysport (for larger areas) injectables work by relaxing the facial muscles to remove wrinkles on the forehead, around the corners of eyes, or on other areas of the face.
  • Juvederm and Restylane are fillers that provide natural-looking results by smoothing wrinkles and folds, or adding subtle enhancements and smoothing lines.
  • Voluma, Kybella, and Bellafill are used to correct specific areas of the face, including the nose, below the chin, and for the “laugh lines.”

Non-Surgical Facelift 

A non-surgical facelift is an excellent option for patients wanting the benefit of a facelift without any incisions. Most people are familiar with a traditional facelift, which helps to correct facial sagging, reduces wrinkles/fine lines, and provides an improved, more youthful appearance.

A Non-Surgical Facelift is great because it uses the body’s own existing stem cells found in fat tissue to help regenerate tissue. Benefits also include:

  • a more predictable outcome
  • a more cost-effective procedure
  • the avoidance of synthetic fillers
  • filling of furrows and wrinkles 
  • volumetric lifting effect in the face and breasts area
  • lasting correction of atrophic scars

Eye Lid Surgery… An Eye-Opening Experience

You’ve tried all the makeup hacks to make your “hooded eyes” look more prominent, but they don’t seem to work. 

You continuously hear you look tired, and now you’ve also noticed problems with your vision.

It may be time for eyelid surgery to remove excess skin, lift and tighten the remaining skin, and give you a real eye-opening experience. 

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure among Americans. The latest statistics reported in Dermatology Times named eyelid surgery the fourth most popular procedure with 206,000 operations performed in 2018. 

Exposure to the sun and genetic predisposition can contribute to sagging skin around the eyes, and aging and gravity take their toll on the delicate eyelid area, too. It wrinkles and creases, causing deep lines, puffiness, sagging and drooping.

From a cosmetic standpoint, droopy eyelids can cause you to look older and more tired, but many people get eyelid surgery for health and wellness reasons. The excess skin can impair your vision.

What to Expect During Eyelid Surgery

Depending upon the extent of the surgery, the procedure will take approximately one to two hours. It can be done under general anesthesia with the patient asleep, or under local anesthesia in which the area is numb, and the patient remains awake.

The surgeon follows the eyelid’s natural lines and creases, making very fine incisions from the inner to the outer edge of the eyelid. On the upper eyelid, the incision is in the fold of the lid. On the lower eyelid, the incision is made directly below the eyelash or, in selected cases, inside the eyelid.

Excess fat and skin will are removed from the underlying compartments. The amount of fat excised is determined by the degree of protrusion of fat when gentle pressure is applied to the area. Small sutures are used to close the incision, and ointments and dressings may be applied. Since the sutures are in the eyelid’s natural creases, the scars are barely noticeable.  

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

If you don’t like the look of your eyelids or you’re having problems with your vision that may be caused by sagging skin on the eyelids, blepharoplasty may be a great next step. As long as you are in good health, a non-smoker, and do not have any serious eye conditions, you should be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

The best way to find out if eyelid surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our staff. We’ll evaluate your unique situation and help you decide the best course of action for your concerns or goals.

Please call 615-538-0399 or contact us today, and a member of our helpful staff would be happy to assist you in setting up your consultation.

5 Reasons to Consider a Nose Job

Do you struggle with chronic congestion?

Is it hard to breathe easily?

Do you wish that your nose was smaller? Straighter?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty or a “nose job.”

People opt for a nose job for a variety of reasons, some of which are primarily medical and others are primarily cosmetic.

Read on to find out 5 reasons to consider a nose job as you research if rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you.

1.You have a deviated septum.

The septum is a wall of cartilage between the two nostrils and divides the nasal cavity in half. An ideal septum is centered in the nose and creates an even passageway on both the left and right side. A deviated septum, which occurs when the septum shifts away from the midline, can cause cosmetic problems, as well as issues with breathing.

Rhinoplasty can help correct this. You’ll both look better and feel better as correcting a deviated septum will restore visual symmetry and improve breathing.

2.You’ve injured your nose.

Following an accident or trauma that causes facial injury, your nose may not heal properly. The shape may be altered, or you may have trouble breathing.

Rhinoplasty, in this case, may serve two purposes: to return your appearance to your pre-accident look and to restore health.

3. You have a crooked or larger nose, a bump, a hook, or another unwanted characteristic.

Simply put, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, a nose job can help! If you’d like a nose that’s slimmer, smoother, or smaller, then you may be a great candidate for rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty can correct all sorts of cosmetic concerns, such as a bump, a hook, a wide nose, a thick or bulbous tip, nostril size and position, nasal asymmetry, and nose size in relation to face size and shape.

4.You’ve had facial or nasal surgery for an unrelated issue (such as skin cancer removal)

A nose job was never on your radar—until now.

If you’ve had surgery to your face, nose, or upper lip for a different reason (such as skin cancer removal), the appearance and function of your nose could be impacted. Rhinoplasty can be critical in reshaping or reconstructing the nose and restoring both your appearance and health completely following these types of procedures.

5. You’re just not happy with your nose and the way it appears on your face

A primary goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a revised version of a nose that beautifully complements each patient’s unique facial features and beauty. If you’re looking for a natural update that will enhance your overall appearance, a nose job may be the perfect procedure for you.

Schedule a Consultation to Find Out If You are a Candidate for Rhinoplasty

Our board-certified physicians and staff at Marvel Cosmetic Surgery would love to answer all of your questions about rhinoplasty. If any of the reasons listed above describes your situation, rhinoplasty may be the answer.

What is the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss?

You’re likely familiar with the feeling of overeating: your pants are tight, you feel “stuffed,” and the thought of putting one more bite in your mouth is inconceivable.

The Obalon procedure for weight loss works a lot like Thanksgiving dinner or an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet does. The Obalon weight loss system helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less.

The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the doctor will inflate the balloon. In the clinical study after placement. Most patients return to normal activities with no downtime.

Benefits of the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss

Among the ever-popular effective, low-risk, and minimally invasive weight loss solutions, Obalon stands out as a proven success. Patients with the Obalon Balloon System and diet and exercise lost approximately twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.

Some other benefits of the Obalon procedure include:

  • The Obalon Balloon System helps jump-start your weight loss journey for long-term results.
  • Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at one year (six months post-removal) when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
  • Less than 1% of adverse events were severe or serious in nature (see safety information).

  • Less expensive than weight loss surgery

Brazilian Butt Lift Recovery Tips

BBL-Nashville

As with any surgery, the recovery period for a Brazilian Butt Lift is an important time for your healing to ensure the final results meet your expectations.

A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) takes fat from other areas of the body (often the stomach, hips, and thighs) and transfers it to the buttocks. After the surgery, not only will the buttocks area be sore, but the areas from which the fat was taken may also be sore. Typically, the pain will be minimal, will lessen quickly, and will be easily managed with medication.

The more challenging aspect of recovery is the restrictions placed on using the buttocks area. Sitting, sleeping, and walking must all be modified in order to allow the buttocks to heal.

We offer these Brazilian Butt Lift recovery tips to help you better anticipate what you can expect following your cosmetic procedure:

  • Most patients will be up and walking within 1-2 days after the procedure. You may resume light activities within 1 week after surgery.
  • You will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least 8 weeks after surgery. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side.
  • You will be given a compression garment to treat the areas where the liposuction was performed. You will need to wear this garment for at least 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Most patients will be allowed to resume all normal activities 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Even after the first 8 weeks of recovery, patients should still avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time and should use a cushion when sitting.
  • Be patient. After surgery, you’ll see a lot of bruising and swelling. It could take as long as 6 months before your body will reveal the final result. That’s all part of the healing process.

It’s also helpful to keep in mind some important Do’s and Don’ts following your BBL procedure.

Do:

  • Follow your doctor’s instructions faithfully, including obeying restrictions on sitting and lying on your buttocks, and take all prescribed medications.
  • Walk and stretch your legs gently. This will ensure proper circulation and help prevent blood clots following surgery.
  • Wear your compression garment at all times except during showering.

Do Not:

  • Sit or lie on your buttocks up to 8 weeks following surgery (confirm specific requirements with your doctor).
  • Put any stress on the area of the buttocks that received fat transplants; this includes sitting or lying on the area or engaging in any strenuous activity (for up to 8 weeks after surgery, to be confirmed with your doctor).

Schedule Your Consultation for a Brazilian Butt Lift Today        

Whether it’s due to aging, weight loss, heredity, or other reasons, sagging tissue on the buttocks can be a cause of self-consciousness for many women. A Brazilian Butt Lift is a great option for many patients who want to improve the appearance of the buttocks without implants.

Patients should also be fully educated on what to expect during the BBL recovery period. Our board certified cosmetic surgeons and the rest of our team can answer any questions you may have about recovering from a BBL and help you achieve the look you want.

Call our offices today at 615-861-8174 to book a consultation and find out more about how a Brazilian Butt Lift can help you accomplish your goals.

Tips for Choosing the Right Size Breast Implants

Once you decide to move forward with breast implant surgery, the next important decision is which size implants you should choose. It’s important that you weigh your options carefully with counsel from your cosmetic surgeon and trusted advisors.

As you think about your options, consider these tips for choosing the right size breast implants.

How to Choose the Right Size Breast Implants

  • Think about your physique. Consider your frame, height, weight, and shoulder and hip width. What size implant will best complement your body? Larger implants may be overwhelming on a thinner, more petite woman, while a taller woman who carries more weight could also accommodate larger breasts.
  • Consider your wardrobe. Want more cleavage for low-cut dresses? Larger implants may be for you. Concerned about maintaining professionalism and not calling too much attention to your new bust size? You may opt for smaller implants.
  • Take them for a test drive. Your cosmetic surgeon should have a way for you to give different implants a trial run. At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we offer silicone breast implant “sizers” that you can try on during your consultation appointment.
  • Bigger is not necessarily better. Don’t get too attached to wanting a certain cup size. You may think that you need a “D” or “DD” cup, but ultimately, you need to make a size decision based upon what’s best for your body, and your goals, regardless of size on the bra band.
  • Listen to others. Your cosmetic surgeon has a great deal of experience with placing the appropriate size implants in their patients. They will help you evaluate all of your options and will consider important aspects, such as the amount and quality of the surrounding breast tissue. Your surgeon’s goal is to provide wise counsel that will result in a natural look that suits your appearance and lifestyle. You may also want to bring a partner or trusted friend to your consultations to help you evaluate implant size.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, our staff is committed to helping each person choose the right size breast implant that best suits the client.

If you’re ready for Breast Augmentation, contact us now to schedule your consultation. Call us today at 615-538-0399, and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions about finding the right size implants for you.
