The breast lift procedure will remove excess breast skin to address sagging or drooping breasts, lifting them upward, giving them a more youthful look. The nipples can also be repositioned. Depending on the...Read More

There is no question that pregnancy can have a dramatic effect on a woman’s body even after she gives birth and is finished nursing her infant. The breasts will rapidly lose volume once the infant is weaned. Unfortunately, the breasts do not always revert back to their pre-pregnancy size and shape. In addition, the breasts and nipple-areola complex may sag or droop or change in size or volume, or the breast skin may develop stretch marks. This can cause women to feel self-conscious about the...Read More

A breast lift procedure (mastopexy) is designed to lift up sagging, drooping breasts to give them a more youthful and full appearance. Although the procedure can be done in conjunction with a breast reduction or a breast augmentation procedure, the recovery for just a breast lift is generally shorter than for either of the other two procedures alone.

When it comes to weight loss, the first areas of the body to gain weight (such as the abdomen and thighs) are often the last areas to respond to diet and exercise. Conversely, the last areas of the body to gain weight often respond well to weight loss methods. This is why it is not uncommon for women to lose weight in their breasts before they start to see any change in love handles or thighs.

Over time, the breasts may sag, and stretch marks may develop. Those women who have...Read More

The origins of liposuction can be traced back to the 1920s, when French surgeon Charles Dujarier removed fat from the leg of a ballerina. Fortunately, the procedure has come a very long way since then. In the 1970s, two doctors working in Italy invented the cannula, which is the thin metal tube through which body fat is removed. In the 1980s, another French surgeon, Yves-Gerard Illouz, refined the technique even further by injecting fluid into the fat tissue, thereby breaking it up and...Read More

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for men. It...Read More
