Aesthetic surgery for female organ has been gaining popularity in recent years.  Many female patients request improvement in appearance of the genital area, which may also enhance the sexuality as well. Here’s the latest that we offer: Labial puff - As you age, the labia majora (outer lips) may lose the tone and become wrinkled.  Pumping up the labia majora will make the area look plump and full, more youthful, and healthy.  This can be done by simply injecting fillers to the labia, although temporary.  For more permanent solution, you may consider fat injection.  Labia plasty ...

Men and plastic Surgery   Liposuction and body contouring The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen and a narrow hip-thigh area. However, as men age, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, the flanks ("love handles"), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia) and along the chin and neck. Men sometimes seek liposuction to remove these fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.In many cases, liposuction alone can effectively correct these problem areas.

A 48-year-old female self discovered a lump in her left breast. Mammography, and subsequent ultrasound test showed a mass in her left breast. Biopsy revealed malignancy. She consulted with the breast surgeon, and decided to have left mastectomy. She has small breast and wears 34 A cup bra. Because she has small breast, even placement of the implant to the left breast will result in asymmetry of the shape of the breast. To achieve best possible symmetry, I recommended her to have tissue expansion of the left breast and subsequent implant placement and right breast augmentation...

Forehead contouring for the transgender female is one of challenging but rewarding part of the facial feminization.  Forehead contouring is often combined with hairline alteration.  I usually use tissue expander to allow me to bring hairline about an inch. Particularly interesting thing about this procedure is we can shave down the bossing over the brow area aggressively and significantly.  Once we expose the forehead bone, the anterior table of the frontal sinus is removed and then, we do the trimming of the forehead ridge. This trimming extends all the way to the lateral orbital rim (outs...

Since FDA’s announcement in 2019, there was a lot of confusion over breast implant associated anapestic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) but the initial panic appears to subsided now.  Here are what we know about the condition. BIA-ALCL is a rare and treatable type of T-cell lymphoma that can develop around breast implants. It is not a cancer of the breast tissue itself. The lag time between current implant insertion to diagnosis of BIA-ALCL has been from 0.8-27 years, with an average of 9.75 years. No cases of BIA-ALCL have been reported with patients who have only had smooth im...
