Smoking prior to surgery and during recovery can cause serious effects on wound healing. This is because smoking effects the small vessels in the body, resulting in scarring of the small arteries and veins.
During the healing process, more blood needs to flow to areas of surgery. This increased blood flow provides more oxygen and nutrients to healing areas so that wounds will heal faster and more smoothly.
Because smoking can lead to scarring of small blood vessels, smoking causes a limitation of the blood flow. When blood flow is decreased to healing areas, this results in slower he...

I went to see the screening of a short documentary film “Our man in Tokyo (Ballad of Shin Miyata)" at Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, yesterday. Shin Miyata is a chicano music fan/record label producer/music promotor. He became obsessed with the Chicano music in East Los Angeles years ago, and determined to spread the music in Japan. He has brought many musicians from East LA to Japan performing at a numerous venues. It’s an interesting take on a person with remarkable passion to the music of East LA. I realized that Chicano culture and Japanese Am...
What is Capsular Contracture?
Capsular Contracture is the condition where the breast feels firm after breast augmentation. When an implant is placed under the breast, the body forms scar tissue surrounding the implant. This scar tissue is called a “capsule”. Over time, in some patients, the capsule gets thicker and tightens, squeezing the implant and making the breast feel firmer. The case of this condition is not clear, although we suspect multiple factors involved with the condition, including subclinical infection, contamination, hematoma, etc. Statistically, Capsular C...
As a plastic surgeon, knowing that the tissues we are handling have good blood flows (meaning viable and healthy) is extremely important. We have been using clinical evaluation and examination to assess the blood flow at the hospital. Now, there is a powerful technology available at California Hospital where I perform many of reconstructive procedures. I have been asking the hospital administration to get this system for a while, and it is finally available at the hospital since December 2017. This newest system, SPY-PHI is only available at California Hospital Medical Center. Only o...
