Have you ever gotten all dressed up in something sleeveless and noticed just before leaving the house that you have some strange bit of fat seeping out around your breasts, kinda reaching back toward your armpit? It’s known as the "bra bulge." Sometimes called a side boob or armpit fat. None of the names are…Read More
Occasionally a patient will tell me that she’s nervous about getting breast implants because she hasn't yet had children, and is afraid that breast implants might keep her from breastfeeding in the future.

Based on a twin study of 186 pairs of identical twins who…Read More
According to a report from the UK, post-menopause cosmetic treatments are on the increase. At first, this hardly seems newsworthy, but it’s actually of note that plastic surgery procedures, originally the realm of older patients who wanted to turn back the hands of time with a face lift, have increasingly become the domain of younger…Read More
An entrepreneur in South Florida has taken a supportive device often worn by patients after face lift surgery—a face bra, essentially—as an alternative to a face lift. The website claims that this is an effective alternative to surgery to create a more youthful visage. The website says the device will “smooth away wrinkles, lift sagging jowls…Read More
