How soon can I workout after gynecomastia surgery?

Many of the teenage boys and men who develop gynecomastia, are very self-conscious about the condition, and this accounts for the increasing popularity of gynecomastia surgery. This is especially true of men who like to workout or take part in sporting activities. Not surprisingly one of the questions they often ask about surgery is -‘How soon can I workout after gynecomastia surgery.’

Gynecomastia refers to enlarged breasts in males. The problem is often hormone related, but may also be caused by genetics, obesity, or certain types of medications.

Gynecomastia Surgery
Gynecomastia surgery also known as male reduction surgery, is the most effective method for treating enlarged male breasts. Removing the excess glandular tissue and fat gives the breasts more masculine contours. Liposuction is typically used to get rid of the excess fat. More severe cases may require surgical excision to remove the extra glandular tissue.

How soon can you work out after surgery?
Patients can expect to experience swelling and bruising post-surgery, and this may take up to 3 weeks to resolve. In order to ensure that the chest gets sufficient time to heal, patients are advised to avoid any type of exercise for at least 3 weeks. After that time non-impact lower body exercises can be resumed.

This timeline won’t be the same for everyone, as it depends on the extent of the operation. It is therefore important to pay attention to your body, as it will let you know if you are doing too much too soon. Also, be sure to follow the post-op instructions of your surgeon.

When can I wash my hair after FUE hair transplant?

Losing your hair can be a traumatic experience, but if you’re battling baldness,hair transplantation can produce some remarkable results for you. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is an advanced technique that has been helping millions regain their hair, and their confidence.  One of the questions most frequently asked about the procedure is –When can I wash my hair after FUE hair transplant.

What is FUE?
FUE is a minimally invasive hair transplant technique.  For this procedure, the hair is harvested from the back of the head, and is thenre-inserted into the balding area where it’s needed.  The follicular unit of hair usually consists of one to four hairs. FUE is a medical procedure that has a fast recovery time, because no stitches are required, and there is no scarring.

When can you wash your hair after FUE?
The recommendations differ regarding when to wash your hair after a FUE hair transplant, but they generally advise against washing until the grafts are fully healed. This takes about 1-2 weeks for most people.

Some doctors recommend dabbing the area with a surgical sponge and soapy water. Others suggest washing the hair using a gentle shampoo and cup to lightly rinse the hair in the first few days, in order to avoid disrupting the grafts, or damaging the donor area.

The method of post-op care depends on several factors including the specific needs of each patient,as well as with their hair type and density.

If you’d like to find out more about the FUE hair transplant technique, contact the Langdon Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, Guilford, CT.  Call 844-551-9880 today, to schedule a consultation with board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon.

How long is the recovery time for a full body lift?

Have you undergone dramatic weight loss but don’t feel contented, because of all the loose skin that’s on your body. Body lift surgery can give you the extra help you need to feel comfortable in your skin. It will contour your body and restore a toned appearance. But just how long is recovery time for a full body lift.

Body lift surgery
Body lift surgery is typically recommended after massive weight loss, because theexcess skin won’t snap back into shape, so surgery is the only way to tighten the skin. Redundant skin is most often found on the abdomen, breasts, hips, back, and upper arms. A full body lift is designed to contour areas on the upper and lower body.

A circumferential incision that extends around the entire area of the lower torso is generally required for surgery, to remove excess skin around the abdomen and flanks.  Other procedures such as an arm lift are done depending on the areas where the loose skin is concentrated. During the procedure the surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat, and tighten the underlying muscles, in order to tone and contour the body.

How long is the recovery?
It takes about 2 weeks to recover from a full body lift. Most patients with a desk job are able to return to work after this time, but heavy lifting should be avoided for another 4-6 weeks.

Body lift surgery is available in Orange County, CA at Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine. Call(949) 701-4454  today and schedule a consultation with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kyle Song. During your initial consultationDr. Song will discuss your cosmetic goals, so that surgery can be tailored to your specific needs.

medical devices that are reshaping healthcare

How will going paperless aid my healthcare practice services?

Many healthcare practices suffer from paper inefficiencies that increase operating costs, and negatively impact the patient experience. That’s why there’s been a shift to paperless healthcare in the last few years. While there are obvious benefits, some medical professionals and institutions are still wondering – How will going paperless aid my healthcare practice services?

What is a paperless healthcare practice?
A paperless healthcare practice uses technological innovations such as medical PCs, to access information quickly, and enhance the quality of care to patients.

A paperless healthcare practice can provide several benefits. It can help to:

  • Streamline processes and improve efficiency, thereby freeing up physicians to spend more time with patients.With an electronic record system,there is a significant reduction in the amount of time it takes to update patient records. In fact, the update can be done while the patient is being seen.
  • Reduce administrative costs and expenses. The costs related to the storage and management of paper records can add up. Opting for an electronic record system will therefore lead to a reduction in expenses, as there will be less staff needed to file documents or update records.
  • Improve the quality of care.Sending and receiving all patient information in a digital format gives medical professionals the ability to deal with patients in a more efficient manner. Electronic recording of data improves the accuracy of data, as it reduces errors and omissions.

Going paperless often requires purchasing new devices and software, and upgrading hardware. That’s where Onyx Healthcare USA, Inc comes in. We provide top quality medical PC solutions for healthcare practices, and medical device companies.

If you’d like to find out more about how Onyx Healthcare can help you achieve your goal of a paperless medical practice, call714-792-0774today for a consultation.

How is Ultherapy different from other skin tightening treatments?

As more men and women look for ways to reverse skin laxity, non-invasive skin tightening treatments have become as popular as ever. There are several non-surgical skin tightening treatments now being widely performed,because they require no anesthesia, and no downtime, and Ultherapy is considered one of the best. But how is Ultherapy different from other skin tightening options.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a skin enhancement system that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to tone and tighten the skin, creating natural, long lasting results. Ultherapy is safe for use on the face, neck, and chest. It is a quick and virtually painless procedure that takes 30 -90 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated.

The Ultherapy device delivers RF energyto the deep layers of the skin, but does not affect the outer skin layers. The heat from the RF waves also helps to stimulate the collagen below the skin, giving it a plumper appearance.

Why is Ultherapy different
Its use of ultrasound imaging is one reason why Ultherapy is different from other skin tightening treatments. Ultrasound imaging utilizes sound waves to create a visual of the underlying tissue. This allows the medical practitioner to place the energy in the areas of the skin where it will be most beneficial, thereby making treatment very precise.

Ultherapy also creates long lasting results, because it affects the deep layers of the skin where new collagen and elastin forms. Because of this the results achieved look natural, and last a long time.

Are you looking for an effective way to get firmer skin without surgery? Call (949) 701-4454  to contact us at Song Plastic Surgery, Irvine, CA to find out if Ultherapy is the right skin tightening treatment for you.
