Gynecomastia – Liposculpting Technique

Gynecomastia Dr. Clayton Moliver of Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery discusses a new gynecomastia surgery technique using a liposculpting cannula. It has resulted in less complications post operatively and gives a more natural contour of the chest. When using this technique patients have less downtime and can usually return to work within 1 week. This technique has transformed our practice and is changing the way we do gynecomastia surgery.

Symmastia is a Rare, but Fixable Complication of Breast Augmentation

In very rare instances, Symmastia can occur as a defect of breast augmentation surgery. When implants are inserted too close to the midline of the body, it causes a lifting of the skin away from the chest, creating an unattractive connected appearance sometimes referred to as “breadloafing.” Symmastia can also occur as a rare congenital defect in which soft tissue connects, or webs, both breasts together at the sternum (breast bone). Symmastia seems to be more prevalent among thin women, mostly due to the minimal tissue and/or fat covering the sternum. In our experience, Symmastia generally occurs due to aggressively cutting open the chest muscle during an … Continue reading  

What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a common endocrine disorder in which up to 70% of adolescent boys experience and causes benign enlargement of breast tissue in males. This growth is attributed to disturbances in the endocrine system that leads to an increase in the ratio of estrogen and androgens. Some cases have shown that gynecomastia in puberty will go away without treatment within six months to two years. However, sometimes these do not show up only in puberty but can manifest itself when you least expect it, between the ages of 50 and 80. Mild cases of gynecomastia can be treated with advice … Continue reading  

Male Chest Surgery

Male Chest Surgery – Gynecomastia Gynecomastia is a medical term that originates from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” This condition is far more common than many realize. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of the male population. It may affect only one breast or both. Certain drugs such as anabolic steroids, alcohol, marijuana,  as well as medications containing estrogen may cause enlarged male breasts. Certain medical conditions including cancer and impaired liver function may also be a contributing factor. It is widely accepted that a large percentage of cases derive from unknown sources.

Liposuction Surgery

Is Liposuction Surgery The Right Solution For You? Liposuction Surgery (Abdominoplasty) is one option to treat areas of excess fat in the stomach, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breast enlargement), back, arms and neck. Liposuction is equally effective in both men and women. The basic technique of Liposuction involves the removal of fat via a hollow metal tube (Cannula) that passes through your body’s fatty tissue. One of the most common types of Liposuction involves the aspiration of fat by attaching a pump that generates a vacuum. This is known as Suction Assisted Liposuction … Continue reading  

Otoplasty

Pinned-Back Otoplasty – Softening Ear Appearance Although we can’t control the body features we’re given at birth, we do have options to go back and make adjustments! Otoplasty or Pinned-Back Otoplasty, is a wonderful procedure we use to soften the appearance of large and/or protruding ears … a surgery especially popular for children. Kids can be particularly cruel to those with large ears. That’s why we like to make adjustments and complete procedures before youngsters enter school, usually by the age of five-years-old. Other than helping with their mental and emotional development, when children are young the ear is much … Continue reading  

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Surgical Procedures A large nose might be acceptable on a man, but it can be quite undesired by women. Today we do Rhinoplasty procedures completely different from 20 years ago. Our whole goal is natural. At one time, nose jobs would leave the nose at a pronounced pointed tip on the end. We want to gently shave away the unwanted ridges and bumps to leave a soft shape that people say just looks nice! If you look at models, they don’t necessarily have “tiny” noses. It’s more about clean lines and gentle ridges. During Rhinoplasty surgery, we make a … Continue reading  

Tubular Breasts

Repairing Tubular Breasts If you’re a baby boomer like me, you might remember exclaiming excitement through the word tubular. I know this word was once, or maybe still is, a part of many of your vernaculars — even if you aren’t a surfer dude. You may be surprised, I know I was, to learn this word shows up in many a medical book too. Needless to say, if you are a woman who’s accustomed to this word medically, it takes on a much different meaning. Women with small and narrow breasts that have large, pointed nipples and areolas have a … Continue reading
