It is very common for men to develop excess fat in the breast area at some point in their lives. This condition can also be caused by excess glandular tissue in the breasts, which can affect men from early adolescence well into adulthood. The term “gynecomastia” is often used to describe these effects, and men who experience enlarged breasts can suffer from extreme self-consciousness due to the condition. Whether gynecomastia can be reduced by exercise is a common question, and the answer ultimately depends on the type of gynecomastia present and exactly what is causing the condition.  In cases where the breasts are enlarged because of a collection of excess fat in the area, some individuals may achieve some degree… Continue Reading

In addition, a browlift can be an ideal option in cases where the brow has descended over time, ultimately causing excess weight over the upper eyelids and producing a constantly tired… Continue Reading

In fact, this particular concern is one reason why breast enhancement procedures are some of the most frequently performed treatments in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery—many women simply want an effective way to renew the youthful projection and firmness of their breasts once breast ptosis begins to create self-consciousness about their appearance.  Sagging or “drooping” breasts can be caused by a genetic predisposition to breast ptosis, weight fluctuations, pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, the use of tobacco products, and environmental factors. In many cases, breast ptosis can simply be the result of the loss of tissue elasticity and buildup of excess skin that comes with the natural aging process. Over time, the… Continue Reading

You may have heard of a new product available called the Tummy Tuck® Miracle Slimming System, also known as the Tummy Tuck® Belt. The makers of this product claim that you can slim belly fat by using the Tummy Tuck® Belt system at home for just 10 minutes, twice each day.
