WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A BREAST LIFT?

You may be an ideal candidate for a breast lift if you are in overall good health and have low-hanging breasts. In many cases, women visit PS Contouring thinking breast augmentation is their best option, but after a physical exam and discussing their needs with a Specialist, typically a breast lift is the better choice. Breasts that have lost elasticity typically need a lift to reduce skin looseness and bring the breasts to a higher position on the chest wall. If you have nipples that droop downward and your breasts look elongated, a breast lift can dramatically help their appearance.

BREAST LIFT FAQS

Do I need a breast lift or breast implants?
Whether you should get a breast lift, implants, or both depends on your unique concerns and goals. In many patients, a breast lift will enhance the form and fullness of your breasts without implants. PS Contouring will assess your physical condition and listen to your goals in your consultation, then make a decision whether you should get a lift.

Will my nipples be moved?
Generally, the nipple-areola complex will be moved up during a breast lift. If your areolas are excessively large or stretched, then they may be naturally reduced as the fatty tissue in the breast is reduced. This can be discussed during your appointment for your breast lift.

How long will my results last?
With good care following non-surgery, your results should last for several years. Your breasts will still age normally so you might start to see loose and sagging skin over time. Factors, like significant weight gain or loss, can alter your results; therefore, it's best to maintain a steady weight after your breast lift. Pregnancy or breastfeeding after a breast lift may also alter your results, which is why PS Contouring suggests patients wait until they are done having kids to get a breast lift.

Can a breast lift fix asymmetry?
A lift can improve asymmetry in your breasts if they're different in size, firmness, or level of sagging. PS Contouring will assess the appearance and physical condition of your breasts during your consultation and discuss how a lift will be able to help you. In your non-surgery, we will adjust the suction so your breasts are equal in size and position for symmetry.

Pseudo-gynecomastia Augmentation

WHAT IS Pseudo-gynecomastia?

Abnormal increase of male breast tissue which results in large breast is called gynecomastia. This can occur in newborns, boys going through puberty or even with older men due to the change of hormone levels.

The increased breast tissue occurs when there’s a lower level of testosterone (male hormone) compared to estrogen.  This imbalance can be caused by many things like some medication, alcohol, kidney failure and so on.

In many cases, this condition doesn’t cause any health problems, however, in severe cases, where the breast tissue is abnormally large, it can cause pain and increase sensitivity of the tissue. In case when gynecomastia doesn’t resolve on its own, surgery is required.

Even though pseudo-gynecomastia creates the same breast tissue enlargement as gynecomastia, the enlargement is result of excess fat buildup. In this instance, the simplest solution is weight loss and a good exercise routine that will focus on the chest muscles.

Treatment without surgery

Pseudo-gynecomastia is man boobs that are caused by fat alone. True gynecomastia is a combination of fat and breast tissue. True gynecomastia must be treated by a combination of surgical excision of the breast tissue with liposuction of the fat. Many surgeons try unsuccessfully to remove true gynecomastia with liposuction alone causing revision surgery for many men.

For the man with pseudo-gynecomastia, liposuction can give great results and is a much less invasive procedure than surgical excision.

Now, PS Contouring has an even less invasive procedure than liposuction for pseudo-gynecomastia, in fact, it is a non-surgical procedure that does not involve needles, scalpels, scars or even any downtime!

Available now at PS Contouring, Laser Liposuction is a process where an applicator sucks an area of fat and applies low level laser. The fat cells are destroyed by the laser without harming the surrounding muscles and tissue and then the dead fat cells are eliminated from the body naturally. The entire process lasts about an hour and many patients read a book, work on laptops or take a nap.

 

Patients state that the treatment is not painful, but initially they feel pressure and coldness from the plates. The results may be evident immediately and will continue for the next 3-5 days as the body naturally releases the fat.

WHAT IS GYNECOMASTIA NON SURGERY?

PSEUDOGYNECOMASTIA NON SURGERY FAQS

What causes gynecomastia?
Pseudogynecomastia develops in men when there is a disruption in hormone balance and causes excess fatty tissue in the breast area. Typically, pseudo-gynecomastia is connected to the long-term use of anabolic steroids or androgens. It may also be caused by excess fat, weight gain and loss.

How can I tell if I have gynecomastia?
Pseudo-Gynecomastia occurs in men when there is an overgrowth of breast fatty tissue in the chest. PS Contouring can perform an examination to identify the fat.

Can Pseudo-gynecomastia be treated with exercise or pills?
The most effective treatment for gynecomastia is male breast reduction surgery. Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn't approved any medications for the treatment of gynecomastia. Although they are not approved for gynecomastia, some breast cancer medications (Tamoxifen or Raloxifene) might give you minimal improvements. Upper body weight training to build the pectoral muscles cannot reduce the excess breast tissue and could make the breasts appear larger.
