Alternative Breast Enhancement Method
Posted by admin on July 12th, 2014
Having nicely shaped, rounded breasts can make a woman feel sexier and confident; there is no doubt about that. However, with surgical breast enlargement procedures (such as breast augmentation and breast lifts) having a number of alarming side effects, more and more women are turning towards natural breast enhancement.
Post-operative effects of surgical breast augmentation can include a hardening of the breasts; infection; and (sometimes permanent) loss of sensation in the nipples. Implants may also leak or break, causing a change in the shape and feel of the breasts and a great deal of discomfort.
And while the majority of the typical breast augmentation related problems can be treated, it often involves removing the implant (after waiting for any infection to clear) and replacing it with another meaning yet more invasive surgery.
There are many non-surgical products and methods that claim to enlarge, enhance and lift your breasts such as creams; special bras; using weights and even hypnosis.
However, more and more women are now turning to breast enlargement pills as a way of enlarging and enhancing their breasts. Breast enlargement pills can help women to enhance their breasts and gain breast size without resorting to synthetic hormones and risky, invasive surgery.
Most of these pills are herbal and made of natural products. These natural products can also have other benefits. Some claim that they can actually help with other health issues, such as protecting against breast cancer or stopping hot flushes, which is a real bonus!
However, when looking for natural breast enhancement, you should still research all the options thoroughly. For example, the internet has hundreds upon hundreds of websites claiming to sell breast enhancement programs. Many of them are a waste of money and sell products which will never work, so research the different products, look at what the pills contain and the type of development work that has gone in to the products by the manufacturer, then make a decision from there.
Natural breast enhancement is a way to enhance your breasts with none of the risks involved with surgical procedures, but as with all products, needs careful research first.
Plastic Surgery Certification for Breast Augmentation Surgeon
Posted by admin on July 5th, 2014
When choosing to have breast surgery, one of the most important decisions a patient must make is which breast surgeon they will choose to perform their breast surgery. Unfortunately, there are many different medical societies and associations that breast surgeons can belong to.
When researching breast surgeons, many of these societies or associations can look and sound very similar. The fact is, however, there is only one board that is part of the American Board of Medical Specialties.
The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only medical board that certifies plastic surgeons. A certification from the ABPS shows that the breast surgeon has demonstrated their knowledge, as well as completed the necessary amount of education to be certified by the medical board.
In order to be certified by the ABPS, a breast surgeon must meet various requirements for the ABPS, including attaining a medical degree, which can entail over 8 years of education. The breast surgeon must usually perform at least 5 years of residency training at a hospital, which is usually performed as three years of general surgery, and two years of plastic surgery. Finally, the breast surgeon must practice breast surgery independently for at least two additional years.
An ABPS certification also requires that the breast surgeon complete an examination of their specialty. The results of their examination will demonstrate the knowledge and quality of the breast surgeon; this, combined with the other requirements will determine if they will be certified or not.
Also, an ABPS certification is not something that a breast surgeon can receive and then hold indefinitely. After a breast surgeon has been certified, they must be re-certified every so often to demonstrate that they are knowledgeable about all of the latest advancements in their field.
There are many aspects of breast surgery that must be considered when choosing if breast surgery is the right thing to do. Choosing a breast surgeon can be difficult, but one of the things a patient should always make sure of, is that they are ABPS certified.
Overcome the Long Sighted Problem with Laser Eye Surgery
Posted by admin on June 26th, 2014
Hypermetropia is also referred as the long sightedness in which the person is able to see the images at the distance more clearly as compared to the images at the closer view. Scientifically, in this defect the light rays are focused behind the retina that should be correctly formed on the retina.
Hypermetropia is caused either by the flattening of the cornea or the shortening of the eyeball. The defect can also be caused due to the combination of both.
The Laser surgery corrects the Hypermetropia by making the cornea of the eye steeper so as the rays of the light get refocused at the back of the eye. Laser corneal sculpting is the medical procedure to treat Hypermetropia which consists of the use of the laser in order to reshape the surface of eye.
The cornea of the eye is the transparent tissue which covers the front of eye and helps in controlling the focus. In the laser surgery, a computer-controlled laser is utilized for removing the microscopic amounts of the tissue from the front surface of the eye called the cornea.
In the operation called photorefractive keratectomy, a thin outer layer from the cornea that is called the corneal epithelium is removed and then the underlying layers are reshaped.
In LASIK eye surgery, a thin flap of the corneal tissue is made with a fine instrument called a microkeratome or a femtosecond laser. After that the flap is lifted out and the underlying tissue is reshaped and then the flap is replaced so as to cover the new recontoured surface.
Hypermetropia is not the disease but only a defect in the eye that is needed to be treated by surgery only in cases if the person cannot wear eye glasses or the contact lenses. The person should be of minimum age of 20 to consider the laser surgery.
The refractive error should be stable. The people suffering from diabetes, the uncontrolled rheumatic conditions or the diseases of immune system should avoid the surgery. The people with abnormally shaped cornea or very thin cornea should also avoid it.
The laser does not burn the tissue instead vaporizes the small amounts of cornea in each shot. The diameters of laser beam as well as the number of pulses is directed are controlled by the computer technology.
After the surgery the person can the eyes dried or even may get an infection that is to be treated with the antibiotics.
