I am Dr Amit, plastic surgeon and director of Divine Cosmetic Surgery, we are located in South Extension Part- 2 in New Delhi.

So today I am going to talk little bit about one of the most common cosmetic surgery problem in men Gynecomastia, ye jo problem hai yeh sirf males me affect hoti hai jisme jo chest hota hai woh thoda sa jyada develop ho jata hai toh ek female like appearance aa jati hai, so it is also called man boobs ya male breast problem. Now as such isme koi functional problem nahi hoti hai kabhi bhi long term life mein usse koi dikkat nahi aayegi what happens is a patient is hesitate to take off his clothes, woh beech pe ja rahi hai ya ek tight T- shirt pehnane mein they feel very hesitant because ek female breast ki appearance aati hai toh unko ek psychological hitch aata hai, mentally wo itna comfortable nahi ho pate, toh normally lose clothes pahnte hain. Toh hamare paas jo patients aate hain unki ek hi complaint hoti hai ki hamari clothing suffer karti hai ya hum usko tighter clothes pehnane ya humko beech jaana hai toh we want better body. So Gynecomastia ki jo surgery hai woh bahut straight forward hai usme liposuction surgery karte hain aur dusri jo surgery hoti hai woh isliye hoti hai ki kuch patients mein fat ke alawa breast gland hota hai, nipple ke bilkul niche gland develop ho jata hai to usko nikalne ke liye surgery karni padti hai. Total procedure time 25 to 35 minutes hai or 2 se 3 ghante mein aap discharge bhi ho jate hain and aapki normal activity you can start as soon as the next day. Now this procedure is essentially scarless aap is procedure mein scar almost dekh hi nahi payenge jo liposuction ka nishan aata hai woh 4 millimetre ka ya even 3 millimetres ka hota hai woh dekh hi nahi sakta aur jo nipple ke neeche fat gland jo hota hai usko nikalne ke liye jo surgery hoti hai woh bhi 3 to 4 week ke baad wo nishan nazar nahi aata hai. So essentially scarless procedure hai, recovery in terms of rest hardly 2 din aap weekend pe karte hain toh monday ko back in office. Precautions kareeb 10 days tak heavy exercising mana hai so any sort of biking or gym, sports 10 din tak hum mana karte hain. Now ek aur isme surgery aati hai usko 4D Body Contouring bolte hai usme hum log chest packs ko bana pate hain, chest packs matlab normal ek breast gland, breast hai usme humne suction kara, gland nikal diya shape better kar diya. Agar hum ko ek athlete wali ya bodybuilder wali body dikhana chahte hain ki chest packs banaye huye hai toh 4D Body Contouring se hum log chest packs ko bhi create kar sakte hain, usme kareeb 1 ghanta lagta hai and within 3 weeks mein woh pura chest packs ki appearance aa jati hai. Now yeh surgery local anaesthesia mein bhi ki ja sakti hai ya general anaesthesia mein hospital mein jaake bhi kar sakte hain, jo hospital based procedures hai usme comfort jyada hai kyuki aap behosh ho jate hain you don't even come to know what's going on and within 3 to 4 hours hum aapko discharge kar dete hain. Absolutely complication free procedure 0% isme koi risk nahi hota, koi complication nahi hota and result is 100%. Jo patient satisfaction rates hai wo bahut high hai and kabhi complaint hi nahi aati also recurrence nahi hoti hai kyunki humne gland nikal diya, fat nikal diya, unless aapka weight 10-12 kilo badd jaye, uske bina fat aata nahi hai, essentially yeh one time procedure hai.

So agar aap consult karna chahte hain humko to aap Lybrate ke through ya phir hame South Extension mein hamare clinic pe directly contact kar sakte hain. Mera naam Dr. Amit and I am from Divine Cosmetic Surgery.

Hello,

I am Dr Amit I am a plastic surgeon and director of Divine Cosmetic Surgery, we are located in South Extension, Part- 2 in Delhi, one of our key areas of work is with hair transplant.

Now hair transplant ke baare mein it is one of the commonest plastic surgeries in men and bahut log confuse hote hain ki hair transplant hai kya cheez. Hair transplant is basically redistribution of hair hum log ek permanent zone jo hamara back of the head hota hai wahan se baal late hain and we implant in the recipient segment jahan pe baal kam hai which may be the front, top portion or even the crown. Now hair transplant ek single step process hota hai, agar humko front ka area cover karna hai toh dhai- teen hazaar baal me front ho jata hai and suppose baldness is extending till the back, toh even no se dus hazaar baal hum log ek single session me easily plan out kar sakte hain. Now hamare clinic ki jo USB’s hai wo ye hai ki hum paanch different techniques se hair transplant karte hain. Jo techniques hai woh hai ek strip procedure jisko FUT bola jata hai jisme hum log piche se ek hair bearing strip ko nikal ke and we separate each hair or ek ek karke baalo ko jo hamara recipient zone hai uspe lagate hain. Second technique hoti hai FUE ya extraction procedure, usme piche punch wise eke k punch karke ek graph ko nikal ke lagaya jata hai. Third technique which is our speciality is long hair transplant, agar koi patient hain jo shave nahi karna chahte bilkul and even next day office jaana chahte hain toh usme situation mein hum log lambe baal laga dete hain. So we take take out longer hair we don't trim of it at all and implant in-between existing hair so the patients appearance is preserved. Fourth technique hoti hai robotic hair transplant jo ki extraction technique ek modification hai usme we use a robotic machine to take out the hair. Last is a combination of techniques suppose humko 9,000 ya 10,000 follicles lagaane, hai then we mix different techniques and take out the hair. We give a hundred percent assurance result agar hum log 5,000 baal implant karenge to 5,000 grow karenge, we in fact have so much confidence in our technique that we even give a money back guarantee, ki agar result itna satisfactory nahi hua toh we will offer a money back in terms of ki kitne baal grow kare ya kitne nahi kare, so itna confidence hai hum logo ko apne hair transplant results mein. Now hair transplant ki jo recovery hai woh na barabar there is almost no recovery period, agar chahe toh even next se aap back to office ja sakte hain, almost no pain maximum che se aath ghante barah ghante tak jo ki normal pain killers easily manage ho jata hai and 95% patients hamare next day office mein they are there. And jo result hai woh kareeb aath se no mahine leta hai, transplant kiya uske dhai se teen mahine ke baad balo ki growth hoti hai and then over the next 6 months the hair keeps growing and a final result almost 9 to 10 months baad aata hai. Kafi patients poochte hain ki koi precaution lene hai kya transplant ke baad, so they are very worried ke koi complication to nahi ho jayegi ya koi precaution to nahi padenge. So hundred percent it is absolutely sure ki koi complication nahi hai bilkul written assurance hoti hai and aapki precaution while sirf one week tak aapko sports avoid karne hai, koi gym activity avoid karni hai, otherwise aapko koi bhi restriction nahi rakhni hai apne upar.

Now agar aap humse consult karna chahte hain toh safest medium is lybrate which assures you of good doctor patient interaction.

Blepharoplasty - Who Can Undergo The Same?

Blepharoplasty - Who Can Undergo The Same?

Sagging eyebrows, baggy eyelids (both upper and lower eyelids) or under eye bags can be quite annoying and uncomfortable. Though mostly observed among aged people, the problem can equally affect people of other age groups. Left unattended for a long time, the sagging eyebrows or droopy eyelids can even interfere with one's vision, especially the peripheral vision. The Eye Lift or Blepharoplasty comes as a much-needed savior that can work wonders to deal with droopy eyelids and similar problems with efficiency and precision.

Who can undergo the Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty comes as the best option under the following situations

  • The droopy upper eyelids affecting the side or peripheral vision to a great extent.
  • The increased bagginess of the lower eyelids results in the appearance of wrinkles, making one look older than their age.
  • The appearance of under eye bags, especially in young adults.

The steps involved in Blepharoplasty

  • Before the surgery, a patient is given a local anesthesia in the form of intravenous (IV) sedation to ease the pain and the discomfort.
  • Incisions are then made along the natural lines of the eyelid to remove the excess skin and the fats.
  • The surgeon then carefully makes minute stitches to close the incisions. This is mainly carried out in the case of upper eyelids.
  • For the lower eyelids, the procedure may be different depending on the type of incision.
    • In some case, the saggy and excess muscles, fats or skin may be excised through incisions made along the margins of the eyelash.
    • Alternately, the excess fats can also be removed through incisions made inside the lower eyelids. This may be followed by an Erbium Laser Resurfacing to take care of the fine lines (in both the cases).
  • The surgery, however, may not be as simple as it sounds. Make sure you opt for an experienced surgeon. Research on the matter well enough before you go for the surgery.
  • In most of the cases, sans any complications, the stitches are removed within a week or two.
  • Minor side-effects such as swelling, irritation, watery eyes, bruising, blurred vision, pain, the eyelids appearing numb may be observed.
  • However, consult your surgeon immediately in the case of excruciating pain, loss of vision, infection at the incision site, severe bleeding, difficulty in closing the eyes, dry eyes, to name a few.

Precautionary steps for a faster healing
The hourly use of cold compress or ice packs (for about 10-12 minutes) following the surgery can be of great help.

  • Avoid rubbing the eyes or wearing a contact lens for some days following the surgery.
  • Do not miss out on a single medicine or eyedrops advised by the doctor.
  • Smoking, strenuous and rigorous physical activities such as exercise, swimming or lifting of heavy objects should be avoided for at least a week or as advised by the surgeon.
  • Avoid direct contact with the sun or going outside the house without wearing dark glasses.
  • Practice a good personal hygiene. Keep the eyelids clean but don't be harsh.

Hymenoplasty - Know The Procedures Involved In It?

Hymenoplasty - Know The Procedures Involved In It?

Not many people are aware of the term Hymenoplasty. For some people, an intact hymen has a great significance (often an indication of a female virginity). However, you don't always need an intercourse for the hymen sheath (a thin tissue membrane that surrounds the external opening of the vagina) to break. Activities such as horse riding, gymnastics, swimming, to name a few, can play a pivotal role bringing about the rupture of the hymen.

For long, people believed that a hymen, once ruptured, can never be restored. With the advancement of technology, this fact is slowly getting transformed into a myth. With Hymenoplasty (also called as a Hymen reconstruction surgery) one can achieve the impossible i.e reconstruction of a ruptured hymen surgically. Hymenoplasty also comes as a blessing for women born without a hymen. In this case, a Hymenoplasty aids in creating a new hymen, making life a lot easier for the concerned person.

Procedure involved in a Hymenoplasty

  • Before opting for a Hymenoplasty, one should have a proper understanding of the surgical procedure, including the pros and the cons. Thus, a consultation with the surgeon (should be experienced with impressive credentials and success rate) is of prime importance.
  • Once you are fully prepared (physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially), the surgeon will fix a date for the surgery.
  • Hymenoplasty is a hassle-free procedure that involves the following steps.
    • Before the surgery, a local anesthesia is given to the patient to make the procedure less painful.
    • The ruptured edges of the hymen tissues are then carefully sutured together. The suturing of the hymen is done in such a way that the vaginal opening is not fully covered or concealed.
    • In some cases, a new hymen may also be constructed using the flap of skin present in the vaginal lining.
  • The entire procedure of Hymenoplasty seldom takes more than two hours. The patient, however, needs to be thoroughly observed and monitored for the next two-three hours (for signs of any complications or extreme side effects and discomfort).
  • The complete healing and recovery may take between six-eight weeks.
  • In most of the cases, the patient is discharged on the same day.

The risks associated with Hymenoplasty
There is seldom any extreme complications or risks associated with Hymenoplasty. However, mild pain, swelling, tightening of the vaginal wall, and bleeding are some of the side-effects that may persist for a few days following the surgery.

Precautions one must take 
The following precautionary measures can work wonders, ensuring a better recovery sans any complications.

  • Physical activities such as strenuous exercise, swimming, aerobics should be avoided for at least a few weeks or as recommended by the doctor.
  • Do not indulge in sex immediately after Hymenoplasty. In most cases, doctors advise four weeks break from sexual intercourse following the hymen restoration surgery.
  • Going for Epsom salt baths (sitting on it) at least twice or thrice a week can work wonders, speeding up the healing process.

Breast Implants - Common Myths & Facts About It!

Breast Implants - Common Myths & Facts About It!

The Breast implants, be it the saline or the silicone implants comes as a blessing for people who have struggled for ages with a small breast. From lifting your self-confidence to enhancing the overall appearance, the benefits of breast implants are immense. However, there are some myths associated with the breast implants that should be busted for people to understand the procedure better.

Myth: The breast implants produces same results in all individuals.
Fact: This myth is as dead as a dodo. A lot of factors are taken into consideration (such as the breast size, the type of the implants used, the skin condition, to name a few) before a surgical breast implantation. The breast implants can never produce identical results in two individuals. You are unique and so will be the implantation.

Myth: Breast implants performed by an experienced surgeon will never cause any side-effects or complications.
Fact: There is no denying the fact that an experienced surgeon with a higher success rate will ensure better results. However, one cannot guarantee that there will be no complications at all. Minor side-effects such as swelling, bruising, inflammation, skin irritation or pain are inevitable. Depending on the physical health of the person, complications such as bleeding or infection may also be witnessed in some patients. Going under the skin and expecting no side-effects at all is only fooling yourself.

Myth: Silicone implants are highly dangerous and can trigger extreme health complications and discomfort.
Fact: There was a time when the silicone implants were indeed a little less safe when compared to the saline implants. However, with the advancement of science and technology, this fact no longer holds true. The silicone implants presently used are safe and durable (seldom there is a rupture or a severe tissue scar). There has also been extensive research that proves that the superior quality silicone implants used do not trigger diseases or health complications including cancer (though exceptions will be there).


Myth: Breast Implants does not interfere with the breastfeeding.
Fact: Some lactating women having undergone breast implantation may experience discomfort and difficulty while breastfeeding the baby (especially when the breast implantation surgery is performed through the areola). In fact, lactating and nursing mothers are often advised to wait for a few years (or till the baby is into breastfeeding) before opting for the surgery.

Myth: The breast implants, be it silicone or saline, should be replaced in every ten years time.
Fact: Many people still give in to this myth. The condition of the implants alone can decide when it needs to be replaced. Thus, while some women may need a replacement in about eight years, others may continue with the same implant sans any complications for way more than ten years.

Myth: The breast implantation produces visible results immediately.
Fact: A breast augmentation cannot work miracles. On an average, it takes at least eight-twelve weeks (may vary among individuals) for the results visible.

Breast Reduction - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

Breast Reduction - Things You Must Be Aware Of!

There is no denying the fact that a perfect figure can enhance your personality to a great extent, adding an alluring charm that people will find hard to ignore. The size of one's breast can play a significant role, affecting one's overall appearance. Heavy breasts can be physically discomforting (skin maceration, backaches, neck and shoulder aches, problems during exercises or physical activities,) not to forget the public humiliation and mockery that it brings along. Some men with a medical condition known as Gynecomastia also end up having enlarged breasts making the situation awkward and embarrassing for them.

To deal with the embarrassment and physical discomfort, many people retort to the various breast reduction surgical procedures. The breast reduction procedures have helped millions of people achieve the desired breast shape and size. However, the success of the breast reduction procedures depends on many factors.

There are things that a person should be aware of before opting for a breast reduction.

  • A breast reduction surgery or a reduction mammoplasty is no small thing. It is a decision that is going to make an impact in your life and overall appearance in ways beyond your imagination. You cannot expect the surgery to work miracles overnight. Be more realistic about your expectations and do not take such an important decision in haste.
  • Not every individual with enlarged breasts can undergo a breast reduction. A person has to be physically fit (without any medical conditions) with sound mental and emotional stability. People who are severely obese and those into heavy smoking are often considered unfit for the surgery. For pregnant and lactating women, an immediate breast reduction surgery may not be a wise idea.
  • Teenagers and adolescents are considered unfit for a breast reduction as their breast are yet not fully developed and matured. The minimum age for a breast reduction is 21 years.
  • Your choice of the surgeon is crucial. While an experienced surgeon can bring about the desired result with minimum or no complications, an inexperienced surgeon can worsen up things for you. Research on the surgeon, their credentials, work history and success rate well.
  • The breast reduction surgeries involving the latest and advanced technologies will be an expensive affair. Make sure you are financially prepared to take the plunge.
  • The recovery time following the surgery may stretch between six-seven weeks (or even more in some cases). During the recovery, there will be restrictions and precautionary measures that a person should follow.
    • Lifting heavy articles, indulging in strenuous and rigorous exercise and physical activities should be avoided for at least four-six weeks (or as the doctor recommended).
    • Driving is a big No for a month or two or as advised by the doctor.
    • Depending on how well your incisions heal, there may be some pain and swelling in the breasts.The breast for the first few days may also appear sensitive and tender. For better support, wear a well-fitted bra (preferably an athletic or a sports bra).
    • Consult a doctor in the case of severe bleeding, excruciating pain, hematoma or a loss of sensation in the breasts and nipples that lasts longer than usual.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
