Piles or haemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum or anus. They can have a lot of possible causes, but the exact reason is still unknown. The one most common reason that researchers cite is the excessive straining during bowel movement and increased pressure on the veins during pregnancy. Some of the common signs of this condition include discomfort, bleeding, and itching. A clot can be witnessed occasionally. There could be swelling around the anus as well.
How is a pile diagnosed?
Doctors often recognize this condition just by doing a physical exam of the rectum. By lubricating the glove and inserting a finger into the rectum, a doctor can gauge any unusual growth around the rectum area. A doctor might also use a sigmoidoscopy or a proctoscopy to witness the lower portion of the colon. Apart from this, a doctor might prescribe a colonoscopy, if he fathoms that there is a possibility of colorectal cancer or a disease related to the digestive system.

Lip augmentation is a restorative (cosmetic) procedure where your lips are reshaped to make them appear fuller. Cosmetic procedures are done for aesthetic improvement, but surgical lip augmentation is performed if the lips are affected by any congenital condition or tissue trauma.
Dermal fillers are mostly used to enlarge the lips. Previously, collagen was the most popular filler, but currently, due to various health reasons, doctors do not use it as often as before. Now, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular dermal filler.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally available in your body, especially in your neural, epithelial and connective tissues. The fillers that doctors presently use are chemically similar to hyaluronic acid. It is extremely beneficial in adding volume to your lips.
Applications of Hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid fillers also include the following benefits:
Risks of lip augmentation
Like every surgical procedure, lip augmentation too has certain risks involved. Some of the contraindications (situational dangers of certain drugs or procedures) include:

My last article gave insight on the non-medical methods of controlling premature ejaculation. Now, as a wrap up on this topic, I will highlight the options of medical treatments available for managing P.E. However, take it as a warning that you must consult your doctor before trying out any of these methods and medicines, because more often than not, such drugs and medicines have their side effects that can adversely bother your health.
By now we know that Premature ejaculation (PE) occurs when a man reaches peak of sexual excitement and ejaculates before he actually wants it to happen, thus, leaving his partner deprived of the sexual pleasure that she deserves. Even the most empathetic female partner would not like his man to leave her unsatisfied in bed. Sooner or later this problem becomes a medical problem, reduces the warmth in their relationship.
Several factors including psychological problems such as anxiety; biological problem like penile hypersensitivity, hormonal imbalance (e.g. thyroid problem); behavioural problem like, habituation of quick sex/masturbation, etc may be held responsible for causing PE.
Medical (Allopathic) therapy for PE treatment:
Drugs used for managing premature ejaculation reduce sensitivity and anxiety, improve blood flow and even affect some chemical mediators present in the brain. These class of drugs include local anaesthetics, antidepressants and phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors.
Anaesthetic compounds were the first medical treatment proposed for PE management. They were applied topically to the surface of skin. Lidocaine-prilocaine sprays or creams decrease the sensation of the penis and increase the time taken to ejaculate during vaginal penetration. These sprays/ creams are applied 10 to 20 minutes prior to sexual activity. Side effects of topical agents include partial loss of sensation of penis, absorption in vagina resulting in vaginal numbness and irritation.
Earlier agents like Alpha Amino Benzoate and Phenoxybenzamine were used to prolong duration of intercourse, but they were associated with severe side effects.
It has been found that Serotonin (a chemical in brain) levels were deficient in PE patients. Treatment medications include Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), which interact with a receptor (5-HT2C) present in brain and increases the production of Serotonin. They also help in reducing anxiety and depression associated with PE. Through this mechanism, they prolong the time to reach ejaculation. Several SSRIs have increasingly become used as 'off-label' for PE.
Among the available SSRIs, Paroxetine-Dapoxetine is more beneficial with lesser side effects as compared to other SSRIs. These medications are associated with sexual side effects including decreased fertility and erectile dysfunction. Dapoxetine is a recent SSRI which acts quickly and cleared rapidly from the body. Adverse effects with SSRIs are usually minor and include fatigue, mild nausea, loose stools and sweating. Other side effects may include decreased sexual urge and increased tendency to suicide, especially with long-term use of Paroxetine.
Another potential medical treatment option for PE are class of medications which increase the blood flow by dilating the blood vessels of penile region and prolong the PE. But headache, dizziness, flushing, body-ache associated with them have limited their use in PE.
At present, clinicians need to consider all treatment modalities when evaluating a man with PE, as each patient may respond differently and experience variable side effects. Additional and more effective therapies need to be developed having least side effects.
Ayurvedic therapy for PE treatment:
Vajikaran in Ayurveda is an important treatment modality which increases sexual capacity and improves health. In Sanskrit, Vaji means horse, the symbol of sexual potency and performance thus Vajikaran means producing a horse's vigour, particularly the animal's great capacity for sexual activity in the individual. Vajikaran therapy reenergizes all the seven dhatus (body elements), and restores equilibrium and health. It also offers a solution to minimize the shukra (sperm and ovum) defects.
There are many formulations which are used in Vajikaran. Some of the commonly used formulations include Vrihani Gutika, Vrishya Gutika, Vajikaranam Ghritam and Upatyakari Shashtikadi Gutika.
Vrihani Gutika is one of the potent formulations while Vrishya Gutika is highly potent aphrodisiac used in treatment of PE. Vajikaranam Ghritam enhances the strength of penis. Upatyakari Shashtikadi Gutika is useful for the enhancement of the fertility.
Also, Chapdraprabha Vati and Kaunch Pak are known to increase sexual vigour and semen consistency helping in increase in sexual timing.
So, with this concluding article, I wrap up my knowledge and experience in treating patients suffering from premature ejaculation. Take care, and stay healthy!
Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat from some parts of the body to improve your overall body contour. Essentially, this cosmetic procedure involves insertion of small, thin but blunt-shaped needles under the skin in those areas that have excess fat. Fat is then suctioned out through these needles by moving them from one place to another under the skin. Also called as “lipo”, this type of cosmetic surgery addresses the following body parts;
Liposuction can be performed along with other cosmetic surgeries such as facelift, breast reduction, tummy tuck etc. Please note that liposuction cannot be used to reduce obesity, diabetes and other weight-related disorders.
Types of Liposuction
In recent years, this surgical procedure has been made less painful by developing newer techniques. These are:
Liposuction is not an elaborate procedure and does not require overnight hospitalization most cases. The patient is administered a local anesthetic so that she does not experience any pain. Overnight hospitalisation may be required if the volume of fat to be removed is large.
Post this surgery, expect your body to swell. The parts of your body where liposuction has been carried out will display swellings, bruises etc. You may even experience pain in those areas. To alleviate discomfort, patients are wrapped up in bandages, support hoses, girdles etc. Some patients may report fluids oozing from the areas affected by liposuction. To prevent infection, doctors prescribe antibiotics to such patients.
Swelling and bruises may continue for the next 7- 10 days post this surgery. Patients may have to wear the bandages, girdles, wraps etc. for the next 3-4 days.
Liposuction results in a better shape if the volume of fat removed is small. If the patient regains weight after liposuction, fat reappears in those areas which have not been treated.
