    What Is Gynecomastia?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Gynecomastia refers to enlarged breasts in men. This condition can dramatically impact self-esteem and cause men to avoid physical activity and intimacy. The good news for gynecomastia sufferers is that it can often be corrected surgically.

    A number of things can trigger gynecomastia. For some men, gynecomastia is caused by hormonal imbalances, prescription medications, and even genetics. In other cases, men develop gynecomastia from using anabolic steroids. Excess alcohol consumption and marijuana have also been linked to gynecomastia. To treat this condition, Dr Jennifer Geoghegan can remove the excess fat in the chest area to give it a flatter appearance. Depending on your specific symptoms, your plastic surgeon may also need to remove excess skin and reposition the nipple for a natural appearance.

    You don’t have to accept the embarrassment of gynecomastia. Let Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa help you with a life-changing plastic surgery. Schedule a consultation by calling (480) 264-6428.

    The Patient's Guide to CoolSculpting

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Are you tired of dealing with stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to exercise? Are you hesitant to turn to plastic surgery? If so, then CoolSculpting could be right for you. This revolutionary treatment actually freezes your fat away so you can get the svelte physique you’ve always wanted. Here is what you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.

    How Does CoolSculpting Work?
    CoolSculpting gets rid of fat cells by freezing them. During treatment, medical providers and specialists will apply the cooling device to the treatment area. You will feel pressure as the fat is compressed and then a very cold sensation as it freezes. The fat cells are crystalized and die, after which they are expelled from your system over the coming weeks. Once the fat cells are gone, they will not come back. Though you may not weigh less on your scale, you will lose inches and your clothes will fit better.

    How Many Treatments Do I Need?
    The number of treatments required varies from patient to patient. Your medical providers and specialists at Oasis Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine which areas can benefit from treatment and how many sessions each area will require for optimum results. The length of each session also varies depending on how many areas are being treated.

    What Is the Recovery Like?
    Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment. Most people can resume normal activities right away. You may experience numbness, redness, soreness, stinging, or bruising after treatment, but these side effects are minimal for most patients and should subside quickly.

    To find out if CoolSculpting is right for you, make an appointment at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Our medical providers and specialists will evaluate your goals and help you select the right procedures to meet them. Make your appointment by calling OPS today at (480) 264-6428.

    Spotlight on Arm Lift Surgery

    Last updated 3 months ago

    Brachioplasties, or arm lift surgeries, are on the rise. Since 2000, plastic surgeons have seen a 4,000 percent increase in demand for this procedure. This video explains more.

    Arm lift surgery gets rid of excess skin on the bottom parts of the arms. In most cases, this skin is left behind after a significant weight loss. As the body gets smaller, the skin can’t always snap back into shape. Arm lift surgery corrects this. Although a scar is left behind after surgery, most patients prefer the scar to the excess skin.

    If you’re interested in arm lift surgery, schedule a consultation at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa. Learn more about all of our plastic surgery procedures by calling our Scottsdale clinic at (480) 264-6428.

    How to Prepare for a Breast Lift Procedure

    Last updated 4 months ago

    A breast lift can revitalize your appearance and even renew your self-esteem. Since this type of cosmetic surgery normally involves no overnight stay at a med spa, a breast lift can make it easy to enhance your look with minimal recovery requirements. As with any form of plastic surgery, however, it’s important to keep in mind some preparations necessary to ensure a safe and successful procedure.

    Health Considerations
    Prior to undergoing a breast lift, discuss all health issues with Dr Geoghegan. She should be aware of any existing conditions and medications. If you take drugs that may interfere with your body’s clotting abilities, she may ask that you refrain from using them in the weeks preceding your procedure. Certain habits can also adversely affect your health during and after your breast lift procedure. If you use tobacco products, your plastic surgeon may recommend that you cease smoking. Maintaining a stable weight in the weeks leading to your procedure can also help to ensure that your breast tissue does not undergo changes that may affect the outcome of your surgery.

    Lifestyle Accommodations
    Most surgical procedures, including breast lifts, require some rest and recovery time. To guarantee that your body has the time it needs to heal, make schedule adjustments well ahead of your surgery. If you have small children at home, you may ask a friend or family member to assist you with their care in the days after your breast lift. Engaging in activities that require lifting could damage healing incisions, so see to it that you can avoid these types of movements as you recover. If you work outside the home, you may want to discuss your temporary leave options with your employer so you can heal as needed.

    Do you have more questions about your upcoming breast lift? The friendly cosmetic surgery experts at Oasis Plastic Surgery & Skin Spa would be happy to answer your concerns. To learn more about this procedure, call (480) 264-6428 to speak with one of our Scottsdale associates.
