Achieving The Harmonious Breast

My goal for every patient with questions or concerns about their breasts is that I create and maintain breast harmony while achieving in what they are interested. Sometimes the patient doesn’t know exactly what bothers them about their breasts. They may think that their breasts are too small, have never been big enough, or were big enough but are now smaller after childbirth, aging, or weight loss. Breasts sometimes don’t have enough volume, lose firmness, don’t match, aren’t in the same position on the chest right versus left, or the patient’s chest isn’t symmetrical before you even look at the … Read More

Cool Vs. Heat: What Works Best For Noninvasive Fat Removal?

Noninvasive fat removal: what technologies exist, what works, what is hype. First of all, I want to talk about CoolSculpting which has been on the market almost 10 years. I have 8 years of use and experience with the device. CoolSculpting is the gold standard, in my opinion, for noninvasive fat removal. CoolSculpting represents 70% of the noninvasive fat removal market and is the technology that all others market against. It is FDA cleared for treatment of 8 specific areas. These aren’t FDA clearances for technology that is shared by multiple companies, but these are specific FDA clearances for CoolSculpting. … Read More

Why ThermiVa® for Vaginal Rejuvenation?

Women concerned about reduced vaginal sensitivity or leaky bladders now have a number of nonsurgical treatment options available. We’ve researched the various devices and decided to offer ThermiVa® at our northwestern Ohio practice because it’s by far the most effective of the treatments. What is ThermiVa®? The 45-minute ThermiVa® procedure increases blood flow and stimulates nerve endings using radiofrequency energy. It’s used both internally and externally, meaning both the vagina and labia are treated. ThermiVa® produces a sustained comfortable temperature elevation that is necessary to get the desired results. The controlled radiofrequency energy needs time and an elevated temperature to … Read More

Allergan Breast Implant Options

It was only a little more than 10 years ago that the choice of breast implants at our Toledo, Ohio practice — and throughout the U.S. — was limited to round, saline implants. That’s all changed and women getting breast augmentation have more choices than ever when it comes to implants, including both saline and silicone gel. Allergan, one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of breast implants, has 5 different styles. The traditional implants I used for years were the Style 10, 15, 20 and 45 that are filled with silicone gel to about 85% capacity of the outer shell. … Read More

CoolSculpting® Vs. Liposuction: Which Is Right for Me?

When considering a fat reduction treatment, it’s important to understand your desired results, recovery expectations, and the level of invasiveness that you are comfortable with. While CoolSculpting and liposuction are both effective methods of fat reduction, they vary in several major ways. For one, CoolSculpting has gained popularity as a quick, non-surgical approach to fat reduction, while liposuction remains a common surgical option yielding immediate results. Regardless of their differences, both liposuction and CoolSculpting are meant as body contouring procedures and not weight-loss treatments. If you have reached or are nearly at your ideal weight, but are struggling with stubborn … Read More
