Male Breast Enlargement is Something to Talk About

Comments Off on Male Breast Enlargement is Something to Talk About

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Ong understands the relationship between a person’s appearance and their sense of confidence. We do not develop self-esteem solely from our appearance. However, feeling good or bad about the way we look translates into our level of self-confidence. Male breast enlargement serves as one of many examples. Men whose breasts are large and soft may engage in numerous strategies to hide their shape. They may wear a compression vest. They may wear loose clothing. They may engage in extreme diet and exercise habits, all to no avail. Gynecomastia can be a tricky problem to beat but, make no mistake, it can be beaten with the right approach. Here, we discuss what that may be. Understanding Gynecomastia Male breast enlargement,…

Think Outside the Box for Your New Year’s Resolutions

Comments Off on Think Outside the Box for Your New Year’s Resolutions

After the year we just came through, you may have little motivation to set new resolutions. Regardless of the reminder that life can throw curveballs, sometimes very big ones, there is value in staying connected to the here-and-now. Resolutions don’t have to be what they’ve always been. In fact, there are good reasons to change things up a bit this year, especially as it pertains to health and wellness. We suggest getting specific. Instead of “I’m going to eat healthier and exercise more,” say “I’m going to stop eating processed foods and am going to do yoga three days a week.” One of the reasons so many resolutions are forgotten within a few months is that they are nonspecific. Without specificity, it is difficult to…

Liposuction: Is it Worth It?

Comments Off on Liposuction: Is it Worth It?

Of the many cosmetic procedures people can choose from today, we continually see liposuction within the Top 5. This procedure, which manually and systematically extracts fat cells from one or more areas of the body, has consistently demonstrated good results with minimal downtime. The fact that liposuction is popular does tell us something. It tells us that many people are looking for better results than they are getting with diet and exercise. Does it tell us that liposuction is worth it, though? Perhaps not. Only you can answer that question for yourself. Here, we discuss how to do that. Where to Begin To know if liposuction would be worth it, you could start by consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal…

What is the Point of Customized Supplements?

Comments Off on What is the Point of Customized Supplements?

Supplements such as vitamins and various herbs have been relatively popular for years. Many people grew up with the teaching that a daily multivitamin was a must to sustain excellent health. Alongside a well-balanced, low-sugar diet, supplementation offers significant benefits. How significant those benefits are, however, are dependent on a few factors. The factor that most are familiar with is the quality of the vitamin or supplement itself. Those with few, if any, fillers are ideal. The other factor, the one that often gets overlooked, is its suitability for the individual. It is no secret that optimal health requires good levels of various vitamins and minerals. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been associated with numerous symptoms, including poor sleep, depression, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches. To…
