Don't Let 'Moobs' Stand in the Way of Summer Fun

Don't Let 'Moobs' Stand in the Way of Summer Fun

Summer has definitely hit in Dallas. Time to crank up the air conditioning and jump in the pool. But do you hesitate taking off your shirt and diving into summer fun because you have "moobs," also known as man boobs? If you’re sweating and struggling with enlarged male breast tissue, suffer no longer. Dr. Bill Johnson treats men with enlarged breast tissue at Innovations.

What Causes Moobs?
Moobs, medically known as gynecomastia, are caused by a number of conditions, the most common of which is weight gain. Some men are able to diet and exercise to eliminate moobs that develop as a result of weight gain, but others are stuck with enlarged tissue because fat in this area can be stubborn and refuse to tone. Gynecomastia affects 40 percent of men in America.

You can still change your look with minimally invasive or non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Advances in technology and medicine have made it possible to resculpt, reshape and rejuvenate the body and skin with fewer incisions and faster recovery times. Learn more about the non-invasive cosmetic procedures offered by Innovations Medical.

Liposuction. At or near your goal weight but have stubborn fat in some areas that won't budge even with exercise and a healthy diet? You're not alone. Many individuals have stubborn fat in areas like the thighs, midsection and upper arms that won't go away no matter how hard they work out. Liposuction can help get rid of this stubborn fat in many different body areas. Innovations uses Smart Lipo, which can not only eliminate fat, but also help boost collagen production and tighten the skin and tissues in treated areas. This added benefit leaves you with a shapelier result - without major surgery and all that comes with full body-lift procedures.

Fat Transfer. While some people want to get rid of fat from body areas, others want to add fat to specific body areas. Dr. Johnson performs autologous fat transfers that take fat from one part of your body (i.e., the midsection or lower back) and transfer it to another part of your body, such as your buttocks for a Brazilian butt-lift or your breasts for a natural breast augmentation.

Seeking Sexy Legs?

Seeking Sexy Legs?

Do you dream of shapely legs? You are not alone. Men and women in gyms across the country climb endless flights of stairs, do countless lunges and leg-press hundreds of pounds in hopes of getting slim and sexy legs. While exercising can help to shape the legs and tone and build muscle, some people experience spots of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter how often they go to the gym. Don't get discouraged - there's still hope. It's called SmartLipo.

Why Can't I Get Rid of Stubborn Leg Fat?
There are a few reasons why you can't get rid of stubborn leg fat through exercise or a healthy diet. Genetics, diet and stress all play a role in why your body holds on to fat. Women also tend to hold on to fat more readily than men because fat and fertility have a relationship: When you lose too much fat, your body could stop menstruation. To prevent the early onset of menopause, your body holds on to extra fat, especially in the thighs.

Natural Breast Augmentation: Avoid Surgery, Get Bigger Breasts

Natural Breast Augmentation: Avoid Surgery, Get Bigger Breasts

If you’re like most women, you’ve probably considered having breast augmentation surgery. While many women think about having the procedure, fewer than 10 percent of women go under the knife. So, what makes the other 90 percent not choose surgery? Many of these women cite reasons like wanting to avoid pain and scarring from the procedure. Others say they do not want the long period of downtime during recovery. So, what is the solution for women who want to augment their breasts but don't want to have surgery? Natural breast augmentation offered by Innovations Medical.

What Is the Natural Breast Augmentation Procedure?
During the natural breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Johnson takes fat from another area of the patient, like the thigh or abdomen, through liposuction and injects it into the breasts. Patients stay awake throughout the procedure and are numbed in the treatment area with tumescent fluid. The fat fills out the breast, increasing it in size. Fat transfers also help give the breasts some lift because they induce the body to produce more collagen, which tightens the skin.
