Plastic Surgery Center - Dra. Tania Medina Verified

The top plastic surgeon in Santo Domingo, Dr. Tania Medina, has been inclined toward the pursuit of beauty, skin care and the improvement and enhancement of the female form since she began participating in various beauty pageants.

I must say that overall, it was a great experience. Loving the results, and I am not even fully recovered yet. Can not WAIT for a full recovery. To ease some future concerns. I traveled by myself. As the Dr. says be comfortable knowing that you are in good hands. She has her team ready to care for you from the moment you step a foot into the country. I would without a doubt recommend her.

Hice la mejor elección al poner mi salud en excelentes manos. Los resultados han sido lo que quería con lo cual me siento muy satisfecha de haberme operado con mi cirujana estrella Tania Medina

I am very happy with my full facelift procedure that was performed in January 2020 by Dr. Alejandro and his professional team at Elaen Clinic in Puerto Vallarta. The procedure was performed in a 'state of the art' hospital with round the clock care following the procedure. From the initial consultation to my final post-op visit I was treated with respect and kindness. Dr. Alejandro is a consummate professional.

I’m writing to share my experience with My Medical Vacations in Cancun Mexico. From the time I arrived with my husband, Katie Ana and Betty took excellent care of us. We were picked up from the airport taken to all of my medical appointments. I had some concerns about surgery and Betty spoke with me in detail and addressed all my concerns and fears. I felt conformable – safe in their care and in Cancun. I had Blepharoplasty with Dr. Torres and Rhinoplasty with Dr. Montalvo, both surgeons were excellent and truly skilled at their craft. I had daily post-surgical visit from Ana our sweet nurse, who came to our hotel to make sure I was healing properly. My overall experience was wonderful and I absolutely love my results. I´m planning on coming back in the future. I highly recommend My Medical Vacations to anyone considering cosmetic surgery in Cancun. You´ll be in excellent hands. Than you all for your care and support. All the best, Karma Shanti Virginia-USA

I was very pleased with Dr. Picard-Ami and the cosmetic surgery he did on me five months ago. Dr. Picard-Ami was professional, very thorough from the first correspondence we had and extremely prompt in responding to any of my questions and concerns before and after surgery. My husband and I stayed at the Marriott which is located in the same complex as Dr. Picard-Ami’s office is. His staff took care of every detail from transporting me to the clinic where only plastic surgery is done (no worry of being with any Covid patients), kept my husband informed of everything during and after my surgery and checked on me daily. Walking to their offices after the surgery for follow up appointments was easy and convenient. Having any procedure during a pandemic is scary but at no time was I apprehensive about the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Picard-Ami and his staff if you are considering cosmetic surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and it was as painless as they promised.

Before I chose Dr. Luis A. Picard-Ami, Jr. in Panama City, Panama, I researched multiple aesthetic surgeons and simply could not find a surgeon as accomplished. My husband and I have had an outstanding experience and we highly recommend him; his skillfulness and expertise are irrefutable. For months, I communicated with him by email and he used his valuable time to thoroughly, thoughtfully and punctually answer every question. We followed up with simple pictures taken on our phones and he offered his recommendations, our options, detailed cost estimates, basic procedural guidance and aftercare information. He never sold us on additional procedures or products. Additionally, what endeared me to Dr. Picard-Ami was that he helped me to focus on how important realistic result expectations are. He has incredible attention to detail. My husband and I are now in our fifth week of healing and the results so far are completely natural and genuine even though our procedures were quite different. I am thrilled! Also, please know that the costs ended up exactly as quoted and were 30% lower than our U. S. quotes. Dr. Picard-Ami’s manner is warm, compassionate and gentle. His nurse and administrative assistant are also competent, caring and welcoming; they coordinate everything concerning surgical care and follow-up. I want to also share that he is the only surgeon we spoke with who recommended physical therapy following the surgery and we believe the ultrasound sessions facilitated our healing. His office is conveniently located in the Punta Pacifica Hospital as is the aftercare. Next week, we are to follow up with him by email with photos of our progress, and we are seeing steady improvement each day. We’ve had no complications to speak of and no regrets to date. I know we chose the best surgeon with the most caring staff and we simply loved visiting Panama. Please know that you can trust Dr. Picard-Ami; he exceeded our expectations and I know he will surpass yours too. RDS

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) Overview

Gynecomastia is a common condition where men develop breasts. In some cases, one breast develops more than the other resulting in asymmetry.

 

Typically, these men progress with small breasts, but these men can also grow very large breasts. It is a very embarrassing condition and can only be treated with male breast reduction.

 

Men with gynecomastia feel ashamed about the appearance of their chest because it is not considered “normal” for men to have breasts. They can experience medical issues such as pain, however most of their issues are emotional (decreased self-esteem, depression, loss of confidence).

 

The causes of male breast development are still being studied. Scientists believe that it is mostly a result of a hormonal imbalance. Men with gynecomastia have high levels of the female sex hormone estrogen and low levels of the male sex hormone testosterone.

 

Teenage boys can develop gynecomastia because their hormones are fluctuating while older men can develop it because testosterone slowly fades away.

 

There are, however, a number of other reasons men develop breasts. Some men have a genetic predisposition to the condition while others acquire it as a result of drug use: anti-depressants, blood pressure medicines, marijuana, and steroids.

 

Another related condition called pseudogynecomastia defines the development of male breasts because of excess weight. Typically, this development is mostly made up of fat and can be treated with a healthy diet and exercise. They can also undergo the liposuction-only breast reduction technique.

 

Male breast reduction can involve surgery, a combination of surgery and liposuction or just liposuction, which can add up to an expensive overall cost for male breast reduction. This is in addition to the hospital admission fees, anesthetic and the surgeon's charges.

 

Cyprus is among the most cost-effective destinations for plastic surgery. The natural beauty of Cyprus is enticing medical tourists. The cost of male breast reduction in Cyprus makes the island an inviting destination for many men from Europe and the US.

 

To undergo a breast reduction, men need to be emotionally secure and physically healthy.

 

Depending on how severe the gynecomastia is, your insurance company may cover some or all of the cost of your breast reduction.

 

A Good Candidate for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Men who have gynecomastia and have tried to reduce the excess fat with diet and exercise are good candidates for male breast reduction surgery.

 

Preparing for Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

To prepare for male breast reduction you should consider the following:

· Avoid medicines containing aspirin or ibuprofen a few weeks prior to surgery.

· Eat a balanced nutrient-rich diet before and after surgery. A healthy diet will help speed your male breast reduction recovery.

· Do not eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor.

· Do not wear make-up, contact lenses or other accessories to your surgery.

· Arrange to have someone take you home after surgery. If possible have them stay with you that evening around the house for a few days while you recover.
