Is There a Non-Surgical Solution for Gynecomastia?

Dr. Joshua Greenwald frequently consults with men who have gynecomastia, or enlarged, woman-like breasts.

Thus, the prospect of treating gynecomastia with non-surgical solutions is commonly broached.

Whether gynecomastia can be treated non-surgically depends on the circumstances of the case — namely the anatomy of the breasts. Read on to learn more. (more…)

Why Quarantine Is the Perfect Time to Get Plastic Surgery

Benefits of Exparel

Tummy tuck completely transforms the abdomen, taking it from flabby and saggy to flat and firm. But it is no secret that the surgical recovery can be uncomfortable, especially during the first few days. Post-operative pain is one of the most common concerns patients have about surgery, and understandably so.

Recently Dr. Joshua Greenwald started offering a new pain management protocol to help tummy tuck patients recover more comfortably. Exparel® is a local anesthetic that provides long-lasting post-surgical pain control with a single dose.

The Incredible Benefits of Tummy Tuck

If you have always been self-conscious of your stomach, or you miss the flat, toned stomach you had before children, tummy tuck can help. The procedure can completely make over your midsection, vastly improving the way you look and feel.

You are probably most familiar with the cosmetic benefits of tummy tuck. The procedure creates a slimmer and firmer-looking stomach by removing excess skin and fat, tightening the abdominal muscles and re-draping the skin. Sometimes tummy tuck can even remove stretch marks, depending on whether the marks are located on the skin that is removed during surgery.

But tummy tuck offers more than just aesthetic benefits; the procedure can also improve your personal comfort, health and physical function. Read on as Dr. Joshua Greenwald explains more of the incredible rewards of tummy tuck. (more…)

Are Botox and Fillers Safe During Pregnancy?

Botox and fillers are some of the most frequently requested cosmetic treatments at the practice of Dr. Joshua Greenwald. Because these injectables are commonly used on women of childbearing age, Dr. Greenwald is often asked about the safety of these products during pregnancy.

If you regularly receive Botox and have discovered you are pregnant, it is understandable you want to do everything you can to ensure the safety of your growing baby. Unfortunately, the effects of Botox and fillers during pregnancy are largely unknown. Few studies have investigated the possibility of Botox or fillers harming an unborn baby or passing into breast milk while nursing. Furthermore, it is unlikely there will ever be significant, formal scientific studies to evaluate the effects of injectables on developing babies.

Due to this lack of information, Botox and fillers are not recommended for expecting mothers. Most doctors, including Dr. Greenwald, advise against undergoing these procedures while pregnant. (more…)
