News just in from our client, Revive Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging Institute about Breast Reduction in Miami

What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure that reduces breast volume while improving its shape. It involves removing excess fat, tissue, and skin to achieve the patient’s desired breast size and proportion.

In this surgery, a breast lift is combined with removing the excess volume of the breast. This is the ideal choice for a woman with excessively large breasts who are experiencing neck pain and back pain due to the weight of the breast. Some of the other reasons why men and women consider breast reduction in Miami include:

  • To relieve body pain and discomfort caused by overly large breasts or macromastia.
  • To alleviate the mental and emotional distress that macromastia and gynecomastia (men with enlarged breasts) have caused.
  • To achieve proportionate and symmetrical breasts.

Furthermore, overly large breasts can make some women self-conscious and hinder them from leading active lives. If you have the same dilemma, then it’s time to consider breast reduction surgery to bring back your confidence in your own body.

Latest update from our client, Pediatric Eye Associates about What is a Subconjunctival Hemorrhage in Children?

If your child spontaneously develops a red spot on the white of their eye, it may be a subconjunctival hemorrhage. The good news is this condition is usually harmless and will not affect your child’s vision.

A subconjunctival hemorrhage often resolves after a week or two without needing treatment.

Where did the name “subconjunctival hemorrhage” come from? The white area of the eye is called the sclera. It is covered by the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is made of clear tissue and tiny blood vessels.

The blood vessels can break and blood then pools between the conjunctiva and the sclera, which leaves a bright red spot on the surface known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage.

Check out our client, Seven Cells Pharmacy new page about Compounding pharmacies — FAQs

These medications are not commercially available (mass-produced-FDA-approved drugs).

Some people need medications that are not commercially available. That is where compounding pharmacies come in. They were the “normal” way drugs were dispensed until the 20th century when medications started to become mass-produced by drug manufacturers.

News just in from our client, Matthew D. Hepler about How to Tell if You Have a Spinal Infection

Spinal infection is a serious condition that occurs when bacteria, fungi, or viruses invade the spinal tissue. Fortunately, spinal infections are a rare condition. That said, it is important to understand how serious it can be because treatment is critical.

The pathogens can impact any area of the spine, including the vertebrae, spinal discs, meninges, spinal canal, or the spinal cord. Infections can grow slowly, so some patients do not even know they have a spinal infection.

This article will cover important information you need to know about spinal infections to better understand diagnosis, treatment, and why it is so important to be treated as soon as possible.

Latest update from our client, Pinnacle Orthopaedics

Scoliosis is caused by a curve of the spine to one side. Though it can occur in any part of the spine, it is most common in the upper and lower back. Scoliosis is much more common in females than males.

Often patients are unaware they have scoliosis. However, in some cases, it can cause patients to lean to one side or have uneven shoulders or hips due to the curvature.

Usually, patients do not need treatment because the curve is minimal and does not progress further. However, if the curve is significant enough, it may be recommended to treat it by wearing a back brace and physical therapy.

An orthopedic spine doctor can help diagnose and treat scoliosis to achieve the best possible outcome. In rare cases, the patient may need surgery. This is usually when the patient is experiencing significant pain or reduced ability to participate in usual activities.

News just in from our client, OSC Panther Creek about Hip Dislocation Symptoms, Causes, and Treatment Options

Your hips consist of a ball and socket joint that mainly provides stability and function to the body. It has a cup-like structure called the acetabulum, which stabilizes the femur (thighbone) together with a network of surrounding muscles and ligaments.

This structure helps the hip joints bear the weight of your entire upper body while facilitating flexibility and mobility. So you can imagine why trauma and injuries in the pelvic area, like a dislocation, are deemed an emergency, requiring immediate medical assistance.

Read on below to know more about hip dislocation, its symptoms, leading causes, and what to do during such situations.

Check out our client, Neulife Rehab updated blog post about Check out our updated blog post about Brain Injury Rehab Florida - National Brain Injury Awareness Month:

Brain Injury Rehab Florida – The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that more than 3.6 million Americans (children and adults) have sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury). Moreover, nearly 795,000 people have suffered an acquired brain injury (ABI) from non-traumatic causes. The data is terrifying, especially taking into account all the effects brain injuries have on the injured and their families.

Some of the physical and cognitive impacts of TBI may be permanent, but that doesn’t mean that we cannot do anything more to help TBI patients. There are actually a LOT of things that we can do to help bring back quality and a sense of normalcy to the patients’ and families’ lives. One great example is by supporting the National Brain Injury Awareness Month.

For more than three decades, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has proudly led the nation in observing National Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an engaging public awareness campaign in March of each year. The theme for this year’s campaign is #MoreThanMyBrainInjury.

The #MoreThanMyBrainInjury public awareness campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. Individuals who join us to help raise awareness with the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign are essential to:

To honor this year’s Brain Injury Month, here are some simple ways how you can participate and help spread awareness.

Check out our client, Florida Foot and Ankle latest blog post about Bunions: All you need to know

If you have noticed a change in the joint of your big toe, you may have a bunion. Bunions most often affect the big toe and cause the toe to incline towards the second toe instead of staying straight ahead. Because it pushes the big toe towards the second toe, it causes the joint to push out.

Bunions can be painful and keep you from walking and exercising. The good news is bunions are treatable.

The condition is usually seen in adults. The condition may be due to a problem with the bones of the foot. The type of shoe you wear can increase the risk but not directly cause bunions.

Though usually seen in the big toe, it can also occur in the little toe. This is known as a “tailor’s bunion.”

This article will look at what happens if you leave a bunion untreated, the fastest way to get rid of a bunion and if a bunion can correct itself.
