After decades of practicing as an award winning, board certified plastic surgeon, I still consider it a great honor to receive new awards and recognitions for my contributions to medical science and the community at large. This year, I am delighted to be the recipient of the La Jolla Village News 2012 Reader’s Choice Awards Gold Award for Best Plastic Surgeon. While I have had the honor of being selected for this award in the past, and received similar recognition over the years both in La Jolla, Temecula Valley and throughout San Diego, every new award reinforces my dedication to the art and science of plastic surgery, and inspires me to continue improving my services for the sake of my patients.
Here in San Diego, we have a thriving military community – one in which the need for high-quality medical care is coupled with unique challenges such as frequent deployments, on-call assignments, dependant spouses and children, veteran status and so on. When it comes to military plastic surgery – be it for active duty personnel, their families, veterans, military personnel transitioning out of the service or retirees – it takes a certain familiarity with the military lifestyle to provide the very best possible care. Cosmetic plastic surgery is an important service for the San Diego military community. As is the case with any surgical procedure, it is important to seek out the right board certified plastic surgeon in order to achieve the safest and most natural successful results.
What is male breast reduction surgery? The procedure is designed to serve male patients with distinctly feminine-looking breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, gynecomastia affects between 40-60% of the male population, and is far more prevalent than many people realize. While a large number of gynecomastia cases are prompted by unknown causes, some factors – including steroids, medications containing estrogen, cancer, reduced liver function and excessive use of alcohol and marijuana – have been linked to male breast enlargement. Regardless of the source, gynecomastia can be safely and effectively treated using plastic surgery techniques. However, it is critical for all prospective patients to consult a board certified plastic surgeon before electing to undergo surgery.
