About EBM

Do you know the word EBM? EBM is an abbreviation for Evidence Based Medicine, which is a concept that has been used for a long time in clinical medicine, including plastic surgery. The details are given to the book, but to put it briefly, it is natural thinking that scientifically accepted treatment method is used according to the result such as clinical trials carried out by a reliable method.
However, this way of thinking has not necessarily been followed in the field of medical treatment for non-insurance covered cosmetic treatments. For example, if we say treatment not dependent on EBM, we cured several patients with this treatment method, for example, this method is a unique treatment developed at our hospital, etc. However, it is not supported by data of harsh clinical trials I will do.

I think that this problem will also be found in the treatment site of beauty care, but unfortunately also in the field of regenerative medicine, (unauthorized) cancer treatment, gene therapy and others. We hope you will be a smart customer and accept only EBM.

Breast augmentation and lymphoma (part 3)

Although it is rare but when a breast augment implant bag was used in breast augmentation and reconstructive surgery after breast cancer surgery, a special lymphoma subsequently occurred in patients who had a textured type surface roughened type bag inserted. We have stated in the past that there is a slightly higher possibility than general population.

It is reported that this issue is becoming a big social issue in the USA today in the New York Times electronic version of the major newspaper in the USA. For details, please refer to the following site.

Breast augmentation and lymphoma (part 2)

We informed previously in the part 1 of this title, but the relevance between the implant (bag) used for breast augmentation and T lymphoma has been reported in Europe and the United States. This phenomenon is likely to happen when holding a breast augmentation bag for more than 10 years in the body, especially on a textured type product whose surface is rough. Actually, this Textured type is a kind of breast enlargement bag that is often used in breast rebuilding after breast cancer.

The textured type was said to have less effect of so-called capsule contracture, which makes it harder for the breast and stiffer than the Smooth type with smooth surface. However, on the other hand, it was also known that bacteria settled in the surface roughness, creating a phenomenon called infected biofilm.

The most important thing is that patients who have this breast enlarged bag in their body once palpated by themselves and feel uncomfortable, we recommend that you consult a specialist and perform MRI examination .

Liposuction for men and women – the differences

With regard to liposuction of tummy (abdomen), we need to think separately for men and women. In general, abdominal fat of females accumulates outside the abdominal wall (subcutaneous of the stomach), and it is suitable for liposuction. On the other hand, as a man’s stomach is represented by the expression “metabolic belly”, it is often stored inside the abdominal wall, that is, between the intestines and organs (visceral fat), as it is represented by the expression of metabolic belly, There are few parts that can be taken with suction.
There are men who often misunderstand liposuction as weight loss surgery. In the case of men, improvement of dietary habits, exercise, change of stress, and sometimes diet medication may be more effective than liposuction although some men are still qualified for localized liposuction procedures.
