Am I a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift? I feel like my butt is saggy and dropping further everyday. This not only makes me feel bad about my appearance but hurts my overall self-image. Can the Brazilian butt lift help me?

Am I a candidate for a Brazilian butt lift? I feel like my butt is saggy and dropping further everyday. This not only makes me feel bad about my appearance but hurts my overall self-image. Can the Brazilian butt lift help me?

Probably: A BBL might help you round out the sagging, but there's no way to really tell without a consultation. Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.

You: You should be seen by your doctor and have an ultrasound. An ultrasound is the best way typically to determine if a woman has ovarian cysts. Also if there is any chance you could be pregnant then please take a test. If you have worse pain, think you are pregnant, or have vomiting or fever then you should be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Hello doc. I'm an 18 yr old teenager. Recently I had a pricky feel on the upper part of my private area n a lot of discharge from the area. It feels itchy when touched n sometimes I urinate frequently. I'm worried. Pls help?

See your doctor: I have further clarifying questions I would like to ask, but that isn't possible in this format That is a good sign that you should be seen by a local physician who can ask questions and examine you. Don't be worried, instead be responsible for your own health and be seen. Although what you describes make me first think yeast infection, a sexually transmitted dz would need to be ruled out. ...Read more

Went to dr from abdominal pain they said I am pregnant I have had my tubes tied for 20 years they did a ultrasound and seen nothing my levels did go down from 840 to 780 what is going on I’m so confused please help?

Confusing: The picture is confusing for sure.
You're 42, and have abdominal pain, and you've been told you're pregnant--the HCG numbers seem to be going down. I feel you should be evaluated further by CT or MRI. It's very difficult to say at this point what's going on without an examination ...Read more

My boyfriend is depressed and I would like to help him through it. But he is shutting everyone out including me. I've tried helping him by trying to make him laugh I stuff I know he would laugh at but he won't. I've also tried to get him to open up but he

My boyfriend is depressed and I would like to help him through it. But he is shutting everyone out including me. I've tried helping him by trying to make him laugh I stuff I know he would laugh at but he won't. I've also tried to get him to open up but he

Get him help: He may feel that there is no use in trying to get help. The base thing you can do is to tell him that hope and help are available and that depression is treatable and then get him, if you can, to see his family doctor, a psychiatrist or a therapist that will manage his total treatment plan. Best wishes to the both of you. ...Read more

I know a friend who have Asperger and he is feeling down I would like to help him. Would it be an idea to talk to him about getting ssri? Thanks

I know a friend who have Asperger and he is feeling down I would like to help him. Would it be an idea to talk to him about getting ssri? Thanks

Yes - talk is good: The real answer is "it depends". Perhaps all your friend needs is your company, shoulder & ear to share concerns. Unfortunately, it's tricky finding right ssri for each individual. Worse, ssris don't work for everyone. Even so, they shouldn't be dismissed out of hand but preferably used in conjunction w/professional counseling. But in the end, you can never have too many friends. ...Read more

Depends!: Usually unnatural to like pain, and called masochism. If the pain is from an illness, or hurting yourself, you should seek some guidance!

So it depends on what you are talking about. ...Read more
