Yes: Absolutely! i used the technique of manual expression for both of my children and it was awesome.

Is a diabetic insulin pump with the new attachable 24-7 glucose monitor more convenient than traditional insulin pumps?
Yes, and better: The continuous glucose monitoring systems represent a tremendous advance in the ability for Insulin controlled diabetics. Although they still need to check a few times a day to calibrate the meter, the continuous monitoring allows the system to anticipate trends, such as falling glucose levels and adjust the pump rate accordingly. With attention to diet and good training, the system is much safer. ...Read more

Temporary: Use of suction pumps can provide a short term fullness increase due to engorgement of blood vessels in the area under pressure. This will not last, as the breast tissues typically quickly return to pre-existing levels. Some use brava pumps to help with breast reconstruction after mastectomies, but when suction removed, fat grafting is placed immediately to provide the structural support needed. ...Read more

Stop panicking: It isn't reasonable to expect every transient symptom to have an exact precise explanation. Any answer would be an educated guess only. What matters is what it ISN'T. What it DOESN'T sound like is dangerous or worrisome. If it isn't any better or worse after 1-3 yr, it probably is nothing to worry about. But the person to listen to closest is the doctor who knows you personally. ...Read more

Good for some: Just like most other aspects of diabetes management there is no "right" answer to whether a pump is good for you. If you need additional flexibility in your Insulin dosing and don't mind being tethered to a device 24 hours a day and your insurance will pay for it then a pump may be a good option. If you are well-controlled on Insulin injections it may not be necessary. Ask your doctors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: For smaller volume increases, fat transfer works as well as implants. However for larger volumes, it may take several stages and is more difficult to get the same result as an implant. It also depends on the amount of breast tissue you start with, because fat transfer needs some tissue to survive. Generally speaking, it is more economical to get implants. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably: Use of the brava type suction systems for creating additional space and vascular supply is most commonly used in post-mastectomy patients in preparation for expansion of tissues for grafting or implants. It's technology should function the same in males, but males often have less fat tissues to glandular, limiting the ability to modify the adipose tissues (expansion) and it's blood supply to area. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
