How much does a surgery for gynecomastia work to remove the problem?

How much does a surgery for gynecomastia work to remove the problem?

Well : I have found that gynecomastia, if persistent, is very effetcively treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposculpture surgery alone may suffice. For patients with excess skin, common after weight loss, skin excision may also be necesary. ...Read more

Can a dentist tell me the benefits of rpe (regenerative periodontal endoscopy) and if it applies in any way to dental abscess intervention.

Can a dentist tell me the benefits of rpe (regenerative periodontal endoscopy) and if it applies in any way to dental abscess intervention.

New & Limited: The benefit of rpe is to avoid performing conventional periodontal flap surgery. Whether or not it is effective enough to replace mainstream treatment methods, in my opinion, still remains to be seen. Even the dentists who use this method report some limitations to its use. An abscess is an infection, which based upon the cause requires different methods to treat it accordingly. ...Read more

How do I deal with compounding health problems after colon removal due to u.C. Complications?

If i ask 4 discectomy to treat l5s1 disc protusion over pysio/injection for quick fix.Will a doc listen/overule me.Long treatment will loose my  job?
