The typical scenario is a woman who has always been proud of the care she has taken of her body. She has eaten right, exercised, and then goes through the childbirth experience.

Suddenly, she has a bouncing baby to care for, as well. She continues to eat right and exercise as much as she can. Typically, she nurses her baby for multiple months and really enjoys the bonding experience. Her body is slimming according to nature’s timetable, and her boobs seem full and lovely due to the ongoing milk supply.

At some point, a time which varies with personal choice, the new mother decides to wean her baby. If this is her first baby, she is in for a rude surprise. With the drying up of that final milk, she is suddenly faced with two unrecognizable protrusions on her chest.

Her boobs are not only empty of their pregnancy and lactating plumpness, but they are often smaller and of a different shape than even before pregnancy. What’s a mommy to do? Often, a woman will adjust. Perhaps she will pad her bra, wear a push up device or may try various personal training methods that include chest muscle building exercises.

But guess what? She is gradually left with the dawning realization that this is to be her new personal body experience, that of being a relatively flat chested woman.

Not only do the boobs smaller, but they too often resemble balloons that have shriveled over time. The unfortunate fact is, American culture is not so kind to the flat chest woman. We like our women curvy and voluptuous.

The loss of breast size and robustness is a hard adjustment in our society. Many women suffer wounded self esteem, marital problems, and no longer look attractive in and out of their clothes.

Many mommies decide that when they’ve finally given birth to their last child, they will treat themselves to the huge self esteem boost of breast augmentation. It’s a gift that they give to themselves.

What does a breast augmentation entail? The surgeon makes an incision in either the armpit area, under the nipple or below the breast. Each of these incision sites are designed to make the scar nearly invisible.

Next, an implant is placed either under the tissue or behind the pectoral muscle wall. The implant is a curved device that is filled with either a saline solution or a silicon solution. Each of these choices is made depending on physician and patient preference, body type, age, skin and results desired.

At the end, after their recovery, mommies report being very happy campers. They have their healthy and loveable growing children, their once again lusty husbands, and most importantly, pleasure at having their attractive bodies and breasts back.

breast reduction surgery

Breast reduction though a part of cosmetic plastic surgery is not carried out for cosmetic improvements rather for physical relief. Some women go in for breast enlargement or breast augmentation to feel more confident of their body, whereas some women are painfully conscious of enormous breasts and find it embarrassing in public.

Large breasts could be hereditary or a medical condition, breast reduction surgery is also performed to correct asymmetry, sagging etc. Reduction in the weight and size of enormous breasts relieves the person of pain in the shoulders, neck and back. Too much of weight can also lead to skeletal deformation and breathing problems.

Surgery is generally not advised till the breasts are fully developed, teenagers who tend to think the large size is a big problem are told to wait till a mature age, as the body develops the size may not seem out of proportion and they may accept their body better.

The procedure of the surgery involves removal of fat, mammary gland, tissue and skin. It is more risky than breast enlargement, as we are not adding but removing natural tissues and muscles from the body. The major threat is the possibility of its interfering with breast feeding in the future, which is a major problem as it may hinder the natural responses of the body when the woman is pregnant or nursing. Another cause of concern is asymmetry in the twin assets, as the procedure also includes replacing the position of the nipples and areola.

Reduction of breasts requires an incision to be made in the centre of the breasts running down to the mammary crease, this leaves a visible and permanent scar which will remain for life. Internal bleeding from the wounds may also take place, which may need another corrective surgery.

Breast reduction may prove more appealing externally but the body would have to lose a lot literally and otherwise too.

Alaska Weed

According to history books, during the late years of 1970?s, cannabis patient named Mr. Robert Randall sued the federal government for arresting him for using medicinal cannabis to treat his glaucoma. He won the case and with this, the presiding judge ruled that Randall should use cannabis for health purposes and required the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to set up a program to allow cultivating, growing, purchasing and even selling cannabis.

The judge asked the FDA to allow growing this cannabis on a farm at the University of Mississippi and to distribute 300 cannabis cigarettes a month to Randall. Meanwhile, after several years, in 1992 to be exact, US President George H. W. Bush put an end to the program after the patient, Mr. Randall tried to make AIDS patients qualified for the said program as well.

Initially, there are thirteen people were already enrolled and were allowed to continue sniffing medical cannabis cigarettes to cure their medical conditions, then few years later, the US government just shipped medical cannabis cigarettes to merely seven medicinal cannabis patients. One cannabis patient named, Mr. Irvin Rosenfeld, who during those years has received medical cannabis attention from the program since 1982 to treat his rare bone tumors, urged the George W. Bush administration to reopen the program; however, in the end he was not successful though.

During those times, the state of Alaska is the only state in the United States where possession of up to one ounce is legal. Sacramento back then was not allowed to use this medical cannabis even as an alternative medicine to cure diseases.

Medical experts in Sacramento cited the dangers of cannabis even for medical purposes. They added that the lack of clinical research supporting its medicinal value to heal various medical conditions. Meanwhile, the American Society of Addiction Medicine (SAM) in March 2011 issued a white paper recommending a halt to using marijuana as a medicine in US states where it has been declared legal. But medical patients in the Sacramento region, who has been cured by this medical cannabis, beg to disagree about the proposal done by the (SAM). Medical cannabis patients defend the benefits they get through this medical cannabis, and they would rally behind the full legalization of this alternative medicine to cure their health problems.

During Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger?s reign as the Governor of California, medical cannabis has given so much attention. He prioritized the legalization of this alternative medicine to help medical patients who are looking for alternative treatment to cure their medical conditions.
