Part 2! Yesterday I gave you all the history of this Latin phrase which means “trust no one”- here is a great example of why that is true, even in medicine! 👀 #AronowitzMD

Latin for "on the word of no one" or "take nobody's word for it" is the motto of the Royal Society, and I think this is very relevant with all the information whirling around the world right now! A little history lesson and a little advice bundled into a little Aronowitz rant in this post today. What do you guys think? Should we trust everything we see and hear on the news and other media outlets blindly- or should we take a step back, look at the facts and come to our own educated conclusions? 🤔 #AronowitzMD

Continuing on with our CAPSULAR CONTRACTURE series! So far, I’ve shown you what a capsular contracture looks like on the inside and outside, what causes it, how we remove the implant and capsule... now let’s make it pretty again by placing a slightly larger implant back into the pocket and performing a mastopexy aka breast lift! 🎈

Following up with our topic from yesterday, many of you asked- how does this happen? What causes it? If you’ve had radiation therapy at any time in the past — and particularly if you had it after your initial breast reconstruction surgery — that can greatly increase your risk of developing capsular contracture. But overall, the reasons that some individuals develop capsular contracture while others do not are not well understood. Some of the other factors that may raise the risk of capsular contracture include rupture of an implant, hematoma (a build-up of blood where tissue was removed during surgery), developing a microbial biofilm (subclinical infection) on an implant, and a genetic predisposition to forming scars. Watch this video to learn more! 🎈 #AronowitzMD

Capsular contracture is a breast augmentation complication that develops when internal scar tissue forms a tight or constricting capsule around a breast implant, contracting it until it becomes misshapen and hard. In this video, I will show you what that looks like on the outside, and inside! 🎈 #AronowitzMD

Good morning from AronowitzLand! This weeks #transformationtuesday was a liposuction patient and many of you asked to see what that procedure looks like... well here it is! FUN FACT!

I’ve been posting a lot of reconstructive and wound cases lately so I thought today I’d share a purely cosmetic case- BREAST AUGMENTATION! ✨ I usually show you standard before and after shots, but this is a great opportunity for you to see a before and after MID SURGERY during a breast augmentation where one breast has been implanted already, and one hasn’t been implanted yet! 💥 #AronowitzMD

It’s #TransformationTuesday in Aronowitzland! Today’s transformation comes from a very popular plastic surgery procedure- LIPOSUCTION! This procedure, sometimes referred to as "lipo" by patients, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion ⚡️ #AronowitzMD

You all seemed to really enjoy the information about CADAVER SKIN for BURN WOUNDS I posted yesterday, so here’s a little bit more footage from that appointment! For those of you that missed it, Allograft, cadaver skin or homograft is human cadaver skin donated for medical use. Cadaver skin is used as a temporary covering for excised (cleaned) wound surfaces such as for this patient who burned himself with an electric kettle ☕️ Does anybody else find this healing process #oddlysatisfying ?! 🔥 #AronowitzMD

This weeks #TransformationTuesday has explosive results! 🧨 This patient had an unfortunate incident with some fireworks on the 4th of July 💥 After just a few weeks of a specialized wound care regimen at my facility (Tower Wound Care) you can already see a huge difference in these burns! At Tower Wound Care, we see all kinds of wounds- diabetic ulcers, simple and complex lacerations, even gunshot wounds. Shout out and credit to Dr Olson and our Tower Culver City staff for great care! 🩹 #AronowitzMD

Clearly we have WAY too much fun in Aronowitzland! IPL is just as the name states: An intense, visible, broad-spectrum light that heats and destroys brown spots, melasma, broken capillaries, and sun spots. It’s not painful (as you can see in this video with @busybeingbridget!) and it’s got minimal to no down time ⚡️ #AronowitzMD
