If you spend your day doing tasks that involve repetitive hand motions, like knitting or typing on a computer, you are at risk for carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition develops when pressure is put on the median nerve of the wrist and can cause pain, weakness, and numbness. Eventually, carpal tunnel syndrome can be debilitating and may require surgery.
At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Perlman, has been performing reconstructive hand surgery for conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome for over two decades. You can reduce your risk of developing this invasive condition with these tips:
Maintain Good Health Carpal tunnel syndrome is associated with a number of other health concerns, like obesity, arthritis, hypothyroidism, and diabetes. Aiming for a healthy weight and taking medications to control these other illnesses may help reduce your risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you perform tasks that require repetitive hand motions, or if you work with vibrating machinery like a sander, be sure to take frequent breaks to give your hands and wrists a rest. Your doctor may also recommend stretches, exercises, and tips for maintaining the right posture and hand placement as you work to reduce your odds of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. Make sure your workstation and chair are as ergonomically designed as possible.
The longer you let the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome progress without seeking treatment, the more likely you are to need hand surgery. As soon as symptoms appear, see a cosmetic surgeon who is qualified to perform hand surgery for evaluation and advice about how to control your symptoms.
If you do need surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome, turn to Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre for treatment. You can make an appointment by calling (281) 205-4006. In addition to hand surgery, we offer liposuction, facelifts, breast implants, and other effective procedures. Schedule your appointment today.
If your large breasts are causing you pain and lowering your self-esteem, the time to have breast reduction surgery is now. This cosmetic surgery procedure can be life-changing for women with breasts that are too large for their frames. If you’d like to reduce the size of your bust but have been putting off surgery, here are a few reasons why you should call your cosmetic surgeon today:
Large breasts can cause you to hunch over, compressing your spine and triggering pain up and down your back and neck. Rashes from chafing and fungal infections underneath the breasts can also cause pain. After breast reduction surgery, your persistent pain is likely to vanish.
Have More Clothing Options
Having breasts that are oversized or disproportionate to your frame limits your clothing choices. Button-down blouses are next to impossible to wear, and you may have to select shirts in larger sizes to accommodate your breasts, making the clothing too big and baggy elsewhere. Imagine how exciting it would be to go out and grab clothes off the rack with the confidence that they will fit. This is what breast reduction surgery can do for you.
Boost Your Self-Esteem
One of the things many people overlook about having overlarge, uncomfortable breasts is the toll it can take on self-confidence. Many women feel embarrassed by the size of their breasts. Bringing your breast size in-line with the rest of your body is likely to give you more confidence, which can improve everything from your working life to your personal relationships.
At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, we can help you get rid of pain and reclaim your self-esteem with breast reduction surgery. In addition to breast surgeries, we offer nose jobs, implants, facelifts, liposuction, and more at our Houston office. Call (281) 205-4006 to schedule a consultation.

I had a full breast lift here at Dr. Perlman's office and at first I was a little concerned about the scars but I trusted him and his staff and I can say that I am truly glad that I did. It hasn't even been 6 months and the incisions are looking great. My clothes look better on and I am very happy with my results and his staff was so very kind...
Dear Dr. Perlman and Staff, I wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for the amazing care I have received at your office from start to finish. I have never felt as happy with myself as I do now. I look in the mirror and absolutely love who I see looking back at me. Thank you for the amazing new me!
