PAH!! What to do?

Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia is a vexing and unusual sequela following Coolsculpting.

Breast augmentation surgery is optimal for patients who would like to have larger volume. The nipple position is often carried slightly lower with an implant due to the extra weight on the breast and thus some patients would like to consider a mastopexy at the same time.
