Hair loss is traumatic for both men and women, and the prospect of limited options to do something about it can make sufferers feel helpless. That doesn’t have to be the case; Rumer Cosmetic Surgery can help you restore your luxurious head of natural hair with advanced, automated technology! The NeoGraft Hair Transplant System uses FUE (follicular unit extraction) technology, the least invasive technique available! The Neograft uses FDA-approved vacuum technology and is calibrated to gently and accurately extract follicular units. Larger volumes of hair can be grafted at a single session. As a result, when compared to other hair transplant techniques, it is less painful, less invasive, has decreased overall cost, has much higher percentage of hair regrowth, and there are no scalpels, sutures, or linear scars involved. It gives the patient superior, natural-looking results. The procedure is performed in our state-of-the-art surgical facility. The area will be marked with temporary ink to outline the desired result and the patient will be asked to verify that all markings are to their satisfaction. The FUEs will be extracted from the donor site after the area has been numbed with local anesthesia. Once all the FUEs have been extracted, the area of the head will be numbed with local anesthesia and the grafts will be implanted. When the procedure is completed, you will have a bandage on the donor site, which can even be hidden by growing your hair long enough to camouflage it. You go home that same day with minimal pain!

A key element of Dr. Kathy Rumer’s skin revitalization treatments is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), an extracted component of a patient’s own blood, which is used in different applications to stimulate growth, such as our exclusive OMG Facial. At our state-of-the-art facility on Philadelphia’s Main Line, PRP is used to treat wrinkles and revitalize facial skin because it contains five times more platelets, growth factors and active protiens for tissue and injury healing. Historically, PRP has been used to accelerate the healing and growth of muscles, tendons and ligaments. Dr. Rumer also uses PRP in her trademarked OMG Shot for libido enhancement and incontinence treatment.

Excited to see the results of your male reduction mammaplasty? The key is patience. After your male reduction mammaplasty surgery, you will likely experience temporary swelling in the tissues of the chest as your body recovers from the surgery.
This temporary swelling may make it appear as though less tissue was removed than you were hoping for. However, if you remember to have patience, then you’ll be richly rewarded with the final results of the procedure once the swelling ameliorates.
Dr. Kathy Rumer, a board-certified plastic surgeon well-versed in male reduction mammaplasty, will offer recommendations on the best methods of keeping swelling down and making sure it reduces in a timely manner.

Have you noticed an unusual, misshapen look to your breasts following breast augmentation surgery? This may be an indicator of capsular contracture. If you’re experiencing this or another issue with your breasts, revision breast surgery can be a highly effective solution.
Along with the unusual look, breasts experiencing capsular contracture may feel painful and possibly stiff. The reason for this has to do with scar tissue. With capsular contracture, the scar tissue of the capsule – a shell of scar tissue that the body normally creates around a breast implant – is too thick.
To fix capsular contracture during revision breast surgery, your plastic surgeon may perform alterations on the scar tissue capsule, or it may be taken out completely. To find out more about possible solutions to breast-related issues, contact our office and create an appointment. Dr. Kathy Rumer, a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, will speak to you about your breast issues and recommend a revision breast surgery solution.
A forehead lift is able to solve numerous skin laxity issues, including lateral hooding. Are you experiencing lateral hooding?
Lateral hooding is when the skin tissue located between the upper eyelid and the eyebrow sags downward, creating a hood-like appearance. As people age, this condition can occur, causing discomfort and making them look tired. The forehead lift can solve this issue by tightening the skin of the area.
For more information regarding lateral hooding and forehead lifts, contact our office and we’ll set up a date and time for an appointment. You’ll be able to speak with Dr. Kathy Rumer, a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Post-operative care is an important aspect of male breast reduction. Without the proper care, the results of your procedure will not be optimal, and the required healing period may take longer than necessary. Thus, it’s always best to practice proper post-operative care.
Because anesthesia is involved with male breast reduction surgery, you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you home afterwards. It’s best to arrange for this prior to the procedure. You may also need them to help you with tasks for one to two days, since your tissues will be weakened and still healing.
For more information regarding post-operative care directions for your male breast reduction, it’s best to arrange a consultation with a qualified medical professional who can answer all of your questions.
