Dr. Stephens on male breast tissue growth http://www.wbrz.com/news/dr-stephens-on-male-breast-tissue-growth/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/dr-stephens-on-male-breast-tissue-growth/ Dr. Stephens Thu, 13 Feb 2014 2:55:27 PM AE Stevenson Dr. Stephens on male breast tissue growth

BATON ROUGE - Urban legends that marijuana use could cause "man boobs" may have more truth behind it than people think.

The condition, scientifically known as gynecomastia, triggers men to grow breast tissue. There aren't many studies that can prove the legend wrong since marijuana is still largely illegal in the United States.

However, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Stephens said one study did find marijuana use throws off the body's hormone levels, and with them out of sync estrogen levels rise, triggering the growth.

If you have plastic surgery questions or topics for Dr. Stephens to consider, email them to News 2 at 4.

Recovering after plastic surgery http://www.wbrz.com/news/recovering-after-plastic-surgery/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/recovering-after-plastic-surgery/ Dr. Stephens Thu, 2 May 2013 3:12:03 PM Recovering after plastic surgery

BATON ROUGE - Dr. Stephens answered viewer questions today and talked about the recovery process after plastic surgery.

One of the things he discussed was recovery from liposuction surgery. He said bruising after liposcution can last longer if it's done on the thighs, possibly up to six weeks, instead of the abdomen, which usually lasts only two.

He also said if you're planning to hit the beach after you have a surgery, make sure enough time has passed to let the incisions completely close. He said patients can get into a shower or clean water 48 hours after their surgery, but need to wait at least a week before going to the beach or a swimming pool.
