I have fat pouches on each side of my upper lip in the moustache area. Kind of like a cat. My father had the same thing he just wore a moustache his whole life. Is there anything I can do other than grow hair over it?
At times fat pouches can be removed with an incision inside the mouth, but that is not always possible. When large pouches are removed, the skin can end up being a little loose though. During a facelift procedure,, fat pouches are removed. It is hard to say if your pouches can be easily removed without seeing you in person.
Dear Dr. Garcia, a while ago, you suggested I try turmeric for joint inflammation. I've been taking it for about 6 weeks now and have noticed no difference; in fact, the crepitus is just as loud as ever. I'll keep trying the turmeric, but I wonder if I should add tart cherry capsules. I've read a bit of research suggesting that they too might be strong anti-inflammatories. What do you think? I'm happy to try these things, but they are expensive and if they're not going to work -- or to work so minimally as to be clinically insignificant-- then I hate to spending all this money needlessly. Thanks so much! You're amazing.
the cherry is also good, as well as avoiding gluten. Apple cider vinegar is also used. If you have crepitus it is likely just more than swelling though and inflammation. I might be some loose fragments of torn cartilage in there that are causing continuous irritation and then inflammation. Might be time for a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon.
