Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the 'donor site', to a bald or balding part of the body known as the 'recipient site'. The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness.

Here's an impressive demonstration of what inflation of the lungs look like! 
This pair of tiny lungs get inflated like a balloon thanks to its elastic properties.
An elastic material is one that tends to return to its initial state after the removal of a deforming force. 
As the lungs are inflated, there is an accompanying increase in the energy stored within the elastic tissues of the lungs, just like a stretched rubber band. 
A pathological loss of elasticity of the lungs, such as in case of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (commonly emphysema), leads to hyperinflation, where normal air expulsion is affected and air is getting trapped inside lung.

Study Shows Maternal Bonds With Baby Are Stronger Than We Ever Imagined! ️
.
We've known forever that the bonds between mom and baby run deeper, stronger and more fluid than anyone could ever begin to explain. Now, new research proves that there's a physical connection, more interconnected and integral to our being than anyone ever imagined. As mom carries baby during pregnancy and shares a physical connection through the placenta, cells can travel freely between mom and baby (by way of the placenta). And while human intellect has us intent on believing that we are autonomous individuals, it's impossible to deny the fact that so many of the cells that passed between mom and baby during gestation stay there — forever.
.
Their impact and purpose may be entirely a guessing game at this point, but the study went on to show that microchimeric cells are not only found circulating in the blood, but they're also embedded in the brain.

The “Hoffman sign” refers to the results of the Hoffman test. This test is used to determine whether your fingers or thumbs flex involuntarily in response to certain triggers.
.
A positive result occurs when your index finger and thumb flex quickly and involuntarily right after the middle finger is flicked. It’ll feel as if they’re trying to move towards each other. This reflexive movement is called opposition.
.
A positive Hoffman’s sign may indicate that you have a neurological or nervous system condition that affects the cervical spine nerves or brain,in this case multiple sclerosis.

Resin cast of human heart blood vessels!!!
This model was achieved by injecting liquid plastic into a real heart. The plastic resin fills the blood vessels and, once the resin sets, the tissue is dissolved away leaving a perfect replica of the blood supply of the heart!

This heart is only kept alive by machines and is about to be exchanged with a new donor heart!
.
A heart transplant is an operation in which a failing, diseased heart is replaced with a healthier, donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that's usually reserved for people who have tried medications or other surgeries, but their conditions haven't sufficiently improved.

The no-touch technique of breast implant insertion is a well-described method to minimize skin contamination, which is thought to be a significant cause of capsular contracture after implant-based breast augmentation.
“Look Mom! No Hands”   .
.
By reducing contact it significantly reduces the chances for bacterial or foreign body contamination to the implant prior to placement.

The thread-like worm Loa Loa swimming around inside the eye! 
This was taken prior to the surgical removal of a loa loa worm from the subconjunctival tissue of the eye. As previously discussed, Loa loa is a blood dwelling nematode that is parasitic in humans and passes through the repeated bites of deerflies. 
The adult worm wanders through the subcutaneous tissue but is most obvious as it crosses the conjunctiva of the eye hence leading to its common name, the African eye worm. Like all roundworms, Loa loa is sexual so a male and female worm must be present in the same host for a full infection to ensue. 
It can be surgically removed with forceps after being paralyzed with a topical anesthesia, along with antiparasitic agents.

30 year old implants in a calcified capsule!
This is why Implants needed to be changed out around every 15-20 years! This implant was hard and ruptured inside. It is very crucial to change out implants made before 1990 as the silicone implants made them were not a cohesive gel, making them dangerous upon rupture. **this is not a current cohesive gel ‘gummy bear’ implant**
.
Gummy bear breast implants are one of the options available for breast augmentation. The term “gummy bear” is actually a nickname for these teardrop-shaped, gel-based implants. They're known to retain their shape better than other types of breast implants made from saline and silicone.

Sclerotherapy is considered the treatment of choice for spider leg veins. The treatment is minimally invasive. The procedure also can improve related symptoms such as aching, swelling, burning and night cramps. Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to two months to see the full results. In some instances, several sclerotherapy treatments may be needed.
.
Depending on how far below your skin the damaged vein is, your doctor may use an ultrasound as part of the procedure.
.
There is little to no downtime associated with sclerotherapy. You’ll most likely be able to return to your everyday activities immediately.

The heart has its own electrical stimulation system, which allows it to control the rhythm. The human body is incredibly complex and at the same time interesting ️️️
.
A diseased heart removed prior to a transplant and keeping itself active even outside the body, beating peacefully on its own.
.
This video demonstrates a classic presentation of cardiac automaticity, which is the property of a specialized cardiac cells called pacemakers to generate spontaneous electrical impulse.
.
When the failing heart is removed during a transplantation and the heart loses its CNS innervation, the heart still beats, but the contraction rhythm is uncoordinated, owing to the automatic electrical impulses of the pacemaker cells. .
