Would I be able to get away with only working on the tip of my nose, or would I have to do a full rhi
Rhinoplasty
Feb 10, 2017
It is best to undergo a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. This way you can have your needs addressed. Photos can be taken and a physical examination rendered to determine what you really need and want to achieve.
What are some vitamins that I should take before surgery?
Use of vitamins
Feb 10, 2017
I definitely recommend a multiple vitamin as well as Vitamin C 500 mg twice a day. This helps to boost your immune system and aids in your healing. You can begin this regimen a month prior to your surgery.
Can I drink alcohol 1 month after breast augmentation?
Postop breast augmentation
Feb 10, 2017
Always consult your plastic surgeon before making the decision to consume alcohol. Make sure you are not taking prescription pain medications and alcohol. Caffeine can be consumed at any time.
If getting a revision due to capsular contracture, does it cost the same as getting your breast augme
Breast implant revision
Feb 10, 2017
Usually either removing the capsule or opening the capsule costs less than the breast augmentation. You can definitely go bigger at that time but you will have to pay for the implant. Hopes this helps in your decision.
What kind of tummy tuck will I need?
Extended vs regular tummy tuck
Feb 10, 2017
It really is difficult to know what kind of tummy tuck you will need because a physical examination is necessary. Also you mentioned a body lift but your photos do not revel your back to determine this. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon so you can make the right decision.
Lipo or Tummy Tuck?
Lopo vs tummy tuck
Feb 10, 2017
A physical examination is really necessary to determine if you have separation of the abdominal wall muscles. I would suspect this since you have two children. Also you have excess skin with stretch marks. No amount of liposuction will help with this. Based on this, I would advise a tummy tuck but you need to consult a plastic surgeon to be sure.
Breast augmentation. When do breasts begin to feel soft and drop?
Postop breast augmentation
Feb 10, 2017
I really don't know what kind of exercises you are doing because it is just time and healing which need to occur to allow the breasts to drop. You must be patient. It takes up to a year for this to happen. Don't do vigorous massage as this could cause deformity. 
Canthoplasty 3 years post-op: left with dimple.
Postop canthoplasty
Feb 10, 2017
It is difficult to know exactly what is going on with this dimple in your cheek. Perhaps the "suture" just needs to be removed and the skin elevated where the dimple occurred. You should consult your plastic surgeon.
What is the best way to reduce the visibility of a rhinoplasty columella scar?
Postop open rhinoplasty
Feb 10, 2017
Columellar incisions always need special attention when closing. Because they are visible, we as plastic surgeons maintain precise closure methods to achieve almost an invisible scar. If your scars are visible, they may need revision. The other techniques you mentioned on,y go so far.
6 weeks post-op: Is my implant out of place?
Postop breast augmentation
Feb 10, 2017
I agree that your breasts look asymmetrical. If a hematoma occurs, scar tissue develops. If the hematoma required drainage 3 times, intense scar tissue could have occurred. The reason you like the right breast over the left breast is because it is lifted. You need a breast lift to achieve the results you really want.
I just had a Tummy tuck and my doctor say not to shower till my drain is out. Can I take a shower whi
Post op tummy tuck
Sep 15, 2016
Always follow your surgeon's advice as he/she may have reasons for what they suggest in the postoperative period.
One side of my nose is lower, how can they fix that?
Nostril asymmetry
Aug 17, 2016
Although your nostril asymmetry is slight, the right one can be lowered to match the left one. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon.
Muscle Contraction after Tummy Tuck. What is causing this? Can anything be done?
Muscle contraction after tummy tuck
Aug 17, 2016
I have never seen this after a tummy tuck and it may not be related to your surgery. Consult your plastic surgeon to be sure.
Upper arm lift; How long do you need to wear the sleeves?
Post op arm lift
Aug 17, 2016
After an arm lift, I recommend that patients wear their sleeves for 4-6 weeks. It helps to decrease the swelling and helps in the healing process.
My eyelid has changed in the past 9 months. Please help! So confused.
Ptosis of eyelid
Aug 17, 2016
Sometimes ptosis can be more pronounced during times of stress. Ptosis means the eyelid is droopy. It does not mean your eye is pushed forward. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon who can examine you.
