Doctor's answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Worried about the answers I’ve received. Do I need a lift to reach my goal outcome?
Do not drop the fold
Aug 19, 2020
The inframammary fold is important for the proper position of your breast., DO NOT destroy the fold to avoid a lift. That opens the door to all kinds of breast problems.
I’m hoping to do an above the muscle augmentation that’s very modest (using approx. 200c). Is
Over the muscle implant
May 12, 2020
This is entirely reasonable. The answer is a technique invented by a Brazilian professor of Plastic Surgery (Ruth Graff) called "subfascial" now the most common procedure in South America. The concept is to lift the outer covering of the chest muscle and place the implant between the muscle and the fascia. This gives the benefits of above the muscle while affording some protection from wrinkles, ripples and edge show. I personally have done over 500 with excellent results. Data from ASAPS i...
Nose deformity-upper nasal wall. What type of procedure would be recommended for the indents
Nasal problem
May 8, 2020
I would suggest you start with a hyaluronic acid filler injected into the dents. It will be gone in about 6-9 months and then you can decide if a more permanant filler is right for you or a surgical procedure.
Why do I feel like my implants are still sitting high 5 years later? What options do I have?
Implants too high
Apr 29, 2020
I agree you implants are too high and slightly uneven. If you have a doc who has the Aspen system (usually used for capsular contracture), you could do Aspen with aggressive massage and banding at night. Even though it has been four years this can still move implants. If this isn't available you would need surgical correction. That would consist of lowering the inframammary fold and closing the top edge of the pocket. You can probably keep your implants.
Would my nose be a good candidate for a rhinoplasty? What would you suggest?
Apr 29, 2020
I think you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty. My suggestions would include refining the tip with a modest tip plasty, lowering and narrowing the nasal dorsum. Not difficult surgery but consult with a board certified surgeon with a lot of rhinoplasty experience
is it normal when having liposuction with general anesthesia to burn during the procedure?
Liposuction complications
Apr 21, 2020
Under "general anesthesia" you are asleep and don't feel anything. If you have burning and numbness after the procedure that is a different question. Both burning and numbness are not unusual complications which usually resolve in a few months although the numbness can take up to a year. A better question is why do you need the same area repeated. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon and discuss these items.
Would you recommend upper and lower blepharoplasty and eyelid lift?
Angry look
Mar 23, 2020
Your eyelids could use a blepharoplasty, but what concerns you is your angry look. That can only be addressed by repositioning your brows. An endoscopic browlift will take away the angry look an partially or completely correct the upper lids. Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon with endoscopic experience. Older or direct browlift are not as good.
When making a large nose smaller how exactly is that accomplished?
Nose reduction
Mar 23, 2020
Basically, all areas of the nose need attention. The nasal bones and the cartilages. Your tent analogy is interesting but tents aren't made up of living and stretching skin. an overall plan must be in place and discussed with you prior to the start of the surgery. Unless you are older, the skin takes care of itself except in very rare cases.There are logical sequences that when followed will deliver a consistently good result. This is advanced rhinoplastic surgery and anyone that you co...
What would you suggest for severe breast asymmetry? I have multiple questions
Severe breast Asymmetry
Mar 20, 2020
I would suggest an augmentation on the smaller side with optional augment to the larger side. The larger side will need a lift and areolar reduction which could probably be accomplished with a peri-areolar lift (make certain it is the new technique with Gore-Tex sutures). Make certain your board certified surgeon has done a lot of these.
9 year old implants, breast fed two babies! Would an implant exchange be enough?
Asymmetrical augmentation
Mar 3, 2020
First check your labels from the implants and make certain they are the same size. Then decide which breast (if either) you like best. Presuming you like the right it is not difficult to drop the left implant surgically. If you want to change both, careful expansion of the pocket should take care of the asymmetry.
What surgery or approach for my tuberous or swooping breasts is best to achieve a fuller appe
No tuberous breast
Feb 26, 2020
You would do well with  a simple breast augmentation. I would suggest a subfascial implantation rather than other techniques since it does give lift and "refill". Other techniques can emphasize the sagging and necessitate an additional surgery.
Had 2 septoplasties but the bottom is still a bit crooked. Can it be fixed it or is it too da
septum problem
Feb 13, 2020
If "bottom" means the part of the septum closest to your upper lip and your overall breathing is good. It would not be dangerous and there are several simple options depending on the severity. A good "worm's eye view" would make an answer more accurate.
What is wrong with my breasts? Tuberous, pectus or something else? Can they be fixed with a l
breast concerns
Feb 12, 2020
First of all you have severe ptosis or sag of your breasts. Correction of pectus deformity is a big deal and rarely performed unless the deformity interferes with heart function. I think you would get a very acceptable result with a mastopexy and perhaps a small implant. Augmentation (even modest) is a better choice for pectus deformity (but not perfect).
I'm interested in fixing my tuberous breasts, but am not comfortable with implants, is it pos
Tuberous breast
Feb 12, 2020
The easiest solution is small breast implants. Alternative solution would be peri-areolar mastopexy. This will give you the look you want with a small reduction in the size of the areola. Make certain the surgeon uses the technique with GoreTex suture which has less complications.
Why is my right breast higher but the nipple is lower even after scar tissue was released? Ho
Asymmetric breasts
Feb 12, 2020
Your left breast is "bottoming out". The implant has dropped too low on your chest and needs to be lifted to correct the situation.
