Question
Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
What are my options if I was told I needed a lift but I also want to avoid scars?
breast lift versus larger implant
Mar 8, 2020
Congratulations on doing a good job of getting back into shape after your children. You would get an improvement in your nipple position with a larger implant but you would still have some ptosis or droop and would not make it to ideal nipple position. The trade off for moving the implant above the muscle is an increased risk of capsular contracture. You may get a better one step result if you did a smaller implant and did the lift at the same time. If you...
How long is the usual time to take off work after a mommy makeover?
time to bounce back
Mar 3, 2020
If you are having an abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck) I usually recommend two weeks off of work, if it is just breast surgery I usually recommend 1 week off and 5-6 weeks from strenuous physical activity for both surgeries. Some patients might be able to make it back a little sooner but that is the exception more than the rule. You always want to wait until you have enough time down to recover and bounce back after surgery.
Best of Luck on Your Journey

What do you recommend for procedures?
Lift and lift
Feb 10, 2020
It looks like you have done a great job with weight loss after your bariatric surgery. I would recommend that if you have a hernia, that you get it repaired by a general surgeon at the time of the lower body lift or before. A hernia repair can increase the risk of loss of your belly button if not done with the plan of an abdominoplasty in mind. I think that you would get the most benefit from a lower body lift with and a secondary augmentation mastopexy. We help a lot...
Is it true that I am too young for a pre-op blood test at 29?
Preop Testing
Dec 3, 2019
Your preop testing plan should be based on a thorough preop history and physical. Many young healthy patients do not need additional preop labs unless they have a significant medical issues or a pertinent family history of issues with anesthesia etc. In the old days they ordered labs on everyone, but the yield of valuable information ended up being so low that they no longer do that for many minor surgical cases.

Is there any hope of not having a free nipple graft for a breast reduction when the distance is
Breast reduction with long breasts
Nov 17, 2019
I would recommend that you talk with another physician who does a lot of inferior pedicle breast reductions. I have done many breasts with long pedicle lengths that did just fine and had no nipple necrosis. Some people have been trained that you always need to do nipple graft and that is not the case for many patients.
Best of Luck on the Journey,

Which procedure will give the best results?
GO with the Lower body lift
Nov 17, 2019
Congratulations on getting your weight loss. Unfortunately, our skin does not always bounce back after we lose the weight and give. Luckily, there are a number of surgeries out there that can help restore things to their former glory. I would not recommend a fleur-de-lis incision unless a patient already has a large midline incision from another surgery. I think the scar is very unattractive and hard to hide. I would instead recommend either an extended tummy...

Are you able to get a lower body lift and bra line back lift at the same time?
can you combine a Lower body lift and bra line lift
Oct 23, 2019
Theoretically, you could do both procedures at one time but it would significantly increase the risk of complications, because of competing areas of tension and decreased blood supply. Therefore, I would never recommend doing both at the same time. This falls under the category of just because it can be done does not mean it is a good idea.

Should I consider a 360 body lift instead of just a tummy tuck after 112 pound weight loss? (pho
Go Low to get Great
Oct 23, 2019
Congratulations on your weight loss, that is a fantastic job and obviously required a lot of hard work. A lower body lift is a very powerful procedure and makes a dramatic difference in both the anterior and posterior appearance, but it is more intense and a little tougher recovery than just a tummy tuck. If you are bothered by your flat buttocks and excess back skin then a lower body lift with purse string gluteoplasty and some liposuction can be a dramatic procedure that...

How soon to do surgery after massive weight loss
Oct 23, 2019
Congratulations on your weight loss, that is a fantastic job and obviously required a lot of hard work. You want to be at or close to your goal weight when you have a lower body lift, because if you lose more weight after your lift you will get more loose skin and loose some of the benefit of the lower body lift. You also want your weight to be stable for 3 to 6 months and all of your nutrition parameters to be in line. A lower body lift is a very powerful procedure and...

Are there surgery options available for asymmetry in the underlying bone structure of the eye ar
orbital bone anatomy asymmetry
Oct 23, 2019
There are very complex procedures that can be performed to reshape the face and skull, but I would not recommend them for most patients and they are usually reserved for major facial deformities. This would usually fall under the category that the cost and risk would outweigh the benefits. There are some procedures that can be done to camouflage or decrease the appearance of mild facial asymmetry, but you would have to have an in-person consultation with a board...
Breast thread lifting. Is this technique realistic?
Threads Break and results are fleeting
Oct 23, 2019
I think I would be very skeptical of these claims. There have been many attempts to use threads for lifting techniques in surgery but they have been plagued by failure of the threads after 6 months to a year, or sooner in some cases. I would want to see some long term results that have been published before I would want to sign up for such a procedure. Best of Luck on Your Journey.
Am I eligible for liposuction? I'm 114 pounds, 5'2, female.
Liposuction Critical points
Oct 23, 2019
Hello and thanks for your question about liposuction. In the pictures you look like you would be a good candidate for liposuction and a breast augmentation. Liposuction could make an improvement in your lateral and in your anterior abdomen bulge if you do not have too wide of a space between your abdominal muscles. If you have a larger space between your muscles then it is harder to get a dramatic improvement without a tummy tuck. You would get an...
Is it safe to have a breast lift if I have hidradenitis suppurativa?
Get infections treated before surgery for safety.
Oct 23, 2019
HS is not a contraindication to surgery but if you are having an active flare up you should get that treated adequately before starting any new surgeries. Having an active infection elsewhere increases your risks for any other surgical procedure. I would make sure to talk about it with your surgeons and they may be able to help with your armpit lesions before surgery. Best of luck on your journey.
