What procedure is best
Feb 13, 2018
Obviously we're somewhat limited in this forum as we can only go by photos alone.  That being said, based on your photos, you appear to be a candidate for a breast augmentation along with a one-sided lift for symmetry.  That one-sided lift would be either through just the areolar incision or possibily a lollipop scar.  Hope that helps!
Wanting perky breasts without getting a lift
Wanting to avoid a lift
Feb 13, 2018
Many women are concerned about the scars associated with the lift so this is not an uncommon question.  The bad news is there is simply no way to get you to a perkier position (and resize your areola) without a lift.  The good news is that studies show that satisfaction rates for this procedure are extremely high.  Women are so thrilled with their enhanced position and shape that they forgive the scars.  Furthermore, current treatments in scar car can help limit the severity of these scar...

Do I need to replace implants?
Oct 31, 2017
A Breast lift can be performed WITHOUT changing the implants. If you are happy with the feel and size of your implants but just want the breast height corrected, this can certainly be done while leaving the implants alone. 
Hi what can I do to flatten/minimize my scar after breast augmentation? 4 weeks post op.
Scar after Breast augmentation
Oct 31, 2017
You are still relatively early in the healing process. Options to consider including silicone treatments, steroid injection, and scar massage. Ask your surgeon for his/her preferences. Recognize as well that it takes several months for the scar to smooth out and the color to lighten.

Concern after tummy tuck
Aug 7, 2017
Thanks for your inquiry.  Don't panic.  It is WAY too early to make any assessments of your results.  As you heal over the next weeks to months, you will see many changes.  The earliest I would make any outcome assessment would be 3 months.  Good luck with a smooth recovery!

Concerns after liposuction
Aug 7, 2017
Don't panic!  Liposuction is a marathon not a sprint.  There is a long period of swelling (6-8 weeks) and an additional period required for skin tightening (3-6 months) that need to pass before you can faithfully assess your result.  Compression is important and there are many who believe lymphatic massage can assist as well.  Good luck!
There is something that feels like plastic and seems to go around my BA incision.
Material in incision
Aug 7, 2017
It looks like you have some suture material that is exposed.  It should either fall off on its own or your surgeon can snip it off to you.  This is not an uncommon experience and should not hinder your final result!
I don't know if there's a problem with my implant? 6 weeks post op with 385 cc unders.
Concerns after BA
Aug 7, 2017
Thank you for your question.  In general, it is appropriate to wait AT LEAST 3 months to assess your result.  When I see patients who come from another surgeon's office looking for revision, I encourage them to wait at least 6 months before making a return trip to the OR.  A couple things to keep in mind.  First, it is certainly important to relay your concerns to your surgeon and if after 3-6 months you feel like your concerns are not being addressed, it would be reasonable to seek out anot...
Is it safe to get liposuction if I'm overweight?
Safe to do lipo?
Aug 7, 2017
Ideally, patients have a stable (at least 6 months) and healthy (BMI30, surgery may certainly still be possible if a health clearance is provided from a primary care provider and as long as the patient understands he or she is at greater risk for complications.
Can I get areola reduction/make my left nipple higher like the right one?
Candidate for circumareolar lift
Aug 4, 2017
Based on your photos, you appear to be an excellent candidate for a circumareolar lift.  Be advised that this would entail a scar around the entire circumference of the areola and you might be left with asymmetry in terms of size and shape of the areolar although they should end up at the same height.
Is my high PT cause for alarm before surgery?
elevated PT
Aug 4, 2017
A better test would be an INR.  Unless you had a history of bleeding disorders, it was probably unnecessary to order this test in preparation for a breast augmentation.  In any case, your number is barely elevated and likely does NOT represent a significant risk to you.  Since your surgeon was likely the one that ordered this test, it is best that you consult with him/her.
I got my BA done 3 months ago and my breasts look noticeably lower than my before pics?
Concerned about result
Aug 4, 2017
This is certainly something you should bring to the attention of your operative surgeon.  It is difficult to make any definitive diagnosis solely from a photo but it is possible that your pocket was over dissected leading to lower-resting implants.  This or other causes could be addressed with a revision operation.

Advice to get proper implant size...
Aug 2, 2017
Selecting the appropriate implant for a patient is finding that sweet spot where patient goals and patient anatomy intersect.  The former can be determined with 3D imaging, goal photos, and in-office sizing.  The latter required a thorough in-person examination taking into account multiple measurements and assessments including skin thickness and stretch.  I suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon whom you trust and letting him/her guide you through the process.  Good luck!
Breast augmentation scars hurting and sensitive. Itch and burn, red but no puss. Just got to touch.
Concern about breast scars
Aug 2, 2017
From your photos you appear to have hypertrophic scarring.  This is not an altogether uncommon occurrence in plastic surgery and there are ways it can be treated.  I suggest starting with your chosen surgeon who can counsel you on your options.  Good luck!
What can I do about the skin under my breasts lifting?
Concern about skin under breast
Aug 2, 2017
You appear in your photo to have what is known as a double bubble sign.  There are different causes for this happening.  Based on your photos, you might likely benefit from a breast lift  which would likely address this issue.  I would recommend returning to your surgeon to discuss your options.  Good luck!
