Bio/important info: What do you love most about your job at Lawton Plastic Surgery? Besides helping people with their desire to look and feel better about themselves, honestly, the people I work with. I've worked with most of my coworkers for over 18 years....we work well together. I consider them family. I think that makes a difference in how we care for the patients. I feel that it is very obvious that we are such a close knit crew. We welcome our patients into our little family and see them for years. We still have patients from 2000, who we see yearly. I think that's amazing that we have that. I love that Dr. Lawton does not do surgery just because somebody wants it. If it is not the right procedure, he won't do it. He could do it for more money or simply because they want it, but he stands by his work and takes pride in what he is doing.

Answer Snippet
Are there any implants that don’t have a silicone shell?
Fat transfer is not a good option
Apr 26, 2020
There are no implants without a silicone shell.   Fat transfer results in loss of 50-70% of the fat volume that is grafted within 6 months.  Dying fat leaves behind micro calcifications.  Those microcalifications will be confused with micrcalcifications associated with cancers for the rest of your life that will either result in a missed cancer diagnosis or overly aggressive biopsy forever.  Either way the transfer of fat is all one of the most dangerous procedures in plastic surgery and tra...
Scar tissue blocks feeling in my nipple. Could I get this removed during a BA?
No surgery
Apr 26, 2020
Surgery will replace the scar you already have there with another one.  Since you have feeling I would not suggest surgery since things will be very much the same with the risk of losing sensation.
Urinary Catheter for breast augmentation- is it standard?
Techniques are customized for each procedure
Apr 26, 2020
We make all of our patients NPO after midnight because the surgery schedule is not set in stone.  If I get 2 hours ahead of schedule I might call the last breast augmentation of the day and ask them to come in early so I don't have to change 6 patient times.  If that patient was NPO for 4 hours for her planned procedure time she would not be able to move.  A catheter is not necessary for this procedure unless you have had problems voiding at previous surgeries.  Urinating is one of the disc...
Is my breast shape and size normal for my age (22 years old)?
Normal breasts
Apr 26, 2020
You have normal breasts.  You do not have tuberous breasts.There is not much to be gained by labeling someone with tuberous breasts.  An operative plan should be developed based on your anatomy.  Whether that is breast implantation, lift or reduction, symmetrization or some combination of procedures, there is no particular point in stigmatizing your breast shape.  A properly trained, skilled and ethical plastic surgeon can develop a plan based on your anatomy and give you the outcome tha...
Does wearing a small sports bra cause breast sagging?
Bras will not cause sagging
Apr 26, 2020
After breast augmentation I find no particular advantage to the use of surgical bras. In fact, I find that they can do more harm than good. They hold the implants too high, preventing them from dropping into position. In addition, they can put pressure on the healing breast or the wound. They provide no advantage. If the surgery was performed correctly, external appliances after surgery are unnecessary to achieve the appropriate final implant position. At one month we allow the patients to...
