Am I a good candidate for a mommy makeover?
Mommy makeover!
Apr 9, 2020
You would be a great candidate for a mommy makeover!
A tummy tuck with a 360 liposuction would really tighten that stomach as well as give you a nice shape to your waist and accentuate your butt. For your breasts either volume through fat transfer or an implant with a possible mini lift would give you a fuller perkier breasts.

Will a BBL improve my cellulite, and contour irregularities?
BBL and Cellulite
Jul 1, 2018
Hello and thank you for your question.
If you're looking to achieve a fuller and rounder buttock, then a Brazilian butt lift or BBL is the way to go. However, that issue is separate from cellulite and waviness of the skin. In fact, getting liposuction to harvest the fat for the BBL may worsen your cellulite.
Fortunately, there are other techniques that can be employed during the surgery that can help address and improve cellulite. These include skin tightening devices, fillers or fat...
Nose looks wider after septorhinoplasty - 9 days post-op.
Nose wider?
Jul 1, 2018
Hello and thank you for your question.
To start, it is important to note that 9 days after rhinoplasty there's going to be considerable swelling. Therefore, you cannot assess the final width of the nose or shape at this point.
With that being said, sometimes a rhinoplasty surgeon has to place additional cartilage grafts along the dorsum or bridge of the nose which may make it look wider than it was originally in order to achieve the straightening of the septum that you need....
My last plastic surgeon did me great harm. I am looking for a surgeon in the LA area to reconst
Fat grafting
Jul 1, 2018
Hello and thank you for your question.
It is difficult to assess the degree of deformity and complexity of the reconstruction needed without an in-person evaluation and records regarding what procedures you have had done.
However, in general, reconstruction of the breast using fat grafting only will require multiple treatments and may not be possible by itself and often times needs to be combined with a lift, or implant, or flap surgery ...
On average how much does a BBL cost? In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania?
BBL Cost
Apr 22, 2018
This is a difficult question to answer...
Surgeons have various prices for BBL. Some will charge a flat rate for a minimal BBL, while most will charge based on the amount of liposuction being done and the amount of fat being placed into the buttocks. Ultimately, you want to seek consultation from a Board-certified plastic surgeon with plenty of experience in this technique.
Hope this helps and good luck!

I have deep creases on my reconstructed breast one week after surgery. Why did this happen? (ph
Creases post breast reconstruction
Apr 22, 2018
Thank you for your question.
This is NOT a rare issue with breast reconstruction. Certain techniques can avoid it, but sometimes it is unavoidable. And without being in the surgery and knowing more details it is impossible to say. The good news is that it can be fixed (either improved dramatically or resolved). Fat grafting and certain scar release techniques can help. This may be done without removing and replacing your current implants. Ultimately, I recommend seeking an...
I look so tired and depressed. These jowls, my lips/mouth have disappeared
Looking tired...
Apr 22, 2018
Hello and thank you for your questions.
The incision in front can be made inside the tragus ("little bump") or in front of it. I find that inside hides the scar much better, and there are specific techniques that can avoid the flattening you speak of.
The incision behind the ear should not go too high as it will narrow the skin and potentially affect the blood supply and cause healing issues.
There are many forms of facelifts. There is no one traditional method. Most will address your...
What is the risk of having a mommy makeover and BBL at the same time?
Mommy Makeover (Breast and Tummy Tuck) and BBL
Apr 16, 2018
Thank you for your question. This is a very common one...
CAN you combine all the procedures? Yes, and some surgeons do, however, many do not. Why?
1) Combining the procedures increases your post-operative complication risks.
2) Recovery is much more difficult
3) You may actually have a better result by staging the liposuction and tummy tuck component.
Therefore, I would seek an in-person consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can give you an individualized assessment...
I would like to have both breasts the same size: will Medicare pay for this?
Breast symmetry procedures
Apr 16, 2018
Thank you for your question.
This is a very common issue and concern.
The short answer is YES. Insurance companies are required to cover many aspects of breast reconstruction including symmetry procedures. That may include, breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, fat grafting, etc... This includes Medicare.
Make sure you seek a plastic surgeon that is board-certified, has experience in breast reconstruction, and works with multiple insurance carriers.
Hope this helps and good...
Can a BBL and extended tummy tuck be done at the same time?
BBL and Tummy tuck
Apr 16, 2018
Thank you for your question.
The short answer is... yes, they CAN be done at the same time. The more involved answer is:
1) Splitting them, doing the lipo and BBL first will ultimately make your recovery easier AND potentially give you a better tummy tuck result as the surgeon can be quite aggressive with the removal of fat during the abdominal liposuction (something that shouldn't be done if doing TT at the same time).
2) The downside is 2 surgeries and a longer process
Ultimately, I...
Is a correction on my nose tip and bridge possible?
Correction of Nose Tip and Bridge
Apr 16, 2018
Thank you for your question.
Based on your goals and a your pictures, it appears that you would be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Whether it's small changes or significant ones, rhinoplasty would be the procedure to make it happen. You do appear to have a deviation of your nose, (possibly internally with your septum as well), along with a slightly bulbous tip and wide middle third of your nose. These issues can all be addressed through adjustment of skin, cartilage and bone via a...
How long after a double mastectomy can I put expanders in if no chemo or radiation are needed?
Timing of breast expanders and reconstruction
Apr 1, 2018
Thank you for your question.
If you're having implant-based reconstruction you have two options, with regard to timing, immediate (with mastectomy) or delayed (after mastectomy). With immediate you have single or two stage reconstruction as options, while with delayed it is typically two stages. What is the correct combination depends on your specific situation.
Two-stage Reconstruction
The most common form of breast reconstruction is two-stage implant reconstruction. Mastectomy often leads...
Beast augmentation 6 months ago. Breast dropped. My doctor states I slept wrong. Not true, slee
Breast droop or drop after augmentation
Apr 1, 2018
Thank you for your question.
It sounds like you may have one of two potential issues (difficult to say without pictures). The implants may have bottomed out, that is, they are lower than desired, or the breast tissue is now drooping despite the placement of the implant. The correction of bottomed out implants requires repositioning of the implants and correction of the pocket. If it is the breast tissue that is drooping, then a lift may be indicating. Sometimes, both interventions may be...
5'6", 195 lbs, apple body. How much weight should I lose?
Weight at time of BBL
Apr 1, 2018
Thank you for your question.
As with most other surgeries, you should be as close to your ideal weight as possible. You should also be stable at that weight for at least 3 months. Significant active weight loss could increase your risk of surgical wound healing issues.
Also, congratulations on your weight loss. It is important to note that with significant weight loss there may be significant skin laxity or excess issues. I do no see any pictures so I cannot say for sure in your case. Those...
I am looking for a double board certified doctor that does BBL in a hospital. Can you refer me
Picking the right surgeon
Apr 1, 2018
Choosing the right surgeon is the most critical step in your process. There many excellent surgeons available and it is important that you and you surgeon have a good relationship and agree to a surgical plan with which you are comfortable. You want to make sure the surgeon has experience in what you are planning to do and has the appropriate board certification. For example, if you're seeking a plastic surgeon, then the only board certification that matters is the...
