Doctor's answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
What degree of ptosis is this, and would I be more suitable for a donut or lollipop mastopexy? (p
what degree of ptosis and which mastopexy?
Jun 5, 2019
From the photos, you have grade 2 ptosis.  A wise pattern or possibly a vertical mastopexy would be your best options.  To maintain upper breast fullness, consider a small implant as well.  Discuss with your board certified plastic surgeon and good luck.
Am I bottoming out 1.5 years post-op? Can this be fixed with minimal surgery?
Can bottoming out of the right breast be fixed at 18 months?
Jun 5, 2019
    From the photos, it does appear that your right breast is lower than the left.  This can be repaired by placing internal sutures in the right breast implant cavity to create a higher infra-mammary crease.  Discuss with your plastic surgeon and good luck
What do I need to fix what's wrong with the lower half of my face?
what to do to fix the lower half of my face?
Jun 5, 2019
You have an under projecting chin and loose neck skin /jowls.  You would be best served by a lower face and neck lift combined with a chin implant.  Discuss this with your surgeon and good luck
How is diastasis recti repaired with a tummy tuck?
How is the diastasis reparied in a tummy tuck?
Jun 4, 2019
The diastasis or muscle separation of the rectus muscles is repaired using sutures during a tummy tuck.  The covering around the muscles is sewn together, bringing the muscles together.  This prevents damage to the muscle.  Therefore the function should not be altered
I have diastasis recti as well as ventral hernia. Need those repaired along with tt/breast done.
Can a ventral hernia and diastasis recti be repaired with a mommy makeover?
Jun 4, 2019
In general,  a ventral hernia and diastasis recti can be repaired during the tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover.  Sometimes the plastic surgeon can repair the hernia and other times a general surgeon is needed.  You will probably need pre-operative evaluation that will include a study such as a CAT scan to assess the hernia prior to the surgery.  Discuss with your Plastic surgeon and good luck
Why do my liposuction results 1 week post surgery not look as great as they did from right after
Liposuction results look worse at one week. Is this ok?
Jun 4, 2019
   Post-operative swelling  can make the results of your liposuction look different between the day of surgery and one week.  It often takes several months to see what the area will look like after liposuction of the abdomen.  Be patient and don't worry about changes within the first few weeks after liposuction, but communicate your concerns with your plastic surgeon.  good luck
Will bigger implants on smaller people lead to ruptures?
Will bigger implants lead to ruptures in smaller people?
Jun 4, 2019
I am unaware of any study or clinical evidence that relates the rupture rate of an implant to your physical size.  If the cavity created for the implant is too small for the implant, this could increase the rupture rate, especially if the implant is forced into the smaller space.  Otherwise, your physical size would generally not be a factor in implant rupture rates with a larger implant.
Does insurance cover pre-op testing?
Does insurance cover blood tests for breast augmentation?
Jun 4, 2019
Insurance plans vary greatly and the lab testing could/could not be covered.  If not covered, see if your plastic surgeon's office works with a lab for reduced cosmetic patient pricing.  Discuss with your surgeon and good luck
is it possible to have a body lift with kidney disease that is stable?
Bodylift with kidney disease?
Jun 4, 2019
  It is possible to have a bodylift with stable kidney disease provided that your primary care physician and kidney doctor feel you are a safe candidate for the operation.  This may involve your plastic surgeon discussing your procedure with your other physicians but stable kidney disease should not be a contraindication to having the bodylift.  Good luck
What procedure should I have to fix several problems with my nose?
several problems with my nose; what to do
Jun 4, 2019
With your history and from your photos, you would be best served by  an open rhinoplasty, possibly also addressing your nasal septum.  It is likely that your crooked nose will require straightening your nasal septum and correcting the nasal bone position.  Along with this, a rhinoplasty will address your nasal tip concerns.  Discuss with your surgeon and good luck.
9 month post op breast implants - The left looks natural, the right looks like a round obvious im
Revision needed after implants?
Mar 8, 2019
From the one photo provided, it is very difficult to comment on the implant position.  If you could provide pre-operative photos and a few recent views, then an opinion could be given.
Can a lower face lift and neck lift look natural?
Can a facelift look natural?
Mar 8, 2019
  A facelift should look natural, but many surgeons do not achieve this result for various reasons.  The best way to determine if your plastic surgeon would give you the natural look that you desire is to review his/her before and after photos.  That way, you will be able to see what your surgeon thinks is a natural outcome after a facelift.  So, do you homework and you can get the result you want from plastic surgeon.  Good luck.
Based on my photos, which procedure is recommended: liposuction or Brachioplasty?
brachioplasty or liposuction?
Mar 8, 2019
From the photos provided, it appears that your arms would get the best result from a combination of liposuction and brachioplasty.   You need the extra hanging tissue removed and the fat volume reduced for the best result.   Liposuction alone will not address the extra hanging tissue, and brachioplasty alone will not address the excess fat volume.  Discuss with your plastic surgeon and good luck
Do breast hematomas always need to be surgically removed?
does a small hematoma (blood collection) under my breast need surgery?
Mar 8, 2019
From your photos, you appear to have a small area of bruising (ecchymosis) under your breasts.  If your plastic surgeon determines that there is a small fluid collection associated with it, it is a save option to leave it alone and let your body resorb it.  Your body commonly does this with bruising in other areas of your body and will do the same with your breasts.
Can I give birth naturally after my nose surgery?
nasal surgery and natural child birth
Mar 8, 2019
There is no contraindication to having natural child birth after having a rhinoplasty.  Cosmetic surgery should not be performed during your pregnancy, but otherwise it is ok.
