Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Why have I been told I can’t shave my hair until 6 months? I model and need it looking neat! Can I sha
hair cut after hair transplant
Mar 30, 2019
It is fine to cut your hair 2 weeks after surgery. Your grafts will not be adversely effected by shaving your scalp with clippers. Best of luck!
One day after my rhinoplasty, I started feeling heart palpitations. Is this temporary?
palpitations after rhinoplasty
Mar 29, 2019
I recommend contacting your surgeon or visit your primary care doctor if you are feeling palpitations. Often times, vomiting and dehydration can lead to palpitations so it's likely related to that but it's important not to ignore these symptoms, especially if it's persistent. Best of luck!
Are doctors supposed to minimize fat removal during an upper bleph?
fat removal during blepharoplasty
Mar 27, 2019
The amount of fat, skin, and muscle removal varies from patient to patient, depending on their anatomy. In general, it is important to avoid a hollow appearance which may result from removing too much fat and/or muscle. When removing fat, using a cautery is nice to minimize the bleeding. I recommend a proper evaluation with a board certified facial plastic or oculoplastic surgeon. Good luck!
Under eyes filler and hard large lumps. Can this be corrected?
hard lumps after undereye fillers
Mar 27, 2019
This sounds like swelling related to the filler injection, but I would visit an experienced injector for a proper physical exam. Certain fillers can cause more swelling than others; for this reason, I avoid Juvederm for tear trough injections and I prefer Restylane. Swelling usually resolves after a few days but sometimes can take a few weeks. If it doesn't improve, the filler can potentially be dissolved (assuming it's a hyaluronic acid filler). I recommend a consultation with a board cer...
I have sinusitis. Post nasal drip. Take Flucticason daily. Headache, burning sensation. large nostrils
rhinoplasty and sinus surgery
Mar 27, 2019
A septorhinoplasty can improve breathing if there is a structural issue (i.e. deviated septum, weak nasal sidewalls, etc) and improve cosmetic appearance, but may not help with sinusitis. I recommend a thorough evaluation of your sinuses by an ENT; sinusitis can occasionally be treated with medications alone but may also require sinus surgery. Some ENT surgeons are also fellowship-trained in facial plastic surgery and can perform the rhinoplasty as well. Best of luck!
Eyelid surgery or a brow lift?
eyelid surgery or brow lift
Mar 27, 2019
Your eyebrows appear to be at an appropriate position. I do not recommend a brow lift as this will only give you a surprised/unnatural appearance. A conservative upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) can be considered to address the skin fold. I recommend a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon or oculoplastic surgeon. 
Could weight lifting prevent grafts to grow better?
weight lifting and hair grafts
Mar 27, 2019
Weight lifting will not effect your graft yield. If you had high-quality surgery then your grafts will grow. Grafts usually begin to grow at around 3-6 months with full results by 1 year postop. Best of luck!
How long after a facelift is it safe to color my hair?
hair coloring after facelift
Mar 27, 2019
I usually tell patients to wait at least 3-4 weeks after surgery before coloring their hair. I recommend following your doctor's postoperative instructions and reaching out to them with any questions. Best of luck!
I still have a bump on my nose after septorhinoplasty. Is this going to go away?
swelling after rhinoplasty
Mar 27, 2019
It is still too early to determine what the final result of your rhinoplasty will be. The swelling will likely resolve significantly in the upcoming months. Although the majority of swelling after rhinoplasty resolves by about 4 weeks, there is still some swelling even up to 12 months postoperatively. In general, swelling in the tip seems to take the longest to resolve. I would give it some more time and continue to follow all your doctor's postoperative instructions. Be sure to address any...
Could I have messed up my septoplasty after I felt septum pop?
septum pop after septoplasty
Mar 27, 2019
Simply tapping your nose most likely did not cause enough trauma to injure your nose. If you have any concerns, I would make an appointment to see your surgeon. Best of luck!
Should I lean more towards a surgeon who is open to showing me computer imaging for rhinoplasty?
computer imaging for rhinoplasty
Mar 27, 2019
While computer imaging can be helpful, it's certainly not necessary. The most important thing is to find a doctor who you are comfortable with and understands what your goals and expectations are for surgery. It's important to view before and after photos and see a board certified rhinoplasty specialist. Best of luck!
3 days post-op. Will my tip and nostrils drop?
3 days after rhinoplasty
Mar 27, 2019
3 days after surgery is too early in the healing phase to determine what the final result of your rhinoplasty will be. The nasal cast also alters the appearance of the tip so I would not judge the appearance of your nose at this point in time. Although the majority of swelling after rhinoplasty resolves by about 4 weeks, there is still some swelling even up to 12-18 months. Also it is not unusual to have asymmetric swelling. In general, swelling in the dorsum and tip seems to take the lo...
Minoxidil 5% gives me acne. How can I avoid this side effect or reduce it?
topical minoxidil and acne
Mar 19, 2019
The liquid formulation of minoxidil tends to cause acne for some people due to a preservative ingredient that is not found in the foam. You may want to try switching to minoxidil foam. Another option is low-dose oral minoxidil. This is a nice option for patients who have difficulty with topical application. The oral medication is not FDA-approved for this indication so it is prescribed off-label to treat hair thinning. I recommend a consultation with a hair specialist to further discuss th...
15 days post FUE, hit and scraped recipient area. Will it be ok? Are the grafts for the most part safe
scalp trauma after transplant
Mar 19, 2019
By 2 weeks after surgery, the hair grafts should be fully incorporated into the scalp at this point. You should be fine. The grafts should begin to grow at around 4-6 months, with full results at around 12 months. I recommend following up with your surgeon if you have any concerns. Best of luck!
After losing 100 pounds my eyes looks tired - Is surgery my only option?
eyelid area after weight loss
Mar 19, 2019
Congratulations on the weight loss! It's difficult to assess your eyes based on this one photo. In general, there are both surgical and non-surgical options for rejuvenating the eyelid/eyebrow area. I recommend making a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon for an in-person exam and thorough review of treatment options. Best of luck!
