How would already inverted nipples look after a breast reduction?
How would already inverted nipples look after a breast reduction?
Dec 26, 2017
It is not predictable what will happen to your inverted nipples after a breast reduction.  There are different degrees of inverted nipples, depending on how easily they can be everted (pulled out).  If they are of the softer degree, the breast reduction may correct the problem.  But if they are of the more severe type of nipple inversion then they would have to be corrected through a separate procedure, and there are different techniques of correcting inverted nipples which each plastic su…

Tip rhinoplasty: is it possible in my case?
Dec 26, 2017
In my 30 years of experience I have treated many patients in your situation.  Some have been happy with the outcome, and some not so happy.  The truth is that your type of nose is extremely challenging and requires much expertise as well as realistic expectations on your part.  As you mentioned, the thick skin will not allow a major reduction in the bulkiness of the tip.  However, the excessive projection can definitely be reduced and the shape can be somewhat modified.  I would not even …

Judging from your photos, your breasts do not appear to be a G/H cup.  If they are not causing the usual symptoms of back, shoulder, and neck pain to the point where it would be disruptive to your day-to-day activities, then you should hold off on getting a breast reduction at this age, because aesthetically your breasts are satisfactory compared to the scars which will result from a breast reduction.  I have done breast reductions on girls your age, but for truly huge breasts which i…
Why do reverse abdominoplasty scars look so much better than regular tummy tuck scars?
Why do reverse abdominoplasty scars look so much better than regular tummy tuck scars?
Sep 15, 2017
In fact, most authorities agree that the reverse tummy tuck scar heals poorly and is much more of a problem than a traditional tummy tuck scar.

Is it OK to ask a doctor you are consulting with about a couple of genuinely disturbing reviews?
Sep 15, 2017
Any busy plastic surgeon will occasionally have unrealistic patients who will find ways to blame their surgeon for what they would consider unfavorable outcome, and then leave negative reviews for that surgeon.  Also, there are reviews that appear out of nowhere, like one that I have, containing false information left by unknown persons who can be persons having personal grudges that have nothing to do with the surgeon’s qualifications and experience.  So, to allow such reviews deter you f…
What exactly is a two stage tummy tuck with lipo? Is this 2 separate surgeries?
What exactly is a two stage tummy tuck with lipo? Is this 2 separate surgeries?
Sep 15, 2017
The current trend for abdominal contour improvement is to perform an aggressive liposuction in the first stage, and then go back 6 months later to carry out the abdominoplasty (tummy tuck).  Yes it is two separate operations and studies have shown that it provides the best outcome.

Thank you for your question and the photos.  From your photos it appears you need a lift along with implants.  The lift would be mainly to reduce the size of your areolae.  You need to be evaluated in person by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who can give you detailed information about the procedure.  Hope that helps.
What can be done for my extremely uneven nose of just one side?
What can be done for my extremely uneven nose of just one side? (Photo)
Sep 14, 2017
Your nose is a thick skin and asymmetrical nose.  The asymmetry is most likely a combination of a deviated septum and a shift of the nasal pyramid, which could be post-traumatic.  A septorhinoplasty done by an expert can definitely improve the appearance of your nose.  It will require extensive work which, again, only a surgeon with adequate experience in this type of surgery will be able to carry out to give you the best result.

Based on your photos you may have enough for a 5 liter BBL.  However, it is impossible to say for sure without an in person examination.

It is very unlikely that any of the plastic surgeons in Iran are experienced in this procedure, because as you may know with Persian women it is almost always the opposite problem, they usually have too much in the buttock area that they want to get rid of.  However, I will be travelling to Iran next month and I will be meeting with some of my Iranian colleagues.  If I find out anything further I can update the information for you.

I have never heard of such a complication and never seen something like this in 30 years of experience.  What is the scar due to and where exactly is it located?  Photos would help.

I’m looking for the best rhinoplasty surgeon in California. Suggestions?
Aug 10, 2017
I suggest that you try to use criteria other than looking for the “best rhinoplasty surgeon”.  All plastic surgeons consider themselves the best, but you would be better off staying away from someone who would make that claim to you outright.  You need to see the plastic surgeon’s work, either through sample photos or through other patients.  All plastic surgeons have some excellent results, some mediocre results, and maybe a few not so satisfactory results.  Anyone who tells you othe…

After Tummy Tuck and Lipo, 3 weeks later I got hot on the left side and sciatic pain, should I be concerned?
May 9, 2017
Some back pain after TT is normal and expected.  But what you are describing sounds more serious and it is quite possible that you have a herniated disc issue.  This needs to be evaluated by a neurologist or spine specialist.  Have your PS refer you to one of these specialties for proper evaluation and treatment.

This is not uncommon, especially when a lift and implants are combined like what seems to have been done in your case.  Although it does not look nice and requires additional care which you probably did not anticipate, but fortunately the end result is usually quite satisfactory and often times after complete closure you may not even be able to tell that this happened.  Hope that helps
