Breast surgery after heart disease
Aug 27, 2016
I don't blame you for not wanting to post photos. It seems standards of personal privacy are gone today. In any case you may have a breast reduction which lifts you as well, it's typically a 3 hour procedure under general or IV sedation. A medical clearance by your cardiologist or internist is necessary prior to surgery to ensure that your medical condition is stable for the surgery. I encourage you to look into it as most women are very happy with the results of this operation.

Fat transfer instead of mplant
Aug 27, 2016
An in person consultation is necessary to accurately assess your situation but you may be a good candidate for fat transfer instead of an implant. Fat transfer involves liposuction of excess fat from unwanted areas and transfer to the breasts. At least partial correction of your asymmetry can be accomplished as well. An actual consult with your plastic surgeon is necessary but this is just an option to consider.

Rib graft treatment
Nov 29, 2015
Post surgical treatment options include Embrace and a silicone cream called Biocorneum. You can find these products on line or on my website.
When should a person start to use Sculptra? Is 30 too young?
Best age to start Sculptra
Nov 29, 2015
There isn't an arbitrary age to begin Sculptra it any other soft tissue filler. The treatment must be tailored for the individual. Sculptra is a wonderful product in the right situation and I encourage you to look into it.
Does Hyaluronic acid improve Bells Palsy?
Bell's palsy
Nov 27, 2015
Hyaluronic acids fillers can help fill in depressions and wrinkling to improve symmetry but it won't help your facial nerve recover. After 3 years you can not expect your facial nerve to recover. You improve your symmetry by exercises which take advantage of any motion you have preserved. Botox is also helpful to improve symmetry by reducing spasm and hyperactivity. A surgeon who has an interest in facial nerve problems will be very helpful to you.
I can feel and see the white silicone sticking out in my nose. Is this normal? Can I get a cortisone
Silicone visible??!!
Nov 22, 2015
As the other doctors have advised silicone extruding from your nose is a serious matter that can lead to severe infection and even loss of your natural cartilage and skin. Therefore you should seek medical attention as soon as possible to avoid problems
What are my options? Any advice?
Breast wound
Oct 31, 2015
Your breast wound is serious but advice regarding wound care can not be made without a little more information. The date of your surgery, presence of an implant and the type of sutures used in the closure are important factors. For example, a permanent suture material in the periareolar closure would likely require removal before the wound will heal. I suggest that you discuss referral to a wound care center with your surgeon.
Can a 550cc-600cc hp silicone implant fit in a 15 bwd? Thank you in advance!
Flat wide look
Oct 31, 2015
Your complaint of a flat shape may be due less to the shape of the implant than the location of the implant under the pectoral is muscle. The unnatural fullness of the breast seen best on the lateral view is due to the implant pushing out the pectoral is muscle, just like a body builder with a thick pectoral is muscle. To achieve a better shape I suggest that you discuss placement of the new silicone implants over the muscle. This will allow the implant to project your breast...
My labiaplasty outcome is not as the surgeon hoped. Is it best to have a revision?
Revision labiaplasty
Oct 25, 2015
You do look as though you'd benefit from a revision, but I think a wedge excision is the wrong approach. You should discuss the technique in detail with your surgeon and perhaps have another opinion before any revision.
Brest reduction + implant, after BR surgery years ago? Wanna ditch the bra sometimes!
More fullness
Oct 18, 2015
A breast lift will help you a lot and has the advantage of using your existing scars. The side breast can be repositioned centrally or reduced with liposuction. The upper pole fullness can be improved with an implant but I usually recommend fat grafting in cases like yours since it avoids the issues associated with implants.

Post op abdominoplasty flap necrosis
Oct 17, 2015
Unfortunately you have a significant process of the abdominal flap. The necrotic or nonliving tissue must be debrided or removed either with regular dressing changes or surgical debridement. Once the nonliving tissue is gone the remaining open wound can be closed with surgery or allowed to close naturally. The only options not mentioned in the prior answers for you our referral to a dedicated wound care center and hyperbaric oxygen treatment. I suggest you discuss...
I am currently a 34 DDD/E and requested a full B/small C. Why can't I achieve my goal?
Breast reduction
Oct 17, 2015
It is possible to reduce the volume of your breast to a full B small C size using a Wise pattern breast reduction method. This leaves an inverted T shaped scar on your breast. Scars can be minimized using a Scar therapy program with Prineo tape and postoperative Embrace silicone treatment.
Injecting fat under the muscle for fat transfer to breasts procedure?
Fat injection of breasts
Oct 17, 2015
Fat injection of the breast has proven to be ineffective and low complication method of breast enhancement over the past several years. The lack of predictability is the problem and small calcifications and oil cysts occur in around 5% of cases. These are easily differentiated from breast cancer with imaging and easily treated.Adipose stem cell enhancement of fat grafts is one method under investigation to improve fat graft permanent volume. Injection into the...
Do I need another tummy tuck? One year post op and I'm still 100% dissatisfied.
Another revision??
Oct 11, 2015
Very difficult to tell if another surgery would help you, I suggest that you visit with your surgeon and discuss your concerns, including the muscle laxity you feel.
Am I the right candidate for breast augmentation? I'm 23 years old, 5'6", 120 lbs, with a breast siz
Hesitant before an augmentation
Oct 9, 2015
You are a good candidate for an augmentation with either in the implant or even possibly fat grafting. In general your breast will return to their pre-surgical shape after an implant is removed but this may not be true if you encounter serious complications such as an infection or your implant is large enough. Given your hesitancy I'd suggest another visit to your surgeon to answer your questions and a little soul searching.
