Answer Snippet
Traditional Blepharoplasty Vs Laser Blepharoplasty for Eye Bags?
laser vs under the eye incision
Nov 27, 2016
Laser can be used in two ways; as a cutting tool or for skin resurfacing. I am assuming that the plastic surgeon who recommended laser blepharoplasty recommended laser resurfacing, which improves the texture and the fine lines in the skin. I can't see fat bags in the picture you provided, the area of puffiness that you have under the lash line is the area of the muscle that moves the lids. It is possible that you do not need any fat removal but blepharoplasty whether done through an under...
How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?
Eyelid Surgery Cost
Nov 27, 2016
Some where between $3,000 to $5,000 depending on whether you are doing upper or lower or both. Other fees may be applicable depending on whether the procedure is performed in an office or OR setting and type of anesthesia.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Eyelid surgery recovery
Nov 27, 2016
Recovery from surgery takes approximately 2 weeks for both upper and lower blepharoplasty. Bruising typically lasts for 7-10 days and swelling lasts longer. I tell my patients to at least rest at home with minimal social interactions for a week, that's when the swelling and bruising are the worst. Icing for the first 48 hours helps reduce both swelling and bruising. Wearing sunglasses when you are out helps cover and camouflage the eyes. After the first week, you should...
Droopy Eyelids - Alternatives to Eyelift Surgery?
Non surgical ways to improve the eyelids
Nov 27, 2016
Thank you for your question. It all depends on the degree of saggness, excess skin, presence of fat, etc. Every patient has different features and different cosmetic concerns. There are non surgical options that help resurface the skin, improve the texture and fine lines and also improve the volume around the eye. Different modalities of laser treatment and fillers can help accomplish that. However, non surgical treatment only work effectively in a select group of patients who do not...
How do you know when you need a back bra lift and not just lipo of the entire back?
back lift or liposuction
Apr 17, 2016
Thank you for your question. It depends on the degree of skin laxity and skin excess in the upper back. Patients who had a massive weight loss 60-100 Ibs are more likely to benefit from a back lift since the skin is deflated and lax. If the problem is in having fat deposits in the upper back creating rolls, I would start with liposuction first and not commit to a back lift. You will be surprised on how much improvement you can  get with liposuction alone, specially if you have a good skin ...
Which eye procesures are best?
Best eye procedure
Apr 5, 2016
Eye rejuvenation can involve several procedures. Lower lid lift or blepharoplasty tightens the skin of the lower lid and eliminates the bags while smoothing the surface of the lid and the cheek. A brow lift procedure elevates the brow position and corrects asymmetry while removal of the brow muscles help improve and sometime eliminate the furrows between the eyes. Not every patient is a candidate for all of these procedures, however they are often performed together when indicated. Non...
Subcuticular sutures versus mattress sutures?
Type of suture for tummy tuck
Apr 5, 2016
Thank you for your quesiton. Subcuticular sutures are typically used to close the tummy incision to avoid any track marks. Sometimes a special type of mattress sutures are used to close the belly button incision but not the main transverse tummy tuck incision. Bunching of the incision is a different story. Sometimes bunching is done on purpose when there is more redundant skin towards the center however this settles down with time and heals in a straight line. 
What shape/type are my breasts and how are my imframammary folds?
What shape are my breasts?
Mar 22, 2016
You have a normal shaped breasts that look round and are at a good position on the chest, not high or low. Your inframammary fold is well-defined. Using a breast implant will enhance the volume of your breasts and give you more projection on the side view. I think you are a good candidate. Hope this helps.
How much would be enough filler to make my lips look plumped but natural?
How much lip filler
Mar 22, 2016
You seem to have a nice volume and shape to your lips. I would be careful with using more than one syringe since this will give you an unnatural look. I would even start with less than a syringe and target certain areas to enhance your lip features. Thanks for your question.
I'm 32 and have saggy eyelids. Should I consider an upper bleph or eyebrow lift?
Surgery for saggy eyelids
Mar 11, 2016
Thanks for the question. Looking at he photos you provided, I don't see a need for either a brow lift or an upper blepharoplasty. Things may look different in person specially if you are actively elevating your eye brows. You have a nice will defined upper lid crease with no skin excess that I can see and arched eye brows. Regarding botox treatment, it is hard to make a recommendation without seeing a picture before botox treatment. Getting botox on the forehead can definitely cause sagging...
My lower left eyelid has pulled away from my eyeball and I would like to know if this is normal? (
eyelid pulling away from the eyeball after blepharoplasty
Mar 10, 2016
Thanks for your question. You should not have this problem at 5 days from surgery. From my experience, even swelling after surgery should not pull your eyelid aways from the globe or the eyeball. This is called lower lid retraction, or lower lid malposition, and in its severe form it is called lower lid ectropion. When this happens in the first week after surgery it is usually better to correct it right away with tightening the lid rather than waiting until scar tissue develop because then...
How long will it likely take me to heal from a mommy makeover at age 40?
Healing from a mommy makeover at age 40
Mar 10, 2016
Thanks for the question. Being 40 will not impact the rate of your healing after a mommy makeover. You are still well within the average age of women who get this procedure done. Recovery and healing depends on the type of procedure performed. If you are getting a full tummy tuck and breast lift with implants, it will take you an average of 4 weeks to heal. From my experience women usually have longer recovery from a tummy tuck procedure compared to breast. 
Can you only go so big with breast implants?
how big can you go with breast implant
Feb 18, 2016
The answer is yes, there is a limit on the size because your breast can accommodate implants that can go up to certain dimensions. Each implant has standard dimensions: width, height, projection and volume. Your breast on the other hand also has similar dimensions: width, height, distance between the nipple and the crease under the breast,and skin stretchability. These dimensions can be expanded to a certain limit to accommodate larger implants so you can probably go from a size B to DD. One...
What can I do to get rid of saggy skin and bags under my eyes?
saggy skin under the eyes
Feb 12, 2016
Thanks for your question. I understand that you do not prefer surgery, however looking at your photos, I do believe that this would be the treatment of choice which is a lower blepharoplasty or eyelid lift. You have significant skin excess in the lower lid that extends to the eyelid cheek junction.  this would not fully improve with fillers or energy device. You also seem to still have some product (HA filler?) in the lower lids. Lower blepharoplasty can tighten your skin, remove the bags...
Fat injection brow lift or eyelid surgery?
fat injection for brow lift
Feb 12, 2016
Your eyebrows are actually in a good normal position for a male your age. You can see your upper lid crease very clearly so I do not believe that you need a brow lift or an upper blepharoplasty. You may have a subtle droopiness in the upper eyelid itself, however this is not clear from the pictures you provided. It all depends on your goals and what you are trying to accomplish. If you are concerned about asymmetry in the brow position, then botox injection is a good way to start. You can...
