Doctor’s answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
What’s the Best Lip Enhancement and Plumping?
Best options for lip augmentation
Oct 2, 2010
For patients interested in fuller, more pronounced lips, I would recommend hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane. I usually perform this in the office under local anesthesia. The length of time these fillers last is variable, roughly 6-8 months. These fillers really have minimal side effects and your surgeon can fine tune the result to the look you want. The result is usually immediate, but as the hyaluronic acid pulls in water, you can detect a…
Do Breast Reconstruction Tissue Expanders Cause Pain As They Expand?
Tissue expanders for breast reconstruction – Painful?
Oct 1, 2010
One of the most common techniques for breast reconstruction is the use of tissue expanders (with or without a dermal matrix graft e.g. Alloderm).  It is a relatively shorter procedure than autologous reconstruction (e.g. TRAM, DIEP).  In my opinion, implant-based breast reconstruction is a good option for the following patients:

1) Women who already have breast implants,

2) Women who have A-cup or B-cup breasts,

3) Women with minimal breast ptosis (sagging breasts),…

Is Abdominal Liposuction the Same As a Tummy Tuck?
Abdominal liposuction is not the same as Abdominoplasty.
Oct 1, 2010
Although many plastic surgeons combine some liposuction during the abdominoplasty procedure, this is often limited to the flank regions and/or thighs.   The abdominoplasty procedure is used to address several components of the anterior abdominal region which liposuction does not.  The abdominoplasty –

1) Removes excess skin,

2) Removes excess fat, and

3) Tightens loose abdominal muscles (rectus muscles).

Liposuction only removes excess fat.  Therefore,…

How Noticeable Are the Scars After an Otoplasty?
Otoplasty scars.
Oct 1, 2010
The surgical approach for the correction of "prominent ears" is usually via a posterior approach.  Essentially the incision is placed in the groove behind the ear where the ear meets the skull.  This incision is approximately 3-4 cm long.  From this incision "most" aspects of the prominent ear can be corrected.  This involves several permanent sutures to reshape the cartilage and set-back the ear.  The prominent earlobe can be addressed as…
Hard Lump After Fat Graft Removal
Hardness after fat graft removal
Sep 30, 2010
There could be many reasons for the hardness after fat graft removal, such as inflammation, fat necrosis, hematoma, residual fat graft, or scar tissue.  Three months is a fair amount of time, but I would wait longer (approximately 6 months) before trying steroids or 5-FU.  You can try massaging the area to help soften up the hardness.  I would like to have more information about the fat grafting.  1)  What is the location of the original fat…
Breast Reduction Recommended if Overweight?
Breast reduction in patients overweight.
Sep 30, 2010
This is a very common question from women considering breast reduction surgery. Many times insurance companies use a scale to determine the minimum amount of breast tissue (per breast) to be removed in order for them to consider it medically indicated. This scale is based on Body Surface Area (this scale is called the Schnur sliding scale and can be found online). Obviously, if a patient looses weight then the BSA drops and therefore the minimum amount of breast tissue to…
How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?
Breast Augmentation – Cost.
Sep 29, 2010
The cost of breast augmentation varies widely from region to region.  The cost also varies because every case is unique.  If a patient has significant breast asymmetry or a component of tuberous breast deformity, breast augmentation, in these situations, will take longer and getting a good cosmetic result will require more technical expertise and experience.  Therefore the cost will likely be more expensive.  Revision breast augmentation (correcting the results of breast…
Who Should Consider a Tummy Tuck?
Tummy Tuck – Candidate?
Sep 29, 2010
There are many options for patients interested in body-contouring procedures.  If a patient is concerned about the anterior abdominal region, some options include liposuction, mini-abdominoplasty, and full-abdominoplasty.  Liposuction (the aspiration of adipose tissue/fat) is primarily used for patients who have good skin elasticity, a minimal amount of excess/loose skin, and no rectus diastasis (weakened abdominal muscles).  One way to help determine if the skin has lost…
Breast Implants After Lumpectomy and Radiation?
Breast implants after lumpectomy and radiotherapy
Sep 29, 2010
As with most of the questions on this website, the treatment options are often complicated and there are many different philosophies/methods.  Nothing can replace a formal consultation and physical examination.  In my opinion, breast implants should not be used after lumpectomy/radiation (in most situations.)  The risks of complications are higher, such as wound complications and infection.  The specific complication that most patients are concerned about is capsular…
Is 40 Too Young for a Facelift?
Facelift – Is 40 too young?
Sep 26, 2010
Although one shouldn't generalize and each patient is unique, forty does sound too young for a facelift.  There are some patients that have medical conditions causing premature loss of skin elasticity that may be good candidates for a facelift even at age 40.  Patients who have spent significant amounts of time under the sun, may have premature facial aging that a facelift may benefit.  Therefore, there are exceptions.  You mentioned several things that I…
What Are Potential Facelift Side Effects?
Facelift Side Effects/Complications
Sep 26, 2010
As with any surgery, there are several common side-effects including infection, bleeding, wound breakdown, and scar formation.  One specific complication that is potentially devastating in a facelift procedure is facial nerve injury leading to facial paralysis.  A permanent facial nerve injury resulting in a noticeable paralysis roughly occurs at a rate of 1%.  There are different types of facelift procedures ranging from skin tightening only to a deep-plane facelift…
Free TRAM Flap Vs. Pedicled TRAM Flap
Free TRAM vs Pedicle TRAM
Sep 24, 2010
The differences between the free TRAM and the pedicle TRAM are severalfold:

1) Free TRAM uses less muscle from the abdomen.

2) Free TRAM has a better blood supply.  The deep inferior epigastric artery is a more dominant blood supply to the abdominal region used in a TRAM flap then the superior epigastric vessles used in a pedicle TRAM.  This generally results in less fat necrosis in a free TRAM flap.  This really comes into significance for patients who are…

DIEP Flap Surgery Best for Natural Breast Reconstruction Results?
DIEP flap breast reconstruction
Sep 24, 2010
For patients undergoing mastectomy, there are two general methods of breast reconstruction : 1) Implant-based breast reconstruction, and 2) Autologous reconstruction using your own body tissues.  Which one is better depends on each individual situation and what the patient is interested in.  If you are considering autologous reconstruction using your own tissues, there are several options.  The most commonly used tissue is tha abdominal area.  There are other…
Better to Do Reconstruction at Same Time As Mastectomy, or Better to Wait?
Immediate vs Delayed Breast Reconstruction
Sep 24, 2010
This is a very good and highly debated question. Overall, I feel that immediate breast reconstruction is better from a cosmetic standpoint then delayed (in a majority of cases) and often times results in less procedures.  All this depends on the quality of the mastectomy performed, the collaboration of the surgical oncologist and plastic surgeon, and the potential need for post-mastectomy radiation.  Despite reports supporting the various sides, radiation will have a negative…
What’s Your Position on AlloDerm? Conservative Patient Has Severe Scarring in Implant
Alloderm breast capsular contracture
Sep 24, 2010
The track record for Alloderm has been really for breast reconstruction after mastectomy.  Patients who undergo a mastectomy and have implant-based breast reconstruction are at higher rates of capsular contracture versus patients who have implants for breast augmentation.  Does Alloderm decrease capsular contracture in breast reconstruction is being actively studied, but there is no conclusive evidence that the use of Alloderm will decrease the rate of high-grade capsular…
