Doctor’s answers

Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Need your advice about a breast augmentation. Nearby or out of town?
Local is beat
Nov 26, 2016
Today there are many good local doctors.  Going away is a mistake.  I treat a lot of out of town mistakes.  Pluse to take legal action you need a local lawyer in the state of treatment.  Don’t be fooled by East coast and West coast advertising.  Is 90% bogus and 10% lies.  I know.  
Am I able to get away with just implants?
Mastopexy scars
Nov 19, 2016
Revommending a mastopexy procedure on a dark complexioned patient is looking for scar trouble. I know we like scars.  But I hope this pretty lady understand the consequences of all this free advice.  Adding 150 cc to breast implants size is usually disappointing.  This lady just wants bigger implants. 
I know I have mild ptosis and deflated breasts but is the lift really necessary right now?
Ptosis or pseudo ptosis
Nov 11, 2016
Your nippes are above the mammary fold.  The breast gland is beneath the fold.  This is pseudo ptosis. All you need is an implant.  The breasts are deflated.  An implant will solve the problem.  
Is There a Procedure to Just Reduce Earlobe Size and How Much is Cost?
Ear height reductin
Aug 2, 2016
Yes,  the vertical ear height can be reduced.  The procedure is much more complicated than earlobe reduction.  The ear is split and the conchal cavity is reduced as well as the earlobe. It is a very successful procedure performed by plastic surgeons who understand the ear anatomy. 
18 weeks post op and left breast hasn’t dropped
Brando needed
Jun 22, 2016
Apply a “bando” over chest.  Position over left side and under right side.  It will push the left breast down.   Wear 24/7 faithfully to get any result.  
How long after breast augmentation is it safe to have sex?
Sex after Breast surgey
Jun 14, 2016
I tell my patients that there are two kinds of sex.  Wife sex and mistress sex.  Wife sex is safe.  Mistress sex is 6 weeks later.  Get it?
Labiaplasty gone wrong? Help.
out of control
Dec 22, 2015
Whoa! Slow down.
We cannot evaluate, judge, or comprehend any surgical result at one week
post op. You have lost all confidence in your doctor. You need to
listen to the Doc and wait until the swelling resolves. It take 6 to 8
weeks to begin to see any result. Then the two of you can discuss any adjustments.
Please wait and listen to the Doctor.
Do I need to stop smoking before and when can I smoke again after breast surgery?
Smoking ?
Nov 14, 2015
Why is anyone asking doctors to give them permission to kill themselves smoking. No good doctor will agree to patient’s smoking. Get a life and stop being an addict. You’ll thank me when you reach 90. I’m intolerant of addictions. As an ex smoker I know I’m right. There is no reason for humans to suck burning tobacco ash into their lungs. Sorry if this hurts to hear, but the truth will set you free.
Shortness of breath/chest/back pain after BA?
Chest problems
Aug 9, 2015
Cal your doctor. You need to go to emergency and be checked. You need to be examined and a chest x ray. If that is normal then your doctor canadjust pain meds.
Will this ever heal correctly without much scar tissue?
Nipple necrosis
Jul 3, 2015
Are you a smoker. First question. Skin loss is common in smokers otherwise the nipple flap was too thin. Wait it will heal better than it looks now
What is the alternative to surgery if you get capsular contracture? Do you recommend surgery?
Contracture alternatives
Apr 27, 2015
I routinely recommend Singulair and Vitamin E. The bando 24/7 is a necessity also. I follow my patients closely and use the medications for 6 months. Surgery is expensive and often fails. It is my last resort. Close follow up and patient cooperation is absolute. Just like hand reconstruction. If there is no patient commitment and doctor evaluation there will be no good result. Often a contracture will change sides from the right to left breast. Go figure…
Can I choose how much ccs of saline I want? Or is the doctor’s choice?
Breast size
Apr 19, 2015
Yes the doctor can refuse to operate on you. If the result is the wrong size then the doctor is blamed by the patient. In my practice my patients select the cc’s. I may agree or not. If I really don’t agree then I tell them. But I often place 800 ccimplants which I think is nutty. But the girls love them and they want the BIG look. I get more complaints about small breast size not too big. You need a different doctor. Good luck.
Are my fears of losing the implants unreasonable and does this look consistent with a localized skin/w
Skin red
Apr 19, 2015
This is very common. You will need close follow up with the plastic surgeon. ER is not the place to help plastic surgery patients as the ER docs have no idea about what we do. Your doctor is your best guide. If you lost faith then take your records to a different plastic surgeon who is American board certified in plastic surgery
Not happy w/ my BA, will they ascend? 11days PO. I want them to look perky not droopy. Can they heal l
Apr 19, 2015
At 11 days there is still time to make small adjustments in the breast position. Bras can adjust level and inferior tape support can elevate the lower breast i hope your doctor can help
Is my wound healing after necrosis?
Nipple skin loss
Apr 19, 2015
This necrotic problem will heal. Revisions will be needed after a year. Don’t rush. There are many ways to correct nipple loss
