Answer Snippet
Why do I have to pay out of pocket if my insurance approved my procedure?
Approved but still out of pocket expense.
Jun 6, 2018
One of two scenarios are at play here. One, your plastic surgeon is charging additional for something that is not approved by insurance. This is legitimate but should be discussed with you. This practice can be deceptive if the patient is not told up front that this is going on. Second, the plastic surgeon may be charging above what the contracted rate is which is usually a violation of contract agreement. You are right by asking the question, because…
Uneven breast implants. Advice? 3 weeks p.o.
3 weeks after Breast Augmentation with uneven breasts
Apr 9, 2018
Assessment of breast 3 weeks after surgery can be stressful as each side may heal and progress at a different rate. I can see why you would be concerned based on the limited photos you provided, but one should not be overly concerned at 3 weeks. You still should have post operative swelling that may resolve at different rates. Physical examination by an experienced surgeon should be able to tell more than the photos do. My recommendation is to see your plastic surgeon…
Is 63 too old for breast surgery?
Never too old for Breast Surgery
Oct 20, 2017
Breast surgery should never be limited by the age of a patient. A surgeon placing that limit is not comfortable for some reason and, as such, probably should not be your surgeon. What does matter is your health and fitness. Plus, measures can be taken to reduce your risk of undergoing breast surgery by adjusting the medications used during anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon should collaborate with the anesthesia provider to reduce risk.
Would I need a tummy tuck or just liposuction?
Liposuction vs Tummy Tuck
Oct 14, 2017
Liposuction and tummy tuck treat 2 different problems. Liposuction is done to remove fat from beneath this skin. Tummy tuck is to remove excess skin. Some patients benefit from both. Your pictures show excess skin as your main issue therefore a tummy tuck is the better choice for you. A thorough physical exam would determine if you would also benefit from liposuction.
Breast augmentation or fat transfer?
Fat grafting vs breast implants
Jul 27, 2017
Fat grafting to the breast should be reserved for refinement and touch-ups in my opinion. Even with perfectly identical implants, patients are sometimes troubled by mild asymmetries of their breasts after augmentation simply because anatomy is sometimes asymmetrical and presents additional challenges. Fat grafting is much less perfect and predictable than identical implants. More fat may survive on one side than the other. Fat may not remain in the location you put…
Is my belly button infected?
Doesn’t appear infected
Jul 27, 2017
I appreciate your concern for infection. A face to face physical exam by an experienced plastic surgeon provides the best opportunity to diagnose an infected belly button. There does not appear to be sign of infection in the photo you posted. It’s not unusual for patients to develop some redness around stitches placed in the skin but that does not represent infection per se. If you are truly concerned, make a visit to your plastic surgeon.
300cc implants. Loose skin & no volume at the top. Feel unhappy 6 months post op?
Why this happened…
Jul 20, 2017
It’s unfortunate that you have a result with which you are unhappy. Your post operative result is not necessarily predictable but one that can be explained to some degree. First, it would be good to know if your implants were placed dual plane, submuscular, or subglandular. Each of those techniques result in a different cosmetic outcome. Second, what type of implants do you have? That would also shed great light on this scenario. It appears that your…
I would like to avoid breast lift. Only breast augmentation. What do you think, is it possible o
Breast Augmentation without Breast lift
Jan 26, 2017
Breast lifts are done obviously because the nipple and areola complex (NAC) have descended below either the inframammary fold, or simply below what is cosmetically desired. Breast augmentation does lift the NAC some but not a lot. One rule of thumb is to stand in front of a mirror chest exposed and raised your arms above your head. The lift you get with that maneuver is a good way to estimate the lift you will get with augmentation. The larger the implant, the greater…
Tummy Tuck, Upper Body Lipo, BBL, is it ok to have more than one surgery done at one time?
Multiple Surgeries, Same Day
Jan 12, 2017
Having multiple surgeries done the same day is becoming the norm as patients want to heal from multiple surgeries at the same time rather than heal multiple times having surgeries done different days. What is more important is the duration of surgery. Prolonged surgeries can lead to increased risk of complications. The experienced surgeon will not take quite as long to perform the same surgery as less experienced surgeons. Further, avoiding paralytics during the…
Rib pain after Breast Augmentation, how do I alleviate it?
Rib Pain After Breast Augmentation is not uncommon
Oct 11, 2016

Unfortunately rib pain after breast augmentation is not uncommon. The same pressure placed on the skin to accommodate an implant is pressing on the ribs. Then each time you breathe, that pressure increases during inhalation. Sometimes this leads to costochondritis which is inflammation of the cartilage on the ribs. This is the most common explanation for rib pain after run of the mill breast augmentation. Obviously asking your surgeon is key because…

Will a tuberous breast correction surgery affect my ability to breastfeed?
Correction of Tuberous Breasts Shoult Not Prevent Breastfeeding.
Sep 21, 2016
We know from our experience with breast reduction that breast surgery will not prevent a women from being able to breast feed, but it has the potential to reduce the available breast milk during breast feeding. This sometimes requires mothers to supplement with formula while still allowing immunological benefit from breast feeding. Tuberous breast deformity and breast reduction both require cutting some of the ducts needed for breast feeding and should have similar effect. …
What size implant would be best for me and would I need a lift also?
Absolutely, lift plus implant
Sep 10, 2016
Your photos demonstrate both ptosis (sagging breasts) and pseudoptosis (loss of upper pole fullness with descent of tissue). An implant is necessary to restore upper pole fullness and the lift to reposition the nipple and areola complex over the implant. Good luck.
Does this look normal on 12 days post op?
Very Early in Healing Phase
Mar 18, 2016
Your implants will definitely drop as time passes and your soft tissue expands.  What’s important is that you do Not wear a supportive bra.  Wearing a supportive bra will interfere with implant settling which will result in high implant position.  This may be the goal at times but not in your case.  Be patient.  This will improve.
