Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Is it possible to get a liposuction only without lipectomy if I exercise and lose weight?
Candidate for liposuction?
Apr 20, 2020
Thanks for the question.  With the limited photos, ( a side picture would be helpful) you may be a candidate for liposuction.  Your abdominal skin quality appears to be good but I cannot determine from the photo if you have a muscle separation.  If you do in fact have a muscle separation, that would require a muscle tightening to get a flat tummy.  Liposuction does not change the abdominal muscles and cannot correct a muscle separation.
Can gynecomastia surgery I had in 2005 be reversed?
Reversal of gynecomastia surgery
Apr 20, 2020
Thanks for the question.  Unfortunately, gynecomastia surgery cannot be reversed.  Perhaps a scar revision my improve your result.  I recommend consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate. 
Does a tummy tuck without muscle repair look the same as one with muscle repair?
Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair
Apr 14, 2020
Thanks for the question.  Many patients requesting a tummy tuck also have diastasis recti which means a separation of the rectus muscles resulting in a central abdominal bulge.  If this is not addressed at the time of the tummy tuck then the abdominal bulge will remain leaving the patient with a less than optimal result.  A plastic surgeon should be able to determine if you have diastasis recti.  This should be addressed at the time of your tummy tuck.
How long do I stay in surgery for a TT, BBL & liposuction of the body?
Tummy Tuck and BBL
Nov 15, 2019
Thanks for the question.  A tummy tuck, BBL and liposuction will typically take 4-6 hours depending on the number of liposuction areas you are having treated.  The more areas being treated the longer the procedure.  The areas typically treated with liposuction and a BBL are the waist and lower back which will improve the overall BBL result.  A tummy tuck and BBL are typically done under general anesthesia.  Liposuction can be done under local anesthesia but in combination with the BBL and ...
Do I need liposuction with my tummy tuck or will most of my skin/fat be removed?
Liposuction with a tummy tuck
Nov 5, 2019
Thanks for the question.  I often recommend liposuction of the waist and back bra rolls to be done in combination with the tummy tuck procedure.  This will enhance your overall result while improving waist definition.  This can be done safely in combination with the tummy tuck procedure.
My BMI is 30. Is my BMI too high and also is there an alternative to a tummy tuck?
Tummy Tuck after emergency hysterectomy
Nov 5, 2019
Thanks for the question.  It sounds like you had a hysterectomy through a vertical lower midline incision resulting in the front butt appearance.  This would be corrected by a full tummy tuck procedure.  There is not alternative to a tummy tuck that will correct this issue.   The recovery from a tummy tuck procedure is improved with the use of the drainless technique and the Exparel for postoperative pain control.
I am a very young looking 65 year old. Other than hypothyroid I am in pretty good health.
Tummy Tuck in 65 year-old
Oct 31, 2019
Thanks for the question.  Age is not a contraindication for tummy tuck surgery.  The overall health status of the patient is the determining factor in whether or not a patient is a candidate for tummy tuck surgery.  Patients who are smokers or have cardiac or respiratory problems may not be candidates for tummy tuck surgery.  An in-office consultation is the best way to determine your eligibility for a tummy tuck procedure.
I take lexapro and birth control. How safe is general anesthesia for a rhinoplasty?
general anesthesia for rhinoplasty
Oct 31, 2019
Thanks for the question.  In most cases, I recommend general anesthesia for rhinoplasties.  General anesthesia allows for protection of your airway which is particularly important when working on your nose.  This prevents any blood or fluid from entering and compromising your airway during surgery.  In a minority of rhinoplasty cases when small changes are being made, local anesthesia or sedation can be used.  General anesthesia from a reputable provider in an accredited facility has a very...
Would I have enough fat for a Brazilian butt lift?
Donor sites for fat transfer
Oct 8, 2019
Thanks for the question.  You appear to have limited donor sites for fat transfer.  A in-person consultation will determine whether their are any other potential donor sites not seen in the photo.  Typically the waist and lower back is a good donor site and liposuction of those areas will enhance your overall result.  Good luck!!
I want Botox between my eyebrows for frown lines but concerned that injection would raise
Botox and Brow Position
Sep 20, 2019
Thanks for the question.  Treating the frown lines between the eyebrows typically involves treating the corrugator muscles that are responsible for the vertical lines between the eyebrow often referred to as the '11s'.  Treating this muscle will typically not affect the brow position in terms of raising or lowering the brow but can widen the space between the brows.  
What can I do to get smaller love handles?
treatment of love handles
Sep 10, 2019
Thanks for the question.  You are a good candidate for liposuction of the waist and back bra rolls.  Most patients need liposuction of both areas to get a complete result.  You appear to have a fold between the two areas which may improve with liposuction but may not completely resolve with treatment.
Upper lip crease happened this week after sleeping on face loss of elasticity What can be
Perioral wrinkles
Sep 9, 2019
Thanks for the question.  Perioral wrinkles are not addressed by a facelift procedure.  Fat grafting to perioral wrinkles in with both nanofat and microfat is your best option to address perioral concerns.
Looking for treatment of mouth wrinkles. Doctor told me a facelift would help. Thoughts?
Perioral wrinkles
Sep 7, 2019
Thanks for the question.  You are an ideal candidate for fat transfer with microfat and nanofat in the perioral area to address your concerns.  Sharp needle intradermal fat injection can provide long term results and address the wrinkling around the perioral area.  
What procedures are recommended to achieve perky and symmetrical breasts with minimal/lim
Breast Lift with Implant
Aug 27, 2019
Thanks for the question.  Based on your photos, you would most likely require an implant with a lift procedure.  The amount of scarring is dependent on the degree of lift that you require to achieve a good result.  I recommend doing an in-office consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine an individualized treatment plan.
What procedure or treatment would I need to look younger? My major concern is my lower fa
Facial Aging over 13 years
Aug 23, 2019
Thanks for the question.  Based on your photos, you have had structural changes to your face which would best be addressed by a facelift procedure.  Notice the changes in the shape of your face over the 13 years from a more angular, sharply defined lower face contour to a squarer contour with less definition now.  You also have lost some volume in the midface region over time which can be addressed at the time of the facelift as well.  You are a good candidate for a short scar facelift tha...
