Is there any way I can avoid a breast lift and just have the aug? Can I have a breast aug and lipo th
Lift vs aug
Jan 18, 2020
To decide if we need to lift or just augment a patient, we measure how far the nipple is from the collarbone and from the cold below each breast. If the skin hasn’t stretched and the measurements show that you only need more fill then just an augmentation is enough.
But if your skin has stretched and you have too much skin then an augmentation alone won’t look as good as an augmentation with lift.
looking at your pics it seems to me that you probably would benefit from a lift, but…

To stage or not to stage
Nov 9, 2019
It all depends on the patient. If you have lost a lot of weight and you need very extensive work done, then staging the liposuction and the tummy tuck is probably safer than doing both at once. The blood supply to your skin can be reduced by each of those two operations. Could it be done together? Yeah. But you would likely be at greater risk for complications if you do both together (ranging from wound healing issues to clots in your legs). It sounds to me like your…
Would I benefit from breast liposuction on my bigger breast?
It depends on your goals (and your exam)
Oct 10, 2019
Dear beautiful889
I like your question: you have clearly spent some time thinking about breast surgery options and have decided to do some thinking out of the box!
Breast lift surgery can be great, but it’s not for everyone. Scars are a concer (although they really are barely noticeable on most patients) and it’s indeed a bigger surgery than for example liposuction.
I believe liposuction of the breast is an underrated operation. For the right patient, it can reduce the…

Concerns with recalled Natrelle breast implants
Oct 3, 2019
Dear “idahoms”
the Natrelle textured implants that were recently recalled by the FDA have been associated with over 450 of the about 550 cases of patients who have developed a Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (a type of cancer associated to their implant). You correctly describe ALCL as a “blood cancer” and not a breast cancer. While this cancer can be very serious and has even led to over 30 deaths worldwide, you have to balance the risk of one additional surgery against…
I want to know what are the chances of losing a nipple after an FTM top surgery?
The risk for nipple necrosis depends on the anatomy, risk factors and technique used
Sep 23, 2019
You pose a really interesting question. I am sorry you had a complication – no one likes complications and on FTM top confirmation surgery nipple necrosis is really, really frustrating because the whole goal of the surgery is to make you look and feel great even without a shirt on.
Having said that, there is no easy answer for your question. Blood supply to the nipple after surgery can be reduced by many factors: size of breast and nipple, but also position of the nipple, overall health,…
Should I be concerned with getting the tummy tuck/mommy makeover?
You bring up a valid concern – the answer depends on your anatomy
Sep 23, 2019
Hi Davine:
I like your question. Your previous history of 5 previous intra-abdominal surgeries can certainly put you at risk for adhesions and SBO. A tummy tuck/mommy makeover is not an intra-abdominal surgery and should not cause any problems with your bowels – unless you have additional issue with your anatomy: if you have a hernia then it can require abdominal wall reconstruction in addition to the routine tummy tuck. The most common hernia I see during tummy tucks is umbilical but we…
