Why does my belly button look unnatural?
Is my belly button unnatural after a tummy tuck?
Mar 7, 2019
3 months postoperative is actually a decent amount of time for healing to have occurred after surgery -- in fact I take all of my postoperative photos at 3 months, so you are justified in your concerns.  It is hard to say for certain if your belly button is "good or bad" without seeing your preoperative belly button; however, I do see your observation of the heart shape.  Overall your result looks quite good.  If you were my patient and you were unhappy with the belly button I would tell yo...
Is there a procedure to transfer breast/back/belly fat into the butt?
Can I transfer fat into my butt?
Mar 7, 2019
Yes, there is a procedure to transfer fat into the buttocks.  It is called a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and it traditionally uses fat from liposuction of the abdomen, waist, flanks, and back.  Breast liposuction is not really very common.  Costs can vary DRAMATICALLY throughout the nation.  You might be able to get a BBL for $3500 in Miami but it might cost you $12,000+ in New York.  Be sure to find a board certified Plastic Surgeon with experience with this surgery.  It can be danger...
What can I do to remove fat from under my breast that sit on my ribs. I was thinking abou
What to do about fat on the ribs below the breasts?
Mar 7, 2019
Excellent question!  Fat deposits in this area are VERY common.  It is an important area to address because if you don't, it will "stick out like a sore thumb" after a liposuction or tummy tuck/liposuction procedure.  The best way to treat these fat deposits is with straight-up liposuction.  Be sure to find a board certified Plastic Surgeon you can trust for your procedure! 
Do you send your patients to get preoperative plastic surgery test before their breast au
Preop tests before breast augmentation
Feb 9, 2019
I send every patient for preoperative labs, regardless of age.  These include a blood count (CBC), electrolytes (BMP), and blood clotting tests (PT/PTT/INR).  If a patient has any health problems, I may check other labs such as hemoglobin A1C in a diabetic.  I will also check nutrition labs (albumin, prealbumin, protein) on surgical weight loss patients.  All patients over the age of 50 get a chest X-ray and EKG in addition to labs.  Most basic labs and tests are usually covered by a pati...
How can I look up the expiration date on my implants?
Do breast implants expire?
Feb 9, 2019
Breast implants do not have expiration dates.  There are no rules or official recommendations on their replacement either.  The need for replacement is a clinical decision made by your surgeon with the help of diagnostic tools such as breast MRI (to detect rupture).  If you are happy and healthy with no issues from your breast implants, they do not need to be removed and replaced within any time limit.
Is 600cc saline HP unders too large?
600mL implant too large?
Feb 9, 2019
In short, yes, it would appear to me that 600mL high profile implants would be way too large for you.  Nothing takes the place of an in-person examination; however, you appear small with narrow shoulders in your photos.  I am not sure a 600mL implant will fit into your breasts (it will probably be way too wide, even in high profile form).  Your breasts are also quite small and would have a hard time "accepting" such a large implant.  One thing is certain, if you choose 600mL implants, you...
Which implant size suits my body?
Which implant size suits my body?
Feb 9, 2019
Choosing your implants is one of the most important parts of a breast augmentation.  My advice to you is to have a general idea of what you want in terms of size, then spend as much time as necessary in your Plastic Surgeon's office trying on sizers until you feel comfortable with your choice.  Do not let your surgeon or their office staff tell you what implants to choose, and do not leave the decision up to your surgeon to be made in the operating room (you will NOT be happy).  I spend sig...
Had a bbl done in July of 2018 I have gained a lot of weight if I lose the weight will I
Will my butt shrink if I lose weight after a BBL?
Feb 9, 2019
When you lose weight, all the fat cells in your body get smaller, from head to toe (they do not die, they just shrink).  Fat that was transferred into your buttocks can and will shrink with weight loss; however, you will still likely always see a difference in your butt because you had the BBL.  So what I am saying is yes, your butt might get smaller after losing weight despite having a BBL in the past.  But because you had the BBL, you will always have a more augmented look as opposed to ne...
Should I replace implants when having a breast lift?
Should I replace implants when having a breast lift?
Feb 9, 2019
You ask a great question.  Breast implants do not have an exact expiration date.  They do not need to be removed and replaced at 10 years like many believe is the case, as long as the patient is not having any symptoms and the implants appear to be intact (it is recommended that the patient gets an MRI of her breasts 5 years after implantation, then every 2-3 years thereafter to monitor for rupture).  In your case, I might actually recommend that you do get new implants because they are 8 ye...
Is it safe to have Abdominoplasty (back and flanks lipo), with upper and lower Blephs at
Tummy Tuck and Blepharoplasty at the same time?
Feb 9, 2019
As long as you are in good health and you have been evaluated by a reputable board certified Plastic Surgeon who feels you are a candidate for your surgeries, then yes, you can absolutely have a tummy tuck with liposuction and an upper and lower blepharoplasty done during the same surgery.  Recovery will not be affected.
I want to have a tummy tuck and with that fat from my stomach i wanted it transferred to
Tummy tuck and BBL at the same time?
Feb 9, 2019
A tummy tuck done at the same time as a Brazilian Butt Lift is perfectly fine.  Both surgeries are safe as long as they are performed by a board certified Plastic Surgeon whom you have vetted by checking their reviews and reputation.  Recovery from both of these surgeries at the same time is probably among the most difficult of all surgeries we perform because you have to stay off your butt and your belly for up to 4 weeks; however, patients are very creative and use special BBL pillows to...
Can I get a recurring hernia repair with Tummy tuck combined? Is there any risk
Hernia repair with a Tummy Tuck?
Feb 9, 2019
It is definitely possible to repair a hernia at the same time as a doing a tummy tuck.  It happens all the time in my practice.  Having done a general surgery residency myself, I will often repair smaller hernias when I perform the tummy tuck; however, for large hernias or recurrent hernias, I often enlist the help of a practicing general surgeon.  My advice is to visit with a plastic surgeon.  He or she will tell you what they think in terms of your hernia.  I would personally send you to a...
Am I a good candidate for smart lipo, CoolSculpting, or tummy tuck? I'm 57 years old, 5’1
Tummy tuck, lipo, or cool sculpt?
Feb 9, 2019
Based on your photos, coolsculpting will be of no benefit.  I would also say that more liposuction alone won't help you achieve the tight and toned look.  My recommendation would be a full tummy tuck with Lipo 360 (liposuction of the abdomen, waist, flanks, back bra rolls).  It is the only thing that will tighten your bulging belly muscles, removed excess skin, and also clean up some of the areas that already had liposuction.
How much weight can I lose from tummy tuck surgery?
How much weight will I lose from a tummy tuck?
Jan 15, 2019
A tummy tuck is not a weight loss surgery.  It is a "look better" surgery.  Do not go into a tummy tuck +/- liposuction looking forward to stepping on a scale after 3-6 months to see how much weight you lost.  I tell my patients that you might lose 5-6 pounds (some might lose less, some might lose a bit more) depending on how much excess skin you have and how much excess fat gets suctioned out with liposuction.  But do NOT expect anything significant in that department.  What you CAN ...
Does medicaid pay for tummy tucks after c-sections?
Does medicaid pay for a tummy tuck after a C-section?
Jan 15, 2019
No they do not.  A tummy tuck is a cosmetic procedure and no health insurance will pay for it.
