Am I good candidate for breast augmentationBreast Augmentation
Hi Peepy25 If you are in good health, you should be a good candidate for a breast augmentation. I think that you would likely benefit from a breast lift (mastopexy) as well. I suggest that you find a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss options. All the best. esk
I regret my breast augmentation the next dayBreast Augmentation
Hi Jadie So sorry to hear about your regrets. The implants can be removed just about any time. I would suggest however that have an open and honest discussion with your surgeon to share your concerns. It may not be the best idea to make big decisions right after surgery/anesthesia when you are recovering and on meds. Remember, your surgeon is you partner in this so listen to him, and be sure he hears you too! All the best. sek
Zafirlukast (Accolate) and PirfenidoneBreast Augmentation
Hi Josey I have used Accolate a number of times and have found that it does work. I does not always work, and it may not work 100%, but it is worth a try if your doctor feels you are a candidate. Also, Vitamin E in combination is helpful, so ask your surgeon. Fortunately, a grade II CC is not bad at all. Best of luck to you. sek
Should these be reclosed?Tummy Tuck
Hi Bellarosa You have undergone a couple of very large operations and are suffering known complications of wound healing. I think all plastic surgeons with a lot of experience have had these complications with patients at some time or another, and I too have experience with them. If you were my patient, I would not attempt to close the wounds due to the high risk of infection and possibly, loss of more tissue. I would give you local wound care instructions, follow you closely, and if needed (not always needed), would plan for a scar revision in about a year after the wounds close. You didn't mention the wound care protocol your doctor put you on so I can't comment. If you are producing a lot of fluid, and the dressing changes are truly painful and not sustainable, you may want to ask your doctor about a VAC negative pressure device as an alternative. This would be for you and your doctor to determine, but is an alternate thought for you. This isn't as bad as it looks!nPatience
Fleur Des LesTummy Tuck
You can't know, as this is a surgical decision based on training, education, and experience. You might want to interview each surgeon to discuss, or even seek a 4th. Sorry for the confusion, this is a huge decision however.
difference between mini facelift and lower faceliftFacelift
Hi Sally. A "mini" typically refers to a cheek lift only, while a lower facelift refers to a cheek and neck lift. Thread lifts are less invasive, less effective, and don't hold up as long. In my opinion they may be useful in patients with minimal signs of aging. Hope this helps. sek
Explant of under muscle implants under localBreast Implant Removal
I do this quite frequently and it is well tolerated. For anxious people, I prescribe Xanax pre-op You may call my office to ask for a quote if you would like. sek
Hernia repair and tummy tuckTummy Tuck
I do them all the time. Of course it depends on the hernia. I feel very comfortable fixing umbilical hernias at the same time. If the hernia seems complex OI will opt to have a general surgeon go in with me. Your safety is my first concern.
How crucial are overlapping edges of cut skin?Wound Care
Hi Andalay. Admittedly, this doesn't look pretty right now, however it will get better over time. If you were my patient I would advise you to hold tight and let it heal for about 9 months to a year. If at that time you are unhappy with the appearance, then go for a scar revision. This time, go to a plastic surgeon, or a different plastic surgeon. In the mean time, keep it out of the sun and get a good scar cream with silicone. Don't stress, for now, it will get better, or can be redone. sek
Silicone implants at 18 ?Breast Augmentation
It is true that Silicone breast implants are cleared for use in patients who are 22 years of age and older. There are a couple of exceptions, including deformities, etc. I don't agree with this policy, but here is the thing. When I agree to use the product, I agree to follow the rules. This is just me, and not a reference to anybody in specific, but I feel if I "cheated" by putting the device in patients that they are specifically not cleared for, how could I expect my patients to ever trust me to do the right thing for them? The answer is, I couldn't.
ExplantBreast Implant Removal
The answer to your question is yes rarely. The proper question is, given that a pre-op MRI was performed, ALL implants/implant material would have been known to the surgeon, so why wasn't it removed? I suggest that you gather hard copies of pre and post-op MRI's and get a second opinion. Something doesn't add up at all. sek
