We obtain color photographs of most patients before and after surgery. Preoperatively these photographs can be "imaged" or morphed in certain cases to give the patient a idea of what surgery might do. These images are not a guarantee of results, but intended to help you imagine the possibilities of plastic surgery. Imaging is particularly helpful for the following surgeries: rhinoplasty, liposuction, facelift, browlift , eyelid surgery.

Ask a Surgeon
Dr. Paul Parker participates in the ASPS Ask A Surgeon service. View responses to public questions below.
How soon safe it is.Liposuction
Most commonly, we will combine these procedures for efficiency--ie, one procedure, one anesthesia and one recovery. If that is not possible, discuss the timing with your plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist to see what they recommend. It may vary from patient to patient based on a variety of factors.
Anesthesia ConcernsBreast Augmentation
Not all the procedures we do require an anesthesiologist. For those that do (ie, general anesthesia or monitored sedation), we arrange an anesthesia consultation to meet with our anesthesiologist be sure we proceed with safety.
Breast Reduction CorrectionBreast Reduction
I would think breast augmentation is your best option. Discuss your displeasure with your surgeon as well as options such as augmentation.
Cold water should not affect the survival of the fat grafts . Be sure to discuss postop instructions with your surgeon however to be sure that you and they are on the same page.
How dangerous is the Brazilian Butt lift surgery?Body Contouring
Fat injected into the subcutaneous tissue of the buttocks should be a safe procedure in well trained hands. Once that fat survives and becomes incorporated into your existing buttock tissues, it should last a long time. This should give a natural look. Filler substances are not likely to provide a good long term solution for the buttocks.
I Still look Pregnant but I am notTummy Tuck
It sounds as if you may be a candidate for a tummy tuck. Obtain a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon near you. They will evaluate you and discuss potential options to address your concerns.
Rupture removalBreast Augmentation
It would make sense to replace both implants at the same procedure since they have been in place for 29 years.
Is it safeMommy Makeover
Multiple procedures can be performed safely by a well trained , board certified plastic surgeon experienced in the procedures being performed. This should be done in a hospital of fully certified ambulatory surgical center with a board certified anesthesiologist or equivalent present. Carefully review the plan with your surgeon so the procedures can be staged to minimize anesthesia time.
Since you've had gynecomastia for 3 years it is unlikely it will go away be itself. Best advice is to obtain a face to face consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. They can examine you and discuss treatment options. Their staff can also provide you with costs for the procedure. This will vary based on geographic location, the surgeon as well as the specifics of what is being done.
Health issueMommy Makeover
Type 2 diabetes in and of itself does not rule you out for having a mommy makeover. Best advice is to obtain a face to face consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. They will examine you and discuss options. In addition, they will require a note of medical clearance from you primary care physician.
Breast Reduction Vs Bellasoma MethodBreast Reduction
Plastic surgeons often do things somewhat differently from one another. A breast reduction from DD to C cup will involve a lift as well. How that is achieved will vary based on the surgeon. I have found a vertical reduction and lift to provide excellent shape to the breasts afterwards.
smooth implantsBreast Augmentation
There is some movement of both types of implants, particularly when placed under both breast and muscle. This movement is temporary during exercise and as soon as the patient stops, the implant returns to its original position. This does not usually present a problem for the patient.
Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon. They will listen to your concerns, examine you, discuss the procedure of breast implant removal, otherwise known as explantation, and recovery from it.
It's not clear to me if a mammogram done 5 months ago allowed the diagnosis of a ruptured implant. If a mammogram was done 5 months ago, should not need another one now. If not, it makes sense to have a mammogram prior to implant removal.
Breast reductionBreast Reduction
It is unlikely that your implants are causing your hypertension. You should discuss this with your pcp to be sure your blood pressure is under good control and if there is any underlying cause for it.
Loose skin between breastsBreast Augmentation
Not really sure what is going on with out an exam or picture. I suggest you return to your surgeon to discuss you concerns with them as well as be examined. You should be able to learn what is going on and what can be done to rectify it.
My breast was injured by my 130 lb dobermanBreast Augmentation
Given your history, it makes sense to return back to your surgeon for an evaluation. They will examine you and determine if additional testing is necessary such as and ultrasound, MRI, etc.
Best to discuss these issues with your surgeon. They will want you pcp to be sure your blood pressure is under good control prior to your procedure. Your surgeon can also discuss the option of addressing your breast implants at the same time or staging these procedures.
New lifeBreast Reduction
If your son's gynecomastia has been present for more than a year of two, it is unlikely to resolve by itself. Obtain a face to face consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon so he can be examined and treatment options discussed.
Will i asleep doing breast augmentation surgery with slicone breast implantsBreast Augmentation
Most surgeons will have the patient receive general anesthesia for breast augmentation. We have out patients wear a sports bra for support in the first few weeks following breast augmentation. Once fully healed, you should be able to resume all activities , including marathon running following your surgery. Discuss all of this with your surgeon so that they can answer these questions directly.
