Do I have tubular breasts? Will I be able to have full, round breasts with an augmentation? (Pho
Not Tubular Breasts
Jun 8, 2020
You do not have tubular breasts, but you do have a constricted infra-mammary crease and lower pole. A sub-muscular augmentation should be a good option. Always consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck! Dr. Gervais
Are my breasts tubular or am I just still developing?
Are My Breasts Still Developing?
Apr 2, 2020
Judging from your photos you do not have tubular breasts. You do have a modest asymmetry which is very common. Your breasts may continue to develop and change over the next months to several years. Once the breasts are fully developed and you have concerns, then meet with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your concerns. In the meantime, everything is normal. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.

Do I Need A Mini-Breast Lift?
Apr 2, 2020
Thank you for your photo. In short...No, you do not need a lift. A breast augmentation should give you the result you are looking for. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.
Am I a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
Apr 2, 2020
Dear Abby,  Thank you for your photos. You look like you could benefit from a rhinoplasty. Please get a consultation in person with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who is board certified. Best wishes and stay safe. Dr. Gervais.
Do I need an extended tummy tuck, circumferential tummy tuck or FDL tummy tuck with breast lift?
Tummy Tuck
Mar 31, 2020
Thank you for your photos. A thorough in person exam would be needed but it appears a full tummy tuck with rectus plication and liposuction to the hips and flanks would be very beneficial. In most cases this can be done with your breast surgery. Best wishes and stay healthy. Dr. Gervais.

How bad would the scarring be if I got my implants removed to go smaller with an areola reduction and a lift?
Mar 24, 2020
Dear mkm1997, Thank you for your photos and questions. It looks like you could be a very good candidate for a breast lift and smaller implant. What type of lift would be determined during your in person consultation. A donut lift may suffice but a vertical or full Wise patter may be needed. As a general rule these incisions heal very well. I would suggest visiting the surgeons website to see examples of their work Good luck. Dr. Gervais.
Will implants be necessary to achieve the best results?
Implants with a Lift?
Mar 24, 2020
Dear Username2299, Thank you for you photo and questions. Based on your photo I believe that you would benefit from a breast lift with an implant. It will give you more upper pole fullness and a perkier look and feel. Good luck. Dr. Gervais.
How do I fix my uneven waist-to-hip shape?
360 Liposuction
Mar 10, 2020
Dear Ribahey, Thank you for your question and photos. A thorough in person exam will be needed. Based on you photos I believe that circumferential liposuction of your abdomen, hips and flanks would be a great way to even out your figure/shape. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who has done hundreds if not thousands of liposuction procedures. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.
Best procedure to fix loose skin and stretch marks from pregnancy?
Tummy Tuck
Mar 10, 2020
Dear Kay9515, It appears to me that you would be an excellent candidate for a tummy tuck. Good luck. Dr. Gervais
Can I have your opinion on uneven breasts with constricted bands?
Breast Asymmetry and Augmentation
Feb 12, 2020
NLT4, Thank you for your photos and questions. It appears from your photos that you do have asymmetry between your breasts. This is a very common thing that I see every day.  After reviewing your photos it does appear that you may need radial scoring but I'm not convinced yet about lowering your crease or the volume discrepancy. A thorough in person exam is needed to give you the best advice.I would suggest a second opinion consultation with another experienced board certified plastic s...
Just looking to see if I'm a good candidate for a mommy makeover or not?
Mommy Makeover
Feb 12, 2020
Thank you for your photos and questions. I agree with my colleagues that a small weight loss would benefit you with better results and diminished complications. That being said, it looks from your photos that an abdominoplasty and breast surgery (depending on how things turn out after weight loss) would be helpful. Be sure to see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.
Do you think a lift or implants needed to even out my areola and breasts?
Unilateral Lift with/without Implants
Feb 12, 2020
Dear Loveme215, Thanks for your photos and questions. Based on your photos I believe a lift on your left side should give you a more symmetrical appearance to your breasts(shape and nipple position). If you wish to be larger and fuller then we could place an implant on each side. Be sure to consult with an experienced breast surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais. 
What do you all recommend for me at 5'11 and 205 with more weight loss planned?
Abdominoplasty with Liposuction
Feb 12, 2020
Thank you for your photos and questions. Also, congratulations on your weight loss. In my opinion you would be an excellent candidate for an extended abdominoplasty with rectus tightening (mesh is overkill in my opinion) and liposuction to your hips. If you're interested, your chest wall and arms may also benefit from surgery but I would need to examine you after your weight loss is complete. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.
Should I choose a bigger implant since it will be under the muscle?
Should I Go With A Larger Implant?
Jan 27, 2020
  Dear Klauren2, Thank you for your question and photos. This a question I get asked frequently. From my experience (25 years and thousands of breast augmentations) I would suggest you go with a slightly larger implant. The implants frequently look smaller once they are inserted compared to when you are sizing in a bra. Best wishes. Dr. Gervais.
Can lipo 360 give me a tiny waistline I long for?
Can lipo 360 give me a tiny waistline I long for?
Dec 17, 2019
Dear China7423, Thank you for your photos and question. I think you could improve your tummy tuck results with liposuction to your hips, flanks and abdomen. I would suggest several consultations with experienced plastic surgeons. Be sure to discuss your expectations in detail. Best wishes and Happy Holidays. Dr. Gervais.
