Doctor’s answers

Question
Answer Header & Date
Answer Snippet
Would I be a good candidate for a breast reduction?
You have to ask.
Mar 3, 2016
Based on the pictures you are a good candidate for the breast reduction . If the insurance does not cover it you can pay cash for it. You have to first see if breast reduction is covered by your insurance, then you have to be evaluated to see if you fit there criteria , then the insurance company will answer. If no see how much it cost you may be able to afford it.The question not asked , is never answered. 
Will I have a wide spaced result with breast augmentation?
Gap
Mar 2, 2016
If the correct diameter implants are matched to your chest then the space in the middle should be aesthetically pleasing. There will always be a space if done properly ,to avoid a wide space the implant diameter should be close to the base width diameter of the breast.
What the difference between a regular tummy tuck and a hour glass tummy tuck? I’m talking about a
Marketing
Mar 2, 2016
An hour glass tummy tuck sounds better than a regular tummy tuck.The goal of an abdominoplasty is to improve the appearance of the abdomen . The sides will come in some if the muscle is tightened and that will make it more ‘ hour glass ‘ shape . So the doctor who proposed this hour glass tummy tuck is trying to out Market everyone else.
How Long Will It Take Getting Over Surgery?
Recovery
Mar 2, 2016
Everyone is different but with the two surgeries you are having 2-4 weeks . Getting up and around the house 1-2 days after surgery and take it easy for the next week. Then a gradual  increase in activity over the next week and possible go back to a desk job at 2 weeks. If it is a more rigorous job it could take 2-4 weeks more .
Second opinion for a mastopexy implant?
Low nipples
Mar 1, 2016
Without pictures it is hard to say what you should do. The nipples had to have been raised if you had a mastopexy and the scar had tobe around the nipple and below it. The periareolar mastopexy alone does not work…  You need to have a consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to determine what is best and probable have the surgery done by someone other than the first doctor.
Implants moved closer together – can that be reversed?
Synmastia.
Mar 1, 2016
If the implants are too close together the base width diameter of the implant is probable too large for your chest. Yes the implants can be changed again.  It may be beneficial to place the implants in the submuscular plane because the ones you have are likely in the submammary plane.
I’m 19, size 34DD and have saggy boobs. Should I get a breast lift?
Ptosis- saggy breast
Feb 26, 2016
To get an attractive breast you would need a breast lift. Augmentation alone would not look ideal.The lift result in a scar around the areola and down the middle of the breast to the infra mammary crease.
Will my abdominal scar complicate tummy tuck?
Previous scar.
Feb 25, 2016
Any scar on the abdomen can make a tummy tuck more difficult but it should not preclude the surgery. A board certified Plastic Surgeon should be able to modify the surgery to bring about a substantial improvement in the appearance of the abdomen.Now if you said leave no scars or that you only would do it if the scar was the same as a standard abdominoplasty scar the doctor may have not wanted to operate because he or she thought you could not be satisfied by the outcome.
Would 450cc Implants achieve this look?
Cleavage
Feb 25, 2016
With the poor quality of the pictures and the likelihood that the measurements are not accuate, I do not think a recommendation can be made. You should have a consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to get a reasonable point of view.
Being under the age of 22, are saline implants my only option?
Saline or Silicone for those under 22
Feb 23, 2016
The FDA has approved  Silicone implants only for those 22 and over.The rupture rate for saline implants is the same as or silicone. There are no need for "excessive exams" for saline implants, with silicone per the FDA the patient is to be followed more closely that the saline implant patient. There is a new implant, the Ideal Implant that is designed   for the patient with thinner tissue and to feel more like the silicone implant only it has salinein it , that implant may…
Making my final surgical selection this week. I need an opinion on the ‘average’ price.
Price
Feb 22, 2016
If you procedures include the Anesthesia fee, Operating room fee and the Surgeons fe for all the procedures you listed it probable is reasonable.
How much is it to repair a ripped ear? Just a little rip, left ear. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Ear lobe
Feb 22, 2016
To repair the ” ripped ” ear lobe would cost $6-900 , for an in office procedure under local anesthesia.
Liposuction worth it?
Lipo
Feb 22, 2016
Based on you pictures you would be a relatively good candidate for liposuction. The skin does not look too loose, however to be sure you need to be evaluated by a board certified Plastic Surgeon.
Who is the top breast doctor in Indy or Chicago land area?
Too Big?
Feb 22, 2016
At only three months after surgery you may want to wait before downsizing.  To change to a smaller implant it is not a difficult procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgery web site can help you in locating a surgeon. 
I am planning on having a Tummy Tuck, BBL, Lipo with a breast lift and implants. Any suggestions?
To stage or not to stage, that is the question.
Dec 20, 2015
Yes you should not lay on the breast implants ,especially right after the procedure. You should not lay or sit on the buttocks after the BBL . The tummy tuck done at the same time is also a factor and you should do as little twisting as possible.I believe it is better to not do the breast and buttock at the same time. The procedures done all at the same time will take considerable time and complications go up as the time increases. Also pain in multiple areas at the same time will make it…
