fat grafting or filler after permanent filler removal?
Lipofilling better in your situation
Feb 23, 2014
Dear Angel, as you have scar tissue to deal with I would absolutely recommend lipofilling over any artificial filler. Ther is a good chance that the fat, which contains stem cells, will improve your skin quality. Good luck 🙂
oc said that he makes lift a little tight to account for the muscle relaxing in the first few month
Nov 1, 2013
Dear lady, your surgeon probably refers to the relaxation living tissues always undergo after having been put under tension. The first few weeks the situation usually is excessively tight, which relaxes down to a normal situation, if performed correctly.Good luck 🙂
What is the Average cost for 3 procedures done at once?
Cost about € 6000 with polyurethane covered implants, but wouldn’t correct nipples at same time
Nov 1, 2013
Dear Roxy,you’ve already read my answer in the title, but to explain : I would advise against correcting inverted nipples during breast lifting surgery as it puts the blood supply to the nipple at risk, and also increases the risk of bacterial contamination of the implant.The mastopexy+augmentation can be performed in one time, and we use routinely polyurethane covered implants which protect greatly against capsular contracture and have a better position stability. Unfortunately these…
Whats The Chance of Capsular Contracture Happening Twice?
Same capsular contracture rate with same implants
Sep 9, 2013
Dear Valerie Marie, although there are some predisposing factors independent from the implant such as haematoma or dormant infection, the chances for you to develop a contracture are exactly the same as after the first operation.

The only implants which have a significantly lower CC rate are the ones with a coating of polyurethane foam. I know that unfortunately these are not available anymore in the USA, although they were used extensively in the nineties.

We offer these…

Would I Be a Good Candidate for a Tummy Tuck & BBL? Am 4’11 & Around 112 Lbs.
You’re a good candidate, but ask where the scar will come
Apr 1, 2013
Dear lady,

it looks indeed like you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck, although there seems not to be a tremendous amount of skin excess. This means that if your surgeon wants to eliminate all the stretch marks below your belly button, there is a chance the scar will come quite high above your pubis.

Make sure you discuss this with your surgeon before the surgery to avoid disappointment.

Good luck!

Swollen Lips After Surgiderm –
too early to worry
Apr 1, 2013
Dear lady,

it is not uncommon for the lips to swell quite impressively after a hyaluronic acid injection. This is probably mostly due to the trauma of the injection and should go away in a few days.

If after a week the lips are still grossly swollen, go see your doctor, he knows what he has done.

If worst comes to worse hyaluronic acid can always be neutralized with hyaluronidase.

Do You Think 475cc Hp Silicone Subpectoral Would Be Too Big for Someone 5’3” ?
Depends on frame and personal preference
Apr 1, 2013
Apart from your frame size, which definitely limits the maximum size implants, this is a matter of personal preference and life style.

You need to know that bigger implants

weigh more (possible discomfort when running)

are more likely to result in ptosis (hanging)

are more likely to give decreased sensitivity

distort the natural breast shape more

make you look “bigger”

If taking all this into account, you still want to go for the look you have…
