Case Studies
Breast Lift Surgery

This patient presented herself to the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville and Dr. Sam Richwine, Jr., unhappy with the size and shape of her breasts. At the time of her consult with Dr. Richwine, this patient had lost a significant amount of weight and wore a 36 D bra. After consulting with Dr. Richwine, the patient and Dr. Richwine decided that a breast augmentation and a breast lift would benefit this patient the most. During the surgery in the ambulatory surgery center at the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville, Dr. Richwine used 300 cc moderate profile saline breast implants which were filled to 330 cc's on the left side and 300 cc's on the right side. Dr. Richwine also performed a mastopexy (breast lift) on this patient as well. Postoperatively, this patient was very satisfied with the size and new shape of her breasts.

My nose was broken twice growing up and I also have a deviated septum that I have to use a C Pap machine for sleep. I was wondering if that could be repaired and since the broken nose never was treated would maybe the deviated septum repair call for a rhinoplasty. I have sinus problems, inside nose always burning, headaches, very sensitive to smells,

I have several moles on both sides of my face. Will there be permanent scars if I have them removed? How much will it cost? These moles are hereditary and not cancerous.

I am considering a Laser Specialist to do the laser skin resurfacing procedure. Any pro's or con's on this procedure and using a so called Laser Specialist ??

I am a 46 year old female. Over the past couple of years I have noticed that my right eye is slowly becoming smaller than my left eye. It is now quite noticeable. My family has now noticed and I'm panicking because I think something must be horribly wrong! It does not seem to be due to a drooping eyelid, rather the entire eye seems to have sunken back into my head. I realize that I've been unconsciously raising my right eyebrow in order to open up the eye more, but it looks strange. I know it isn't thyroid related because I take thyroid medication, I'm tested regularly, and my levels have been good and steady for years. I've been reading about possible conditions and one that stands out is something called Silent Sinus Syndrome. I know it's a rare condition, but when I look at photos and read about it, everything fits exactly. I've made an appointment with an ophthalmologist, but the wait is long and I won't be seen for three months! Whatever is going on, it seems to have worsened over the past few months. I'm afraid of how much worse it can get. Please help! What can I do?

Hi. My question is this: Should I wait to have this third surgery in a time span of 2 months? I lost both areoles along with my nipples two days after my re augmentation on April 13, 2016. I wanted nothing bigger than a D and nothing smaller than a C cup. I had D previous augmentation saline sub. Gummy bear under the muscle for this augmentation. Upon my post appointment two days after my surgery is when the plastic surgeon saw my tissue was black and blue. He told me my tissue had died and needed to be removed (nipples/areolas) A second operation to debride the area and rid from my infection was done 7 days post op. After my shock of loosing part of me, the ps said he put in 775cc/DDD. I was shocked yet again. I never asked for these huge implants. This is a board certified plastic surgeon 27 years of practice. It is now coming up on my third surgery to change the huge implants out for a C cup, and to make something of a nipple to be followed up with a tattoo for areola color.
