Question: If I need a Breast lift, arm lift, and thigh lift, could I get all three procedures done at the same time?
Answer: It is possible, but there are a number of factors that will affect the final decision including the extent of the amount of surgery and the areas involved, your overall health, and current weight.  Of course, all of these questions can be answered during a consultation, which would be necessary before your surgery anyway.  I would be very happy to discuss this further with you and invite you to call my office manager, Denise, to schedule a consultation.  I hope this helps and have a wonderful day! :)
Question: Hi, I have 2 sets of natural, fraternal twins. First set are 28 months and the second are 8 months old. I have already lost all the baby weight from both pregnancies but I still have a large amount of saggy skin around my tummy. I have read that the likely hood of getting large amounts of skin to shrink is impossible without surgery. Is that true? Or what would be the best thing to do? I am 28 and feel like my body is that of a 70 year old and would love to my tight 25 year old body back!
Answer: Well, first of all, congratulations on your successful pregnancies and I can only imagine how much stretch your tummy went through! Without photos, however, it's hard to fully determine the extent of your skin stretch but, for the most part, most women in your situation benefit from skin reduction surgery. I do agree that a tummy tuck may very well be an appropriate procedure for you but I would need to evaluate you in person to make the final determination. You are more than welcome to visit my website and should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our office and speak with any one of our staff members. I do look forward to meeting you should you decide to schedule a consultation. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day.
Question: Hi, I am doing research on breast lift and breast reduction surgery. I've read about the Laser Bra technique - unlike typical breast lift surgeries, the patient's breast tissue that is cut is not discarded with the Laser Bra technique, but is used to make an "internal bra" which can help the breast lift last longer. Also, I understand that the areolas are not cut and moved - they stay in place, unlike a regular breast lift surgery. These sound like great advantages to me. Shouldn't any woman looking for a breast lift/reduction have this technique done on her? Would love your thoughts. Thank you.
Answer: There are always newer techniques that are marketed to suggest an improvement of established techniques but the reality is that if you have drooping, you will most likey need an approach that lifts your nipple/areola as well; also, many techniques shape the breast ( I happen to use the spair which I have found consistent with good results over the last 15 or so years of using it).  It's always important to visit websites of board certified plastic surgeons (not necessarily "cosmetic" surgeons) to see their results and then have consultations. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day!
Question: Hi i am 22 years of age and ive been wanting to get breast implants for the longest but never made a move. I have many questions like what is the difference between saline and silicone? And how much would the whole procedure come out to be?
Answer: Hello Elida - although your question is very important, there is simply too much information that is so important when answering questions like these but it's even more important that you have a consultation with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery! I hoe this helps and have a wonderful day!
Question: hello, i am 32 A and i can't seem to grow any bigger. i am very self conscious and i am 19. i want to know how much it would cost for breast augmentation (natural)
Answer: You very well may be an excellent candidate for breast augmentation with your own body fat. This is an amazing opportunity to utilize what you have in one area and place it to your breasts. Its natural and once integrated, has the potential to last a lifetime without the concerns of having an implant placed.

Question: My 20 yr old daughter wants to have a breast reduction. She can't find clothes and swim suit tops that fit her right. She is a size 7/8 junior in clothes, but a size 34 G in bras. She keeps bringing up the subject but is afraid of surgery. What are the pros and cons of this surgery.
Answer: The surgery is usually one of the most gratifying procedures that women undergo! And with the newer procedures that reduce scars, the outcomes are improved as well. Please visit our website for further information or call our office at 866-646-6136 to discuss the matter further and schedule a consultation. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day!
Question: I had hair restoration done 10 years ago..I even had a scar reduction .to the 'donar' area scar.. is there a procedure that is specific to minimizing this scar..? i'm older now and would like to wear my hair short even shaved but the scar is still so visible it creates problems for me.
Answer: Thanks for your question. Scars can be unpredictable and depending on the area can also remain less than ideal for some time but 10 years should give you a better outcome. If you have already had a revision, another one may not improve things significantly and without photos, it's hard to tell or comment further. It would be worth seeing a plastic surgeon to evaluate further. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day.
Question: About How Much will a Buttocks Augmentation Cost for everything to be done and out the door?

Question: I want to know if I could have alternative procedures done to get rid of dull, sagging, wrinkled, dry, very creased 55 yr old facial skin that is really old looking with deep frown line between eyes, and around mouth. thank you
Answer: Thank you for your question. There are so many options available today to manage the aging face. Wrinkles can be addressed by using fillers, Botox, or skin resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels or laser. It would be helpful to schedule a consultation to assess and discuss the details of your particular situation. I hope this helps and have a wonderful day
