Q&A: After hair restoration, what can I do to help with a scar left in the donor area?

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.




Q&A: Who do you go to to have a mole that has changed removed and biopsied?

A skilled doctor with a gentle precise touch & some basic surgical skills can correctly biopsy or remove most moles just fine. When they are on the face or other highly visible areas, it is usually best to have surgery , even minor, performed by a surgeon trained in minimizing the scar and helping promote ideal healing. If the mole shows troublesome cells (the pathologist determines this) then additional skin may need to be removed.




Q&A: What should I do after injecting cooking oil into my buttocks and breasts?

The softening may indicate that is absorbing or that it is forming a liquefied area of dead fat. Hard to know. If you are not having ill effects- I would not do anything. It would be impossible to remove it and I would only attempt to do so if it was causing infection , pain or major distortion.
I have never had to treat anyone who injected cooking oil



Q&A: Being an open heart patient, would I be denied getting a face lift?

As long as your cardiologist and your internal medicine doctor clears you I do not see a reason why you should not have this procedure you are interested in.





Dear Sabela, I am not aware of any type of laser surgery that will correct a sagging chin. It is possible that a chin implant may improve the problem, but most commonly a surgical procedure to remove redundant shin and/or fat will be necessary. You will need to see a plastic surgeon in order to determine just what needs to be done. At that time you will learn the cost of the procedure. Dennis Thompson, M.D.

Q&A: If silicon gel implants feel more natural than saline implant, why are thet not offered as a first choice?

Yes.the silicone gel implants do feel more natural than saline but only slightly. In about 1993 the F.D.A. banned the use of the gel implant because of related health concerns. They are not permitted for use in those women considering breast augmentation for the first time at this time. However, they are allowed for those women needing reconstructive breast procedures such as post mastectomy and for those women already having gel implants that require replacemnt. Those are the rules/




Q&A: Are there breast augmentation procedures that will result in large, full breasts that stay up when you lay down?

Dear Keli, The natural thing for breasts to do is to fall to the side when lying down. The actresses that you see have implants. It is very easy to make them stand up when you are lying down, simply have a large breast augmentation with high profile implants.





Assuming that your breast milk would adequately feed an infant before breast augmentation, you should be able to breast feed if the incision to place the implant is made in the fold beneath the breast or in the armpit. There are other factors which might affect your ability to breast-feed. Therefore, you should have a thorough evaluation by a board certified plastic surgeon.



Q&A: What is the price range for various breast enlargement sizes?

Price for Breast Augmentation is not dependent on size of enlargement but is a constant cost for a given location. A general price range would be $6500.00.
