Ask A Doctor
Had undereye surgery, stitches on the outside of the lower lid. Severe bags have formed. Looks terrible! What should I do?

Is nipple reduction a safe procedure? If so, what would be a reasonable (not overpriced, but still reasonable for the work being done) price to pay for it?

I'm confused about gynocomastia surgery and the return of tissue after surgery. If the glands are removed and not due to excess fat why could it possibly return? I've read many articles stating things like: gyno can return if the underlying cause isn't fixed, such as steroids, opiates, hormones. This statement confuses me because in my thinking if the glands have been removed how is it possible for the glands to start growing again? Is this statement true when referring to gland removal and can anyone explain to me how glands work and are produced? If the gland is removed can a new one grow in it's place or is it gone forever, never to return? Thank you very much for anyone taking the time to answer me!!

After having a Tummy Tuck and thigh liposuction with Dr. Breitbart, I decided to also have a mini-face lift and some contouring done on my arms. As before, the surgery and recovery process was fully explained to me, and I had full confidence in Dr. Breitbart and his surgical team.
For me, having this surgical work was as much for my inner self, as for the outer image. Only 12 days after surgery, I feel great and I look great!! Once again, I could not be any more pleased!
