Gynecomastia Surgery Revision: There is Hope

Monday, June 30th, 2014

With any surgery, there is always a risk of needing revision surgery.  As an expert in gynecomastia surgery, I see patients in consultation who have had their surgery elsewhere and are not happy with their results. Typically, patients needing revision fall into two categories: over-resection and under-resection. Both types of patients have different challenges but by far the more ...

Brave New World

Friday, July 19th, 2013

The last 10 years has seen an explosion in plastic surgery and aesthetic procedures. There has been a greater acceptance of plastic surgery correlating to increased exposure in the media. While this certainly has had positive effects on patients, there are certain ramifications to this burst of popularity. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I have spent thousands of hours ...

Buyer Beware

Friday, February 8th, 2013

What is the difference between a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon? A plastic surgeon has trained specifically in the field of plastic surgery for a minimum of two years. This is in addition to three to five years of general surgery training. A cosmetic surgeon is not necessarily a plastic surgeon. Some dermatologists, gynecologists, or internists refer to ...

Implant Malposition

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Breast implants need to be centered behind the breast mound in order to achieve the best results. However, in some cases implant malposition occurs. Sometimes this is a result of technical error, sometimes due to tissue characteristics, sometimes implant characteristics (implants that are too large), and sometimes a combination of all of the above. There are different types of implant ...

To Lift or Not to Lift

Friday, August 31st, 2012

As a plastic surgeon specializing in breast surgery one of the hardest conversations to have is with a patient who comes in for breast augmentation, but who also needs a breast lift, or mastopexy. The main reason this conversation is difficult for the patient is because typically mastopexies involve additional incisions, which the patient may not be initially prepared ...

Abdominoplasty or Full or Mini Tummy Tuck

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Full or Mini Tummy Tuck One of the most common questions I get from patients who are seeing me for a tummy tuck is, “Am I a candidate for a mini tummy tuck?” Basically the difference between the two surgeries has to do with the incision, the belly button, and the amount of dissection. In a traditional tummy tuck, ...

Liposuction versus Tummy-Tuck

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Liposuction versus Tummy-Tuck One of the more common things I see in my office is a patient who comes in for a consultation for liposuction of their belly, but really needs a tummy-tuck (the opposite of this also happens, but not as often). So how do you know if you are a candidate for liposuction or tummy tuck? These operations ...
