Breast Lift Scars: The Incision Decision

Designing Breast Lift Scars “Doctor, can I have the Lollipop incision, or are you going to give me those anchor breast lift scars?”.  I get questions about breast lift scars a few times each week.   It’s the kind of decision that we as plastic surgeons are constantly faced with.  No woman wants to have scars on her breasts and we don’t want to make them any more than patients want to have them.  However, this is strictly speaking a “Tailoring” issue.  If there is too much skin we can’t make a nice, cosmetically pleasing, “tear drop” shaped breast. It’s really not a … Continue reading  

Kybella vs. Chin Liposuction: Running Neck and Neck

Is Kybella Better Than Chin Liposuction? Kybella is the new FDA approved product for injection that melts the fat in your neck to remove the dreaded double chin.  Studies performed by the company were very promising and we are seeing some nice improvements in our patients as well.  The question that arises however, is whether or not Kybella will replace chin liposuction as the mainstay of treatment to create an elegant look in patients who are not ready for a neck lift.

Jane and the Story of the Triplet New York Tummy Tuck

Jane had triplets and originally approached to me to consider performing a Tummy Tuck (aka “abdominoplasty”) at the time of her cesarean section.

In my opinion, it is a mistake to perform abdominoplasty at the time of C-section because none of the anatomic landmarks are in their proper place and the patient is bound end up with a suboptimal result (incidentally, I … Continue reading  

How To Fix Diastasis Recti – Tighten Your Tummy After Pregnancy

As both a Plastic Surgeon AND (in a previous life) a Personal Trainer with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, I have learned quite a bit about the muscles that make up the abdominal wall. Many patients come to me and are upset that they can’t get their tummy flat again after child birth. Some of their friends look great after they had kids and they don’t understand why they can’t get their physique back to the shape they are used to from their youth.  Some of them develop feelings of guilt or incompetence which are completely unfair.
