Dr. Roger T. Brill, MD, FACS's Expert Contributions
  • Can you have permanent eye color change?

    If it's the iris of the eye you are referring to, the answer is no. Contacts with color can be used. If it is the eyeliner tattoo you are referring to, yes. Sometimes the previous dye can be removed and we have that technology and can be followed with another color. READ MORE

  • How long does it take to recover from eyelid plastic surgery?

    The post surgical swelling is gone in 3 to 5 days. Bruises usually changed from a ”black and blue” to a more yellow color change at the end if a week and can easily be covered with make up. There is specific make up for covering bruises without having to put thick make over the skin. I have had many patients simply wear sunglasses even before the selling subsides and return to a regular routine including grocery shopping. READ MORE

  • Can a plastic surgeon fix a facial scar?

    This is considered constructive surgery as it is a deformity secondary to accident or illness. Three major factors involve scars, contour, color, and width. Contour indentation or protruding scars are the most noticeable, and second is the color. The width may not be very noticeable if the scar is flat with normal color. Contracture of scar can also give a facial deformity. There are tension lines in the skin and there are ways to revise the sacar by removal of the original scar and may change directions of some of the scar so that most of the scar is along the tension lines leaving very little scar and hopefully totally unnoticeable. The method may be Z- plasties, rotational flaps, transitional flaps or advancement flaps or just a simple revision using an traumatic method. An enlarged scar called a hypertrophic scar, or keloid scar can also be treated. READ MORE

  • What is the most common breast implant size?

    It depends on your height and size as it will be different for a five-foot person to a five-foot 10-inch woman weighing 50 pounds more. The implant should fit your chest dimension and you should communicate and many times by photos as to exactly what you want to look like. The surgeon is working for you and you are his boss. You need to chose the size and contour as well as the overall size and then it is up to the plastic surgeon to have the knowledge and skill to know how to perform the surgery and place the correct size implant to achieve what you desire. However, overall most implants range 300 to 400cc size. There are different sizes and shapes of implants and and saline-filled or highly cohesive gels (gummy’s). Pay little attention to the size if the implant and all attention what you want to look like and leave the implant size to the surgeon. If you get exactly what you wanted then the implant size was right for you as well as the technique and skill of the surgeon. READ MORE

  • What are the side effects of Botox?

    Side effects can be a headache if injected close to a cutaneous never but doesn't last long. If migrates blow brow there can be slight drooping of the upper eyelid. Usually, such a small amount migrated that it lasts only for several days. Some differences in symmetry can occur and many times corrected by additional botox where it was not as effective. The maximum effect of the botox is about four days but much is noticeable immediately after injection. The major complications such as wider effects causing paralysis is basically nonexistent if standard Botox its other major product is used and not mixed or concocted by the physician. Major problems as this were reported and Botox Cosmetic was very rapid in notifying the public that it was not their product and an overdose was given by improperly mixed. I have had great long term permanent results with several treatments over a year an a half at 3 to 4 months apart. This causes the muscles to be permanently longer and weaker as the repeated use for several treatments results is muscle wasting and atrophy. After that period patients come for maintenance if needed or not any longer. I was the first plastic surgeon in this area to us botox when it was first FDA approved for cosmetic use. At that time only plastic surgeons used it but now it is by almost any doctor nurse or nurse practitioner and unfortunately are not as knowledgeable about facial anatomy and I have seen many unhappy patients treated in different places. They now only trust me and will not go any place else. READ MORE

  • What are the side effects of Botox?

    Side effects are very rare and, if any, they subside with no long-term consequences. There was a major completion of botox with paralysis that occurred when a doctor mixed his own with none-medical botox and with the wrong concentration by error and was to save money. Botox cosmetic rapidly responded that it was not their product injected. The physician lost his license to practice. I have had only an occasional headache occur when injected close to cutaneous nerves and is very rare an is very short term. Also. migration of a small amount of botox can migrate blow the brow resulting in a paradise or weakness if the upper eyelid and usually if it happens is on one side. This is very rare and lasts for usually only a few days. This is also very rare. READ MORE

  • How can I make my lips bigger with surgery?

    The best method is with fat grafting as it results with a permanent result. There is some skill in getting a very good result. I have been in practice longer than anyone in private practice including University of Florida and. the Mayo Clinic. I unfortunately take care of many botched cases. If you are a artist and were to screech lips, there is specific continue features that are necessary to achieve the contour and shape that give a very attractive even if large. I have seen too much placed in wrong places such as lateral upper lip so that it looks like a sausage rather than a lip. The center needs to be much fuller with the mucosal show and not too much above the. There is a tapering if the protrusion and then the sides need to taper naturally resulting in an attractive lip. The same is necessary for the lower lip. Dr Sidney Coleman has been the greatest contributor an I use his technique which results in about 90 percent of graft survival making the results very predictable and allowing excellent artistry READ MORE

  • How long does eye lift surgery last?

    It is permanent as skin is removed and sometimes some adipose tissue is removed. Minimal adipose tissue should be removed only to return you to how you looked 10 or more years ago. With aging, adipose tissue decreases so too much removal can be harmful making you look even older. Many times through the eyelid incision, I also raise the lateral brow slightly to make you look better. It also eliminates many lines in the lateral eyelid area. We also recommend skin care which us self use but with prescription strength compounds which result in permanent anti aging not available in retail stores. This results in permanent improvement. You may stop using and the result remains as apposed to retail who wants consistent purchase for profit and does not rejuvenate the skin. We work for permanent improvement except for normal aging from that permanently improved point READ MORE

  • How long is recovery from a face lift?

    Your appearance will look much better one day later and many times with minimal swelling. This may increase the next day and rapidly subside. The bruising will subside in 5 to 7 days but may have a yellow discoloration that can be covered with make up. READ MORE

  • Can a nose job improve breathing?

    Yes. Many operations improve appearance but also treats any breathing obstruction problems with a septoplasty and correction of enlarged turbonates if that is causing a breathing problem. Breathing problems can also be treated without the rhinoplasty and not changing the shape of the nose READ MORE

  • What will happen if you don't replace breast implants?

    Plastic surgeons want you to have an improved appearance which is the original reason for your surgery. Removing your implants will give you a deformity out of the surgeons control. Therefore, when I remove implants, I encourage them to still retain a normal appearance by possibly a breast lift, fat grafting if needs more volume, or change to a different type and size and may change from under skin to under muscle. I specifically need to know why she wants them removed. Is it rupture, contract, or rare implant illness with older gel implants and not the gummy type, or textured implants with problems. I have removed implants on many patients who simply are too large at that time if their life and removal with a lift and even lipoplasty of lateral breast and arm pit are give a very satisfactory result. READ MORE

  • How long do butt injections last?

    Treating the buttocks usually involves increasing volume in the upper the central region giving a nice round appearance correcting a flat central appearance. Fat grafting can be performed in many patients. The cell mass is permanent. If one gains weight, this may also get larger. Make sure that whatever is done will achieve the result in improving your shape and contour which you desire. I have combined adipose tissue reduction in the lower, lateral, and above the buttocks as well as adding volume to the upper and central buttocks to give the result requested by the patient. This is a permanent change a will change over time with normal aging. READ MORE

  • How is eyelid surgery done?

    First, an evaluation is needed. At 32 years of age usually what patients notice is extra upper eyelid skin which may form a double fold. It may obscure upper eyelid show and make it interfere with your ability to apply makeup. There are now nonsurgical methods to considerably tighten the skin equal to a surgical result an I use Fibroblast which is new and returns the elastin tightening of the skin and may be 20-30% tighter. It gives results equal or even better than surgery as perinatal sin anti aging was achieved with doesn't happen with surgery. There is no change in color of the eyelid skin, performed with topical anesthetic, no sedation, no treatment for pain, no risk of dry eye, heals in three to four days, and looks great with no skin color change bruising and is permanent except for future aging. It is permanent anti aging and tightening of skin. Also it returns your eyelids to the same as when about 10 or 15 years younger and no scar. You can drive to the appointment yourself as if a dental appointment. It is much less expensive. If you have significant excess skin and lateral upper fullness and possibly a small amount of extra medial protuberance, then surgery would be the best treatment. This is more expensive. I have raised the lateral brow slightly as well through the eyelid incision. Conservation of orbital adipose tissue is important at this age. If she has asymmetry, or very low brows and bothers her and wants to have a different look, this can be done usually with upper eyelid incisions only but can also have a brow lift with additional small incisions added in the scalp which are behind the hairline and heal very well and unnoticeable. Remember that this patient is 32 and at this age ”less is more”. Anti aging of skin around eyes including lateral skin an lower eyelid skin should be included and can be very successful with self treatment as recommended by a plastic surgeon as prescription strength agents are necessary for permanent rejuvenation. READ MORE

  • Can a rhinoplasty make nostrils smaller?

    Yes, This is commonly done with some reduction of nasal projection but this is left to be done at the end of the procedure because it reduces some without the surgical treatment. Also, the main problem may be very wide alar portion of your nose and only needs the reduction of the nostril but also the overall proportion if your nose needs to look normal and natural READ MORE
