  • Health Complaints And Surgical Treatment of Symptomatically Large Breasts

    One solution for women whose overly large breasts cause pain, discomfort, or emotional stress is a procedure known as breast reduction surgery. A breast reduction (or reduction mammoplasty) procedure removes excess skin, glandular tissue, and fat to reduce the size and weight of the breast. The...

  • Breast Augmentation Basics

  • Can I speed up my facelift recovery?

  • What is the best procedure to tighten the neck?

  • How long after rhinoplasty can I exercise?

    I typically allow patients to resume mild exercise at 2 weeks and full exercise at 4 weeks (dpsny.co/rhino). READ MORE

  • Does neck plastic surgery leave a scar?

    Typically, all surgery leaves a scar. The key question is, where is the scar located and how does it look when it heals. A typical neck lift scar is located back around th ear and so it hides well (dpsny.co/necklift). There are other neck surgeries, however, that place the scar in other locations. READ MORE

  • Do you have to take antibiotics after plastic surgery?

    Antibiotics are often prescribed for a short time during the recovery after plastic surgery. These help to prevent the stressed tissue from becoming infection by the bacteria that lives on the skin or within the nose (dpsny.co/rhino). READ MORE

  • Which is better breast implants or fat transfer?

    Fat transfer (dpsny.co/fataug) and breast implants (dpsny.co/augment) both can work well for breast augmentation depending on what a patient starts with and what their goals are. Most patients chose implants because of the predictability of the result and the volume of augmentation that can be achieved with implants. READ MORE

  • At what age should you get a facelift?

  • What is a mommy makeover?

    The combination of a breast procedure with an abdominoplasty is classically coined a “Mommy Makeover” because the goal is to reverse the changes brought about from bearing children and breast-feeding. The ideal combination, however, is tailored to the needs of each patient and are performed to remove excess skin and fat from the body to produce a more pleasing shape. These procedures can include arm lifts, thigh lifts, butt lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast lifts and are often done in combinations. See the following link for more info on Mommy Makeover Surgery: http://tiny.cc/mommy A detailed examination will help delineate the best surgical option and provide you a custom quote for your situation.

  • Does a rhinoplasty also affect the bone?

    A surgical rhinoplasty is a powerful procedure that adds, removes, or repositions tissue in the nose for better aesthetics - often completely reshaping the nose. This often involves removing dorsal humps, lifting drooping tips, and narrowing the nasal bones. Each nose is different, however, and so there will be slight variations in the technique. In addition, the thickness of the nose skin can affect the overall result. See the following link for more information: http://tiny.cc/rhinoplasty A detailed examination will help delineate the best surgical option and provide you a custom quote for your situation. Best, Dr. David M. Tauber, MD READ MORE

  • Are tummy tucks painful to get?

    A typical full abdominoplasty is a powerful procedure that can flatten and remove excess skin and fat from both above and below the belly button and tighten the abdominal muscles. As with any surgery, the pain is usually worse in the 2-3 days immediately after surgery and tends to improve after that. Management of pain is usually through a combination of narcotic and non-narcotic pain medications taken by mouth, oral medications that lessen muscle spasm, and long-acting local anesthetics injected during surgery or infused from a small pump. The recovery for an abdominoplasty is typically 2-3 weeks. The ability to return to work and everyday activities is variable and depends on many factors including the type of work, the pain tolerance of the patient, and the extent of the procedures. See the following link for more information: http://tiny.cc/tummytuck A detailed examination will help delineate the best surgical option and provide you a custom quote for your situation. Best, Dr. David M. Tauber, MD READ MORE

  • Can I get rid of stretch marks through plastic surgery?

    A typical full abdominoplasty is often performed after bearing children or after moderate weight loss. It can be a powerful procedure that can remove excess skin including stretch marks below the belly button. Fat from both above and below the belly button is also removed and the abdominal muscles are tightened. Often, flank liposuction is added to an abdominoplasty for better contouring. The improvement in contour depends on many factors. These factors include the extent of skin tightening and plication performed, the amount of pre-operative muscle laxity, the overall attenuation (thinness) of the abdominal wall, the amount of intra-abdominal fat (fat inside the belly), and the amount of subcutaneous fat (fat in the skin). The ideal abdominoplasty patient is at or near their ideal weight, is stable at that weight for a year, is physically and nutritionally healthy, and is looking for help in removing excess, hanging skin.
