  • How do you know if a breast implant is leaking?

    A mammogram and/or MRI is the best way to be certain. READ MORE

  • How much weight can you lose with liposuction?

    Liposuction is a tool for contouring and sculpting the body, not a tool for weight loss or replacement for diet and exercise. When at your ideal weight, it can remove stubborn deposits of fat that diet and exercise have been unable to remove. It is best to wait until you are at or close to your preferred weight and have a BMI in the healthy range for your height. As surgeons, we usually recommend a BMI of under 30 for best results, though the closer you are to your ideal weight, the better your liposuction results will be. It is recommended that after weight loss, maintain/stabilize your weight for up to six months before having your surgery. Contact a Board Certified plastic surgeon for an in-person consultation to discuss the best options for you.

  • Does a septoplasty change your nose appearance?

  • How do you get rid of surgery scars?

    You can reduce the appearance of scarring with microneedling. READ MORE

  • Is a chin implant painful?

    No, in fact it's done under local anesthetic. Very short procedure in office and minimal healing time as the incision is very small. READ MORE

  • Can plastic surgery remove burn scars?

    Microneedling, lasers and derabrasion are all procedures that can improve scaring. A consultation is the best way to determine which is a fit for you. READ MORE

  • What is the recovery for otolarynology plastic surgery?

  • Do you have a scar after liposuction?

    Almost no scarring as the incision is very small. READ MORE

  • Is eyelid surgery risky?

    There is always a risk when doing procedures that are elective. Surgery is not an exact science and there is always a chance for complications even if the procedure is minimally invasive, such as blepharoplasty. READ MORE

  • How long is the recovery for a rhinoplasty?

    It's about 2 to 4 weeks of rest but the nose does not fully heal for about 6 months. READ MORE

  • What to expect after a face lift?

    After a face lift you can expect two weeks of absolute downtime. The first three days will be more so than the rest of the duration of your healing time. You will experience swelling for up to 6 months and the outcome and your aesthetic results around that time as well. Report anything you feel isn't normal immediately to your surgeon as it could prolong your recovery if not mentioned. READ MORE

  • What is the best age for face lift?

    Key contributors to determining the best time for a facelift are genetics and lifestyle (i.e., sun exposure, smoking, etc.), along with personal tolerance for the aging process. The most common age range for facelifts for both women and men is during their 40s to 60s, with the greatest frequency occurring during the 50s. Many individuals choose a “liquid facelift” of non-surgical injectables (toxes and fillers) to hold off the surgical facelift for as long as possible. Note that delaying a facelift until the later ages can result in a more noticeable "something done" appearance whereas having a facelift while in ones 40s provides a more “refreshed” look to the face. The timing of a surgical facelift for any individual is best determined in consultation with a Board Certified plastic surgeon. READ MORE

  • Is it a must to undergo a plastic surgery after a Mohs surgery?

    While there is no way to remove scars, sometimes scars can be improved. There are various treatment options. An in-person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is needed to determine the best options for you. Generally, for the best results in scar revision, plastic surgery would be conducted immediately after the Mohs surgery. READ MORE
