A Different Kind of Office Visit

Today I saw a 60 yr old patient on which I had done a breast reconstruction for a follow up office visit. Our goal with the surgery was trying to improve some piecemeal work from a previous surgeon. On this visit though, she wanted to tell me about her abusive parents, her cold husband, and her […]

Cancelled Plastic Surgery

Cancelled plastic surgery is something that we all try to avoid. When we have to cancel plastic surgery for patients, or when they cancel, it is always a disappointment for both sides. I really gear up for the surgeries that I have each day. I prepare and consciously and unconsciously think about them, just like an […]

Rescheduling aesthetic surgery

Rescheduling aesthetic surgery is something that we would all like to avoid. I have had to institute a number of actions to protect the interest of the patient and the plastic surgeon’s. First, we like to make it hard to schedule surgery flippantly and hard to cancel/reschedule aesthetic surgery. This attitude reflects my desire to […]

Tuberous Breasts

It’s kind of sad when you have breasts that just don’t compliment your body. It’s even sadder when your breasts do not have an optimal shape, and in fact are actually tuberous breasts. Tuberous breasts refers to a breast shape that is developmentally abnormal, but not infrequent. The breast tissue is not present all over the […]

Plastic surgery and Anesthesia

The kind of anesthesia used during a plastic surgery procedure, the skill of the anesthesiologist and nurse anesthetist, and how smoothly the patient moves through the anesthesia technique can either make or break a good plastic surgery operation and its final result. When I had a rhinoplasty in 1985, one year before I got pregnant […]

Life Counseling the Plastic Surgery Patient

My father was a family doctor, but he was so much more than just a doctor to his patients. He also was a life counselor for their life problems, which often led them to seek out his medical opinion. I believe he relished this role, and I am beginning to see what he felt.  When my mother […]

Causes of Unnatural Plastic Surgery Results

Why do most people shy away from plastic surgery? For some people, they are afraid of pain or  they can’t take time off work. Most commonly I hear that they are afraid of an unnatural-looking plastic surgery result. Most of the time, this results from picking the wrong surgeon. Achieve natural looking results with Dr. […]

Treating Aging Lines

Facial aging lines and wrinkles can develop for lots of reasons, from normal aging to sun damage, to facial muscles continuously moving and tugging on our skin. Here’s a simple principle to remember: most horizontal lines on the face are the result of repetitive motion, such as frowning, laughing or even smoking. Most vertical lines […]

Regular Mammograms Will Detect Early Breast Cancer

By getting regular mammograms, you will have a clear picture that can be used to assess changes in your breast anatomy. The 3D mammogram is now the gold standard for examining your breast radiographically and works well with dense breasts. I highly recommend that everyone goes to a location that has this new 3D mammogram […]
