Can I Have Face Lift And A Breast Augmentation Within 2 Weeks Of Each Other
Yes, but: Be sure to discuss the pros and cons of this, in detail, with your surgeon. Both procedures will change your body forever and rushing now, for convenience, seems foolhardy. Make certain that the reasons you are having the procedures are as long-lasting as the consequences of the procedures! ...Read moreSee 11 more doctor answers
Would a deep plane face lift leave me with less sensation in my face? I had a breast lift years ago, so i know that cosmetic surgery can cause some loss of feeling in the treatment area. I'd like to reduce the sagging in my cheeks and around my mouth with
Had breast augmentation and lift 4 weeks ago. Both my breasts are red and sore all over the breast even not on the scarred part. I've put dermastine cream all over them. Is something wrong?
See you surgeon!: Pain and redness following surgery can indicate a number of things including infection. If treated early, you may be able to avoid removal of the implant. However, if left untreated it can progress to a worsening infection and the potential need for IV antibiotics and temporary implant removal. You definitely need to consult with your surgeon about this. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers
Is breast implant removal needed during a breast lift? I had breast augmentation done 20 years ago, and i'm not sure if i need to have them removed. Now my breasts are sagging and i think i need a lift. If I have a breast lift, is breast implant removal a
Not needed: + advise: It is not absolutely necessary but i would advise that you truly consider removal, removal with replacement (larger or smaller or transition from saline to silicone or vice versa) or removal and fat transfer. There are many options for this and they should be discussed with a board certified plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

Get a consultation: I only perform facial plastic surgery, but improvement from 50 to 30 is probably an unrealistic expectation. You need a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. He or she should be able to explain what you can expect after rejuvenation surgery. If you do not feel you both are on the same page with your expectations, u should not have surgery. ...Read moreSee 15 more doctor answers
Yes, but...: There is increasing scientific literature showing how fat can be used for breast augmentation, but there are some valid concerns about the doing so. Some questions that need to be better studied include whether fat necrosis/calcifications make detecting cancer on a mammogram harder and what the role of stem cells have on risks of cancer development. Larger, longer term studies will be needed. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Be Safe: It would be best to be geographically close to your plastic surgeon for a minimum of two weeks following breast augmentation. If a problem should arise, you would want to be able to obtain treatment quickly from the surgeon who treated you as opposed to someone in a different state who doesn't know exactly what was done and how. Be conservative, especially with this investment in your health. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
No real difference: We have found in our office no real difference between incisions. Patients will usually have incisional pain, and also discomfort from muscle stretch. This is usually well tolerated. Some patients may benefit from a pain pump placed in surgery. It instills numbing medicine over a few days and patients have less pain. http://www.jjrothmd.com/procedures/breast-augmentation. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
High satisfaction!: Breast augmentation clients are among the happiest patients we work with in plastic surgery. When this procedure is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon on a patient with realistic expectations, the results are almost always very positive. Problems arise when there are unrealistic expectations, the patient is doing the surgery for the wrong reason, or the physician is simply not qualified. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Oh sure...: Usually the implant is placed beneath the muscle of the chest wall. But, even when the implant is placed over the muscle, there's very little chance of a sensory distortion about the nipple/areola complex. Speak to a board certified plastic surgeon for further details and risks. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Fat Transfer: "stem cell" breast augmentation is really no more than fat transfer to the breast. There can be stem cells that are harvested along with the fat, but the majority is still fat. Some of this fat goes away after the injection, but that also means that some survives permanently. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
NO: Breast augmentation will not prevent you from becoming pregnant or giving birth. The ability to breast feed is not always an easy task, even in the unoperated woman. Breast augmentation will not permanently interrupt milk ducts, however there is a 3 to 5% chance of decreased nipple sensation after augmentation. This could theoretically make breast feeding more difficult. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Yes, temporarily: Often, nipple sensitivity is increased initially. This can be way too much, at first. Within few weeks, this subsides toward normal. Unfortunately, breast augmentation can also cause permanent loss of nipple sensation on one or both sides, due to injury to the nerves in the breast. This is very rare, but, if it happens to you, it is of little conciliation that it happens very infrequently! ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Both are safe: Both operations are extremely safe, but breast reduction takes longer in the operating room and involves more incisions and scars. Augmentation involves use of implants, which are also safe but have their own particular issues. Obviously, one woman cannot need both operations, so individual medical details are much more relevant, and both operations (in different patients) are quite low-risk! ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
A few days: Short answer: whenever it is comfortable. The incisions will seal in 48 hours so you can get them wet after that. I usually advise my patients not to wear underwire bras for 2-3 weeks because they are not comfortable, but other than that, you can wear a swimsuit whenever it is comfortable after augmentation. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
