Fear of Scars in Breast lift and Reduction

One of the most common questions I get is: “What will the scars look like?” The word scar, in general, has a bad connotation and creates fear in most people. I prefer the term “incision lines” as compared to “scars.” There are few places where patients are more fearful about scars than their breasts. Breast reductions and breast lifts typically […]

Breast Lift Scars

During breast lift surgery, incisions will typically be made circumferentially around the areola, vertically in the lower aspect of the breast, and horizontally along the inframammary fold of the breast. Like all surgical procedures requiring incisions, the formation of scars after breast lift surgery is inevitable.

My Unique Technique for Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery has traditionally (and still commonly today) been performed using an inferior pedicle wise approach. With this technique, most of the tissue removed comes from the top of the breast while tissue on the bottom of the breast is saved to support circulation to the nipple.

Recovery from Male Breast Reduction Surgery

One of the many advantages of this innovative technique is the minimal downtime that typically ensues (or doesn’t, if you will).

My Less-Invasive Approach to Male Breast Reduction

On average, I perform male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia about five times a month, as it is a very popular procedure at my practice. The technique I utilize is best defined as chest wall sculpting with a “pull-through” or “mini-strip” excision of the “fibrous” gynecomastia tissue. Essentially, this approach is a very detailed and focused liposuction of the chest […]

Both teens and adults are bothered by this condition, especially men in their forties who have begun to develop excessive breast tissue or have been struggling with the condition since they were in high school.

Recovery from a Facelift Combined with a Neck Lift

Facelift and neck lift procedures are actually interrelated, so much so that performing one without the other can potentially lead to unsatisfactory results. For this reason, I typically perform a short scar facelift combined with an open neck lift and platysmaplasty, all of which have proven to produce fantastic results and high levels of satisfaction among my patients. Every time […]
