  • Will a tummy tuck take care of my loose skin & fat after having children?
    • Yes, a tummy tuck can take care of loose skin and fat after your children! However, you may also benefit from liposuction in your flank area. We will determine that during your initial examination. 

  • Is there a procedure that can improve the appearance of stretch marks on my stomach?
    • Of course we have a procedure for you to improve the appearance of stretch marks. A tummy tuck will remove most of the stretch marks. We say most because the stretch marks above the belly button will remain, though they will at least they be pulled tight and look markedly different. You should have an overall great result given your current figure.

  • What is the best surgical method for gynecomastia?
    • Since we customize our surgeries based on the individual, there isn’t one best surgical method for gynecomastia that works for everyone.There are different severities of gynecomastia. Ultrasonic liposuction alone can improve most of the mild cases. A combination of Ultrasonic Liposuction and direct excision with an incision half way around the areola will help with the moderate to severe cases. The most severe cases may require complete excision with a free nipple graft. You need to be evaluated first by a plastic surgeon to determine which is right for you.

  • What can I do for saggy breasts, especially if I have had children?
    • After children it is very common for women to have sagging breasts (ptosis). Often, an implant and breast lift combination is required. However, the only way to know for sure is by examination. There are plenty of times when an implant alone or a breast lift alone will suffice.

  • What should I bring if I’m a new patient?
    • Bring a list of any medications you are currently taking, including the dosages. You will also need to bring a form of identification and your insurance card, if applicable. We ask patients to arrive 10-15 minutes before their appointments to complete the initial paperwork.

  • Are there non-invasive ways to reshape my body?
    • Yes, there are definitely non-invasive ways to reshape your body. Procedures like Emsculpt can help contour your muscles and tone your figure without surgery or downtime. Keep in mind, these results will not be as drastic as surgery.

  • Should I get Botox or dermal filler?
    • Whether you should get Botox or dermal filler depends on your concerns. If you are worried about facial expressions causing wrinkles, then we recommend Botox. However, if you have lines and wrinkles even when you aren’t moving your face, then dermal fillers may be your solution. Many patients opt for both injectables to get more well rounded results. 

  • Are dermal fillers painful?
    • Anytime you are injected with a needle, you will likely feel a bit of sensation. However, dermal filler is actually more tolerable than you may imagine. Prior to your treatment, we will apply numbing cream that will help to decrease any possible pain. Further, some dermal fillers actually contain a numbing agent, lidocaine to help minimize any pain.
