Do I have gynecomastia & what are the best treatments?
Do I have gynecomastia?
Apr 27, 2022
Thank you for your question and the photo. It appears that you have some chest asymmetry, and likely some excess tissue. An in-person exam would be needed to determine if you have more fatty development or true breast tissue excess. A surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery can give you a definitive answer. Treatment options depends on the anatomic problem. For some patients, liposuction alone is sufficient. For others, direct excision. For many, a combination of excision...
Does the Ideal implant or silicone implant weigh more?
Ideal implant feel and weight question
Apr 27, 2022
Thank you for your question. Silicone implants, generally speaking volume for volume will weigh more than a structured implant. As far as "feel to the touch" is concerned, my personal experience is that the Ideal Implant is somewhere in between the feel of a traditional saline and a silicone, but more toward the silicone feel. Not quite exactly equivalent, but close.
Will this lumpy scar eventually go away, or is this my final result? 8 months after tummy tuck
Final result 8 months after abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)?
Apr 27, 2022
Thanks for your question and photos. You specifically asked about lumpiness in your scar. It is difficult to see lumpy areas of the scar directly in the photos, but in general your surgeon probably used some dissolving stitches just below the skin surface at your scar site. While most of the stitches likely have dissolved, there may be some pockets of scar from the stitches that you still feel. Sometimes massage or other treatments can help the scar tissue itself. The slight contour...
Do I have gynecomastia as I appear to be developing female looking breasts?
Do I have gynecomastia as I appear to be developing female looking breasts?
Jun 15, 2021
Thank you for your question and pictures. As always, an in-person exam is best to make an exact determination of what is going on. However, from the pictures, it appears that you have more fatty tissue than dense glandular tissue. With that being said, there are still options for treatment to improve the contour of your chest. Depending upon your skin elasticity (again, best determined by in-person exam), you may be a candidate for liposuction only contouring. Look for a board certified...
I want to get liposuction and want to know what the difference is between SAFElipo and Vaser lipo?
SAFElipo vs. Vaser lipo
Sep 21, 2020
Vaser liposuction is a technique that uses ultrasound to break up fat cells and then the disrupted fat gets suctioned out during the procedure. In addition, the heat generated from the ultrasonic waves is supposed to help tighten the skin after the procedure.

In contrast, SAFEELipo breaks up the fat mechanically, sucks out the fat, and then essentially does internal fat grafting in the Fat Equalization phase to even out the results.

Both techniques work, and both techniques have strong...
