A: During your initial consultation, you will discuss your desired results with Dr. Hochstein so he can fully understand your expectations. You will be provided with before and after photos so that you can see some of the results Dr. Hochstein has achieved with his other patients. He will examine your breasts and evaluate other factors that may affect the outcome of your surgery. This will help determine the appropriate breast size and incision location.
For women who experience breast sagging, I would recommend a breast lift; not breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction can provide a more modest breast size by removing tissue and skin from the breasts; however, a breast lift is needed to achieve a perkier, higher-positioned breast contour. It’s very common for patients to combine their breast reduction surgery with a breast lift to achieve more comprehensive breast enhancement results.
If you have a job that doesn’t require much physical movement (a desk job, for example), you may be able to go back to work after about two weeks. If you have a more physical job, you may need more time off from work, or may have to request lighter duty until you’re able to return to your pre-surgery tasks. Your doctor can provide you with a letter supporting this request.

My breast have always been too large for my tastes, and often cause me back issues, and I’m considering getting a reduction. Your article had some great information about different breast surgeries, and how they work, and I liked how you detailed the possible reasons a person should get breast reduction surgery. I’ve always had posture issues, always have back, should, and neck pain, and can only wear certain clothes due to my bust size, so according to your post, breast reduction surgery may be a good idea for me.


If you're considering plastic surgery, talk it over with your parents. If you're serious and your parents agree, the next step is meeting with a plastic surgeon to help you learn what to expect before, during, and after the procedure — as well as any possible complications or downsides to the surgery. Depending on the procedure, you may feel some pain as you recover, and temporary swelling or bruising can make you look less like yourself for a while.

Once you’ve committed to the procedure and decided on a surgeon, you’ll need to schedule a pre-op appointment.  Your surgeon will also likely review your procedure again and answer any questions you might have.  Some physicians ask you to bring an example of clothes you typically wear or a swimsuit to discuss the placement of your scars so you can finally have that bikini body you’ve dreamed of! I brought a swimsuit to my surgery day so he could see exactly where I would prefer the scar lines to fall. 
Children often face medical issues very different from the experiences of an adult patient. Many birth defects or syndromes present at birth are best treated in childhood, and pediatric plastic surgeons specialize in treating these conditions in children. Conditions commonly treated by pediatric plastic surgeons include craniofacial anomalies, Syndactyly[21] (webbing of the fingers and toes), Polydactyly (excess fingers and toes at birth), cleft lip and palate, and congenital hand deformities.
The ‘gummy bear’ implant comes in both round and teardrop shapes. They have a firmer gel, which may give a better shape and may last longer. The round gummy bear implant is often a good choice for women with looser tissues and who want a more durable implant that remains soft. The teardrop shaped gummy bear implant may be a good choice for women whose tissues are relatively tight and desire a very proportionate and natural looking enhancement with less fullness of the upper portion of the breast and more projection and fullness of the lower portion of the breast.
In January 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration released a statement that women with breast implants "may have a very small but increased risk of developing" anaplastic large cell lymphoma, a rare cancer that can develop around breast implants.  The Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons is closely following developments around this issue.
The same principles that govern reconstructive surgery are applied to aesthetic surgery: replace like with like, respect anatomic boundaries, minimize tissue trauma, and preserve vascular integrity. Aesthetic surgery is also concerned with scars, especially their length and visibility, and modifications to classic procedures such as face-lifts are made to minimize and hide scars. While age-related changes can weaken the support structures of skin and soft tissue, the advent of bariatric surgery in obese patients can create analogous changes in the tissues of the arms, chest, abdomen, and thighs. Corresponding lifts of these parts of the body can be performed.
Because you will be under general anesthesia during surgery, you won’t feel anything during the tummy tuck. Be aware, though, that it is a rather invasive procedure, so you will be uncomfortable for about one or two weeks following surgery. You’ll receive a prescription for pain medication to help manage any discomfort. Most patients find the surgery is more tolerable than they anticipated.

During a tummy tuck (or a male tummy tuck), a surgeon removes extra skin and fat, from the belly button—or higher—down to your bikini zone. Usually, 30-50% of your stomach skin gets removed, and your surgeon pulls the remaining skin and muscles tight, making your stomach flat while repositioning your belly button (or, on rare occasions, creating a new one).
However, if a patient schedules a consultation with me and finds that they cannot afford my services, I have recruited a brilliant young surgeon who has my stamp of approval, and is excellent in his own right. If it is a case in which experience makes a significant difference, I will recommend that the client consider undergoing surgery performed by me. However, we stand by the quality of this office, and if my protege is capable of meeting the patient's needs, we can discuss this option further.
For example, liposuction may also be necessary to make sure the breasts are contoured and shaped to suit your body type. The most common area would be the breast tail (the uppermost region of the breast, beside the underarms). Many women have an accumulation of fat cells in this area, no matter their weight. In most cases this is not included in a breast lift cost and will incur an additional fee. Liposuction costs start from $3,000 plus tax, per area.
Although there is rarely a medical reason for a breast lift, the surgery can have a great impact on a your mental and emotional health.  If you are considering a breast lift, it is important to remember that you are making an investment in yourself and your future. A breast lift can improve the overall appearance of your breasts and increase your self-confidence. Your clothes may not only fit better, but more clothing options may be available to you than ever before.

Body type is a major factor you need to consider before going for breast augmentation. The wrong size of breasts for a particular body type can create many complications like neck and back pain. If your body is small in size and your bone structure is thin, don’t go for huge sized implants. Opt for the size that will make your body look proportional. Similarly if you have a heavy body, you might have to go for larger breast implants.
Breast reduction involves reducing the size of the breast. A breast lift involves lifting the nipple-areolar complex and reducing the excess skin of the breast. Breast reductions can involve just liposuction in patients who have more fatty tissue than glandular breast tissue. Liposuction alone indeed does reduce the volume of the breasts. However, sagging of the breast can result and liposuction alone is therefore performed usually in highly selected patients.

Also referred to as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that flattens and reshapes your midsection. Whether you’ve lost muscle tone and gained excess fat and skin due to childbirth, or after losing a large amount of weight, a tummy tuck can give you back the flat, trim belly you once had, and help you feel confident about yourself again.

Dr. Cohen specializes in breast lifts, augmentations, revisions and reductions as well as breast cancer reconstructions. A long time dream of Dr. Cohen’s was to travel to developing countries and provide expert surgical care to those who have no other possible access to medical care. This became a reality in 2007 when she became a founding member and Vice President of ISMS Operation Kids.

They are essentially very similar procedures. The difference is in the amount of breast tissue removed. In a breast lift procedure, the nipple areolar complex is lift to a better position on the breast, and some breast tissue is removed and the breast envelope tightened. In a breast reduction, the nipple areolar complex is also lifted, but much more breast tissue is removed. 
All excess skin, tissue and fat are removed. If the breasts are extremely large and pendulous, the nipple is repositioned for the best cosmetic appearance. The incisions are placed together to reshape the new, smaller breast. Sutures are placed in layers, deep within the tissue, in order to support the newly shaped breasts. Finally, bandages will be placed over the incisions. The procedure will take 41-2 hours, depending on the amount of surgery required.

Once I arrived, the doctor talked to me about what I wanted to have done and then did an examination of my tummy area. We talked about my expected results and looked at before and after pictures of other patients that had tummy tucks. My doctor went through several body types and pointed out similarities and results that would likely be close to what I would experience. The difference was ASTOUNDING.

Before deciding upon a surgeon and a scope of treatment, you have to contemplate what a quality operation is worth to you personally. For the majority of patients I see, their desired procedure will create a budget crunch. The money isn't sitting under a pillow waiting to be used. Paying upfront for treatment that will bring you true satisfaction might mean that you have to drive a less flashy car for a couple of years, or wait to upgrade from an apartment to a house for a little while longer.
