Case of the Month Cases

This patient presented with previous poorly done implant augmentation, breast sag, and capsular contracture. I removed implants, removed all capsule (total capsulectomy) and did a breast lift with non-implant auto-augmentation. Preserving all remaining tissues allowed me to create a nice attractive small B cup outcome. These are complex procedures that few surgeons can address.

This case shows ideal breast shape after silicone gel implant augmentation. Can’t see the incision approach? Exactly ow it is planned. Notice how the properly done augmentation can “auto” lift a slightly saggy small (A cup) breast. Outstanding result!

Combination SMAS Composite face lift, neck lift, platysmaplasty, cervicoplasty and fat grafting to multiple sites of the face including lid cheek junction, lips, jaw line, marionette folds, along with upper and lower lid blepharoplasty with lateral cheek lift and fat transposition. A terrific transformation and beautiful, youthful, natural result!

Even women with moderate fat can be candidates for liposuction. This is an excellent example of liposuction of abdomen and hips and fat grafting of buttock which together really refine her shape!!

This is just about as remarkable a transformation as possible from a well designed, planned and executed breast lift with implant augmentation. This amazing result can only be achieved with the combination of lift, reduction and augmentation. The reduction component which so many surgeons fail to appreciate, eliminate the saggiest tissue, clearing the way for the remaining breast to be wrapped around the properly sized and fitted implant. 

With this approach, results stand the test of time, age, and gravity must better! In fact, I have taught a course at a national meeting so other Plastic Surgeons would better understand this technique. Here, she went from a very saggy full C to a beautifully youthful small D. Amazing!

This case really highlights the important components of my abdominoplasties:

Contouring of abdominal wall during diastasis and hernia repairs to create a fit and beautiful form with improved posture, maximum skin removal to eliminate the most poor quality skin while keeping the scar very low. I then create a nice belly button while incorporating flankplasty with abdominoplasty to remove unwanted lateral skin and oblique bulge. A beautiful result!

This male presented with the typical aging features which prompt people to seek this procedure. I had previously (many earlier earlier) performed blepharoplasty (upper and lower). His face and neck aged around his youthful eyes with laxity, sag, and hollowness (loss of volume). I combined fat grafting (along jaw line, cheeks, lid cheek junction, brow ridge, and marionette folds) with SMAS composite face and neck lift.

In this procedure, I lift the internal saggy cheek, jowls, and neck fibrofatty musculature together (as a COMPOSITE- hence the name!) and redirect these vectors slightly differently from the skin portion of the lift. This allows me to give patients remarkably youthful results which are natural and not pulled. This is a great representation of how I can take 15 years of more off the face!

An amazing abdominal transformation is shown when loose skin and a weak abdominal wall are eliminated in favor of a tight shapely form.

This patient presented with a large ventral hernia, and skin laxity. After an abdominoplasty, she is strong, fit, and feeling great!

Some women prefer the aesthetics of a nipple on the upper part of the breast, this is not always achievable. Here, uneven small A cup breasts are successfully turned into shapely C cup breasts.
