In 1977, Fisher and Fischer reviewed 245 cases with the planotome instrument for treating cellulite in the lateral trochanteric (hip-thigh) areas. There was a 4.9 per cent incidence of seromas, despite incision-wound suction catheters and compression dressings; 2.0 per cent of the cases presented pseudo-cyst formation that required removal of the capsule (cyst) through a wider incision (+ 5.0 mm) and the use of the panotome.
Dr. Cohen and Dr. Winters have been conducting breast lifts for the past 15 years in Bergen County and have found certain things can enhance the experience for everyone involved. Following surgery, we’ve found that it is important to break the recovery process into 4 main areas: pain, scars, bras and exercise. Each section details what you need to know in relation to recovery and things you can do to prepare.
The most commonly asked combined procedure is that of the tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) and Brazilian butt lift, which is particularly favored by women that have just become mothers and want to get into a sexier version of themselves after giving birth. On average, a tummy tuck ranges from $7,500 to $9,500 and you may negotiate a discount with your plastic surgeon if you decide to have both procedures performed at the same time.
Like you, I do have patients who come to me concerned about scarring before their surgery. Afterward, however, few patients ever mention it to me, because the overall surgical result is so transformative. There is a surgical technique called the periareolar breast lift, which only involves an incision around the nipple / areolar complex, and the incision hides well along the border of the more darkly pigmented areola. However, you would be better suited for the vertical breast lift, and it is important not to choose the wrong technique in pursuit of fewer scars. The technique used determines how much lift can be achieved. In general, there is a significant difference in the aesthetic outcome of a mediocre versus a high quality breast lift, and by choosing a suboptimal surgical technique, you may compromise your ultimate aesthetic result in terms of breast shape or perkiness.
It’s important to understand exactly what your doctor’s quote includes. Does the number only include your surgeon’s fee? Or will it cover anesthesia, hospital fees, pre- or post-op appointments, and medications you’ll need throughout your recovery? If your doctor’s estimate doesn’t consider all those costs, be sure to factor them into your budget. Also be sure to ask how your surgeon handles revisions, in case you aren’t happy with your initial results.
Thank you for your question, which is one frequently heard in consultations about breast lift surgery. The vertical scar is necessary as the lower part of the breast needs to be tightened from side to side. This can only be done by tightening not only the breast tissue of the lower part of the breast, but also tightening the skin of the lower part of the breast. This tightening involves removing extra skin - and hence the vertical scar.
We think you shouldn’t have to wait to look better, and more importantly, feel better about yourself. To help our patients afford liposuction, we offer financing options. When you apply, we’ll take a look at your credit history to determine your qualification and financing amount. Upon approval, you can book a date for your procedure. Afterward, you’ll make monthly payments. Financing can help you get where you want to be sooner rather than later.
Finally, there’s the so-called scarless lift. Women who are seeking a mild lift but are dead set against leaving scars anywhere on their breasts may opt for a technique that uses a network of dissolving surgical threads inserted through tiny incisions along the collar bone, guided under the breast tissue, and then anchored to the collar bone, to create an internal bra of sorts. Scar tissue forms around the threads, theoretically providing support to lift the nipple.
