Coronavirus update: we cancelled all elective operations this past Monday for patient safety and to help “flatten the curve”..
.....
We are also minimizing office visits to only essential post op visits..
.....
I’m sure by now everyone realizes the true severity of our country’s situation. It is not safe to have elective surgery, even in a surgery center. Think about if you have a complication and need to be transferred to a hospital! We need these resources available for sick patients and family members..
.....
Since there will be no elective cases for a while, I have less new content to share. I may repost some older stuff but let me know what kind of content you’d like to see or learn more about 👇🏻..

Extreme Makeover for a Male Weight Loss Patient: lower body lift with 360 lipo, fat transfer buttocks and chest lift. My patient lost over 💯 pounds. During his 6 hour surgery, I removed 6 feet of skin and over 10 pounds of tissue..
.....
Male patients present unique challenges for weight loss surgery. The belly buttons are a different shape, their scar location is different than a woman and their scars cannot be concealed with a bikini or one piece suit. Vertical scars on the abdomen cannot be concealed. Straight scars on the chest are obvious and eye catching. Techniques for male fat grafting should not feminize the hips and buttocks. Precise scar location and positioning is critical..

Spent the morning visiting with lawmakers at the Capitol in MO about patient safety issues..
.....
We need common sense laws like truth - in - advertising so that you know the difference between a phlebotomist (person who draws blood), a nurse, chiropractor and a doctor. We need surgeons who advertise for plastic surgery procedures to be board - certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, not the “American Board of Cosmetic Surgery” or “Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons” etc..

NOT ALL BREAST LIFTS ARE THE SAME!!
.....
Immediate results after revision breast implant surgery for breast asymmetry and poor shape 1 year after breast lift with implants elsewhere..
.....
This patient had a periareolar (aka) Benelli lift with implants done one year prior. I don’t generally recommend that type of lift for the following reasons:

1. The result is a flat and “boxy” shaped breast..
2. The droopy breast tissue is not removed therefore the implant will fall to the bottom of the breast and sit low on the chest..
3. The breast crease is not elevated and the implant falls to the base of the breast and sits low on the chest..
.....
An appropriate breast lift with tissue removal from the base projects the breast and provides a cone shape while lifting the entire breast crease up, allowing the implant to sit higher on the chest wall and provide more upper pole fullness, which is what these patients desire..
.....
So the real question is why don’t all plastic surgeons do the appropriate type of breast lift? Certainly some patients want to minimize scarring. However, the real answer is that these are complex cases which can carry higher risk in less experienced hands. Plastic surgery is always a risk-reward situation. Certain surgeons can provide a lower risk while increasing the reward than others. Scars always have to be justified and when patients are educated, usually they will agree. The important key here is you have to do your homework and don’t just assume that everyone provides the same level of service..
